    Default Turkish forces shell US special forces area "by mistake".

    " contingent of U.S. Special Forces has been caught up in Turkish shelling against U.S.-backed Kurdish positions in northern Syria.
    Newsweek has learned through both an Iraqi Kurdish intelligence official and senior Pentagon official that Special Forces operating in the Mashtenour hill in the majority-Kurdish city of Kobani fell under artillery fire from Turkish forces conducting their so-called "Operation Spring Peace" against Kurdish forces backed by the U.S. but considered terrorist organizations by Turkey.
    The senior Pentagon official said that Turkish forces should be aware of U.S. positions "down to the grid." While the official could not specify the exact number of personnel present, but indicated they were "small numbers below company level," so somewhere between 15 and 100 troops."

    Turks are using massive artillery batteries. I counted 10 guns in one of them.
    So when you have that massive amount of shelling -something can go wrong,,

    Which is why WE NEEDED TO GET OUT. I didn't want US troops to be collateral damage

    This problem only began after Trump allow the Turks to do whatever they wanted to. Why the fuck aren’t you demanding troops out of SA?

    Wouldn't have been any damage if Trump hasn't abondoned the Kurds giving Turkey the green light

    SA = Saudi Arabia.

    So do you approve of Twittler withdrawing our forces from Syria? And how are they being shelled if they came home? Or are they still there, but only allowed to sit on their thumbs while they get shelled?
