    Default Kurds announce deal with Damascus after US pullout

    Nearly a week after the U.S. announced its decision to pull out troops from northern Syria to make way for a Turkish incursion, Kurdish forces in the country have reportedly agreed to a new deal with Damascus in a desperate bid to face off against Ankara's offensive.

    The New York Times reported that the deal-- which was announced Sunday evening-- would enable President Bashar al-Assad's forces to attempt to regain a foothold in the country's northeast. The Kurdish fighters had few options after the United States abandoned them, and it had been anticipated they would turn to Assad’s government for support.

    "An agreement has been reached with the Syrian government — whose duty it is to protect the country's borders and preserve Syrian sovereignty — for the Syrian Army to enter and deploy along the Syrian-Turkish border to help the SDF stop this aggression" by Turkey, the SDF said in a statement.

    The Washington Post reported that the deal was reached after three days of negotiations between the Kurdish forces, Russian envoys and Damascus.

    But the lefties, neocons, media and etc don’t want any good news to disrupt the Mother of All Foreign Policy Missteps by Trump lol.

    The Kurds find a new ally in Assad. Good for them, I hope it works out.

    Assad and Erdogan have a "complicated " relationship.
    1st Erdogan supported Assad / then he didn't / but they were getting closer again / maybe this stops that
    ~~

    For some reason ( like you said banshee type foreign policy screaming ) Trump looks ready to put on sanctions..

    I swear this is what I said was going to happen -if you are there- you are going to be drawn into the
    Syrian black hole of alliances

    WORSE
    is US sancitons will preclude any progress with the Erdogan upcoming meeting.
    Fucking Congress is once again fucking up Trump's ability to conduct policy (Russia etc.)

    That guy on Fox is having a apoplectic attack feeding off Lix Cheney's paranoid that If we abandon the Kurds
    we can't establish alliances in the future.. Then a rant about Obama and Iraq to try to be "fair and balanced"
    BUT THE GENERALs SAID WE GOT TO BE THERE

    Simply as a voter, I just don’t care about Assad lol.

    I don’t care about—or much for, Erdogan: he’s a closet Islamist. What I care about is extracting ourselves, instead of inserting ourselves in the region.

    He is that -he thinks he's an Islamic AtatŁrk.

    I want us to be able to deal with the bastard -sanctions preclude and hurt that effort.

    Fraking Lindsey, and Cheney and the rest of the neocon clingers want us there forever -
    they are just too chicken to say do.

    Syria should have been in the rear view mirror 9 months ago

    Nothing like spending billions in Syria and then retreat and hand over all the Progress to Assad and the Russians.

    They can ‘not say so’ all day, but it’s implicit in their arguments that they have no end game objective: there will *never* be a time when withdrawing from Syria can be done without ‘abandoning our allies’ the Kurds. Turkey vs the Kurds is a 100’s year old intractable tribal issue and there’s literally nothing we can do to change that.

    Now is a good a time as ever.

    Are you aware of Iraqi Kurdistan right next door to Syria?

    "Iraqi Kurdistan or Southern Kurdistan[1] (Kurdish: باشووری کوردستان‎, romanized: BaşŻrÍ KurdistanÍ) is the Kurdish-populated region incorporated into Iraq and considered by Kurds as one of four parts of Greater Kurdistan.[2] Much of the geographical and cultural region of Iraqi Kurdistan is governed by the Kurdistan Region (KRI) (Kurdish: هه*رێمی کوردستان‎, romanized: HerÍmÓ Kurdistan) which is an autonomous region recognized by the Iraqi constitution.[3]"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraqi_Kurdistan

    Something similar was/is what the Syrian Kurds wanted/want.

    The nasty, smelly, yellow traitor Trumpf has handed Syrian Kurdistan back to the Government. Isn't it lovely to have a senile scumbag in charge of the centre of capitalism!

    It's Obobo's bloody war. And the mission was never to protect the Kurds and establish a Kurdish state.

    I condemn the National Socialist German Workers Party, the Socialist Democrat Hate Whitey Party,... and Socialist Workers party heroes, Mao, Chavez, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Stalin, Castro and Kim Jung Un.
