interesting development:
A convoy of about 10 armored vehicles and some trucks left the town of Rmeilan into drove into Iraq. Col. Sean Ryan, spokesman for the coalition fighting the Islamic State group, later confirmed that the US has started "the process of our deliberate withdrawal from Syria."
 

#Erdogan wants the #US to exit quicker so that the massacre can begin


“If the [pullout]is put off with ridiculous excuses like Turks are massacring Kurds, which do not reflect the reality, we will implement this decision,” Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told NTV television.

The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, who is on a regional tour, also said on Wednesday that Turkey had committed to protecting Washington’s Kurdish allies fighting Islamic State in Syria.

No they have not, stop letting you fool by this helpless autocrat who is about to ruin his country's economy. They won't secure the Kurds in Syria because they have tried to exterminate the Kurds in their own country before. Just travel to Diyarbakir and ask the Kurds what they have faced, what their friends and relatives have faced in the past. You will hear how great Erdogan tried to protect them.

What shall we do with a drunken sailor // early in the morning?


The new chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Adam Smith (D-Wash.), said Monday that President Drumpf is acting like a "drunken sailor" with regards to his decisions surrounding a troop withdrawal in Syria.

"It shows that our president literally doesn't know what he's doing. He is making it up as he goes along based on the whims of, I guess, what he sees on Fox News, or what his mood is," Smith claimed.

Actually, this is nothing new but something we knew for a very long time already. He has been watching Faux News since his presidency began, and is known to extract his ideas from it.

"There's no thought behind it," Smith added. "What we need is actually rational policy in Syria [and]on border security. All we have is the emotional rantings of a child, all right? And he goes back and forth depending on what the last person says to him."

#Trump asks #Erdoğan to promise him not to attack the #Kurds


Bolton said a commitment from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that protects the Kurds after American forces exit is something Drumpf is demanding, and that it’s just one of several conditions that have to be met before U.S. troops leave.

Why on earth would anyone ever expect a hopelessly lost dictator to promise him something not to do. This is like asking a nymhomaniac not to have sex for an entire day. It's not going to work out, even if he or she promised it on scout's honour. Stick it in your pipe and smoke it - he's going to attack them immediately after the American troops have left the spot.

"Then there is the Al Tanf garrison, which is still very strategically important in connection with our determination that Iran not... show more

ICYMI: Fallout Of Trump's Syria Withdrawal - Why Erdogan Does Not Want To Invade: President Trump's strategic decision to withdraw US troops from Syria creates some significant fallout. The US and international borg is enraged that Trump ends an occupation that is illegal under international as well as US domestic law. "That's un-American!"Defense Secretary James "Mad Dog" Mattis resigned from his position effective February 28. He disagreed with the president's decision. It was the second time in five years that an elected commander in chief had a serious conflict with Mattis' hawkishness. President Obama fired him as Central Command chief for urging a more aggressive Iran policy. Mattis is also extremely hawkish towards Russia and China.President Trump campai... show more

Lindsey Graham approves military withdrawal from Syria


Lindsey Graham, who had earlier called the withdrawal decision a "huge Obama-like mistake", told journalists: "The president assured me he is going to make sure he gets the job done.

Oh, how his mental tables have turned. First, he found it a bad idea, comparing it to an Obama-like turn, but now that Donnie did it anyway, he thinks it's all right. What a turncoat - surely he thinks he could still get a job in the Trump administration, doesn't he?

Speaking later on CNN, Mr Graham also expressed concern that the US withdrawal would leave "our allies the Kurds" in the north of Syria exposed to attacks from Turkey.

That's common sense, isn't it?

Reading on, calling it some kind of «appreciation» might be the wrong term, but at least, his criticism has lowed down, it lost its heaviness.

Less than half a decade ago there was this whole "boots on the ground" debate about #syria #war

Because the US had bombed and armed "moderate" "rebels". #trump will likely persist with one or both of these strategies, so US isn't leaving Syria alone.
 
With vacuum in #syria left for #iran and #russia to exploit (maybe #ksa and #turkey also), Iranian media responds thusly
 
Not sure I should be surprised this contradicts other things I'd previously heard and read about the YPG. In recent months I recall articles, podcasts and photos of graffiti suggesting the YPG was some kind of egalitarian, socially aware entity that we should support. Any Diasporans with more direct regional experiences care to comment?
