    Erdogan's goal here is to ethnically cleanse the northern Syrian 'Rojava' homeland of the Kurds, America's best ally in Syria for the past four years.

    These ethnic Kurds will be either killed or forcibly removed and replaced with Sunni Syrian refugees from Idlib province where Russian bombing has leveled most cities and towns.

    The YPG/YPJ Kurdish militia's bore the brunt of the fighting on the ground against ISIS and AQ in Syria.

    Trump is betraying an ally and doing his part to allow the ethnic cleansing of Rojava by his dictator friend Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Islamist AK Party.

    It's a sad day for America.
    We donít want American troops in harms way when Turkey enters Syria to fight the PKK which NATO classified as a terrorist organization.

    Turkey is a NATO ally.

    First of all, these are not really "Kurdish Groups". While most of their members are indeed Kurds, it is nowhere near exclusive to them. And most importantly, these are groups that reject all forms of Nationalism or Ethnic identity. You see, these are very belligerent Marxist-Communist organizations, and are in often violent opposition to the much more mainstream Kurdish National Council.
    In other words, this is a group of Communists who are just 1 member of the vicious multi-faction fighting in the Syrian Civil War. In fact, the PYD, YPG and other allied factions were all evicted from the Kurdish National Alliance in Syria for their extremist views.
    So what, you are actually supporting this group?
    This is the problem of simply buying what is written in an article, without knowing the groups being discussed. Even the vast majority of Kurds want the YPG and PYD eliminated.

    That's something that most Americans don't understand: being a Kurd does not necessarily make you an ally of the US.

    Really? This is your response?

    I guess you believe that all Kurds are the same. With the same goals and beliefs also.

    Like any other group, they have factions which have differing beliefs and goals. I suggest you educate yourself into learning the differences between these groups.

    Yes throw the Kurds under the bus and drive them into the protection of Iran and Assad. While you are at it, why not just cede the entire country of Syria to Putin's fine expertise. He will thank you for it and the smucks back home won't have clue....

    Nobody wants war with Turkey, but it sure as hell seems like Turkey wants war with everyone. First they sabre-rattle with the Russians, shooting down one of their warplanes.
    THEN they start threatening Saudi Arabia.
    Threatening to knock Greece into the ****ing sea.
    (And Erdogan's done this several times).
    Oh, and they've been committing ethnocide against the Kurds since at least 1978,
    on top of their likely responsibility in the Armenian ****ing genocide.

    That's not a bad way to try to weasel out of your own culpability regarding the Kurds (and their families) who will now die.

    A whole lot of people better start praying that there is no hell.

    I get the feeling Turkey will not strike the Kurds. Congress will pass veto proof legislation to place crippling sanctions on them if they even kill one Kurd.

    It just proves to anybody that this US government is totally untrustworthy when it comes to allies. The Kurds are being stabbed in the back by Donald Trump after all they have done to fight ISIS, it is totally disgusting to hand over the reigns of any region of Syria to one of the most despicable despotic rulers of that region.
