Re: The Situation in Syria - Ellie
It's true, the Kurds with their own language, customs and culture desperately want their own country. Call it Kurdistan? Turkey is very much opposed to this because much of Kurdistan would be made from Turkish territory and that's why The Turks and Kurds don't much care for each other. However, the Kurds fought with us in order to defeat Isis and Turkey never got involved and would not have gotten involved as long as we were there. If Donald had thought to seek competent advice from our career Foreign Service people, they would have told him to leave our people in place in Syria or invite the kind of catastrophe that is now unfolding there.
