TRUMP MISTAKE: ALLOWING TURKISH INVASION OF NORTHERN SYRIA

President Trump makes some of his worse decisions while on the telephone with world leaders. Not only is he subject to their flattery (which they know how to use to their benefit) but he tends to bend over backwards to please them in response. This week in a telephone conversation with Turkish dictator Recep Erdogan he assented to Erdogan’s demand from over a year ago to let them enter Turkey and establish a buffer zone where Turkey can resettle the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees that have burdened Turkey since the beginning of the US-created terror attacks on Syria. But as part of that strategy, and without emphasizing that to Trump, Erdogan intends to drive out or destroy the Syrian Kurds which occupy northern Syria. Erdogan calls them terrorists because the US-backed YPG Kurds are affiliated with the homegrown Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) which represents about 20% of the Turkish population, and which has been fighting for independence from Turkey. So while the Turkish Foreign Minister plays lip service to Syrian sovereignty, Turkey has already begun the invasion and occupation of northern Syria. While Trump claims he is fulfilling a campaign promise to remove troops from Syria, this isn’t really a pullout at all since only two observation posts in the path of the Turkish invasion are pulling out. There are thousands of other US troops elsewhere in Syria protecting US-backed terrorist rebels. To receive a one-time free sample copy of the brief, email us at editor at worldaffairsbrief.com
