      Good question. If these were Israeli allies, best believe the US wouldn't leave them. But, the Kurds, they will use to defeat ISIS and then toss aside.

        We're not "sacrificing" anyone. We just aren't going to "sacrifice" American lives fighting their war for them. Big difference.

          ISIS isn't America's war? Under Obama it was our war and a war we needed to be tougher on. Under Trump, ISIS is no longer our war. Spineless hypocrites.

            The Arab militias Turkey are mainly using as ground troops are recirculating ISIS slogans – because a fair few are former ISIS.

            The Kurds did the bulk of the fighting to defeat them, but the situation isn't over. Like this ISIS may well stage a comeback under the wings of Turkey, after a US go-ahead. We'll just assume Trump had no idea about any of it...

              Too many advisers and staff who would know and most definitely informed him. There's absolutely 0 possibility he didn't know.

                He doesn't read and he only intermittently listens. And going by the snippets of info about the internal workings of the current White House, the way to deal with Trump is to feed him desired info, filtering out undesired info, while continuously flattering his ego. The US govt intoto is now an enabler of this.

                He has brought a downright Roman-emperor-style to US foreign policy. While making the US State Department and traditional, professional, diplomacy defunct.

                  Why should we fight for the Kurds? If it's so critical, why in't your country fighting for them?

                  What is in it for America?

                    The US did not have to fight for the Kurds. Showing political support and not withdrawing would not have led the Turks to start an invasion against present US troops. It was not Sweden and Finland who wanted the Kurds' help in Iraq. It was the US. So, this definitely looks like the US sold former allies out. And it is not just that they sold them. it is also the way the did it. One phone call led an impulsive American CIC to give a green light for a Turkish attack which did not even give more than a week of warning to the Kurds who were brother in arms just 24 hours before the phone call.

                        Do you remember when the Kurds were fighting each other? Of course not because it doesn't fit the Globalist, neo Con, leftist narrative. Propaganda isn't usually misinformation but selective information.

                          This is another case of my saying Let them fight. Sell arms to anyone and everyone over there with cash to spend. Let them have a massive blowout, knockdown, no prisoners war among themselves. At the end we get a winner and that finishes such wars for decades, possibly centuries or longer, to come.

                          Get the Iraqi's and Iranians involved. Let's have them all wreck their economies and nations killing each other. In the end, it'll be said and done and we can get on to something else since the results will be final, no exchanges, no refunds, no warranty.

                          That works for me.

                            An ISIS resurgence will be the direct result of his retreat.

                              Not initiating a war with Turkey.

                              From what I have been able to determine canvasing defense blogs and such is that Turkey initiated the attack, and didn't care if Washington liked it or not. That put the U.S. in between the Kurds and Turkey. If U.S. troops stayed, and were fired upon (which has happened) and casualties resulted, does the U.S. A) Go to war with Turkey (remembering there are U.S. bases in Turkey with many U.S. troops (mostly air force support personnel), and secret stuff (documents, equipment, nukes), or B) Get the hell out of the way and hope for the best?

                              Are the Kurds worth going to war with Turkey? That is the question. What do you think ought to be the answer?
