At #MEIconf , Gen. Votel says the recently reformed policy in #Syria to retain a troop presence “is a good one,” but we must “clarify objectives” & “remove all ambiguity about our presence.” Also, we should encourage talks between “the Kurds” & #Turkey - via KRG. @MiddleEastInst
"It is important for [Trump] to create a mood in which the Turks need us a lot worse than we need them. He needs to try to preserve the interests of the Kurds because we really let them down a few weeks ago." - ex-CIA Director James Woolsey [via #NewsmaxNow with @JohnB_Newsmax ]
The U.S. presence in Deir Ezzor may complicate the Kurds’ already tenuous position there.
Turkish state-backed media hails a “successful operation” to “neutralize” an unarmed 35-year old woman working to unite Arabs, Christians, and Kurds in NE Syria. Ms. Hevrin Khalef was reportedly dragged from a vehicle and shot to death. That’s a war crime.
Let us be clear: The president has sided with authoritarian leaders of Turkey and Russia over our loyal allies and America’s own interests. His decision is a sickening betrayal both of the Kurds and his oath of office.
US officials tell me ALARM BELL RINGING among diplomats in DC that U.S. could one day be held responsible for Crimes Against Humanity for ethnic cleansing of Kurds'>Syrian Kurds by opening the door to it, watching it, encouraging it (Trump's tweets and statements) and not stopping it.
