  1. Mr. Richard Silverstein.

    Trump is hurting the Kurds.
    Who will fight Daesh now?

    Why is Trump giving Syria to Assad, Putin, Turkey and Iran?
    Assad and Putin kill the Syrians.

    Iran also hurts Iraqi and Syrians.

  2. It would appear that hatred of Trump trumps perception of reality in the Middle East.

    The fact of the matter is that — vide Clinton’s emails — whatever we have claimed, at Israel’s behest we have been engaged for the last eight years in a project to destroy the Syrian state.

    Now we’re abandoning that singularly evil endeavor. But because it is Trump that is abandoning it, you condemn our step away from darkness. Simply out of spite, you would have us continue to work to make it always winter and never Christmas.

    The Kurdish region in Syria and Iraq was the playground for Israel’s Mossad. Trump is undermining the security of Israel. The terror groups of the Kurds in Syria are linked to the PKK and are outlawed in the US and Europe. PKK sympathizers in Europe have funded the armed resistance of HPG, PYD and YPG. See US Foreign Policy during the Bush administration – Richard Armitage – and Joe Biden in 2006 and 2016:

    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on that Washington recognized the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in Turkey was as much of a threat to Ankara as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), condemning it as “a terror group plain and simple.”

    The Obama/Biden administration failed in the Syrian uprising where a coalition was build on jihadists and nation states Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Emirates and Qatar. Clinton’s preference was to deal with Erdogan’s Turkey and Qatar (Muslim Brotherhood). The Iran deal was another slap in the face of the Saudi monarchy after Obama failed to retaliate for the Ghouta gas attack in August 2013. No surprise a new bond was sought by the Gulf States – minus ‘enemy’ Qatar – with Israel and the Republicans in Congress.

    President Trump foolish campaign to embolden the rightwing regime of Netanyahu in Israel – Embassy in Jerusalem, settlement expansion, the Trump Heights of Syria and soon the annexation of the Jordan Valley – has led to anger in the Muslim world. Trump’s lack of attention to the Persian Gulf and the attack on the Saudi oil facilities must have placed the Saudi monarchy on edge. No surprise Russia president Putin made a triumphant tour this week with visits to Riyadh and Abu Dhabi. Appears Putin or someone in his entourage made a contribution of a few billions to Salman’s Vision 2030 investment project on the border of the Red Sea.

  5. I remember many years ago, saying rather naively something along the lines of “maybe we should help the Kurds.” I didn’t have a clear idea of what sort of help. I was, as I say, naive, and spoke more out of sentiment. My interlocutor, who knew something of these matters, bit my head off with the reply “you’d be helping terrorists!” before launching into a lecture about the PKK being classified as terrorists – although I had not mentioned the PKK, but only “the Kurds.” He conflated the too, but I still wonder if he was right.
