Donald Trump’s decision to back down in northern Syria now not only has cost our erstwhile allies, the Kurds, in their blood. Now Trump’s cowardice may well result in American blood spilled, as well.
Late news Saturday reports that as a result of the Trump surrender in Syria, Turkish forces have begun firing on US troop placements near the Syrian town of Kobane.
Multiple sources have indicated that the Turkish attack against the Americans was deliberate. It was a specific effort to drive the Americans away from a specific position by the border, as Turkish troops invade Syria.
“This was not a mistake,” said Brett McGurk, a former US envoy in the region.
A fellow member of NATO, Turkey is supposed to be an American ally. However, Trump has shown how easily he can be rolled.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is now acting accordingly and it’s a dark day for American prestige and its place in the world indeed.
