US Defies Turkey’s Demands, Won’t Withdraw From Manbij

Posted by M. C. on January 30, 2018

The US has mostly just ignored those warnings…Recip Erdogen has decided to use toothpicks to prop open Washington’s eyes.

This will last as long as it takes Erdogen to close a US base.  Then an “agreement” will be reached.

Erdogen will be the winner.  US freedom lovers, taxpayers and ISIS fighting Kurds will be the losers.

Turkey’s demands that the US immediately and unconditionally withdraw from the Syrian city of Manbij have been rejected, with Central Command chief Gen. Joseph Votel saying that the US has no intention of withdrawing just because Turkey says to

This has been a problem long coming, as Turkey has been complaining about US support for the Kurdish YPG for years, and has telegraphed that they’d eventually invade Syria to get them. The US has mostly just ignored those warnings…

Be seeing you
