Syria is Obamas mess....
The Turks beseeched the Obama administration not to align with their sworn enemy, but the Obamaians told them, in effect, to sit down and shut up. Why? The American relationship with the YPG was a direct outgrowth of the greatest blunder of the Obama administration: the effort to reach a strategic accommodation with Iran.

It all began in 2014 with the siege of Kobani, a Kurdish town in Northeast Syria that was surrounded by ISIS fighters. Because the plight of the town was well-reported in the American media, Obama came under political pressure to intervene militarily to break the siege.

Until then, however, he had strenuously avoided involvement in the Syrian civil war. To be sure, he sought to avoid a quagmire, but he also was eager to avoid alienating the Iranians and the Russians.

By now, the negotiations that would lead to the Iran nuclear deal were underway. But Damascus was the close ally of both Russia and Iran, so any American intervention in Syria risked upsetting the new relationship that Obama was attempting to forge with Moscow and Tehran.

This factor is the hidden key to understanding why Team Obama gravitated to the YPG to solve its problems. The group had a long history of cordial relations with the Russians and the Iranians, and, best of all, it had no intention to topple the Assad regime. Every other group that Obama might have used to defeat ISIS had an anti-Assad agenda.

So, no, Trump is not betraying the YPG. He is seeking to restore balance to American foreign policy.

Naa, Obama was too weak to oppose the zionist globalists, just followed the trend. Even Trump much stronger character has hard time fulfilling his good intentions and standing against them. The western and US politic spectrum is contaminated by same cabalist lobby from London and Tell Aviv controlling the financial world and with it the politicians and media. I'm amazed Trump survived their attacks for such a long time, a revolution will be needed more public support to clean up this cancer.

This seems like a job for a billionaire to you?

I bet you're qualified to get me an extra packet of Sweet and Sour sauce at the drive-thru, aren't you?
