Wow, you guys are going hysterical.The PKK is a terrorist organization that has killed over 40K people. They are not a "consistent ally". They are a group Obama sold out to as a matter of necessity when the clusterfuck he created in Syria was completely out of control. The Kenyan became an ally with the terrorist group to use them to hunt down and kill another terrorist group--ISIS--because Obama could not effectively manage his way out of a wet paper bag, let alone Russian forces. Turkey is our ally and a member of NATO. We cannot side with the PKK in their desire to attack Turkey nor can we stand in Turkey's way in their desire to go after the bastards who have been killing their citizens, trying to seize part of their country, and who want to create their version of an ISIS homeland in Northern Syria and Southern Turkey.
Anybody who thinks that our troops should be caught in the middle of a no-win situation, is so full of Trump butt hurt and so ignorant of the situation that they should just turn in their citizenship at the American embassy in whatever shithole country will have them.
One could make an argument that we shouldn't support the Kurds, but that decision was made 15 years ago when Dubya Bush invaded Iraq and the Kurds were the only ones who went along with the whole deal.
The thing is, even folks in the military are horrified by Trump's selling out our interests to Turkey and Iran in Syria.
