Secretary of Defense Mark Esper made clear that the US did not promise the Kurds an own country.

"“We live up to our obligations, and our obligation, our agreement, our understanding with the Kurds was this, that we would work together to fight in Syria to defeat ISIS,” Esper said. “But nowhere, at no point in time did we tell the Kurds, we will assist you in establishing an autonomous Kurdish state in Syria nor would we fight against the longstanding ally Turkey on your behalf.”"

..we didn't even ''promise'' one in Iraq, did we?
..even just promising protection is very complicated and difficult
