Pentagon—US special forces in Syria blend in with Kurds with the insignia of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) on their shoulders. Meanwhile, US Warms to Assad Because Syrian Regime is Better Than ISIS, so the US is backing another deadly dictator. Only the commodities can get free. The irony of the “US-backed alliance of Syrian militias” and their advance against Isis is that the ‘alliance’ is largely Kurdish whom some accused of attacking, with Russia, other revolutionary forces. Do “the Kurds think that Turkey will allow their mini-state to survive?” Doubtful since the Turkish army crossed border into Syria’s Qamishli, extending borderline with Rojava, and it’s an anti-state.
