Kurdish Leaders Mull Cooperation with Damascus & Moscow as Us Pulls Troops from Northern Syria

Fears that the US will do nothing to stop a Turkish military incursion into northern Syria could prompt Kurdish militias to negotiate with Damascus and Moscow, Kurdish leaders have signaled.

If US troops leave northern Syria, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) will be “forced to study all the available options,” Badran Jia Kurd, a Syrian Kurdish official with the SDF, told Reuters on Tuesday. He said that such a scenario could prompt the SDF to “hold talks with Damascus or the Russian side to fill the void or block the Turkish attack.”

His comment echoes an earlier statement from SDF General Mazloum Kobani Abdi, who said that he is considering a partnership with Damascus and its allies to fight Turkish forces crossing into northern Syria.

3. I sorta doubt Putin wants to go toe to toe with the USA.

I sure think it would be unwise to do so, unless Russia itself is endangered.

Interesting read on the Kurds/Kurdistan . . . . .

This I never knew - - -

"Western powers (particularly the United Kingdom) fighting the Turks also promised the Kurds they would act as guarantors for Kurdish independence, a promise they subsequently broke. "

If Russia and the USA go toe to toe over this, I would not be surprised if it escalated into global war . . .

(sigh)
