Donald Trump And The "stab" In The Back To The Kurds – Télam

If Donald Trump believed that the withdrawal of US troops from Syria would serve to pacify that troubled region, the Turkish raid on the Kurdish militias, once allied to the United States, highlights that Recep Tayyip Erdogan does not respect Washington's advice.

What some Republicans consider as a betrayal of the Kurds, after five years of military alliance, will probably cause a new wave of millions of refugees (more than 100,000 people have fled, according to the UN), in addition to destabilizing the entire Middle East area .


The Kurds were vital in defeating the fundamentalists of the Islamic State (IS). That is why Trump's radical turn of abandonment brought him some criticism from Republicans themselves and also from Democrats.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said that a precipitous US withdrawal from that area only benefits Russia, Iran and the IS, many of whose combatants are in Kurdish prisons.
