US leaving northern Syria to the Turks (also leaving them in charge of the captured ISIS fighters)

None of our business.  So...ok. 

This gonna be the line when the Turks follow China's lead and earnestly, forcibly relocating Kurds and the slow genocide begins? Or it kicks off a regional war for Kurdish independence, threatening what little stability there is, driving hundreds of thousands of refugees towards Europe again (and strengthening right wing governments across the world in the process)? Or when the blackmail of our actual allies returns where Edrogan threatens to release captured ISIS fighters into the wild in Europe?

I guess more to the point, we shouldn't have gotten involved in Syria to begin with.  European powers?  Maybe.  Russia?  Maybe.  Other Middle Eastern powers?  Definitely.  But Syria never threatened us or attacked us once the civil war started, so I have a hard time believing we should be involved.

We shouldn't have, but we're there. You can't put Humpty Dumpty back together.

 

Europeans and Russians, by proximity, have an interest in being involved, as shown from the refugee crisis. I would agree that North and south Americans had no business there

There is absolutely no way for Congress to block this.

Congress can override the president on literally anything, just need the votes.

That's what I thought. Nice words from a powerless man.

What is the mechanism to override this?

Republicans (probably): "This is very troubling and my family and I will pray and ask God for guidance."

Narrator: ISIS was basically toast when he got to Washington, and the main goal was not letting the kurds get rolled, now the kurds are going to get rolled.

I can’t wait for NYT and WaPo to scoop Trump’s real motives behind this decision.

 

I give it 48-72 hours.
