“Our policies in Syria have been dead wrong. “
US interests are best served by the Syrian government asserting control over the entire territory of the country.
As for the remnant fighters, they are Islamic terrorists and always have been. Sure, there’s at least 40 flavors of them. And Turkey, SA and the US have been their sponsors and supporters since the war began. Especially Turkey.
They do, in fact, need to die.
Unfortunately, there are a couple of million civilians in the very same ground space.
The proper way to get it done is infantry supported by precise air strikes.
The cheap way is artillery and carpet bombing.
And it’s obvious the course Syria and Russia will choose.
And it’s absolutely no different than how the US handled Japan and Germany during WWII. I cannot blame them for doing what must be done.
Too bad they will not drive to the heart of the beast in Ankara.
Wonder post Mariner. We are so busy with Stormy What;s her name and mundane sports crap- we are missing huge international entanglements that must be avoided.
