The Kurds should have known better. 1,000 US troops would not have been able to hold off the Turkish army. Too few troops to secure the area. I agree with the withdrawal of the US troops. However, what the US should have done is ordered the Syrian Democrat Forces to turn over the ISIS terrorists to Syria for trial under their Sharia Law. Then, US forces should have again ordered the Kurds to give up control over their territories to Syrian forces. That would have pit Syria, Hezbollah, Russia and the Kurds against Turkey. Would have been more of an even match. Leaving promptly, without a good exit strategy is wrong on all levels!
