Many conservatives were very upset with Trump about his recent decisions in Syria, Turkey, and nascent Kurdistan. Leaving allies in the lurch goes strongly against the grain for many. His Democratic opponents, many of whom have long advocated we do less militarily throughout the Mideast, nonetheless found many reasons they disagreed with him on this. Much of the conservative media is now telling us how well things ended up going in Syria after all, both for us and for everyone nice. The alphabet media seem to be not mentioning it much these days. So I can find someone to tell me whatever I want if I choose carefully.
I am much more interested in what all of you here think. I accept that everything in the ME is unstable, but how unstable is this compared to other possible solutions? Who is getting hurt at present, what villains have gained a protective space to grow in power? Suggesting good reads will be fine.
