I thought you might find this article of interest as we have looked at several articles together over the last year that have dealt with the Kurds and their future after fighting so well with our Special Operations, Tier 1, units. Many, including the Kurds, fear we will again abandon them, a mistake in my view, as they are one of our few allies in the region who have been not only loyal but can fight. This article, Syria’s Kurds Return to Al Assad’s Fold, looks at a potential rapprochement with Assad’s government. I am not informed enough to have an opinion yet on whether this is a good thing for US interest, but my guess is that it is not. We’ll see. And I forward more data as I find it.
