A bad situation in Northeast Syria is about to get much worse. Sources tell me that US officials have just informed the Syrian Kurds that Turkey is likely to attack on air and ground in next 24 hours. The US will do nothing. Targets are Tal Abyad and Ras al Ayn....

...Ironically Tal Abyad was the main supply route for ISIS in 2014-15 through an open border from Turkey. Turkey refused repeated requests from US to shut border. That's a big reason why US decided to partner with SDF, which took the town in the summer of 2015.

...I'm also told that Turkish attack appears coordinated with the Russians. Russian-backed forces are mobilizing to invade the Kurdish area from the south — towards Tabqa and other spots. Meanwhile, ISIS is mobilizing sleeper cells in Raqqa and attacks have taken place tonight.

...And finally there is the scary issue of the thousands of ISIS detainees and families, who may be breaking out of camps and prisons after Turkish attack--with NO American back-up plan. This is a major disaster coming at us because of Trump's decisions. Hours left to stop it...

Trump is a Russian asset. He continues to carry out Putin’s agenda to destroy democracy from Syria to US. Trump’s betrayal is catastrophic to the Kurds & to Americans. Resulting terrorism will be his Reichstag Fire to join the dictator club & call off impeachment AND elections.

Will those who have had faith in President Trump understand all the damage he is doing to America and its allies?

We’ve failed the Kurds more often than we’ve helped them. I don’t know why they keep trusting us.
