Who would have guessed this would happen?..
The Trump and his 'infinite wisdom' now has blood all over his face and hands...
And of course The bloody Trump will do nothing but count his profits from the Trump/Erdogan business/financial ties.

The west keeps watching the numbers and make sure that there is more deaths than new children in the region.

Pulling Out all the Stops (aka How to make a Noise)
With tremendous unmatched wisdom
Trump knew what he should do
His ally he would throw
Under the bus to rue
The time that they agreed
To help the 'Ol US
But they did not expect
Trump - how could they guess
That defenders of truth
Justice and Liberty
Would make common cause at first
But then turn and walk away
Knowing full well the consequence
Could only turn out grim
But then what cares the Donald
When it's just all about him
Now with gunfire that surrounds
The ISIS beating Kurds
We wonder how Trump got the job
Of President - absurd
This narcissistic imbecile
What can be the attraction
Of one who makes up policy
Simply to cause distraction
For cynical as that may be
The man has got past form
In massive dissembling
For him that is the norm
So I won't apologise
If the conclusion that I've reached
Is the abandonment of Kurds
Coincides with Trump's being impeached
Not simply through misfortune
Or mere unlucky happenstance
But through calculated evil
While the whole world looks askance
As Trump pivots to avoid
His ever growing loss of face
And his removal from office
In ignominious disgrace

This is disgusting no war should be happening. I'm sorry for those who didn't want any part of this.

So ... were the ISIS fighters sentenced to life imprisonment? The commentator is exactly right: we never had a strategy in Syria, so why keep pursuing a non-strategy?

Everyone who wants us to go over and help the Kurds better go sign up for the military.
