They were never real "enemies" you propagandists. The real enemies are the radicals that YOU support.

Wow! Serious twist to the complexity of this battle field. Bashar Al Assad saving his own territory really, I really dont think it's to save the Kurds.

The compassion shown to the Kurds from President Assad and the Syrian Arab Army is commendable.

It’s so sad to see the Kurds having to try to defend their land because the USA ditched them.

I've not heard of many instances were the Kurds and the Syrian army have fought one another, so I wouldn't say they were huge enemies. Turkey on the other hand, they despise the Kurds and have been supporting ISIS since the beginning of the war. Heck, I'm hearing rumors that they are using ISIS to attack the Kurds right now.

I've heard some strange statements, by the Kurds, that US forces told them to destroy all their defenses along the boarder with Turkey and I'm wonder what deal Trump made with the Turks. Are the Turks going to escalate a war with Assad or is Trump in on a deal with Syria and Russia? I don't really know because I'm not getting any real news on this situation!
