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.

This reminds me of when the U.S. sent an O.S.S. mission into Vietnam, saving Ho Chi MInh's life and giving desperately needed aid, weapons and training to his forces. They fought and eventually regained control from the invading Japanese, but not after suffering through a famine that killed countless Vietnamese. Now the the U.S. leaves the Kurds, as they left the Vietnamese to fend for themselves against the brutality of French occupation. The Vietnamese were left to make a deal with the devil (China and the U.S.S.R.). The Kurds have now been forced to do the same with Al Bashar Assad. God help them.

Everyone pretends to be Kurdish allies, because they are good fighters, but none give the Kurds right to independence.

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