Donald Trump gives Turkey go-ahead to invade Northern Syria and take custody of ISIS fighters

DONALD Trump has given the go-ahead for Turkey to invade Northern Syria and take custody of ISIS fighters captured over the past two years.

It comes after repeated threats from President Erdogan to launch a military assault on the Kurdish forces in Northern Syria, many of whom his government considers terrorists. It was not clear whether that meant the US would be withdrawing its 1,000 or so troops completely from northern Syria.The announcement has renewed fears of a mass slaughter of Kurdish fighters allied with the US in a years-long campaign against ISIS.

The announcement prompted the resignation in protest of then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and a coordinated effort by then-national security adviser John Bolton to try to protect the Kurds.

Just don't betray those brave Kurdish fighters. They're actually more of an ally than Turkey is.
