“In the last 24 hours, we learned that [the Turks] likely intend to extend their attack further south than originally planned, and to the west,” Esper said in a pre-taped interview with “Face the Nation” on CBS.
Meanwhile, a small number of U.S. troops have left an outpost in the town of Ain Issa in northern Syria because of concerns about a Turkish incursion that is pushing into Syria, two U.S. defense official told Reuters on Sunday.

IS THE BEST PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN DO! the United States deployed its troops ILLEGALLY in that country! highlight that word ILLEGALLY' and the implications of it! EVEN WHEN IT IS NOT FAVORABLE FOR THE WARMONGERS IN WASHINGTON AND ELSE! At least 950 ISIS fighters have escaped. They were being guarded by the Kurdish, who had been left alone with this responsibility. If Turkey continues with this carnage , thousands more ISIS fighters could escape to goodness knows where.
Pls stop supporting the rioters in HK. Pls watch how the rioters treated the HK people who is against their voice, even a woman! That's what democracy and freedom they want? The mask of the justifications for the foreign interventions of the US and the West is destroyed by the unorthodox actions of President Trump in his interest for finish endless wars.
Org=Pkk=Terrorist America get your grip together. What you stand for now? For corruption, money, deals with autoritarians? Is this what US Army stands now? Running away leaving good folks behind with whom they worked just day before? Let them be crushed by tyrants? There's a food number of ex US soldiers that fight along Kurds. Wait until news that few of them got killed by Turks.
Espers is not a defense secretary, he's a weapons manufacturer lobbyist. He's not interested in the troops or the military. He's interested in his employment after this administration has ended. They justify atrocities in the name of national security, just like the Nazis. Wow! We retreated? My how the mighty US military have fallen
Thought they already had. All 50 of them? No wonder the Pentagon lost 2 trillion dollars. Good at spending. But couldn’t organize an army picnic Where is the UN in all this? CNN
