How does Turkey and Iraq get along? I understand there is a Kurdish population there, too - which is where we turned our backs previously.
Turkey couldn't care less about Iraq.
The Kurds land is on the border of Syria, Turkey, Iraq.... and maybe also into Iran (any should feel free to correct me on that).
In our fight agains Al Qaeda... and more recently ISIS... the Kurds have been indispensable.
They chose not to separate from Iraq (at "our" influence) and have helped stabilize Iraq (to a point). In the face of Shia vs Sunni conflict, they have taken the high road.
They... their fighters were at the core of defeating ISIS.
If it were not for the Kurds working with us (the USA) the entire area would be far far worse...
The way Trump has abandoned them makes me sick.
I have good friends who worked with and fought with the Kurds in our fight against ISIS.
Of all the things Trump has done, this is perhaps the worst.
