    This is so fucking disappointing. The Syrian Democratic Forces have been instrumental in defeating the Islamic State. Rojava, the autonomous region the SDF defends, is by far the best, if not only bastion of democracy and secularism in Syria. The United States just handed a democratic, decentralized, autonomous region of Syria, which was its best and most capable ally in the region, over to Erdogan and his neo-Ottoman policies. This is nothing short of a betrayal and a disaster.
