<<Showing even less tact or humanity than usual, Trump mocked the onetime American allies >>

No one is able to show the nature and content of this "alliance" despite repeated requests.

I don't doubt the Kurds hoped the United States might carve out an independent homeland for them from territory in Russia, Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran, but wishful thinking does not create an "alliance."

I contrast this with Turkey, where we have a treaty ratified by the United States Senate.

<< who are facing ethnic cleansing >>

Yep, those are the risks you take when you take up arms against your government.
