Thread/ These are the main points in the agreement between the #SDF and the Syrian government. #Syria
1/ The abolishment of the #SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces), with all the current Kurdish forces and military groups joining the 5th Corps (Assault Legion) under Russian control
2/ A solid guarantee of full Kurdish rights in the new Syrian constitution with autonomy which will be agreed upon by Kurdish leadership & Syrian state.

My two cents on #Kurds-Assad deal:
1) on paper, it aims to push #Turkey back from #Syria border but in reality #Russia is signalling to TR that t/ road to neutralizing YPG/PKK passes thru Damascus &thru talks w/ Kurds. So, Russians are providing TR w/ a taste of 1998 Adana pact?!
2) Russia is seeking to convince #Turkey that Moscow can fruitfully mediate btw Ankara & YPG/PKK to a) prevent war in N Syria by creating TR's buffer zones & b) help dampen TR's security concerns by deploying Syrian army in #Manbij, #Kobani & possibly elsewhere. TR's reaction..👇
3) Unless there is a bigger deal btw US-#Turkey, Ankara would prefer to have Syrian troops in the border than YPG/PKK. This depends on effectively reviving/modifying the Adana pact. If implemented swiftly & safely,the deal might (long-term) drag TR into rapprochement w/ Damascus.

That “1000” is, roughly, the entire US presence in #Syria.

What does “northern #Syria” mean? Are they being drawn down to Deir ez Zour? Are we seeing an Arab-focused last chance strategy in slow formation?
The U.S. withdrawal from #Syria is underway, as directed overnight by #Trump & supported by @DeptofDefense.

As I wrote a few days ago, opening the doors to #Turkey put the writing on the wall.

- "Making America Great Again” has never sounded so vapid."

@DeptofDefense HUGE developments in north #Syria, as the #SDF agrees a de facto surrender deal w. the #Assad regime, in return for a #Russia-backed #SAA move to block #Turkey's advances.

Looks like #Manbij, #Kobani, #Qamishli & possibly #Raqqa are all included in this agreement.

#SAA moving.

I am so glad you finally came out and said it: The #Syria Mess is #Obama’s fault as “one man” who implemented it. And “One Woman’s” fault who was “his” architect in “his” #StateDepartment: @HillaryClinton. Bravo 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
After all, in November 2011, I blew the whistle on “Both of You” And was the first to Expose your #ISIS Camp In #Turkey & Your Preparations for #Syria Operations right after #Libya @HillaryClinton #Obama. Here it is on dated & on Record: newsbud.com/2011/11/21/bfp…
Nothing like a good public confession for the soul. A few more and you may start seeing some soul cleansing.

#SDF positions in northeastern #Syria "very weak" against #Turkey-backed forces, per #SDF Gen. Mazloum Kobani Abdi, speaking thru translator on a teleconference

He describes the situation as "frustrating...We trusted the security mechanism sponsored by the United States”
“We are now preparing ourselves for a long military operation that might take more than a year,” per #SDF Gen Abdi on #Turkey incursion in NE #Syria
“They want to attack all the Kurdish towns…they want to destroy all of our area” says #SDF Gen Abdi of #Turkey's military operation in NE #Syria, saying Turkey will turn the area into "another #Idlib"

I've made my thoughts clear on how *bad* #Trump's decisions have been for #Syria policy (& the #SDF).

But let's just get something straight:

- The U.S. knowingly decided to ally with a designated terrorist organization (the #PYD/#YPG) in 2014 to fight #ISIS in #Kobani & beyond.
#pt: The State Dept, NCTC & CIA all viewed the #PYD as the #PKK's #Syria affiliate in 2013 -- that's in public documents.

That label was [quietly] removed in 2014.

In #Turkey - a #NATO state, whether we like it or not - the #PKK is viewed as *the* existential security threat.
#pt: #Turkey was complicit in terrible #Syria border control & ties to #Nusra. No doubt.

But put that aside for minute:

Imagine if a foreign state brought #ISIS to #Mexico & armed it to fight cartels, while assuring #Washington: "don't worry, they're only interested in Mexico."

Ben in Kobani, N-Syrië. Vanavond is hier herdacht dat 4 jr geleden #IS bloedbad aanrichtte onder bevolking Kobani tijdens verrassingsaanval.

230 burgers in hun huizen doodgeschoten door IS. Alleen al op deze begraafplaats 1300(!) gesneuvelde Koerdische strijders. Wat een helden.
Panoramafoto vd herdenking vanavond hier in Koerdische Kobani, NSyrie. Brandende kaarsen op begraafplaats om slachtoffers vd Kobani Massamoord te herdenken. Iedereen in deze stad heeft familieleden verloren aan IS. 1, 5, 8 geliefden weg. Zo treurig. Indrukwekkend om hier te zijn.

The #SDF's proclamation of victory today against #ISIS's territorial Caliphate is a momentous occasion worthy of genuine celebration.

What was once a territory the size of the UK is now zero. That's no small accomplishment.

The #SDF lost 11,000 killed & 21,000 wounded.
#pt: After #ISIS's capture of #Mosul, its march south in #Iraq, expansion in #Syria & genocidal threats against #Yazidis in #Sinjar & #Kurds in #Kobani, the US mobilized the largest military coalition in modern history; 79 members.

Due in large part of @brett_mcgurk's hard work.
@brett_mcgurk #pt: As the #SDF has made clear, however, the counter-#ISIS mission must now shift to a new mission - the struggle is far from over.

The now-completed "clear" phase was the easy bit; the "hold" & "build" represents the huge challenge ahead, but our commitment is now in question.
