Blood or land.
Erdogan motive is to recreate the Ottoman Empire.

This is what I tweeted yesterday it has references to biblical prophecy.

#BREAKING: before Erdogan call, staffers were working on plans for peaceful and coordinated withdrawal of US forces in #Syria, including transferring power to international peacekeepers. Latest from @JimLaPorta @ShaolinTom and me for @Newsweek…
The NSC official said the def team had "presented the president with many different options on how to achieve withdrawal from Syria within anywhere from six months to one month...The prez says America 1st—but he doesn't understand how to make that happen strategically."
Essentially Trump ignored the plans from his own staff which had been working on plans for withdrawal, by deciding after call to just retreat. Staffers knew that chaos would ensue, and were hoping to head that off, even if they disagreed with pullout.
