    Really insightful post on anticipating the Erdogan-Trump meet on May 16 re: Turkey-Kurds-USA. Al-Monitor is a good source to start with.
    Syria might just become a frozen conflict most will agree with. Except for Erdogan, Obama, and John Kerry, who is most likely checking his calendar, to see if the world has time-travelled back to the 19th century.

    President Trump is, above all, an advantageous (as opposed to the appalling results of the so-called “deals” negotiated by his predecessor) deal maker (http://www.businessinsider.com/the-art-of-the-deal-donald-trump-leadership-2017-1). I would anticipate that the outcome of the negotiations will be advantageous to the USA. I trust that it will take into account that our only allies in the region are the Kurds.

    As I have repeatedly written in these pages. It is time to dump the Turks. Throw them out of NATO, Leave Incirlik and say goodbye.

  • Why did he congratulate Erdogan on winning his highly controversial referendum? I doubt even most Republican voters view that favorably…
