The US is so much nicer, they don't even use the US citizens because of the backlash back home when the dead or Rambo shoot'em all scarred suicidal guys come back; they send Syrians instead. Before they used Blackwater aka Academi, tens of thousands of them.
Right? I think it's very nice of the er, participating actors to send advisors to the region. There aren't enough hot spots in which to train your special forces, sell tech, snatch a Dollar or stymie your adversaries.

Re: Syria - It ain't over till it's over

Adding to the country's many rival factions, a new alliance appears to have been forged between pro-government forces and Kurdish militias.

Forces loyal to the Syrian government will be deployed to the Kurdish-held region of Afrin "within hours" to help defend a month-long offensive by Turkey, the Syrian official news agency, SANA, said Monday.

Getting ever more complicated.

Makes some sort of sense, if the US are not helping the Kurds against the Turkish invasion then the Kurds are pushed towards finding other partners!

I assume Assad does not want Erdogan to take a chunk of Syria!

So at the very least a Kurdish autonomous region is a given if Assad stays in power until after the war.

Look! Look! We're barrel bombing our own people again! fighting the Turks, helping the poor Kurds!
"In Geneva, the UN children’s fund issued a blank “statement” to express its outrage at the casualties among Syrian children, saying it had run out of words."
