As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following opinion editorial written by Tom Rogan and published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Summoned by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was in Sochi, Russia, on Tuesday. In a communique following the meeting, the two leaders agreed that Russian forces would supervise a Kurdish withdrawal from an area of northern Syria contested by Turkish forces.
But that’s just the paper headline. This is a big win for Putin.
The article goes on to state the following:
While the cease-fire will generally be on pro-Turkish terms, it will further suck the NATO member state into Moscow’s orbit. Putin will force the Kurds to choose between annihilation and submission under a condition of relative but not total independence (the Kurdish energy economy will go to Syrian dictator Bashar Assad and Russia). In these outcomes, Putin will further diminish American credibility, while strengthening his economic and military hand in the Middle East.
“To be clear, this will not be good for America,” Rogan wrote.

If nothing else, Trump should look in the mirror. This isn’t an America First foreign policy.
