Defense Secretary Mark Esper defended President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria during an interview with Fox News’s Chris Wallace, insisting that Turkey was ready to invade the country to attack Kurdish forces regardless of the U.S. actions.
In the face of questioning from Wallace, who suggested Turkey might not have gone through with the offensive if Trump had not removed the 50 U.S. troops, Esper said the U.S. could not have prevented it.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I think they were fully committed,” Esper said of Turkey. “We are not going to go to war against Turkey, that’s not what we signed up for.”
