What a mess!

The impression I get is that the US has no real long-term strategy and is just improvising, assuming that no one will mess with them on the ground.
But this all plays into Putin's hands who would like to see Erdogan in his corner.

My question is: How should Assad proceed? At the very least, he needs to recapture the oil fields east of Deir Ezzor and the headwaters of the Taqba Dam. But what then?

And will the US really attack the internationally-recognized government of Syria to defend the Kurds???

I guess we'd better ask McMaster because I'm not sure Trump has an opinion on the matter.
