Because the Turks were going to attack? Let's remember, we do not have a treaty with the Kurds.

Given your comprehensive knowledge of internation law, geopolitical policy, and Trump, it seems pointless for any of us to try thinking of the cause. If it's got you stumped obviously none of us could ever hope to figure out the reason.

Trump is taking a lot of crap after turkey attacked the Kurds the second he withdrew. So why did he do it , especially when he did it???
1) This isn’t a specific topic I have been all over, but I wonder if it is not something petty like....
Bolton was a big “pro-Syrian involvement“ guy, and Bolton pissed him off..so he pulled out to spite Bolton specifically.. ...
I’m not sure it was Bolton specifically, you might can fill I the blank with whatever person he hired and fired..
2) to distract from the impeachment stuff... just to change the narrative...
3) someone told him the Syrian people did not like him.. lol crazy, but I can see it..
4) russia told him to.

People who go to war always make someone rich. I think Trump is ready to destroy Bolton.

Serious strategy. After Erdogan accused the U.S. of participating in the attempted coup in 2016 Erogan moved closer to Russia.
Now Erdogan and Russia are at odds and the EU and others are starting to take some responsibility for their concerns in the M.E.
Endless wars make no sense and only produce the terrorist mindset through "blowback."
Remember how well we helped the Libyan peoples by our intervention? Yeah, I don't either.
