NES = Northeast Syria.
From the blog of the acerbic and iconoclastic Carlton Meyer his comments regarding the American withdrawal from Syria and the alleged abandonment of the Syrian Kurd YPG.
"Oct 14, 2019 - The Results of Stupidity in Syria"
"The fake news about Syria in the American media is based on three lies."
* "First, the Kurds [YPG] are not American allies."
* "Second, the fleeing Kurdish terrorist army [YPG] will not leave a gap that ISIS will fill".
* "Third, Trump didn’t green light anything."
Devoted readers to the blog need to read the whole entry for themselves.
AND WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON AN ASPECT OF LIE # 3 AS IDENTIFIED BY CARLTON MEYER!
* "The Turks have more air power in the region and resistance was futile."
See prior blog entries. Turkish air force their combat capability severely diminished in the aftermath of the 2016 purge. Front-line combat aviators, staff and command personnel all gone. Personnel crucial and now the ranks of such persons decimated.
