    ... the United States was left without the "most effective combat partner" ...

    The US is accustomed to pulling chestnuts out of the fire with the wrong hands.
    Now in search of Kurdish successors, they are rushing about in the Middle East - they are looking for whom to put in front of them.
    The Egyptians sent a forest, the Saudis sort of "under the peak" took.

      And Russia cannot do it with their own hands. And the Kurds were betrayed, but could be a great ally.

      it’s only in cheap American cinema that they can see something from the satellite. The reality is much more prosaic.
