I bet(and hope), that does not pay off in the longterm.
And turkey btw. will always be on turkeys side first.
Hasn't that same "tribalism" always existed? Isn't this the same people of the World who both carried and advanced math and engineering while the West fell into the fuedalism?
All these so-called tribes seemed alright under single rule of the Ottoman Empire, and wasn't that broken up by the West who then began carving out new countries often splitting these tribes?
Or you can hate people because they are not your tribe or religion... and then the West moves in an exploits that tribalism... And everyone is miserable and murdering in killing each other. The Ottomans were making wars on everyone around them for the longest time. There was no tolerance for anyone other than Orthodox versions of faiths like Islam.
Point being economic power structure is a lot more productive and stable than one based on tribalism or religion... As long as you play by its rules... Otherwise your own tribalism is exploited and you are soon turned into a fool.
There are more mass shootings in the US this year than there are days. Last year there were were significantly more workplace murders than days in the year...and the number continue increasing.
>You see most people that work getting enough food to eat and housing. etc. etc.
Thats very nice for those people who "have" work. There are an estimated 5 million men in the US between age 18-35 who aren't even considered part of the work force and never will because the opportunities don't exist (sure you can argue they do, and even point to unemployment rates just like Trump). How do you think this tribe of 5 million men in the prime of their life feel about everyone else?
There are tens of millions who are uninsured and don't have access to health care, how do you think these people feel about the politicians who have the best healthcare in the world for them and their entire family paid by the taxpayes in addition to their $200,000+ salary? There are millions upon million who are indebted and will never find their way out in their entire lifetime. There are a million students defaulting on their student loans every year. Suicide and mass shootings are at all time highs, and personal finances are a significant percentage of both (i.e. haves and have nots)
I understood the news so, that the US forces left. And if there are some remaining, than at know headquarters. But before they were patrolling the area together with SDF. They definitely withdraw from that.
CNN source, telling similar, but yes, aparrently also do not say anything about whether all US troops left the area.
The article itself carries headline: Turkey-Syria border: All the latest updates
And contains text: The move came after the United States announced it was withdrawing its troops from the region
The whole thing makes no sense anyway. The west really need to leave the region and let them sort it out. The League of Nations has been disbanded for 7 decades now...
But in reality we did. We invaded Iraq. We let chaos reign there, in major part because we disbanded the Iraqi army and did nothing to replace it, remember there were no real plans for the post iraq world. We caused this.
Yes, before us there were endless warms between confusing groups. But we made it worse.
the sunk cost fallacy shows us it's not rational to double down on mistakes. so what is your proposed plan forward?
