I think this quote from an interview with the YPG/SDF military leader 
tells us a lot about the love affair between the YPG and the U.S. as 
well as about the total trust the "leftist" YPG put in U.S. imperialism. 
(which, in turn, tells us also a lot about those leftists who put trust 
in the YPG!)

"The voice of Gen. Mazloum Abdi, the Kurdish commander of the Syrian 
Democratic Forces militia, is tight and controlled as he describes 
President’s Trump’s decision

to withdraw U.S. troops from the country and leave America’s allies to 
their fate.

“This was something we never expected,” he said somberly in a telephone 
interview Saturday night from his command headquarters in northeast 
Syria. “Honestly, until now, everything the Americans told us, they 
fulfilled, and the same thing for us. . . . So we were surprised and 
confused. We were not ready for a decision like this.”

against the Islamic State*
