Here is a report from a US or European anarchist in Afrin. Notice that his
entire narrative is about fighting ISIS and Turkey. Not a hint that the
PUD/YPG opposes Assad. And it's clear that he got this from the PYD/YPG.
Here's the best he can say: "
*Overthrowing Assad by military means is a dead project—or, at least, the
things that would have to happen to make it plausible again in the near
future are even more horrifying than the regime is. I hope that somehow,
someday, there can be some kind of settlement between the regime and
YPG/YPJ, and the regime and the rebels in Idlib, and everyone else who has
been suffering here."*
A "settlement" with Assad? Really?
