US out of Syria would include ending US support - or indulgence - for its NATO ally, Turkey, who should also exit Syria.

Russia - legitimately in Syria - seems to have placed limits on Turkish action in Syria.

But I got to thinking: Since the US has intervened so decisively on the side of the Kurds, who are uncritically admired by these same lefts, what has been their position? Are they demanding that US troops leave Afrin and stop aiding the Kurds? Does anybody know? (I know they were silent about US military action in Raqqa.)
