The Pentagon has announced that it will allocate $550 million of its 2019 budget to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a group that Turkey views as linked to a terrorist entity, the Turkish state-rune Anadolu Agency reported on Monday.

The budget will include $300 million to train and equip the SDF, and a further $250 million for a contentious “border force” that is being set up to guard the regional borders.

The United States sees the SDF as a multi-ethnic force that is an indispensable ally in the coalition against the extremist jihadist Islamic State (ISIS).

However, the force is organically linked to the predominantly-Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), a group seen by Turkey as the Syrian wing of the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). The Turkish armed forces have been involved in decades of armed conflict with the PKK, which is designated as a terrorist organisation by both Turkey and the United States.

Turkey is currently fighting the YPG in the northwest Syrian area of Afrin, in an operation that has sparked high tensions between the country and its NATO ally the United States, after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan threatened to extend the operation to nearby Manbij, where U.S. troops are stationed.

This is terrible for the Syrian people, will this war never end? :( Its been going on for more than the Span of WW2.

The SDF is a terrorist organization thats want regime change just like the FSA and ISIS, the people of Syria and Russia should treat them no different than the other rat terrorists.

Also 550 million dollars??!!! Do you know how many Americans could be taken out of poverty if they spent that on their own people instead of matters that are far from their own shores? Think about that number guys, millions of Americans dont even have adequate health care but they're spending it on terrorists to overthrow legitimate governments.

It's such a shame how many Americans dont even know whats going on in the world

Seriously? Officials in Washington, with a few troops on the ground, are going to deter terrorist organizations, constrain Iran, end sectarian fighting, cow Moscow, and create a democratic Syria? Washington spent decades wrecking the region through misguided meddling and now is going to fix the mess in a few months or couple years? It is a delusion, a fantasy.

And at the same time the US has no plans to give money for the rebuilding of Iraq:

If anyone in the world still thinks that the US government give a damn about the people in the middle east then they are absolute fools, no excuses at this point of time anymore.

This is all a game of power for them.

Couple of days ago the french president said that if the Syrian government is proved to use chemical weapons, he would attack syria, as if he is the savior of mankind because he has a gold heart.

At the same time, they did nada when saddam(la) used chemical weapons, many even helped and enabled him knowings this. May Allahسُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى take them all.

Today we read reports of Turkish troops using chemical weapons against the kurdish militia in Syria, will this mean that Frances baguette president will attack Turkey? I dont think so.

And when israel uses chemical weapons, no french savior is to be seen either:

The funny thing is that if you read any western commentary, they always stress that Israel has been completely neutral with regards to what has happened in Syria.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The evidence is that western leaders have been talking about the removal of Assad with such conviction that you'd think it was a religious belief. Given the interest that Israel has taken in more distant countries such as Iran and Iraq it's inconceivable that it does not have a 'view' regarding Assad and a country on its door step.

If the strength of western opinion is so strongly against Assad, I think it's a safe bet that they've been given the green light from Jerusalem.

Plan A must have been the removal of Assad and its replacement with a more pliant Sunni regime, such as in Jordan. Since Plan A seems to have failed, what they are looking at is Plan B, which is many more years of instability.

Turkey is the worst offender out of all of them. Everyone can agree if Turkey didnt allow terrorists through its borders this could've all been prevented. The most sickening thing is its trying to show itself as a good guy even though its trying to rearm the FSA or in other words the Free Saudi Army and restart the whole conflict, curse ErDOGan.

Well, there is only one country that has truly gained from the chaos around it so far... stealing a TV from a mall is not a big issue when the mall is on fire. If the muslim countries were at peace and organized, where would their attention direct to?

Erdogan only cares about Erdogan, this is for sure. So many of the idiots from the west that joined daesh traveled thru turkey and went land route into Syria.
