    All good apasrt from the SAA deaths. Now, once Al-Safa is completely cleared, please get rid of that big black pacman blob, containing the vermin over in Al-Sukhana, as it irritates me immensely. It does surprise me that they haven’t starved yet.

    Hmm I don’t like this. 50% of Syria is not under government control. Most of the populated area is under control but still large areas not. Especially northeast part under US control, which is the closest to Iran and Caspian region.

    Is the YPG/SDF really in control of the areas they’re supposed to be, I’m not so sure. The Arab militias are giving them a hard time, Isis is bombing and assassinating them whenever and wherever they can, and the Turks are not only hitting the Kurds in retaliation for unprovoked attacks against them, they’re making pre-emptive strikes against them as well.
    On top of that Assad’s just opened a government processing centre in Al-Hasakah to issue birth and death certificates and other necessary government documents for the local population in Ar-Raqqah, Al-Hasakah and northern Die ez-Zor, making their lives a lot easier and reaffirming their Status as Sovereign Syrian citizens under Assad’s democratically elected government. The US wouldn’t have allowed that to happen 6 months ago, but they are now, something’s changed politically for this to happen. The Kurds are being forced to return to Assad by EVERYONE, absolutely NO-ONE’S doing anything to prevent it so there can only be one reason for it, it’s because it actually suites some of the biggest players involved in Syria now.
    And to anybody out there that thinks that the US is capitulating to Erdogan in any way at all over the Kurds think again, the US is currently destroying Turkey’s economy with nearly as many economic and political sanctions against them as they have against Russia, does anybody really think Trump’s worried about anything Erdogan threatens to do. He’s doing exactly what he thinks he needs to do regardless of what Erdogan says or does, and from what I’ve seen over the last 5 or 6 months, Trump really doesn’t seem to want the Kurds any longer, but he also doesn’t want them under Erdogan’s rule either, going by all the shiny new equipment, weapons and vehicles they’ve just received from Trump. But he does seem to be doing everything else he can to push them back towards Assad, taking all the shiny new toys Trump just gave them with them when they do.
