Should the Kurds be left at this trying time?

Reactions has followed the command of the US President Donald Trump of withdrawing US Troops in Syria. His main critics Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican, says Donald Trump is enabling future Radical Islamic Jihadist, also said "The ability to recruit partners to fight radical Islam in the future has been virtually destroyed.   
Mr. President: change course while you still can."

But Trump in a Tweet said, "The same people that got us into the Middle East Quicksand, 8 Trillion Dollars and many thousands of lives (and millions of lives when you count the other side), are now fighting to keep us there. Don’t listen to people that haven’t got a clue. They have proven to be inept!"

The people who got us into “Middle East Quicksand” was George W. Bush, who invaded Iraq on false accusations of WMDs. Trump even hired the architect of the WMD lie, John Bolton, as his National Security Advisor for a period of time until the revolving door kicked him in the butt.

This situation in Northern Syria with the Kurds is much different. We didn’t use significant ground forces to defeat ISIS in Northern Syria because the Kurds did most of the fighting on the ground. They sacrificed so much. America provided air support to aid in the bloody fight.

Now that the Kurds defeated ISIS, we’re letting Turkey use its advanced air force to bomb Kurdish positions when we have the power to maintain a no-fly zone and prevent Turkey from invading our allies and going outside its own borders. Turkey is violating international law.

If we let Turkey do this, there is a significant chance that ISIS can come back into power in Northern Syria and endanger not only the Middle East and Europe but the United States as well. We could have another 9/11 style attack if ISIS comes back with a vengeance.

Nobody is asking America to go in with thousands of troops for a bloody war with Turkey. But America has a solemn responsibility to protect the Kurds who fought for us against ISIS and who we need to keep ISIS in check. We must enforce a no-fly zone in Northern Syria like before, Eugene MD said on his Tweeter handle in response to Donald Trump tweet.

But, Should the Kurds be left at this trying time, is this not a backstab by the Trump administration, And will this acts not breed more Islamic Terrorist in the Middle east and affect Europe?
