US Struggles With Fighting Between Turkey, Syrian Kurds, Two Key Allies

• https://news.antiwar.com, Jason Ditz

US allies have often clashed in the course of the Syrian War, but this is shaping up to be a long military campaign by Turkey, which has been looking to push against the Kurds for quite some time.

The US is so far just calling for "restraint," but their involvement in the fight could come quite quickly, as Turkish officials have repeatedly said after Afrin, they'll be attacking the YPG-held city of Manbij, a city that has US troops embedded within.

The US initially sent troops to Manbij to try to deter a Turkish invasion,betting they wouldn't want to risk causing casualties to a fellow NATO member. That the fight is already ongoing now may change that calculation.
