If the Trump administration pulls out of the nuclear deal that the Obama government worked on with Iran this would lead to more catastrophe in a region of uncertainty.
While the U.S. reaffirmed their support for the established bilateral process to find a common way forward on Manbij, and underlined the U.S’s commitment to support Turkey’s national security concerns, Turkey recalled that the U.S. should take concentrate steps to end YPG presence in Manbij.
Political stability in Turkey is a must in order for the country to continue its fight against terrorism and to face other geopolitical issues.
April 2018 strikes gave the message to Assad that the volume of strikes will increase if he uses chemical attacks once again. But the very same message tells Assad that he is quite secure if he satisfies with killing his own citizens with weapons other than chemical weapons.
A U.S. military intervention far from the realities of the geopolitics of the Syrian crisis would not have an effective result.

Following the success of Turkey’s military operation in Afrin, a complicated future waits for the PKK terrorist organization.
“Turkey’s “allies” that arm, train, and protect the PKK may keep the group safe in some zones for some time, but this was not enough to stop Turkey in Afrin and may not be enough in the next battleground.”
The easy takeover of Afrin was a result of strategic planning, but not of the PKK. Turkey planned and executed how the city would be captured with full control from day one.
