US, Turkish Forces Face Off As Trump Reneges on Syria Withdraw Ep. 65

Earlier this week, Trump made comments about withdrawing US forces from Syria. Shortly after, this comment was reneged and effectively stamped out by the establishment. Meanwhile, US coalition forces continue to occupy the Syrian-Kurdish enclave of Manbij with Kurdish YPG forces in defiance of the invading Turks.  To help me dissect these unfolding events, I am joined once again by Kyle Anzalone, host of the Foreign Policy Focus Podcast & the resident foreign policy expert at the Libertarian Union.
