BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition sent several military personnel, along with State Department officials to the northern Aleppo city of Manbij on Thursday.

The U.S. military personnel and State Department officials were pictured touring the city with their counterparts from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

According to pro-SDF activists, this visit from the U.S. Marines and State Department is supposed to be a direct message to Turkey that they will not abandon  the city.

If US words and promises were a bridge I would not go over. The crux in the press releases are the words AT THAT TIME.

p.s. US State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said Turkey and the US had not reached an agreement.
During a press briefing on Tuesday 20.03.2018, Nauert was asked about Turkish presidential spokesperson İbrahim Kalın’s claims of a deal between the US and Turkey over Manbij. “Well that’s funny because no agreement has been reached,” she said, adding that the department had nothing to announce at that time in response to the Turkish statement.

Turkey is a big and stable country and yet the US prefers Kurds. This is proof that the US Empire is slipping more and more into craziness.
