A Russian air protection zone to protect the Kurds

(B2) Are we on the eve of a tactical turning point in Syria? In any case, the latest contacts between Kurds and Americans suggest this.

« I need to know if you are capable of protecting my people » Kurdish General Mazloum Kobani Abdi, commander in chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), told Deputy Special Envoy of the Global Coalition against Daesh, William Roebuck, during a meeting on Thursday, according to an internal US document obtained by CNN. " If can't do it, I have to make a deal with Russia and the regime now and invite their planes to protect this area. ».

If this eventuality occurred, the Americans would, through their policy, contribute in some way to the Damascus regime and the Russians to regain control of part of Syria. Beautiful result.
