Trump issued a statement threatening sanctions against Turkey after saying that 'Anyone who wants to assist Syria in protecting the Kurds is good with me.' Trump may not have had practical choices other than a withdrawal or the sort of long-term military heel-digging that he has publicly railed again.

Donald Trump suggested Monday that Syria's formerly US-allied Kurds could look to 19th century French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte for protection after the US president ordered the departure of nearly 1,000 US troops from the country.
