US & Turkey begin joint patrols/safe havens in Syria?

I am very unsure of this policy.  As a matter of fact the only thing for certain is that we're gonna have US troops caught in the middle of hostile factions, potentially hostile factions, factions that can be best listed as frenemies...

Think about it.

US troops will be between Islamic Radicals who supposedly want to overthrow Assad but will kill an American just for shits and giggles, Hezbollah that's roaming the countryside, HAMAS that's roaming the countryside, Turkey that's acting like a crackhead--pivoting from Russia--back to us--to Iran--etc.., Iran that's acting like a meth head doing the same, Syria is a definite enemy (and for good reason from their point of view), Iran is obviously hostile and finally Russia is about as good as it gets for a rational actor in that neighborhood and they have their own agenda.

I don't know why but the modern day State Dept and Dept Of Defense love these weird entanglements that can't lead to clear cut victories...just fights for the sake of fighting.
