The Best Twitter Thread (Analysis) of the Syria/Kurd issue I've read...

Note.  The title says it all and the author of this Tweet Thread says it better than I ever could.

But I must add this.  Is Washington, the Congress and the Dept Of Defense caught up in Normalcy Bias?  What do I mean?  I hear constant whining, crying and gnashing of teeth about the pullout.

Did anyone think that a withdrawal would be anything BUT nasty and problematic?

After almost 20 years stuck in a quagmire with seemingly NO SOLUTION to the crisis/drama the answer from most of the so called smartest people in foreign/military policy is just to do more of the same?

The word for that (if you're expecting change) is INSANITY!

So we have no solutions, no plans, no epiphany on solving this issue but they decry a withdrawal?  If that ain't Normalcy Bias then I don't know what is.

Back on task.  Read the Tweet and follow the link so you can read the whole thing.

Then comeback and IF you disagree then give me your solution besides more of the same.  No one polls on the question but my sense is that the American people are sick and tired of the Middle East.
