Yeah, fucking brutal, and an unsurprising stab in the back from the yank state. They used em to defeat ISIS, now they leave em to die.
It's because northern syria is revolutionary. I'm no expert on em but I know the dominant ideology is socialist / libertarian, with feminism at its heart. I've seen the female fighting units who're out there killing fascists. I know women have more rights there than anywhere else in the middle east. And that is in conflict with western capitalist interests. So they'll let Erdogan kill this democratic experiment like europe including britain did in revolutionary spain in 1936.
They did the same when the financed and armed conservative islam (Bin Laden) to fight the soviets, because while brutal the soviets believed in nationalisation and educated women in schools. So they'd rather have fascistic interpretations of islam because they're open to western capitalist interests than these radical left wing areas that spring up. It's a crock of shit.
