Sec Def Mattis is resigning.

Mattis makes some very cogent points about the withdrawal from Syria but he is steeped in 70 years of post WW2 tradition that makes it impossible for him to see the essential truth. The US alignment with the Kurds puts the US in direct opposition against Turkey which is allegedly a US ally because Turkey belongs to NATO. Turkey has its own agenda which is hostile to the US. The alliance with Turkey made sense only in context of the Cold War, but the Cold War is over. The USSR is no more. Russia is not the Soviet Union.

US out of NATO!
