Re-arranging the Middle East

The Retreat

Erdogan pauses from his trumpeting call

to the world to investigate

Mohammed Bs for

 dismembering  Khashoggi.

Trump recalls his troops from Syria.

Mattis quits.

Turkey moves troops towards Syria.

The Kurds feel abandoned.

Russia starts military maneuvers.

Syria is relieved of foreign mercenaries

supplied and funded by the United States.

Assad prepares to repatriate Syrians.

And pay them for coming back.

Wait till Trump changes his mind!
