Some conservative papers say Trump is wrong, Mattis is right on Syria

There was some anger on a Facebook friend’s page over my dismissive comment that Trump, after a phone call from Erdogan, think that Turkey will take care of policing Assad and ISIS by itself. The Kurds would be in danger.

Both Rand Paul and father Ron echoed that idea on CNN with Smerconish.

I had thought that the conservative Washington Times would actually accept Trump’s move on this one, and even view Mattis as elitist in his resignation.

No, instead TWT is quite reasonable in pointing out the dangers for the United States with Trump’s impetuous decision, in an op-ed Monday by Gary Anderson. And TWT has several followup articles, including the Byzantine situation with the Kurds.
