Kata’ib Hezbollah is ready to protect Syrian Kurds in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) after the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from the country, a spokesman of the Iraqi group said during an interview with the al-Mayadeen TV on December 22.
The spokesman added that the U.S. withdrawal was expected and revealed that Kata’ib’ Hezbollah has “continuous and intensive communications” with Kurdish commanders in northeastern Syria. <snip>
According to al-Husseini, the U.S. is planning to hand over its role in Syria to Saudi Arabia and the UAE [emphasis added]. Both countries are already funding the US-led coalition operations against ISIS.

I am not sure what exactly is going on here.

There seems to be a flaw or two in the grand plan, Donald.
If I were a Kurd I would not feel too safe now. “Thanks Kurds for all your efforts fighting ISIS on the ground. Surely you did not think we were not going to leave you high and dry after ISIS was defeated. You have not looked at our history very closely, have you?”

National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not solved with more nationalism.

The Kurds are not stupid. They have lived in this land and heard these lies for decades. Promises over there last just as long as it serves the interest of the promise maker. No more. Perhaps these groups are saying this to give Trump a little political cover for withdrawing our troops. Perhaps they actually mean it. We won’t know until after we are gone.
