This happened in the town of Al Rai, which Turkish backed FSA groups recently captured from ISIS during the Turkey backed offensive in northern Aleppo.

US special forces had to leave the town after some dispute broke out between some of the rebels. Video showed them leaving the town in a convoy of vehicles while rebel fighters shouted anti-American slogans at them.

All I can say to the US is 'told you so'
They had the perfect allies when they were on the same side as the Syrian Kurds, who wanted a secular liberal area in Northern Syria, who were the only effective and trustworthy ground force against ISIS. But oh no Uncle Sam knew better and decided to quit their support for their once Kurdish allies because Turkey was upset, (ah boo hoo). The US then changed their support for jihadist rebels like Al Nusra who are just like ISIS but under a different name.

The US even demanded the Kurds retreat back across the Euphrates or face military attacks from Turkey. As a result the Kurds were forced to give up Manbij to ISIS and retreat back to Kobani without any protective airstrikes.

Now like in Iraq and Libya they got it wrong and once again the Jihadists are winning, all while the Kurds face certain annihilation.

Manbij is falling back to ISIS. The Americans new Jihadist allies will help re-open the supply routes for ISIS that took nearly a year and hundreds of Kurdish lives to shut.
Once again told you so.....

Syria's only hope is Assad, Russia and Iran now the Kurds are out of the equation and the west once again is backing the wrong bloody side!

Have you considered a career in tabloid journalism? They have about the same respect for the truth as you.

I have a role in the team working on our college magazine and a lot of people like my articles and stories even the staff. But I have considered a journalism career and writing.
