End U.S. Support for Turkey’s Invasion of Syria

We watch in dismay and anger as Turkey invades northeastern
Syria in an attack on the Kurds and the Rojava communities there. This invasion would not be happening without U.S. support.
Following are some articles to help understand what’s happening.
BFP does not officially endorse these articles but the information may not be found elsewhere, and the perspectives are worth considering.
If you’re not familiar with Rojava, see the
Call to Defend Rojava: An Open Letter published April 23, 2018.
Signatories include Noam Chomsky and others.
