Turkey's president announced the start of an invasion as Kurdish forces moved to defend Syria's northeastern border. The Kurds had been essential allies in the U.S. fight against ISIS, but President Trump had announced that he'd be abandoning them, breaking an American promise and pulling out of the region to allow Turkey to attack. CBS News foreign correspondent Holly Williams joined CBSN to discuss.

It's nonsense. It's just propaganda of a corrupt neocon/neoliberal warmongering lobby here. They want to keep our troops in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other more than 200 places forever wasting taxpayers' dollars and growing our astronomical unsustainable debt.

Makes sense for turkey to do this. They are holding over 4 million Syrian refugees. They have been very generous and warm hearted to that. It’s time to give the 4 million refugees a home

Here's an idea: why don't we get everyone around the table and tell them that they can do ALL of their fighting in Syria over in the USA. Let's get everyone who has joined a fight, whatever side they are on, to go to America and continue their fighting there. I think South Carolina would be a suitable place for this. What do you all think?

There is already a joint control of both SAF and SDF in remnants of Afrin. If Turkey invades the SDF will make an alliance with the SAF (Syrian Arab Force.)
