Why all the fuss regarding President Trump's choices regarding "protection" of the Kurds? I do NOT like what Trump chose to do but often?
his actions result in improvements for all involved. Should we wait to see the results? Where is that mutual protection portion of any Treaty guaranteeing unity between the USA and the Kurds?
Considering the Kurds to be allies is not accurate. They hated ISIS as much as we do and were willing to work with the USA to help defeat them. President Trump considers that agreement to be over, but that may not be an accurate assessment of the status of that conflict.

I am all for getting us out of the Mideast. However, it would have been a great idea to negotiate that cease fire *before* we started pulling people out.

By abandoning the Kurds, many civilians have died and ISIS terrorists have been freed.

Kurds are our only friends in the middle east and had the only non-Islamic democracy in the Muslim world. They were so happy we removed Saddam they named streets in their cities "George Bush Str" and "Richard Cheney Ave." Yes, this is shameful and will be remembered as a cowardly act for generations.

This is a common sense issue. When allies like the Kurds help you fight a dangerous enemy, you don't suddenly abandon them to their long-term enemy for no good reason.
Trump has offered no rational reason for his abrupt action. How can other allies trust the US again after this disgraceful abandonment? Trump is endangering our national security.
This move makes Russia happy. As one Republican put it, this is a "shameful disaster."

Well....not for the Kurds.
I'm with you. McCain pushed this crap in the first place but we really were pushing something that never would work. I get guys like Graham having an issue with it because they always pushed for it. I don't get the reaction from the left other than they hate Trump. They really ought to like this one.

Yes, abandoning an ally will no doubt have nothing but good effects for us down the road.
