No Middle East conflict is as complex as the one raging in Syria.But there are actually numerous wars being fought in Syria. A third conflict involves northern Syria's Kurds, who joined with the U.S. to fight Daesh but whose efforts have stoked fear among Turkish leaders that the aspirations of Syria's Kurdish population could embolden the Kurds in Turkey.While Trump could have been forgiven for arguing that America's only interest in Syria was the defeat of Daesh, his recent decision to withdraw all U.S. forces which he justified with an erroneous declaration of victory is inexcusable.Trump's decision will embolden President Bashar Assad, whose rule has been catastrophic for Syria. U.S. policy in Syria, the policy that Trump campaigned against and has now officially abandoned, has long rested on two pillars: stability in Iraq and the defeat of Daesh.Contrary to Trump's claims, Daesh is neither defeated nor dead; absent viable institutions and stable political arrangements in Syria, the group is likely to return in some form.
