Overseas Network, Oct. 11 - Turkey launched a military operation code-named Fountain of Peace to northern Syria, which attracted worldwide attention. The Kurdish armed forces are considered to be allies of the United States in Syria, and the sudden withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria is accused of turning the green light on Turkeys military operations, which also raises doubts about U.S. relations with other U.S. allies.

The Yonhap news agency reported on October 11 that the U.S. approach raised a typical question of whether it would be a harbinger of Washingtons future dealings with other key allies, such as South Korea. Critics say that the withdrawal of the US military reminds people once again that the US is mainly based on cost-benefit calculations. The Kurds fought side by side with the U.S. Army to fight extremists, while the withdrawal of U.S. troops gave Turkey a green light for attacking Kurds.

Nam Chang-hee, a professor at Renhe University in South Korea, said, It is well known that Trumps alliance istransactional, which is different from the traditional assessment of the value of the alliance in the United States, which seems to be in line with hisU.S. firstpolicy. Given the unpredictable nature of Trumps actions, the message for South Korea is that the alliance must be maintained with greater care.

For the United States to abandon its allies practice, not only the Korean media, but also the Israeli media, a strong ally of the United States, expressed concern. The Jerusalem Post reported Wednesday that the United States has sent a disturbing message to its allies, not to rely on others, but on itself. A senior Kurdish commander also told CBS that he was stabbed in the back.

On 6 October, Trump agreed to withdraw from Syria after talking to Erdogan. Three days later, Turkish President Erdogan announced a military operation against the Kurdish WorkersParty in northeastern Syria. Trump later issued a statement saying, The United States does not approve of this attack, this action is a bad idea. But it is still criticized by both parties in the U.S. Congress.
