ISIS CAPTURED: Three British women fighting for terror group seized

Pompeo's visit began as U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton was set to depart Turkey without meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan - an apparent snub over disagreements about the Kurdish fighters in Syria. This condition seemed to preclude a complete withdrawal in the foreseeable future. I saw an early version of it. In Turkey's case, it appears to have emboldened Mr Erdoğan, who was reported to have asked the USA to hand over its 22 military bases in Syria or dismantle them. But it was most notable for the determined attacks on the previous USA administration.

Hoping somehow to work around this difficulty, Bolton traveled to Turkey this week for talks. Bolton is believed to have left Turkey without meeting the president due to their dispute over the Kurds. Instead of listening to that, what the national security bureaucracy is doing is putting together a plan that depends on a forever U.S. presence.

The program has identified more than 70 adults - mostly US citizens or legal residents - who traveled from the United States to Iraq or Syria to join jihadi groups since 2011, Stars and Stripes reported. We urge every country to take meaningful action to crush terrorism and denounce its ideological roots. Want to guess which way our Kurdish allies are betting?

Iraqi analyst Hani Ashour, who teaches political science at Baghdad University, told Sky News Arabia that the "Iraqi parliament was due to debate US troop levels in Iraq Thursday, following protests by some political parties over fears the USA was moving troops it was withdrawing from Syria to Iraq".

The group announced over the weekend they had captured two purported Americans, including a Texan who had once applied to teach English to ISIS students in Mosul. In contrast to other United States allies, Turkey can point to major sacrifices it has made in the struggle against Daesh in Syria, which Erdogan did when referencing the bloody Al Bab campaign of 2016/2017 in his New York Times article.

Many Kurds are concerned that a USA pullout will make them vulnerable to assaults from Turkey and the remaining members of ISIS still in the region. "We believe the sooner they leave Syria the better for the people of this country", he told reporters on the sidelines of the Raisina Dialogue, a multilateral conference held annually in New Delhi.

The U.S. and Turkey are allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Erdogan is preparing for important local elections in two months. Humiliating the American national security adviser helps him too.

Buckingham Palace said that "patronages generally reflect the interests of the member of the Royal Family involved". Meghan, who was an actress before her marriage to Prince Harry , will work with the National Theatre.

The U.S. can reasonably regard Turkey as among the least malignant potential players in Syria.

Fighting continues however, with Syrian Observatory for Human Rights saying IS suicide attackers had hit the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces in eastern Syria late on Sunday, killing 23 of its fighters.

Couple that with Trump's desire to sell arms to Turkey and one can understand the president's desire to accommodate Erdogan.

"But so much has changed during the past seven years, and today we are talking about an extensive Russian military presence in Syria, an obvious Iranian presence, and a possible Turkish military presence as well".

I hit the post, what, six times this year, and I hit it twice on that one", he said. And his status becomes one of their biggest offseason question marks.

Aside from the American teen, the others were identified as Lucas Glass, 31, from Germany; Bimuraev Begjan, 30, from Russia; Askar Zarmanbetov, 27, from Ukraine; Sattibek Oshibaev, 30, from Kazakhstan; Mohammad Dawlat, 22, from Tajikistan; Adil Rahimov, 58, from Uzbekistan; and Farhad Qaderov, 28, also from Uzbekistan.

We'll see how Trump weighs these competing values and considerations.
