those betrayed by Trump should be given the option of emigrating to the USA.

yes indeed.
hence the multicultural society Europe is now enjoying.
a) taking responsibility for indigenous soldiers who fought the Colonial Powers' war.
b) taking responsibility for Colonial past.
c) is more difficult,
the current migration to Europe and other countries, one could argue as being provoked by militants who left the migrants no other choice but: Leave or Die.
Hence, and as I believe nobody ever becomes a refugee of his own volition, it is great that so many people are finding a new home and, in my opinion, they should return the favor by within reason adapting to the society that is their now home country.
The hosts are not guilty that they became refugees, and apparently the host country has done some things better than the country they fled, otherwise they would not have left.
Learn from each other and live in peace !

Trump’s Syria pullout that isn’t

President Donald Trump’s decision to send troops to protect oil fields in Syria means the U.S. may have as many troops in the country — or potentially more — as when he took office, undermining his repeated pledge to end a “forever war” in the Middle East.

Commanders are now moving additional forces and armored vehicles into Syria’s war-torn, oil-rich Deir ez-Zor province. Some are being sent to reoccupy bases they abandoned just last week, after Trump abruptly ordered them to pull out from the area.

Confusion reigns over US plan to 'secure the oil' in Syria as commanders await orders
Nearly three weeks after President Donald Trump ordered troops out of northern Syria, publicly declaring he was taking "control" of the oil and sending troops and armored carriers to protect it from ISIS, US commanders lack clarity on the most basic aspects of their mission, including how and when troops can fire their weapons and what, exactly, that mission is.
The lack of precise orders means troops are on the ground while critical details are still being worked out -- exactly where they will go, when and how they will stay on small bases in the area, and when they go on patrol.
Perhaps most crucially, there is no clarity about exactly who they are operating against in the oilfields.

It should be simple. Get out of this regional regime change war. I'm disappointed with anything short of that.

Russia, Assad and ISIL agree with you. 

Using your exact same logic, the US will have to send troops to every regional war on the planet. I object to that. We should have never been in Syria to begin with. Trump should have gotten us out of there completely on day one.

No. It's just that the US made allies there and now it's. dropping them. And it could even be OK to drop them if it was done in a decent fashion. This is twice now that Trump has made such a decision on the spur-of-the-moment for Syria. He could at least have had the decency to give the Kurds some advance warning.
