Its main problem is how to survive under the Turkish and American-green lighted attack. There is also the savage Assad regime on the other side. Rojava’s survival up to this stage is a miracle, and the priority for its continuation will be in the future. The Rojava experience has proven that international solidarity is possible. "

I do not think Biden will be as barbaric as Trump, and he will not tell Turkey to go, occupy and kill the Kurds, but they will do nothing else either.

As for his vision of Trump’s rule, he said: “The Trump administration has been criticized for lacking a coherent policy ... on the contrary, it is consistent and based on basic imperial principles.

On the other hand, popular movements can push some issues to the political arena. "
