Update on Iraq's Government Formation
People in Raqqa prepare to celebrate Eid al-Adha
Syrians in Idlib brace for the war's final showdown
Well it's not like this is false. The regime is only interested in dialogue only so far as it allows it to take control quicker than actually fighting. The same goes for the Kurdish groups. The level of autonomy, and arguably secession, that these groups wish is not going to be tolerated by the regime no matter what anyone here thinks.
The problem they want an independence in all aspects but the name, including their own army. You know, the turks won't let the northern Syria in peace if it ocurres.
What the Turks want really doesn't matter as long as the Americans are there. Of course trump may decide to pull American forces out due to his Russian leanings, so to say that they will be there indefinitely would be a bit short sighted.
Anyways, yeah, the two sides have completely opposing goals. It doesn't help the fact the current regime has been responsible for some pretty disgusting actions towards Syria's Kurdish population over the decades. It isn't an unlikely possibility that the regime would go back to committing such actions if they've somehow been able to gain control of the Kurdish areas again. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the circlejerk over the possibility of reconciliation between the two sides is overplayed on this sub.
The SDF has a tendency to deny these things or have honestly passive-aggressive statements. They did the same in Afrin, and the SAA-SDF negotiations did happen there and did come significant ground, especially with Tel Rifaat. The SDF has to gain with these statements anyways even if they are contradictory to other things as they need to please the US in order to stall Manbij, and a similar position for the US to stall SDF-SAA reconciliation over Turkey's aggression but both are doing the otherwise with their administrators or statesmen meeting face to face to the sides they say for the most part they won't turn to. Every side in this war is trying to deny and navigate the contradictions of interest in this war to further their own to the limit, in failure or success.
