10/08/19 - Rep. Curtis posted the following to Facebook: "I am a strong supporter of our brave military men and women, and I agree that we must find a path out of the conflict in Syria. However, withdrawing without a clear strategy or coordination with our allies will put our hard-fought gains in the region—particularly against ISIS—at serious risk. The Kurds have been some of our strongest allies in that fight and have served as a bulwark against the incursion of Russia, Iran, and the Assad regime. Abandoning them to the will of Turkey would send a devastating signal to partners around the world and be harmful not only to the Kurds but to American interests in the region. #utpol" View the Facebook post here.
