It looks like the critics were wrong once again.
The Syria withdrawal was supposed to be Trump’s Vietnam, his ISIS nightmare, a genocidal bloodbath.
But then a peace deal was announced on Tuesday.
President Trump cheered the news on Wednesday morning after a peace deal was announced.
Big success on the Turkey/Syria Border. Safe Zone created! Ceasefire has held and combat missions have ended. Kurds are safe and have worked very nicely with us. Captured ISIS prisoners secured. I will be making a statement at 11:00 A.M. from the White House. Thank you!

Almasdar News reported:
Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan reached an agreement on Tuesday to hold joint patrols along the Syrian-Turkish border region.
These patrols, which will focus on the region between Jarabulus and Al-Malikiyah, will allow the Turkish military to enter as far as 10-kilometers-deep into the proposed demilitarized zone along this border area.
At the same time, the 10-km-deep demilitarized zone will also allow for the Syrian border guards and Russian military police to conduct their own patrols within this vast region that stretches from Aleppo to Al-Hasakah.
