Americans Fighting Alongside Kurds in Syria

Kurdish groups battling ISIS say three Americans have joined their ranks as they battle ISIS in Syria. CNN’s Brooke Baldwin spoke with Sophie Cousins, a reporter who helped to bring the story of a 28-year-old man from Wisconsin, now identified as Jordan Matson.

    i guess it is alright. if you go to one place and fight no crime. if you go somewhere else and fight it is O.K. i am sure his person will not face jail time for going to fight, but those that go and fight with ISIS will go to jail for 15 years are more. i hope this is not just AMERICAS way of saying what is just in GOD'S LAW. Has it ever been noted why groups like ISIS hates America so much? Could it be our morality, or maybe that the same is different. that is seems that is is only is as we say it is. Seldom is it the same.

    Why there is no supporting of Kurdish people against ISIS in the Kobani?!
    Why USA do not use Apache helicopters against ISIS to support the Kurdish in the Kobani?!
    What happened to all those claims and promises that we destroy ISIS?

    The problem is the naivete of the US government – it is still to this very day trying to starve the Kurds of money and weapons in order to force them back under the control of Baghdad in order to appease the Ayatollah who controls Baghdad's Shiite government.

    Hurting your only reliable ally to appease a dictator is a fool's game – just ask the Czechs, Poles, and Brits. Chamberlain and Kerry: a pair of twos in a high stakes poker game between good and evil.

    That ISIS Fighter the FBI is trying to identify doesn't sound American. He sounds like Tommy Chong, who is from Edmonton Alberta Canada.

    I believe in the long run this is a good thing I believe the Kurds deserve their own state. Hopefully we can cover a lot of ground .
