BIDEN TO KURDS: GO HOME. US-backed Kurds pulling back in north Syria as Turkey continues anti-ISIS operation.

A day after Turkish tanks crossed the border into northern Syria, a US-backed largely Kurdish army has moved east of the Euphrates River on Thursday, according to a U.S. military spokesman.

Turkey and U.S. Vice President Joe Biden had called on the Kurds to leave Arab lands in Syria and return east of the Euphrates to traditional Kurdish territory.

Biden threatened to cut off supplies to the Kurds if they didn’t fall back.

The Kurds really don’t want to give Turkish President Recep Erdogan any excuses.
