In the wake of Donald Trump's move to take the US out of the Hillary Clinton's Syrian civil war, the country is beginning to return to normal (archived). The Kurds in a move observer in the US may find puzzling, have swiftly pivoted towards trying to ingratiate themselves to the Assad regime now that the US soldiers they had been using as human shields are leaving. The Kurds readiness to turns towards Assad suggests they'd been keeping more friendly with the regime than the USG was willing to believe, and that the Kurds didn't have all that much faith in USG delivering them an independent Kurdish state.
Now the Kurds find themselves with the Turks to the north, who are especially motivated to do to the Kurds what Turks normally do to Kurds in order to prevent USG armed and trained Kurdish militants from causing them problems. Thusly it is appearing that after the US intervention, lasting changes are likely to be limited to little more than an augmentation of the distrust and resentment held by all parties involved towards the USG.
