The U.S. military’s “reassurance and deterrence” mission in the Syrian city of Manbij is achieving its goal of preventing key American allies from battling one another, the Pentagon said Monday, but what’s already a tense situation could become more complicated with the arrival of Russian troops and continued advances by Turkish-backed rebels.
