Well, I think this is being taken seriously now. It was last visited before Turkey invaded Afrin (Efrin), with the blessing of Russia and Assad.

That disaster has changed the relation between Turkey and the other players. And the relation between Iran and Russia has changed.

I look for some alignment to form around those changes. It is discussed, but not publicly.

And consider the damage that Erdogan has done both within and outside of Turkey. It is possible the he will show poorly in the upcoming election on the 24th.

This may be a bridge through which a democratic Syria could emerge.

I know, Erdogan will try to steal the election. But is the damage so bad it won't work?

Is the relationship between Turkey and the US forever destroyed? It is yet unclear.

Who are these people? Who finances them? Do they have any base of support within Syria? If the USA pays their Bill’s, the American people need to have these questions answered.

Much more detail at the link.

The Syrian Democratic Council (Arabic: مجلس سوريا الديمقراطيةMSD, Classical Syriac: ܡܘܬܒܐ ܕܣܘܪܝܐ ܕܝܡܩܪܛܝܬܐ‎, translit. Mawtbo d'Suriya Demoqraṭoyto, Kurdish: Meclîsa Sûriya Demokratîk‎) is the political wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces in the de facto autonomous Democratic Federation of Northern Syria. Both organisations work towards the implementation of a secular, democratic and federalist system for all of Syria.

Elham Ahmed is well know internationally in this capacity. Syrian leaders know her. Both the SDF (prior to SDF the YPG/YPJ) have tried to avoid direct conflict with the SAA. The times that has not worked, the Iranian elements affiliated with Assad have caused the conflict.
