Demonstrator dies as Turkey protests continue over Gezi Park A 22-year-old protester in the southern province of Hatay has died in continuing protests over the Gezi Park. Ahmet Atakan died after being struck in the head by a tear gas canister fired by police, Dogan news agency reported. He took part in a march to show solidarity with students and locals in Ankara resisting against the construction of a road through Middle Eastern Technical University. The event was also staged to commemorate Abdullah Comert, another local of Antakya’s flashpoint neighborhood of Armutlu, who was killed by police in early June at the beginning of the Gezi protests. http://rt.com/news/line/2013-09-10/#50773

Damascus asks UNSC to prosecute Turkey for aiding terrorists in Syria 2013-12-30 Damascus has officially asked the UN Security Council (UNSC) to prosecute Turkey and other countries which help terrorists infiltrate Syria. The letter, addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon by Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the UN HQ, Bashar Jaafari, called the actions “a flagrant violation,” adding that Turkish authorities have systematically contributed to the “smuggling” of terrorists and weapons. Terrorists “do not stop attacking hospitals, schools , Muslim and Christian shrines , diplomats and even children,” Jaafari said. “They were trained on the border with Syria , after which the Turkish authorities helped them penetrate the neighboring country.”

To summarize: A NATO-member planned a false flag war

Turkey did nothing when Israel attacked and killed turkish soldiers, but they want to send a few people to syria in order to shoot rockets at abandoned areas of turkey, because they need a reason to attack Syria. Akp is a very dirty regime, it has always been deceitful, perfidious, cowardly, just like a snake in the grass; but it is the first time that all people can see it with their own eyes and hear with their own ears. For this reason they trie to ban twitter, youtube facebook. And if people vote for akp again, it means that they are real sheeps!

- Tayyip Erdogan acts as a dictator. Kurds are victims of Turkey. - Benjamin Netanyahu acts as a dictator. Palestinians are victims of Israel. - twins?

Erdogan is similar to Netanyahu. Turkey looks at kurds as Israel looks at palestinians. .. By the way, Abraham (according to the Bible) came from an mountainous area near today's Turkey long before his decendents went to today's Palestine&Israel and killed the native people who lived there in a country which until that was called Canaan.

Battle for Kobane: Turkey fires tear gas at activists trying to enter Syria (VIDEO) http://rt.com/news/193188-syria-turkey-border-kobane/

This shows how much benefit the U.S. can expect from the turkish membership. The U.S. should not wait for Turkey to act. Instead the U.S. should act by itself. Perhaps all the kurds should be evacuated and then the empty city heavily being bombed so the kurd maybe can return later. Better a destroyed city than an ISIS city.

This shows how much benefit the U.S. can expect from the turkish NATO membership. The U.S. should not wait for Turkey to act but instead act themselves quickly.

Oh, this 'conflict', this squabble; it is just a smokescreen, so we do not see what the USA and the turks are up to: They're still after al Assad and, when he's gone, they'll go for Iran. They will not annihilate the IS(IS) before the terrorists have created the chaos they want. The USA has always used gangsters to do the dirty work for them. When the slaughtering is over, they crush the outlaws, and thus make it look, as if they are the good guys. A smart strategy, which has fooled us for centuries.

The Tomb of Suleyman Shah has been considered sovereign Turkish territory since the 1921 Treaty of Ankara signed between Turkey and France,& Not Syria's whom Sovereignty belongs. Now you see how White Colonialist think-They're exceptional & they make up the rules based on their understanding of their superiority complex - sheer arrogance. Erdogan cares not for a gentle or diplomatic posture,he's arrogant rude & like Washington often threatening others. Syria hv honoured Tomb of Suelyman for more than a century,its cultural its part of Syria's heritage yet NOTO's OleTool that boisterous Erdogan keep running his mouth like an ISIL/IS Evangelist.

ISIS is driven by racism, not religion. Sunni and shia correspond to two different groups of human languages. The former includes arabic and hebrew, the latter includes persian language (farsi), kurdish language, hindi, russian and english.

The U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia has sabotaged all democratically elected muslim governments, in Gaza, Egypt...

The U.S. is an allied of Turkey, and Turkey is afraid of the potential of the more civilized kurdish culture and wants to keep it down.

The U.S. should get rid of its partnership with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel. These countries makes that the U.S. is taking the wrong side in conflicts and they initiate wars.

Turkey has problem with Kurds for a very long time now. Turks will ally with Lusofer even to destroy Kurdish power. I'm not surprised that Turks are flip flopping since they are never allied with anybody but themselves.

The turks are not arabs. They are related to mongols.

What a 'crazy, mad, world' we live in!. Unbelievable to consider, there are so many 'wars' going on within the SAME REGION!!. I think Turkey is 'way of line' bombing the Kurds, considering these are the SAME FIGHTERS, who are genuinely tring to defeat ISIS. For crying out loud!!. give the Kurds a break. Turkey is supposed to be part of the so called EU!. They should be kicked out of the EU/NATO. All these dirty 'proxy wars' in name of democracy!.

Turkiets roll i kampen mot ISIS http://sverigesradio.se/sida/gruppsida.aspx?programid=3304&grupp=6240&artikel=5991138 lyssna på Katja_Magnusson och Agneta_Ramberg om Turkiet, PKK och ISIS Katja Magnusson och Agneta Ramberg om Turkiet, PKK och ISIS (8:28 min) Igår kom uppgifter om att turkiskt stridsflyg ska ha bombat mål i Turkiet som tillhör den kurdiska organisationen PKK. Attacken kommer i ett läge där Turkiet har stor press på sig att agera mer kraftfullt mot terrorgruppen ISIS, som håller på att inta den syriska staden Kobane, i huvudsak bebodd av kurder. Är Turkiet på väg mot ett tvåfrontskrig, när spänningarna nu växer också i de sydöstra delarna av landet? Hör Sveriges Radios korrespondent Katja Magnusson direkt från Diyarbakir i sydöstra Turkiet och Agneta Ramberg, Ekots utrikeskommentator.

Foto: TT. Foto: TT. De USA-ledda flygangreppen mot terrorrörelsen Isis i Syrien har ökat de senaste två dagarna. Samtidigt skapar turkiska bombningar av mål i sydöstra Turkiet, som tillhör den kurdiska gerillaorganisationen PKK, spänningar i regionen. Publicerat onsdag 15 oktober kl 07:45 Dela Totalt har 21 flygattacker genomförts mot Isis-styrkorna kring staden Kobane nära gränsen till Turkiet. USA:s president Obama uttryckte i går djup oro över situationen kring Kobane och även Anbar-provinsen i Irak, rapporterar Reuters. Isis framryckningar i den syriska staden Kobane har också fått konflikten mellan Turkiet och PKK att flamma upp igen, eftersom Turkiet vägrar att släppa in vapen till de kurdiska styrkorna i Kobane. Turkiet har genomfört flygattacker mot den av EU, USA och Turkiet terrorstämplade kurdiska gerillagruppen PKK. – Det är lite svårt att veta vart detta är på väg. Det är ett högt och farligt spel från båda sidor. Kurdiska politiker har sagt att om Kobane faller finns en stor fara också för fredsprocessen. Medan andra sidan säger att kurderna använder Kobane som en utpressningsmetod mot turkiska staten helt enkelt. Så de står väldigt långt från varandra i detta fall, frågan är väldigt explosiv, säger Ekots korrespondent Katja Magnusson, på plats i Diyarbakir i sydöstra Turkiet. I värsta fall kan detta innebära ett sammanbrott för den bräckliga fredsprocessen, och ett nytt krig, säger Ekots utrikespolitiska kommentator, Agneta Ramberg. – Vad det betyder är att Isis framfart i regionen i Syrien destabiliserar Turkiet också, eller riskerar att göra det. Risken är att i en region som redan står i brand kan vi nu få en brandhärd till i Turkiet. Kobanes öde har blivit en symbol för kurderna. Den USA-ledda koalitionen behöver rädda Kobane, säger hon.

We don't know how long time it takes until Turkey fulfills its promise, so in the meantime someone else should start to transport kurdish fighters into Syria and supply the kurds in Syria with heavy weapons, food and so on.

Turkey to allow Iraqi Kurds to join battle vs IS in Kobani http://rt.com/news/197532-turkey-kurds-isis-kobani/

It is about time. Maybe as ISIS did not do the job of erradicating the Kurds in Kobani they had no other choice. What ever, at least now they are letting them go to do a job they should have been let to do a long time ago. The other reason is I belive by Turkey continuing to stop this action their own Kerds would have risen up.

Turkey is the devil there. They have sponsored the creation of ISIS. Turkey is openly Islamist and they want everybody to submit to Islam and with it to them. They only allowed Kurds to defend Koban after huge pressure from US. They are still dreaming the destruction of everyone who wants independent Kurdistan. And that's why they allowed ISIS to advance to Koban, so they can kill more and more Kurds.

Who sent the nuclear bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Not Muslims!! Who killed more than 100 millions of Indians in North America? Not Muslims!! Who killed more than 50 million of Indians in south America? Not Muslims!! Who took about 180 millions of African people as slaves and 88% of them died and were thrown overboard into Atlantic ocean? Not Muslims!! No, NOT Muslims!! First of all, You will have to define terrorism properly. If a non-Muslim does something bad. It is crime. But if a Muslim commits the same. He is a Terrorist. So first remove this double standards.

Hammed Abdulghaffar is right. How can we be that blind about who are the real terrorists? And islam is internationalistic, not nationalistic.That's good. But one problem is IS and Boko Haram doing rape and genocide on civilians and prisoners of war. Another is Turkey's discrimination of kurds. A third is Saudi Arabia and Iran discriminating women. (Of cause, Israel is as bad in many of these areas.)

Turkey: Who are these ancient warriors guarding Erdogan? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxXXDIKrASs

Muslims in general must get rid of their weak spots: (1) their useless pride that makes them too easy to provoke and thus manipulate (2) their "enslavement" of women and the atrocities of ISIS and Boko Haram If they do get rid of these, Israel is doomed. Also: Turkey should stop discriminating against kurds.

Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders says Turks ‘will never join EU’ Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders has told Turks “you are not welcome here” in a video that takes aim at Ankara’s hopes of joining the EU, Reuters reported. The most popular right-wing politician in the Netherlands, who is anti-Islam, Wilders has surged in public opinion polls with his call for the closing of national borders in the face of the refugee crisis. In an English-language video posted online on Friday with Turkish subtitles, Wilders told Turks: “Your government is fooling you into believing that one day you will become a member of the EU. Well, forget it.” He went on to say, “You are no Europeans and you will never be. An Islamic state like Turkey does not belong to Europe.”

Turkey’s deployment in Iraq violates international law – Iraqi president: Dispatching several hundred Turkish troops in Iraq near the city of Mosul without the consent of Iraqi authorities is “a violation of international norms and law," the country’s president, Fouad Massoum, said in a statement, as reported by Reuters. The Iraq’s leader called for immediate withdrawal of the Turkish troops and asked Iraqi foreign ministry to take necessary steps “to preserve the country’s sovereignty and independence.” Earlier, Iraqi government has also demanded https://www.rt.com/news/324787-turkish-troops-deployed-iraq/ that Ankara withdraw its forces from the country’s territory and Iraq’s foreign ministry has called Turkey’s actions “a serious breach of Iraqi sovereignty.”

Turkey to have a ‘permanent base’ in Iraq: Turkey will have a permanent military base in the northern Iraqi region of Bashiqa near the city of Mosul as its military group training local forces in Iraq has been reinforced with additional personnel, Turkey's Hurriyet reports. According to Hurriyet, the deal concerning the establishment of the base was signed on November 4 between Iraqi Kurdistan President Massoud Barzani and then Turkish Foreign Minister Feridun Sinirlioglu during the latter’s visit to northern Iraq.

US quits asking more Turkish effort in fighting ISIS – Reuters: Washington has lifted its longstanding request for Ankara to step up action against terrorist group Islamic State after the downing of Russian bomber by a Turkish fighter jet, Reuters cited a US official as saying.

Earlier, US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter told the US Congress that most Turkish cross-border bombings targeted Kurdish fighters rather than jihadists.

Turkey may replace Russia as fuel supplier – Erdogan: While Russia is a major supplier of oil and gas for Turkey, Ankara may find another seller, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a televised speech.

Russia slapped economic sanctions against Turkey in retaliation, but continues to supply fuel according to existing contracts with Turkey.

Mystery over who bombed Turkish convoy allegedly carrying weapons to militants in Syria Published time: 26 Nov, 2015 12:44 https://www.rt.com/news/323538-turkey-convoy-syria-attack/

Turkish jets ‘haven’t hit ISIS targets’ in Syria since November 24 – source Turkish warplanes have taken part in air operations by US-led coalition forces, but have not bombed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) targets in Syria since November 24, when Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet, Reuters reported, citing a senior Turkish official. Last week, a US official said that the US had quietly put on hold a long-standing request for its NATO ally to play a more active role in the US-led air war to allow time for Turkey-Russian tensions to ease, according to the report.

Turkey hasn’t withdrawn troops from Iraq after Baghdad ultimatum – official: Turkey hasn’t withdrawn any troops from Iraq following an ultimatum from Baghdad, Reuters quoted a senior Turkish official as saying on Monday. Ankara is in discussions with Iraq’s Defense Ministry and could reduce the size of its forces, the official added. Turkey sent hundreds of soldiers to a camp in the Bashiqa region of northern Iraq on Thursday. The Iraqi government insisted the latest deployment had been made without informing or coordinating with Baghdad, and should be withdrawn.

‘Not honest’: Erdogan criticizes Iraqi plea to UNSC over Turkish invasion https://www.rt.com/news/325677-erdogan-iraq-unsc-not-honest/

"Not honest" is plain gibberish, desperately used in lack of valid arguments

Turkey now sets the standard for how Russia can act, even in retrospect.

Turkey is of zero value for NATO. - Don't expect Turkey to to obey another road than its own.

Turkey should be kicked out of NATO. ..The other NATO countries are very silent in their support of Turkey now.

Iraq should invite russian boots on the ground.

Iraq should quickly give the kurds a piece of own country. Otherwise the turks will take more and more of Iraq.

Iraq should invite russian boots on the ground.

Turkey is an aggressor.

Russian boots on the ground are needed in Iraq.(Invited by the kurds or the iraqi government)

The best answer Iraq can give Turkey is the give the kurds a Kurdistan. They deserve it.

It is sunni turkish aggression against shia iraqi government.

- And the U.S.-saudi supports all of sunni, including IS-IL with high tech IT:

Where are the "Turkey, right so, go ahead!" from other NATO countries in this matter?

Will be interesting to see who will veto the resolution.

Iraq did a smart move to take it to the U.N. Now U.S. has to show where it stands.

NATO should tell Turkey to leave Iraq or be expelled from the organization. Or NATO is to blame as well.

Somebody else except Tuurkey should help the kurds in Iraq so the kurds in Iraq can say to the turks to leave because the turks are not needed for training of kurdish troops there.

Turkey does not respect agreement to withdraw troops – Iraqi PM: Turkey did not respect its commitment to withdraw troops from northern Iraq, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Wednesday. Abadi said in a statement that the Turkish delegation promised to announce the withdrawal of Turkish troops upon returning to Ankara, “but the Turkish government has not respected the agreement and we request that the Turkish government announce immediately that it will withdraw from Iraqi territory.” The crisis erupted in early December when Turkish troops with armored vehicles entered northern Iraq and Turkish authorities refused to withdraw them, saying that the troops were there to train Sunni militia to fight Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) on the request of the Iraqi government. 2015-12-30

2017-09-09 11:35 GMT Turkey kills 99 Kurdish militants in latest operations - military: Turkish security forces have killed 99 Kurdish militants, including a high-ranking one, in operations in southeast Turkey over the last two weeks, the armed forces said on Saturday. Security forces targeted outposts and caves used by the militants for shelter and storage in the southeastern provinces of Sirnak and Hakkari, near the Iraqi border, the military said in a statement." Ninety-nine terrorists have been neutralised. One is in the so-called leading ranks," it said. The outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), considered a terrorist organisation by the United States, Turkey and the European Union, has waged a more than three-decade insurgency against the state. The PKK, which seeks autonomy for the largely Kurdish southeast, has bases in the mountains on both sides of the Turkey-Iraq border and is frequently targeted by Turkish security foces. The operations, which were carried out between Aug. 24 and Sept. 7, led to the seizure of 420 kg (925 lbs) of ammonium nitrate, used to make explosives, as well as bombs, guns and rifles, the military said.

Maybe the US is waiting for Iran or Syria to protect the kurds by attacking Turkey, so then the US will get a reason to help the NATO member Turkey by attacking Iran or Syria.

Turkey has to be stopped, otherwise Europe will be their next victim.

Have the turks fired backwards in order to trick the world that their military operation is justified? - The kurds in Syria posed to threat to Turkey militarily, but perhaps as a stronger culture ....

Only 1 question who attacked first it's was not the Kurds,it was Turkey. Turkey has been killing Kurds for many years..

I am sure Turkey was not on America's list of "seven countries in five years." A change of plans?

What really is NATO worth to maintain?; - Other than as an aggressor against Russia, and Turkey can never be steared onto "that train" when the situation otherwise is ready.

If Turkey attacks first, nato doesnt go to war for erdogan. And its pretty Obvious: erdogan was fine with ISIS on its border, letting fighters cross turkey's border and buying oil from them. But now erdogans ISIS buddies got exterminated by kurdish ground forces and all of the sudden Turkey doesnt want ''terrorists'' on its border. NATO should kick Turkey out!

If a NATO member starts a unfair war, that country should be attacked by the other NATO members. Otherwise NATO would be a club to give its members free hands to start unfair wars. .. Ouupps!!! - Maybe NATO is that kind of club !!

But if a NATO country STARTS a military conflict with another country and that other country or other countries responds aggressivly against that it would be rediculus if the other NATO countries would be obliged to support that NATO country that started the conflict.

Turkey undertook this adventure without permission or consultation of NATO...IMO, Turkey has lost its treaty obligations from the rest of NATO...If V Putin goes in and makes Constantople Christian again, NATO will sit back and watch...

Maybe he has become paranoid. "Gulan is after me." "Kurds i Syria are after me."

Erdogan is the Turkeys version of loudmouth Trump. He wants to create another Ottoman Empire by carving up Syria, it may end up fragmenting a weak Turkish failed state as 40% of the Kurds, Alevi Shia and Christian population does not want to be with Turkeys.

Doesn't turkeys have a rather aggressive appearence?

This zone resembles the izraeli zone and wall build on palestinian territory. Is Erdogan jewish? - Trump also want to build a wall. Is he too jewish?

Erdogan must admit to say that he will withdraw from north Syria not to say he started operation of Reyhanli / Efrien Syrian city . he has no right to plan a free zone of 30 KM .. this zone will be done by only Syrian state no excuse .. it is their country .. understand . he did not know that hundreds thousands of Syria resistance & world volunteers are ready to smash any aggressor there !!!

Only 1 question who attacked first it's was not the Kurds,it was Turkey. Turkey has been killing Kurds for many years..

It's very dangerous for the syrian regime to protect the syrian kurds militarily, but at least have the syrian regime used words to threten the turks to shoot down airplanes attacking the kurds on syrian teritory.

The blame on Trump about connection with Russia is a trick to scare him from develop friendly relations with Russia - as long as Russia refuses to not sabotage israeli interests.

He in effect has betrayed the Kurds and President Trump should order the American Troops there to return fire against Turkey interference or take our troops out of the region - because with no Kurd assistance our credibility is a BIG ZERO.

With such members in NATO as Turkey and US the conclusion is that Sweden for example is better off as long away as possible from cooperation with NATO with regard to what protection is to expect afterwards - judging after what the kurds get.

Mattis says Turkey warned Pentagon before attacking US-backed Kurds https://www.rt.com/usa/416591-turkey-warned-pentagon-attack-kurds/

It is an interesting question why Turkey is so afraid of having the kurds minding their own business in a particular area outside Turkey, with the prospect of lots of kurds emigrating from Turkey to that area together with getting rid of lots of conflicts.

The kurds need an own state because the way the turks handle the kurds so badly, and for instance don't want to let the kurd speak the kurdish language - probable because it would spread at the expence of the turkish language.

They wont stop them, but claim they talked about it to make it look like the US is tolerant. They are hiding their impotence. No one will do anything to stop it because no one wants a Kurdish state there, except the US.

The Roman Empire destroyed Carthage as US-Israel destroys countries such as Iraq, Libya, Syria ...

It is obvious why USA is the most hated nation on the planet for BETRAYING even own allies whenever it feels like doing this for its own selfish interests. Even Saddam and Gaddafi both were allies

USA, the worlds biggest debtor is also destroying itself in the process. Spent Trillions to fight own ally Saddam so Iran could own Iraq absolutely free after that. Also, It was defeated in almost every war it fought beyond own shores except with tiny Panama and Granada. This is why the USA has become an obsolete and impotent power already because it is ruled by old retds.

The kurds have the same religion as arabs, and the same ethnicity (lanuage, heritage etc) as iranians. Therefore they don't fit in so well in any of the conflicting super-groups.

Really just how many times can the kurds be screwedover by the US? The US history with the Kurds... The US Gave Saddam chemical weapons to use on Iran and the Kurds. The US then promised the Kurds their own state if they faught with them against Saddam. Then said oh no we didnt mean that. Then tell the Kurds help us overthrow Assad and we will give you your own state. Now again they will be ditched. Turkey invades and the US evacuates its troops to Lebanon leaving the kurds to fight alone in this area..

The kurds in Iraq helped Iran, and the kurds in Iran helped Iraq. Then Saddam poisoned kurds in Iraq because they helped the enemy of Iraq (that is Iran) in order get an own state - split from Iraq.

Trump probably prefeers US military leaders that are extreme when it comes to lowering military expences rather than lowering non-american casualties.

And Trumps campaign was funded by AIPAC the Saudis Israel Goldman Sachs Boeing the Mercer family and the big jewish money of Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn. Trumps owned by Israel the Saudis Boeing and Goldman Sachs hes serves that buisness. And Kushner owns 666 fifth avenue NY he and trumps serve you well.

How come that Turkey could afford having such a big army? Because like the US they spend little on healthcare and education all tax money goes to war machines.

US 'very concerned' about military op in Syria’s Afrin – Tillerson to Turkey & Russia https://www.rt.com/newsline/416583-tillerson-us-syria-turkey/

What exactly is it with gulenists that makes Erdogan think they are so dangerous for Turkey? - Are they jews? - Are they only dangerous for Erdogan personally, or what?v

US provoked this whole thing so that Turkey will ramp up and provoke Syrian authorities, in the hope that Syria will fight back on behalf of the Kurds. They have lost the war, so they want to start another. Their conerns will fall on deaf ears.

Actually, Deepstate, the US is not the "Cause" of another confrontation. The US is the TRUCKLING instrument. The "Cause" is Israel, which fact should not be allowed to hide among the murdered bodies of Syrians, of Iraqis, of Lebanese, of Palestinians, of Libyans, of Afghanis.

The US has only one plan to achieve its objective of removing Assad from power, their trained mercenaries and hired discontented Syrians as terrorists FAILED because the quick decisive intervention of Russia, the Kurds got used and let down once again, typical of the US Military. The US has hoped they could help the US divide Syria just as ISIS was trying to do to create a new ISLAMIC STATE BETWEEN SYRIA AND TURKEY that would BENEFIT Israel,a military win that would protect our interests there too.

The US does it all for Israel.

Absolutely. Fragmented Syria and Iraq mean less support for Hezbollah and ultimately the Palestinians. It is to ensure that Israel remains the only stable entity in the region and most militarily strong, all in order to ensure the further theft of Palestinian lands with a view towards the greater Israel project.

It is part of the US plan to destroy the Syrian state and remove Assad. Use the Kurds to fight ISIS then use them to partition Syria. What they did not count on was the Turkish reaction. But turkey itself was willing to go along with the US plans to remove Assad until they included creating a defacto Kurdish entity on its borders. The US will not relent until that entire region except Israel is in disarray.

US 'very concerned' about military op in Syria’s Afrin – Tillerson to Turkey & Russia https://www.rt.com/newsline/416583-tillerson-us-syria-turkey/

US, the discussing terrorist nation, who continues to destroy Syria and other countries by using ISIS and other paid mercenaries, can go and do it self. If there is a god, Americans will be subjected to the same genocidal, brutal, destruction treatment their government has brought to Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq,....and countless other innocent nations in South America and Africa.

US has now to proove to the kurds that Turkey didn't do the op. with US consent.

If there is something Americans love more than hamburgers and V8 engines, its war.

Turkey should stop discriminate and terrorize kurds, and let them speak their own language so will kurds not be so eager having their own state.

They provoked this whole thing so that Turkey will ramp up and provoke Syrian authorities, in the hope that Syria will fight back on behalf of the Kurds. They have lost the war, so they want to start another. Their conerns will fall on deaf ears.

The war powers act written after WWII does not allow grandfather cluases on commerse and realestate negotiations using a military. Israel is an illegal state driven by the countries that wrote and approved the legislation.

Israel is a country without officially claimed borders. Beware those countries around it !

Kind of like saying the car is parked on property that is not mine, so its mine now. Israel has the same problem.

This weak pathetic old man is the secretary of defense who said before two days "Work with our diplomats or deal with US military"?

Yes, another US ally to be sacrified and abandoned, but not funny.

that's trolling - an attempt to use nonsense in order to distract from truth

Just remember. Whenever the US builds a new military base on foreign soil, it is unofficially another US State. That country is now under the control of the US.

So it is Matt is who gave Turkey the right to slaughter the Kurds.

Seems "mad dog" has become Erdogan's [female dog].

I do not know much about kurds but I truly believe that the kurds deserve their own country.

The FSA (Free Syrian Army) is Turkey's proxy in Syria's North West. The ISIL jihadis that were given a free pass by the USA in Mosul and Raqqa were folded into the SDF forces. If there are any left, they'll be fighting with the Kurds against Turkey and both entities will be funded and supplied by the USA.

The entire situation in the Middle East is a complete and utter joke. Alliances are made and broken almost weekly.. nobody knows whose with whom anymore. All we know is the US are backstabbers to their Kurdish allies. This is why ISIS and Al-Quada were created.. the US has angered the Arabs so much that they formed a resistance against them.

australian government "news" outlets are running hot. Evil turkey invaded and killed those poor innocent american terrorists. Australia must join america by instantly tripling its defence spending to 5% of GDP. as our health, school and public tramsport crumbles rapidly. last night we had evil putin evil evil evil and look how he has orchestrated all these attacks on poor america. its really quite sickening how australia is flooded with the american bull sh*te 24x7. we are really being ramped up by these lunatics

YPG is the cannon fodder of the US imperialist, either they will be slaughter by the master itself or in this case by the lackey (Erdogan)

Here is typical US arrogance at display. Erdogan couldnt care less about what US says or does, no matter how US tries to spin it, losing Turkey means losing Middle East. And US lost Turkey

Erdogan has been a a good servent for the Us so far but if he decides to disobey the master he would be toppled over night by his own generals. History has shown the US never sacrifices his own interests for its lackeys.

Perhaps UN could guarantee the kurds the status of statehood even if they don't control any separate land militarily. Same for te palestinians and rohingas etc.

There is only one reason they invaded Syria. For control of the natural resources and control of the country.

Have Erdogan ever had any plans of becoming a "rocket man" with nukes?

It is obvious why USA is the most hated nation on the planet for BETRAYING even own allies whenever it feels like doing this for its own selfish interests. Even Saddam and Gaddafi both were allies of the USA a fact Erdoğan knows soo very well.

The Roman Empire destroyed Carthage as US-Israel destroys countries such as Iraq, Libya, Syria ...

The Americans are fine with the Turks stealing Northern Syria. Even better if Israel and Irak steal some chunks too and they figure they can relocate the Kurds and use them to sow unrest in some other part of Syria or they will just let them get exterminated. To the Deep State the Kurds have served their purpose.

Turkey hit the Kurds because the USA wants to divide Syria into sections that they can control. Turkey does not want a hostile regime on their borders and the US wants to contain Turkey so that they do not break away from NATO and thus it's control. We now have conflicting interest for control of that part of Syria. With the northern parts of Syria under control of the Syrian control, Turkey knows that the Kurds will not be able to cause border problems within Turkish own Kurdish population.

It is an interesting question why Turkey is so afraid of having the kurds minding their own business in a particular area outside Turkey, with the prospect of lots of kurds emigrating from Turkey to that area together with getting rid of lots of conflicts.

The US said they were going to form a "Border Force". A border to protect would be the new US creation of "Kurdistan" . That makes a problem for four countries Syria , Iraq , Iran , and Turkey , because the Kurds want a third of each of those countries .

The US would not stop any terrorists och terrorist states that are against Assad, all for the sake Israel not happy with Assads connection with Hezbollah an connection with Iran who is outspoken about what Israel is.

Trump looks at it as a game of chess, and the kurds are only some of the small pieces under his control, and he sacrifies them now. But there is another chess player around, waiting: Putin.

US ‘needs to stop supporting terrorists’ to avoid possible clash with Turkey in Syria – Deputy PM https://www.rt.com/news/416941-us-turkey-clash-syria/

But US itself is a terrorist. Just look up for "Timber Sycamore" CIA operation in the middle east.

F.ck yeah. Erdogan has turned on the US like a Pittbull. ... I think Erogen has been struck with some kind of paranoia and "recognizes" enemies everwhere: the kurds, the gulenists, the syrien regime, the US, the EU ... He may have been struck with some kind of war mani and can't stop, similar to what happened to Napoleon and others.

Saudi Arabia is more suspected when it comes to funding ISIS, who is very similar to Saudi Arabia and is against Palestine, same as Israel and Saudi Arabia whose salafists shoot rockets (that hurts none) from palestinian area in order to "legitimize" Israel to respond with killing more palestinians.

The US neocons define terrorists as those who fight the US or its allies and don't have a country. If those same people fight for the US instead, they instantly become moderate rebels. Thus Russia's advice will be answered with, "what terrorists?" So instead of such friendly suggestions, Russia must insist that the US end its illegal invasion of their ally and back it up with missile attacks on these terrorists. The US only obeys jungle law, and thus only responds to military might.

Where are their sanctions, even they have been proven to support every islamic terrorist organization there is ? If US would be against terrorists, they would of bomb all members of house of saud because they support terrorists in every turn through centuries.

It's a joke thinking that Turkey is a democracy. Turkey occupies kurdish land. Kurds have the right to have their own state, land and their freedom and their own language and that's why they are freedom fighters and not terrosists. They are a dinstict nation from the turkish people and they deserve to be autonomous if they want to. The real terrorists are the turks that nurtured, recruit and train ISIS jihadists. Turkey is a bully going backwards to become a returded islamic state terrorizing all the nations around.
