    In 1991 I was in Turkey and every night for weeks I heard bombers flying overhead. I was told by a Turkish soldier that it was Turkish planes bombing the Kurds in Iraq.

    Well there is something there.....as the Turks fired upon the Kurds. Which now the numbers fleeing Syria into Turkey, was up to 100k. Mostly women, children and seniors.


    Turkish security forces clash with Kurds.....

    Turkish security forces on Sunday fired tear gas, water and paint pellets on dozens of Kurds in a village on the border with Syria, which tens of thousands of refugees have crossed to escape the Islamic State group. The sound of gunfire could be heard from the Syrian side of the frontier where refugees were piling up after authorities temporarily closed the border.

    Police on the ground said they were seeking to prevent Kurdish fighters from entering Syria. However, Private NTV television said the Kurds claimed they wanted to take aid into Syria. The state-run Anadolu Agency reported Kurdish protesters had hurled stones at the security forces.....snip~

    In 91? I doubt they were bombing Kurds in Iraq.

    Okay, so we were training the KR so they could be well trained to kill us. No problem, believe as you will.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I can tell you this, no Green Beret with his salt would be training the Khmer Rouge, North Vietnamese or the Pathet Lao. Not during the Vietnam war as those that I just mentioned were bent on killing any and ever American GI they could along with the ARVN in South Vietnam, the FANK in Cambodia and the Royal Lao in Laos.

    The Green Beret's were being trained at Ft. Bragg, JFK Warfare School and other places to kill the KR, PL and NVA. That my friend is fact.

    It goes back to what I said to whomever, every nation puts their own needs and interests first.

    ISIS is smuggling their Oil thru Turkey and Turkey does know this. Firing on the Kurds wasn't a smart move.

    In which we should be making sure Erdogan understands to not make that mistake again.

    I highly doubt that will happen.
