To the folks who say that Turkey hasn't lifted a finger to help the Kurds in Northern Syria: Can you blame them? I can't. U.S. conservatives spent the better part of the last century articulating arguments against Marxist-Leninist-inspired liberation movements, and now they're chiding Turkey and Obama for not doing more to help these people. Ironic.Washington has said recently that it has engaged in intelligence sharing with Kurdish fighters and officials have not ruled out future arms transfers to the Kurdish fighters.
"The PYD is for us, equal to the PKK. It is a terror organization," (Turkish President Recep Tayyip) Erdogan told a group of reporters on his return from a visit to Afghanistan.
"It would be wrong for the United States — with whom we are friends and allies in NATO — to talk openly and to expect us to say 'yes' to such a support to a terrorist organization," Erdogan said. His comments were reported by the state-run Anadolu agency on Sunday.
