    Turkey Begins Syria Attack, Targeting Militia Backed by U.S.

    That huge sucking sound you hear is the sound of the Trump presidency going down the toilet.


    Kurds in Syria Brace for War as Turkey Says Incursion Is Imminent - The New York Times


    Turkey’s planned move to root out Kurdish militants in northeastern Syria, after the United States withdrew its forces from two observation posts near the border, has sparked fierce debates in Washington and could

    I feel so horrible for those people left on their own for the wolves to devour then there's the little fact that there's about 10,000 ISIS hardened fighters that have been imprisoned there in Syria who will be free to re-emerge as a strengthened and viable threat worldwide. What a ****ing bloody bad mistake Trump has made here. Understanding that he's a Russian asset makes a whole lot of sense.

    Notice everyone has forgotten all about the Mueller investigation and the fact that Trump is defying congress?

    Turkey begins military offensive in Syria, days after Trump announced pullback of US troops

    Turkey has launched a planned military offensive into northeastern Syria, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced Wednesday, just days after the Trump administration announced it was pulling US troops back from the border area.

    "Our aim is to destroy the terror corridor which is trying to be established on our southern border and to bring peace and peace to the region," Erdogan tweeted.

    Erdogan is calling this operation, "Peace Spring". About as Orwellian as it can get.

    We are watching the roots of a new America-hating caliphate being birthed. Expect blowback in a couple years.

    Calamity had already started a nice thread on that subject. Maybe you want to merge yours with that one?

    Turkey launches offensive against Kurdish fighters in Syria

    Turkey launches offensive against Kurdish fighters in Syria

    "Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the start of the campaign, which followed an abrupt decision Sunday by U.S. President Donald Trump that American troops would step aside to allow for the operation."

    "Trumpís move represented a shift in U.S. policy that essentially abandoned the Syrian Kurdish fighters who have been Americaís only allies on the ground in Syria. They were longtime U.S. allies in the fight against the Islamic State group."

    ======================]

    Trump is the worst president in American history. This is unbelievable.

    Those Kurds weren't going to ethnically cleanse themselves, you know. Trump is a brave man giving Erdogan and Putin this chance to take over.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    You left out Iran. They are going to turn to one or a combo of each of them to survive now. Welcome to WW3.
