Turkey Invades Syria, Supposedly to ‘Clear Out ISIS’ – Now Attacking Kurdish Militias

Turkey 2nd Army-Border Guardian or Invasion Force?

Turkey 2nd Army-Border Guardian or Invasion Force? Answer: Invasion Force!

  • I am still confused as to which side is Erdogan-Turkey with? The simple answer could be: Erdogan is on Erdogan’s side, to hell with the wishes of US-NATO, Russia, Syria, Kurds …. Snake Erdogan seems to be betraying Russia-Syria and yet he seems to be ditching US-NATO. We will need to see how this plays out.
  • Turkey Invades Syria, Supposedly to ‘Clear Out ISIS’ – Now Attacking Kurdish Militias
    To little fanfare in the West, NATO member Turkey began a ground invasion into northern Syria. Initially, Turkey claimed their operation was in order to support “Syrian rebels”  who aim to recapture territory from ISIS, but now we discover that may have only been the cover story.

    Four days ago, “Allied Syrian rebels” backed by the United States and Turkey – had seized the ISIS-held town of Jarabulus, Syria – supposedly cutting off ISIS’s last open route into Turkey.

    The main “allied rebel” group working with Turkey is said to be none other than Faylaq al-Sham – a known Islamist militant terrorist group whom the West spuriously list as “moderates.” This latest move now gives these US-NATO- backed terrorist forces control of a key choke point inside Syria. The NYT reported:

    “Numerous fighters posted photographs and videos of themselves online with the green, black and white flag adopted by the Syrian opposition as they walked through empty streets where the black flag of Islamic State still flew; it appeared that most of the militants had fled without a fight.”

    However, US-NATO-Turkey had another goal in mind, another real objective of this invasion exercise: to crush Syrian Kurdish militias who are fighting US-NATO-backed Islamist terrorists (including ISIS) and whom Turkey considers ‘a threat’ to its national security. Washington appears to playing the piggy in the middle, seemingly acting as broker to both sides of the Turkey vsKurdish militia equation. But are they really ‘brokering’ anything, or is this just more NATO smoke and mirrors working towards their ultimate goal of destroying the Syria and instituting ‘regime change’ in Damascus?

    Indeed, this was confirmed today, as Turkish military forces are now in clashes with nearly every Kurdish-linked group in Syria; the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and pro-Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), the Syrian affiliate of the militant Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Iraq and Turkey – all of whom are meant to be fighting ISIS. Instead, they are now busy dodging Turkish artillery rounds.
