Pentagon: Turkey’s Fighting With Kurdish Forces Unacceptable

  • Published on Aug 29, 2016
    The Pentagon says clashes between the Turkish army and US-backed Kurdish forces are unacceptable. Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook condemned the fighting south of the Syrian town of Jarablus. He called on all sides to stand down and take appropriate measures to de-conflict. He stressed that fighting is taking place in areas where Daesh is no longer present. The Turkish army and the militants supported by Ankara have clashed with Kurdish forces several times in northern Syria over the past days.

NATO Split: Germany ‘Mulling Pullout From Turkish Airbase’

  • NATO Split: Germany ‘Mulling Pullout From Turkish Airbase’
    by AFP, via BREITBART JERUSALEM 
    BERLIN (AFP) – Germany’s military is preparing to pull out from a Turkish airbase as a row between the two NATO partners escalates, Der Spiegel magazine reported Thursday.

    Germany in December agreed to send Tornado surveillance jets and tanker aircraft to the Incirlik base in southern Turkey to aid the multinational coalition fighting the jihadist Islamic State group and currently has about 240 soldiers stationed there.

    But Turkey has repeatedly refused to allow visits to Incirlik by German politicians, prompting junior coalition partner the Social Democrats (SPD) to demand Germany’s withdrawal from the airbase.

    Germany’s military is a parliamentary force, meaning that MPs have decision-making power over deployments.A German mandate in Incirlik runs out at the end of the year, and the SPD has threatened to block its extension. “If it is no longer possible to visit our soldiers, then it is out of the question to extend the mandate,” Rainer Arnold, the SPD’s defence expert, told Spiegel.

    Without citing its sources, the news magazine said the defence ministry is examining whether it could transfer its deployment to Jordan or Cyprus instead. Tensions have been rising between Germany and Turkey over the German parliament’s decision to brand as genocide the World War I-era massacre of Armenians by Ottoman forces, as well as Ankara’s threat to back out of a crucial March deal with the EU on migrants.

    Berlin also angered Ankara by criticising President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s post-coup crackdown, in which more than 40,000 state employees have been arrested.

Turkey’s Invasion Into Syria Adds to Growing Strain on US Strategy

  • Not entirely sure I understand what is going on with Turkey’s invasion of Syria.
  • Turkey’s Invasion Into Syria Adds to Growing Strain on US Strategy
    by Jason Ditz, http://antiwar.com/ , August 24, 2016 
    Biden Demands Kurds Abandon Manbij Immediately
    After over two solid months of US airstrikes in support of Kurdish forces, they finally managed to take the city of Manbij away from ISIS earlier this month, with US officials touting it as a huge victory. Today, Vice President Joe Biden demanded the Kurds immediately relinquish control of the city and withdraw back across the Euphrates River or risk losing US support.

    It’s a puzzling combination of moves by the US in an ever more convoluted war in Syria, with the US desperately trying to fight a growing number of enemies and support an ever-increasing number of “allies” who are at one another’s throats.

    Turkey’s invasion of Syria today just adds to what is an increasingly volatile mix, and almost certainly was the reason why the US suddenly demanded publicly that Manbij, just south of the newly seized Turkish-occupied Jarabulus, needs to be ceded.

    Turkey, after all, is a major US ally, and if there’s one thing Turkey doesn’t care for, it’s Kurds. Turkish officials even claimed previously that the US had “promised” the Kurds wouldn’t keep Manbij, and while the US never admitted to this, it sounds like one of the many promises they’ve made to the Turkish officials about limiting Kurdish territorial growth.

    The Kurdish forces showed no sign of leaving Manbij, and Turkey’s invasion forced the issue, and forced the US to actually make a choice between the two sides. That said, Turkey’s hostility toward the Kurds is unlikely to end with Manbij, and the US is likely to have to continue walking a tightrope on these allies.

    The same Kurdish forces picked a fight with the Syrian military further east last week, and in that case the US was quickly sucked into militarily backing that fight, even though it had nothing to do with ISIS. Several officials were thrilled, since they wanted a shift of the war away from ISIS and against the government. Even then, the Kurds quickly reached a ceasefire with the Syrian military, which left the US with a needless no-fly zone imposed on a territory in northern Syria.
The Syrian war is over competing gas pipelines to Europe by the West and Russian backed Iran-Iraq. It is a energy war.

The Debate – Turkey Syria Incursion

  • Published on Aug 24, 2016
    It’s called Operation “Euphrates Shield: For the first time in the war on Syria, Turkey’s army has entered Syria. This is stated to be the first major offensive into Syria against ISIL. While Turkey’s president says operation is against ISIL and Kurdish militia, in this edition of the debate, we’ll look at why Syria says its sovereignty has been breached, why Syria has accused Ankara of replacing Daesh with other terrorist groups, why Kurdish officials warn Turkey is entering a “quagmire”, and whether this risks pitting Russia and Syria air forces against the US.

Turkey Slams Israel’s Airstrikes on Gaza as Disproportionate

  • Published on Aug 22, 2016
    Turkey has strongly reacted to Israel’s latest blitz on the Gaza Strip in response to an alleged rocket fire from the besieged enclave. In a statement, the Turkish foreign ministry slammed the aggression as disproportionate and unacceptable. On Sunday, the Israeli army carried out up to 50 airstrikes on the Palestinian territory after one rocket reportedly fired from there landed into Israel. The Israeli raids left several Palestinians wounded. The blistering condemnation came just days after the Turkish parliament approved an agreement aimed at normalizing diplomatic ties with Israel. Ankara-Tel Aviv relations soured in 2010 after Israeli commandos killed ten Turkish activists on a flotilla seeking to deliver aid to Gaza.

Turkey Accepts Role for Assad in Syria Transition

  • Game over for US policy of removing Assad. Turkey has flipped 100% to Russia. Great victory for Russia-Putin.
  • Published on Aug 20, 2016
    The Turkish prime minister says his country is willing to accept a role for President Bashar Assad during the transition period in Syria. Binali Yildirim says Turkey is willing to become more of a regional player in regard to Syria over the next six months. He added that Ankara will not allow the country to be ethnically divided, and prefers a system in which all ethnic groups are represented. Meantime, Yildirim says the US is Turkey’s strategic partner, not its enemy despite the ups and downs in the two countries’ relations. He added that they need to remove the elements that are harming their relations, including the speeding up of the extradition of US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen who is held responsible for the failed coup attempt by Turkey.

Turkey: Russia Can Use Incirlik (NATO Airbase) If It Wants To

  • Game over for US-Pentagram+NATO. They have lost the land bridge between Europe-Asia ie. Turkey, Asia Minor. It also means the West will be losing their hegemony over the Middle East very soon.
  • Published on Aug 21, 2016
    Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says Russia can use the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey, if it wants. Yildirim denied media reports that Moscow pressured Ankara to use the base to conduct airstrikes against Daesh in Syria. He said no such request has been made so far, but, Russia can use the base as several other countries do. Russia and Turkey have recently moved to mend ties that soured in November last year, after Ankara downed a Russian warplane over Syria. Earlier this month, Ankara apologized to Moscow for the incident. The presidents of the two countries also met in Moscow where they raised the issue of military cooperation on the fight against terror groups including Daesh in Syria.
