Military Review

Will the American support of the Kurds in Syria lead to an armed clash with Turkey?

57
The situation in Syria is unfolding in such a way that a direct conflict between Turkey and the United States is very likely. Recall that earlier in the publication of the Washington Post appeared material in which it was told about the US readiness to leave its contingent in the SAR after the defeat of ISIS (* prohibited in the Russian Federation). The main goal of the United States is reportedly to support the Kurdish forces against Bashar al-Assad.


The Kurds themselves are not eager to fight against the Syrian government forces, and even in territories with a predominantly Arab (non-Kurdish) population.

Official Ankara actively opposes the active support of the Kurdish armed forces. According to the Turkish authorities, any strengthening of the Kurdish military component in Syria is primarily threatened by Turkish security.

Will the American support of the Kurds in Syria lead to an armed clash with Turkey?


Syrian journalist Riyadh Farid Hijab wonders about whether Washington is ready to bring the situation to a direct confrontation with Ankara. According to Farid, this development is unlikely, and therefore the US will try to make an effort to make the Kurds act exclusively in the southern direction, “biting” the government forces. That's just how it shows история American invasions, the United States rarely manages to maintain full control over those armed groups, the support of which Washington sees as a tool for solving their own problems.

      To prevent this from happening, we must urgently get rid of the American presence in Syria in the most cardinal way - by stripping (of course, with a warning for 24 hours) ... am

        Put a plus, of course, but these are dreams. Until we can not throw them away ...
        But I think that the Kurds will not go to confrontation. They will bargain, at the same time threaten, and beg. But with the Turkish threat and the illusive support of the United States, they will most likely agree with Assad. The main thing is that he be softer.

        "Members of the Defense and Internal Affairs Committee Parliament of Serbia complained to their colleagues from Russia on the fact that NATO puts unrealistic pressure on the country's leadership to force it to join the military bloc. This information was shared this Friday, November 24, in the Federation Council. It is noted that this situation perfectly demonstrates all the duplicity of the position of the North Atlantic Alliance. At first, the military bloc politically forces countries to become part of NATO, and then publicly announces that it was supposedly asked of them, and they could not refuse. “This contradicts the official statements that we always hear from NATO structures,” the Federation Council said. They also added in the upper house of the Russian parliament that this is not the first time that a military bloc is trying to force neutral countries into its ranks. Note that this all looks doubly cynical, since it was NATO aircraft that dropped bombs on Belgrade and Yugoslavia during the war in Kosovo.

        The withdrawal of troops is a recognition of Russia's victory in the entire Middle East region and the failure of all US foreign and military policy. And this is a recognition of the strength of Russian weapons and Russia's competence in matters of world security.
        Until recently, the Yankees will use the Kurds as a tool to maintain tension in the region.

    Rather, the Ishilians and Nusra, and even the Kurds, on orders from the United States, will fall on the Turks, than the Yankees will go against the NATO “allies”! The Yankees will “fight” against Erdogad on the political front. Everything, as always, is blackmail, bribery, persuasion, threats, promises, and in the final, deceit and scam! !!

      The US will not go into direct confrontation with Turkey. With the hands of the Kurds, yes, but at some point, the Americans will simply abandon the Kurds to their fate. Kurds for the United States are simply an element of maintaining instability in the region, no more.

    And in the meantime:
    EU countries are creating an "alternative to NATO." At least that is how the authoritative British publication The Times interprets the signing of the European “defense pact”, which happened the other day. What only the most daring and most visionary analysts could dream and talk about, nevertheless happened - the divorce between Germany and the United States continues and already affects not only the economic and political, but also the military space.

    Slowly and European cautiously, hiding behind the need for "European integration" and "the fight against Russian aggression," German and French leaders create the base of a system that in the future will raise an edge on the question of the uselessness of NATO and the US military presence in the EU

    By the way, no one called for England (in the EU Armed Forces) request

      I don’t agree ... I survived, I didn’t survive ... that’s not the question ... the question is that in the underbelly of Turkey along the southern border there is a Kurdish “cancerous tumor” that threatens most directly, not only the ambitions of Turkey and Erdogan personally , but in general the integrity of Turkey.
      Here, many probably thought that Russia would not dare to enter Crimea in the 14th ... but was there an option not to pick it up for yourself?

    I think that the question is not posed ... is Erdogan ready to smash the ridge of the Kurds? ... I think so now the question is. Recep, I think, is not misled by the tactical "biting" of the Kurds ... his main idea is to prevent any political, military and economic independence of the Kurds. By the way, he is against the presence of 3,14ndos, along his entire southern border ... Still, I think, is just beginning ... The three of Iran, Turkey, Russia met ... notice none of the 3ndos states there are needed even once ... In general, wait and see ...

    We, Russia should not worry about the Turks !! Russia supports the Syrian government there. Even in case of victory over ISIS, the country is divided into parts. There are both opposition and Kurds. Armed armies. Naturally, the central government seeks to control the country as a whole. If we support Assad, we will have to deal with Kurds and others in Syria. for several decades now has been driving the Turks of their Kurds, keeping in check recourse hi
    RS Here Turkey, on the contrary, is an ally to the Syrians. The whole central government of the region, no one needs Kurdistan. This is the loss of territory, population, minerals, etc.

    Kurds will not fight with the Syrian army, and with the Turks, too. In the end, they will retreat to their original cantons and this will end. Kurds are strong only in their places of residence. Here they will definitely not let anyone in.

    penal battalion,
    Irina, such rumors resemble 1941. No, not before, but after June 22. Someone panicked by nature, and someone intentionally raised a panic ... There were many of them then ...

    Yes, the states go out of their way to unleash the next big shooting, and the Kurds here simultaneously have a trump card and a bargaining chip.
    The main theme of their support for pin-dos is the long-standing bad relations of the Kurds with all neighbors, which is why the states are trying, by hook or by crook, to create Kurdish autonomy near Turkey, Iraq and Syria. And then defend it with NATO forces, like Kosovo.
    Old technology, but they have no time or mind for a new one.
    At the moment, the main question is whether the Kurds will be able to understand in time how and why they are being framed.

    Well, our S-400s will come in handy for Turkey! Everything went to this .. the USA all has a new bloody slaughter to unleash.

    To prevent this from happening, we must urgently get rid of the American presence in Syria in the most cardinal way - by stripping (of course, with a warning for 24 hours) ... am

    That's right. They gave the USA 24 hours — to flee from Syria. After 24 hours — all the other Americans were simply destroyed!
    And so it will be right.

    Yeah, as ukrokhryaki understood, they are still beating the South-East of Ukraine.
    In short, with all this Syria, Ukraine-Russia it is necessary to tie it up. And namely, to soak all these geeks and restore peace and order there and take them to Russia and place FOREVER-Russian troops there. If you make them so that Ukrainians soak them in Ukraine and spawned into Russian Orthodox Russia, in Syria, the Syrians and spawned into Russian Orthodox Russia.
    That's the solution to the problems. See. How simple and effective is it ???
