Erdogan - USA: Why don't you stop your operations in Afghanistan and Iraq?

28
The Turkish army has extended its military operation against the armed YPG units to the north of Iraq. At night, for several hours, Turkish military aircraft attacked areas controlled by US-backed Kurdish armed units.


The General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces reports that the aircraft of the Turkish Air Force attacked the positions of terrorists (this is how Ankara calls Kurdish troops in northern Iraq and Syria) in the area of ​​Zap, located near the Turkish border.

It is stated that the operation in the said area was a response to the shelling of Turkish territory from Iraqi Kurdistan, as well as to the statements of the leaders of the Kurdish armed groups that they would contribute to the displacement of the war in Turkey itself.

De jure, Turkey is conducting an operation against the militant wing of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, which is recognized as a terrorist organization not only by Turkey, but also by the United States and the EU.

Erdogan - USA: Why don't you stop your operations in Afghanistan and Iraq?


Against this background, the command of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDS) appealed to Moscow and Brussels to take a "clear position on the Turkish military operation in Afrin." At the same time, Turkish President Erdogan announced the condition for termination of the operation.

Erdogan:
We are determined. The operation will end when we confront the terrorists. We reported this to our friends in Russia, as well as to other representatives of the coalition.


At the same time, Erdogan criticized the call of the US State Department to stop the operation “Olive Branch”. Erdogan:
I ask you: in Afghanistan, in Iraq, the terms of your operations have expired? But you're still there. It is not a matter of calculation (terms) mathematically. We will curtail the operation when we achieve success at the southern borders.

    Erdogan goes on the offensive. The coup attempt was clearly not without US involvement.

            Russia will not come to replace the Turks. We have opposite goals.
            We want a strong friendly Syria, strong friendly Kurds and a peaceful, non-rattling weapon in Turkey (it’s impossible to make friendly anytime soon). But Erdogan wants a strong Turkey with a powerful army, and that the Kurds with Assad would quietly sit under the broom and not breathe.
            What is getting away with it is that it is moving in the direction the United States needs - the escalation of violence in the region. While his activities will keep millions of refugees in the EU, they will only threaten him with a finger, calling for a "peaceful resolution of the issue." In practice, they will also plant weapons.

          Pasha, so old friends put a knife to his throat. At first they “weakened” - the Germans withdrew their Patriots. The attacks began. Then they began to flirt with the Kurds, supplying weapons and ammunition, training them. Then they thought of a military coup. Europe does not allow the EU. Harnessed with Qatar caused a complication with the Arabian monarchs. Barmalei of all stripes throughout the southern border. Maybe the next color revolution will happen in Turkey? So Erdogan has something to be nervous about and lead to provocative rhetoric.
          It is curious to observe how the two NATO allies bark. Moreover, the first and second countries in terms of the number of armed forces in NATO. In fact, the purchase of S-400 is indicative:
          1. If you saw threats from the East, you would purchase western air defense systems. And vice versa. Therefore Erdogan sees threats from the West.
          2. If you would like to leave the alliance, what would you do? Probably remove the threat from the air. NATO (USA) used to start with the help of aviation and the Kyrgyz Republic - S-400 Erdogan would be welcome.
          3. This attack on the Kurds of Erdogan shows that NATO does not decree him. The Turks are already demanding that the states take away the weapons that they delivered to the Kurds. And this is already impossible.
          Any exacerbation of the \ "allies" of the alliance can push the emotional Erdogan to exit the block. It seems to me that everything is going to this, otherwise the "partners" to the Turk "will sign the verdict." So they squeezed Erdogan, that he took such rhetoric. hi

              Erdogan shows strength and will lead out to the guise of his barmalei. Syria and Russia, the actions of the Turks against the Kurds, no matter how cynical, but beneficial. States made bets on Kurds seem in vain - the Turks certainly did not like it. Assad, while the pro-Turkish barmaleys are distracted, we must continue to roll up the others. It seems that the Arabian monarchs washed their hands - maybe they will pay Erdogan so that he brings out the most significant barmaley for them. It seems to me that this is the second task for Erdogan after the "struggle" with the Kurds in this operation - to withdraw his barmaley. hi

        No, Erdogan understands that only in Iraq or Syria is it necessary to create a state and a war with Turkish Kurds will turn into disaster for Turkey.

      This coup was developed by them, about which D. Kerry himself actually let slip during its implementation. If successful, Edut would have sat in the place of Davutoglu, who played along with the mattresses in the incident with a Russian plane, giving the order for its destruction. The mattresses were waiting for this to develop a military conflict between the Russian Federation and Turkey, so that the United States and K, meanwhile, would quietly finish Syria, but it would not grow together because Edik turned out to be smarter, for which the United States wanted to eliminate it.

        Mom told them to study better. Learn to read and write.
        We would read the tale of A.S. Pushkin and stop in time.
        And now we will all see what a "broken Kurdish trough" is.
        I do not gloat.
        But I do not welcome.

    An unspoken agreement works quite well. Russia and Assad take control of Idlib and its environs, and the Turks are engaged in a showdown with the Kurds. And no one bothers anyone. Everything is logical.
