Turkey is ready to fight in Iraq

79
Ankara does not intend to limit itself to operations in Syrian Afrin, and in case of threats to its security, it will fight with them in Syrian Manbij, east of the Euphrates, as well as in Iraqi regions Sinjar and Kandil, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Chavusoglu said.


Turkey is ready to fight in Iraq


On the eve of the US State Department spokesman Heather Nauert said that Turkey’s actions in Afrin "risk undermining the common tasks of the United States and Turkey in Syria" and called on Ankara to de-escalate.

We will be in Syria until we are finished with terrorism, until it is exhausted, and then we will transfer these territories to their real owners. Calls to limit operation to Afrin for us do not have power. Wherever the terrorist threat comes from - whether it be Sinjar, Kandil, Manbij, the east of the Euphrates - we will fight and destroy it
- said Cavusoglu, speaking in Antalya. Broadcast led channel NTV.

The Turkish Armed Forces 20 of January announced the launch of Operation Olive Branch against the Kurdish forces in Syrian Afrin. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım announced last Sunday about the start of the ground operation in Afrin. Along with Turkey, there are militants "Syrian Free Army", reports RIA News

        A large crocodile walked along the street. We will leave, he says. Thinks that will remain. Well, think. They are plucking the Ottoman Fuhrer there, as if in a loop, he will dump himself. And the overgrown Kurds will calm down after Turkish pigeons with an "olive branch." So we don’t get excited, and even more so Assad, until we get excited.

          Many users are completely off topic about the Kurds. To begin with, the Kurds are far from monolithic. They differ among themselves very much; there is no common religion, or even a common language. The vast majority of Turkish Kurds do not even think of opposing the central government. They live well in Turkey, and some feel free. Many Kurds are successful businessmen, military, engineers, artists .... Who, in a normal mind, agrees to abandon warm places and run through the mountains like a hare in the name of the mythical "Kurdistan"? They may well realize themselves within the framework of Turkey, a strong country with a dynamically developing economy.

            The problem is that Turkey near Erdogan deviated from the path of development of the genius Kemal Ataturk, which made it a dynamic country with a developed economy. Turkey began to slide towards Islamism - a political aggressive interpretation of Islam. Which moves her away from developed countries.
            And the fight against the PKK terrorists turns into a kind of attempt to "restore" the Ottoman Empire.

              actually, under Erdogan, Turkey became
              vibrant advanced economies

              See statistics.
              Kemalism did its job - saved the nation at the most difficult time, since then the number of Turks has increased 10 times, so there is no need to sit further on an isolationist ideology, it's time to return to imperial roots, after all, the heirs of the Ottoman and Seljuk sultanates. I think that it is in this vein that Erdogan reflects, to put it mildly short-sighted to represent him as a stubborn Islamist.
              the fight against the rpc is only the elimination of internal problems; it is not directly related to the restoration of oi.

        Normally, Erdogan will finish everything. He feels the support of Russia and therefore acts without regard to the United States. And the United States is now faced with a choice: which side should it take. If you go to the right, you lose a member of NATO, you go to the left, you will be an enemy of Turkey. They created a fork for themselves. Now let's see how the United States gets out of this situation.

          The US is generally in shock. It turns out that there are countries in the world that are able to pursue an independent policy, and not just dance to their tune. And then who, they are still to the fact that Russia kicks accustomed to eat and eat, and here in general some third world country and younger ally have thought of showing sovereignty.

              PS: I won’t say anything about doctors, but my wife and I had occasion to intersect with Turkish engineers at work. There is nothing to be proud of.

                dear, what should you be proud of? Turkey as a state has taken place a long time ago ... and it can defend its national interests ... does not live on a subsidy from Europe, like your country ...

                have not seen the engineers? construction (engineers), military industrial complex (engineers) ... what can your country boast of in comparison with Turkey ?? give at least one example, calling Turkey a third world country .. you don’t have a military industrial complex, .. you don’t have industry ... you have 3 armored personnel carriers and 5 tanks for the entire Baltic States (3 countries) ... no scientific or other little achievements .. .o Nigeria in the news and you will hear more often))) and if you only hear about how to troll Russia and Russians ... 3 countries of the world is Europe .. where recently, compared to the east, sewers appeared and same-sex marriages are allowed .. .and who doesn’t want the Baltics to judge Turkey, which historically and modernly represents something ... produces and develops unlike some!

                  dear and what to be proud of you?

                  How do you manage in one sentence to be rude and call me "respected"? Schizophrenia? I will answer your boorish attacks, I emphasize that I will answer without respect.

                  What should I be proud of personally? I assure you, I have something to be proud of.
                  - I am proud, among other things, of my belonging to the Great Russian Norod and to the Great Russian culture. I am proud no matter what your folly prompts you when you look at the flags displayed next to my posts.
                  - I am proud of the country in which I had the honor to be born and its great achievements. I am proud despite the fact that this country has long been gone.
                  - I also have some personal achievements, which I am still proud of. Mostly in terms of education and work.

                  I have something to be proud of and not an anonymous forum boom to question it.

                  Now I’ll enlighten you a little about Estonia.
                  have not seen the engineers? construction (engineers)

                  And do you seriously think that there are no builders in Estonia?
                  Or doctors?
                  VPK (engineers)

                  And what is your Turkish military-industrial complex famous for? one fact of its presence?
                  What can your country boast in comparison with Turkey ?? give at least one example, calling Turkey

                  Well, if you please. Let's start with the engineers:
                  - Have you ever heard of Skype? Here are some who call it an Estonian company, which is actually not entirely correct, but the lion's share of the development of Skype during the first 10 years of its life was done in Estonia, including Estonian engineers.
                  - transferwice?
                  - There is such an Estonian company Taxify - last year they were (and still remain) the fastest growing business in Europe.
                  - Under the window, from time to time, a robot-postman from starship technologies drives and tests me. Google for interest what it is.
                  you have 3 armored personnel carriers and 5 tanks for the whole baltic region (3 countries)

                  And what is the country's development is estimated by the number of tanks and armored personnel carriers? Even if this is an old NATO second-hand?
                  no scientific or other minor achievements

                  There is such a city of Tartu, it has a university. In addition to being one of the oldest in the region, he also (further quotes from the site)
                  INCLUDES IN 3% OF THE STRONGEST UNIVERSITIES
                  WORLD Along with Moscow State University and St. Petersburg State University (THE RANKING)

                  INCLUDED IN 1% MOST QUOTED
                  SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTIONS OF THE WORLD (ESI RANKING)

                  But no, of course there is no science here. Not like in Turkey.

                  Note this is all in a country where the population is only 1 \ 55 of the population of your Turkey.

                  I have the honor, unlike the desire to continue any communication with you.

        Contrary to the majority opinion on the site, Turkey will finish everything in the best possible way. Erdogan has the main thing - the support of the vast majority of the population, which is crucial for solving external and internal problems. According to official figures, from the beginning of the operation, Turkey lost 3 soldiers. Troops invaded 8 km. Slow movement is explained by strong mining of the terrain. The Turks do not have to rush. All roads to Afrin under the blows of Turkish aviation and feeding the Kurds is very difficult. With intense fighting, the Kurds will quickly exhaust all their reserves, and new ones are unlikely to be expected. NATO yesterday officially recognized Turkey’s right to self-defense, which was to be expected.

          Hard to tell. After all, Erdogan is not fighting on his territory - the support of his population does not play a role. And ammunition can be thrown by the same staff if they feel that Erdogan has become too independent. Assad also does not like the fact that the Turks are rolling the Syrian Kurds - who will restore the destroyed then !? So it doesn’t depend on a single Erdogan how his operation will turn out. The Arabian monarchs can also win the fight for the support of Erdogan Qatar - after all, they (Qatar) wanted to make him extreme. hi
          And then, this war against the Kurds can bring them together - I think Erdogan does not need such a deal.

            Yes, nothing will happen to them, they will do what they want and no one will be able to prevent them in that region. The maximum will be reprimanded once again. The only one who could hypothetically confront them in that region is Iran. But he doesn’t need it at all.

              I would not be so categorical. The question is not what the Turks can do, but whether they will give it. There is no doubt that the Turkish armed forces are the strongest in the region and can overpower the Kurds, even the united ones. They will occupy the territory, but what will they achieve and what's next? The results can be disastrous. It is unlikely that all opponents will be destroyed, and the remaining and fragmented Kurds can unite ... The world resonance may also not be in favor of the Turks. They will certainly not be stroking the Kurds from the PKK, etc. .. But this is what Western politicians need ... And what will be the loss of the Turks in these battles? All the same, no one will let them calmly hold these territories - no one needs the new Ottoman Empire, but Erdogan may suffer against this success ..

                The question is not what the Turks can do, but whether they will give it.

                Once again, who can possibly not give them anything there on the territory of Syria or Iraq?

                There is no doubt that the Turkish armed forces are the strongest in the region and can overpower the Kurds, even the united ones.

                At the same time, not particularly distracted from ordinary peaceful life. Truly global confrontation is moving from thousands of kilometers of fronts of the 20th century to a series of "limited" conflicts of "low intensity".
                They will occupy the territory, but what will they achieve and what's next?

                Well, for example, they will create some kind of puppet local authority there. Whose task will be to keep the Kurds in check, and for the most part they will go home.
                and the remaining and fragmented Kurds can unite ..

                So after all, they are right now with their ability to unite and fight.
                All the same, no one will let them calmly hold these territories - nobody needs a new Ottoman Empire,

                And what will they do then? They will express their deep concern - as if for a long time. Sanctions will be imposed - as if it were not the first time, and secondly, so Turkey would fall directly into global trends. Specifically, in the trend of separation of economies and the collapse of a single world economy, once again divided into parts.
                Erdogan may suffer amid this success ..

                But such comments sincerely surprise me. I began to wonder at them even when in 2014 I began to hear from Svidomo Ukrainians that Putin suffered that he had megalomania and that he was reviving the Soviet Union and in general that he was mentally ill.

                Do you seriously think that a person of his position can just like that take and carry? Do you think that if he was worn heavily, he would be where he is now? No, of course he is an emotional person, noticeably more emotional than Putin, and changeable. That's just the fact that he would "carry" I personally would not expect in any case.

                  Erdogan with his pan-Turkism in Central Asia even got the Uzbeks. That's what it is about - do you know much about this idea? Create a Union of Türks with your person at the head? Karimov gave him a specific stop, and NAS smiled. I agree that after a series of tensions with the Russian Federation and the coup, he has neither fuse. But the fact that he is too emotional.
                  And who gave him the right to host in Syria and Iraq? Can you guarantee that Erdogan will not arrange genocide for the Kurds? In this case, he will make trouble - do you agree ?! It doesn’t matter what army he has - everyone will be against him.
                  Puppet power - as you see it - Assad, Iran, Russia, this is definitely not necessary in Syria !? The Kurds are already asking Assad to pacify the Turks. He will give Erdogan some more time to show his Kurds with whom they should live, and then how can he be silent - will he restore the damage ?! Same thing in Iraq.
                  Well, imagine yours. He planted puppets, but made enemies in the south. Iraq and Syria will put pressure on the United States and the Russian Federation, respectively, incl. both to Iran to remove Erdogan. He will master such pressure and whether he needs it - the Kurds will "amaze" him with terrorist attacks.
                  In my opinion, you are mistaken - the Kurds are too fragmented. The independence of Iraqi Kurdistan in Syria, Turkey and Iran, the Kurds did not particularly support. Barzani's game miscalculated well. After all, he traded oil with Erdogan. They closed the shop and he demanded independence to please the locals. After all, they have long been cut off by bearded men from Iraq - which did not previously require independence !?
                  I just explain why I would not be so categorical in Erdogan's capabilities. And I like that he goes against the coalition of the West, which wanted to create 30 thousand groups. on the border of Turkey and Syria. The Pentagon clearly did not like this.

                    Create a Union of Türks with your person at the head?

                    And as for the fact that I’m headed, I’m not very sure. Firstly, he is no longer young, and secondly, this is not his personal idea either. These are the aspirations of a significant part of their elites and people.
                    Karimov gave him a specific stop, and NAS smiled.

                    How to tell you. Maybe I got it, but there is one thing. Only large and strong regional interethnic associations have a path to the future. Small countries alone in our world will not see the future - do not survive them in global competition, and do not escape the fate of new colonies. I’m writing to you from Estonia if that :). Small countries (including Russia) need to unite with someone. The Soviet unification project crashed at the end of the last century. For Russia, with the CIS and later with the Eurasian Union, so far it is not very unifying. It is not possible to unite with China, neither Uzbekistan nor Kazakhstan, and indeed Russia itself too. He simply swallows and does not choke, colonizes and assimilates. So the question arises: with whom and on the basis of what can one unite? The question is not empty. I do not claim that "Panturkism" is the best answer to it, but still one of the answers.
                    And who gave him the right to host in Syria and Iraq?

                    The right of the strong
                    Can you guarantee that Erdogan will not arrange genocide for the Kurds?

                    Am I personally? :) Most likely not, but I want to hope that now the times are not the same. If he had arranged genocide, then only with the hands of some IG.
                    Puppet power - as you see it - Assad, Iran, Russia, this is definitely not necessary in Syria !?

                    He will not ask Assad for sure - he is too weak a player in this game. Others do not like it, but do they decide on retaliatory steps and which ones?

                    He will master such pressure and whether he needs it

                    This is what we will see soon. Analysts have long said that Russia will not overpower the war in Syria, and that Assad still certainly will not sit in Damascus ... It seems to have changed their minds already. But yes, of course, it carries certain risks for Turkey and Erdogan, but it seems to me that in the worst case they will simply remain “at their own”.

                    In my opinion, you are mistaken - the Kurds are too fragmented.

                    Yes, in fact, the Kurds as a single force, as I understand it, are not and never have been.
                    And I like that he goes against the coalition of the West, which wanted to create 30 thousand groups. on the border of Turkey and Syria. The Pentagon clearly did not like this.

                    This is really good.

                      In fact, the integration of the Turkic countries was proposed by the National Academy of Sciences - Erdogan saddled this idea so that those Uzbeks “jumped away”. wink . and stopped responding.
                      There is another force against the Turkish force. Imagine that Assad will begin to bring down planes and the Russian Federation will support it. Yes, the Turks give up instantly in the air. After the ATGMs the Kurds will begin to ship - I believe that the Syrians have become the most experienced army in the region and this cannot be ignored.
                      Once the Turks entered Syria, they are responsible for the occupied territories and if there is a mountain of corpses, then Erdogan will not get out. I don’t think that he will take prisoner PKK members, etc. Kurdish organizations. Understanding this, the Kurds can fight to the last. And look at the loss of the Turks. hi

            so Erdogan is supported not only by the population of Turkey ... but also the Kurds of the same Syria (the Kurds who adhere to Sunni Islam, and most of them ...) ... do not forget how many Kurds live in Turkey ... and most of them are far from Rpk ... and supports the mood of Turkey ... the same Hakan Fidan (head of national intelligence MIT) is a Kurd ...

                Most of the Kurdish people living on the territory of Turkey and on the territory of Bv support the policy of Turkey ... the point is that not all Kurds are terrorists and enemies of Turkey ... like not all Ukrainians are enemies of Russia ... in Bv more often, so the religious component connects more than ethnic ... the example of Syria, the Arabs began to fight with the Arabs ... the Persians supported one of the parties ... the example of Iraq, the Arbs crushed each other until the Kurds gained autonomy ... the example of Yemen, the Arabs are fighting with the Arabs ... then the same with the Kurds

              I agree with you about Amer’s mongrels ... in the near future, Russia and Turkey will remain allies, because their interests will coincide for a rather long time ... like Iran ... despite the contradictions between Turkey and Iran, there are common interests, these are reluctances see the Kurdish state on part of its territory and confrontation with the west
              after Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia, the Arab countries (SA, Egypt, the UAE, etc.) suddenly sharply sanctioned a small Qatar (also Arab), which has rather close ties with Turkey ... the confrontation with the west pushes Turkey, Iran and Russia into an embrace friend, no matter how anyone likes it

        But I’m worried. Bolshevik Russia, along with the Turks, already participated in the war against Armenia. And I would not want a repeat. But while the policy of Russia, or rather its semblance, harms the existence of the state.
        For your information, Russia and Armenia have the same geopolitical goals. Let me give an example, the Turks entered the territory of Shirvan and Arann under the pretext of protecting their blood brothers, and the so-called Azerbaijan on the lands of Lezghins, Avars, Tats, Udins, Talyshs and Armenians. Where is the autonomy of these listed peoples? The same will be in the north of Syria. And what heels in your opinion, then probably the policy of Russia is pushing the Armenians to other friendly countries as well. As you strive for Turkey. The agreement concluded with the EU is by no means against Russia. Moreover, it is truncated.
        almost every your post that Russia betrayed the Kurds! I haven’t fulfilled my obligations! What ??? your Armenian? enmity with Turkey?) For your Armenian interests should the Russians die again ??? should again ignore the interests of their state ??? for the sake of Armenia?

        I am Armenian and not encrypted like yours. I treat Turks and Kurds the same way, two peoples stand each other. I do not understand the actions of the leaders of a great country who belittle themselves to the level of Turkey.
        Only Armenians fought for Armenian interests, while others used it. I would like to know the interests of Russia, is it Turan? It’s coming to this, just don’t say that this is nonsense. Your Fuad has split into a talk show, and the leader of Kazakhstan will not wait for the unification of the Turkic peoples, which is the death of Russia. And so the war in Afrin, and preferably in the Rakki Kurdistan with the Turks, is only for the benefit of civilization.

    The Turks finally had a chance to clear the field from the now hated Kurdish American friends. They offered the Kurds to enter the settlement process, but they chose the US military depots and turned on their Wishlist, so Russia, trying to convince them again, realized that it was useless and sad to show the “face” to the Sultan and left the region. And One player has become less on the map.

    The Kurds wanted their state; autonomy is not enough for them. Could calmly and slowly unite, but no. Let now eat a lot and tasty, so you look and Iraq and Iran will catch up. Now they are kicking well, and there you look all the ardent and free will be reduced. It’s a pity for ordinary Kurds, but Turkey will definitely not give them half the country, Ottoman imperial ambitions will not allow it. They cannot even agree among themselves, but Kurdistan is great.

    They used to say this: a glass fool fool ... not for long. Either it will fly, or it will lose.
    The Sultan wants, but whether it can - this is a question.
    His army is hot and the largest, in the region, but not very combat-ready. And when the boxes begin to arrive in Turkey, this may not be pleasant to the residents.
    A ground military unit will be more complicated and more dangerous than bombing itself as a VKS.

    Although the Kurds howled, they were still not very scared.
    That's when the count of killed Kurds goes to thousands, then they will start spinning, like in a frying pan.
    But if the Kurds in Turkey itself raise their heads, then the Sultan will not be very fun.
    So the statement to get into Iraq is the populism of a hot Turk, and no more.

    The Sultan will go to Iraq - well, a flag in his hands, a drum around his neck.
    He was personally in the Persian Gulf, during the next war of the Bush family. Not on vacation, at work, though not in the conflict zone itself. Seen enough and Arabs and Syrians and Pakistanis and Turks and all sorts. After only two weeks, I clearly understood, looking at the next “native”, how he mentally wonders how to cover the unfaithful pale-faced person.
    Honestly, the Kurds-Turks are not sorry for any of the parties to the conflict. The main goal of the Russian Federation has already been achieved - oil on the market is already $ 70, further military operations, even without the Russian Federation, will contribute to the game to increase the cost of a barrel. Here is the current all the foam will go to the inhabitants of Londongrad - but such is the reality.

      I think that the U.S. is safe and sound. Tilerson is directly involved in the sale of oil. But it took a little time, otherwise the European partners would test. Still, they are buyers of oil and gas, not sellers. I more believe in the connection between Trump and Russia oil giants, not some other line. Money doesn’t smell and the elites of the two states associated with the sale of oil products fully have common goals to increase the cost of oil and lower the cost of production. A war is the best way to achieve two business goals.
