The United States accused Turkey of distracting the coalition from fighting the IS *


Dillon noted that the VTS command announced the transfer of thousands of militants in the Afrin area 1,7. This led to the departure of many commanders of the organization from the Euphrates valley and the limited ability of the coalition to conduct operations against ISIS in the area.

Thus, many of the commanders of these structures left the Euphrates valley. Now we are limited in the ability to carry out intensive operations (against IG *) and put pressure on them
- noted the American military on the phone from Baghdad.

Recall that on January 20, the Turkish armed forces launched a military operation "Olive Branch" against the Kurdish formations in the Syrian city of Afrin. The Turkish military was supported by the militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

This week, the United States expressed concern about reports of a deteriorating humanitarian situation in Afrin. So, in the State Department noted that because of the threat from the Turkish military evacuated the Kurds who live in the city, reports RIA News.

    Most likely they were distracted from the confrontation with the Syrian government forces.

          Turkey has its own goals in the region, which are weakly correlated with the goals of the USA ...
          The revival of the Ottoman Empire is at stake with Erdogan and Boz Kurt fostered by him, what kind of NATO is there ...

          Not yet, but soon))) The Turks, while doing their job on the "Kurdish" issue, are talking loyally with the Americans, but they have more and more reasons to resolve the issue of "American presence" through militants controlled by Ankara without getting into in conflict with the Americans directly. Near Afrin, the Turks discovered an underground warehouse 150 meters long, clogged with American weapons, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, which does not add reason to improve their relations.

    They wanted to say from the support of the IS? ... They distract the Turks of the "exceptional" from the rescue operation to remove the barmalei from under the attack.

    USA blames Turkey
    Wow, how well everything is wrapped up. A NATO member rolls a barrel at the same "member". So not forgetting about Syria for a long time to switch to interpersonal showdowns (which is in question).

    This week, the United States expressed concern about reports of a worsening humanitarian situation in Africa.
    Something I do not recall that the United States provided humanitarian assistance to someone. So what is the concern?

    The Turkish army is the second largest in NATO, and initially Turkey sought to solve its problems and ambitions at the expense of the alliance, but in the end it realized that it could put its ambitions in itself ..... poo, because "comrades" and " friends "on NATO do not want its strengthening in the region. They need an obedient tool to solve their ambitions in the region, and Erdogan is not suitable for this. The EU is closed to him, they do not support the fight against the Kurds, they don’t give a bite off a piece of Syria with oil, and the USA also wants to chop off a piece of Turkey to form a “Great Kurdistan” (who doesn’t spit all the great or exceptional). So after the coup arranged by the most “faithful” allies, Turkey in the end has no other options for how to withdraw their NATO. And to whom to go they also have no options. But do we also need this headache?

    And where did these 1.7 militants go ??? The city of Afrin surrendered without a BATTLE !!!! although everyone thought that it was there that the Turks would be stuck for a long time in urban battles, like the others in Moslu, Raqqa and Aleppo, and then they passed it ONE DAY. See more did not reach

    I would say that the USA is engaged in "self-mutilation" from hopelessness (sorry, of course). Turkey is now completely violet on what and how Americans react. The Turks have their own goals and do not get used to fighting them. The only desired scenario is to strangle US metastases in BV and stay in the same harness with the Russian Federation. Further, misunderstandings will all resolve by themselves.
