The head of the Pentagon warned Turkey against conducting a military operation against Kurdish detachments in northern Syria

The United States reacted to the statements of the Turkish authorities about their readiness to launch a new ground operation in northern Syria at any time.

Earlier, Ankara announced that it would launch a military operation if the Kurdish armed forces did not leave three regions in northern Syria, including the Manbij and Tel Rifat regions. Thus, the Turkish authorities put a kind of ultimatum to the Kurdish armed groups, which are supported by the United States.

In connection with this development of events, the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, hastened to warn Turkey against launching a military campaign against the so-called "Syrian Democratic Forces". The US Secretary of Defense said in a statement that "the United States strongly opposes escalation."

Austin:

We are against Turkey's military operation in northern Syria. We are talking about this to the Turkish side.

Information was confirmed that Lloyd Austin had telephone conversations with his Turkish counterpart Hulusi Akar. Starting with an expression of condolences in connection with the terrorist attacks in Turkey (earlier, the head of the Turkish Ministry of Internal Affairs did not accept condolences from the United States, calling them the condolences of a criminal who returned to the scene of the crime), the head of the Pentagon told the Turkish defense minister that the airstrikes in northern Syria by the Turkish Air Force "carried an immediate threat to the security of American military personnel." Austin called the actions of the Turkish military unacceptable.

At the same time, the head of the American military department did not say what answer the United States would give if the Turks nevertheless launched an operation against the Kurdish detachments in the SAR.

      And who now supports the Kurds against Turkey's "partner"? And they seem to be even in the same block!

    So let the American "Americans" take their "military" out of their dangerous places. In place of Turkey, I would insist on this. On the site of the whole of Turkey, without exception.

    The US is strongly opposed

    The United States has diarrhea - this is obvious. Someone toss them a roll of paper and spare underpants. And then they go back and start moving forward. So warnings will be sent from filthy offices with drawn curtains and safe houses, such as non-American bully .

      It seems to me that this, alas, is not diarrhea. This is one of the attempts to restore its face in the world.
      If Turkey obeys, the Americans are great and strong.
      If not, then the Americans can handle the Turkish troops. Forces, unequivocally, amers have more.
      It will be interesting to see how Erdogan does. He needs a victory over the Kurds before the elections.

        Needed, it will be. From planes, bomb it ... MANPADS from Ukraine, the Kurds have not yet reached to see, otherwise they would have pinched Erdagan's flyers long ago. recourse

        I understand you. However, their face is too serious concocted.
        This only happens to those who have not brought their diarrhea in public, where it is supposed to. Therefore, the situation "face" and compensates. Face and ridiculous statements about a new perfume and bad ecology.
        Anything in this situation will be good for them. Until they gave a kick, and the euro-shit flew out of the pants completely.

        Yeah, the Turks are bombing the Kurds, the Yusovites in response begin to shoot down Turkish aircraft, and here Turkey appeals to the 5th article of NATO against the States ...;)

        The Americans desperately need Turkey as an ally. So they will wipe themselves off and remain silent. Most likely they will once again arrange a terrorist attack, a coup, demonstrations than enter into a military confrontation

    And what are the striped ones doing in Syria? Did someone invite them? Our contingent is understandable, the Turks are a threat in the border areas, but what are they looking for there or have they forgotten?

      what are they looking for
      There is oil. Where there is oil, there is a "threat to democracy." It is especially good to defend democracy in places where air defense is not developed.

      The fact that no one invited mattress makers never stopped them. Invasions in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Nicaragua, an attempt in Cuba, etc.

    Lloyd Austin hastened to warn Turkey
    Erdogan, of course, "feared" these warnings, all the more hastily made. The President of Turkey has a peculiar attitude towards the President of the United States, and then some "uncle Bens" begins to almost threaten the Sultan. The Americans still have not smelled (or arrogance gets in the way) the character of Erdogan and how it is necessary to talk to him in order to achieve at least something.

    This is how the historical enemy will be forced to make an alliance with Russia. We should give him a push to make it faster.

      Well, here the Turks obviously went too far, the Syrian Kurds are still citizens of Syria, therefore, it is up to Damascus, which the Russian Federation recognizes as the only legitimate government, to decide who the terrorist is, no one allowed the Turks to climb into Syria. Let me just remind you that a few years ago the Russian Federation accused Turkey of buying oil from ISIS, while the Kurds prevented these supplies, and even a representative office of Syrian Kurdistan opened in Moscow and the Kurds themselves were helped with logistical means. And now we stupidly threw them to be devoured by the Turks, these are the "partners" of us.

    He did this in vain. Turkey may not sign the protocol on Sweden's accession to NATO. Only Turkey's signature remained.

    Well, what, in fact, are American soldiers doing there? Who called them there, and by what right are they there?
    No, I understand of course - the right of the strong ... it is impossible to dismiss this. BUT! Then don't whine about what comes over you - because initially you shouldn't be there!
