    I already wrote that they will soon begin to bomb Syrian troops if they begin to smash the IS. Well, the Kurds will get under the guise.

      Yes, not likely, but it will be so! And then with a round eyes, ISIS will be bombed, but by mistake they hit the Syrian troops and the Kurds respectively.

      First, the country is a fan of the Yankees, chastely provides its land for their military base, and always ends with the same boots of an American drunken sergeant on the table at its president! angry

      "Got access to use the base" - and therefore turn a blind eye to the PKK bombing, which is also fighting against ISIS.

      There is such an old Russian fun - to beat the Turks ... It looks like Erdogan is no longer a "bad guy" for the West and again "his boyfriend". I wonder what mutual interests did they agree on?

    In this world, very often not doing is made "visible", but what is actually done is not made visible. Who needs that kind of secrecy? Those who are clearly not striving for what is good for others ...

    Concluding any agreements with the USA is the same as negotiating with the pace. They will sell the Turks, then they will buy it and again they will sell it.

    "The American military got the right to use the Incirlik airbase in Turkey." However, it did not work out in Ukraine, the Turks gave up. It is interesting to bomb the Turks, shout against the IS, and strike at the Kurds and Syrians.

    joint use of the Incirlik air base in the fight against the Islamic State militants.

    It is not for nothing that Turkey convened an emergency meeting of NATO (by the way for the fourth time). For Turkey, ISIS (in their opinion) is not as terrible as the Kurds. And not only the Kurds will be bombed, but also Assad’s troops.

      This is already clear, the Turks have long wanted to get some of the Syrian territories and this is a chance, Israel also does not stand still and began to conduct sudden exercises at the same time as the announcement of the protective doctrine of Turkey at the UN.

      So, soon Syria will be divided openly and not embarrassed.

    I don’t believe the Turks. And that the base will be used only to combat IS. Under this sauce will be a showdown with Syria. And for the USA, the principle works: the main thing is to get in, later you’ll get rid of horseradish ... your US issues will be resolved.

    Well, they got the go-ahead from the Turks, and what's wrong with that? The Turks would have refused, the Israelis would have helped. Everything is cooked there in one pot.

    Neither Turkey nor the United States will destroy Yigil, not for that they created them, they buy oil from them and arm them. ISIS is a cover for the fight against the Kurds and the destruction of Syria.

    Americans are constantly mistaken when dropping weapons from the air, which for some reason lands in the zone of control of the needles.

    There were opinions that Russia did not need a military base in Armenia. The actions of the Turks and Americans show that there will definitely not be an extra base in Gyumri, as they say, "for every fireman."
