Turkish army launches land operation in Iraq

71
The Turkish Ministry of Defense has spread information that the country's armed forces crossed the border with Iraq. The declarative goal of invading a neighboring state is “the fight against international terrorism”. At the same time Iraqi Tanks and armored vehicles headed for those regions that are considered part of Iraqi Kurdistan, and where the positions of the Kurdistan Workers Party, whose representatives actively opposed ISIS militants, are strong.


Turkish army launches land operation in Iraq


According to official Ankara, the operation against the representatives of the PKK (in Turkey, this organization is considered extremist) "is going well." Information Agency Associated Press quotes the representative of the main military department of Turkey:
This is a short-term measure to prevent the escape of terrorists.


Ground operation support the Turkish Air Force. Only today, dozens of air strikes were inflicted on the positions of the Kurds in the north of Iraq. According to the Turkish Defense Ministry, "20 targets destroyed."

At the same time, Ankara does not report how long this “short-term” operation can last, and how exactly it should end ... We need to pay attention to the fact that for the invasion of an independent state of Turkey, no permits of the UN Security Council were needed or an invitation to conduct a military operation by the official authorities of Iraq.

    Turks they are Turks. They start their business under the guise, but the answer will be, if not right now, then.
    And after all, from the states we have gathered ourselves to turn and do not look back at others.
    And ours are to Turkey to rest ISIS patrons on vacation. We don’t have anywhere to spend money on vacation.

      The tourism business in Turkey began to actively develop over the past 20 years, after the armistice with the PKK. Now, because of the cheap oil from the IG, breaking the ceasefire with the Kurds, the tourist industry will collapse.

        You can’t believe Turkey, not only because it is, to put it mildly, an “old adversary” with whom we fought more than once, but also because of their friendship (I hope so) with Israel and their position on Syria. And the oil from ISIS (ISIS) is not the only one they consume.
        ISIS sells oil in collusion with NATO
        The terrorist group controls 60% of the oil producing regions of Syria and, in addition, has already seven wells in Iraq. The Islamic State not only uses the captured oil rigs, but also has been able to increase the volume of daily energy production. Today it is 45 barrels per day. The daily income from these operations is $ 3 million. War is an expensive pleasure, and therefore it is necessary to work very well in order to earn good money.
        “The Americans know very well what is happening, but Erdogan and Obama maintain excellent relations among themselves,” a source told Nafiz Ahmed. “This friendship allows Erdogan to do whatever he pleases, and Obama can only accept the situation as it is.”
        The Spanish La Republica also notes that “there is information that some British companies are involved in Salafi transactions, conducting transactions. It is reported that the Anglo-Turkish oil company Genel Energy, which has connections in the British Parliament, received an order to transport IG oil to refineries

        The logic is that the participation of the Russian military in Syria is at the level of rumors and speculation, and the participation of Turkish troops is confirmed by the Turkish Ministry of Defense.

        Linkor9s21 Both are not good! Not one Assad not one Syria is not worth the life of a Russian soldier (not just a Russian)! Davutoglu mourns for the dead soldiers, there is nothing more dangerous for Turkey than their Kurdish citizens. Any civil war gives rise to new haters of power. Every dead man has a blood-vengeance avenger in the east from time immemorial so. There must be an agreement, and then there will be no end to tears on both sides! But what I respect the Turks, they do not hide their losses, they are sent to the last address with honors of their soldiers with dignity!

            I personally am against Turkey’s policy towards the Kurds, everyone has their own truth, but regardless of ideology and worldview, one should value the soldiers who sacrificed for their homeland or the idea that they think is right. Not every man is given the honor and courage to give his life for his struggle and idea, not every strong in spirit so that to give his life in spite of all excuses (God forbid, less and less will have to do it in the world) But any warrior who does this deserves a remembrance of both Kurds and Turks and Africans. By hiding this, CIS politicians hide the price they have to pay ldatam so narodu.U political ideas from his soldiers The main thing to know what are you fighting but hopefully fewer and fewer people will have to do it! It is necessary to solve the problem can not be solved even we are the people who are different that we can agree!

        Well, because maybe now the Kurds will finally begin to unite and, with arms in their hands, will raise their flag over their long-suffering nation.

        nothing unites as well as a good enemy.

        Good luck to Kurdistan!

        Don’t tell))) In Syria, Russia, Iran and China have great interest, so there are surely ways to slow down the “breathing” or arrange a “hypoxia”.
        There is something else interesting. France almost in unison with Turkey (from 08.09.15/XNUMX/XNUMX) sent its aircraft to "fight ISIS", the Turks entered, the US bombed there, the Bulgarians forbade the passage of Russian transporters to Syria through their airspace ...

      But because there is the Bosphorus, which can be blocked at once. What, then declare war on Turkey? The current situation clearly highlights some secret agreements with Erdogan. The silence of Turkey in Russia's actions in Syria, parity corresponds to the silence of Russia in the Kurdish issue. Weigh what is more important, butting for each vehicle in the courts or elsewhere, or leaving the Turks to butting in their backyard. Moreover, this butting will drag on for several generations. Recently, Assad has only been uncomfortable with Uncle Sam and Qatar, even the Saudis are somewhat sluggish. Looking for some agreement.

        It is difficult to guess, but I will support you. Another thing is interesting. Now military operations, large-scale, I mean, are not taking place in Iraq, Kirkuk and Tikrit seem to be under siege, but only from the south. Are you planning an offensive towards Syria? An agreement to grab oil areas and at the same time solve the Kurdish issue? We’ll look, maybe the Turks will not get far.

                  Again geography. Turkey will block the strait without any problems and American influence in the Black Sea evaporates. And in general, stop blaming these pindocs for everything. War is now needed at least:
                  1. Turks and Azerbaijanis tied to them - pinch Iran (Azerbaijan has long-standing graters with him, and even the same Kurds along the borders); to oust the Kurds (and where without it?), get to the northern Iraqi oil regions.
                  2. The Kurds themselves, in order to protect themselves and to declare themselves miserable, pre-unfortunate, well, to sit on oil, is it really bad?
                  3. Russia (or our oil and gas industry). Russia wants to distribute Turkmen gas itself, to sell it itself, without Arabs.
                  4. Saudi + Qatar + Kuwait - access to the European hydrocarbon market, plus grasp Iran.
                  5. Taki to Iran. Nobody has canceled the export of Shiism and the Islamic Revolution; everyone knows the mutual "lyuboff" with the Sunnis.
                  6. China. Here a separate conspiracy thesis can be deduced. Indeed, in the course of the Arab Spring, the Chinese were forcefully squeezed out of North Africa, and it was precisely they who helped the late Gaddafi with the development of deposits. It is possible they somehow get oil either from Iran or from the Saudi party.
                  As you can see, independent players here without America have a cart and a small cart.
                  About the fact that sovereign Kurdistan will almost certainly become a p_and_ndoss litter, I already wrote. Therefore, it is better to act according to the Truman principle - to help the weakest in a measured manner, so that in the end weaken both sides

                  It doesn’t work in the Middle East realities; it’s enough to recall that after Afghanistan 1989, America itself entered the Middle East, and they adhered to this principle throughout the XNUMXth century.
                  But what, someone already tried to land and search our military transport aircraft flying to Armenia over the territory of Georgia?

                  By plane more expensive than the sea - races, it’s not worth the risk (bros + kakly no longer let airplanes, rodents in the queue 100%) - TWA.

Most likely everything is taking its course, only without posting, because the American has promised something for silence among the Kurds.

    The Turks are digging themselves a hole. They think once in the wake of the fight against ISIS they can deal with the PKK, then they will get away with it. Everything would be good in this situation if the Turkish population did not consist of a third of the Kurds, this is essentially a prologue of the civil war.

      This will not be a civil war, but a vendetta! All the Kurds separated by the borders will come together and begin their liberation campaign! And the Turks will choke in blood.

      You are our visionary, I don’t think it’s necessary to be a Wang in order to understand how the Americans dragged their ally into the war. There are more than one stream on the Americans’s sight, they still don’t like Turkey’s independent policy, Erdogan didn’t come to court - he decided that he controls the situation!

      -y e and protest, sir.
      “And what do they demand?”
      -Free love, sir.
      -And someone forbids them?
      No, sir.
      -And why are they yelling?

Assad is bad, Turk is good, ISIS is bad, Hollande is good and hands are itching for a long time, Iran is bad, Iraq is good, Saud is either bad or good ... Damn your leg.

        I agree, it is not possible to understand.

        East is a delicate matter. Arabs and we are completely different mindsets, a way of thinking, traditions, habits and all that. Like the Germans and other nations.
        There is such a concept as honor, conscience, honesty, nobility - and so among different nations, it varies in a wide range and many do not consider it shameful not to have these qualities, and some even have no idea what it is.
        And if, for example, you have rendered a service to someone nobly and honestly, this does not mean that there will be the same answer, most likely you will take it for granted and that's it, and you will wait for a noble, reciprocal act. In no case - this mentality.

        You can just understand. A stable and peaceful Middle East SGA is not needed, just as a calm and prosperous (in the past) Europe is not needed. All of the State Department’s long-term ideas came to fruition: BV in blood, devastation and religious strife with a bunch of refugees, rushing to Europe to destabilize the economy and the entire Geysoyuz as a whole! These are flowers. That's how the berries of Russia would not have got! After all, the State Department is kindling its fires of instability around our perimeter!

    Turkish army launches land operation in Iraq

    which translates as "The Turkish Army will help ISIS in the fight against the Kurds."
    The United States will try to save ISIS and abandoned its Turkish puppets to support it. ISIS plans to defeat Assad’s army in the USA, and until then ISIS cannot be touched.

    Turks still consider Iraq a part of their Ottoman Empire. Borders do not exist for them. But Turkey is a member of NATO. It is clear that the Kurds "seized" the smuggling of ISIS oil from Iraq. The troops moved through the corridor. Just how will these pipes be protected? It’s not just one division that needs to be guarded; you won’t manage with patrols. Or do they intend to exterminate all Iraqi Kurds?
    It is unlikely. But MANPADS Kurds would not hurt. Maybe the Iranians will throw them, or maybe the Syrians? How much do you need to shoot down Turkish fighters so that the Turks change their minds? A dozen, I think, will be enough.

    Turks annihilate Kurds everywhere: Turkey, Syria, Iraq, without knowing what citizens they are.
    Is there a real genocide of the Kurds, and after that, does Turkey try to deny the genocide of the Armenians? The Armenians, though they tried to fly to other countries, but the Kurds have nowhere to go. Turkey is the same fascists.
    Absorbed in the American shit democracy, the world does not see terrible crimes, where they - their concerns for democracy begin and end below the belt - this is the whole field of activity of Western democracy in the pants of sexual minorities.
    The Kurds need help, we must not allow the destruction of an entire nation. The salvation of the Kurds only in the destruction of Isil, then there will be no reason for Turkey to send an army, and today there is no one to help them except God.

    Enough of you whining already, the Turkish army is second to NATO after the United States, the Kurds will not be good. Regarding the Armenian Genocide, recognize the genocide of Nogais, for example, all empires destroyed small nations in their interests, so look in the mirror at the beginning.
