          and it’s designed for this, the task is to crush ISIS with the hands of the Kurds, to undermine the situation in Turkey so that Erdogan no longer kicks at the USA, but who knows the owner of the house, who the dog is in the kennel and who feeds, and if something goes off with a stick.

            Most likely, the ultimate goal of the Americans will be the creation of Kurdish autonomy in order to strengthen its influence in the Middle East and control oil fields in these territories.

              The Americans need to gain control over the situation, and apart from the Kurds, they have no one to rely on.
              So they threw (as always, when it is profitable for them) their allies hoaxes to our great pleasure and to the fury of Erdogan.
              Turkey would not be a regional superpower, but it could have been if it had not been for the Yankees. And control of our oil would also have received an independent arms supply channel and political support and a market. Everything pro ... fukali, like the same faithful little brothers Bulgarians.
              There will be a good lesson for the future for everyone else ... Although they don’t teach such lessons from the Second World War ...

                  I would say Americans are professionals in the type of "controlled" chaos!

                  This is a fact.

                  First, Americans muddied the water, sent troops - a country in chaos.
                  As a result, they overthrow Saddam.
                  It seems that the country at the feet of America.
                  But, suddenly out of nowhere ISIS appears - the country is in chaos.
                  It would seem that you are helping the appointed government of Iraq!
                  But it was not there!
                  Need chaos!
                  Therefore, Kurds and Turks appear in the arena (in Iraq).
                  Turks are fighting with the Kurds, Kurds are fighting with ISIS, the Iraqi military is also in a batch against everyone.
                  Americans really rule chaos for many years.
                  It's only the beginning.
                  And under Saddam there was a Country! And everyone got along until the revolution from outside the democrats brought.
                  They have contributed to the relationship between the peoples of Iraq.

            Yesterday they showed the circus how the Swiss non-conquered rangers teach Afghan mountain shooters. I especially liked the imitation of shooting with a scream, interrupting it with the vibration of the palm near the lips. This is so that the cartridges do not spend.

                I don’t argue with you, the Swiss were once excellent soldiers and now they are guarding the Vatican, but it’s not a thing to teach the Afghans about mountain war, it’s nothing to smile, Afghanistan has never been able to conquer, the brave Americans think that they won, but they control only its bases, where opium plantations sit, the president of Afghanistan controls only his wife’s bedroom in the presidential palace, and the real power belongs to the local bays, which have their own army.

        Well, we know perfectly well how the Americans know how to train "militias": until now, 5 of their "graduates" are fighting IS. smile Kurds need to try to avoid their "help" in learning. Let the equipment be supplied - that's enough for them!

        .Erdogan pisses in boiling water.

        One question, why? Erdogan will not like this, an incomprehensible situation.
        It's simple. Peshmerga does not fight the Turks. Moreover, although this fact has never been widely advertised, the Iraqi Kurds are trained by the Turkish military (since 2011). Peshmerga is subordinate to Barzani, and he, as you know, is Erdogashka’s partner in the oil business .. ..Although this, of course, is temporary ...

        He doesn’t write anything ...

        Back in the summer of 14, the Peshmerga detachments expropriated Kirkuk. And since then, oil from this field has been quietly pumped through a pipeline, including through the territory controlled by ISIS, to Turkey, to the port of Ceyhan.

        The Americans, ExxonMobil and Chevron Corporation are covering this scheme of theft of Iraqi oil.

    It seems that the Americans are going to drain Turkey, which is called not washing in such a way. They will create Kurdistan from the fragments of Syria and Iraq and they will incite Turkey. They add fuel to the bw. NATO seems to be disengaging from Turkey. So we are waiting for the Turks reaction. We would be quiet, but Erdogan is far away He went in and gave a back death to him like that.

      That's for sure - long ago it was. And then the Swiss introduced the new product - they attacked not with a chain, but with columns. So it’s easier to break through the defense, and you can fight off cavalry. At one time, the Swiss made a decisive contribution to the death of the Duke of Burgundy Karl the Bold ...

    Friendship forever ... Before leaving, the instructor asked the Kurds what

    "from whom?" - "well, from the Jews who captured him ..."
