    • According that pre-purges, Turkish army scored a 1.16:1 kill ratio against PKK and now PKK scores 5:1, YPG being much more heavily armed, well, they may enter, but they’ll soon come back home in body bags… Now go on like this and if YPG didn’t teamed with PKK, it could change as they’re in the same ideology… Have fun in Turkey if it happens as Turkey may also discover asymmetrical warfare and now, the really nasty trick to do? Opening a corridor to have ISIS flee Syria and Iraq into Turkey…
      There are what? 20-25M Kurds into Turkey? If all go out in the street, it’ll be harder to genocide them than 1.5M Armenians.
      Erdogan is really a TOTAL MORON : he had a democratic country, prosperous and stable, PKK was in ceasefire mood for years and big money was made from tourism. Now he has the blood of hundreds of thousands on his hands, economy is dead-spiraling down and everybody is hoping some NATO-country leader having the guts to send a cruise missile entering the window of his office despite it’d be an international scandal.
