BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:35 P.M.) – Turkey is mulling the launch of a new cross border invasion of northern Syria after failed talks with the U.S. on implementing a safe zone along the border.

On Friday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan continued his aggressive rhetoric, vowing to launch an operation against the Kurdish-led forces in Syria, regardless if a safe zone is implemented.

“Whatever the outcome of safe zone talks with the United States, we will obliterate the east of the River Euphrates”, Erdoğan said, referring to the area controlled by Kurdish-dominated autonomous administrations and militias.

“Those who behave like regional strongmen while trusting in the protection of foreign forces will either abase themselves or go to their graves,” Erdoğan told provincial leaders of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) at Friday’s meeting in Ankara.

Turkey, who considers the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and People’s Protection Units (YPG) as offshoots of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), is looking to take control of the areas held by the Kurdish-led forces, despite the U.S. Coalition’s presence.

This idiot thinks he can outsmart both US and Russia. One wrong move and he’ll end up same as Sadam or Gaddafi. Hope he puts his words where his mouth is so we can open popcorns and enjoy the show…

He’s playing VERY dumb with the EU too. In fact, he thinks he plays each against the other. It’s a game where you ALWAYS end isolated with everybody wanting to skin you. In 2017, during a congress of Turkish mayors, he said : “If we don’t win this war, they’ll impose the Sèvres Treaty on us”… Well, he can’t even handle the Russian, now he wants to fück with both EU and USA… BTW, Saddam wasn’t hanged 😉 The real Saddam Hussein had a fine set of teeth, completely even. The figure paraded in court, as it is easy to… Read more »

LOL. I much doubt the Sultan 2.0 knows what he is talking about. The same rhetoric is used about Cyprus and the acquis communautaire where he is about to collide head on with some EU nations.

And about the Kurds he might run head on into the Empire of the 5 eyes.

Could be an interesting occasion to cancel visas of Turkish expats in the EU… We have enough millions of people unemployed, it’d allow to have pork-kebabs and Erdogan who threatened a refugee crisis on us would end with one. D’you know that this creep pretends we’re in debt to Turkey ‘coz of the 3M Syrian refugees there while : 1.) WE pay the bills for them 2.) There wouldn’t be Syrian refugees if this roach and his friends in the Muslim Brotherhood hadn’t exported 400,000 jihadists in Syria! Erdogan is fücking kidding! One thing is clear for Rojava : 1.)… Read more »

My a$$, they’re in the same bed from the start…
Do you know that, in 2009, Erdogan signed a free-trade/free border-crossing agreement with Assad?
Guess what is the real reason he wanted to have Turkey entering the EU so badly…
We really should better move and fast, they’re into building powerful military-industrial complexes and an axis Ankara/Doha/Tehran…

DBS, Cooperation between Turki & Iran may look good on paper but will never happen on the ground due to the ethnic Shia Sunni Islamic differences. Turki is supporting Jihadis who are ethnically cleansing the Shia towns & holding them as bargaining chips & human shields in their war against SAA. Shias too have been cleansing the Sunnis in Iraq & Syria too. So end of the day the right hand & left hand of Islam are fighting together.

I’m not saying it’d look good… It’s very bad, and it already exists… You miss a SERIOUS point. 1.) Khamenei is the Farsi translator for Sayyid Qutb 2.) Khomeini entered the Muslim Brotherhood in 1938 => Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t gives a fück if you’re Sunni or Shiite, as a Muslim, you’re an useful idiot and canon fodder for their plans. Opposition between sub-sects and factions is not a problem : it allows to deceive external actors into providing weapons to opposing sides which in fact are not really fighting each other but are posing like if they do. The Iranian… Read more »

@Al Habibi, cancel the European Convention on Social and Medical Assistance for Turkey. And the 22 plus odd% of Turk welfare bums will have to go home to their Padisha.

Lets remind the Padisha of Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) and of Article 42 of the Treaty on European Union.

Scientists have observed a buildup of tectonic strain under the Turkish Sea of Marmara, which could soon trigger a massive earthquake. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190708131157.htm A previous study from a few years ago already concluded that a earthquake over 7 on the Richter scale, thanks to the non respect of seismic norms of construction, would collapse about 150,000 houses/building in metro-Constantinople… The normal rhythm of major quakes for this fault is about 1 every 200 years. The latest happened 253 years ago. The longest between quakes, the more energy released when the resistance of counter-forces will break… If it breaks NOW, it’s a… Read more »

There is no agreement with US/FR/UK for Rojava.
We even deployed SAMP/T here… If an Aster-30 goes up, a F-16/F-4 goes down…

And there will be no agreement over Cyprus. This creep is trying to blackmail the EU in Cyprus to invade Rojava. He’ll get NOTHING but sanctions and maybe even missiles if he acts stupid.

Erdolf has to pretend to the AKP herd that he means business….but we all know that he’s a corrupt conman like Trump who pampers his own jihadi proxies inside Syria.

Well, AKP is splitting… And the loss of Constantinople is devastating for the pasha : It puts the opposition in control of Turkey’s economic powerhouse, a city of 15 millions which has been a vital source of patronage for Erdogan’s Islamic conservative AKP for a quarter-century…

You should know that the main actors of the Krystallnacht were the Sturmabteilung (SA)… Some time later, another event named the “Night of the Long Knives” happened… All members of the Sturmabteilung were assassinated by the Schutzstaffel (SS)…

Expel the Jews from France? How could we do without Dassault? Are you crazy? They make us the best fighter jets on Earth! Thanks to Dassault, we don’t even have to fear S-400, we have the only really efficient 5th gen fighter jet and considering the specs I’ve heard about, our 6th gen aircraft could perfectly br hypersonic in the atmosphere and wander in space.
Without teaming with Israel, none of us would have managed to become a nuke power.
When French team with the Jews, they’re unbeatable : they’re the best un fundamental science, we’re the best in applied science.
