A large convoy of Turkish Army reinforcements arrived to the border-city of Kilis on Monday morning after the recent increase in violence split over from the Syrian province of Aleppo.

This increase in fighting between the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) has prompted the Turkish Army to expand their presence along the Syrian-Turkish border to ensure the safety of civilians living in Kilis and its surrounding area.

However, many observers in northern Aleppo believe that the Turkish Army is actually waiting for the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) to attack the Syrian border-city of Jarabulus.

If the YPG and their allies from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) make a push to Jarabulus; this will without a doubt result in an attack by the Turkish Army, despite the fact the Kurdish forces are fighting Islamic State of terrorists.

US is stiring the pot of Kurdish ambitions to create a puppet state right in the heart of the ME at the expense of neighboring countries just as they did with the Zionist entity. Turkey is not going to let it happen and Syria Iraq and Iran must not also.

I think things are much more complicated in the west than you seem to think!

If they enter Syria, YES. If they bomb it still in Turkey : WW3 : Turkey is a NATO country, all NATO will have to react and Muslim Brotherhood will be very happy to see E.U., the US and Russia nuke each other… I bet they’d sacrifice a turkey without problem for such a result… Then, after, they’ll go conqueer the whole world…
Put f***in’ Erdogan’s Turkey out of NATO, it’s a trojan horse!
