Street signs in front of the US embassy in Ankara were renamed to ‘Olive Branch street’ on Monday, after the name of the Turkish military operations against Kurdish fighters in Afrin.

The move is reportedly seen as a reaction against US support for Syrian Kurdish militia in the region.

Despite international outrage, Turkey has continued with ‘Olive Branch’ operations and plans for extended operations in Idlib province.

Turkey views the YPG, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

And Washington DC renamed Russian embassy’s Wisconsin St. to Boris Nemtsov St. (Putin’s opponent killed right outside the Kremlin while having a “Happy Night” with an Ukrainian woman).
U.S.A. always spearhead the world’s trends (that is: when it comes at acting as sore loosers).

Turkey is covering itself with ridicule, but it’ll be even more ridiculous when Turkish operation will end by a fiasco.
