Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has called on President-elect Donald Trump to stop supporting the Democratic Union Party (PYD) in Syria which comprises mostly of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

“The world talks about Daesh (ISIS) but it does not fight it. It is only Turkey that fights against Daesh. The United States and others do nothing. They just supply the PYD with weapons,” said Yildirim on 3 January, in a weekly parliamentary address to his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) members, as quoted by Turkish newspaper Hurriyet.

“What we expect from the new administration is to bring an end to this shame,” Yildirim said, referring to Trump, who will take over from President Barack Obama on 20 January.

“We do not hold the new administration responsible for this situation, because it was the achievement of the Obama administration,” he added.

Despite Yildirim’s claims that Turkey is the only fighting force against ISIS, the Syrian Army continue to advance in Palmyra to retake the city from the terrorist group.

And so the Turkish regime will be able to slaughter the Kurds in Syria as they already do into Turkey…
We should highly consider providing truck mounted CIWS, Iron Beam and Aster-15 SAMs to YPG to make sure they can intercept Turkish shelling and if necessary their aircraft…

“It is only Turkey that fights against Daesh”
=> Said Dr.Frankenstein about his creature…
Seriously, they’re just INVADING Syria after having greatly contributed destroying about the half of the country.
Balkanisation of Turkey should be considered…

youre absolutely right; the Erdolf regime (a subversive threat to my country, too, with a terrorist network of 6k+ secret service agents and 1k+ radical regime paid imams and insolent paroles all over) has to be stopped, Turkey has left the track of peaceful integration, and should be fought with any appropriate means: they are a threat to our whole hemisphere.

Well, now their MIT intelligence service is indicted for terrorism in France after having assassinated 3 persons. There is also a suing in Germany for 2 murder attempts…
It may become interesting soon as it’s very likely to end with MIT on the EU terror list but as it’s a state owned service, things may begin to go very bad for Turkey’s international relations…

Turkey also wants Russia to put pressure on Hezbollah militia to get them out of Syria :

Now, guess who wants Turkey to get out of Syria and stop interfering Syria’s internal affairs?

Watch a politician from #Turkey calls to wipe #ISIS-held al-Bab & its civilians off the map & urges #Russia & #Iran to help them

Note : about half of al-Bab population is… Kurd!

Actually, what the UN should do is recognize a Kurdish state and send in a peacekeeping force to protect them from Turkey. Kurds in Syria, Iraq, and Iran should be given land along the northern borders of each that spans these countries’ borders to form a contiguous state/federation.

More than half of the Kurds are in Turkey : 25M on 40M…
Begin by sending an UN force into Turkey!
Mofo Erdogan is simply bombing Kurdish cities in secrecy and then sends bulldozers to level what remains!

It may depend on who manages to pay Flynn last before the music stops … he naturally hates Muslim Brotherhood Kapo Tayyip but has also shown fondness for Turkish lobbyist cash:

“The world talks about Daesh (ISIS) but it does not fight it. It is only Turkey that fights against Daesh” – said a genocidal maniac who supports daesh. Nice try, loser.
