BAGHDAD, IRAQ (11:15 A.M.) – The Spokesperson for the Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve Council, Lt. Colonel John L. Dorrian, stated on Wednesday that the Turkish Army in northern Iraq is not part the coalition against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) inside the country.

Furthermore, Lt. Colonel Dorrian went as far as to label the Turkish Army’s incursion into northern Iraq as an “illegal” action that was permitted by the Iraqi government.

“The Turkish Army on Iraqi soil is illegal and has not entered the country with the official permission of the Iraqi government. Several countries that are part of the International Coalition Forces are in Iraq due to the permission of the Iraqi Government. These countries support the Iraqi Army in the fight against ISIS,” Lt. Colonel Dorrian added.

This statement was released by the official media wing of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) on Wednesday; its authenticity was denied by the Daily Sabah.

Lt.Colonel Dorrian Said “The Turkish army on Iraqi soil is ILLEGAL and has NOT Entered the country with the Official permission of the Iraqi Government”.

And Kerry himself said it was illegal a few days ago… Well, Syrian state can sue in front of US civil court and ask serious compensations for the 300bln$ damages and 300k lives lost, so let’s say about 1 to 2 trillions…
Now why do they do this? What a question! Because they… can…

Turkish groundtroops are certainly not invited by Assad and Baads. But its fine they fight ISIS from and inside their own country – fx by better bordercontrol. US are limited well accepted, because they fight ISIS and help Kurds with it very much.

You can see Palmyra of yesterday. ISIS are still very much alive.

About a week ago Assad very clear told, that he prefered kurds in the borderzone compared to Turks. And Assad certainly not prefare FSA.

US don’t need to import oil anymore since 2012. Many other countries could stop too… Get infos on shale gas fracing or shale gas reserves, I promise you to be puzzled. Guess why oil prices have fallen to less than the 3rd they were 7 years ago. Now, we’re near the 1981/82 price per barrel!

Yes, USA is inveted by the Iraqian Goverment and Iraqi Kurdistan – And Iragi kurdistand is an independent autonomy of Iraq since 2004.

That the big diffrence to Syria. Here its the Russian mob, which are inveted, but it more like an OK that US fights ISIS, because ISIS fights Assads.

It’s high time Erdogan gets talked to as he deserves. My respects to Lt.Col. Dorrian! Without despicable persons like Kerry, Killary etc, if they were given free hand, the US militaries would have terminated both Qaeda and Daesh for long. Many would be very surprised if they knew how the yankee militaries think. Let’s say that if Putin was running for prez in the US, they’ll vote for him!

No, they wouldt. Obama was voted in be many reasons, but an important thing for us was and are, that US wont invade other countries(could have been syria) and they come and help if invited(Irag) and partly Kurds in syria. But the countries has to deliever, what they can, that means they are trained and armed and pay,what they can. Think Syria is about same thing.
