Erdogan vows to complete offensive in Syria - BBC News

  • Published on Oct 16, 2019
  • Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to press on with an offensive in Syria until his mission to create a "safe zone" is complete.
    Turkish forces launched an operation to clear Kurdish fighters from northern Syria last week, after US troops allied to them pulled out of the region.
    The Turkish government views one of the main militias as a terrorist group.
    Mr Erdogan has also said he will snub direct talks with the US vice-president when he arrives in Turkey.
    The Turkish president said that Mike Pence and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would only speak to their counterparts and not him directly on Thursday.
    "When Trump comes here, I'll talk to him," he said.

    It's a shame that most of you dont truly know what's going on. Most of you think they are killing kurds. That they are against kurds. No, that's not it. In fact, they have 12 million kurds living in Turkey. Turkey who has has the most Syrian refugees, 2 to 4 million and European counties struggle with thousands. They want to re-settled them to north of Syria, back to their homeland. They want to protect their border, by the pkk, who if you dont know have killed hundreds of Turks in turkey who has also been trained in Syria. They are identified as terrorist by nato, usa, uk and more. Whats wrong with Turkey protecting themselves. They've changed their name yet they are the same group. There is video footage of us officials admitting they are the same. It's not right with replacing terrorist (issis) with another terrorist(pkk). Why do you think trump said they are not Angel's, that they could be worse than isis. The only reason why no one knows about this is lack of media attention tion and how the media does not explain it. They dont explain why turkey thinks they are terrorist or who else thinks they are territory. Or how they train children to train soldiers or how they attack from holy buildings. Now you tell me, is turkey still doing wrong.

    Oh my god... the whole thing happened all because trump poorly communicated with erdogan... He gave him a ear full of his rambling Trump nonsense we all know from his campaign rallies and now thats caused a tragic global incident. All because Trump is not a diplomat and there are no diplomats around him. He ran them all off.

    THIS is what does NOT make sense, logic, reason, and sanity unless of course the real end objective is to occupy. Turkey has said they are forming a buffer zone of 480km ( 300 miles ) long and 30km ( 20 miles ) deep, into Syria, along its southern border with Syria. They also say that once the 4 million or so Syrian refugees in Turkey are settled in this buffer zone, they will provide them with houses, schools, electricity, water, health, etc while at the same time claiming that they currently are not receiving enough outside funding to cover all the expenses of the refugees currently in Turkey. This is hypocrisy unless the goal is occupancy.
    Doing so gets Turkey that much closer to eastern Syria oil fields. This Turkish leader has said, on occasion, that this was territory stolen during the regression of the Ottoman empire. Unlike any leader Turkey has had since it was formed in 1923, after the collapse of the Ottoman empire, this leader is the first to surface as neo-Ottoman.

    What will Turkey's tyrant do when he confronts Russian forces on his border ? The Russians, Syrian forces, and Kurds have struck a deal to protect Syria's northern territory. This is what Putin had wanted all along - get U.S. troops out of that region so that he could move in, and Turkey's tyrant became the fall guy.

    Turkey has been fighting with the terrorists only. The PKK-YPG-PYD are terrorist groups.And terrorist groups have killed 40,000 people since 1984.
