    Why we need war? Why we dont we just want a freedom? Why?

  • GreeKurd Channel

    The Kurds saved the world from ISIS. Now SAVE THE KURDS from Turkey!
    These brave Kurdish men and women, who were victorious over Isis, are heroes. The world admires the Kurds for their tremendous efforts and sacrifices. Over 11,000 Syrian Kurds have been killed and wounded in the battle against Isis in Syria. The international community must act now and watch over the war crimes that have been committed against the Kurds!!! Stand up for Rojava!!!
    Long Live ROJAVA!!!! ✌️❤️🌼💚✌️

  • GreeKurd Channel

    Why? because Kurds are peaceful people who have over the years lost more than 11,000 soldiers, both men and women who died fighting against the Islamic State, that's why! because they have protected all the minorities from Isis and was the key force in defeating Isis. That is why Turkey is launching an attack on these brave Kurdish men and women who fought alongside the US to ensure peace and stability in Syria. We have seen war crimes committed against the Kurds by Turkish troops against the Kurds, we have seen innocent people die, women and children. We have heard that the UN has accused Turkey of the use of illegal weapons (chemical weapons) such as white phosphorous against civilians. Over 300 000 people have been displaced and many have been killed during Turkey's offensive in NE Syria. Because Trump abandons the Kurds to be slaughtered by Turkey, backstabbing the Kurds... THAT IS WHY!

    They would fight the Turkish military in their dreams! Just an excuse to threat dillusional Europe with releasing isis. If they want peace then they remove the pkk officials in their chain of command, give up arms and announce pkk and its idiology as radical terrorists.

    5 steps to become new age conquer
    Step 1: Name the project something none threatening "Operation Peace Spring"
    Step 2: Voice your concers about the dangers of sharing border with potential terrorist
    Step 3: Demand a safe zone too feel safe from all the bad people at the borders
    Step 4: Start peacefully bombing any inhabited location inside the safe zone to clear safe zone from any living thing
    Step 5: Use safe zone to fill with new living things and hope original occupants wont return
    PS: Note that safe zone can be extended to your liking in case you require more space

      Otto Günsche. very true. but i think there is more to this. the sudden pullout was so unexpected even by his supporters. maybe there is truth to the kushner story. what do you think? either way trump has disappointed his supporters and ruined american credibility.

    30 million Kurdish in the world 20 million choose to live in Turkey for a reason. Kurds are our brothers and sisters. Not PYD YPG or PKK.
    Who ever supports them is the enemy to Turks.
    Time is ticking. Everyone should pray things will work accordingly before Turks looses the head.

    You have to correct the title. TURKISH military force just attactk to ypg which is the biggest supporter of pkk. And pkk is terrorist group for europe and usa. So how you use this title for TURKİSH military force's attack? The answer is very simple. Because europe and usa are the another biggest supporter of terrorist group which is pkk. Got it? If you dont , absolutely you are imbecile. :)

    Turkey is not invading Syria. Turkey is securing the places that are invaded and making them liveable. If you are not seeing the real game you are really stupid. Middle east is the playground of imperialistic countries. PYD or other terror organizations are the toys of these imperialistic countries.
    (USA Russia). They use terror organizations for their benefits (petrol reservations) and USA legitimates PYD as a Kurdish government. Don't believe this. I have many Kurdish friends and relatives in Turkey that are against PYD and we are very close. In the east Anatolia, there are many Kurdish families. The extension of PYD, the PKK abducts children from these families and manipulates these children's minds and raises these children as militants. The families of these children cry in front of the Turkish government buildings. They suffer from PKK. They don't want their children to be taken by PKK. Turkey rescues these children and brings back to their families. All in all my point is that Turkey is not against Kurds. Kurds are our brothers and sisters. We don't discriminate them. We are against PKK and PYG. The USA shows these terror organizations as governments, but in fact, they are not. They kill babies. They rape women. They are not innocent like it is told. I have a second point. My second point is about Syrian refugees. In media, it is being told that Turkey discriminates the Syrian refugees. This is false too. In Turkey, these refugees have more rights than us. For example, they have the privilege in hospitals. They are being protected by the government. Turkey is looking after them. There are just 3 million registered refugees, but there are also unregistered ones as many as the registered. Syrian Refuge problem is not just Turkey's problem. It is the problem of the whole of Europe, but just Turkey is trying to solve this. I have said that Turkey is not invading Syria. I have said this because other countries are blaming Turkey for killing innocent Kurds(PYD) in Syria. We are not killing innocent Kurds. We are killing the monster, inhuman, terrorists to secure those places and make those places liveable. We place the Syrian refugees there. Those places are not belonging to the terror organization PYD. They belong to the Syrians and we give the belongings to their owners. Because our priminister can't represent us well , I don't want anbody to have a wrong opinion about this operation . I am a first hand source. Don't just believe the news you listen.

    Why? Because USA, France, Germany armed YPG / PKK with thousands of trucks load heavy arms and positioned all towards Turkey alongside the border. French company Lafarge built a cement factory and engineered YPG militia to dig many concrete tunnels under the border right into Turkish side. And inevitably Turkey bombed and pushed out YPG / PKK rats.. not Kurds.
    After any fight if Turks prevailed same scenario played by Western media; Lets cry.. Barbar Turks killing innocent angels !!
    Go get lost with your lies and devilish plans. Take your bloody capitalist fingers away from Middle East people.
