  • What a mess... The country was flooded with weapons to topple Assad's regime, millions of Syrians ran for their lives and the west wants neighboring countries to absorb the refugees. Turkey's been home to a couple million and they want them to go back to Syria, but their lands are occupied by Kurds and other factions who took them when people fled.

    From what I understand the PKK (or is it PPK) are strongest along the border because they have their eyes on Kurdish lands within E Turkey to build their own country and the Turks have been at war with them a long time. So it comes down to this: who owns that land? The survivors of the population living there before the war. As much as I want the Kurds to have their own country they cant keep other people's lands.

    I understand the Kurds are allying with Assad and Syrian forces are going to the border. The Turks better back off soon or another war will break out. Apparently Russian troops are also involved trying to deter Turkish advances into Syrian territory. I dont know yet if Trump told Erdogan he could create his buffer zone for refugees to occupy. Kinda ironic its Assad and the Kurds negotiating against Turkey when its actually Turkey fighting for the return of the legitimate owners to those lands. Maybe I'm missing pieces to the puzzle...

    • Where did the Kurds come from if that's not their land, Iraq? Let them go back there.

      • Traditionally NE Syria across N Iraq into NW Iran and north into E Turkey, basically a rough circular location centered around Mt Ararat I think.

        • Yeah. The Kurds are different groups. As I understand, the Kurds in Iraq get along with Turkey. Maybe Iraq doesn't want them.

          • I guess they stay there if Assad and Putin protect them.

                          I don't think that's news.

                            • You ****ing people don't understand the GENIUS of Trump when it comes to russian/turkish/syrian relationship.
                              He has made the perfect noose and you're still navel - gasing


                              ****ing christ.

                              If I was american I would be very very glad to have Trump as a president.

                              If the good of USA was in mind that is

                                This needs to be said.
                                But you americans don't like paying for another man's health.

                                I GET THAT.

                                Europe is different in this regard

                                Still we are talking geopolitics not ****ing health insurance (which is of course important)
