Turkey reiterates its blood lust against the Kurds

CNBC:
Turkey will attack Kurdish fighters in Syria regardless of US withdrawal, foreign minister says


  • Turkey will go ahead with its planned offensive against Kurdish militias in northeastern Syria whether or not the U.S. withdraws its troops from the country, its foreign minister said Thursday.
  • The warning comes after American officials attempted to condition a U.S. troop pullout on a guarantee of safety for its Kurdish partners and Turkish non-aggression.
  • Ankara, which views the U.S.-backed Kurdish militias in Syria as terrorists, has already amassed thousands of Turkish troops along its border with Syria.
There is more.

The Turkish leaders were just not being honest when they told Trump their objective was to finish off ISIS.  Erdogan was a lousy ally in dealing with ISIS, to begin with, and I suspect that he hoped ISIS would defeat the Kurds for him  When the Kurdish fighters allied with the US against ISIS it thwarted Erdogan's scheme. 

As the US withdraws, it should provide the Kurds with weapons to defeat Turkish armor and also provide air cover against attacks.
