      Unless you have means to receive resupply, like Israel did in 1948, its probably not smart to start your path to independence when completely surrounded by hostile states. And pissing them off!

        Much more difficult to resupply if you’re a landlocked country.

          USA and Israel are resupplying with air supply, but Turks and Russians could place a no fly zone over the new US puppet, after the rest of Isis is driven off to mama Langley and papa Pentagon.

            Plus…hopefully the Russian base in Deir Ezzor can be fully operational with a few S-400 batteries for protection…when these americunt/jhouish resupply planes comes in…

          My point exactly.

        Yep, only 4 countries can make that decision and the US is not one of them. They could unless the US decides to give them Alaska they can be included on that discussion on …. Alaska. But then again it would include other countries like Canada and Russia another lose lose situation for the US.

      illegitimate entities are always in the lose lose situation – it is a matter of how deep in hell they go – the only win will be entry to hell

      Why was it ok for Europeans to occupy North America, many parts of
      Africa ( most notably South), Australia and PALESTINE ( Yes those
      European Jews are White) BUT NOT ok for the Kurds to do the same in an
      area of their choice ???

      I am not saying I agree but to disagree with the Kurds you must also disagree with Europeans AND those European JEWS ! One must be CONISTENT

      I do, by the way, disagree with anyone or group OCCUPYING another land and claiming it

      It is called INVASION not settlement

    If the Zionists don’t back down, there WILL be all out war and they WILL lose. It, fortunately will mean the END of ISRAEL, THANKFULLY and that is the GOOD part.

    The terrible part will be DEVASTATION for mankind , if Israel is stupid enough to use their Nukes. because NUKES will come back to them, also
