    Even Turkish backed rebels have also been trained by US and allies. So let all these scums fight and die.Rest will be taken care by SAA and Russia

    • Jens Holm

      bork-bork.

      Kurds didnt invent their own country. Now they are a scape-got for – everybody. Cheep.

      • Spunkyhunk

        What happened to your fake “humanitarianism” about civilian casualties that you displayed when Syrian and Russian planes bombed your terrorist friends’ Aleppo hideouts, you jihadi and Erdogan-supporting scumbag?

  • Escapos

    Geneva?

  • cheetah88

    hurting for stories lately?

    • VGA

      This doesn’t look story-worthy to you?

      • cheetah88

        no. a few punches in a war zone. so what.

        • Gabriel Hollows

          Butthurt Kurd detected.

          • cheetah88

            i despise the kurds, moron.

        • Carol Davidek-Waller

          So what are the Geneva Conventions and International Law. It’s a crime.

          • Spunkyhunk

            These jackasses don’t give a shit about international law or anything. These are terrorist-supporting CIA propagandists. When their terrorist friends are getting whacked, they start a hue-and-cry about nonexistent civilian casualties. The Russians and Syrians should remember that the next time they’re bombing terrorist-held areas and there’s a fake humanitarian outcry about “hospitals being bombed”.

          • Carol Davidek-Waller

            They may not care now but those kinds of crimes have no statute of limitations and universal jurisdiction. It’s only a matter of time.

          • cheetah88

            better than getting shot or burned up.

          • Carol Davidek-Waller

            Torture is a crime. There are laws governing the treatment of prisoners of war.

          • cheetah88

            punching someone is torture? whatever

          • Carol Davidek-Waller

            Once a person becomes a prisoner of war, they have rights and their captors have responsibilities. “punching someone” and torture (specifically mentioned in the headlines) violates both the rights of prisoners and is a war crime on the part of the captors. Read the Geneva Conventions. They are not quaint. They are both domestic and international law. There is no statute of limitations on these sorts of crimes and jurisdiction is everywhere.

    • Spunkyhunk

      Fuck you, jihadi-supporting piece of shit.

      • cheetah88

        fuck YOU! i support Assad and am against the jihadi retards. the kurds are bad for Syria, so i am against them too. if you are too stupid too see what happened to the Balkans then go ahead and keep calling people names. this is a multi-faceted war and it is not black and white. the jihadists are bad, so are the kurds.

  • Gabriel Hollows

    Dear Kurds,

    This is the future you chose.

    • Mariwan bek

      Dear Hollow,
      Kurds rarely get captured. These are the Arab fighters within the sdf who have been taken prisoners. Any way.
      Kurds have no choice but to fight for freedom. That’s something we do not hesitate about.
      Live free or die for freedom… that’s our philosophy.

      • Mahmoud Larfi

        I support Kurdish cause and admire their everlasting fight for freedom… but too bad they got too cocky, too soon on this one just because they thought the US will treat them as an all time ally. US have no allies, they only got vassals and disposable dogsbodies.

      • Gabriel Hollows

        Actually, you will die for nothing. The US has finished using you, and now you’re being discarded. It’s just a matter of time now, Erdorgan will be merciless. How tragic, but it’s what you get for betraying Assad.

        Hell is forever.

        • Jens Holm

          You dont read, what Marion just wrote. Arabs fighting is also locals west of Eufrat just trown ISIS out. So how can Turks and FSA do the same.

        • Mariwan bek

          Gabriel, I don’t mind if you marry to assad’s regime forever. But be sure with or without Americans we keep fighting for freedom and freedom is our only fiance.
          Man/woman can only die once.
          Man/woman cannot die twice, unless he/ she loses his/her freedom and dignity.
          We choose to die with dignity.

        • Spunkyhunk

          There is no “hell”, idiot.

    • Spunkyhunk

      Fuck you, jihadist scumbag.

  • Juan

    i dont understand how the international community still accepts any move from turkey…if there is something to do,then it would be to stop turkey from making trouble, or it would be really hard in the future for those helping syria to get out of it’s mess

    • Jens Holm

      Well first Turks are not the only one making trouble. 2: Until now Kurds as a whole in Syria as well as in Iraq has behaved very bright and clever being as neutral as possible in both countries wishing better rights inside “assad Syria” and same kind – but a little mpore of the inside Iraq. 3) Its also very understable they take their area back from ISIS criminal Khaifat.

      The problem for them are, when they are out of their teritories(which have other small minorities in it) and they take arab territories. Those they can never keep – unless Assads is gone or very week.

      Thats where the final BANG comes from the Turks. They already think Kurds as well as in turkey(20 mio. are too big and should stay as sekend class citicens) and BELOW them if the are not BELOW Assad and Bagdad shias.

      Many western being there is bound by Nato in mucether oats – meaning – if ANY member is in dager – or says so – the ultimate card is to give all ultimatative help. Turks say they are and are given that help – not matter what.

      But the rest of the world has many other problems – ISIS/Kaida terror and refugees. And we pay turks for keeping refugees not commin to europe and give much other humanitarian help.

      There the kurds are in the middle. But YPG brougt them there.

      The concrite wall turks are boulding and dividing turks are also for keeping refugees out – and of course the usual turkkish thinking about PKK. Turks dont reduce the PKK by that. 20 mio. kurds are inside turkey.

      A lot of nations incl. UN and EU has told them how to handle this different giving kurds normal human rights. But the opposite has hapepend slowly the last 11 years by Erdoagan and AKP.

      Hope You understand it like a puzzle, where everything is moving and nothing fit 100%.

      I read a lot, but still dont understand all of it. There is another gab – Im a western, and there are sometimes big diffrences in the way of brain use. By that Im not local too.

      Im only involved in our troops are there and we give humanitarium help.

      Think we shpuldnt be there at all. But its interesting and also terrible, so I read and write about and try to learn.

      • Juan

        well, i hope kurds are being clever, because i dont want to watch a long term second citizen policy anywhere. this should be over in our civilization today(and hope im a part of the civilization and not just a guest worker or a raw material seller!!) . To be honest i stand with YPG because of the massacres and the whole history of middle east..kurds are making trouble, but they want an independent state and they have been treated really not equally in those countries, but order should be done from the international communtiy if its WANTED,starting from israel’s policy and even iran’s shia belt to US expanison in Oil regions, sure we are leaving USA doing what they want and WESTERNS still using their brain correctly and manipulating the rest to not use their brains, but someday it would be different and ppl will eventually be accepted and their rights would exist, just like im writing in english now,and im a kurd!!! WESTERN!!! its not that hard to change, when u can just stand up and talk just like Jesus did, but having a weapon pointed at u and being a hostage is a miserable situation and i do agree that everything is moving and nothing fit 100%.

  • Terrorist torturing Terrorist. Turks have been trained by Mi6 CIA Mossad for decades.
    Putin was dead wrong to prop up the Islamist-Extremist-Sunni in Turkey during The Peoples Revolution against the corrupt dictator of the Turkish-Empire.

  • Mariwan bek

    Turkey is digging it’s grave by entering rojava. Time will prove my words.

    • farplay

      1st there is no Rojava.
      2nd in dreamed territory of Rojava the Kurds present only 40% of population
      3rd you got weapons from americans and russians. without them you are nothing.
      4th you make ethnic cleaningy. you are same as Hitlers germany. you do not deserve oen country. you are as bas as turkeys.

      • Lets examine all of the facts to better understand what side the Rothschild’s and George Soros tribe has been on…

      • Mariwan bek

        1st you can deny whatever you wish to in your mind. But the reality is touchable by all. If I am wrong go and check out your claim on the ground in rojava.
        2. Despite the falseness of your claim, there’s no problem at all. Turks make up 12% of the population of Turkey but rule the country for centuries. Alawites population in Syria 19% but rule the country for decades. Sunni population in Bahrain 20% but rule the country for decades. …etc.
        3rd can you bravely and honestly ( I doubt it) tell us your country’s name and prove that you are not getting weapons and even airplanes from the US and/or Russia? Cannot even be compared.
        4. You can say whatever you want but you and your masters have no guts to find a piece of document.

      • Jens Holm

        Of course there is a Rojava if they believe so. Looking at a map a united Syria dont exist at all – anymore. Assad comming with his revenge “Uniting” rebels-nusra or/and the kurds again.

        Might be a new Turkish colony again. seems so.

    Someone should f…K Caliph of terrorists Erdogan and his terrorists of Al-Qaeda groups!
