    The latest escalations isnt that suprising to be honest.

    As the Turks have Their agenda its now going to be, hopefully coordinated with the Syrians fight against this ISIS groups and right now when there is an end in sight, for all parts incl Kurds, we can hope some of them thinks abit further than than their own nouses, and into the future of the region and its people.

    Whats is the consern is what the Imperial banana republics UssA will do to protect their assets on the ground, aka the Merc army and so on the so called ISIS, where everything is conviniently morphed to be about Kurds, of course, and our MSM is white washing ISIS the happy head chopping moderates, whom even showed in an Youtube video, an 12 year old Palestinian boy.
    That take humans to such debts of evil.
    I really dont know, its beyond belife.
    Some silver coins, is that all, petty greed and power tripping, from its leaders and an certaty of never be punished, the morale will die.
    It always do. no war is good, war is always bad.

    What is more supricing is the Golan hights, to be honest, and for the entrie region, may wisdom penetrate the brains in Saudi-arabia, and may the People burn down the forst that protects the little klick of top rats aka the Kings in those little private prisons called states, and hang them.
    And chase the rest out and take the land back.

    Do it, and within an week, the world will be born again.
    When the cackles of the past is gone, the future is wide open.

    The foolish Putin partially enabled the Turkish invasion of Northeastern Syria, because of his ill-advised thaw with the unrepentant, unreformed, aggressive regime of the Islamist dictator Erdogan.
