Turkey Threatens To Strike US Troops Embedded With Kurdish Militias In Syria

This Tuesday, March 7, 2017 frame grab from video provided by Arab 24 network, shows U.S. forces patrol on the outskirts of the Syrian town, Manbij, a flashpoint between Turkish troops and allied Syrian fighters and U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters, in al-Asaliyah village, Aleppo province, Syria. (Arab 24 network, via AP)

Ilnur Cevik, a senior aide to Turkish President Recep Erdogan, suggested Wednesday that US troops could be targeted by Turkish forces alongside Kurdish militias in Syria.

Cevik said that U.S. forces embedded with members of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) are in danger of being hit by Turkish forces patrolling the Syrian-Turkish border.

If Kurdish militais “go too far, our forces would not care if American armor is there, whether armored carriers are there,” Cevik said during an interview on Turkish radio station CRI TURK Wednesday. “All of a sudden, by accident, a few rockets can hit them,” he said, referring to US forces.

Then, he once again clarified that  US military advisers or artillery positions would be in danger from Turkish warplanes, if they continued to support YPG forces in northern Syria.

    please make turkey shoot a place where there are us russian iranian iraki kurdish syrian and nato memebers soldiers all at once .

    • BL

      Zionist rat alert

      • Ilies Bekhtaoui

        you miss understood me i meant that if they shoot all this people at once turkey is fucked .

  • John Brown

    Yes exactly as I predicted. Once Turkey attacks the Kurds and US troops with them, the Yilon plan will be stopped and Turkey will leave NATO and ally with Russia China and Iran, the turkey gets the S-400.

    • Concrete Mike

      It appears to be heading that way, Let’s wait and see if Turkey can résiste EU and US pressure, Covert or overt, intersting Times.

      Regardless if Turkey changes sides or not, they must still bé held accountable for all thé support they gave to Isis and Al nusra. They were involved in other shenaningans also that we dont need to get into now.
      What they did to Syria is à crime of thé highest order, and I Will never forgive Them for that. I’m also not à fan of thé ismlamification ( à made Up Word i know lol) of There secular goverment does not sit Well with me at all.

      Cheers Friend!!

      • John Brown

        Mike I agree with you but you must understand the enemy of my enemy is my friend. As I predicted Turkey has just started and will conduct a
        large air war bombing campaign against the Kurdish armed forces in Syria and
        Iraq and then invade (even if it means war with the USSA and its master Israel)
        enough to draw Kurdish forces to the Turkish border so the SAA can take the
        rest of Syria and Iraqi forces can take the rest of Iraq.
        I bet this is part of a secret and brilliant Russian, Turkish, Syrian,
        Iraqi, Iranian and Chinese plan. That is when Turkey gets the S-400 when they leave NATO. They sign the contract for the S-400 now, so that Russia can supply them and say it is not in violation of any future US or EU arms embargo against
        Turkey when Turkey leaves NATO and declares war on the Kurds, just like Russia has done when supplying Syria with arms. Russia should also sell the S-400 to Iran. This S-400 deal also lets Turkey know Russia, China, Iran Syria and Iraq will support Turkey militarily if Israel and its slave vassals the USA and or
        NATO attack Turkey.

        This will mean the total defeat of Israel’s Yilon plan for greater Israel and maybe the end of the Zionist NATO Pact and the Zionist EU. Research the Yilon plan and you will see to means the total destruction of Turkey and many other states to be replaced by a greater Israel, with a large percentage of Turkey’s population to be exterminated. Turkey must attack the Kurds and side with Russia, Syria etc or it will be destroyed by Israel and the USA.
        Don’t forget those MOSSAD death squads tried to kill Erdogan last summer in
        the attempted Israeli / Rothschild, Soros coup and Russia / Putin saved his
        life. Erdogan has been Russia’s secret ally ever since.

        • mhtsaropinigitakis

          you said the same bullshit some days ago…russians did not help erdog in no way…they are fatal enemies

          • Free man

            I’m with you on the bullshit thing.

          • John Brown

            We shall see if it is bullshit or not. Russia, Syria and Iran just signed a major agreement today with Turkey that will help the SAA. Turkey has already attacked the Kurds in Iraq and eastern Syria as I predicted and says it will
            attack the USA as well if the US tries to protect the Kurds, so I am right on
            that as well. Just wait for the major Turkish offensive against the Kurds in
            eastern Syria and northern Iraq. So far I am 100% right and you are 100% wrong.
            Turkey will do as l have said and also pull out of NATO etc and join the EEU by the end of 2017 or early 2018. Russia said today it will also start work on the Turk stream pipeline and have it done very soon as Turkey will be need and be totally dependent on Russian gas once turkey pulls out of NATA and confronts the US militarily and then gets the S-400 with an Eu USA economic blockade, which Russia China and Iran will break up. Turkey must do these things or it and Erdogan will be destroyed / killed as part of the Yilon plan.

            Putin is thinking like Abraham Lincoln did. Lincoln said the best way to get rid of an enemy is to turn them into a friend and Putin is doing that with Turkey. I think Putin will do it with Afghanistan and the Taliban as well.

          • mhtsaropinigitakis

            sounds like wishfull thinking…id like to see turkey attacking and geting destroyed soon but i feel they are big chickenshiets and will never attck

          • John Brown

            So far its not wishful thinking its all fact. If turkey does it they will win as they will be supported militarily and economically by Russia, China Syria, Iran and Iraq. It will be a huge loss for the Zionist empire and probably the end of the NATO pact and the Zionist EU and the total defeat of the Yilon plan. Maybe the end of the Zionist federal reserve dollar and the total collapse of the USSA economy as well.

          • Bill Wilson

            The only thing Turkey would win will be lots of votes at the UN to place economic and trade sanctions on the country.

          • Thegr8rambino

            Why was turkey supporting Trumps missile strike on Syria then? Calling for Assad to go?

          • John Brown

            Talk means nothing actions count. Do you have a brain? Get
            up of your lazy butt, stop watching the idiot box, do some research on the
            internet and in libraries and think for yourself. If you listen to the lying Zionist T.V, the empire is peaceful is full of peace yet the empire has attacked Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Ethiopia etc. etc. The empire says Kim Jung Un is a murdering mad man. He is no angel but he is no murdering war monger and he is far from mad man. Obama and Bush are the murderers as they have killed millions and invaded numerous countries making Hitler look like a wimp in comparison. Countries that never did anything to the USSA and the empire and now the empire is on the verge of exterminating
            more them 10 million Yemenis in a Soviet, Yagoda, Jewish, chicka artificial famine as they did in the Ukraine in the 1920s. TV has a total news blackout on it.

            Why? I know why do you?

          • Thegr8rambino

            Yes I have a brain, and its probably in much better shape than yours. I already knew all of what you said, I really didnt need that book you wrote there, but you seem to be avoiding and dancing around my question. So tell me, I want to hear it from you. Or maybe you don’t know?

          • John Brown

            I guess you have never heard of the element of surprise in military terms or at all. For example the criminal does not tell you when they are going to come to rob your house do they??? They also want to have an alliby just in case they are suspected. Like the USSA says to Libya they only want peace (when in fact they want war because this is what their master Israel wants for Libya) give up your nuclear program and we will leave you alone, peace treaty, and then they attack. Same with Turkey let the empire think you may still be with them when you are getting ready to attack and also postpone the financial attack and war the empire will launch against Turkey once it is clear it has sided with Russia to leave NATO etc. The financial attack can be every bit as lethal as a physical war. Then the USSA and its slave master Israel won’t be sure of the back stab (Turkey freeing itself from slavery to become an independent, free and soverign state.

          • Barba_Papa

            Personally I wish no harm would come to Turkey, just a single guided bomb straight into Crazy Erdogan’s private bedroom. I know quite a few Turks who are really nice people and they don’t deserve this idiot wrecking their country.

          • Bill Wilson

            It was a silly proposal that the extremists will promptly reject since it requires them to disarm.

          • PZIVJ

            “Just wait for the major Turkish offensive against the Kurds in
            eastern Syria and northern Iraq.”

            Note that the Peshmerga Kurds in N Iraq are on very good terms with Erdogan. The Turks targeted some PKK strong points there.
            In N Syria, RU/Syria/US are against more Turkish incursions into the area.
            So his only ally would be FSA/Jihadist. Erdogan would become very isolated.

          • John Brown

            If they are such good friends why did Turkey just bomb them fact? “All the Kurds’ want their own state and are “all” working together for it, fact. Turkey will never allow it fact. As Turkey will be next to be carved up as part of the Yilon plan, fact.

          • PZIVJ

            “Turkey will never allow it fact.”
            I agree with this one point.
            Turkey has the largest military in NATO (in Europe).
            So what large military force is going to carve up this country ???

          • John Brown

            In my opinion Israel’s plan which is part of the Yilon plan for a greater Israel, is to order its slave vassals the NATO pact and the USSA to
            attack Turkey in a large air war like they did in Iraq and send some ground troops in some BS humanitarian pretext they make up, (maybe to prevent a genocide against the Kurds in Turkey or save the NATO base etc. take your pick) while at the same time staging another coup against Erdogan from within Turkey and also at the same time have the Kurds attack Turkey from Syria and Iraq and also have the Kurds rise up in the South East of Turkey. The key to victory for Israel here is for the
            coup to succeed to at least partially succeed to split the Turkish military into at least 2 parts and then have a Turkish civil war to totally destroy the country Syria style and exterminate millions of Turkey’s population and drive tens of millions into the EU as refugees.
            This is why Erdogan needed those new presidential powers and
            continues the purges to defeat any new coup. Turkeys only chance to avoid this fate is to totally crush or prevent any new coup, to attack the Kurds first and destroy them as a military force and to side economically politically and militarily with Russia, China, Syria, Iran etc and to leave the NATO pact and join the EEU. Israel will also order a total
            trade and energy embargo blockade against Turkey to try to collapse its economy and help with any coup to cripple Turkey’s military. This is why Turkey also needs to be energy independent of the empire and also to have an alternative to SWIFT.
            Turkey now has 2 of the 3 now and will have the third energy independence with the new Russian gas pipeline very soon. Erdogan is not going to forget that Israel and its vassal the USA tried to kill him and want him dead that is why the purges are still ongoing.
            I know this is Israel’s plan for a greater Israel because if I were a racist supremacist Jew and wanted a greater Israel and my slave vassal
            empire was on the verge of collapse, so my window of opportunity to do this is running out, it is what I would do and you have to think your enemy is at least as smart as you.
            This is what the extra 54 billion per year for the USSA military
            is for and why the NATO pact is increasing military spending. Saudi Arabia will be the next to crush after Turkey. They did it to Saddam Hussein who was a super loyal puppet of the racist Zionist global
            empire.

          • Thegr8rambino

            How is the agreement gonna help SAA? and how will Putin turn Taliban/afghan into friend? I agree with you tho :)

    • Dustil schmit

      Ha no one trust those backstabbing liars.

    • Sadde

      It requires a well-developed strategic alliance for anything close to what you describe to happen. A strong alliance of strategic importance, in turn, requires trust, which is completely non-existent in terms of todays Turkey. Nobody, not even NATO or Arabs, trusts Turkey – let alone Russia whose aircraft Turkey shot down not long ago. There are many clear indications that contradict your claim, for example, when Russia and US in cooperation prevented Turkey’s progress on either side of AlBab.
      Instead, Erdogan is included in various short-term, hasty tactical constellations with different countries with no definitive positive result for Turkey, in any case not what Turkey sought. I also read your previous comments about this future scenario and felt compelled to comment. I wish Turkey had a good relationship with its neighbors, but the future scenario you describe lacks reality.
      I do not know how it will end but can imagine that Turkey suddenly sees itself completely outmaneuvered, maybe like Egypt.

      • John Brown

        Sadde I understand your doubts but the the alliance I am talking about can’t be known until after it succeeds as the Zionist empire would have already destroyed Turkey before it can do these things if they knew the alliance existed, so for now if it exists it must be kept secret.

        As for trust Erdogan hid at the Russian Syrian base after Putin saved his life warning him only hours before Israeli death squads were to kill Erdogan. Erdogan put his life in Putin’s hands that is trust. Putin saved Erdogan life that is trust. You can’t have a higher level of trust then that. Erdogan needed those new presidential powers to be able to defeat the next Israeli coup when he pulls out of NATO and needs to be energy independent of the empire and also to have an alternative to SWIFT.
        He has 2 of the 3 now and will have the third energy independence with the new
        Russian gas pipeline very soon. Erdogan is not going to forget that Israel and
        its vassal the USA tried to kill him and want him dead that is why the purges are still ongoing.
        Before one goes to war one needs to plan and get ready so one can win and not just go off half cocked.

        • Sadde

          Regarding trust, I meant that no one, such as Russia, seems to trust president Erdogan and its Turkey, regardless of the degree of trust Erdogan feels for Russia. Russia will not start anything great with Erdogan because it does not trust Erdogan, not viseverse.

          Listen my friend. The irregularities in your hypotheses and conclusions are so obvious that I lack words to explain. Let’s see if we can find a common starting point first.
          Can you please clarify approximately when Erdogan and the Alliance you describe began to establish this crafty plan?

          • John Brown

            A minor patching up of differences started shortly before the Israeli coup last summer but the deep alliance I am talking about, when did it start? That is easy it was kickstarted into high gear when Erdogan put is life in Putins hands and Putin saved Erdogans life during the attempted Israeli coup last summer. As for irregularities well its coming together as I said but also as I said Erdogan has to pretend to not be siding with Russia until turkey is ready to go all the way adn can withstand the empires wrath, which is now very soon. China and Russia did and are doing the same thing.

          • Sadde

            Even after the coup you described president Erdogan has not done anything other than infuriate Russia and all its neighbors; all the scheming with different Jihadi terrorists in Idlib and AlBab; clearly taking part in the alleged chemical attack to accuse and condemn president Assad and Syrian army; bombing Syria and Iraq without permission and in clear violence of their integrity; even publicly ridicule their leaders with derogatory descriptions when they condemn Turkey’s unlawful interference and so on …
            The list of unpleasantnesses between Turkey and its neighbors in the past year is so long that it could destroy even the strongest of alliances, let alone creating one. If you think that Erdogan pretends all these to hide an underlying plot then I do not think we can find a common ground to build the discussion on.

            The best Erdogan can hope for in the next decade is an effektive damage control, unfortunately I have not seen any clear signs of it either. Clear implementation of the latest agreement on de-escalation zones can be counted as a clear indication of damage control. We shall see …

          • John Brown

            Yes you have got it the best Turkey can do is to survive. Erdogan gets it finally, but it took Israeli death squads coming for him to wake him up. Turkey was supposed to be pushed into war with Russia to be destroyed and severely harm Russia as part of the Yilon plan but he saw that at the last moment and tried to make up with Russia and instant Israeli coup attempt. The chemical attacks are directed by Mossad and the CIA as they run ISIS and Al Qaeda not Turkey.

            You are wrong about Turkey doing, nothing a huge amount of work has been done in the purges to root out the Rothchild Israeli 5th column to get ready to leave NATO and Turkey has helped Russia and Syria as much as it can in Syria without giving the game away.

        • Thegr8rambino

          How do u know it was Israeli NATO staged coup and not er dog an staging the coup himself? I hate Zionists too but this is a good question

    • Störtebembel

      And then? Do Russia, China and Iran buying the 55 % of Turkisch exports to EU and USA for double the price? LOL…

      • John Brown

        Yes it will be big short term sacrifice during the change
        over in trading patterns but Turkey’s trade with the EU part of the empire
        is dropping anyway and will collapse when the European economy collapses
        probably in 5 years tops. Turkey also has to give its sovereignty and now its
        very existence as a state to trade with the EEU and they can keep their sovereignty
        existence as a state and domestic polices like capital punishment etc with the
        EEU. The EEU is also growing rapidly and will be a bigger economy and market
        then the EU and the USSA as well if it is not already. There is a future in trading
        with the EEU and that Turkey would have to make this change in trading patterns
        anyway as their future is in trading with the EEU no matter what.

  • Barba_Papa

    Is it wrong to almost hope that this will happen and watch both Crazy Erdogan and The Donald go to great lengths to twist and turn this incident so it becomes an honest mistake, nothing to see here, and The Donald does not have to launch his cruise missiles at Turkey?

    Fetch me some popcorn, this will be interesting to watch.

    • dutchnational

      Let us hope that if this happens, only US politicians are struck. The cowards almost deserve it.

      • Gabriel Hollows

        Almost?

    • 888mladen .

      Are you sure you would have some popcorn rather than a piece of chocolate cake? Pretty inhuman and overly insensitive to human suffering caused by criminal elite of the world and you scored fife points. You guys really need to reexamine yourself.

  • cortisol

    Erdogan knows Nato and CIA is after him. They want to replace him with a more reliable globalist puppet. I don’t think Turkey threatened US forces per se, just rather that if they have to attack YPG they will act as if they weren’t there.

  • sagbotgamot

    You won’t dare do that..or else…

  • John Whitehot

    reading the (few) interviews with US personnel which have been deployed in Syria with the Kurds, they seem much more keen on shooting Turkey’s friends than the regular Syrian Army. One soldier, to a question about moderate and less moderate jihadists replied “We should just kill them all”.

    • Mr.Y

      Please could you link these interviews?
      Where Can we Read them?

    • Free man

      After nine eleven the Americans tolerance to jihadists is very low.

      • Bob

        Amongst the general US public and active serviceman yes – however, in contrast the Pentagon is quite keen on jihadists and delivers weapons and politically sponsorship to them across Syria – Jaish-Al-Islam etc – that the State Department and Pentagon insist on claiming as ‘moderate’ Islamist’s.

    • Rodger

      Hahaha, moderate jihadi.

  • Ivanus59

    American soldiers can’t be at EVERY place all the time, Turkoids will simply avoid them and attack Kurds in a different place :P And Americans will issue a protest note XD and that’s it.
    I hope Turkoids would kill a few Amers and would be even better if Amers would kill a few turkoids in return. But I doubt it, the snakes are too clever to start attacking each other.

  • Free man

    It will not happen. The Turks are not so dumb as to bite the hand that feeds them.

    • PZIVJ

      With Turkey lobbing arty rounds over the border, it could very well happen.
      MSM would make a lot of noise and Erdogan will have to issue more apologies.

      • Free man

        American public opinion will not accept a situation in which American soldiers are being killed by Turkey.
        I hope for Turkey that They won’t try.

    • Bill Wilson

      Trump may bitch slap Erdogan by halting imports of dubious Turkish “organic” grains which have driven down their prices so much that most US organic growers barely break even raising that stuff. Their main complaint is that the Turk stuff lacks traceable documentation that certifies it’s 100% organic and is just acknowledged by the Turkish government that it is.
      I wouldn’t be surprised if Tayyip was getting a piece of that action. An import ban should make the Turks a bit relieved since that should reduce the country’s need for imported Russian grains that now subjected to an 125% import tariff. Commodity traders around the World figured Turkey didn’t have very much grains in reserve for just the bakeries alone before pulling that fool stunt.

    • Yes they are.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Turkey will not bomb US or Israel ever.
    Turkey will only bomb Syrian civilians.
    Turkey is a 100% devoted Zionist-empire.

    • 888mladen .

      You have to understand that Turkey and Zionist entity have conflict of interest over ME. Jerusalem was a part of the former Ottoman empire and Erdog’s dream is to take it back.. Kurdish project is owned by Vatican Zionists whose main role is to keep Jerusalem for their masters. Vatican will continue promulgating its agenda while keeping Turks busy fighting Kurds. US and NATO are part of Vatican’s project for world dominance and its military might. Independent Kurdish state is the red line for Turkey and it will do whatever it takes to prevent it. And yes Turkey is a dodgy ally which could not be trusted by anybody. RU is trying to use Turkey for furthering its own interests in ME and it would love to see Turkey and NATO
