Originally published at: Erdogan vows to fight US-backed forces with rebels in Syria

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that Syrian opposition fighters will support Turkey’s planned military operation against Kurdish militia forces in Syria’s Afrin region, speaking from Turkish Parliament in Ankara on Tuesday.

His audience of AK party members cheered and chanted as Erdogan announced Turkey’s plan to “demolish terror nests one by one, starting from Afrin and Mumbij”.

Speaking on the US administration, Erdogan said, “Those who stabbed us in the back and appear to be our allies and terror-supporting politician lookalikes cannot prevent it.”

The Turkish leader has repeatedly talked about impending military operations in Syria’s Afrin and Manbij regions. His warnings follow the US-led coalition’s decision to build a 30,000-strong border force with the help of the Kurdish YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

I predicted long ago that Turkey will end being the biggest loser in the very sad Syrian affair. It’s beginning to take serious shape.
The best advise I could give to Erdogan : f*cking pull out of Syria and better take care of Turkey’s domestic affairs (and in a pretty different pattern you’re into) : the ways you’re in are going nowhere and you won’t be allowed to build an Ottoman empire v.2.0.
Actually, Mr.Erdogan, you really need a psychiatrist : you simply haven’t the means to fulfil your dreams of greatness.
You’re even making everybody having a laugh about telling about backstabbing as you’re sleeping with everybody for money, no matter if it’s EU, USA, Russia, Iran, Qatar, ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc etc.The fact is that, Mr.Erdogan, you’re nothing else than a whore. By playing all sides, you just end being seen as a traitor or at best an unreliable partner by all players. You surely can take short term benefits from it but in the long run, it will ALWAYS blow back!

They are no opposition fighter but Turkish mercenaries. They were from the start. Never anything but foreign paid traitors.


He tries to create a Muslim Sunni unity thus mitigating Turkey’s etnic problems. On sort of opium for the masses is a common religion.

But I doubt that this works after years of discrimination off all that are not ethnic Turks.

Or even on ethnic ones, or else, he wouldn’t have had to rig elections and the referendum…

Few data on ethnic. High percentage of people with migration & refugee background because of the Balkan wars.

No idea how rigged all was.

UN observers finger-pointed the rigging. Didn’t searched further but the Turkish Mussolini is far from being as popular as he pretends to…
