I post sometimes to learn here we have a situation where Turkey is hitting the Kurds specifically.
Does ATS see any US counter assault as possible?

Nah the US will ignore it.

NATO & all that.


Which is a shame because the Kurds were one of the first to pick up arms against ISIS.

No. The kurds might almost be halfway decent and they're doing the hard work to fight for their own country.

How dare they try to build that!

We wouldn't help them; it goes against the idea of the global order to be independent like that.

That story references the Kurdish YPG forces, whose headquarters region is southeastern Turkey.

The other Kurdish region of fame is north eastern Iraq where they have their capital city; you can read about that at:
en.wikipedia.org...

The Turkish Kurds have been a thorn in Turkey's side for ever and a day. The Iraqi Kurds leading political party is the PKK.

The US has helped the Iraqi Kurds in the past during the Sadaam war and more recently against ISIS.

I rather doubt that the US will help the "Turkish YPG" Kurds. Obama isn't any big fan of the Kurds and I doubt HRC is either. And the US won't want to hurt relations with Turkey.

Curiosity about the picture in the link you referenced.

Can you name/identify that tank?
I'll give a hint: production of that series tank began in 1960 in Chrysler's Detroit Arsenal Plant; production continued through 1987. It served as one of the Main Battle Tank types in the Vietnam War with the US military.

That was before he was in the group making the call, pulling the trigger and making huge amounts of money.

Turkey is just clearing out a buffer area hitting ISIS and Kurds along the border. That will be the extent of it. They will the let the Kurds fight it out with Assad after ISIS loses their last stronghold. And lets not forget the Kurds, do not exist as a single group.

The PKK is Turkish and a known terrorist group that the Turks hate. The Iraqi Kurds do not get along with the either. They are allied to the most Kurdish groups in Syria.

The Iraqi Kurds are Turkish and US allies. they do not get along with the Iraqi gov, the PKK or most of the Syrian Kurds.

The Syrian Kurds are a divided group, however the armed YPG dominate them them all at this point, the do not get along with the Turks, with Assad, with the Iraqi Kurds but, are big part of the SDF thus allied to the US and the Syrian Arab rebels.

So no likely the US will not do anything unless the Turks were to move against Kurdish units with US special forces attached. Assad has been attacking them by land and air and the only time the US moved was when they hit units with US forces attached.

Biden asked the Kurds to 'hang back'. "Its a politically complex situation", he reminds them over the din of Turkish shells raining down.

We are your friends.

US is supporting the invasion of Syria wth its member NATO state Turkey, providing air support...


As part of the offensive, U.S. A-10s and F-16s carried out air strikes against Islamic State positions in Syrian city of Jarabulus, according to a U.S. military official who spoke on condition of anonymity. American forces also assisted with planning for the operation and provided intelligence and reconnaissance support, another U.S. official said.

Bloomberg

Armored assault by columns of tanks backed by US air support to get some guys in ninja hoodies and white pick up trucks out of Syria? We are to believe NATO is invading Syria to help Assad?

IMO, just military posturing prior to the talks in Geneva between Medev and Kerry, this past week.

I am glad it's not just me who finds this development very sad and sickening.
The Kurds of all people deserve better than this backstabbing and betrayal.
It's not the US btw it's the NATO and one more reason to be ashamed of the two faced, dishonest "western world".
More blood on our hands.

In short, no. This isn't even the first time that Turkey's targeted Kurdish groups during the Syrian civil war. Just last year, Turkey led a huge offensive against the Kurds and nobody jumped in to help them. These quotes are from an October article:


Turkey has confirmed that it struck positions in Syria held by Kurdish militias that over the last year have become the most important allies within Syria of the American-led coalition fighting the Islamic State.


The government had already renewed fighting in July with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or P.K.K., both in Turkey and in Iraq, where the group has camps in the mountains of the north. But Turkey had, for a time, seemed to turn a blind eye to Syria’s Kurds because of their growing relationship with the United States, which had argued that the P.Y.D. should be regarded as separate from the P.K.K., even though the groups have close ties and a shared socialist ideology.

Turkey now seems intent on viewing the two groups as one and the same. In recent weeks, it has sharply criticized United States support for the Syrian Kurds, which began last year during the battle for Kobani.

NATO's biggest Army going against NATO member ?

If we were in the 1980's , I would have asked ; Why Comrade ?

You want to pick on Turks whom you had paid protection money to protect your interest in the Med ?



Pentagon Generals [ Globalists or Nationalists ] would tell you to use your brain son .

I am just going to remind you few facts and ask you a few questions if I may .

1 - Invading force is 1/3rd Kurdish .
2 - Istanbul is the biggest Kurdish City on EARTH.
3 - Northern Kurdistan wants to UNITE with Turks and separate from Arabs & Persians .
4 - PKK = YPG


Now the questions

Do you ever research anything you post ?
Do you like being at odds or outright in conflict with facts & realities ?
Majority of Kurds hate YPG , and PKK ; why don't you believe them ?

A counter assault by the US, are you serious? Turky is a slave state of the US. The US has a huge base there.

As I see this, this about a plan being implemented that I read of quite some months ago. There is a very small but very powerful mid state that likes to surrounded by rubble and broken states.

Breaking up of Northern Syria will see the creation of perhaps two small states with a reduction in size of the two bigger states who have borders with Turkey.

All brought about by the US to suit their partner, or is that, master, in that very small but very powerful mid east state that likes to be surrounded by broken states and rubble.

We damn sure should! The Kurds are one of the last bastions of a people in the area that are good and moral...

They love America despite all we have done to them, they fight for what's right and they fight for others ....

We should be ashamed what we've done to them
