US Deploys Troops Along Syria-Turkey Border

Appears the U.S. has just put in place "human shields" to protect the Kurds from Turkey. This could be interesting. Anyone think the tin-pot dictator Erdogan is dumb enough to fire upon US troops?

www.zerohedge.com...




Just three days after Turkish warplanes killed at least 20 US-backed Kurdish fighters along the Turkey-Syria border as well as several Kurdish peshmerga troops on Mount Sinjar in northwestern Iraq, footage posted by Syrian activists showed the US has deployed troops and APCs in the contested region, in a move that could potentially drag the US in a conflict where it already finds itself mediating between two so-called US ally forces in the proxy war against Syria.

But the new deployment puts U.S. troops directly along the border with Turkey, another flashpoint, and immerses Washington into that increasingly hot fight. Should Erdogan happen to launch a strike against a zone containing US troops, he can simply say he was aiming elsewhere, although the retaliation by his NATO ally would be prompt.

It remains unclear if the US is now actively seeking to engage Turkey on the combat field, and is looking for a politically correct, and media friendly pretext to do so. It is also unclear what a conflict between the US and Turkey would mean for the rest of NATO: it certainly would set a precedent, as never before has fighting broken out between two alliance members.

Turkey is not interested in an all out conflict with the Kurds.

Turkey only has the means and methods for defense.

Nothing is going to happen..

Like in the South Park movie, these troops are most black and minorities?

What the heck!?! This is reality not creative drama comedy! You really seem to have fallen for the liberal holly weird version of reality. This is real life not tv.

Ugh...just getting so disgusted with folks avoiding facing the real world by bantering about Hollywood creations!


Edit add: Egad! I need to go to bed. I am unusually cranky tonight. Just enjoy the laughs and entertainment of Hollywood, don't fall for the proproganda. Good night.

sure some USA troops are there for Kurd support...but not to act as human shields to stop the Turks from bombing the 'seperatist' Kurds

on-the-other-hand.... the ISIS fighters move unhindered across the Turk border to re-supply and find refuge from the fight for a weekend rest....
Those are the same ISIS Jihadists who the Russians are targeting as anti-Assad forces,
it might be that the USA troops might well be criss-crossing the Syria-Turk border with only a sand-dune keeping one group from seeing the other
~now that will keep the Russians uneasy, Since the Russians don't want to kill the Americans accidently when they are attacking the ISIS/AQ/Salifis/Jihadi/anti-Assad terrorists~

hmmm... perhaps the neocons hidden in the Trump regime are being clever with a human-shield tactic after all by setting USA troops on the Turk Syria border instead of up there in the upper NW territories the Kurds are known to inhabit for decades now
