Turkey INVADES Syria tanks and soldiers cross the border
Daily Star Uk ^ | Jan. 21, 2018 | Rachel O'Donoghue

Shocking pictures show dozens of tanks and armoured vehicles crossing over the border in a terrifying display of military might.

But the Syrian-Kurdish YPG militia has denied there is a full-scale invasion underway, claiming forces clashed in Afrin but Turkish soldiers were beaten back.

YPG official, Nouri Mahmoudi, said "all the Turkish military's ground attacks against Afrin have been repelled so far and they have been forced to retreat."

A statement from the militia said: "Our people are holding on to their land and do not accept surrender... we repeat our determination to protect our people in Afrin against the attacks."

Turkey has claimed the massive movement of military hardware into the country is simply to create a 30km-deep "safe zone" in the north of the country.

Syria is occupied by Russian, Iranian, American and now Turkish troops. What are American soldiers accomplishing? How will further sacrifices of human and material treasure enhance the security and well being of the American people? Trump should withdraw quickly before the US is mired in another Mideast quagmire.

BHO is thankfully out of power and irrelevant. He can no longer influence foreign policy anymore than you and I can. All he can do is shoot off his stupid mouth and prove what an idiot he is now that he no longer has speech writers or a teleprompter to tell him what to say.

Erdogan's been waiting for an opportunity. If he thinks he can push across the Syrian border and not get a forceful response (publicly or otherwise) from PDJT he's as wrong as can be.

Guess what?

The NATO member Turkey is an enemy of the United States and, by extension, all of Western Civilization.

This will not end well.
We (US) can only be caught in the middle.

Walid Shoebat has been warning about this for a long time. Turkey wants to resurrect the Ottoman Empire. Watch out for an alliance with Iran (Persia), to take over the Kurds, then Saudi Arabia and the entire region.

“(0bama)He can no longer influence foreign policy anymore than you and I can.”

Unless “you and I” occupy high level positions in the US Government, nothing could be further from the truth.

exactly - I agree with Trump who said we squandered $6 trillion and thousands of lives over there for NOTHING. It’s a waste to get involved

Main guns over the back deck and a few even invaded on HET trailers behind semi trucks. Never quite seen a battle plan like that?

Everyone seems cordial and waving.

FREEPER TREADHEAD PING

This is just an push-back at the success of the Kurds in Syria. We had the chance in the Bush administration to do something for the Kurds. Perhaps the Kurds were uncooperative, but having them divided up by the Turks, Syrians and Iraq for the last 120 years doesn’t seem to be very sensible.
