With Turkey the pretend ally of the USA, there's a whole lot of Oscar winning acting going on in the theatre of war in the Middle East. Kurds are the best fighters to use against the Frankenstein monstrous jihadis but instead the powers-that-be are in the process of training Sunni "moderate rebels" to fight the jihadi army and are all fine and dandy with Erdogan killing as many Kurds as his heart desires.
The Caliphate is coming and it's not Baghdadi who will be the first ruling caliph .... it's going to be Erdogan. That has been his dream from the day he was born.
With Turkey expected to join the EU, can we start thinking of the EU too becoming part of the Caliphate? I can visualize it happening.
Turkish aircraft are reported
to have bombed Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) positions in southeast Turkey, in a move which many fear will put an ongoing peace process at risk.
F-16 and F-4 jets flying from bases in Malatya and Diyarbakir struck PKK outposts in the mountainous Daglica district in Hakkari province late on Monday night in response to previously unreported RPG attacks by the group on a military guard post in the area, according to the English language Hurriyet Daily. The area has been the site of regular clashes between the Turkish armed forces and the PKK, which has fought for more than 30 years for greater autonomy within Turkey and is considered by authorities to be a terrorist organization.
They were the first strikes of their kind since a government initiated peace process with the PKK began in 2013. Parts of southeastern Turkey recently saw widespread protests in response to Ankara's lack of action in the face of a major offensive by Islamic State (IS) jihadists on the majority Kurdish town of Kobane on the Syrian-Turkish border. Violent clashes between pro-Kobane protesters, security forces and Islamist Kurds broke out as a result, killing at least 37.
The attacks came ahead of an October 15 deadline by which jailed PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan said his group would abandon the peace process unless Turkey moved to progress it. Many Kurds believe that a condition of the process continuing should be that Turkey allow a corridor into Kobane, also known as Ayn al-Arab, for Kurdish fighters and humanitarian and military aid.....
