More combustion in the Middle East.
Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, announced a major military ground and air operation into Syrian territory. Sharing a 500-mile border, Erdoğan said this area also would be used to resettle up to two million Syrian refugees currently living in Turkey.
The White House issued a statement on 7 October that “U.S. armed forces will not support or be involved in the operation” and will leave the area.
This now puts Kurdish forces, who were recruited by the U.S. in its war to overthrow the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad, at high risk of being defeated by the much larger and more militarily advanced Turkish troops.
Adding fuel to the potential fire, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces issued a statement on 5 October warning Turkey they would “not hesitate to turn any unprovoked attack into an all-out war.”
TRENDPOST: Rather than celebrating the U.S. withdrawal of troops who illegally invaded a foreign nation, U.S. warmonger politicians and media immediately launched an attack on President Trump’s timidity for bringing the troops home.
The headline breaking news from Newsweek told the story: “Exclusive: Official Who Heard Call Says Trump Got ‘Rolled’ by Turkey and ‘Has No Spine’.”
The Pentagon “official,” a.k.a. military industrial complex stooge whose name Newsweek claims must remain secret, said the U.S. withdrawal “play[ed] into the hands of the Islamic State group, Damascus and Moscow, and the announcement left Trump’s own Defense Department ‘completely stunned’.”
“President Trump was definitely out-negotiated and only endorsed the troop withdraw to make it look like we are getting something – but we are not getting something,” the National Security Council source told Newsweek. “The U.S. national security has entered a state of increased danger for decades to come because the president has no spine and that’s the bottom line.”
PUBLISHER’S NOTE: “The U.S. national security has entered a state of increased danger for decades to come?”
The United States entered a state of increased danger for its decades of numerous, illegal bloody wars of murder that cost trillions to kill millions. As for having “no spine,” not having won a war since World War II, the Pentagon has no brains.
How about Occupy Peace for decades to come?
