Kurds in Syria call on US support to rein in Turkish operations

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

(Worthy News) - Syria's Kurdish militias have grown frustrated with the United States and its stance over the assault by Turkish forces in Afrin, on mainly-Kurdish areas of northwestern Syria near the Turkish border.

"How can they stand by and watch?" Aldar Khalil, a senior Kurdish politician, asked of the US-led coalition. "They should meet their obligations towards this force that participated with them (in the fight against terrorism). We consider their unclear and indecisive positions as a source of concern."

Turkey began an offensive, dubbed Operation Olive Branch on January 20 with the stated aim of hitting positions held by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) and "Islamic State" militants, although IS is not known to have a presence in Afrin. Turkey, a NATO ally to the United States, views the main Kurdish militia as an extension of the Kurdish insurgency it has battled for decades. [ Source: Deutche Welle (Read More...) ]

  1. "How can they stand by and watch?"

    It's easy. Look at the way the USA treats it's own citizens, inside of the US. See how the present Adm wants to cut necessary medical care to it's own children, inside the USA.

    When Aldar Khalil, a senior Kurdish politician, asks of the US-led coalition. "They should meet their obligations towards this force that participated with them (in the fight against terrorism). We consider their unclear and indecisive positions as a source of concern." it is no joke.

    Most US families no longer have the resources to pay for even a minor medical emergency. And Kurds wonder?

    This is why Trump is right to say "America First."

    This is why the USA needs to pick it battles from now on and has no business defending anyone if it can no longer defend its own self from invaders coming in, sneaking in, unvetted, with illegal immigrants.

    This is why countries demand immigrants come legally and above board. The USA can't even take care of it's own and Kurds couldn't see the writing on that wall? Don't their leaders have access to CNN, FOX, MSN.com, ABC, NBC, BBC...?

  2. Have the kurd move there feminist only corp to defend all Kurdistan!
    Else disband them then go and fight. Turks like Saudis are covering up Naoh's Ark and Mt Sinai (alias mount of Moses). But then the Kurds are closest to the jews ie lost tribes that went to Assyria and land of the Medes. As bibical mytholgy is becoming truth maybe these Kurd clowns will adopt a more classical approach to living versus their silly secular leftist ideas.
