Turkey: a careful Syrian invasion

Posted: August 26, 2016 in Uncategorized

Now you know what was all the fuss about rounds of meetings with Russia and Iran.

Turkey was seeking the agreement (or better said non-intervention) of Iran and Russia (and so the Syrian elected Government) to partially invade Syria to get rid of Islamic State by its border (actually in reality the Islamic State was going to be overtaken by the Kurd – and Syria wanted to prevent it).

As everybody agrees there is not too much to worry (aside the fact that accident can happen). Also, after the after-coup Turkish purges, the Turkish military is severely weakened s command structure.

This intervention also explains why last week for the first time since 2013 the Syrian Government Army attacked the Kurds.

And also it sheds light on why the Iranians are so aggressive against the US ships in the Gulf – as Iranian sides with the Syrian Government and the US with the Kurds – it is showing that Iranians are not quite happy of this US involvement (as the Turks and Russian).
