...we should prepare for more refugees; the legal and the illegal.

the world runs on a simple rule. big fish eat the little fish unless they have a friendly fish that is bigger and can lend a hand. gcs have had the benfit of this in the un by getting help in the un and blocking every move for peace. of course they were helpless when it came to 1974. even the big fish know when it is against their interest to intefere.

when the amercians offered help the kerds should have thought it through to the end game. there is no way russia would allow assad to be removed. once they sided with the yanks they were doomed.

The Kurds have turned to Assad and the SAA for help having found out that their US ally has dumped them and left them to fight it out with Turkey! At least they can rely on Assad and Putin to keep their word?

SAA took over Manbij today and the Syrian flag is flying over the town. More towns will fall to the SAA in the coming week or so. :D

you should read the reports with a little more attention.


https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-turkey-kurds/friend-or-foe-assad-quietly-aids-syrian-kurds-against-turkey-idUSKBN1FV078

<<Turkey, which regards the Kurdish YPG militia in Afrin as a threat on its southern border, launched an assault on the region last month. Seeking to shield Afrin, the Kurds asked Damascus to send forces into action to defend the border.

The government shows no sign of doing so, but it is providing indirect help by allowing Kurdish fighters, civilians and politicians to reach Afrin through territory it holds, representatives of both sides told Reuters. >>

I would not call this action help at all, it is more like a trap to be wiped out by the turkish armed forces.

I suppose it depends on who’s ’reports’ you read? The only source that counters this, that I could find, was The Washington Post!

Syria army enters Kurdish-held Manbij: state media

Reported troop entry into Manbij comes after Kurdish YPG asked for government help in preventing a 'Turkish invasion'.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/12/syria-army-enters-manbij-state-media-181228092705808.html


https://sana.sy/en/?p=154522

..... and none of this has been reported in the Western press! They picture the MSM paint is completely different and mainly speculation and opinion. :x

Maybe, you should check your sources, like who owns Reuters? :roll:

really? you don't trust reuters?

dont worry, the terggs are gone to russia to work out a deal. but in any case the terggs would be very happy if the kerds hand over their territory to the syrians. their worry of the kerds also asking for autonomy subsides. they are asking for the ype to cross to the other side of euphraties river.

I withdraw my comment and apologise, it was misleading! (and wrong) Apparently, Reuters is an agency that other news sites sign up to for a premium which allows them to use and even reprint there reports. However they are one of just two agency's that supply the news to the six major news networks. It is when the actually rather bland and strictly un-biased reporting is picked up by others it changes. Reuters are accredited as the source which makes it appear as a Reuters report but these other sides add their own editorial to their own report and is where the bias is added. So it's not a Reuters problem really but how others then use their basic information !

I see the Kurds coming to an arrangement with Assad in return for limited autonomy. That may well mean moving some of them them East of the Euphrates but they will also remain in Manbij with the SAA there as well. The SAA will protect the Kurds provided they do not cross the Turkish border or back them against Turkey if Turkey crosses the border into Syria. Just my view. :roll:
