and so far "The Mighty Trump" is nowhere to be seen.
Giving details of the overnight strike, a security official said one of the main goals was to cut off transit route between Iraq and Syria often used by Kurdish armed groups “before the operation in Syria”.


[www.reuters.com]
ANKARA/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey’s military struck the Syrian-Iraqi border to prevent Kurdish forces using the route to reinforce northeast Syria, as Ankara prepares to launch an offensive there after a surprise U.S. troop pullback, Turkish officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

Turkey says it is ready to advance into northeast Syria, after the United States began pulling back troops from the Turkey-Syria frontier in an abrupt policy shift widely criticized in Washington as a betrayal of America’s allies.

The U.S. move will leave Kurdish-led forces long allied to Washington vulnerable to attack by the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK), which brands them terrorists because of their links to Kurdish militants who have waged a long insurgency in Turkey.

The next president will probably have to send in triple the troops to stop ethnic cleansing.

This gives Trump a reason to go to war with Turkey, relying on the mass media consumers' short term memory defecits. (Never mind that he just pulled the rug out from under the Kurds.) In his mind, we would be defending our friends, the Kurds. Incumbent presidents get re-elected when a war is on, remember? Sheesh.
