Turkey attacks US allies after Trump stands down

Turkey attacks US allies after Trump stands down 1

Turkey began a planned military offensive into northeastern Syria on Wednesday, launching airstrikes and artillery fire across the border just days after the Trump administration announced it was pulling US troops back from the area.

The operation is aimed at pushing Kurdish forces — who were a key ally of the US in the fight against ISIS — away from Turkey's border.

"Our aim is to destroy the terror corridor which is trying to be established on our southern border and to bring peace and peace to the region," Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan tweeted as he announced the start of the operation.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) who operate in the area are US allies. They are led by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), which Turkey considers a terrorist organization.

      Let them fight their own battles. Dirt world countries shouldn’t be America’s concern

    • That’s what I said all of this chaos all of these lives all of this death and everything else in between his on the heads of his supporters. Trump will answer for his crimes but his supporters well hopefully they will get what is coming to them because when you vote out of greed for a greedy man you will get what’s coming to you

    • Every thing that happens is blood on Trumps hands and his supporters, if this was Obama he would be gett3the noble peace prize

    • KPP blood? I’ll take that!
      It’s hard to be modest when we’re heroes.

    Well that didn’t take long. America is completely feckless.

  5. Trump the scumbag has handed America’s enemies a great victory. Iran, Russia, and IS are happy bunnies tonight.

  6. Trump’s next book should be: How to Lose Allies in 4 Years.

    • This is getting weird its like libtards dont take second to think they just orange man bad and everyone is supposed to applaud, they weren’t allies we don’t have treaties

    • Norman Vega you are partially right on that matter but the reason why Kurds were fighting is because they wanted part of Syria so they can establish their long dreamed country but Turkey clearly states over and over that Syria should not be divided I mean you have to understand that there is 4 million Syrian people in Turkey so this is only option left for Turkey and you will see that no civilian will get hurt if you look at all the other operations Turkey did civilians were happy to see Turkish troops because they don’t want to see war any more and Turkey will end that

    • @T A T Turkey is still in NATO right?

    • @Danny v Yes, but USA’s actions damage its reputation in Turkey and cause anti-americanism to rise. There is a big trust issue with USA, many people now believe USA is trying to undermine Turkey.

      Turkey is theorically an American ally but the people don’t view it that way, and neither does Americans feel the same about Turkey anymore, the relations are badly damaged.

    • @T A T I hear ha but have understand the power dynamic we are the alpha so everyone wants us to fight for them ,Turkey has done plenty of things to the US in kind again no more American shields, I remember when the left had principles and emotions

  7. So Trump’s towers in Istanbul are safe now that he caved to Erdogan.

    This has to be one of the most humiliating moments for American prestige.

  11. Let’s see how long it takes for the second part of 9-11
    This president is a traitor. A Putin asset.

  12. Turkey is a NATO member and is allies with the United states. The United states has military bases in Turkey.

      This actually benefits Russia in a different way though. It’s not because Russia is against Syria, it’s because Russia can now feel free to make moves in Syria because America isn’t there to make things awkward. Trust me, it helps Russia.

      And yes, Turkey is a part of NATO, but what they are doing is committing genocide. Our folks were keeping this happening because we’re allies with Turkey. They wouldn’t destroy Syria because we were there. Now, they’re taking down not just military personnel but innocent people as well. They don’t care. They’re taking everybody down.

      And let’s not even mention how the terrorists are salivating over this. We had them on the ropes until now.

      This was a move to get the attention off the Ukraine thing, but it’s actually just adding fuel to the fire.

    • you better get some more details before you start pointing fingers, at least pay attention… Good God! Where have you been?

    This is to cover for his impeachment. It’s a smoke screen of dead people

  17. “that was a good partnership, they did the dying for us”

    As a Kurd at this point we rather be allied with N. Korea than USA. What a shame to treat your allies this way.

  19. The Kurds lost over 10,000 people fighting isis along side the U.S. that means nothing to trump. This is a sad moment for America.

  20. “We BELIEVE we saw thick smoke”, what a weird way of saying what they saw.

    • indigosigh that thick smoke actually making by Syrian side! Turkish Army using none pilot small plane. The reason for that fire is they want to cover what they hiding it cuz on sky plane can detect it. So this video is totally wrong these are not explosions. Terrorists making this for a purpose. Also they wearing civil clothes, very soon all the news will say Turks killing innocent people in Syria. You guys have no idea what we are fighting for…
