BREAKING: This could get ugly early. Syria joining the Kurds to oppose Turkey. UPDATED

This is breaking as we speak. Whatever Trump intended when he stabbed our Kurdish allies in the back by giving Turkey free rein to slaughter them, it isn’t working out as either he, or his fellow pocket despot Erdogan had intended. MSNBC is reporting that the Syrian Kurds have made their decision. They have made their deal-with-the-devil by siding with Assad and the Syrian government. As such, Syrian forces are advancing towards the Turkish border, and will be folding the Kurds into their forces as they advance. This is incredibly dangerous, and could quickly spiral out of control. Trump’s greed has not only abdicated our position of any authority in Syria, but in giving Erdogan the green light to obliterate the Kurds, he let that dipshit end up biting off more than he can chew. Erdogan is now trying to set up a 20 mile “security zone” along the Turkish-Syria border. But now he has front line Syrian troops advancing to defend their own sovereign territory, and mixed in with them, or perhaps even leading the way for honors sake, there is a very well battle tested Kurdish force, wanting revenge on the Turkish troops for pulling this lame shit in the first place. And one more thing to consider, even at this early stage. Syria has the full backing of Russia, and acts in consultation and concert with Vlad the Imp. Russia has had it’s troubles with Turkey over the years, including the Turkish downing of a Russian fighter a couple of years ago during another Syrian border dispute. Only Trumpenstein can fuck things up so completely without even having a clue as to what he’s doing. You now have Syrian troops, augmented by Kurds, moving forward to expel Turkish troops. If Turkey digs in, then you no longer have a border skirmish gone wrong, you have a regional conflict. And if Putin embeds Russian troops with the Syrian troops moving forward, and Turkey causes Russian casualties, the conflict likely gets even broader. And there sit 1,000 US troops, no longer with a dog in the fight, but still in harms way. I will update this column with any new information as it becomes available. But this is what happens when you have an unqualified, petty, self dealing criminal running national security foreign policy. It’s the rest of us who end up paying the price, simply because Trump couldn’t care less. UPDATE 9:25 a.m. PDT: MSNBC is reporting that Erdogan is using Turkish militias in addition to regular Turkish troops, and those militias are about as anti Assad as it’s possible to get. If they come in contact with Syrian troops, this is going to get personal in a hurry. They are also reporting that there are already several hundred ISIS fighters that have already escaped from Kurdish captivity, and may of them are trying to spring as many more of them as possible. If they get their hands on weapons laying around, US troops could find themselves being attacked by ISIS groups. And the cherry on top. While the US forces have drawn farther back, and are consolidating, defending on how things flow, they could end up surrounded. Trump has made it clear that the US will not fight Turkey on Syrian soil. But if a US position is fired on, either accidentally or on purpose, by […]
