…tensions rise

"Mounting tensions between Kurdish and Turkish troops in northern Syria have threatened to open a new front in the country's complex war.

The two US allies have traded blame over recent clashes in the Kurdish-controlled city of Afrin.

YPG fighters say Turkish military deployments in areas under their control amount to a declaration of war…"

Something completely inevitable and easily predictable … once ISIS has been completely defeated … Turkey and the Kurds will again face … of course this time the Kurds have proven to be the best in the current war and have a very good Material from USA that will support their own actions …. it will not be easy for Turkey to keep them out of their future independence …

Is anyone surprised by this new development? Please tell me you guys already saw this happening the moment you heard the Turks were in Syria.

I'm simply shocked that the Turkish army and the Russians haven't exploded into all-out war yet.

PS. Letting Turkey cross into Syria and Iraq was another one of those "what could possibly go wrong with this" ideas.

Actually in Ezekiel 38-39, the Bible talks about a future war between Israel and a confederation of States which are; Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, and Sudan/Ethiopia.

It's definitely a powder keg begging for a spark.

Yeah the Russian Turk thing is so out of the norm, they have been enemies I think for 400 years at least.

At least. But, for the last few decades, they've been itching for another round.

The Kurds may find themselves surprised at being used, then sold out by the US in favor of other interests.

I feel sympathy for the Kurds, who have done much of the hard fighting against ISIL/Daesh, and deserve their own nation, but they've been used as cat's paws by all sides, most recently by the Americans, and they'll be right to feel betrayed.
