Erdogan Says US Must Choose Between Turkey And Syrian Kurds
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday accused the United States of creating a “pool of blood” in the region by failing to recognise the main Syrian Kurdish organisations as terror groups.
The recent dispute between North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies Turkey and the USA centers on Washington’s objection to labeling the PYD as a terrorist group, instead classifying it as “a reliable partner”. “This is what I told them”, Erdogan said.
In an impassioned and sometimes angry address, Erdogan asked whether the United States was an ally or was working with groups Ankara lists as terror organisations.
We’ve gotten a bit off the international news beat but this and stories connected to it, seem to be important.
Yes, we should choose. The situation is ugly over there and in such situations, everyone can act pretty ugly.
Or perhaps, nonintervention is the way, I do believe Senator Rand Paul or at least, others, have talked about arming the Kurds. I’m sure I can find such quotes.
