Interestingly even though we fall out with Turkey all the time they have just restored their Ambassador to Israel
Erdogan has visions of an Ottoman Empire again
The Kurds are being armed by the US and Israel and possibly the UK they never went away they are defiant to the last
I like Turkey , I like the People , I love their food however their leader is despotic in his actions
These are wars without end , the Turks have the far more superior military but are unable to bring their power to bear on a group who know their terrain like the back of their hand , this is like so many counter insurgency wars going to go on and on until both sides agree to meet some of the terms of the other .
I am sure for Erdogan such killings he sees as an advantage and tool to allow him to continue this battle until the day comes (as they always do) that Erdogan is out of power and a new head see's advantage in peace rather than an endless conflict there is nothing to do
It appears that the Turkish army messed up and in effort to pass the buck blamed the PKK
Slighty off topic the Israeli security services have just busted a Turkish operation to supply illicit funds to Hamas , last month they interecepted $4 million in cash from Iran for weapon development
...the Turks have the far more superior military but are unable to bring their power to bear on a group who know their terrain like the back of their hand...
Sounds like Vietnam.
