Washington supports Turkey’s Erdogan’s anti-Syrian Kurds bloodshed

The Flowers of Rojava – A Feminist Revolution in Northern Syria (TRAILER)

5 November 2015

I am producing, with a small but very motivated team, a documentary on the situation of women in Rojava, the self-administered [mainly Kurdish] region in the North of Syria. This is the video trailer for our crowdfunding campaign.

Many politicians in many countries don’t often tell the truth. However, United States Vice President Joseph Biden did that at least once.

Mr Biden told Harvard University students in 2014 that Middle Eastern US allies such as Turkey strengthened extremist groups like ISIS in their bid to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Now, however, it looks like Mr Biden is betraying that moment of honesty.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

US calls on Syrian Kurds to withdraw

These Syrian Kurds are the only force effectively fighting ISIS terrorists. However, the Erdogan regime in Turkey hates them, and has fired artillery shells at them before, and has otherwise helped ISIS. Today, Turkish soldiers have crossed the Syrian border to attack Jarablus city, to prevent Syrian Kurds from entering it.

Today, 16:58

The US vice president, Joe Biden, has asked the Kurdish militias in northern Syria to withdraw behind the Euphrates river. If they do not do that, then the US will not “under any circumstances” support them. …

The Kurds expelled IS earlier this month from the southern city Manbij. Manbij is west of the Euphrates. Turkey therefore demands that the Kurds withdraw and for that, they now receive support from the US.

This blog has reported how happy the women of Manbij were when Syrian Kurds and their Syrian Arab allies drove away the ISIS reign of terror from Manbij, and the women were free again to dress the way they liked without fear of ISIS killing them. If Erdogan or the Joseph Biden of 2016 get their way in Manbij, then the women will have to fear another reign of terror, by ISIS or by a similar gang.

Biden meets with Erdogan, backs Turkish invasion of Syria: here.

With support from the US Air Force and military “advisers,” Turkish soldiers expanded their invasion of northern Syria Thursday: here.

On Wednesday, US Vice President Joseph Biden arrived in Turkey to announce, at a joint press conference with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, that the United States military would directly support Turkey in its incursion into northern Syria: here.

    Turkish troops in a bid to capture Isis-held town

    by James Tweedie

    TURKEY invaded northern Syria yesterday with US military and diplomatic backing, striking at both Islamic State (Isis) and Kurdish forces.

    Turkish troops and up to 20 tanks accompanied by extremist insurgents pulled from fronts in the Syrian civil war to capture Jarabulus, the key Isis-held border town in the north-east of Aleppo province.

    The “Euphrates Shield” operation secured the town and the village of Keklijah three miles to the west by the afternoon.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the offensive would target “terrorist groups like Daesh (Isis) and PYD,” referring to the Democratic Union Party whose military wing are the People’s Protection Units (YPG) of Jojava.

    The Syrian government and the PYD immediately condemned the “flagrant violation” of its sovereignty.

    The Foreign Ministry in Damascus said: “What is happening in Jarabulus now isn’t fighting terrorism as Turkey claims; rather it is replacing one type of terrorism with another.”

    PYD co-president Saleh Muslim warned: “Turkey will lose in the Syrian quagmire just like Isis.”

    The YPG claimed the Turks were deliberately shelling and bombing Kurdish districts in the town and had killed 29 civilians, and forced 3,000 to flee, while wounding one guerilla.

    The PYD’s Hawar news agency claimed the invasion force included terrorist groups such as the Levant Conquest Front — al-Qaida in Syria — and the CIA-armed Nour al-Din al-Zinki that beheaded a Palestinian refugee boy in Aleppo last month.

    The latest escalation came less than 48 hours after the US imposed a no-fly-zone over northern Syria, where some 100 of its troops have been acting as advisers to the Kurdish YPG militia.

    In an indication of the invasions objectives, US Vice- President Joe Biden told the YPG to withdraw east of the Euphrates river — echoing threats by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

    The YPG “must as soon as possible cross to the east of the Euphrates. That’s what the US promised,” Mr Cavusoglu said. If not, “we will do what is necessary.”

    Mr Biden said the YPG faced losing US military support that helped them capture Manbij — a few miles south of Jarabulus — after a two-month siege.

    Speaking after flying in to Ankara for talks with the government, Mr Biden said: “they cannot — will not — under any circumstance get American support if they do not keep that commitment,” to withdraw.

    An unnamed senior US official travelling with Mr Biden confirmed that the US-led coalition — which includes the RAF — was supporting the Turkish invasion.

    On Friday US jets invaded Syrian air space on the pretext that Syrian planes attacking YPG forces trying to seize the north-eastern city of Hassakeh might hit its troops — hundreds of miles from the fight against Isis in Aleppo.

    Stop the War convener Lindsey German condemned the intervention, saying: “This is yet another dangerous move in the many-sided conflict in which Turkey and its Nato allies have long been involved.

    “Turkey’s war against the Kurds has been longstanding,” she pointed out.

    “Its past support for Isis has included allowing it to cross the Turkish border to sell oil.”
