1/#Turkey had well established "soft power" lines of influence throughout the Greater #MiddleEast (North #Africa, Horn of Africa, Eastern #Mediterranean, etc.).
2/But now #Turkish leaders are ready to assume greater risk to assert overt military power in an expeditionary manner to expand #Turkey's influence, and therefore leverage, on conflicts beyond the country's near abroad (#Libya being farther than say #Cyprus or #Syria).
3/However #Turkish leaders don't want to risk significant casualties to their own forces in these expeditionary ops, whether far away like in #Libya or closer to home like in #Syria, when #Turkey's military has spent so much time and $$ building a proxy force of #Syrian fighters.

#BREAKING: An #USAF's MQ-9 Reaper drone used its Hellfire R9X to slice a top JIhadist commander in pieces in al-Bassuta, #Afrin, #Syria. First footage of the aftermath of the airstrike which left a commander of #AlQaeda affiliated #HTS (Hayat Tahrir al-Sham) & two others dead 👇
This Operation was jointly carried-out by the #CIA & #USAF. The Hellfire R9X managed to turn targets into mince meat without causing any harm to any individual outside the car. It is reported that the dead #HTS commander was cooperating with #Turkey backed #SNA terrorists.
Video shows that the car which was targeted had high speed in the #Azaz-#Afrin road in the northern countryside of #Aleppo outskirt, North of #Syria. Not any other car or individual which was in the road at that time was hit. The missile precisely killed the targets.

1. After the Mosul hostages were released in 2014 to the present, #ISIS and #Turkey have been mutual affiliates. That's 100% certain. @SenateGOP @SenateDems @HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats @FBIWFO @NewYorkStateAG @MarkHerringVA @DefenseIntel @CIA @ODNIgov @NSAGov
2. I defy any two people at any US intelligence of law enforcement to match my reporting on the war to defeat ISIS in Syria starting in 2014 before @BarackObama jumped in. I watched it all in real time and memorialized it in @Twitter that suspended me when Turkey invaded #Afrin.
3. Turkey is ISIS and if @RTErdogan comes here he is subject to arrest for genocide under 18 USC 1091. I doubt he'll be arrested. But IMO he could be arrested under both US and international law. There is no immunity. See Nuremberg UN Resolution.

1. The proposed agreement in #Syria marks the final end of the #Ezidi minority. After #Afrin was occupied by #Turkey & its Islamists mercenaries, the same will now occupy the remaining villages in Syria. The #Yezidis remaining in Syria will be forced to flee.
2. Ironically, so far about 40 #Ezidi families from #Syria have been ethnically cleansed by #Turkey/#Islamists & fled to #Shingal in #Iraq; a region where the local #Yezidi population continues to suffer the genocide crimes committed by ISIS.
3. The #Ezidis have thus been expelled from almost their entire homeland in recent centuries (#Iran, #Turkey, #Syria). Only in #Iraq does a significant community still exist, but it has been emigrating increasingly for years.

1. #SyriaWarCrimes
We're going to have a decade or more of murder trials and suits for the many Turkish and US politicians and service members who were complicit in the #Rojava #Syria #WarCrimes. We need to identify verify preserve with a post and preserve all the evidence.
2. Someone told me #TawanCeng is "war crimes" in Kurdish. I have some #Afrin posts with that tag. We need to pick a tag and have every photo and story attempt to give geo-location date & time and as much other information as possible. We may want to have a tag for enemy phones
3. like #EP and maybe last four of the phone's serial number. My point is this, we are going to charge everyone who touched this genocide. And the better our evidence is the better the odds of successful prosecutions. I'm open to suggestions and my @timinhonolulu.com

Never has the self-suicide of #Syria's mainstream opposition been more clear than in recent days.

#Afrin was really bad, but this NE incursion (its manner; its consequences etc.) is truly beyond the pale -- in truth, what we've witnessed is a #Turkish campaign through-&-through.
It's clear now that the Dec 2016 loss of #Aleppo - in large part due to #Turkey selling it out to #Russia - was *the* turning point.

Opposition factions lost any sense of autonomy of action & over the years that followed, everyone but #JFS-#HTS & #AlQaeda existed *for* #Ankara.
An #American presence in NE #Syria kept at least some of this #Turkish ambition under wraps (just ), but #Trump's naive (or malicious?) "green light" decision after speaking with #Erdogan let everything loose.

Only now are we seeing the consequences -- and they're not yet clear.

Thread/ These are the main points in the agreement between the #SDF and the Syrian government. #Syria
1/ The abolishment of the #SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces), with all the current Kurdish forces and military groups joining the 5th Corps (Assault Legion) under Russian control
2/ A solid guarantee of full Kurdish rights in the new Syrian constitution with autonomy which will be agreed upon by Kurdish leadership & Syrian state.

Avant même le début de l'opération anti terroriste de la #Turquie au nord de la #Syrie contre la milice marxiste kurde #PKK classée terroriste, une grande opération de propagande a été lancée dans tous les médias occidentaux!

Voici un thread sur les éléments de cette propagande
1. Dans tous les articles ou émissions sur cette opération, on annonce que la cible est bien "LES KURDES"

L'objectif est de diaboliser l'opération et la #Turquie en la montrant contre un groupe ethnique, longtemps persécuté et non contre un groupe classé terroriste, le #PKK...
Hors la #Turquie est le pays non seulement qui a le plus de citoyens kurdes mais qui accueille 300 000 réfugiés syriens kurdes!!

Rien que le parti de #Erdogan a 40 députés kurdes et bcp de kurdes votent AKP

Pourquoi donc la Turquie attaquerait "les kurdes"? Quel intérêt ?

in the 19th and early 20th Centuries, Russia and G-Britain were competing for influence over the Ottoman Empire.After the latter's defeat in1918, the best solution was to allow the establishment of the Turkish Republic and not to be subordinated to either Russia or Britain.
#SDF
The two countries simply and brutally resolved this problem, and the cost was a complete abandonment of minorities. What is happening these days between #Russia and #NATO regarding the "backward" rivalry to win Turkey threatens the rest of the peoples of the historic Mesopotamia.
The world is watching what is going on in NE Syria. Turkey invades not to achieve political goals, but to complete the destruction of the culture of Mesopotamia. This is not a lecture in history, but since 1923, this country had been founded on panic from two things:

1/#SDF chief Gen. Mazloum: (1)Sent a letter to #Trump asking for mediation with #Turkey; (2) Requested a No Fly Zone to stop #Turkish airstrikes over #Syrian airspace. The U.S. not stopping Turkish airstrikes over the SDF Zone in N/E #Syria is the major source of tension now.
2/#SDF chief Gen Mazloum: "When our soldiers see how their mothers and fathers are being attacked and killed, and #Turkey is using our airspace to do it, that makes them angry with the United States." #Syria
3/#SDF chief Gen Mazloum: Still time for mediation with #Turkey to end the fighting in N/E #Syria. The SDF demands that #Turkish airstrikes stop (after US closes airspace), Turkish artillery strikes also. Also an end to cross-border raids with TSK and #Syrian rebel proxies.

1. America's & now @POTUS Trump's problem is the need to show tough guy response to actions like what Iran did at #SaudiAramco. We love big shows of US planes and forces but then when the butcher's bill comes we regret it. To deal with Iran Trump must think strategically.
2. Harm Iran in areas that it seeks to advance its influence. The easiest and most obvious is to run Iran out of Syria. I have no idea if the SDF will assist but in any event, using small diameter bombs on all IRGC and Hezbollah forces will create terror in their ranks.
3. And we need to tell Erdogan that he chose poorly in Syria and his alliance with Russia and Iran means his forces must now leave #Afrin. Do that and I'd bet the SDF would help run Iran out of Dodge. 😎 @WHNSC @WhiteHouse

1. The Turks who are actively working with both Al-#Qaeda and #ISIS will never stop their threats against US forces and our Syrian partners because we continue to allow them to throw all #Kurds into the Turks' racist basket. The only solution is for @StateDept to de-list the PKK.
2. The #PKK has never threatened the US. We should recognize that the Turkish apartheid state has created an ongoing civil war and deal with the combatants in ways that are in the US best interest but using the "terrorist" designation as a favor for an ally is counter-productive.
3. When we charge terrorist violations we are able to prove an element of the offense by simply proving the person was a member of a listed group. But listing must be of a terrorist organization. Courts do not challenge the elements of the listing because generally they are met.
