See #Leaked #Trump Letter to #Erdogan on #Syria Op: This Confirms What Trump Had Publicly Said On his Conversations with #Turkey’s Erdogan. But It Also Contradicts What Turkey President #Erdogan Has Been Telling the Media & Public. This does not look good for Turkey.
Let’s see what kind of explanation will be provided by #Turkey Government here today (It is morning here in Turkey). It is very clear that #Trump was tough & warned #Erdogan on #Syria. On the other hand, the claim by Turkish Pres. That Trump supported him & assured him: False.
#WhiteHouse Confirms That “The Letter” is Authentic.

Quand j'ai vu passer cette lettre de #Trump à #Erdogan datée de jeudi dernier, j'étais sûr du canular. Ce n'en est pas 1 d'après @katierogers journaliste Maison Blanche du @nytimes. Lisez là, elle montre pourquoi tous les chefs d'Etat veulent prendre #Trump seul à seul.
@katierogers @nytimes 2) Là encore, tout y est absolument, tel qu'annoncé par #Trump depuis 2015:
. l'obsession du deal, sans AUCUNE notion de contexte: massacre ou Groënland, tout se négocie.
. l'obsession de la toute puissance: négocier pour se mettre en valeur soi plutôt que des intérêts nationaux
@katierogers @nytimes 3)…on retrouve aussi cette conviction de #Trump ancrée dans cette lettre à #Erdogan, par cette obsession du "deal", que tout peut et doit se régler de bille à bille, sans préparation, "entre hommes" (Don't be a tough guy), hors de toutes les normes bureaucratiques de #diplomatie

1. "More people say openly that #Erdogan's attitude reminds them of #Hitler."
Several hundred people, including several dozen civilians, have been killed in #Syria since the beginning of the #Turkish attack. About 200,000 people had to leave their homes.
2. Drastic executions of civilians are carried out. #ISIS fighters are escaping from prisons with the help of the #Turkish army. The whole world watches Erdogan's actions in disbelief and fear. Many countries and organizations are taking action against the Turkish operation.
3. #Trump, who probably wants to regain his image by imposing sanctions on three Turkish ministers, also belongs to them.
In addition, #Turkey may face further consequences:
#UEFA is sharply responding to the political provocations of Turkish players in the match against France.

1/ “This is one of the most serious Iran sanctions violations we have seen” - U.S. Justice Dept. official on indictment of Turkey's Halkbank on sanctions violations. Important development via @EricLiptonNYT
@EricLiptonNYT 2/ The charges against Halkbank come as Trump's administration "sought ways to project that it was taking a tough line with Turkey after Trump effectively signaled this month that the United States would not stand in the way of Turkey’s desire to send forces into northern Syria."
@EricLiptonNYT 3/ If the Halkbank case goes to trial in N.Y., it could mean a return to the witness stand for Reza #Zarrab, the Turkish-Iranian gold trader who pleaded guilty, has been cooperating with the U.S. and testified against a bank official, Hakan Atilla, who was convicted last year.

#Guardian #UK Seize On Opportunity (#Syria Op) to Bash #Turkey’s President #Erdogan & Advocate for Gov change. This types of meddling by the West has the exact opposite effect on Turks. Don’t they know by now?!- - -…
When Western #MSM, #Soros Media & Neoliberal Think-Tanks come out overtly & meddle with #MiddleEast Countries governments they have the exact opposite effect on the people of these nations. Sometimes I wonder if they “intend” to use reverse psychology for the #Opposite outcome?!
... Because they can’t be that stupid- they surely know the perception that creates & the opposite effect it has. So is this their method to actually support who they say they oppose? Think about it.

Fino a oggi:

- nessun colpo è stato sparato dall'esercito di #Erdogan contro l'esercito di #Assad e viceversa.
- 250.000 persone sono in fuga
- il confederalismo democratico è stato falcidiato
- l'Isis festeggia


#Rojava, #Turchia, #Erdogan

1. i dittatori guadagnano terreno
2. i terroristi (quelli veri) guadagnano terreno
3. la popolazione ne subisce le conseguenze
4. la democrazia perde

E' il "triangolo vizioso" di @iyad_elbaghdadi

Ora potete:

1. continuare a giocare a soldatini senza curarvi di altro, indossando una maglietta - non importa quale;
2. rendervi conto di quanto non contate un cazzo e ragionare di conseguenza

Do I read the latest news correctly? All of a sudden, since this morning, #Turkey’s publicized goal to transfer 2+ Million #Syrian refugees to #Syria, has “Dropped” to 1 Million. All headlines today give this “1 million” as the magic number, instead of the orig 2+ mil.
Is this - tactic to massage audience with 1 Million, then slowly make that half a million, so that when the final deal is in for let’s say only 100K, people won’t express shock & Buy into “Mission Accomplished” Line On #Syria Op? Just Asking😉
Here’s the link to another news article massaging the viewers on 1 Million: ”#Turkey to send back to 1 mn refugees to #Syria: #Erdogan, Middle East News”…

Ich widerspreche Herr @juergenhardt ,

man hat sich unnötig abhängig gemacht und knickt nun ein, bevor man etwas tut. DIESE Türkei, diese Führung in der Türkei als verlässlich zu bezeichnen, und sie bloß nicht zu verärgern, damit sie verlässlich bleibt, ist unglaublich. 1/7
Die Türkei WAR mal ein verlässlicher Partner. Die Türkei WAR mal ein Europa zugewandtes Land. Jetzt ist diese Türkei #Erdoganistan und erinnert mehr an osmanisches Großmachtsgehabe. DAS sind nicht die Werte, die ein verlässlicher Partner mit sich bringt! Und auch hier trägt 2/7
die EU eine große Mitschuld. Statt vor Erdogan die Türkei als einen echten Beitrittskandidaten zu behandeln, ließ man sie am langen Arm verhungern. Man wollte sie nie wirklich. Jetzt bekommt man die Packung für den Autokraten, der auch mit dieser Blamage durch die EU Wahlkampf3/7

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.

In an earlier thread I had explained the complex history of #Kurds:

I will explain why #Trump withdrew from Northern #Syria and now intends to withdraw from Syria entirely. This is a geopolitical masterstroke that kills several birds with one stone.
Our starting point has to be his map. #Kurds now control a wide swathe of Syrian territory - more than they have perhaps in their entire history. A significant part of those areas has large Sunni Arab populations.

The Arabs do not want to be ruled by #Kurds but have no choice.
To the West, you have areas under the control of the Assad regime. To the North you have hostile #Turkey. To the East you have KRG Kurds who are friendly with Erdogan and do not like the YPG Kurds. To the south east, you have Shia Arabs who are mildly hostile to #Kurds.

Hatte eben ein sehr interessantes Gespräch, was ich hier so auf #Twitter noch nicht gefunden habe, nämlich den überaus finsteren #Schachzug, den Trump mit der Aktion vollzogen hat!

Der Gedankengang wird etwas länger. 🤔 (1/20)
(Meine) Behauptung:

"#Trump hat die #EU in eine #Patt-Situation gebracht & verfolgt im Endeffekt einen geplanten #Verteidigungskrieg gegen #Russland" (2/20)
Der Rückzug der #US-Streitkräfte mit dem "Blahblah" ggü #Erdogan war strategisch genauso geplant.

#Erdogan ist charakterlich schwach genug, in diese #Honigfalle zu latschen. Außerdem muss er sich wegen seiner Wiederwahl in seinem Land als der großer Macker behaupten. (3/20)

1. @BarackObama set the stage to defeat #ISIS. I begged him in 2014 to support the Syrian #Kurds & he did. @POTUS @realDonaldTrump took over and slightly increased the support that was provided under Obama plan. But Trump takes money from #Putin and #Erdogan through Trump Towers
2. Istanbul through this guy, Mehmet Ali Yalçında, and through him, Putin and Erdogan bribed Trump to betray America and our Syrian allies and allowed Erdogan to free ISIS less than a month after ISIS head Al-Baghadadi ordered Erdogan to do it. Trump knew of Erdogan's conspiracy
3. with Al-Baghdadid and agreed to it. That makes Trump legally a terrorist affiliate and ISIS co-conspirator as a matter of law. @FBIWFO @NSAGov.

This is the case that @SpeakerPelosi @RepAdamSchiff should pursue. In his trial let the @SenateGOP vote for Trump as a member

[1] That is what the Leader of the Free World has done with his ill-considered decision: hospital bombing #Assad & hospital bombing #Putin are supposed to protect #Kurdish hospitals in #Syria from hospital bombing #Erdogan.
[2] Minorities have been suffering under the Assad regime for decades. The US President has now driven them into the arms of their executioners to escape ethnic cleansing. The #Ezidis should therefore consider giving up their homeland in #Syria altogether, as they did in #Turkey
[3] With only some 800,000 members worldwide, the #Ezidis have no choice but to leave their homeland in order to survive and escape the endless wars, in which they have no chance of survival.

My two cents on #Kurds-Assad deal:
1) on paper, it aims to push #Turkey back from #Syria border but in reality #Russia is signalling to TR that t/ road to neutralizing YPG/PKK passes thru Damascus &thru talks w/ Kurds. So, Russians are providing TR w/ a taste of 1998 Adana pact?!
2) Russia is seeking to convince #Turkey that Moscow can fruitfully mediate btw Ankara & YPG/PKK to a) prevent war in N Syria by creating TR's buffer zones & b) help dampen TR's security concerns by deploying Syrian army in #Manbij, #Kobani & possibly elsewhere. TR's reaction..👇
3) Unless there is a bigger deal btw US-#Turkey, Ankara would prefer to have Syrian troops in the border than YPG/PKK. This depends on effectively reviving/modifying the Adana pact. If implemented swiftly & safely,the deal might (long-term) drag TR into rapprochement w/ Damascus.

Since 2012, the Turkish intelligence service, MIT, under Erdogan’s direction, has provided resources and material assistance to ISIS. ISIS fighters captured by pro-U.S. Kurds showed Turkish passport stamps, boasting of direct assistance from 🇹🇷authorities.…
In 2016, Wikileaks published an archive of 58,000 emails documenting the involvement of Erdogan’s son-in-law, Berat Albayrak, in helping ISIS market #oil stolen from Syria and Iraq. Until the publication of the emails, Albayrak had denied any involvement in the illicit oil trade.
Sümeyye #Erdogan, daughter of the Turkish president, reportedly set up an entire medical corps, including a hospital to treat wounded #ISIS fighters in Sanlurfa, a city in Southeastern Turkey close to the Syrian border. #TrumpBetrayedOurAllies #TrumpBetrayedAmerica

#BREAKING: I just received confirmation that #US Army Special Forces are forced by #US Government to block the roads to #Manbij on #Syria Arab Army. Possibly that #Trump has already made a deal with #Erdogan! But things might change tonight!
It is also possible that #USArmy SOF has temporarily blocked the roads in-order to evacuate heavy equipment it had in its observation posts around #Manbij. Or perhaps they still try to convince #SDF to take-over remaining important #ISIL commanders imprisoned in #Manbij prison?!
#BREAKING: #VOA's journalist who is on the ground in NE #Syria is now witnessing that how #US has stopped #Syria Arab Army from preventing massacre of the Kurds in #Manbij by #Turkish Army & its terrorists. #US Special Forces have stopped #Syrian Army!

@realDonaldTrump please consider

#Erdogan is conducting an ethnic cleansing
Turkey is committing numerous war crimes
#ISIS prisoners are escaping
We are complicit now
Even if only by inaction…
#Turkey has been threatening this for 2 years
We've negotiated to stop or contain it

The Kurds are an ally against ISIS
But Turkey is a NATO ally by treaty
Though they haven't acted like one for a long time
We have no mechanism to remove them fm NATO…
The PKK has been conducting attacks in Turkey for a long time

Turkey could have invoked Art. 5 of the NATO Treaty saying all members must respond to an attack on one…

They have gotten NATO collective defense help previously

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 ?

1. Why Trump can't stop the #Turkish attack on #Christians and #Kurds in Syria:

#Putin and #Erdogan own him and his family. @FBIWFO @DefenseIntel @CIA @ODNIgov @RepAdamSchiff @MarkWarner @DefenseIntel @EsperDoD
2. Here is the Trump Giuliani link the heart of the NYC Putin Trump criminal enterprise I p.
3. But it's not just @Trumphotels: It's about all of Trump's money from the Russians beyond the Hotels.

Erdogan is helping Putin run Trump as Kremlin intel asset. The damage is now done and likely too late to reverse course for Trump. Here is how they did it.

1. @TheDemocrats are blowing the opportunity to remove Trump. We all ready have what we need to #impeach. At trial when a defendant admits it, you shut up and sit down. The thing that will REMOVE @POTUS is Syrian Christian Kurdish Genocide for the Jihadist @trpresidency #Erdogan.
2. Every one of the @HouseDemocrats & @SenateDems must say address this: "Trump must stop genocide of #Christians and #Kurds and not exchange their lives for money from his Istanbul property." Do that every time they get a microphone.
3. Force the @SenateGOP @HouseGOP to deal with it. They are already doing it and credit to them. Trump has lost @FoxandFriends on this issue. @SpeakerPelosi we can have 70% demanding his removal in 1 week. You know how fast people turned on Nixon. The #Evangelicals are against

1- Llegué a Rojava el 09-10. Hace un mes y medio que tengo el billete. A las 17 llegué a casa de mi hermana en #Tirbespiye, 30km de mi ciudad #Qamishlo. La operación turca contra mi gente y tierra había empezado a las 16h.
2- Pensaba que sería como siempre: unos ataques concretos y palabras vacías de #Erdogan. Pero, desgraciadamente, estaba equivocada. Esto no es guerra, es un genocidio.
3- la aviación bombardea diferentes ciudades y pueblos de la frontera de unos 600km. Las Fuerzas kurdas responden a ataques, pero nuestras fuerzas no son el segundo ejército de la #OTAN.

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.
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:
