Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced the start of Turkish military action in northern Syria. Turkish television reports that jets are carrying out airstrikes on Syrian Kurdish positions in the border town of Tal Abyad. Early video footage shows strikes hitting fields. But reports from the Kurdish-led Syrian democratic forces say the air strikes are causing "huge panic among the people." Before the strikes, Erdogan announced offensive "Operation Peace Spring" in two tweets.

Please imagine. Al-Qaeda captured an area from Mexico that is near the USA border. What would the USA do? Would they say its not our problem? Or would they destroy this area? This place, not the Kurdish Territory this is terror territory. Everybody knows Ypg is another name of Pkk. Although Pkk is a terror group that is defined as a terror group by the United Nations. They supported Ypg(pkk). Who made wrong? USA and other countries who supported terror group Or Turkey who wants to clear the border of his country from terrorism

This war is happening because of the US. They gave so many free weapons to PYD and formed an army at the border that became a threat for Turkey.

And so it begins....😔
If Trump has such a hard line on the Middle East then why did he just do a giant weapons deal with the Saudis and send troops there as well as start a drone strike (and call it off) on Iran along with heavy sanctions, etc? He wants to cherry pick his involvement in the Middle East even more than his predecessors.
