“In my estimation, nearly 1 million people have died in Syria. These deaths are still continuing without exception for children, women and men. Where is the United Nations? What is it doing? Is it in Iraq? No. We preached patience but could not endure in the end and had to enter Syria together with the Free Syrian Army,” said Erdogan, as reported by Hurriyet Daily News. The Free Syrian Army is a moderate rebel group. As Quoted in Breitbart News
Everyone is crapping their pants tonight about Erdogan's admission that his military is in Syria for the express purpose of removing Assad. They suspect that this is prelude to a final attack on Damascus with erstwhile ally US.
The greencrow flies high, gets a macro view, and has come up with another analysis. Erdogan has admitted guilt in an effort to "plea bargain" with newfound friend....and coup protector extraordinaire, Vladimir Putin. By this admission of guilt...this member of NATO has implicated the rest of NATO and in particular, the US. Last I heard, the UN charter forbids attacking another sovereign nation without provocation or in self defense.
So, Turkey has implicated the US in a bald face grab for territory and elimination of (yet another) rightful, legitimate ruler. So, now if Turkey withdraws from Syria....which I predict it will....it leaves the US and the Ziofascist proxies "guilty by association" and "twisting in the wind".
So then....what do we have here...with Turkey's admission of guilt and attempt to "plea bargain"?
Yet another checkmate by the old chess master [and Master of International Law], Vladimir Putin!
