Now even Cameron and Hollande have lived themselves to the enlightenment: If you want to stop the flow of refugees from Syria, you have to solve the war in Syria. There was nothing about what they meant… But I guess they are clueless and will continue to fight a war with war. At least they know that it does not produce the positive results they are claiming, but it will be good for the “defence”-industry
Erdogan is now surfing on the wave of refugees flowing into Europe because he knows nobody in Europe will understand from which region a ethnical cleansed Kurd is coming. But as the midwife of ISIS / DESH he was very successful...
Turkish troops have now crossed the border into Iraq even which makes it abundantly clear that Erdogan is interested in an escalation to divert attention from his domestic political chaos. Barzani can not do very much against this Turkish invasion. During the winter in the cold mountainous Kurdish region of Iraq mechanised troops will not stay a change to archive their goals. Because he can not win his “war on terror” the next step will be that Erdogan will then also send troops across the border to Syria.
At this point it will be time to think about to exclude Turkey from NATO to stop him from political flying blind into a disaster. The PKK is on the terrorist list of the US and the EU. At the same time the US forces operating in Syria closely with allies of the PKK. Voice channels on both sides are now still open. And they must be used to bring a quick end to the fighting to Erdogan Neo-Ottoman dreams. If that is not tried, no one should be surprised if in half a year more of tens of thousands of people are running from jet another conflict into the direction of the EU.
