Anatolia news agency reported that the Turkish military hit Syrian government forces on Saturday, adding that the shelling had been in response to fire inflicted on a Turkish military guard post in Turkey’s southern Hatay region.Let's not mince words here.
Turkish artillery targeted Syrian forces again late on Saturday, according to a military source quoted by RIA Novosti. The attack targeted the town of Deir Jamal in the Aleppo Governorate.
The agency also cited details of an earlier attack on Syrian government army positions in northwestern Latakia.
“Turkey’s artillery opened fire on the positions of the Syrian Army in the vicinity of Aliya mountain in the northwestern part of the province of Latakia,” the source said.
Our so called allies (Turkey, Saudi Arabia & the rest of the GCC) have taken the measure of Obama and found him unimpressive, weak and passive. Because of this they feel able to act in ways that are not in our best interest but even worse risk escalating a terrible conflict.
If you think Turkey gives a damn about ISIS then you need to be drug tested. How will Russia respond? What about Assad? This will get much worse. As bad as the ME was when Bush left (and it was terrible), its going to fail in comparison to what Obama leaves the next president.
History will record that the seeds of the 3rd World War were sown on his watch.
