The fact that the majority of commenters in this thread are able to look through the propaganda and lies and see the situation for what it is is such a nice thing to see.

Which means only one thing - we are all wrong. IMO the US is lowkey targeting Turkey, while Russia plays along in the circus.

I dont claim to know whats going on over there... but I do know that the mainstream US narrative is complete bullshit, and I know that we have zero legitimate reasons for getting involved in a war over there.

I wouldnt be surprised if Turkey factors into all of this somehow, but I was under the impression that Turkey was one of the primary benefactors of the ISIS terrorists who have been tearing apart Syria?

Turkey, SA, Qatar, US, UK, France, Jordan, Israel, etc

Lots of state actors helped ISIS in some ways (for instance the US didnt bombed them for a while, hoping they would overthrow Assad, before Putin stepping in).

Turkey (and especially) Erdogan view themselves as protectors of muslim faith and virtues all over the world. I suspect that Turkey wont stay silent and inactive about the annexation of East Jerusalem and declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. IMO the US and Russia will split Syria ( a fake country anyway) in two, the US will get Kurdistan, while the Russians will take the Mediterranean part of Syria. In the past 15 years the US is silently taking out the neighbors of Israel and bringing chaos in the region. I dont think its coincidental.

On a side note, Trump is opening mocking muslims on twitter, and nobody in the US administration doesnt seem to care or out of shire politeness to throw a half-assed excuse for the sake of diplomacy...

Turkey invaded Syria a few months ago under the guise of clearing its border from the Kurish militancy threat, they cutrently hold swathes of Syrian soil in the north. What's funny is that US abandoned the Kurds and let them be driven from there without even raising the issue with Turkish officials. According to Turkish military almost 5000 Kurdish militants hace been killed since the invasion began.

You would not know of any of that if you listened to regular media though.

Btw the US said the they wouldnt intervene in Afrin prior to operation Olive Branch. AFAIK the YPG in Afrin is not under protection of the SDF (the US proxy in Syria). Manbij is the key IMO, the US says they wont back down from Manbij, Erdogan vows to "clear" it. Well see how that plays out.

I told you they would use the "humanitarianism" excuse. Now we wait and see if the American people bought it when polls come out.. Luckily, it doesn't seem like there are plans to send ground troops or long term air warfare. So it obv isn't the same situation as Iraq, thankfully..

President Trumpís re-election campaign on Monday celebrated what it says was a one-month decline of 600,000 people using food stamps.

The campaign attributed the data to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which administers the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP.

"Today the USDA announced a one-month reduction in food stamp enrollment of nearly 600,000 people, further adding to the overall reduction in food stamp enrollment of 2 million people in President Trumpís first year in office,Ē the campaign said in a Monday morning statement.
