Turkey Invades Syria, Backed By U.S.

syria safe zoneBy Brandon Turbeville

On Wednesday morning, Turkey abruptly launched an all-out military assault on Syria, sending in tanks, troops, and engaging in airstrikes, in concert with airstrikes from the United States, to the northern portions of Syria near the Turkey-Syria border under the guise of combating ISIS forces. At this time, the military operations seem focused around Jarablus.

According to the BBC, “A dozen Turkish tanks and other vehicles have rolled across the Syrian border after heavy shelling of an area held by so-called Islamic State (IS). Military sources told Turkish media 70 targets in the Jarablus area had been destroyed by artillery and rocket strikes, and 12 by air strikes.”

For those who may be wondering exactly what the Turkish goal might be, two points must be mentioned in regards to Turkey’s actions which should go some length to demonstrate that the Turks are still focused on destroying the Syrian government as well as preventing the establishment of a Kurdish enclave either in Syria or Turkey.

First, the Turkish military is acting as the frontal assault for “moderate” rebel forces like the FSA who are marching in directly behind the Turkish military to hold territory conquered by the Turks. Any association with the Free Syrian Army, a gaggle of Western-backed extremists indistinguishable from ISIS, should be a major warning sign to any informed observer that the goal is not to aid in the destruction of terrorist forces in Syria or to assist the Syrian government in its goal to do so. Second, the Turkish invasion was accompanied by American airstrikes which clearly indicates that the Turks are operating closely with the United States, which has been chomping at the bit to either directly destroy the Syrian government via military invasion or to create “buffer zones” and “safe zones” in the country to act as forward operating bases for future terrorist proxy operations.

Al-Masdar reports on the progress of the Turkish military offensive by writing:

The Turkish Special Forces, alongside the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Faylaq Al-Sham, reportedly captured their first village during this new offensive dubbed “Operation Euphrates Shield.”

According to Faylaq Al-Sham’s official media wing, their forces captured the village of Tal Katlijah after the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists quickly abandoned the area in order to reinforce Jarabulus.

ISIS has mostly abandoned the small area between Jarabulus and the Turkish border, leaving only small units to resist the advancing Turkish-backed rebels.

The Turkish-backed rebels are now attacking the hilltop village of Tal Sha’er, which is along the road to Jarabulus.

The Turk agenda here is also two-fold: On one hand, Turkey’s Erdogan wants to continue to work with NATO and the United States to destroy the secular government of Bashar al-Assad while, on the other hand, Turkey needs to do all it can do to prevent an autonomous Kurdish enclave on its border with Syria. An effective way to do this is to create a “buffer zone” between the Kurds and Turkey while, at the same, making sure that the dimensions of the “buffer zone” are the same as the “safe zone” desired by NATO two years ago in order to keep terrorist supply lines moving through Turkey and in to Syria. That narrow and porous jihadist corridor has become known as the Jarablus corridor, the same areas which the Turks are now invading and filling up with terrorists as we speak.

For its part, the Syrian government has condemned the Turkish invasion. As ABC News reports,

Syria’s government has denounced Turkish military incursion, describing it as Turkey’s “blatant violation” of Syrian sovereignty.

In a statement reported by state-run news agency SANA on Wednesday, the government says that “any move to combat terrorism on Syrian territories should have been coordinated with the Syrian government and army.”

The statement also calls for an immediate end to the Turkish “aggression,” which it says is being carried out under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

It says: “Fighting terrorism cannot be undertaken by ousting Daesh and replacing it with other terrorist organizations directly backed by Turkey.” Daesh is the Arabic language acronym for IS.

The YPG has likewise condemned the Turkish involvement in Syria, labeling it a “blatant aggression in Syrian internal affairs.”

Turkey’s move raises even more questions now regarding the nature of its recent “failed” coup as well as its relationship with Russia and the United States. A troubling new dimension has also been added to the Syrian crisis as the Turks have now officially invaded a sovereign country in an already volatile region. Undoubtedly, we will be watching these events closely.

  1. its biblical that the next war will start in Syria, how many factions or countries are fighting against each other there now? eventually it will escalate. the only thing that can save us now is prayer.

    • What, you think this will start a nuclear war? And if so can you elaborate how that might come about? Who would launch first-strike for instance?

      • I have read a lot of articles on the coming war, north korea has been threatening a first strike for years and they now have long range capability along with the short range that can be fired from a cargo ship. iran probably already has a nuclear weapon but will probably give it to a radical group to use so they won’t be blamed. china is gearing up for all out war and has also been threatening the u.s. for not allowing them to take over Taiwan and I think hong cong. many articles have been written on the fears Russia has of a u.s. first strike and has all but come out and said they will strike first. they are also preparing their citizens by building underground cities like the Chinese are doing. the u.s. is putting missiles in Poland again supposedly to defend against iran but its to defend against Russia. even in the u.s. they are building underground tunnels in the u.s. (videos from tunnels under Walmart) it seems the whole world is preparing for war, governments are trying to manipulate weather (some may think this a conspiracy theory but look up H.A.R.R.P.) read an article about thirty years ago how the Russians were sending microwaves into the atmosphere to change jet streams trying to make a warm water port in the mediterrean and since then the east coast weather has been drastically changing. the water shortage, is it possible that an entity is trying to stop food production whether it is the corporations who now own most of south America or the government for control. so a first strike? don’t know who will start it but the elites on all sides want to eliminate 90% of the population and what better way than a nuclear war. look at Ezekiel 38 and 39 while watching the news articles on turkey attacking Syria with u.s. planes, Russia attacking Syria (u.s. sponsored fighters) china is sending troops to Syria ….we have sat back and allowed God to be taken out of our schools and our government and wonder why he is standing back and not protecting us any more.

        • What if the war being launched in Syria is not a classic world war but the final war for our minds and what little freedom remains?

          • Syria is the last country that the rothchilds don’t have a bank to control the nation. it would seem that the accumulated conflicts would lead up to Armageddon as prophesied in the Bible. the final war for our minds and freedoms is always in the background with satan trying to defeat the last of the saints before Jesus comes back to settle it all. Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. pray, seek Jesus because its all in God’s plan to prove his word and let people see they still have a chance if they follow Him.

          • Syria’s central bank is tied to the Bank of International Settlements, the Rothschild mothership of international central banks. Syria has also been implementing IMF structural guidelines, for years, and formally signed on to UN Agenda 21, “neoliberalizing” Syria’s culture and economy since the at least the early 2000s. The Assad clan’s wealth (billions) is interwoven with global elite holdings. Yes, we wrestle with rulers of the darkness who don’t want the free world to see what’s headed our way.

          • thought they hadn’t got a rothchild bank yet, thanks for the information.

          • Syria has not signed the UN Agenda 21. All countries in attendance at the UN simply agreed to support it. The agreement was made via consensus and isn’t currently legally binding. Syria is not part of the IMF, it’s banks and stock exchange (DSE- The Damascus Securities Exchange) is state owned or private and I cannot find any information that says otherwise.

            All of the invasions that we were warned about by the General (can’t recall the name right now, Wesley I think) spoke of a plan of seven countries in five years, and all of them did NOT have a central bank controlled by London. That was the first thing they did in all of the nations they invaded. Established a London based central bank.
            I sometimes think blue579 is spreading disinformation.
            Much of this incremental imperialistic takeover is all about controlling the money. The US is so indebted to the banking cabal the only way they can work it off is to serve as the muscle for their world domination insanity and greed.
            Iran is another who is not controlled in this fashion and has been a target because of that for a long time. N Korea as well.
            When you follow the money it starts making sense.

          • That’s not correct, Syria is implementing the UN sustainability model that is Agenda 21, but nowhere near the level of progress of Iran and Russia who are far along into the planning and implementation, esp. Russia. I didn’t say Syria is “part of the IMF” or currently has an IMF loan, I said it has been implementing IMF structural agreements. I read the official documents of the IMF committee for Syria. The Syrian govt itself recently asked that the UN oversee its humanitarian corridors rather than Russia (said to be a “snub” but I don’t think that’s it either).

          • Gospel of Thomas: Jesus denounces anyone who put’s their spiritual development in the hands of others, be they priests, prophets or politicians. Truer words have never been spoken. Throughout history, look at the mess these priests, prophets and politicians have made of our beautiful world. They sell nothing but false hope, lies deceit, fear, death and destruction. Most of them truly are evil incarnate.

          • Common Sense | August 25, 2016 at 6:45 am |

            Iran and N Korea are still on the list.

          • It’s already too late for humanity. Look at the suffering western politicians have bestowed upon the people of secular Syria, fully supported by the western sheeple and never once did they threaten us, even now after all the death and destruction, Assad still hasn’t threatened the west, yet the harbingers of death and destruction (Evil Elitists and their puppet politicians) would have us believe he’s an evil dictator and half the stupid brain dead sheeple continue to believe every word of it, while applauding the death and destruction of Syria and it’s people.There’s no better teacher than first hand experience, Karma is a dish best served cold and the west deserves everything that’s coming it’s way. Ironically when the death and destruction arrives on our doorstep, the immoral brain dead sheeple will be the first to cry foul play.

          • Common Sense | August 25, 2016 at 7:03 am |

            You nailed it.
            When you tell the ugly truth people hate their hideous reflection and then blame you for showing them.
            Sadly America is going the same path that Germany did when led by the blood thirsty killers that stole power. People go into denial and even become apologist for their corrupt leaders, and that is where we are at. With the aid of technology, the control system has been able to accomplish things other dictators could only dream about.
            The only thing that should be happening in the US right now is mass arrests of the criminals we are up to our eyeballs in, but when you mention that to the people you either get the deer in the headlights look or distain, because we can’t arrest THEM, they have badges and titles. They are above the law.
            You’re right about the US deserving what we get, because other nations are not under the spell of insanity that we seem to be suffering from. They re not going to sit back and apologize for the criminals that lead us. They are going to strike,out of self defense.
            We might be dumb enough to believe the stupid ploy of our rogue people in DC and the pentagon attacking others and then turning around and pretending like we re the victim. They won’t fall for that. That stunt has been pulled too may times and the gig is up, and just like what you said,the American people are going to scream and cry how they are not at fault. It’s just like there are no good cops. If there were, you would see them arresting the bad ones. They just turn their heads and pretend not to see, just like we are doing with our criminal leaders.

          • Maybe it is hopeless with the masses brainwashed as much as they are. Humanity has been set at each other’s throats for countless generations and mass scale genocide has been another feature in all cultures. Who stopped the communists from murdering over 90 million of their own dissidents citizens in China, Russia, etc, the vast majority peaceful people? On the other hand, defeatism looks and smells a lot the learned helplessness we’ve been conditioned to our entire lives.

        • What Absolute nonsense. God has never protected anyone and there’s not a single shred of evidence that says otherwise. Stupid religious zealots have been waging war ever since God/Gods were invented. Slaughtering each other while appeasing their imaginary friend. Absolute insanity. I sincerely look forward to the day when all traces of God/Gods are eradicated from this Earth and the heavens and sanity is restored to this corner of the universe.

  2. Following the recent suicide bombing at a wedding in Turkey resulting in 51 deaths, the global lame stream media is portraying Turkey’s military incursions into Syria as a nation victimized by ISIS joining the global coalition to confront terrorism. We’re also told Turkey and Russia are becoming allies and Erdogan is dumping his apex elite handlers based in the US in retaliation for a coup instigated by Gulen. So, what’s going on, is it simply a US backed attack on the Assad government or more layers of obfuscation?

    Before the suicide bombing, the Turkish government was about to enter a peace agreement with the Kurds. This process has been delayed but is still on track as part of the process of giving the Kurds a homeland.

    • “global lame stream media”

      Sweet. I like it!

    • I dont trust Erdogan as he is no better than the US polly’s speaking with forked tongues.
      If I was Putin I would shoot down all the invading planes with those S500’s etc. with a warning first of course.

      • Agreed, Erdogan is no friend of the people – forked tongue. What if my premise is correct and all nation state leaders are part of the global elite mafia? Then this is all a grand stage play to manufacture consent for a global military force to “fight terrorism”. They simultaneously use it to track us all.

  3. Every time another of these deeper incursions happen at the hands of the elite ruling class, whatever side they’re on, it becomes that much more evident that the only way they will ever be stopped is when the rest of us around the world realize that we are not the enemy.

    And by “we” I mean the 99% of the planet.

    And when we do realize that we’re gonna have to get up off our couches and act in solidarity. And with meaningful purpose. Or none of us, our children or their children may survive the future. And not because of nuclear war. but because the 1% control everything we need to survive, while at the same time they’re destroying the environment.

    • Beautifully put. Had I been able to, I’d have up-voted your comment 100 times!

    • Almost 99% of the 99% either cannot or will not be distracted by getting off their couches and putting their butts into some kind of “solidarity”gear. The “we” referred to by James Stone are pathetically mind controlled and under-prepared to act on their own behalves. That’s the problem that guarantees destruction of the environment.

      • Observationally I have to agree. But that is no reason to give up on them. To stop trying to rally the troops so to speak. Is it?

        Many of those “we” roam the posts in these blogs, perhaps waiting for the right words, the properly-put motivation to move. Motivation you’re not supplying with an attitude like that.

        I prefer to be optimistic. I prefer at least not to lay down and quit.

        How about you?

    • Excellent post. You get it. We need to take the elite globalists out now!

      • Thanks brother! Yeah, if only we could muster up some significant support…

        If we can get Jill Stein elected that would be a really good start. They might make her time in office impotent, but they’d also be hard-pressed to do anything without her approval. That couldn’t be said I don’t think for any of the other candidates, including Johnson who as a libertarian is just as much a capitalist as the rest of them.

        Well meanwhile I guess we just keep pushing back! Let ’em know we’re watching them?

  4. And Turkey had the gall to shoot down a Russian plane for being in Turkish airspace for 17 seconds! So much for respecting borders!

  5. Sometimes I think it is hard to take some of this seriously because…
    Any day the financial crisis is going to ruin us.
    China is starting world war three.
    Russia is starting world war three.
    A new plague or virus is going to wipe us all out.
    Isis is ready to invade and kill us all.
    A race war is going to break out any day.
    A religious war is on the brink.
    Trump is going to get us all killed.
    Clinton is going to get us all killed.
    An asteroid is on its way.

    I’m sure there are some I’ve missed, but when you back up and start looking at it from a distance, it really starts looking pretty nuts.

    Maybe we should start concentrating on the people who are constantly trying to make us afraid.

  6. sorry you feel that way, yes I do see satan in a lot of things but I also see God in most things which is a comfort for me. I don’t know everything about what is happening in the world or why but I do know that God has a plan and we are all included in it being able to make choices to go in any direction we want and follow any God or god or not. so I will still pray to my God and believe He will fulfill his purpose in me and you regardless of what we think about it. maybe i’m not as smart as some people but that doesn’t mean I don’t reason like you do, I have just come to a different conclusion that God is real, does intervene in our lives, is with us now and will be there in the end.
