There are already a lot of Kurds in the 800,000 refugees en route to Germany now.

When the Kurds get to Germany they automatically qualify for refugee status as Syrian war refugees. :)

As far as Turks go, there are already millions of Turks in Germany.

I wonder if Obama will continue to supply the Syrian Kurds with US air support and military aid now that they are being attacked by Turkey?

Considering that US military aid to the Turks is being used to attack the Kurds, it seems only right that US military aid to the Kurds be used to attack the Turks in return. :lol:

Maybe this repression of the media is part of this new Turkish aggressive foreign policy but it also can be part of the more general digging in by governments as the world becomes more unstable and more competitive.

Turkey Says Has ’Every Right to Intervene’ if No Syrian Kurd Withdrawal
By News Desk - 25/08/2016

The Syrian Kurdish forces “must move to the east of the Euphrates and Turkey is following this very closely,” Defense Minister Fikri Isik told NTV television.

He was speaking a day after Ankara launched an offensive in Syrian town of Jarablus.

“If this withdrawal doesn’t happen, Turkey has every right to intervene,” Isik added.

[ A strong WAR warning against Syrias Kurdish People (YPG) add by M_B_S]

But the YPG told AFP in Beirut it had no interest in listening to ultimatums laid down by Turkey.

“The YPG are Syrians and they are present on Syrian land — Turkey cannot impose restrictions on the movements of Syrians on their land,” said YPG spokesman Redur Xelil.

Turkish invasion troops open fire on Syrian Kurds in Syria


OPERATION EUPHRATES SHIELD UNDERMINES KURDISH HOPES FOR AUTONOMY IN SYRIA


On August 24, Turkey, in close cooperation with the United States, destroyed the hopes of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) to link up Kurdish cantons in northern Syria and de facto set up a semi-independent state along the Turkish border. The Turkish Armed Forces and militant groups loyal to Ankara entered Syria, supported by the US Air Force, and seized the strategic city of Jarablus and nearby villages from ISIS. First clashes with usage of small arms, military equipment and artillery, were reported between the Turkish-led forces and the forces loyal to the PYD (they operate under the brand of the so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces or SDF”) south of Jarablus late on this day.

"At least 20 civilians were killed and 50 others wounded by Turkish artillery fire and air strikes on Sunday morning at Jeb el-Kussa [a village south of Jarablus]," said Rami Abdel Rahman of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a Britain-based monitor with a network of sources on the ground.

Conclusion

It becomes readily apparent, after a mere tertiary review of the events, that the limited Turkish operation to combat ISIS is a false narrative to cover the reality that Turkey is invading Syria with its Islamic proxies to secure its own national goals. These goals are those of the corrupt Erdogan regime only, and not those of the Turkish people. Turkish security will not be served by continuing the spiral of violence and injustice in Syria, nor by filling the pockets of the Erdogan family and their mafia allies through money made from war profiteering and illicit smuggling. Turkey and the United States are hoodwinking the Turkish and Kurdish people, and feeding them a lie that has convinced them to subordinate their own interests. Turkey defeated the non-existent ISIS threat in Jarablus, which evaporated within hours, and will capitalize on the door that has been opened to them as much as possible. Russia will rue the day it trusted Erdogan again, and the Kurds must learn the truths of the past. The United States will continue to use them to its own ends until the Kurds finally stop acting like the battered spouse in the relationship.

More Background
http://rudaw.net/english/middleeast/syria/290820168
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—Citizens of Kobane and Cizire cantons in Rojava, northern Syria have taken to the streets to protest Turkey’s incursion in Jarablus and the international community’s silence.

In Qamishli, protesters carried banners denouncing Turkey’s invasion of Syria and the failure of the international community to condemn it. One banner read, “Rojava is a land of democracy, freedom and honour – it will be a grave for Erdogan,” referring to the Turkish president.

Jinha news reported that thousands of people were in the streets.

The Movement for a Democratic Society (TEV-DEM), the coalition governing the autonomous region of Rojava in northern Syria, issued a statement accusing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of trying to stop the march for freedom and democracy in the region and warned that not only Kurds but all societies were at risk from the Turkish incursion into Syria.
