Women are perfect for the military in many respects actually.

1. They can survive off far worse food (get more energy from food), and they need about half as many calories.
2. Their immune systems are stronger, so they can fight off infection better.
3. They can survive adverse environments better. Lack of water/heat slows them down far less than men.
4. Men tend to under-estimate them.
5. They aren't as lazy.

So if you're not asking them to hike hundreds of miles and are fighting a defensive war where you don't have to shift so much stuff around they are pretty perfect for holding a position with few supplies etc.

S - As someone once offered: have 3 all women battalions. Being housed together eventually their "monthly cycles" would sync. That way one would always be dealing with PMS: a truly frightening rapid response unit. LOL.

Russia will love that. It gives them an excuse to build up their own forces in Syria to protect Assad and the Alawites. Not Russia, not fighting Nato in what is not Syria anymore?

That's an M48 Patton in the photo, Turkey's main heavy battle tank. The US has already sold over 3,000 of these angry puppies to the Turks. War is Good . . .

. . . for business! We desperately need new sales and to help our loyal ally replace those old war dogs. What better way than to gin up another pointless war? It's our job.

some more headache for the US ,
Turkey is shelling the YPG ( Syrian kurds) while the US is relying on them to do the ground fighting around Raqqah and al thawrah were thing were rather going well ,
as Cog mentioned the kurds are about the only ones worth a dime as fighters , now they are reassessing their options
the Kurds are the yellow tags

sparky - Got a lot more serious yesterday. The Turks only gave the US forces working with those Kurds a one hour notice before attacking the unit. Killed 20 Kurds and no US casualties. First time the Turks inflict casualties on our troops it will be interesting to see President Trump reaction. Especially with the Turks trying to make nice with Putin. I would hope this close call warrants a serious phone call from someone high up the chain of command.

Press release on Turkish airstrikes against Iraq and Syria

867-26-04-2017

en-GB1 ru-RU1
Reports coming in say that the Turkish air force carried out airstrikes on the night of April 25 against Iraqi and Syrian regions bordering Turkey. Turkey has stated that the air strikes targeted positions held by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and Syrian Democratic Forces headed by the Democratic Union Party, close to the PKK. They report around 70 Kurdish fighters dead.

Moscow is deeply concerned by these actions. The Turkish military has acted here against the Kurdish forces that are genuinely combating terrorist groups, above all ISIS, on the ground. At a time when the war on terror in Iraq and Syria is far from over, these actions clearly do not help to consolidate counterterrorism efforts and aggravate an already tense situation.

We are also concerned over the fact that the Turkish airstrikes were carried out against sovereign states’ territory, bypassing these states’ legitimate governments. We consider such actions unacceptable and in breach of the basic principles of relations between states.

In this situation, we call on all parties to show restraint. It is important to show the needed political foresight and focus our attention on the most important task today – combating the terrorist international in the form of ISIS, al-Nusra and other affiliated groups.

Interesting perspective over time. From 1999:

"Given its role as Turkey's principal arms supplier, the United States has enormous potential leverage over Turkish behavior on critical issues such as respect for human rights and the pursuit of negotiated settlements to the 15-year civil war with the PKK and the 25-year old division of Cyprus. The time to use this leverage is now. In a "political aftershock" prompted by the government's handling of the earthquake, the Turkish media and non-governmental organizations have stepped up demands for fundamental reforms such as the revision of Turkey's military-dominated constitution."

And then this report from last summer:

"The US political system is a global arms distribution system of the first order. In this context, the Obama administration has proven itself a good friend to arms exporting firms. The Obama administration has approved more than $278 billion in foreign arms sales in its eight years, more than double the total of the previous administration. Team Obama has loosened restrictions on arms exports, making it possible to send abroad a whole new range of weapons and weapons components."

But President Obama wasn't a big provider to Turkey. Hence Russia saw an opening to enhance ties to Turkey by helping it to modernize its military. Including the potential sale of a state of the art defensive missile system.

Huge rebel convoy heads towards Kurdish border town as Turkey gears up for offensive
By Chris Tomson - 28/04/2017

The Turkish Armed Forces have reportedly drawn up plans to capture the Kurdish-held town of Tall Abyad and bring it under rebel control in a cross-border offensive comparable to the Euphrates Shield offensive last year.

Amateur footage emerged on Thursday, purportedly showing a large rebel convoy driving towards the Kurdish border town from the Jarabulus pocket through Turkish territory.

Turkish-led attack on Kurdish-held town in northern Aleppo results in heavy casualties
By Chris Tomson - 08/05/2017
Image
DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 P.M.) – On Sunday evening, fierce firefights erupted in rural Aleppo as Turkish-backed rebels began an assault on the town of Sheikh Issa, engaging with Kurdish elements of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

With clashes persisting until 4 in the morning, the SDF managed to hold their ground and kill all hostile fighters of Ahrar Al-Sham and Turkmen units of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The Turkish Armed Forces were not directly involved in the attack but reportedly shelled SDF positions at Sheikh Issa from rearguard positions.

A Kurdish military source said “dozens” of Turkish-backed militants were left dead on the battlefield although the exact number could not be specified as the fallen rebel fighters were in a no man’s zone between Marea and Sheikh Issa.
