Turkey will let coalition forces use its bases for operations against ISIS. And will also train moderate Syrian rebels after screening them. SDR wonders when more details on what a moderate is will reach the world. This because to most of us President Erdogan is hardly him self a moderate who openly sponsor Hamas and the Brotherhood of Egypt.
" Who can guarantee that the same so called moderates don't come back someday later to fight the West? "
Turkey will let U.S. and coalition forces use its bases, including a key installation within 100 miles of the Syrian border, for operations against the “Islamic State” (ISIS) in Syria and Iraq, American defense officials said Sunday, according to The Associated Press The Obama administration had been pressing Ankara to play a larger role against the extremists, who have taken control of large swaths of Syria and Iraq, including territory on Turkey's border, and sent refugees fleeing into Turkey.
"So Turkey has many ways it can contribute," Rice was quoted as having told NBC's "Meet the Press."
SDR wonders if we should we be impressed that they don’t let terrorists and smuggling over their border?
Isn’t that what any NATO nation is supposed to do without a medal ?
While Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said his country cannot stay out of the international coalition fighting ISIS, Turkey has not yet joined the coalition.
but Turkey’s Foreign Minister on Sunday ruled out Turkish intervention in this.
Who would refuse sending troops to fight and confront ISIS or IS? A friend or enemy ?
But if they won’t help the Kurds then who will they help at all ?
