    Turkey is involved in ethnic cleansing and the United Nations need to be involved. This is a shame for us. America should not let down their allies like this. SAVE THE KURDS!

  • it is not kurd place. Kurd displaced 4 million arab to Turkey. there was % 10 kurd in syria before syrian war. Now kurd controls half of syria and oil facilities. Kurd gets their salaries and weapons from usa. I may say kind a mercenaries. All tv channel use same speech copy paste. Fake news. Dont believe in Everthing that you watch.

  • what about US in iraq? this is war leaving a place because of war is normal. don't be so angry …just focus on your internal affairs

  • Kurds NEVER learn their lesson ! Russia asked them to stick with Syrian forces the Kurds rejected and acted like they are the cousin of American ! lol and American use them like condom once was used throw them in rubbish bin ! the Problem with Kurds is they Never get well with their neighbors, IRAQ give them Presidency and Foreign ministry two most important key role. yet they are only 12% of Iraq population ! when you are good and kind to people they back fire . they are not doing good to Turkey and Iran and Syrian ! they are not living in Canada they are in middle east . they need to understand that !

  • Turkish goverment should open the door in turkey more than 5 million Syrians pie the doors and destroyed Europe dint wait no more

  • The question is who is the boss in us the media. Mr Trump knows who are they fake news fake media just as like me Trump said that honest men


  • There's something that everyone forgets.Everyone says that Turkey invaded.They say he attacked the Kurds.This is not true.This is a lie.Turkey is fighting with the PKK for 30 years.PKK is a terrorist organization.The United Nations declares the PKK a terrorist.The PKK is a threat to Turkey.IN NORTH OF SYRIA.So, on the border of Turkey.Now ask yourself this question.What should I do if there is a terrorist organization within the borders of my country.What should I do to an organization that threatens me and kills my citizens for 30 years?

  • This is nothing new proxy wars exist all over the world…Ukraine??? So why is the news making a big issue about this now? Oh yea it’s one more thing to blame trump for. Let the Middle East sort itself out the Russians have been there the British America etc etc we try bringing them peace and democracy and they don’t want us there on top of that Syria is a country that supports terrorism and isis started there they are not victims. Here’s Obama admitting to training and funding isis aka Syrian terrorism… gee I wonder who created this mess 🤔 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=RNha3nabZeI

  • Turkey is not NATO, the coordinate with Russia and now are attacking our allies. They should be removed and equipment and funding dismantled

  • wtf..Im arabian and the journalist aren't really translating what people are saying… he's saying completely different things…

  • This Jamie Lanister looking moron needs to get some language lessons if he is going to report in that area… Also, he needs to be a puppet and report objectively. Fake news, indeed.

  • President Trump made the right tough decision! Our mission was to destroy ISIS. PERIOD! That is it, and the only reason we were in Syria. We destroyed ISIS from their last position in March. We no longer have any reason or invitation to be in Syria…a foreign country. It was past time to get out. The Kurds knew up front we were only aligned in our fight against ISIS…not in their civil WAR. We aren't some band of brothers with them. If our interests weren't aligned on ISIS they would turn fight us too. They also would have expected us to leave Syria when the ISIS fight was over. The Kurds want to occupy and hold onto ground that isn't theirs which ISIS had caused Syrians to flee from. Syria and Turkey do not want the Kurds occupying that land. Whether right or wrong, this condition, civil war with the Kurds, Turkey, and Syria existed long before us. It is not our WAR, it is their own civil war. Trump absolutely made the right call in moving US advisers out of that conflict. I hope Trump does sanction Turkey, and support the Kurds as much as possible, but it is not our WAR…it is theirs. Turkey is a NATO ally and supported NATO in the Iraq and Serbia wars. Turkey also has a large Air Force and possesses nuclear bombs to defend NATO. Is that a WAR you want President Trump to push America into, then you are insane, uninformed, or just simply as usual a Democrat who just hates everything Trump does with out justification.

  • I am by no means a specialist in this subject. But is it possible, that this move by US has planted the seeds for the next generation of terrorists? That will take revenge in some years down the road? Just a discussion question. Let us discuss without offending. Like Mister Rogers would. In kindness.

  • Муслим Даудов says:

    Kurds were used by US and EU to fight IS. They just were used when they needed them and now, they are not needed any more. Thats what US do to their slaves and thats what exactly deserved the Kurdish stupid fighters

  • I dont get the funny comments, my whole family is begging for my family to survive and yall making jokes jesus christ unrespectfull.

  • I said I'm here to turkey all over the world. Syrian terrorists in his operation that pyd pkk to accumulate them only because the European enemy is throwing such false news

  • Of course Turkey is using militia not a real military invasion, they are seeking the destruction of the Kurds, millions of Kurds were murdered by Saddam Hussein so they took arm and fought Saddam, thousands of kurds were massacre by ISIS so they took arm and fought and defeated ISIS, hundreds of thousands were killed by the Syrian military so they took arm and fought Assad and were very close to winning the Civil war. It's sad that the Kurds cant live in peace there dream to create a Kurdistan is just a fairytale to the world.

  • America can add the deaths in this attack to the deaths in El Paso, Odessa and Dayton amongst too many others, to the ongoing relentless poor decisions trump continues to make on behalf of his jilted policy, administration and the top 1%, who’s drive for financial gain and ignorance of the suffering being experienced by the 99% of Americans and anyone on planet earth who deserves basic human rights … trump owns this along with his failed healthcare policy, failed gun control policy, failed immigration policy, failed policy on fighting racism and hate, failed tariff policy, and the too many to list pelvises that are a mistake for America and global man kind … yes trump owns all of this.

  • I feel sorry for the Kurds Saddam Hussein killed a million kurds with gas back in the 80s and then help the United States of America in Iraq and then help with isis and now we bail out on them sad

  • Of all the bad things Trump has done this is by far the most disgusting. The Kurds won the war against ISIS, not the US. They were our ground troops while supplied intelligence, training and air support. They paid a heavy price (11K killed) so that US didn't have to (only 17 dead). And this is the thanks they get? Trump is a war criminal! I'd love to see the transcript of his call with Erdogan during which he decided to do this against all advice from people around him.

  • Syria now has a 2million soldier state army within its borders instead of terrorist factions 👈 Trump is ment to be blamed and America to fall so Israel can take over power, all the chess pieces will become clear soon.

  • TürkqAze İnteractive says:

    🇹🇷We are there for justice and security. We are not there to fight the Kurds, but to fight the terrorists

  • Long John SiLver says:

    F… u truimp

  • Alston Fernandez says:


  • In all operations in the region, even in the Korean war, the Turks are U.S. allies.

    The United States only worked with Kurdish terrorist groups in Syria.

  • Harry Knickerbocker says:

    All this suffering is the result of a knee jerk decision Trump made on his own without consulting anyone. Now he's got a war and it's only a matter of time before we take some casualties. This blood is on Trump's hands. Words cannot describe how incompetent, dishonorable, shameful, and cowardly, Trump is. Unfortunately, others will pay a heavy price for his thoughtless action.

  • William Helfrich says:

    Christian Zionist Evangelical backed criminal Enterprise 😂 the new revised Machiavellian edition of the Gospel 😜 it's better for the Zionist Evangelical backing to allow Trump to sacrifice the Kurds for personal gain than chance losing grip on the American taxpayers blood and treasure to continue to fight Israeli Zionist wars in the middle East 🙊 🙉🙈 🤫🤑 🤥

  • "That’s an area weapon […] That’s not something we ever would have done to a partner force", the official said, adding that Turkish forces knew there were Americans on the hill and that it had to be deliberate, the DC-based newspaper reported.

    According to an earlier Pentagon statement, Turkish shells "exploded a few hundred meters of a location outside the Security Mechanism zone and in an area known by the Turks to have US forces present".

    The Pentagon has demanded that Ankara avoid actions that "could result in immediate defensive action".

    Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said earlier on Saturday that the nation's military is coordinating efforts with the United States, and has denied accusations that Ankara deliberately targeted US forces in the region.

  • The Turkish Defence Ministry also said it had taken the necessary measures to avoid inflicting damage on a US observation post near the positions of Kurdish-led forces.

    Turkey launched its military offensive dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring' on Wednesday, several days after US President Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reportedly discussed the issue in a phone call. The Trump administration quickly announced that Washington would not stand in Ankara's way although the Kurdish members of the SDF have long worked closely alongside the Pentagon to neutralize Daesh.

    The offensive began after Trump ordered the removal of some 1,000 US troops from the region. Ankara stated that it had killed what it called  415 "terrorists" since Wednesday.

    Turkey's move has been condemned by the international community, including by Western allies and in the Arab world. Damascus views the offensive as a violation of Syria's territorial integrity.

    Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said earlier that Operation Peace Spring was launched "in accordance with international law, Article 51 of the UN Charter and UN Security Council Resolutions on fight against terrorism".

  • All the blood we shed with the Kurds for years…wasted and dishonored by two men. Both are presidents.
    Praying for our terp, brother and friend from Camp Speicher, "Big John" Sabir (I won't dime him out with his real name), hoping you're safe in Kirkuk or bugging out for Jordan, man

  • Jekabs Karklins says:

    I think Trump didn't foresee the humanity crisis and military actions on their allies following US withdrawal. Foreseeing that requires too much brainworks, the president is incapable of.
