Turkey Enters Syria Because Things Weren’t Deadly Enough
Turkey’s foray into North-Eastern Syria quickly descended into a Mexican standoff less than 24 hours after it began. Turkey increased its troop presence in the town it captured on the border and threatened Kurdish forces, demanding that they withdraw from the Turkish border or face a fight. So just to give a quick recap on the East Syrian situation:
- Turkey and the Kurds are at war.
- The Kurds and ISIS are at war.
- ISIS and Turkey are at war.
No one move or we all die. The fear is that Turkey’s Syrian intervention will end up being a much bigger, more drawn out affair than previously expected which could make the Syrian Civil War even worse. Something we didn’t think was possible.
