It is starting to make sense. The close connection between events in Benghazi and Turkey, the arming of the Syrian rebels, later to become ISIS.
Last week, Obama cut a deal with Turkish President Recep Erdogan, a good Sunni member of the Muslim Brotherhood, that changes the West’s relationship with Turkey.
We get access to 2 bases in Turkey to attack ISIS under Turkish coordination, and Turkey get free hands to run the operation in Syria and attack all terrorists (read the Kurds).
U.S. agrees to set up “Safe Zones” across the border and settle refugees. This is in the Kurdish controlled areas, thus rendering the Kurds incapable of attacking ISIS further.
Erdogan’s hand will be greatly strengthened, he will again control the Kurds in Turkey decimate the Kurds in Syria and prevent U.S to give further assistance to the Kurds.
The “Safe Zones” will to some extent control the refugee flow, but they will also make the Kurds a minority in these areas.
Mission accomplished. It is all in Obama’s plan. A Limerick:
The Border from Syria to Turkey
must close, but the reasons are murky.
It is Erdogan’s plan
Crush the Kurds, – to a man!
and let ISIS, our friends, be more quirky.
