The shelling of Syrian territory
El Murid, Feb 14 2016 12:28 MSK
The Turkish army has continued its shelling of Syrian territory. They fired at the position of the Kurds engaged in the offensive against pro-Turkish fighters in Azaz and surrounding villages. In a sense, this repeats the experience of the Donbass, when the “allied” militias from abroad were shelling (during the supposed ceasefires of the) group AFU & Natzbats. Azaz became a kind of Syrian Zelenopolye. The Turks are quite serious about the threat posed to them from the Syrian territory under Kurdish control. As the operational rear of the Kurdish groups fighting on the territory of Turkey, is territory which previously was controlled by Pro-Turkish militants, Because of its cordial relations with ISIS, Turkey is also angered by the fact that the Kurds are no-nonsense fighting with ISIS on all fronts. Now, when the pro-Turkish positions of militants in the border begin to weaken, increasing pressure from the Kurds. The Kurdish threat is a red rag to Turkey. She can’t allow the existence of a rear site for the fighting units of the PKK, and this is the main reason of today’s contradictions. To eliminate the threat, the Turks have only one way: through the organization of a buffer zone filled with pro-Turkish militants. Whether the Russian government did or didn’t understand the objective of the Turks, it doesn’t matter. What is important is that air operation of Russia and the advance of the Syrians on the positions of the “moderate” militants blew up the system the Turks are building of containment for the Kurds. Hence the hostile position of Turkey against Russia.
Turkish Artillery strikes Latakia

After artillery strikes on the province of Aleppo, the Turks now began shelling the positions of the Syrian army in Latakia. The air defense system deployed by the Russian military is unable to resist shelling. Turkey is taking the action to a qualitatively different level, and any answer from the Syrian or Russian military, without a doubt, will be interpreted by the West as aggression against Turkey.
Toads ready to depose Assad forcibly

Toad Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubayr said that in case of failure of the political settlement in Syria, Assad may be overthrown by force. It is not a long time of the revolutionary masses, the indignation of the people, what the arguments were in the beginning of the aggression. They obviously don’t work, and to talk about the revolutionary today does not work. Now (the Toads) have to speak directly. The statement of Jubayr is not directed at Assad. The conditions to threaten the sense big is not present. Assad has long responded To all these threats (by saying): “Come and take it, if you can.” The Toad’s pressure is directed at Russia, (there is) no other recipient of this message. Giving in to blackmail by the Turks, the Toads, the Pindosis, the Russian leadership looks noticeably paler in the face, and although on the TV it still struts, it has nowhere to go. It is merely discussing its own terms of surrender. Just today, Putin spoke with Obama on the subject of implementation of the Munich agreements. In Munich, Jackass and Lavrov reached an agreement to cease fire within one week; now here is Putin with Obama to discuss it. Consider that Pindosis in general, never cease to demand the ceasefire by the Russian party. And to strengthen the impression, the Turks continue to concentrate their troops along the border, while the Toads transfer planes and make threats about the removal of Assad by force. Understand that the departure of Assad as a result of negotiations will allow our rulers to save face: you know, the choice of the people and all that. But if he is deposed by force, there will be issues to them already: “You promised that you’d protect him!” They can answer reflexively, as they always do out of sheer habit: “We promised nothing!” But it will not be funny, especially after the Donbass. There also, Putin promised no-one anything, Yes. So after it is over, what will our propagandists say to the zombified electorate? That our ingenious leader prevented WW3, he listened to tearful pleas to stop the fighting. The enemy is so afraid of our aircraft that he crawled on his knees to ask for peace. I think that next week all the talk shows on our channels will expand the theme of shame in this manner. Nothing else is there to think of that might still work. In fact, if Putin signs a ceasefire, it will be a capitulation. This adventurous and misconceived war has all the chances of so stupid an end. In general, it’s even good. That’s precisely the logical end I would like for this idiocy. So be it.
The answer to the Turkish Sultan
El Murid, Feb 14 2016 15:41 MSK
The Syrian Kurds responded to the ultimatum of Turkey to leave the border areas in the spirit of Zaporozhian Cossacks response of the Turkish Sultan. The Kurds can be understood. It’s Syrian territory. What does Turkey have to do with it, and why she is trying to evict the Kurds living in this area? Turkey, demanding that Kurdish troops to leave, will now be forced to swallow some ridicule or to react. It can react in different ways, by continuing (artillery) attacks from its territory, or by conducting a ground operation. (Artillery) attacks solve nothing. It’s a variant to tough it out, but so that allegedly no one noticed. The invasion can bring success, but it’s what the Turks did not venture to do for four years. In addition, Turkey needs to put the squeeze on the situation with Russia. The Kremlin might be about to abandon the bombardment, and then in Turkey there is a possibility to return to their old tactics of confrontation with the Kurds through controlled formation of fighters. Most likely, the situation will develop depending on how Russia chooses to behave in the light of the ultimatum presented to her. If the ceasefire still held, and the Russian aircraft will stop bombing “moderate” terrorists, then the risk of invasion of Turkey is significantly reduced. This does not preclude the continuation of attacks, but at least the Turkish ground operation becomes less likely. But there is also the possibility that the Russian air force will carry on bombing. The probability of this is that ol’ blue eyes (голубом глазу, guess who – RB) can justify continuing by saying that everything Russia drop bombs on is after all, necessarily ISIS. Whether it is fighters, civilians, locals or camel barns, for us it is all ISIS. Then the Turks with a very high degree of probability will be forced to launch a ground offensive in the border area. In general, there will be nother option, either from a military or from a prestige point of view. Pindostan comes the expanse; it is comfortable with any developments. If the Russians stop bombing, fine. Putin will have shown he is afraid of blackmail,which will disgrace hiom before the whole honest world. And if Russia will continue to bomb, is even better. Then the Turks have to come in to Syria, which will dramatically change the intensity of the ongoing war and translate it onto an even more risky plane, and the probability of direct collision of Russia and Turkey will approach certainty. Lovingly arrayed combination when opponents are in a hopeless situation is favourite (конек) Saxon policy. I don’t know what clever ideas have been presented to Putin and Erdogan, but what is now driving them is just the obvious, like calves on the rope. The Toad Minister, like a real Internet Troll, added fuel to the fire by saying that the Toad forces are ready for action in Syria and await only the command. Of course he will pretend that all this will be ‘only against ISIS’. This has become like the local anecdote which tell everything and everyone, as they heroically ‘fight with ISIS’.
