The Kurds are the Key, Putin is the Mystery

The Kurds are the Key, Putin is the Mystery

Russia. Turkey. Iraq.

The Kurds are not the Palestinians.

The Kurds have fought bravely for a homeland, have been patient, have made friends (Russia & US) and have acted with respect, even when disrespected.

Frankly their time has come.

With Russian support, U.S. support, and yes, even Turkish support – if Erdogan can be rational – which I predict he will surprise everyone and be – they can get a little homeland going.

Erdogan won’t ever announce any actual support, I’m not stupid enough to think that — but if something gets done at Sochi, and he doesn’t start a war, that’s a kind of tacit agreement.

I know he doesn’t see this right now, but it would help him, it would help his internal Kurd problem, and my guess is — he just might be figuring that out – and might let Putin/Russia drag him, kicking and screaming, into not using force to counter that reality.

Putin is playing a very interesting game here. Will he use his air power in Afrin to betray his friends the Kurds? I don’t think so, which leaves Erdogan where I described above, despite how unlikely it sounds. Air power is the ultimate vector today, all other vectors are written AFTER that one. I don’t think America is the reason Putin will withhold CAS either.

Putin has some other plan hatching here and everybody, including Erdogan, should figure out what it is.
