“Turkish PM tells me they’ll try to help Kobani in a humanitarian way, but unless al-Assad is stopped, ISIL grows+more towns will fall,”

ISIS has defeated Turkey today. As IS raised two flags on the high places in Kobane, Turkey’s president tinkled on himself and hid in his mommies cellar.  Calling his prime minister, known as ‘The Weasel’ the Free World finally heard why the women fighters of Kobane will not be getting any military aide from the Weasel Nation of ISIS. Citing our border problems with Mexico, The Weasel suggested the U.S. put an army in Syria and destroy Assad, while they arrest the suriving members of the PKK after they are driven into Turkey by their allies, ‘The Scum of the Earth’. This is the “humanitarian way” Weasel Man refers to.

What this co-terrorist trickster is saying, is, my nation should finish what Turkey and ISIS began. Write VP Biden and give him a thumbs up! These, devils has replicated what Stalin did the Poles in the Warsaw Uprising.

The Tricksters fear Russia who backs Assad. They want the U.S. to negate the Russian threat. The Weasel Coward has dreams of a new Ottoman Empire, and thus he wants a Caliphate. Time to throw these scumbags our of NATO.

Davutoğlu has called for Turkey to become more than just a regional power within Europe and the Middle East and expressed a desire for Ankara to have a far more influential role in world politics.[22] Davutoğlu is generally linked to the notion of Turkish neo-Ottomanism, which favours a commonwealth with its neighbours and old Ottoman connections.[23] Although his foreign policies have been regarded as neo-Ottomanist by Western and especially U.S. media, Davutoğlu does not accept such a characterization. He stated in an interview with Turkish daily Sabah that “as much as we don’t use this conceptualization, the fact that it is being used against us is either because of misunderstanding or lack of goodwill.” He argued against the idea that Turkey is trying to establish a neo-Ottoman imperial order: “I have said that Turkey as a nation-state is equal with any other nation-state of our region whether it is small in population or area. We don’t have any hegemony on anyone.

–> Ground troops can be used in the operation targeting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) as part of a comprehensive strategy also targeting the Bashar al-Assad regime, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu has reportedly said.

Davutoğlu made the remarks in an interview with CNN, CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour wrote via her Twitter account on Oct. 6.

The prime minister’s interview with Amanpour was set to be aired late Oct. 6.

“Turkish PM @Ahmet_Davutoglu tells me there can be boots on ground but only if the U.S. strategy includes going after al-Assad too,” Amanpour wrote on Twitter.

Davutoğlu also reportedly said Turkey will join the coalition against ISIL “only with a no-fly zone and safe havens inside Syria.”

According to Amanpour, Davutoğlu claimed that if al-Assad stayed in power it would only help ISIL grow.

“Turkish PM tells me they’ll try to help Kobani in a humanitarian way, but unless al-Assad is stopped, ISIL grows+more towns will fall,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, when asked about U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s recent remarks accusing Turkey of helping jihadist groups against al-Assad, Davutoğlu said Turkey “expects fairness and empathy.”

“The United States of America has a border with Mexico and there are two states on both sides,” Davutoğlu said in part of the interview, the video of which was published on CNN’s website.

“Is it easy to control the entire border? Some 1.6 million people came, you can imagine what types of risks and challenges we are facing,” the prime minister added.

 

Turkish-Syrian border (CNN) — ISIS fighters pounded the Syrian city of Kobani with tanks and heavy artillery Monday as the extremist group came closer to capturing the key city on the border with Turkey.

The fall of the city would carry huge symbolic and strategic weight, giving ISIS sway over an uninterrupted swatch of land between the Turkish border and its self-declared capital in Raqqa, Syria, 100 kilometers (62 miles) away.

Although the fight was not over, CNN crews on Monday spotted what appeared to be the black flag of ISIS flying from a hilltop on the eastern side of the city. The flag was farther east into the city from one shown flying atop a building in video from Reuters and also seen by the CNN crews.

The Turkish military, which has bulked up its defenses along the border in recent days as the fighting has flared, blocked people fleeing the fighting from crossing the border.

“We want to go across!” would-be refugees chanted as they pressed against a border fence.

The city’s defenders vowed to keep fighting.

“We are afraid of this. We are obliged to defend our home, our town,” Kurdish Kobani official Idriss Nassan said. “We didn’t choose this war, but we are obliged to fight.”

Yet, members of the Kurdish People’s Protection Unit, called YPG, and other groups defending the city couldn’t move overnight because of ISIS snipers equipped with night vision equipment, a fighter inside the city told CNN.

U.S. and allies strike again

ISIS managed to close in on Kobani despite airstrikes by the United States and allied forces over the weekend and on Monday.

The most recent airstrikes took out two fighting positions near Kobani and two tanks near Raqqa, as well as two small ISIS units, two mortar positions and a building in Iraq, the U.S. military said Monday.

Over the weekend, allied airstrikes destroyed two ISIS tanks, a bulldozer and another ISIS vehicle, U.S. Central Command said. Two airstrikes hit a large ISIS unit and destroyed six firing positions, the U.S. military said.

A senior defense official said Monday to expect more airstrikes against ISIS targets in the Kobani area.

But such attacks aren’t enough, Nassan said.

“When I talk to people here in Kobani, they thank the international community, and the United States, they thank the countries who are striking the ISIS. But everyone believes it is not enough,” he said.

The “international community cannot defeat ISIS by just hitting them from the sky. They have to help the people who are fighting — the YPG, the (rebel) Free Syrian Army who are here on the ground.”

Helicopters used in Iraq strikes

U.S. Army Apache gunships were used against ISIS targets in Iraq’s Anbar province over the weekend, the senior defense official who spoke about the plans for more Kobani airstrikes told CNN.

Fixed-wing aircraft also were on the mission, but because Iraqi forces were close to ISIS forces, the Apaches were used because they fly low and can strike with precision, the official said.

The official described the area as “very much contested, with ISIS continuing to make gains.”

The low altitude used by Apaches poses a risk, but with ISIS forces in such a populated area, their precision was needed, the official said.

U.S. officials don’t see ISIS making a direct run for Baghdad, but concerns remain that ISIS elements are in the city and around the airport, the official said.

In other developments:

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has apologized to the United Arab Emirates and Turkey for comments he made last week that Middle Eastern allies are partly to blame for the strengthening of ISIS.

The latest apology came in phone call from Biden to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, representatives from both countries said Sunday. The vice president issued an apology to Turkey earlier during the weekend.

The problem appears to have originated during an appearance last week at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University when Biden spoke about Turkey, the UAE, other Middle Eastern allies, and the threat posed by the so-called Islamic State terror group, also known as ISIS or ISIL.

“They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad. Except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra and al-Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world,” Biden told students.

“We could not convince our colleagues to stop supplying them,” he said.

On Turkey’s alleged role, Biden said, “President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan told me, he’s an old friend, said, ‘You were right. We let too many people (including foreign fighters) through.’ Now they are trying to seal their border,” he said, according to transcripts.

Denial and consternation

Erdogan vehemently denied ever saying such a thing.

Biden extended a mea culpa on Saturday to the Turkish President.

The apology came hours after Erdogan expressed his anger over the comments to reporters in Istanbul, saying, “Biden has to apologize for his statements.”

Otherwise, he said, Biden will become “history to me,” according to published reports by the semi-official Anadolu news agency.

The United Arab Emirates’ foreign ministry hit Biden with a sharply formulated statement Saturday, expressing its “astonishment” at the vice president’s remarks.

They were “far from the truth, especially with relation to the UAE’s role in confronting extremism and terrorism and its clear and advanced position in recognizing the dangers, including the danger of financing terrorism and terrorist groups,” said Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr. Anwar Mohammed Gargash.

The apologies

The UAE on Sunday said that Biden apologized to the Crown Prince during their phone call “for any implications in his recent statements” that the Middle Eastern nation has backed the growth of terror groups.

A statement from Biden’s office avoided the word “apology,” but said he “clarified that his recent remarks regarding the early stages of the conflict in Syria were not meant to imply that the UAE had facilitated or supported ISIL, Al Qaeda, or other extremist groups in Syria.”

Biden thanked the UAE for its role in fighting ISIS and terrorism in the region, according to accounts from both nations.

He made similar overtures to Turkey.

“The Vice President apologized for any implication that Turkey or other Allies and partners in the region had intentionally supplied or facilitated the growth of ISIL or other violent extremists in Syria,” Biden spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff said.

“The Vice President made clear that the United States greatly values the commitments and sacrifices made by our Allies and partners from around the world to combat the scourge of ISIL, including Turkey.”

During their telephone conversation, Biden and Erdogan reaffirmed the two countries’ commitment to fight the terror group, Barkoff said.

Erdogan’s office and the Turkish Foreign Ministry did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment regarding Biden’s apology.

The issue has arisen at a sensitive time, with Turkey’s government authorizing the use of military force against terrorist organizations, including ISIS, as the militant group’s fighters laid siege to towns just south of the Turkish border.

The government also agreed to allow foreign troops to launch operations against ISIS from Turkey.

Until now, Turkey has offered only tacit support to the coalition.

While Biden is known for making blunt statements that sometimes embarrass the administration, Turkey is particularly sensitive to allegations of allowing terrorists to cross its border into Syria.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has accused Turkey of looking the other way and, in some cases, providing support to rebels embroiled in the country’s civil war.

Turkey, in turn, has accused Syria of fomenting the unrest that has led to ISIS taking hold in the region.
