Things seem to be heating up towards a final denouement in the phony 5 year-long Syrian “civil war”. Turkey recently “invaded” Syria, officially to remove the scourge of Daesh from the Turkish border and, more specifically, to contain the Kurds and their aspirations for a “Kurdistan”. The US is, again officially, ok with these moves by Turkey but, oddly, US troops, several hundred (or likely thousand) of them are ’embedded’ with the Kurds and the “Syrian Democratic Forces”.
Meanwhile, Russia has remained largely silent on these recent developments, and instead has been focusing on the “peace process”.
What’s really going on? Join us today and find out, as we reveal the rather prosaic (if at times disturbing) realpolitik behind the flowery narratives.
