Turkish troops to move into Manbij if Kurdish forces refuse to leave: deputy PM
[XINHUANET] Defying the U.S. warnings,
Ottoman Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag warned Sunday that Ottoman Turkish troops will move into Manbij if the Kurdish forces refuse to leave.
If the Kurdish forces of the People's Protection Units (YPG), do not leave Manbij in northern Syria,
Ottoman Turkish troops "will move into Manbij and toward the east of Euphrates," Bozdag told the local channel CNN Turk.
On the possibility of a clash between U.S. and
Ottoman Turkish troops, Bozdag noted that The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire....
does not want to clash with U.S. troops in Manbij or anywhere else in Syria, adding that the U.S., a NATO
...the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. A collection of multinational and multilingual and multicultural armed forces, all of differing capabilities, working toward a common goal by pulling in different directions...
ally for Turkey, needs to show the same sensitivity regarding the issue.
"If U.S. soldiers wear uniforms of (YPG) bully boyz and fight with them against the
Ottoman Turkish army, we will not have a chance to make the difference at this point," Bozdag said.
He also warned that Washington needs to tell U.S. soldiers not to face
Ottoman Turkish forces and stay away from the region.
if you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...
whoever cooperates with bully boyz and carries out attacks against
Ottoman Turkish forces will receive the necessary response," he stressed.
