| We knew it was a hudna... You do your thing, Erdy baby, and President Trump will do his, mkay? |Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
Friday warned that Ankara would restart its operation against Kurdish forces in Syria on Tuesday evening if they did not withdraw from a "safe zone".

...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor...
has agreed to suspend its offensive for five days in northern Syria while Kurdish fighters withdraw from the area, after high stake talks with US Vice President Mike Pence in Ankara.
"If the promises are kept until Tuesday evening, the safe zone issue will be resolved. If it fails, the operation... will start the minute 120 hours are over," Erdogan told news hounds during a foreign media briefing in Istanbul.
Ottoman Turkish armed forces would remain in the region "because the security there requires this", adding that the agreement was holding and there had been no issues so far.
But the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Friday there had been
Ottoman Turkish air strikes on the village of Bab al-Kheir, east of Ras al-Ain on the border. The war monitor said 14 non-combatants were killed.
Turkey launched the cross-border incursion on October 9 after repeatedly threatening to clear the border area from the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militia.
Ottoman Turkish forces are supporting Syrian opposition fighters under the "Syrian National Army" banner but the proxies have been accused by Amnesia Amnesty International of committing "war crimes" including summary executions.
