#2 Turkey needs to get its ass kicked on this. I have no sympathy. Turks always treat minorities poorly. The Turks I had to deal with in Germany during my tours there were always rude and insulting. I hope the YPG makes them pay dearly for this stupidity.

#3 We should provide the Kurds a no-flyzone. Duty 2 protect, eh?

#4 Putin and Erdogan exchanged words for a bit. Then Russia shot down a Turkish jet. Upon which Erdogan stood down. It might take something similar by USAF or USN to send the Turks scurrying back across the border. Whether Trump wants to go that far is an open question. While PYD is ostensibly atheist, the Kurds are probably keeping their fingers crossed that Trump serves as Allah ex machina in delivering them from Erdogan.
