Is Europe running out of patience with the bellicose TurkReich? When even the French join in to tell you to knock it off, you know you’ve done ticked off Europe.
Perhaps the TurkReich has worn out its welcome in the European Community, and perhaps its naked, brutal aggression against Afrin will be the final, in a long line of potential, tipping point(s) that cause Europe to stop thinking of Turkey as an ally and start thinking of Turkey as what it actually is, an enemy, an enemy of anyone and everyone around its borders, which stands in direct conflict with the interests of Europe.
The French Prime Minister, Emmanuel Macron, implored Russia to reign in their rabid dog, and he also informed the Turks that the resolution by the UN to create a 30-day cease-fire in Syria ALSO applied to Afrin.
We’ll see if Erdogan, who is busy making 6 year old girls cry while he celebrates their potential future martyrdom, will heed Macron’s warning.
|France’s Macron tells Erdogan Syria truce also applies to Afrin|
France on Monday said that Russia had to use its influence on the Syrian government to ensure it kept to a U.N.-backed nationwide ceasefire, and told Turkey the truce also applied to its operations against Kurdish militants in the Afrin region.
Two days after a U.N. Security Council resolution demanding a 30-day ceasefire across the country, Syria’s army and its allies have continued their assault on the rebel-held enclave of eastern Ghouta near Damascus, and Turkey deployed police special forces to the northwestern Syrian region of Afrin on Monday for a “new battle” against the Kurdish YPG militia.
“The president … stressed that the humanitarian truce applied to all of Syria, including Afrin, and should be implemented everywhere and by all without any delay,” Macron’s office said after a call with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.
