The Battle for Rojava - Kurds bombed by NATO's Turks

Everyone Screws the Kurds
Kurds are targeted by both ISIS, the U.S. and Turkey

I suspect when a Kurd is born a target is painted on his back.

The Kurds are standing tall fighting the monsters of ISIS while Comrade Obama starves them of modern weapons and NATO member Turkey bombs the Kurds in Iraq.

Just a few days ago it was reported that the Turks have been supporting ISIS from day one.

One quote from that Reuters story:  "ISIS commanders told us to fear nothing at all because there was full cooperation with the Turks," the fighter said. "ISIS saw the Turkish army as its ally especially when it came to attacking the Kurds in Syria."

Watch the worthless evening "news" at your peril.  Educate yourself and spend a few minutes watching these news reports below.

Must See Videos
You never see this type of reporting on what passes for "news" on American TV.

Night Operation Against the Islamic State: 
The Battle for Rojava

The night fighting kicks in at the 6:00 minute mark on the video.

The northeastern city of Hasakah is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse in Syria. Its population of Kurds, Sunni Arabs, and Christians was until recently politically divided between equal zones of Kurdish and Assad regime control. Immediately following the fall of the strategic border town of Tal Abyad from Islamic State (IS) fighters to Kurdish YPG forces in June, however, IS hit back with a sudden shock offensive on the regime-held half of Hasakah, causing regime forces to crumble in a matter of days. 

As the Syrian army and loyalist militias relinquished control to IS, the YPG entered the battle, first encircling IS positions and then launching a ground offensive supported by pounding coalition airstrikes. Despite IS using their elite forces in the offensive, the combination of airstrikes and YPG ground troops proved too much and IS fled its recent gains in the city, leaving behind only ruined buildings and mangled bodies.

VICE News followed a YPG detachment on a night operation, providing support from Hasakah's Red Villas district to advancing Kurdish forces against IS fighters trying to defend the strategic al-Zuhor neighborhood, under waves of constant airstrikes from both the coalition and the Syrian regime's air force.

Setting Up a Kurdish State
Left-wing Kurds are setting up a new state called Rojava where all religions are respected and women have equality.  That is why the Islamists in Turkey refused to allow help to cross the Turkish border to assist the Kurds in Kobane against ISIS.


BBC - Rojava; Syria's Secret Revolution

Is the Middle East’s newest country a territory called “Rojava”? Out of the chaos of Syria’s civil war, mainly Kurdish leftists have forged an egalitarian, multi-ethnic mini-state run on communal lines. 

But with ISIS Jihadists attacking them at every opportunity — especially around the beleaguered city of Kobane, how long can this idealistic social experiment last? From the frontlines to the refugee camps, Mehran Bozorgnia filmed in Rojava for the BBC's Our World and has gained exclusive access and a revealing snapshot of Syria’s secret revolution.

Everyone wants the Kurds to die.
