Humanists will ever cooperate with their historical sponsor, Ottoman Islam, after all they owe it their allegiance.

^Travel advisory - these are regularly updated for various reasons. Eighty persons of interest from Eighteen countries. Do you suppose Canada is one of those countries? It is a fact Turkey has pressed returning ex patriate Turkish Canadians into military service in past eras. Again this was often par for the course for various countries. They would not be above 'clandestine extradition' esp. with a pliable gov't in Ottawa.

Lols, I like that the proprietors of this website gave this "Corbyn" puke a red action-symbol on the update map, as if he were a member of the Syrian Regime and/or a Soviet unit.

"Lets obstruct the government from saving babies from a searingly painful death by chemical asphyxiation so I can have a power-trip with my political opposition!" inferred some ass-hole in England that probably has a Soviet spy for a lover.

There actually IS a time and place for emotionalism, like when brutal dictators intentionally murder babies just to get a reaction.

I suppose if emotionalism is your motus operatum, it could become confusing when and where it is actually appropriate. I shouldn't be too harsh on someone who obviously compromised their own personal moral compass long ago to gain power, they are probably to the point where their brain doesn't comprehend the difference anymore.

That actually might be a good explanation for why around 95% of the bombs the RuAF has dropped on Syria was into neighborhoods inhabited by Syria's dwindling Christian enclaves.

Putin bowing to Erdogon though? I doubt it. Probably more like Putin trying to back-door absorb Constantinople into a "Soviet Empire 2.0" so he can restore their historical Capital.

Afterall, the government in Moscow represents the lest vestige of the Byzantine Empire... and dipstick jhadhis like the leaders in Iran and fools like Assad are dumb enough to trust them. They will ultimately betray anyone who sides with them for short term gain, just as they did to destroy themselves back in the day when they betrayed the Crusader States and alsmost precipitated the disappearance of the West. Getting in bed with Putin is the equivalent of sleeping in a bed full of hungry vipers.

I am starting to get the feeling that Turkey's momentum has stalled-out completely in Idlib. Their coalition with the local Turkman auxiliary forces there appears to be starting to fracture, and their attempt to negotiate a peaceable handover (via Russia) of a primary approach to Aleppo was probably either a fool's errand on Eredrogon's part, or was some sort of intentional stalling technique.

No matter why it started, the stall does seem to have created an environment there for a robust insurgency, particularly considering the YPG is in-bedded in much of the mechanisms and largely enjoys operational permissiveness (and potential cooperation) from most of the local population. Turkey needs to (somehow) really crack-down hard on their own troops that are starting to fracture, and continue to utilize their air-superiority to and battlefield intelligence if they don't want to see the region devolve into gallery where people can take free pop-shots at troops and equipment with Turkish Army insignia. But alas, things like that are never that simple, too many of the fighters there have been fighting for years already and there are 100 agendas for every 1000 Troops... dissension and infighting are probably just part of the culture for a lot of them at this point, only way to really prevent it in such an eclectic environment is to push forward against a larger common enemy.

Unfortunately Haaretz retreated behind a paywall.
