Among the groups in Iraq which are fighting most effectively agains ISIS are Kurdish troops who belong to the Kurdish Workers Party. Turkey is allegedly an ally of the US and NATO so it is expected to join in the fight against ISIS. Heck, an ISIS suicide bomber last week murdered over twenty Turkish young people. So, what is the stand of President Recep Erdogan of Turkey? You must understand that up to this moment he has refused to aid those fighting ISIS?
1. Erdogan is now willing to allow US planes to use Turkish airports.
2. However, according to President Erdogan, the real enemy is NOT ISIS. The real enemy is any Kurdish led military group.
3. In other words, the US is cooperating with Kurdish forces while our ally, Turkey, is bombing Kurdish forces.
4. Recep Erdogan is a bully, a man consumed with a desire for power, and a man who refuses to work in a cooperative manner with Kurds who live in Turkey or any other place in this world.
