Re: Syria - It ain't over till it's over

Not much information around about the Turkish Army in Syria and their operation Euphrates shield which started in the last week of August.

Looks like Turkey will be sucked into the quagmire just like everybody else.

Now US has cancelled peace talks there are concerns they will supply more sophisticated weapons to rebel groups who may not see Turkey as a reliable partner!
According to liveuamap.com this has happened already, rebel forces are shown holding considerable territory in Turkey, and no territory under turkish authority in Syriah.

Perhaps even more important though: Territory shown as held by Kurds has roughly doubled in the last 2-3-4 weeks, makes me question a bit the accuracy of their data as certainly either then or now must be (have been) rather inaccurate. Otherwise the headlines would be full about Kurdish military successes.
