The Syrian war has been spilled over into Turkey. The Kurdish fighters are now the preferred weapon recipients of the West. The US, Germany, The Netherlands and UK are supplying Kurdish fighter with arms and training.

Not only the Pesmerga in Northern Iraq, governed by president Barzani, a key US ally in the region, but also the Syrian Kurdish factions, who are ran by the Socialist Democratic Union Party (PYD), are armed by the US. The Syrian Kurdish militias solely promised not to hand over the US supplied weapons to their PKK brothers in Turkey. There is no way to control this and the Turkish state media “Daily Sabah” already complains that Germany are delivering arms and training PKK insurgents.
Erdogan is now transforming Turkey into an Islafascistic state: a mixture of extreme nationalism combined with Islamism, a strong leader, backed by a strong army. The Kurdish people in South Eastern Turkey will not subdue themselves to Erdogan. We are even starting to believe that the Western powers prefer a strong regional Kurdistan that depends on Western support above an Islafascistic Turkish state with a ruler that does not play the game by the rules as they are set by the Brussels and Washington elite.
In 2015, we have already seen a Turkish combat tank in action in urban areas, today we witness a further escalation as the PKK shows it possesses the capacity to destroy Turkish tanks while Turkey brings in more tanks into urban areas in “Kurdistan”.
