Erdogan agreed #turkstream 2 pipeline for Russian okay to Bomb Afrin

 
Just 24 hrs before they started blasting the only progressive forces in the Middle East with US planes and German tanks the ‘Turkish Hitler’ Erdogan gave permission to Russia to build the 2nd #turkstream gas pipeline through Turkey into Europe. (see Jan 21 2018 Gazprom receives construction permit for second string of TurkStream)In return Russia was probably blackmailed to criminally okay the bombing.

“The grim tally of children killed in Syria in the past two weeks has increased daily as violence escalates in several areas across the country,” Fran Equiza, UNICEF Representative in Syria, said in a statement titled “Is the world becoming numb to the killing of children?”
(Russia controls the air space and was able to stop Turkey and Turkstream when they downed a Russian fighter in 2015).. One word ..NYET from Putin could have paralysed the invasion and the likely loss of thousands of innocent lives. (see.. is powerless to defend Syria against because it needs the and )

We’re used to blaming the USA as the king of predator capitalism but Russia is just as bad. Modern nation states degenerate into repressive corrupt mafias, and that’s why the Kurdish Revolution is  in principle not even demanding a new State . (see..Rojava Revolution.. A Utopia at the Heart of Syrian Chaos)

By agreeing the Turkstream 2 pipeline and bombing the villages of US allies Erdogan has slammed the door on the USA imperialists.  …Great?! … But only to implement an equally capitalist as well as racist, jihadi, hierarchical and ultra misogynist police state.

It’s not just the Turkstream 2 pipeline, a second and third are planned if permission to enter the EU is obtained. Erdogan will get cheap gas to aid his nightmares of Empire and SE Europe will get locked into 50 yrs more of climate-lethal fossil fuel gas now shown to be as bad as coal due to leakages…Then there is the nuclear power plant, and the Russian arms and anti aircraft system and… (see also The ‘Turkish Hitler’ got to power partly by cynically sabotaging the advanced peace process and playing the traditional nationalist card of racist paranoia and pogroms against the 18 million strong Kurdish minority.  (see also.. Nusaybin surrenders after 74 days ..in total ruins and deafening silence)

However it remains to be seen whether he can defeat the SDF/YPG/J in Rojava. Already the invasion seems to be getting bogged down despite the immense Turkish superiority in numbers and armaments. It seems that Erdogan cannot use his own infantry of unwilling drafted soldiers for fear of mutiny, and must rely on mercenaries recruited from the dregs of failed Syrian militias, who are happy to take Turkish salaries but understandably unwilling to give their lives.
