Turkey & Russia attacking Kurds. Could this be to also fuel refugees, driving Far-Right Populism?

.

Portugal suffered a RW defeat, favoring socialist leadership.

The attacks on the Kurds were said to drive refugees into the EU, which would impact politics there.


The Turks hate the Kurds. The Kurds are US allies, which does not bode well with Russia.


Trumps order to abandon our allies and retreat, could be a multi-faceted venture by Turkey & Russia.

Get the Kurds to flee to the EU and more RW authoritarian extremists get elected to office.


Just a thought.

4. Great victory for Putin

This is a win for him on several levels. Gets to build his pipeline and subjugate.exterminate an entire race. He also gets to send a message to the world that the US is his lapdog and will not oppose his aggression anywhere, Putin has the green light to do what he wants, the US won't even protect our most valuable ally against ISIS, one that is vital to our own security interests. And the refugee crisis will worsen driving more xenophobia.

Above all, this is Putin planting his flag in the heart of American foreign policy and security. This is his world now, he's the alpha dog, the US will do nothing to oppose him.

5. You're thinking too hard

Itís something to do with the profitability of Trump Tower in Turkey. Heís too dumb to think of something that 3 dimensional. Immigration is down and it didnít stop him from calling it a emergency. A few extra refugees wonít effect anything he is doing/saying.

6. I doubt that they think that far ahead.

Pretty much everything Trump does is a knee-jerk response to something, so I doubt he's considered the ramifications beyond the present.
