Russia Says It Warned U.S. Not to Play 'Kurdish Card' in Syria: 'This Can Come to No Good'

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said that Moscow repeatedly warned the U.S. against its Kurdish "experiment" in Syria, suggesting it could only end in disaster.

After Turkey launched its military offensive against Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria, Lavrov told reporters Thursday that the Kremlin wants "this situation to calm down as soon as possible," state news agency Tass reported.

However, Lavrov also suggested that the U.S. was to blame for the current chaos, which could herald a fresh humanitarian crisis in a country ruined by more than eight years of war.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan launched Operation Peace Spring on Wednesday. The action seeks to establish a 20-mile buffer zone inside Syrian territory, currently held by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Well your boy is listening now I guess. He listens to no one else.

3. Russia is lying. Lavrov is a liar and propagandist

It is most likely that Putin pressured/persuaded Trump to leave the Kurds exposed. Russian troops have been attacking them too.

Putin wants more control in Syria.

Lavrov is lying about this to cover up Russia’s goals.

10. Your comment is spot on

Putin wants a foothold in the Middle East. He is spreading his tentacles. Scary shit, Putin's got us too.

4. What Mr. Lavrov is quoted as saying here appears to me to be

intelligent, rational, reasonable.

Many folks here, unfortunately, are jumping sharks.

5. Yes, Erdogan is a barely sentient being and cannot be held responsible

for his own actions.

W.T.F.

Yes, the U.S. is partly to blame, but no one is making Erdogan do what he wants but him.

9. What is being called "genocide" here, now,

in this case, please?

I see only propaganda. Zero facts from the ground.

12. Are you kidding?

Firing artillery and dropping bombs on civilians most certainly qualifies.

8. Shoving Trump under the bus and driving back and forth

He sounds like Trump. Next Lavrov will be saying, "Trump who? I don't know him. I might have a picture taken with him. I have pictures taken with everybody."
