With our neighbors?

It could not be Syria or Iran, because they dont give a damn about the PKK.

It must be Iraq. Iraq needs a pro-Turkish regime so that they can conduct a real and serious antiterror program.

Iraq is owned by Iran. The only Turkish ally there is the KDP half of the KRG and part of the Turkmen front that isn't Salihi hashd


Seems important.

I get the feeling Erdogan is trying to build an Arab alliance through the KDP against Iran, but Iran has been shooting down all these strategies so far.

Relevant to foreign policy - Turkmen and Christian (minority quota) seats have been removed from the KRG by Iraq (Iran)

Our Hashd friend is blaming Barzani for it 😂, despite this move weakening Barzani and strengthening Talabani (Iran)


Edit: forgot link


The Kurds, who shouted for democracy and brotherhood of peoples at every opportunity, have eliminated Turkmens and Christians from the parliament together with Iraq after gaining power.

Kurdish racism is not only the enemy of Turks and Christians, but also the enemy of all humanity.

Are they coordinating with us or to block us ?
I am not sure what is going on right now. We will learn what's that all about. I don't think they can block us in any way. May be they will be posing as they prevent PKK and keep the situation under control while we all know that, they don't posses any real capability to deal with this problem.

Iraqi army presence in the KRG?
Yep! Not the first time tho. We killed a couple of officers including a General while they were meeting with the PKK in the past. Let's hope this deployment will serve a different purpose.

The military point established by the Iraqi army (border guards) in Balinda is facing the Turkish Armed Forces.

The first video was published by Iraq. At the beginning of the video, the checkpoint is seen while going north from Balinda village (to the eastern line of the Claw-Lock op area).

In the rest of the video, there are US-made M1224 International MaxxPro MRAP with a mine-sweeper mounted on it, same model MRAP with cage integration and Hummers.

In the rest of the video, it is seen that they brought more bulldozers, and Iraqi border guards set up a checkpoint in the area. They set up two tents where they opened a position yesterday.

They have established bases in at least 4 different places on the valley, satellite images will come soon and we will see the exact points. In the second video, their movements over the valley can be seen again.

Iran. They've circumvented Barzani - TR relationship and the autonomy of the KDP through recent power plays and have reduced Turkish influence in Iraq, isolated Turkish-friendly groups or turned them to Iran.

Iran work tirelessly to undermine us in every direction. On the other hand what are we doing to counter them ? Nothing. We should have taught them a good lesson a long time ago, but instead this government keeps bowing to them like nothing happened.
