    Key Points
    • The US DoD is taking Turkish threats to invade northeast Syria seriously
    • It has confirmed that it has now established an unspecified number of observation posts on the Syrian-Turkish border to deter incursions
    The US Department of Defense (DoD) indicated on 12 December that it is seriously concerned about a Turkish military operation into northeast Syria, publicly warning Ankara that this would be "unacceptable".

    Noting that the US military has established observation posts on the Turkish-Syrian border, DoD spokesman Commander Sean Robertson said, "Unilateral military action into northeast Syria by any party, particularly as US personnel may be present or in the vicinity, is of grave concern. We would find any such actions unacceptable.

    "Co-ordination and consultation between the US and Turkey is the only approach to address issues of security concern in this area," he added.

    Cmdr Robertson said the statement was a response to comments made by Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who said earlier on 12 December, "We will launch an operation east of the Euphrates within a matter of days to save it from a separatist terrorist organisation."

    Most of northeast Syria is controlled by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), which have been the US's primary partner against the Islamic State extremists in Syria. However, Turkey is concerned about the growing power of a Kurdish group that it considers to be synonymous with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

    Erdoğan reiterated his threat on 14 December, saying, "We will no longer tolerate a single day of delay … We are determined to bring peace and security to the areas east of the Euphrates."

    The Turkish military carried out airstrikes against Kurdish forces in northern Iraq rather than Syria the night before. The Ministry of Defence said more than 20 manned and unmanned aircraft attacked more than 30 targets in the Sinjar and Mount Karajak areas.

    Didnt Turkey release their attack gunship turboshaft, warship enigne, F-35 and many weapons are US originated?

    US can easily cut off these supplies and paralyses them. Looks like Turkish need to learn the hard way. :enjoy:

    Lets see what happens next.

    Use your brain some times,we have enough indigenous weapons to deal with such threats.
    The risk of losing my country as an ally weighs more.

    LOL.. Dont try to kid yourselves. Your gunship without US turboshaft will not fly, same as your warship using American LM-2500 gas turbine.. Dont tell me F-16 used a Turkish engine. Forget about the licensed built. American are no stupid to let you have all the know how of FW-100 engine. Even your Future built TF-X is based on American engine. Your BVRAAM missile are all american. Not to mention F-35 is American which Turkey buys for their amphibious warship. Can it all be replaced in very short time? No..

    Do not bite the hands that you depend on.

    Things were worse than you describe in 1970s...but we invaded Cyprus nevertheless.

    Turkish and Chinese have different mentality. Japanese invasion of China is a good example. They beat you while you were outnumbering them 10 to 1...

    Is Turkey buying F-35 a lie? Or you want to claim F-35 is made by Turkey?
    Same as FW-100 engine. Copying engine is still much better than buying from others cos when Uncle Sam is angry, even you have unlimited money yet you still cant get their engine. As least Chinese has domestic engine for our warship, submarine , tank and airplane. Even Iran is able to make engine for their own F-5E, it may not be cutting edge but better than nothing and subject to other demand.

    Feel free to rebuke my previous post with facts rather than trying pass off my post as troll to mask off Turkey handicapped. You can have all your chest thumping and bragging of how powerful Turkey is or even Turkey is the centre of the world but fact is Turkey is heavily depend on US for many critical component which Turkey is not where forseen to replace in near future.

    What is the actual reason of your moaning about Turkish industry right and left of this forum? Losing many field trials with your copy toys against Turkish institutes in many markets triggered you to troll about Turkish industry?

    LOL.. Typical one side story. I know you are desperate to drag China to Turkey level but sorry. We can stand toe to toe with US. The reduced of tariff on US auto is not permanent but temporary and depend on US as US agreed for 90days cease war.

    https://www.scmp.com/economy/china-...-may-placate-us-changing-china-90-days-wildly

    Tax on US auto parts will resume if US decide to continue tax Chinese products after 90days.

    Feel free to go there. Most of the comment are slandering and fake story. Like how Chinese cant make a domestic 1500hp diesel tank engine which is rebutted. But troll will always be troll. Keep harping on old facts and sticking to troll..

    Another typical troll tactic.. ' Chinese cant make decent turbofan and is all copy" LOL...



    https://thediplomat.com/2018/11/chinas-air-force-on-the-rise-zhuhai-airshow-2018/

    In late 2017, J-10B prototype serial 1034 made its first flight with a TVC nozzle equipped variant of the domestic WS-10 engine.



    The technical approach appears to focus on the use of actuators to move the 'petals' that form the nozzle, similar in concept to that developed by General Electric with its Axisymmetric Vectoring Exhaust Nozzle (AVEN) and Pratt & Whitney's Pitch-Yaw Balance Beam Nozzle (PYBBN). Even US has so far not materialize such concept while Chinese has done so... Clearly, a Chinese forerunner TVC turbofan.

    Turkey and China are different sized countries. Of course, there will be technical repercussions against Turkey for standing up to some US policies which are not beneficial for Turkey. I dont understand what you expect us to do, just bow down and kicked around? There is no such a world order that one country feeds the other small countries. US is powerful due to its colloborators, not just by itself. How much powerful military power US have is irrelevant. You are delusional to think that China or US can withstand the impact of every other nation turning them their backs. This kind of arrogance is one of the reasons empires go down. Sorry to wake you up, but either China or US is not global powers by themselves; unless they dont intend to transform the Earth into nuclear wasteland fully.
