Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today threatened Europe he will send 3.6 million refugees to the continent if the invasion of Syria is defined as an occupation. ‘Hey EU, wake up. I say it again: if you try to frame our operation there as an invasion, our task is simple: we will open the doors and send 3.6 million migrants to you,’ Erdogan said in a speech to parliament on Thursday. He bragged that 109 ‘terrorists’ had been killed, as the defence ministry announced two border villages had been ‘cleared of terror,’ referring to Kurdish fighters.  The invasion has been widely condemned around the world, with European leaders and President Donald Trump warning Erdogan he risked exacerbating suffering in the war-ravaged region and allowing ISIS to flourish after the US-backed Kurds ousted the jihadists earlier this year. Kurdish authorities have claimed last night’s shelling of a prison holding ISIS fighters of more than 60 nationalities was a ‘clear attempt’ to help them escape.   ‘These attacks on prisons holding Daesh (ISIS) terrorists will lead to a catastrophe the consequences of which the world may not be able to handle later on,’ the statement said.  Turkey’s commandos moved against Kurdish militia last night after the artillery and air force pounded northern Syria with a barrage of shelling, sending thousands fleeing. Terrified residents were seen leaving on foot, by car and piling rickshaws high with their possessions as they left their homes – a grim echo of how they sought refuge from the Islamic State only a few years before.  Trump – who ordered American troops out of the area – said Turkey’s incursion was a ‘bad idea’ and said that Washington ‘does not endorse this attack.’ Nick Note: What your dictator elect forgot to mention is he also ordered the Pentagon to lift the no fly zone over the curds so Syria could bomb the shit out of civilians and level defenseless towns… Did  Fox News also forget to tell you that Trump ordered the Pentagon to provide targeting data of Kurd (US Allies) positions to the Syrians… That way the genocide would be easier! Well shit what to do you think about that?
