Big Trouble Within NATO — Turkey Invaded Syria to Fight US-Backed Kurds
There is a potential for a new proxy war in Syria if Turkey aligns with Russia in its fight against the US-Backed Kurds. After ISIS was defeated in Syria, the Kurds, acting on behalf of the CIA, moved in to takeover the oil fields. Turkey, however, is fighting the Kurds in Syria because they could unite with the Kurds in Turkey to create a new state that might diminish the influence of Turkey in the region. Since Turkey always had been a reliable ally of the US in NATO, this could be the beginning of a major global power shift that would increase the chances of conflicts between US and Russia.
