Ergodan breaks silence

Wikipedia on YPG's ties to US designated terror group

Interesting that Obama was ok with sending how 30 THOUSAND TRUCKLOADS of military weapons to terrorists, but didn't want American citizens to have military style arms or even be able to buy guns if they were on an arbitrary list

In a speech on Saturday, Erdogan said that his country would not remain silent to over 30,000 weapon, equipment and ammunition-laden trucks sent by the US to northern Syria, where Kurds are operating.

I find it more than coincidental that ISIS was reduced in numbers and territory so quickly after Obama was out of office.

Have to wonder if this truck was part of that or from a separate shipment?

What's really interesting about this is that according to Wikipedia and other sources the YPG only has 20,000-30,000 members... so each member got 1-to-1.5 TRUCKLOADS of weapons, ammunition, and equipment.

For a medium duty truck that is 20,000 to 30,000lbs of stuff for each YPG member. Anybody believe that the YPG was the only group getting stuff?

I'd need to run some more numbers, but that sounds like enough weapons, ammunition, and equipment to supply the YPG, the rest of the SDF, and the entire Free Syrian army, Daesh in Syria, Daesh in Iraq, and to sell arms to other terrorists around the world as well.

CIA Operation: Timber Sycamore

Newsweek: EU shocked at amount of EU weapons found in the hands of Daesh in Iraq and Syria

CIA weapons for rebels sold to arms dealers

It's like a scaled up operation Fast and Furious with a much bigger body count.
