CALLING ALL TURKS

"They have stepped into a quagmire, they are trying to set themselves free."
~ Bahoz Erdal, HPG Headquarters Commander.



Remember what Erdoğan told you: "Military service is not a place where you just take it easy."

But maybe now Erdoğan will allow Turkish mothers, wives, and sisters to cover the coffins of their dead with headscarves.

In the US we never hear anything about Turkish casualties.

Renegade eye... you have to read between the propaganda headlines ;)

A PKK spokesman, Ahmed Denize, said the guerrillas had killed 81 Turkish soldiers in the past 4 days and that four guerrillas had been killed. "We have given them a strong smack," said Denize, who added that more Turkish soldiers were coming across the border every day. "And if the Turkish street knows what is really going on, they will ask for this war to be over, because of what they are losing every day," reported the Washington Post

I heard a top female Kurdish gerila commander was şehid. Any news?

Turkish soldiers are freezing like ice...

20,000 Turks in Iraqi-occupied Kurdistan and still no sign of the Bashuri Peshmerga...

Renegade Eye, it's vastly more important, in the grand scheme of things, to discover which baseball players have been using "performance-enhancing" drugs and whether or not they lied to Congress about it. That's one reason why you don't see anything in US media about the war in Kurdistan.

Of course, US media also relies completely on the official fantasies of the Turkish general staff.

I have heard nothing about a female guerrilla commander being martyred. The only thing up today was about the five Zap shehids. If I see anything on this, I'll post it.

You know what happens to Turkish soldiers if they are captured and released, right? It's better that Turkish soldiers freeze like ice than they are captured by HPG. cared for, and then released. Ask Buyukanit; he'll tell you so.
