The misadventures’ vision by Turkish Authorities could get spiraled out of control of multi-dimensional wars among many regional states’ actors for the regional regimes, currently are in precarious political survivors status, mired Middle East power struggle. Already Iranian regime has raised its objection, Syrian Alawites regime in Damascus along with their proxy Lebanon’s Hezbollah, will consider buffer zone is as an invasion; it should come with no surprise, if Shia’s lead government in Baghdad vehemently opposite the Turkish miscalculations, and Turkish government should not under estimate the ability of over 4 million Kurds who historically living in this land. President Erdogan should think twice, for this illusive vision of buffer zone inside (Rojava) Syrian Kurdistan.
If the proposed project on Kurdish land inside Syria of buffer zone wins support by the Western governments particularly the US; the Kurds will consider this buffer zone quid pro quo of nothing less than the betrayal of the Treaty of Lausanne, Switzerland that materialized on July 1924,where Kurdish people’s right revoked as nation‘s states to exist
Erdogan, whose discernment has darkened his fixation worry of seeing another multi – political parties- Kurds autonomous region created; certainly, Turkey has benefited from autonomous Kurds region in Southern Kurdistan-Iraq cross border trading commodities.
President Erdogan should have no “fear but fear itself”; most likely, he (Mr. Erdogan) wants to reinstitute the domination of Sunnah Arabs on the Kurdish land, just like the racist – Arabization policy in this Area by then Sunnah led Syrian government in early 1950’s through early 1960’s the top architect of this ruction project was Mohammed Talib Hilal then the minister of Post & Telegraph,www.Ekurd.net
the implementation of Arab domination in this area “ethnic cleansing”; however afterward the Baathist regime in Damascus didn’t soothe the darker mood any better. Turkish policy makers out to reassess furthermore unrevealed perilous project, this buffer zone inside Syria, will not be like the Cypress’ invasion in 1974, protecting Turkish minority in that Island.
Over four million Syrian Kurds will consider this buffer zone nothing less than the suppression, and invasion, they will resist like what they are fighting these days in Kobani area. Additionally, international reactions, most likely will be negative feedback to the buffer zone project inside Syria on the Kurdish territory. Turkish Media out let, should tune down its nationalist rhetoric the proposed project of realpolitik -buffer zone inside Syria, most likely will not benefit Turkey, it will destabilize region to further – uncharted territory of multi –dimensional wars. All the people of this region do not deserve reckless vision; just like Zia Goklap, and his associates trapped Ottoman Empire into unwinnable World War I, for the sake of wrong ambitious of Pan-Turanism.
It appears that the Turkish government more worries on the Kurdish issues then the nihilism terrorist states in Iraq/Syria ISIS/ISIL which indiscriminately killing anyone who disagree their brand of Islamism. The catalogs of the plan have still remained ill-defined and sketchy, but reports argue Turkey wants to obligate of a buffer zone several miles into Syria, mainly the Kurdish areas, in addition of backed up by a no fly zone; including disarming the Kurdish fighting forces in Syria, who are daily confronting terroristic state ISIS/ISIL. People contemplating creating a buffer zone inside Syria should think twice, because it will not be a “cake walk”.
