Soaking Rain Marks Early Beginning of Winter

Turkey and the Kurds
James M. Dorsey, BESA

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan appears to have miscalculated the fallout of what may prove to be a foolhardy intervention in Syria and neglected alternative options that could have strengthened Turkey’s position without sparking the ire of much of the international community.
