The ‘Rojava revolution’ that turned into the policy of preserving Syria’s territorial integrity

What happened to the “Rojava Revolution”? What did Kobane mean for that revolution?

Really, what was hailing the “spirit of Eshme” of the ringleader of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) terrorist organization Abdullah Öcalan about?

What happened to those who were trying to legitimize the PKK by asking, “Which one would you like to have at our borders? A religionist terrorist organization like Daesh or the Kurds at our border? Of course, the Kurds!”

Well, what happened to those statesmen who were saying, “If a Kurdish (by which they mean PKK) state will be founded, it has to be under our control”?

We first spat out the bait, then crushed it

When the Russian jet was shot down, Turkey realized that it taken the bait in the Syrian issue. Turkey was awakened by the people who were resisting against the coup and invasion attempt on July 15, 2016 with their bare hands. It spoiled the plans to establish a terror corridor in the north of Syria with Operation Euphrates Shield which was launched on Aug. 25, 2016. It also put the structure which was trying to be established under American patronage in the north of Syria in a coma with Operation Olive Branch on Jan. 20, 2018.

Now, it is getting ready to strike the fatal blow to Kobane, which was considered as the “heart of the Rojava Revolution.”

Where is this Kobane? It is Ayn al-Arab, for God’s sake!

Turkey showed its determinacy once again in the four-nation summit that was held last week in Istanbul. By getting the support of Russia, France, and Germany, it once again demonstrated its determinacy to the whole world to protect “Syria’s territorial integrity” and to battle “the elements that are threatening this territorial integrity.”

As a result of this summit, PYD-YPG-PKK targets were shelled with howitzers.

Tests are being conducted, and tactical moves are being made one after the other. The U.S.’s response is being anticipated. The U.S. made its first move yesterday. It announced that the joint patrols in Manbij has started. Turkey, which has been stalled for months in the Manbij issue, is now going to be patrolling in the region with U.S. soldiers.

To tell the truth, if the operation in Ayn al-Arab and Tel Abyad is successful, Manbij will lose its significance.

Again, Turkey is not concerned with the oil-rich areas in the depths of Syria (like Deir Ez-Zor).

Turkey’s two arguments: the terror threat and Syria’s territorial integrity. Both were accepted!

Under these circumstances, the “east of the Euphrates” bears two important meanings for Turkey’s two arguments. The first one is the threat against Turkey. The second is the threat against Syria’s territorial integrity.

Now, both of these arguments are accepted in the global arena. Preserving Syria’s territorial integrity and Turkey’s right to defend itself against the terror threat has been accepted by international circles.

There is only one exception and that is the U.S. The U.S. is still insisting to impose the idea that shows PYD/YPG-PKK elements as “land force units in the fight against Daesh.” But the sun has risen, and everything came to light. Terrorist organizations like Daesh are only being used as instruments to help reshape the Middle East as the U.S. desires; for they are the instruments to realize the goals which were asserted by the former U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, who said: “The borders of 22 countries will change in the Middle East.”

However, the fact that the resistance line was fortified by Turkey and that international agents joined this fortification delayed the American project in Syria and in our region, for now.

Turkey is now taking steps about this matter.

Is there anyone left today who uses the phrase, “the Rojava Revolution” or who shouts “Kobane”?

So, what happened to that revolution? Or were we just hallucinating from the beginning?

If the footage of the child molester had not emerged…

If the footage of the child molester had not emerged, would he have gotten away with it?

The footage of a filthy incident has emerged. In the video, a pervert is harassing a little girl. He is trying to deceive her, he is trying to convince her to go with him. Thank God, the little girl doesn’t go with that scoundrel.

After a complaint was made the villain was detained. Then the public prosecutor’s office released him after he gave his testimony…

Then, suddenly the footage came out. And everyone watched the whole thing. Again, the pervert was detained. Eventually, the court arrested him.

If the video footage had not emerged, this pervert would continue harassing the same child or the other children in that neighborhood.

The same pervert would be still strolling among us and doing various disgusting deeds.

Because, before the video came out, the prosecutor’s office just released him after taking his testimony.

Since we don’t have security cameras everywhere…And since all the security cameras cannot record everything… Shouldn’t security forces, the prosecutor’s office and the courts be approaching the suspects of child abuse cases with more suspicion?

Should there always be camera footage to arrest someone in the cases like violence against children and women, sexual abuse or rape?

Should there always be an obvious evidence to prove these things?

Is it enough to release that pervert just because he said, “I didn’t do it”?

Is there such a thing for a pervert as good behavior?

By the way, who will guarantee that this pervert won’t be released after the first trial?

The deterring factor of a sentence should be brought up on the agenda once again with this incident. From child abuse to violence against women, determining a level of punishment that would blow the minds of those who commit these acts is an important factor to deter them from the act.

All I am saying is that after this incident which occurred in the Ortahisar district of Turkey’s Trabzon province, we definitely need to discuss elevated punishment for “child sexual abuse” crimes and the necessity for detention in such cases as soon as possible.

What do you say?

So, we were also discussing the “death penalty” issue? What happened to it?

If justice will not be secured by the courts, if the justice will not be secured by the state, everyone will try to establish their own justice… God forbid!
