    The buffer zone is not about Syria and helping the refugees. It's about killing the Kurds when the next wartime appears.

    Turkey has a vested interest in not having refugees continue to flood across the border. They have enough work to do to help their own populace

    Ropey is just mad because the Turk's allowed the humanitarian aid ships to Gaza sail from Turkey aren't you Ropey?

    It's devolving into a proxy war.

    See how well that worked out? Mad? Look at the result of that 'humanitarian aid' ship from Turkey. Since then Turkey hasn't sent another 'humanitarian aid' ship.

    Its awfully convenient for the buffer zone to be in the Kurdish areas of Syria.

    Turkey is basically the 'adult in the room' in that area of the world.
