US President Donald Trump has approved supplying weapons to Kurdish forces fighting so-called Islamic State (IS) in Syria, the Pentagon says.
Will this move drive Turkey out of Nato and straight into Putin's arms?. Or, worse, could it make Turkey become a full blown enemy of western countries?
Personally, I think its a move that should have happened years ago and may have prevented many of the atrocities we've seen in Syria. But once ISIS are destroyed, I believe it is delusion to think that the Kurds won't then use those arms to carve out their own homeland out of bits of Syria, Iraq and Turkey. A potentially dangerous situation for the region and possibly the world, depending on who the players are.
