Turkish officials estimate that 15,000 Syrian refugees are waiting on the Syrian side of the border, and expect up to 50,000 more.14:11 06.02.16 | 0 comments
The USA did a whole lot to create this mess. Lots and lots of military aid to Israel, lots of UN vetoes etc. If at this point the USA just backs away and supports neither side, the Israeli economy will go bad and the Israeli military advantage will start to erode. It is predictable that Israel will try to export all the Palestinians. But nobody wants them. Israel will be more and more forced to kill them. Meanwhile, seeing eventual defeat from the status quo, Israel will be forced into a desperate war to resolve the issues in Israel's favor before Israel get weaker and the enemies get stronger. That might easily involve nuclear attacks. It would be bad for *everybody* for Israel to become a true pariah nation. This has happened before and the USA was aloof; many millions of people died including six million Jews. The USA has a responsibility to find a way to defuse it now while the outlook is still so promising.
