PKK’s War of Choice lacks Kurdish public support in Turkey- YPG Terror in Syria

"The PKK's - WAR OF CHOICE- lacks Kurdish public support in Turkey"

As long as the lying war whore media, alongside the phony whoring alternatives, continue to portray Turkey or "Hitler Erdogan" as the aggressor in the events current in Turkey. I will continue to expose their lies! Not because I'm a fan of Erdogan. I'm not a fan at all. It's simply because Truth Exists and the truth is the PKK started this fight

Armed PKK fighters in Turkey's cities- Where do they get the means to wage war?

The cost of the recent low-intensity urban warfare between Turkey and the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) is becoming clearer by the day. To respond to the PKK’s attempt to turn the Kurdish southeast of Turkey into a "mini Syria" by initiating urban-warfare, the government imposed curfews on 17 districts in seven cities. This has affected the lives of 1.3 million people. Official statistics estimate that more than 100,000 people have fled their homes as a result of this fighting.
 In order to RESPOND to the PKK's terror in southeast Turkey, initiating URBAN WARFARE, the government imposed curfews. Lets be real, would anyone reading here,  want armed, masked fighters in their cities & towns using them as human shields to wage urban warfare for an imperial political agenda?

Smart money tells me there is no one that wants this type of activity going on in their cities and towns- Yet, the PKK chose to undertake exactly this tactic. 
 Flashback: Previous post from July 28/2015: PKK Ended Ceasefire Weeks Ago? A stream of the latest news  PKK announces end of cease-fire, mobilizes guerillas
 The Kurdish Communities Union (KCK), an umbrella network that includes the PKK, announced on Saturday that the cease-fire which was declared via a message from the PKK's imprisoned leader Abdullah Öcalan in 2013 has ended
 As I've stated for months now- The PKK admit they broke the truce. In their own words. They announced it, themselves!
 They are not serving the interests of the Kurdish people resident in Turkey- no matter how much the media alt and mainstream lie. And lying they are. Pushing the NATO agenda, while the ordinary Kurdish people suffer at the hand of NATO backed extremists
According to the Human Rights Associations, over 400 PKK members, police and soldiers have died, and around 350 civilians have lost their lives. The government vowed that the military operations will continue so long as the PKK sticks to its urban-warfare strategy and forcibly imposes itself as de-facto public authority in the Kurdish cities and towns in Turkey.
When I find the post on PKK annexing Turkish territory by force, I will relink it!
If anyone can help me, please do?
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that as long as the PKK continues with its trench politics, there will be no return to the talks. Though this statement seems uncompromising and unyielding on the first reading, it sets out the condition and illustrates the openness for the resumption of talks, which is the cessation of the PKK’s urban-warfare strategy.
 Erdogan is clearly saying stop the trench warfare 'politics' and I'm open to  talking. The PKK continues on with it's terroristic ways
As an indirect response, the Democratic Society Organisation (DTK), which serves as an umbrella organisation for the various Kurdish parties and initiatives including the People’s Democratic Party (HDP), convened an extraordinary congress in Diyarbakir on 27 December 2015.
While strongly supporting the PKK’s new urban warfare strategy, the congress produced a 14-point communique which requested a significant level of power devolution and sharing of sovereignty as imperatives to move forward in the settlement of the Kurdish issue. All or part of these points in the communique can and will be discussed within the framework of the political settlement of the Kurdish issue. In fact, the communique itself also indicated that these points are open for public debate.
A 14 point communique is produced. Setting a framework for talks. And the points are open for public debate- Sounds reasonable, but.....

But the major fault with this congress and the communique that it produced is that it treats the PKK’s recent temporary fait accomplis which were achieved through brute force as "legitimate" and "democratic" gains. 
In fact, not long ago (30 August 2015), the HDP’s co-chairman Demirtas himself criticised the PKK’s declaration of autonomy by force. Democratic method and societal support are the sine qua non for the legitimately achieving political goals.
Which means Demirtas made clear that armed terrorism and forcible annexation are not legitimate means to achieve political goals- Still the PKK terrorizes the people- Mostly the Kurdish people
Both of these are glaringly absent in the PKK’s recent strategy. Particularly, despite all the PKK’s appeals, the societal participation in the PKK’s new strategy is almost negligible.
A significant portion of the Kurdish constituency holds the PKK responsible for this recent fight that wreaks havoc on their lives.
 See image again? Understand why the Kurdish constituency holds the PKK responsible for ruining their lives?
Armed PKK fighters  in Turkey's cities- Where do they get the means to wage war?

Despite this, the PKK seems to calculate that the more these clashes endure, the more it is likely that the people will forget why this entire calamity happened in the first place. Instead, they will focus on the outcomes and outgrowths of these clashes. The curfews and the government’s attempt to reinstate public order in the PKK-occupied places will inevitably negatively affect the lives of the ordinary citizens. The PKK appears to believe that it can capitalise on this feeling by turning the growing public angst and frustration against the government.
I hope the people never forget who brought this fight to their homes! NATO backed fighters known as the PKK.
This is the political psychology that the PKK bets upon. But the interviews that have thus far been conducted with the victims of this fighting show that this calculation is only partially valid. These interviews have revealed growing public anger towards the government in the affected places. But these interviews failed to register any considerable sympathy towards the PKK for initiating this urban warfare strategy.
To the contrary, the Kurdish public seems to hold the PKK equally accountable for their recent suffering. The low-level public support, a fact that has also been openly recognised by one of the top PKK leaders, Duran Kalkan, when he complained about the apathy of the Kurdish youth towards this recent fight, confirm this point. And this also reveals that whereas the public knows where to direct its anger, it is yet to know where to turn to for hope to escape from its current predicaments. It is apt to describe most of the Kurdish public living under this recent urban fighting as experiencing a state of emotional flux.
In this respect, the government should be careful not to hand the PKK a psychological victory. The PKK’s current war of choice lacks public support. The majority of people don’t believe that the PKK’s recent strategy is justified. The main thing that can change the present public perception in favour of the PKK will be the image of the Kurdish politicians being victimised and unfairly treated by the state.
In this regard, Diyarbakir and Ankara courts’ filing of the lawsuits against the HDP co-chairmen Selahattin Demirtas and Figen Yuksekdag are ill-conceived and counter-productive. So is President Erdogan’s support for the lifting of the parliamentary immunity of these politicians so they can be brought in front of the judges.
This current toxic political climate can’t go on indefinitely. In one way or another, the talks need to resume. It is crucial to not to burn all bridges and exhaust all possible interlocutors. The communication channels needs to be kept open.
I hope Erdogan and more legitimate Kurdish actors can resolve this issue- The HDP party is compromised, it's doubtful they can be trusted. But, if the Kurdish people can do no better, then perhaps the HDP should really & truly concern themselves with the Kurds in Turkey, as opposed to serving NATO's destabilization agenda!
Of all the Kurdish actors, the HDP, irrespective of all its flaws and shortcomings, is the one that has the democratic legitimacy and political mandate. The government will be wise to maintain the dialogue with the HDP. The HDP should reciprocate and adopt a more responsible position, and strive to become more than the verbatim mouthpiece of the PKK.

In all honesty, I expect the HDP to carry on as they are-

Yet another news item demonstrating NATO's YPG terrorists ethnically cleansing Arabs:

Driving Arab families out of homes is against humanity’

Woman and Child Committee Chairperson MP Roua Bader Al-hayki has strongly condemned the brutal acts of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militias that ruthlessly pushed the Syrian Arab families out of their homes. 
She was speaking to the DT News in the event of the Amnesty International’s report, published in our newspaper, describing the plight of the Arab families in Syria. 
According to the report, the YPG, the military wing of the Kurdish political party, razed the village of Husseiniya in Northern Syria to the ground and the Arab families, who had been living there for decades were ruthlessly driven out of their homes.
About 90 to 95 houses were destroyed and all the Arab families were asked to leave. They were not allowed to take the food or clothes with them.  Many more villages in the Kurdish occupied areas faced the same situation.

“As a Woman and Child committee chairperson, I am concerned about the women and children refugees left without homes,” she remarked.
She said it was quite unfortunate that the number of refugees was increasing day by day.
“I have no words to express my sorrow. I cannot imagine how the women and children will be spending their days and nights without any shelter,” she said.
She said that the silence of the Arab world towards this incident was not digestible, as those driven out of their homes were Arabs. 
“Why are the Arabs not responding?” enquired Roua adding, “Driving Arab families out of their homes is against humanity.”
 As long as the sainted NATO backed Kurdish militias do the NATO's work no one says anything.
Save for me.
