    Does the building of this border wall indicate at least that some in Turkey have come to the firm belief of respect for territorial integrity of Syria ? And if so , I hope this trend continiues . And forces loyal to terrorists can not cross border . I do not see any border guards in position . Turkey and Syria army and syrian kurds can jointly guard border .

    Everyone welcomes any genuine attempt by Turkey to fight terrorism . However a point to remember about kurdish advances against terrorists in syria . And Turkish concerns about an independent kurdish state on it's border with Syria . This is a genuine concern . One that affects Iraq and Iran also . And can be a cause of great instability .

    The Americans might like such an entity . One that they control . With vast oil reserves in Iraq . A thorn in the side for Iran and Turkey . However this remains a fear and a probability . It is not yet realized . And since kurds offer a strong offense against the terrorists . As long as they fight . Then for now they should advance where they can .

    After the takfiri terrorists are defeated . Then all forces must return home . There can be no territorial gain by force . This includes the kurds . I am sure that if they refused . And at that time separatist elements pushed for independent kurdish region . That they will be opposed by countries in the region . Including syria itself and turkey and Iraq and Iran .

    But that is for the future . For now the aim should be defeat of terrorists . Backed by monarchist and imperialist forces . Acting against democratic movements in the region .

    My personal view .
