Why did Turkey violate the border? What is the reason? There should be a reason. There is a reason why this is happening. That reason must first be resolved. So long as this reason is not resolved, you cannot talk about the fallout.” He continued with, “As the Kurdistan Region, we have a principle. Our principle is that the territories of the Kurdistan Region must in no way be used to attack, to cause violence against our neighbors. This policy as a principle stands the same for Turkey, Iran or Syria. We do not accept, nor do we allow the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to be used to cause violence in those countries,” adding that, “It is not acceptable for the PKK to launch military operations from the territories of Kurdistan, and then return to the Kurdistan Region.” Barzani stated.

I just think back to those interviews you conducted years ago with the YPG volunteer fighters like PJ, Mitchel Clark and, especially, with the one with Mike. (Some of the greatest interviews this site has ever posted, by the way) I went back to dig up Mike's quote when asked about the future of the region...
"A continued shit show. Iraq and KRG aren’t going to get along, Rojava and whoever wins in Syria aren’t going to get along. Turks are always going to making shit difficult.. Your guess is as good as mine."
He pretty much nailed it, as far as the continued violence goes. Although, I suppose you didn't need to channel Nostradamus to predict that one for you... the shit show continues. It's the show that never ends.
