Germany Accuses Turkey of Risking IS Resurgence with Offensive


Turkey "is willingly risking further destabilizing the region and a resurgence of IS" (Islamic State) by attacking northeastern Syria, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Wednesday. 

"Syria needs stability and a political process... however, the Turkish offensive now threatens to cause a new humanitarian disaster," Maas said in a statement, adding that Berlin would "urge Turkey to end its offensive and to pursue its security interests peacefully."

Germans used to have the reputation, at least to me, of rationality in things that didn't matter but were nice, like cakes and motorcycles. This comment by this guy isn't German at all, by that standard. Maybe that's why he said it. I use "he" without discriminatory intent.
