    ISTANBUL — Turkey sent tanks, warplanes and special operations forces into northern Syria on Wednesday in its biggest plunge yet into the Syrian conflict, enabling Syrian rebels to capture an important Islamic State stronghold within hours.

    The operation, assisted by American warplanes, is a significant escalation of Turkey’s role in the fight against the Islamic State, the militant extremist group ensconced in parts of Syria and Iraq that has increasingly been targeting Turkey.

    By evening, Syrian rebel fighters declared that they had taken control of the Islamic State stronghold, the town of Jarabulus and its surroundings, which had been the militant group’s last major redoubt near the Turkish border. Turkish officials said one rebel fighter was killed but no Turkish troops died.

    Thank you, Mr President!

    At the White House, President Obama’s chief spokesman, Josh Earnest, called the Turkish assault “an indication of important progress” in the campaign against the Islamic State.

    Earlier, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. signaled support for the goals of the operation — clearing Islamic State militants from their remaining border stronghold and rolling back recent advances by Syrian Kurdish militias, which Turkey considers its primary enemy.

    Mr. Biden had traveled to the Turkish capital, Ankara, on Wednesday to meet with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a time of high tensions between the two countries after the failed coup in Turkey last month. But the timing of the joint offensive and some strong words of support from Mr. Biden seemed to show an easing of the strains.

    Turkey went into Syria to fight the Kurds. Isis was the pretext. It is sad how easy the Obama administration is fooled.

    This is the same move Obama made when he accepted the Nobel Peace Price. Just before he started wars, without the approval of congress, in Libya, Syria and Yemen.

    I find it scary when one branch of government steals power. Congress is too chicken shit to stand up for itself. It's scary if you ask me. No one man should have that kind of power.
