The London Straits Convention of 13 July 1841, ended the Ottoman Empire's (Turkey's) exclusive use of the Bosporus Straits.

Ever since the Treaty of San Stefano 1878 made the Bosporus Straits accessible the Russian Empire for their Russian Ships to travel from the Russian Naval Base at Crimea to the Mediterranean Sea.

The Soviet Syrian Agreement of 1971 made the Syria Port of Tartus into a Strategic U.S.S.R. (Russian Federation) Naval Base, as required for U.S.S.R. Naval Ships coming thru the Bosporus Straits from U.S.S.R. Crimea Naval Bases to the Mediterranean Sea to refuel.

1990s Syrian President Assad became a U.S. Ally allowing the use of Syrian Airbases and Syrian Ports to attack U.S. Ally Iraq, while U.S. Ally Turkey refused to allow the U.S. to use U.S. Airbases at U.S. Ally Turkey to attack U.S. Ally Iraq, Iraqis President Hussein a U.S. Ally since before the 1980 to 1990 Iran Iraq Wars.

During the Iran Iraq Wars the 30 Million Kurds turned Traitor and fought on the side of Fanatical Muslim Ayatollah Khomeni's Iran aganist U.S. Ally Iraq. After the Iran Iraq Wars U.S. Ally President Hussein's Iraqis Military forced the Traitor Kurdistanis (Kurds) into U.S. Ally Turkey, Eastern Syria, Northern Iraq.

After Democrat U.S. President Obama got the U.S. Kicked Out of Iraq by the Ally of Iran, the Millions of Iranians living at Iraq, The Shia of Iraq, that had also turned Traitor during the Iran Iraq Wars and fought against U.S. Ally Iraq.

Without the U.S. at Iraq, the Kurdistanis aka Kurds of the Muslim Terrorist Army Ansar Al Islam started to attack U.S. Ally Syria to seize Syrian Lands to form their Fanatical Muslim Nation of Kurdistan.

Democrat President Obama sided with the Muslim Terrorist Army Ansar Al Islam as the Obama Syrian Rebels, to Overthrow U.S. Ally President Assad of Syria same as Democrat President Obama sided with Al Quada's Ansar Al Shariah as the Obama Libyan Rebels to Overthrow U.S. Ally President Gaddaffi of Libya a U.S. Ally since 2006. The Democrat President Obama Attacks caused U.S. Ally Syria to become a Russian Federation Ally Only.
