We have chronicled the progress of Turkey's President Erdogan as he moved to make himself Sultan of the new Ottoman Empire, the way he acted as a courier, ordering his military forces to supply the ISIS terrorists in Syrian and Iraq with armaments, while he and his family profited from illicit oil trade, buying crude oil stolen from well id Syria and Iraq and selling it in western markets.
In fact we even reported how witnesses said everybody in Turkey was aware of Erdogan's criminaly. In spite of all this, and Turkey's appalling record on human rights, European Union and NATO leaders courted courted the dictator, Europe offering cash and EU membership in return for help slowing the tide of illegal immigrants flowing into Europe, the US led NATO military alliance for Erdogan's support in the effort to depose Syria's President Assad, whose Shia Muslim regime presented the last obstacle to a US / Saudi Arabian plan to push a pipe line from oil and gas fields on the Persian Gulf to the oil terminals on the eastern Mediterranean coast.
Now we hear that, somewhat belatedly, there are signs of a movement to overthrow the Erdogan regime in Turkey. While such a move would have the support of Russia, the USA and NATO would not be happy to lose such an easily bribed ally as the corrupt Turkish regime. So the would could be about to move yet another step closer to World War Three.
The situation in Turkey is bad and getting worse. It’s not just the deterioration in security amidst a wave of terrorism. Public debt might be stable, but private debt is out-of-control, the tourism sector is in free-fall, and the decline in the currency has impacted every citizen’s buying power. There is a broad sense, election results notwithstanding, that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is out-of-control. He is imprisoning opponents, seizing newspapers left and right, and building palaces at the rate of a mad sultan or aspiring caliph. In recent weeks, he has once again threatened to dissolve the constitutional court. Corruption is rife. His son Bilal reportedly fled Italy on a forged Saudi diplomatic passport as the Italian police closed in on him in an alleged money laundering scandal. His outbursts are raising eyebrows both in Turkey and abroad. Even members of his ruling party whisper about his increasing paranoia which, according to some Turkish officials, has gotten so bad that he seeks to install anti-aircraft missiles at his palace to prevent airborne men-in-black from targeting him in a snatch-and-grab operation.Turks — and the Turkish military — increasingly recognize that Erdogan is taking Turkey to the precipice. By first bestowing legitimacy upon imprisoned Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan with renewed negotiations and then precipitating renewed conflict, he has taken Turkey down a path in which there is no chance of victory and a high chance of de facto partition. After all, if civil war renews as in the 1980s and early 1990s, Turkey’s Kurds will be hard-pressed to settle for anything less, all the more so given the precedent now established by their brethren in Iraq and Syria.
Erdogan long ago sought to kneecap the Turkish military. For the first decade of his rule, both the US government and European Union cheered him on. But that was before even Erdogan’s most ardent foreign apologists recognized the depth of his descent into madness and autocracy. So if the Turkish military moves to oust Erdogan and place his inner circle behind bars, could they get away with it?
Turkey is blackmailing the EU over the migrant crisis, Vojtech Filip, leader of the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia province of the Czech Republic commented on the EU-Turkey summit in Brussels. "It is necessary to strictly reject an attempt by Turkey to blackmail the European Union," the Filip said.
The opinion is not held only by political leaders of the left in Czech politics, prominent figures in parties of the right right shared his opinion, including the Civic Democratic Party, the website Ceske Noviny reported.
According to him, like a stereotypical blackmailer The Turkish government in Ankara is not implementing the agreements it reached earlier with Brussels, and will not say what happened to the money it was given 'for help in reducing the flow of illegal immigrants', in fact the numbers of illegal immigrants increased. Instead of acting to stop the traffic from Turkey to the Greek Islands, Turkey's gangster- like President Recep Erdogan simply demands a few €billions more without offering any firm guarantees that he will keep his end of the bargain. It is then an indication of how corrupt the politicians of the EU and USA are that, in order to further their own geopolitical goals they are prepared not only to deal with these gangsters but to sacrifice all the advances towards nationhood the people of Kurdistan have made over several decades to Erdogan's territorial ambitions.
Treasure "Trove" Of ISIS Documents Detail Secret Oil Trade With Turkey
We detail the route by which ISIS transports illegal, undocumented crude to Turkey via Zakho-based smugglers and how that crude ends up at Ceyhan where tanker rates seem to mysteriously spike around ISIS-related oil events. All of this, we suggested, was done with the help of the Turkish government up to and including Erdogan's son Bilal who owns a shipping company
