Ukraine: An Impending Coup & Military Dictatorship?

Around September of this year I started to pick up bits and pieces of information in varying media accounts that led me to believe that there will be yet another regime change in Ukraine. This one will be another western backed coup same as the first one that forced out Yanukovych.  But, instead of the pretense of 'democracy' we will be looking at a full fledged fascist military coup backed by the Oligarchs- You know who these people are? They are modern day war lords, dual nationals (Israelis) and completely despotic.

It was a Daily Beast article from today that inspired me to finally finish the post I began a couple of months ago! I will link the DB article at the bottom.

Let's go back a few months to my first mention of this possibility:

Ukraine:Trident/NATO games. NATO arms. NATO military dictatorship planned?
 The future of Ukraine- A military dictatorship?

Fighters from the battalion told the Guardian last month they expected a "new revolution" in Ukraine that would bring a more decisive military leader to power, in sentiments similar to those of many Azov fighters
The jaw flappin fighers were from the Aidar battalion- They were expressing the same sentiments as the Azov battalion.

In October of this year, I tried again to broach this subject- but time ain't always on  my side, sadly
One of the participants here had noticed my September comment and left this

Also keep in mind that Bandar rumor floated ahead of Sochi and the Chechnya angle in view of latest bombing and your call on regime change in Ukraine which is gathering steam.
 I can't tell you how happy it made me that someone had actually paid attention to my writing AND remembered that tidbit from the month before.

Saved from my October file......

The appointment of a man, who could fill the role of Military Dictator quite nicely!
Notice I said, role?


National Guard chief Stepan Poltorak

Yahoo

National Guard chief Stepan Poltorak, one of Ukraine's most revered soldiers, was confirmed as defence minister.

 Poltorak told lawmakers in a brief but combative address that his top priority rested in building a reliable defence against Russia through a brand new army that Kiev hopes to equip with NATO weapons.
 RT
The new army of the coup-imposed government in Ukraine has begun training exercises outside Kiev. Although the National Guard’s roles are law enforcement and border protection, many in the country’s east fear the military unit will work against them.
The National Guard is designed to be 60,000-strong and completely independent from the country’s military and police.
Recruitment across Ukraine began on March 13, with around 20,000 people already joining the new uniformed service.
Most volunteers have battle experience. Most of them protected the rights and freedom of citizens of Ukraine at Maidan,” Stepan Poltorak, a commander with the Ukrainian Interior Troops,
 If Poltarak and his followers overthrow Poroshenko, killing him or not, it will be with the blessing & the weapons, provided by NATO.

Related: Poltorak and his 'defence batallions'   

NATO won't be alone in assisting this coup.  Help and money will be forthcoming from those oligarchs mentioned in the first paragraph above and one in particular in this previous post: US NOT Confirming Claimed Russian Incursion as Kiev says 200 Rebels Killed


Kolomoisky and his t shirt: Ukrainian Trident resembling the Jewish Menorah in the red-black colors of the Bandera flag.

Quoting from previous post:

The strongest Jew in Ukraine, perhaps in the entire world, may have already decided that he enjoys frontline politics and to stay on, to try and become the main power behind the scenes in Ukraine’s future. 
If Poltorak leads the coup, Kolomoisky will be the man in charge.

And finally from the Daily Beast............ Ukraine Militias Warn of Anti-Kiev Coup

The men behind Ukraine’s nationalist militias are looking to replace the fumbling government in Kiev one way or another.
The burly man with the close-cropped silver hair and his two companions ask not to be identified too closely when they talk to me in some dowdy offices near an ancient monastery overlooking the Dnieper River. They want to be described as “patriotic businessmen,” they say, and one of them, whom we’ll call Alexander, is a very, very rich patriotic businessman.
They have been funding Ukrainian self-defense militias.
 They predict the government of President Petro Poroshenko may not last another three months. “That’s optimistic,” says Alexander.
 Winter clothing for the 15,000 or so volunteers in 37 pro-unity militias is uppermost on the minds of their patrons—the temperatures here are turning sub-zero now and the first snow of winter flecked Ukraine’s capital this week
The winter clothing issue has just been taken care of by Canada-

 Yup Canada "donated" 22 million dollars worth of winter clothing- as people are homeless and cold on the streets..
Canada will send the Ukrainian army (the private army) more than $22 million worth of cold-weather gear, including jackets and boots, Defence Minister Rob Nicholson said Wednesday.
The donations come from surplus military stocks.
The green clothing dates from the late 1990s, said a Defence official, who also indicated that white camouflage winter smocks will not be among the donated items being loaded on a C-17 transport for a flight Thursday.
The Department of Foreign Affairs will follow up with an additional $5 million in non-lethal aid early in the new year, including a field hospital, tactical radios, night vision goggles and bomb-disposal equipment, Nicholson said.
That portion of the donation will be purchased directly from commercial suppliers and shipped by sea.
Digression over, back to the Daily Beast 

Alexander and his colleagues are looking to battalion commanders who have been elected to the new parliament to start forming a voting bloc to force through change.
They are talking about setting up a parallel defense ministry in the form of an NGO to provide greater command-and-control structure to the militias.
But in the end there is no substitute for government when it comes to war fighting.
“Poroshenko said in the summer that he needed a new parliament and government to get things moving,” says Alexander. “Well we have a new parliament and there are no excuses left,” he says darkly.

I despise NGO's. As readers know I call them "NO GOOD ORGANIZATIONS" because they are no dam good! They perpetuate an illusion to fool the masses

Expect the war on Russia to heat up .

NATO's Secret Armies in Europe; Interview with Daniel Ganser

Fort Carson Troops Will Deploy to Ukraine?

UN: Child trafficking on the Rise and UN intervention is at the heart of the problem!

NATO's Secret Armies in Europe; Interview with Daniel Ganser

"This week on SOTT Talk Radio we're discussing the biggest story never told in modern Europe: NATO’s secret warfare against European civilians. Proxy wars, false-flag terrorism, assassinations, economic warfare, color revolutions, interfering in elections... it's no secret that the U.S. establishment has done all that (and more) through its application of a psychopathic 'strategy of tension' around the world since the Second World War.
What is not generally known is that such 'secret warfare' was also taking place in Europe. For the briefest of moments, CIA and MI6 coordination of a 40-year-long, Europe-wide terror campaign - going by the code-name 'Operation GLADIO' in Italy - came to light in several European media in 1990, but the scandal was quickly buried by the rather fortuitous invasion by Saddam Hussein of Kuwait and the subsequent build-up to NATO's first 'expeditionary mission' to Iraq"

Interview linked directly below!

SOTT talk Radio- NATO

 Earlier post from today-

Fort Carson Troops Will Deploy to Ukraine?

Fort Carson Troops Will Deploy to Ukraine?

Surely looks to me that the US/NATO war machine is looking for war. Not peace. WAR.
How else to explain more American soldiers going to the Ukraine? 
 Fort Carson is located near Colorado Springs ( I had to look that up) It appears to be a long term move, or at the very least, there appears to be no end date for this deployment. Will more soldiers be sent at a later date? What’s going on?
"This is not going to be a three-week or a month deployment," said a source at the post familiar with the new mission.
The Army hasn't said how long the division troops will be overseas, leaving the deployment indefinite.
U.S. European Command said that a 100-soldier team from the 16,000-soldier division will head to Europe in early 2015 to lead ground forces in "Operation Atlantic Resolve."

"Operation Atlantic Resolve is a continued demonstration of the United States' commitment to the collective security of our NATO allies and support for our partners in Europe, in light of the ongoing ? (what ongoing intervention?)Russian intervention in Ukraine," European Command said in a news release. "The operation will remain in place as long as required to reassure our allies."

Russia's eight-month intervention (what intervention?) in Eastern Ukraine has heated up this month with reports of increased Russian military activity including more heavy tanks.
"The U.S. is committed to supporting Ukraine through this difficult challenge," Breedlove wrote on Facebook on Wednesday. "The international community is imposing ever-tightening economic sanctions on Russia in response to its illegal annexation of Crimea and their destructive military actions and support to forces in Eastern Ukraine."
The Fort Carson soldiers will play a role in deterring Russia by building U.S. ties to allies in the region including former Soviet republics in the Baltic.

Leaders from the division will run a series of training exercises to ensure American forces are ready to fight alongside partners.

Leaders at the post are still developing plans for how they will support the open-ended troop commitment in Europe. Exact dates of when soldiers will leave haven't been announced.
This next paragraph made me go hmmmmm.... Curious?
Pulling the 4th Infantry Division to rotate into Europe has long precedent. The division spent much of the Cold War training to deploy to Europe for battle. Starting in 1977, the division was periodically flown to Europe so its soldiers could train to fight with prepositioned gear they retrieved from storage depots.
Flown to Europe to train to fight? with prepositioned gear, first hidden and then retrieved from storage depots . Sounds like Gladio style ops,  no?
The division has been redesigned in recent years and has fewer heavy tanks and artillery pieces.

The changes, though, left the division well-suited to European war, with infantry troops to tackle tough terrain, tanks to fight on open plains and eight-wheeled Stryker vehicles for urban battles.
Urban battles?

ISIS Supplying Half of all Afghan Heroin Entering Europe

Interesting?

 Russia is making this claim and of course that means it is to be ridiculed.
But, knowing the history of drug running, CIA and the funding black ops I can't see how this can be dismissed or derided.
Bearing in mind that by all appearances ISIS seems to be NATO covert army.
The ability for it to move mass quantities of heroin from Afghanistan (occupied largely by the US under that giant NATO umbrella) to fund it's operations at an arms length seems in keeping with other sordid episodes in history of this type
Iran/Contra of course comes to mind. But that wouldn't be the only instance of drugs for covert ops.
First the latest and then I will relink some older posts from myself and AP @ Twelfth Bough

Terrorist groups including Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and Al-Shabaab are known to have obtained funds from drug smuggling.

Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN) has claimed that the Islamic State (IS) extremist group is obtaining a “fabulous” income by providing half of the supply of heroin from Afghanistan to Europe.

In comments widely reported in the Russian media on November 26, FSKN head Viktor Ivanov said that the “large-scale transit of Afghan heroin acts as a renewable financial base for the functioning of the Islamic State group, which obtains fabulous profits by providing half of the total heroin supply to Europe via destabilized Iraq and some African countries.”
Ivanov said that the foreign military presence in Afghanistan would lead to the growth of “antigovernment armed groups” in that country. The FSKN chief noted that the United States had “already announced that reducing the number of troops [in Afghanistan] has been delayed until 2015.”
“It is clear that without the elimination of large-scale drug production in Afghanistan, there is no point in talking about resolving conflicts in these countries,” Ivanov said.
Ivanov appears to suggest a connection between large scale drug production and occupation
In October, Spanish intelligence said that European cells of the Islamic State group and other extremist groups were using ties to the illegal drug trade to finance operations in Iraq and Syria.

Spanish intelligence sources said that extremists in the country also used knowledge of drug-smuggling routes to export arms and other contraband to Iraq and Syria from the European Union, "Newsweek" reported.
"Newsweek" cited Haras Rafiq of the antiradicalization think tank the Quilliam Foundation who said that illegal trade was in the “heritage” of Islamic State, which took over from Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Terrorist groups including Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and Al-Shabaab are known to have obtained funds from drug smuggling.
In May, the Australian warship "H.M.A.S. Darwin" seized over 400 kilograms of heroin from a smuggling vessel off the coast of Somalia. The drugs had an estimated street value of $132 million.The ship’s commander, Terry Morrison, said the haul “removed a major source of funding for terrorist and criminal networks including Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and Al-Shabaab."

UN: Child trafficking on the Rise and UN intervention is at the heart of the problem!

The despicable UN is at the forefront of this rise in human trafficking, misery and exploitation.

How can the UN lament this problem, when UN sanctioned interventions are at the heart of this issue? This is simply some type of red herring.

 The idiom "red herring" is used to refer to something that misleads or distracts from the relevant or important issue.
 So the UN presenting themselves as concerned or caring about this issue is simply to distract you all from the fact that the UN is the biggest part of the problem. In fact that the UN is the very catalyst for this problem

Today's "news" Allegedly?

Overall, child trafficking has increased five percent since 2010, with girls and women accounting for 70 percent of the overall number of victims worldwide, according to the report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime.

"There is no place in the world where children, women and men are safe from human trafficking," said UNODC executive director Yury Fedotov.

The report said the global figures represented only "the tip of the iceberg", and that impunity remained a serious problem.

"It is very clear that the scale of modern-day slavery is far worse,"

Child trafficking has increased since 2010- What else has increased?  Why of course, "interventions" UN sanctioned either silently or public. Recall this post?  Psychopaths to run country after Armageddon? Clearly Armageddon has passed. which included  this pdf.

Human Trafficking: The unintended effects of UN intervention

Conclusion

These findings underscore the need to consider the impact of UN intervention, not simply on the duration of conflict, but also on human rights. 
Our work demonstrates how the UN contributes to grave human rights violations. When large numbers of foreign troops are sent to an unstable and often impoverished state he emergence of trafficking networks. 
Thus, a seemingly benevolent UN action, intended to bring peace, serves to promote a shadow economy
A seemingly 'benevolent' UN action? Phooey! Since this is a known effect... ie:  when the UN intervenes and the known outcome manifests- Increased human trafficking, exploitation and misery.
The consequence is neither unintentional nor benevolent.  Spin, lies and obfuscation aside. Just the facts!

Time to toss the UN to the curb! As an organization it is a huge part of the multitude of problems on this planet.

How Israel and the US love the Kurds. Let me count the ways....

So, I came across one article yesterday, another today, while looking for yet more facts to solidify the case that the Kurds are not victims, having no one one their side, as proclaimed by the perception managing media. This false presentation has taken in others. Has fooled them. Has caused them to believe lies. And take cheap shots at myself. Tsk. Tsk.I had thought these persons were more savvy to media manipulations.  Alas..... that was not the case.

Another curiosity?

Is it me or am I the only blogger, or one of a very few that are pointing out the collusion between Israel/NATO/US and the Kurds in all their terrorizing war making glory. Am I missing it all? I read around and the only other person mentioning the duplicity of the Kurdish elites is  Syrian Perspective Why?

And, my oh my how quickly the mainstream media is to excuse the many terror attacks perpetrated by the Kurds against many innocent persons- Particularly in Turkey, over the course of many years. All to push the agenda. Sell the lie.

 M K Bhadrakumar - 7 years ago in 2007

MK’s article is more relevent then ever when one considers what is happening as I post this!

During 1983-98 when PKK terrorism was rampant, the Turkish military conducted cross-border operations inside Iraq about 36 times. Some operations were of a large scale, involving air force and heavy armor. In 1997, troops at corps strength of up to 50,000 crossed the border and went 200 kilometers into Iraqi territory.
15 years of terrorism against Turkey and the whole time the Kurds of Iraq are firmly in bed with Israel......... 
Turkey refused to cooperate with the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. The strain persists, in spite of appearances. Meanwhile, the Kurdish militia has proved to be a valuable ally of the US. Kurdistan has since become the staging ground for US and Israeli intelligence's covert operations against Iran. It is a strategic asset in the event of any US military strike against Iran.
Over and above all, the fabulous oilfields of Kirkuk beckon US and Israeli business interests. Evidently, it is in the interests of the US and Israel that the region must remain an oasis of stability. Israel, in particular, would gain immensely if Kurdistan gained full independence.
Also, Kurdish nationalism can be a potent weapon for Washington's geostrategy. It modulates the complex triangular equations involving Turkey, Iran and Syria. The United States' ultimate intentions in Kurdistan remain obscure. Washington keeps assuring Turkey of its sympathy in fighting terrorism but does little to curb PKK activities. Barzani is diverting US arms supplies to the PKK.

Digression-Recall the fact that Barzani’s father was one of the earliest deal cutters with Israel
By the early 1960s, following the outbreak of the Kurdish rebellion against the Iraqi Ba'ath party's Arabisation policies, Molla Mustafa Barzani, father of the current Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani, held talks with Israeli officials

“In short, the escalation of PKK violence; Barzani's belligerence toward Turkey; the United States' double standards toward Turkey's "war on terror" - these form a puzzle that Turkey must figure out”
PKK Terrorists- The scarfed heads are such a familiar site- BBC


Escalation of Kurdish violence. Barzani’s belligerence and US double standards all verify or validate my proposition that Turkey is being set up, to fall.

Here is something else I informed my readers of sooo many years back regarding the Turkish military- Loyalties lie elsewhere!

 M K Bhadrakumar continues.......

“A dozen knots tie the US Army and the Turkish military, dating to doctrine that took its name from the late US president Harry S Truman and which saw the US Congress grant military and economic aid to Turkey and Greece”

The Turkish military would feel disoriented if these close ties were snapped. A similar predicament holds good for the Turkish political elite, including serious politicians (both secular-minded "Kemalists" and "Islamists"), powerful captains of industry and business, and even much of Turkey's intelligentsia weaned on Western enlightenment.

Erdogan may have tried to loosen these ties- but they are far too tight for him to unravel them all

Bringing this up to date- July 2014 Pepe Escobar

Why Israel is in love with Kurdistan

 “Iraq is breaking up before our eyes and it would appear that the creation of an independent Kurdish state is a foregone conclusion.” The analysis might have come straight from ISIS – but in fact came from none other than former bouncer and unreformed Zionist, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

What the invariably truculent Lieberman told US Secretary of State John Kerry this week pertained mostly to the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in Iraq, an autonomous region that - quite handily – is also exporting oil to Israel (the KRG angrily denies it.)
 By all practical purposes, Kurdish Peshmergas are now also in control of heavily disputed, oil-rich Kirkuk – after the ignominious withdrawal of Baghdad’s predominantly Shi’ite army as ISIS was advancing. The wily KRG president Masoud Barzani has been adamant; “We will bring all of our forces to preserve Kirkuk.”
Talk about being handed over The Big Prize on a plate; the KRG has been trying to control Kirkuk by all means necessary since the 2003 Shock and Awe. In any future scenario Kirkuk would be the absolutely fabulous gas station fueling the wealth of a prosperous Kurdish nation. Baghdad is confronted with yet another quagmire.
It’s no secret in the “Middle East” that Tel Aviv and the Kurds have had a fruitful working relationship – in military, intel and business terms - since the 1960s. It’s a no brainer Israel would instantly recognize a possible new Kurdish nation-state. No wonder Israeli President Shimon Peres, also this week, told US President Barack Obama, “the Kurds have, de facto, created their own state, which is democratic. One of the signs of a democracy is the granting of equality to women.
 So why this sudden interest in the welfare of Kurdish women? Something fishy is afoot. Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal is heavily peddling Kurdish independence. What is Tel Aviv really up to here?

The consensus narrative in Israeli media is that Kurdish independence is “good for Israel” because Kurds, well, they are not Arabs, Persians or Turks. Kurdistan – at least Iraqi Kurdistan – is seen by Tel Aviv as a “non-hostile entity” that, crucially, is not exactly touched by the plight of the Palestinians.
From a strictly Israeli point of view, Kurds are regarded as moderate, secular Muslims who have been victims – and that’s the key operative notion – of Arab chauvinism, be it on nationalist or hardcore Islamist terms. At least in theory, Kurds won’t antagonize the notion of “Jewish self-determination.
And even more crucially, projecting ahead, a Greater Kurdistan would be the ideal buffer state acting in tandem with larger Israeli strategic interests; in one go, it would simultaneously amputate Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria.

Even an independent Iraqi Kurdistan would be not only the proverbial “friend of Israel” but also a viable, prosperous state; Irbil, for instance, even though it is not Arab, wants to market itself as the Arab Capital of Tourism. And all this in a region Tel Aviv regards –paranoia included – as a basket case of failed states. What’s not to like?

Divide to conquer! As always.

So expect from now on all sorts of made-in-the-shade moves by Israel to advance the Balkanization of Iraq into a Sunni state, a Shiite state and an Iraqi Kurdistan.
.
Yet the whole saga is also overloaded with myth – such as the supposedly irreconcilable gulf between Arabs and Kurds in Iraq. For nearly 10 years there has not been a single credible poll stating that the majority of Iraqi Kurds want independence.
The Kurdish question has become increasingly explosive as the Empire of Chaos preferred Divide and Rule strategy of pitting Sunnis against Shi’ites

 What’s certain is that wishful thinking – from Tel Aviv to Washington – will keep permeating calculations about the Kurdish question, as in assuming Turkey will be allowed accession to the EU (it won’t) and thus Kurdistan will be the EU’s de facto eastern border. Bordering what? A Sunnistan across the Levant? Over the Pentagon’s collective dead body, of course.

What Big Oil in the US – and also Israel – sees, most of all, is the mirage of a Western-friendly major oil exporter in the long run. That’s why Balkanization sounds so juicy. This has nothing to do with the welfare of the historically wronged Kurdish people. It’s hardcore business. And yet another Divide and Rule power play. Expect plenty of hardcore moves ahead.

Flashback!

Pt.2- Kurd/ ISIS Symbiosis- The impending destruction of Turkey

Double Cross -to betray or swindle, esp. by an action contrary to an agreed upon course.

I suspect Turkey is in the process of being double crossed- And, I believe Erdogan is aware of this.
We have seen this type of double cross on more then one occasion. Libya had attempted to cooperate with the US only to be betrayed and Gaddafi brutally killed. Syria had also attempted to appease the US, again, only to find itself caught in the crosshairs of the NATO global tyranny nexus dominated by US/Israeli/UK interests.

Turkey is being prepped for that same treatment. It's been a plan in the making for at least 12 plus years, but, likely much longer. So let's step back in time.............

 It's been 12 years since Paul Wolfowitz (NEOCON- Dual National) went to Turkey looking to form an earlier coalition of the killing.  Yes, that is the Paul Wolfowitz author of the notorious Wolfowitz doctrine. A doctrine we can see very much at play presently. 1992 Wolfowitz US strategy for a One Superpower World

Wolfowitz's visit to Turkey

 So influential, or threatening, was his visit, it altered the course of the Turkish election!
One clue (to the invasion of Iraq) is that Turkey’s crumbling government coalition partners ­ Ecevit, and Deputy Prime Ministers Devlet Bahcheli and Mesut Yilmaz ­ decided to hold early elections by November.
Their meeting followed the Ecevit-Wolfowitz meeting that had taken place only an hour earlier.
Ecevit had no intention of holding elections at that date and his rejection of which had been announced once again only a few hours before his meeting with Wolfowitz and Yilmaz.
 Just one hour after the Wolfowitz meeting early elections are to be held. Influence? Threats?

The conditions for Turkey's involvement in the immoral destruction of Iraq
The Turkish position toward the United States was listed under four main headings to Wolfowitz:
First, meet our economic losses from such an operation; second, any new Iraqi regime should be accepted by the Iraqi people; third, Turkey opposes any independent Kurdish entity in northern Iraq; fourth, the rights of Turcomans should be guaranteed, and Kirkuk and Mosul cannot be left to the hands of the Kurds.
Wolfowitz had earlier predicted Turkish officials to make these demands, clearly disclosing the aim of his visit to Turkey and trying to demonstrate to the Turks the incentives of removing Saddam regime in Baghdad.
“During my meetings with Turkish officials, I look forward to hearing what they have to say concerning the future of Iraq. We value Turkey’s views highly, and my colleagues in Washington will be interested in what I have to report,” he said.
“Turkey has large and legitimate interests in Iraq, and it has suffered economically from Iraq’s international isolation since the Gulf War.
“Turkey is interested in the fate of Iraq’s Turkoman minority which, like the rest of the Iraqi population, has suffered under tyrannical rule.
“And Turkey wants assurances that events in Iraq won’t have a negative impact on its own unity.
 
If we look at the situation in Iraq present day, we see Paul Wolfowitz is as big a liar as he is a war criminal.  He reassured the Turkish leadership on all their concerns. He claimed the Kurd brand of Sunni Muslim understood this also
“A separate Kurdish state in the north would be destabilizing to Turkey and unacceptable to the United States. Fortunately, the Kurds of north Iraq increasingly seem to understand this fact and understand the importance of thinking themselves as Iraqis who will participate fully in the political life of a future democratic Iraq.
Wolfowitz and the US/Israel/UK Zionists knew full well a Kurdish state would be destabilizing for Turkey. We see today that Kirkuk  (allegedly taken as troops fled ISIS, so taken from ISIS)
 and Mosul (taken from ISIS) are in the hands of the Kurd brand Sunni Muslim. Kirkuk and Mosul "won" from the alleged omnipotent ISIS brand Sunni Muslim. As was Sinjar. As is Kobane/i
As mentioned yesterday, it's a pattern!

Kurdistan, like Israel and Kosovo, is being created for purely political, geopolitical and resource advantages. In Iraq an independent Kurdish state is present in all but official recognition.
Yes, Turkey has assisted the Kurds in nothern Iraq. Worked with them. Transports their oil. Has been a good neighbour etc., Likely because Turkey is keeping it's enemies closer.

Keep your friends close but your enemies closer


But there is a world of difference for Turkey between the Kurds in Iraq and an entire, internationally recognized, nation of Kurdistan. Suddenly the Turkish dream of being a power player in the Middle East is just wishful thinking. Usurped by a Greater Israel and  it's more favoured Sunni Muslims in Kurdistan.

Mr Meir writes:

President Erdogan has recently come under intense criticism for his unwillingness to come to the aid of the beleaguered Syrian Kurds in the city of Kobani just across the Turkish border. Sadly, Erdogan’s behavior is not surprising as he has always pursued policies consistent with the image of himself as a great leader and his country as a regional hegemon and a global power.

Yes, Erdogan has pursued policies more consistent with a regional hegemon and big player on the global stage. Because he was allowed to do so by others of greater global influence then himself. He believed he was a team player..... But, not anymore.

Since coming to power in 2002, however, his achievements have been eclipsed by three themes which have dominated his political career: a) his distorted account of the Ottoman Empire and his vision of Turkey’s future “greatness’, b) his religious fervor and support of Islamists, and c) his insatiable hunger for power domestically, regionally, and globally.
Erdogan never missed an opportunity to show off how much the ‘new’ Turkish Republic, as the successor of the Ottoman Empire, has achieved and how its importance has grown because of its geostrategic location, economic development, status as an energy hub, and unrivaled military prowess in the region.
 Erdogan’s domestic policy has diminished Turkey’s prospect of becoming a member of the EU because many in the EU do not want to integrate an Islamic state with a large population, which would give it a leading role in a “Christian club.”
That statement "an Islamic state with a large population into the "Christian club" is very suggestive of an ulterior agenda. Very telling, indeed. Coming from one of the followers of Judaism. A cheerleader for Israel. The one nation that benefits, always, by fomenting the division between Christians and Muslims.

The EU has raised concerns about the Turkish government’s interference with the judiciary, the restrictions it has imposed on the press, and the “excessive use of force [which] continues to be a matter of concern.”
That's a load of bullbiscuits from the EU. Concerned with justice and a free press? I laugh.
Concerned about excessive force? Again, I laugh.
Window dressing. Mere window dressing.

Erdogan’s follies have severely strained Turkey’s relations with the United States, going back to the Iraq war in 2003.- Read above regarding the Kurd brand Sunni Muslim
 Presently, there is intense discussion in the Obama administration about Turkey’s worthiness as an ally, its importance as a NATO member, and the extent to which the US should cooperate strategically and share intelligence with Turkey.
 The Obama administration doesn't need Turkey as an ally, or important NATO member. As I suggested to my readers last week

Kurdistan. NATO’s new Southern Flank

In the post from yesterday, that I hope you read, it was made abundantly clear that the US has been sharing intelligence with their Kurdish terror group the PKK in the north of Syria & Iraq. The Kurds are so tight with Israel, why the hell does the US/Israel/UK/ NATO alliance need Turkey as it's Southern flank, it strategic partner or it's energy hub? It doesn't.

Many suspect that he in fact supports the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which could explain why he refused to join the American coalition against ISIS, albeit under the pretense that the PKK and the Syrian Kurds are one and the same.
Many suspect that Erdogan supports ISIS? But does he? 
I mean, yes, support of ISIS could explain why he refused to join the coalition against ISIS? 
But, I don't think it does.  With all the new information I have come across lately it seems vastly more plausible that Erdogan would not join the fight against ISIS because he knows, as I have written, that the fight against ISIS is a fight to create Kurdistan. And that ISIS is a pretext created by the West specifically for that reason. In other words Turkey is not going to participate in it's own downfall.

Kurd/ ISIS Symbiosis- The impending destruction of Turkey.


Sadly, Erdogan does not understand that times have changed. He squandered a historic opportunity to make Turkey a model of Islamic democracy with impressive economic and political acheivments.
Turkey has the potential of becoming a significant global power, but to realize that, Erdogan must change course or leave.
Or be overthrown? 
 "The siege of Kobani is far from being just an ordinary siege," Ă–calan said in a message relayed by supporters from his prison on the island of Imrali. "It does not only target the democratic gains of the Kurdish people, but would lead Turkey to a new era of coups"
 In January of this year I put up a post titled- Turkey, IHH, Terror and Tables being Turned
It appears the suspicions I had almost a year ago were correct. Quoting from the end of that post
Now let's finish this twisted tale up!
The most recent raid on the IHH offices? The removal of documents and computers. It would seem to me that we are looking at house cleaning and/ or evidence planting.
Certain incriminating info will be removed and other incriminating info will be left behind or planted, who knows?
If Erdogan is being turned on? And that does appear to be the case. Information will remain that can enable  those under the sway of the preacher in self exile to build a doozy of a corruption, or worse, case against PM Erdogan.

A last word/thought,  I had, from a previous post concerning Erdogan and Turkey.
I am going to use it yet again. Still seems fitting.
"And just think for a moment about all those bought and paid for killers sitting right at Turkey's border. It does not seem that  Erdogan saw this one coming"
Perhaps a little too late Erdogan came to understand the times have changed. Perhaps he still believes he can turn the tide on Turkey's destabilization? It seems, for Turkey, the die is cast.
None of this will change a thing for Syria.
