It's not really politically correct but a recent piece notes that Gollum in Ankara, the Turkish wannabe Sultan of a neo Ottoman Empire - aka President Erdogan - and the whole regime generally has gone ballistic over the "failure" of the recent UNSC agreement on Syria not to include plans of when, where, and how to oust elected President Assad.

The reference is "Turkish PM Ahmet Davutoglu was out with a series of declarations that seem to suggest Turkey is going full-belligerent-retard as Erdogan scrambles to preserve the “Assad must go” narrative on the way to securing whatever Ankara’s interests are in both Iraq and Syria. "

Noteworthy here is that Turkey recently sent tanks and troops into Iraq after shooting down the Russian aircraft and obstinately insists that Iraq "invited" them to do so ... even though the Iraqi representatives reject such spurious claims.

Apologies to those with mental disabilities. There really is something block-headed about this regime. Must be an important NATO ally.

Secret 'Official Docs' Could Allegedly Bring Erdogan's Rule to 'Abrupt End'

"...It is widely known that Turkey is encouraging not stopping the flow of migrants to Europe so that they can be used as a political weapon whenever suitable. This demonstrates that, having failed to get into the EU by fair, diplomatic means, Erdogan is happy to revert to foul ones. It is this which forms the substance of the documents the Turkish paliament, and his [Erdogan's] colleagues, might now release..."

Turkish Bar Association Sues National Intel Agency & Police Over ISIS Slave Trade  (and vid)

"The head of a regional Turkish legal association has filed a criminal complaint against the Turkish authorities after a German documentary alleged that Islamic State (IS) are carrying out a slave trade of women on Turkish soil.

Bektas Sarkli, the head of Gaziantep Bar Association, has brought the suit against the Turkish law enforcement and intelligence agencies following allegations that Yazidi women and children were being trafficked.

"We decided to file a complaint after the allegations were made on German ARD TV. They alleged that the Yazidi people were traded by ISIS in a slave market here in Gaziantep. The prosecution must investigate this,' Sarkli said."

Erdogan Responsible For Crisis in Turkey: Chomsky

http://presstv.com/Detail/2016/01/14/445790/Erdogan-Turkey-Chomsky/

"Prominent US scholar Noam Chomsky has accused the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan of having double standards on terrorism after Erdogan accused him of ignorance and sympathy with terrorists.

'Turkey blamed ISIL [for the attack on Istanbul] which Erdogan has been aiding in many ways, while also supporting al Nusra Front, which is hardly different. He then launched a tirade against those who condemn his crimes against Kurds - who happen to be the main ground force opposing ISIL in both Syria and Iraq. Is there any need for further comment?,'  the scholar argued.

In an open letter last month, Chomsky and hundreds of other scholars condemned Erdogan's clampdown on the Kurdish opposition, holding him responsible for the current 'crisis' in the country."

Hard one to figure NDPP, but it's almost certain that when the apartheid state makes a noise then they have already prearranged it with the US. We're been hoping for a long time that the US would finally come to understand that their support of 'it' would bring hurt to the US that would become too much for what it's worth to have a ME proxy that causes trouble strictly for their evil expansionist agenda.

I'm not optimistic. No US politician is going to impress on the people that the reason for 9/11 was revenge and in large part for the US support of the Zionist agenda.

RGENT: Turkey to CLOSE THE BOSPORUS STRAIT to all Russian Military Vessels!

Post by Newsroom

 

- Feb 21, 2016

      Turkey to CLOSE THE BOSPORUS STRAIT to all Russian Military Vessels!

     

    Turkey intends to CLOSE the Bosporus Strait to Russian Naval Vessels, sealing them in (or out) of the Black Sea, claiming Russia is aiding "Kurd Terrorists" in Syria.

    "Russia strengthens and supports PYD organization of Syria, (Kurds) which Ankara considers to be terrorists, and also responsible for the recent car Bombing in the Turkish Captial which left 28 dead.

     According to the pro-government Turkish daily "Sabah" Turkey complained that Russia, with its warships passing through the Straits toward the eastern Mediterranean, are carrying weapons and ammunition to supply the Kurds for "terrorist operations."

    For this reason, Turkey says, it has the right to close the strait to the Russian Fleet.

    In the past, Russia has publicly and specifically stated "Closing the Turkey Strait would automatically mean war."

    Turkey has every right to conduct operations in Syria and the places where terror organizations are nested with regards to the struggle against the threats that Turkey faces,” Erdogan was cited as saying by the Hurriyet newspaper.

    Top Secret/SC: Raw Intel Report on Turkey, Syria and Iraq By GPD on February 24, 2016

    ...a must read!

    iyraste1313

    Here is what we are seeing and why John Kerry “has some splain’in to do.”...from veteranstoday.com

    • The battles along the Aleppo road clearly demonstrate that ISIS has cut military supplies to forces fighting inside Aleppo city in partnership with Free Syria Army units as a coordinated and highly sophisticated military operation.  The idea of giving the FSA a pass during the upcoming cease fire is absurd.  They were long ago taken over by ISIS and al Nusra, their command structure ceased to exist and returned to their “day jobs” with Turkish intelligence and the “rank and file” of the FSA are now all mercenaries.
    • The US is totally aware of this and fully complicit.  Saudi fighters arrived at Incirlik air base in Turkey, a base they share with the US.  Last week Saudi Arabia brought up to 5 tactical nuclear weapons into Incirlik to use against Russian and Syrian forces as part of what John Kerry has coined “Plan B.”
    • Now we have information that Turkish intelligence, yesterday morning, delivered one tactical nuclear weapon to the city of Aleppo, where it is being used to blackmail the Syrian government into stopping military operations inside the city and leaving a phony moderate “American backed” and again as Ian says, “moderate head chopper” force in place in Aleppo.
    • Turkey is actively involved in military operations in Latakia, having moved artillery up to the border in support of Turkish military dressed as “moderate head choppers” who have retaken villages as seen in the Southfront video.
    • It has become increasingly clear that the United States is providing intelligence and combined warfare assistance to ISIS in both Syria and Iraq with American commanders “on the ground” in al Raqqah, Deir Ezzor, Mosul and until recently Ramadi and Fallujah, where they had to be extracted by helicopter in broad daylight recently.
    • Key to all of this are events in Erbil, the capitol of the KRG in Iraq.  There plans are being made to pull away from the Baghdad government with military support from the Turkish government which has already sent troops into Iraq despite protests by the government there.  It is the intent of Turkey to empower a “Barzani Caliphate” from the border of Iran, even into Turkey and taking a wide swath of Northern Syria.  Barzani has signed a secret agreement with Turkey to allow them to purge “communists” from this region, which in actuality would represent an ethnic cleansing of Kurds much as Turkey had done with Armenians in 1915.  The deal is this; Barzani will finally get his Kurdish nation except that Turkey has the right to march in, jail or kill who they want when they want while Barzani secretly or not so secretly works with his Israeli friends who hope Mr. Erdogan will fall down a flight of stairs in a “not so accidental” accident.  What they have planned for the Saudis is well along the way, a move that will soon turn Saudi Arabia into a full and total Israeli client state, something Israel may well need if ISIS, now totally out of control, ever conquers Syria.

    ...make no mistake, the power of international boycott and sanctions!

     

    from journal-net.org

    And that’s exactly where the effect of Russian sanctions are kicking in, which were imposed by Moscow against Ankara in response to the downing of a Russian warplane over Syria. With the vacation season approaching rapidly, Turkey will find itself deprived of 3.5 million Russian tourists that had been visiting Turkey every year. The panic in the tourism sector of the Turkish economy has been on the rise recently with countless hotels in Antalya, Bodrum, Marmaris and Fethiye being put up for sale. After all, Russians are not the only ones who won’t go to Turkey this year. Europeans too, are going to be repelled by the massive exodus of migrants from Syria and Iraq that are being shipped to the EU via the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. It’s just too dangerous to go to Turkey these days. And the fact that ISIS has been planning new terrorist attacks in Turkey doesn’t make it any more attractive for foreign tourists either.

    The agricultural industry is also in a diminished state, since it is based on feeding tourists and exporting its products to Russia, and none of these options are available currently. If the political and socioeconomic crisis in Turkey becomes worse, it won’t take long for Erdogan to be impeached. But he will be most certainly replaced by his faithful ally – Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu or his old contender – the former President Abdullah Gül who is being heavily supported by the US.
