Head of Turkish Defense Ministry: Incirlik is a Turkish, not a NATO airbase

Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Yshik once again raised the issue of the expediency of finding American coalition planes at the Incirlik airbase. According to the Turkish minister, Incirlik is not a NATO airbase.


Head of Turkish Defense Ministry: Incirlik is a Turkish, not a NATO airbase


Ishik:
Incirlik is a Turkish airbase, which Turkey has allowed to use a foreign military in recent years. We are continuing negotiations with representatives of the coalition on the basis of, and if these negotiations fail, then our country will consider all options.


This remark attracts attention, if only because Turkey is a member of NATO.

In addition, the Minister of Defense of Turkey noted that the number of terrorist acts in the country has increased dramatically after wars in the region, including wars in the Gulf countries.

Ishik:
And we are well aware that there are one or even several centers of power, located outside the region, which have a great influence on terrorist organizations operating in the Middle East. These centers obviously set themselves the task of minimizing Ankara’s participation in the processes taking place in the region.


Yshik stressed that such a task has recently been carried out through the opening of new and new centers for the preacher Gulen, located in the USA, in Turkey. Recall that the official Ankara is Fethullah Gulen, who is considered one of the main ideologues of the coup attempt in the summer of last year. The US has not yet issued Gulen to Ankara, trying to ignore the demands of the Turkish authorities.

          And against the backdrop of Ankara’s statement about the Incirlik base and the withdrawal of our naval group from the coast of Syria, the Israeli regime is beginning to escalate the situation in the region. Apparently, it’s really bad for the terrorists if even the Tel Aviv regime joined the company to protect them and went on a verbal confrontation with Russia.

          Israeli satellite detects Iskander missiles in Syria
          The images taken by the ImageSat satellite of Israel showed that the Iskander ballistic missile base was created in Syria.

          Missiles are deployed on the basis of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Latakia. Images taken by Eros B.

          According to ImageSat, the images show two tractors with Iskander missiles shot at a base in Latakia.

          Syria received billions and modern weapons from Russia and Iran
          Tehran and Moscow provided significant financial and economic assistance to Damascus, as well as supplying modern weapons to Syria that could change the balance of power in the Middle East.

          According to the source, Iran opened a $ 4,5 billion credit line for Syria, and Russia provided a $ 1 billion credit in addition to delivering $ 500 million worth of fuel and $ 400 million worth of flour. The article emphasizes that Moscow continues to provide assistance to Damascus, despite the crisis.

          The publication claims that a new batch of modern weapons has been delivered to Syria from Russia and other countries that will "influence the course of the war" and "hinder Israel or another enemy."

              Russia is pushing Hezbollah and Syria to war with Israel
              The American edition WorldNetDaily (WND) published an article by Aaron Klein (chief of the Jerusalem bureau of the WND) entitled "Official: Russia has prepared a plan to start a war against Israel," which, with reference to an anonymous French government official, claims that the Kremlin has developed a "backup plan" for provoking Hezbollah and, possibly, the regime of Bashar al-Assad into a direct military conflict with Israel.
              There is evidence that in recent weeks "Iskander" operational-tactical missile systems and surface-to-air missiles have been successfully transported to Hezbollah. It is emphasized that these cargoes were delivered to Lebanon, despite Israeli airstrikes against targets in Syria in early December.

              A French official, quoted by WND, believes Russia has not yet made a final decision on pushing Hezbollah to war with Israel, but views such an armed conflict in the Middle East as "a card to be played in confrontation with the West."
              http://newsru.co.il/press/21dec2014/wnd_107.html

              And now, in Israel, these terrible fantasies are again beginning to be recalled, and Iskander pulled out today's images with the OTR discovered precisely to escalate the situation, because their presence in Syria has long been known.

            Greetings Pasha! Didn't answer in time, went away. It's simple: Turkey has no "options". As there were NATO planes in Incirlik, so it will be. Erdogan will not go to confrontation with NATO. All these warnings are throwing dust in the eyes of both the allies and Russia.

          What is there to announce? The coalition has more than 60 countries, of which 28 are NATO member countries, including Turkey itself.
          If the list is of the proposed options, then the most correct for Turkey would be to secede from NATO and outside the bloc status. In terms of size and armament, the Turkish army is the second in NATO. In the region, she has no enemy superior in capabilities to her army and posing a real threat to her, with the exception of Russia, which, in principle, is not going to attack Turkey. But participation in NATO adventures can quite itself lead Turkey to a serious war. Yes, in principle, it has already. All these explosions and shootings are nothing more than retribution for "friendship" with the Anglo-Saxons. The less their presence in Turkey is, the calmer its citizens will be. So, let them drive away the "guests" with Injerlik with a tattered rag and close all sorts of NGOs financed from abroad.

            Since 1974, no one has left NATO (apart from France in 1949) and it is unlikely that Turkey will be allowed to leave this organization. Even for friendship with Russia, the West arranged a small armageddon for Turkey (attempted coup d'etat, terrorist attacks). And if Turkey leaves NATO, Erdogan will not live long, not to mention the fact that not only terrorist attacks will intensify, but the US Kurds will be helped in full.

              This is all so of course, but as an option, an exit from NATO would be most correct. I agree with you - they won’t.
              NATO is now facing serious problems, as and one of the candidates for the presidency of France, Marine Le Pen, has intentions to withdraw the country from the bloc if it wins. If at least one of the countries listed above fulfills this scenario, the bloc will fall like a house of cards, and the United States will no longer be able to kill all the presidents of the "deserters". Although, of course, we cannot exclude the fact that in this situation, the mattresses will activate sleeping Islamic radical groups throughout Europe, which will also be another bomb.

                The intentions of Marine Le Pen, if elected president, may change. She is now, without answering anything, trying to pretend to be De Gaulle in a skirt. Yes, and Fignon is unlikely to give way to her president.
                But on the other hand, I agree: if France decided to withdraw from NATO, then Turkey would be easier. As the saying goes: two or three, not one.

      Bidding went serious. I read it today.
      Get out, American dog!
      Just look at how Turkish representatives tactfully send their American colleagues to hell. What a game! This is agility, this is talent. One can only admire the competent approach of official Ankara, which, without speaking openly, has already marked the road from its country to the United States. Everyone remembers the scandal that broke out between the two countries not so long ago. First, America poured sloppy insults from Turkey, convincing everyone around that the head of state, Recep Erdogan, was directly connected with the IG terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation by the Supreme Court, and then the Turkish side accused the United States of inaction in the war against the terrorist threat in the Middle East and Turkish territory in particular. Well, of course, Erdogan said that his country has all the necessary evidence that the United States is working closely with terrorists. In general, the colleagues once struggled to roll a barrel at each other, trying, perhaps, to erase from world memory each has his own personal “shoals” in front of the public. One way or another, the “cooperation” between Turkey and the USA continued. Officially, of course. We are talking about the Incirlik airbase, which, according to the Agreement on Military and Economic Cooperation between the two countries, is used by the US Air Force and Turkey, respectively. Incirlik is the base of aircraft of those countries that are members of the international anti-terrorism coalition led by the United States (they, by the way, Erdogan also accused of insufficient support for Turkey and inaction during the global operation to destroy terrorism as such and IS in particular, of course). “Recently, the international coalition does not support the efforts of Turkey in the fight against terrorists. If this coalition was created with the aim of combating Daesh (the Arabic abbreviation of the Islamic State, banned in the Russian Federation and a number of other countries - ed.), And Turkey, for its part, has created the conditions for an active counteraction to terrorists, then why Ankara does not receive appropriate support? It seems that Ankara is not quite satisfied with all this, though she doesn’t specifically talk about it. Everything is slightly veiled, you know, such a hint with a barely noticeable oriental note. Subtle, very subtle, Turkey ... So, the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, after a meeting with UN Secretary General Antoni Guterres in New York, stated the following:
      1. The issue of closing the airbase in Turkey is not worth it (earlier in the media there was news that such an option was considered).
      2. Countries that use Incirlik under the pretext of combating IS and actual inaction should leave this base. That is, Turkey has increasingly begun to wonder, “why use the base and not help Turkey at the same time?” As you noted, neither whom specifically (the names Ankara does not name) the Turkish side does not indicate with a finger, is it all like that, or something savvy. Well, America will guess about whom on the "fingers" trying to explain Turkey to the public? Or not, how soon will the United States take at least some action to make amends to Erdogan and prove the urgent need for a presence in the province of Adana (this is where the air base is located)? The Middle East, without it, is leaking like sand through American fingers ... And you know, you didn’t have to wait long - the White House immediately caught on and began, as they put it, to “warn” Turkey from hasty decisions about the US presence in Incirlik. “I think that their threats to deny us access to Incirlik base would undermine their own interests, said White House spokeswoman Josh Ernest, “because part of the assistance we could provide would come from Incirlik base.” Could ... you are! It was necessary to think earlier. Probably, even when the idea of ​​"contacting" with Ankara appeared. Perhaps, even then, the United States made its most important Middle Eastern mistake, and then, as they say, “off and on”.

      Where did you get that the Turks offered friendship in 1915. They entered into an alliance with the Germans, so that with their help they would return the previously lost territories. But in 1921 there was a friendship in a hickey with Soviet Russia.
