Everything is clear with Turkey. "Turkish summer" will not. It could not be because it is the "Arab Spring" is exactly the opposite.
In the spring of 2011, secular officer regimes in Egypt, Tunisia, and then in Libya were demolished with the help of an impoverished Arab street, for which political Islam was the only form of protest. It was a rebellion of a desperate majority. Today in Turkey, a secular pro-Western minority is protesting against the regime of Prime Minister Erdogan, carrying out the creeping Islamization of the anticlerical republic created by Ataturk in his time on the ruins of the Ottoman Empire.
In fact, this is the Turkish "marsh" - to make it easier. The creative class, the youth, the Europeanized get-together, the leftist punks ... The significant difference is that behind them is really a powerful old Republican elite, political parties that have never won the elections, but always got power from the hands of the military. And most importantly - these military, the Turkish army, the former guarantor of a secular state, lost all its political privileges, beheaded and humiliated by Erdogan.
The “Ergenekon” case, an organization of conspirators allegedly preparing a coup to overthrow the Erdogan government, dragged on from 2007 of the year. In the case, there were about 400 people - representatives of higher generals, university professors, deputies, leaders of various political organizations, from extreme nationalists to communists, writers, journalists ... The main figures - first of all, generals and officers - were sentenced to periods from 18 to 20 years.
The case of "Ergenekon", which possesses signs of quite a Yezhov's imagination, is directly a Trotsky-Bukharin plot, a mixture of a hedgehog with a snake. At the same time, all these people are really enemies of Erdogan and Erdoganov's Turkey. And this is quite a tool of political cleansing of the same army. By the way, if it were not for this purge, the military would already be sitting on the spot of Erdogan. Today Erdogan is completely confident in himself. He is an extremely tough politician, stubbornly pursuing his goals. And this goal is to become the leader of the Islamic world and make imperial Ottoman revenge.
In the spring of 2010, Turkey provoked a high-profile conflict with Israel over the so-called "Flotillas freedom, heading to blocked Gaza. Earlier, in December 2008, Erdogan broke off the peace talks between Israel and Syria, in which the Turks were mediators. During the "Arab spring" Erdogan, with active US support, promoted the Turkish model as a model for Islamic revolution, and itself as its leader.From the very beginning of the civil conflict in Syria, Turkey has acted as a provocateur, organizer and sponsor of the anti-Syrian Islamist opposition, together with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel.
Erdogan, with his pan-Islamist ambitions and with his resolved, sham conflict with Israel, is undoubtedly an American project. And this project fails, including in Syria. The protesting Turkish opposition, also quite pro-Western, pro-American, not to mention the Turkish army. That is, it is an adjustable conflict. And so, by the way, no reaction from the regulator we do not hear. The State Department is silent, as water in his mouth scored.
"Gray in apples cockroach Janissary favorite!"
The authorities of Erdogan today are not in danger. However, he had serious problems. In any case, he will now not be up to Syria.
