Military Review

Analytical program "However" with Mikhail Leontiev 18 June 2013

33



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!"
"Defeated Janissaries!"

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.

      Turkish Foreign Ministry called the British ambassador "on the carpet"
      Yesterday, a British charge d'affaires was summoned to the Turkish Foreign Ministry to clarify reports of wiretapping at the G20 summit in the UK.
      In particular, the Turkish side expresses concern over the information on the surveillance of the British special services by the Turkish Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek and expects to receive official and comprehensive explanations on this issue, the reports said. Earlier Monday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said that such actions by the authorities of the union state are absolutely unacceptable, reports "Interfax".

    Who should be supported in Turkey - moderate secular Muslims, in whose ranks LGBT activists are marching, or the Erdogan regime, which considers the Islamists to be at war in Syria that eat the insides of the murdered one - rebels for free Syria?

    Reason for posing the question 0:23 sec.

      Trailer, do not forget, Turkey is a continuous resort, and wherever there is a resort, there is also a creative class. I live in the resort Berdyansk, here in 2004 Yushchenko was supported by 22%. This is despite the fact that 95% of Russian-speaking Ukrainians and Russians are here. Proletarian Mariupol is 65 km away. There, only 4% of Yushchenko supported.

      Comments are redundant. The more pseudo professions and entrepreneurs of various recreational and recreational industries, the greater the likelihood of Maidan and Bolotnaya.

      It is strange that you had such an opinion - you know Leontyev and his position - this is his consistent opinion, and he will never say differently, order-do not order, the wrong person .... Personally, he impresses me with his position, and I agree with him very often.

    I’m not sure that in this case, Leontiev is right. The confrontation lasts too long. And then, the support of the Syrian gangs by the Turks must have come around. That's it ... it began. The Americans are silent simply because they have politically embarked on. In Syria in the same scenario, we support the opposition, but what about the friend Erdogan? Doesn’t it end there at the direction of anyone ... On the contrary, the protests will grow, covering an entire large territory ...

        Roland DUMA, ex-Foreign Minister of France

        In an interview with French television channel LCP former head of the Foreign Ministry, Roland Dumas said:

        “I intend to tell you something. Two years before the outbreak of violence in Syria, I was in England, on completely different matters. There I met with senior British officials, and they confirmed to me that they were up to something in Syria. Everything was planned in England, and not in America, and Britain was organizing the rebellion in Syria. They even asked me - although I have long been no foreign minister - do I want to participate in this? Naturally, I refused, saying that I am a Frenchman, and such matters do not interest me. ”

        Dumas did not stop there and read the channel audience a short lecture about the real causes of the war, which claimed at the moment the lives of tens of thousands of people.

        “This operation was conceived long ago. She was prepared, predetermined her course and planned. Speaking about this region, it is important to understand that the Syrian regime is openly anti-Israeli. Accordingly, everything that happens in this region - and I heard it from the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel. He told me: "We will try to get along with our neighbors, but those who disagree with us will be destroyed." This is such a kind of politics, such a view of history, and why not. But you must be aware of this. ”

        Dumas is a retired French Foreign Minister, and he is required to show prudence by divulging secrets that could harm his country's foreign policy. That's why he made a slip of the tongue - "I am a Frenchman, and such matters do not interest me." He could not reveal the role of France in the British plan, since he could become a victim of criminal prosecution for revealing state secrets.

      - So in Turkey - Leontiev clearly voiced - such support!

And most importantly, these are the military, the Turkish army, the former guarantor of the secular state, having lost all its political privileges, beheaded and humiliated by Erdogan."
      And who supported in Russia? Cowardly "walking in the deserts"? As there was a threat that the SK could get by strings and to them, so everyone stopped supporting and calmed down, went on walking along the deserts. Here's a good tip - walk on your own empty walk as you walk, do not twitch once again. Otherwise ... "Expropriation of the expropriated." Unpleasantly, passed already, etc. BUT!!!! Judging by the breakthrough in the 30s of the USSR in scientific and technological development - USEFUL ACTION. Therefore, I hope they do not spend long time in the deserts. The fact that the "swamp" is their work is no one doubts. AND THIS NOBODY IS GOING TO FORGET !!!!!

    One side -
    Erdogan, with his pan-Islamic ambitions and his resolved, fake conflict with Israel, is certainly an American project. And this project is failing, including in Syria. The protesting Turkish opposition, also quite pro-Western, pro-American, not to mention the Turkish army. That is, it is a regulated conflict. And therefore, by the way, we don’t hear any reactions from the regulator ...
    .....
    With another -
    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.
    ....
    Is it not more profitable for the State Department to wedge Turkey (a NATO member) into the Syrian conflict.?.
    Thereby:
    - get an excuse to get in on your own (who said the "last word" that we are absolutely all polymers about .... with Syria.?.);
    - cause fierce seething in Turkey itself. Thus politically Erdogan (in particular) and the development / strengthening of Turkey (in general)? what

    I am so particularly embarrassed by another point- "Actually, these are Turkish" swamps "- to make it easier. Creative class, youth, Europeanized party, left-wing shit ... The significant difference is that behind them is a really powerful old republican elite, political parties, who never won the election, but always received power from the hands of the military. And most importantly, these military, the Turkish army, the former guarantor of a secular state, who lost all their political privileges, beheaded and humiliated by Erdogan. "

    G8 leaders in the final communiqué of the Loch Ern summit called on Damascus and rebels to get rid of al-Qaeda-related factions

    Moscow. June 18th. INTERFAX.RU - Syrian authorities and the opposition fighting against them must expel al-Qaeda militants and groups associated with the international terrorist network from the country. Such a statement is contained in the final communiqué of the GXNUMX summit, which ended on Tuesday in the city of Loch Erne (UK).

    “We urge the Syrian authorities and the opposition at the upcoming Geneva conference to pledge to destroy and expel from Syria all groups and all militants associated with al-Qaida. We should also get rid of any other non-state structures related to terrorism,” document.

    The authors of the communiqué expressed concern about the growing religious component of the conflict and emphasized that Syria should belong to all Syrians, including all minorities and religious groups.

    The document also emphasizes that a transitional government should be formed in Syria, the composition of which should be determined as a result of peace negotiations of all parties to the conflict.

    "We strongly support the early holding of a conference on Syria in Geneva in order to fully implement the Geneva communiqué of June 30, 2012, which provides for a number of steps, starting with the creation by mutual agreement of the parties to the conflict of a transitional governing body with all executive powers," the document says .


    And one Warrior in the field, if the Truth is behind him! Even considering the G8 format as 7 + 1. Apparently, Putin’s arguments were more convincing!

Something had to be said (TV network, however .... schedule, broadcast ...), but apparently Mikhail had nothing to say. So he scribbled mutually exclusive maxims and contradictions.

    I confess that at first I was very happy with the events in Turkey and the opportunity to call Erdogan himself a butcher and murderer, as he did with respect to Assad.
    However, today's morning report from Turkey on “Vesti24” with the main characters of the confrontation of Erdogan - LGBT perverts - made me seriously think: which option is worse for Russia, and for humanity as a whole? Turkey as part of an exploding, sowing bloody terror, the Islamist world? Or Turkey as part of the decaying, infecting with its deadly infection all around the western world?
    And while I do not find the answer.

    However! Leontiev is the “voice of the Kremlin”. Previously, I watched it with interest, while there was an attempt to start introducing State ideology and National development, later it became clear that all good ideas were used for propaganda purposes for the authorities.
    It was very interesting how the “swamps” and Turkish protests were combined with Islamic radicalism and direct coups. With all the antipathy towards the "leaders of the opposition" affected by the police lawlessness and power-having organized crime groups, sincerely sorry. People suffered for other people's interests, show-offs, bonuses and other people's stupidity.
    Let us return to Turkey, as it became clear further, the far-fetched repressions against secular forces in Turkey and support for Islamization, the desire to recreate the Ottoman Empire is clearly expressed and justified.
    Based on the foregoing, the conclusion suggests itself: - "That the Power does not do it, it’s good, because the Power itself does it." AND! this hides the fact that: -Kremlyovskaya organized crime group will do EVERYTHING so that no one can replace it, and will go to EVERYTHING so that it "does not cross the road."

    Erdogan is not loved in Turkey. For almost a hundred years they lived in a secular state and thanks to this, they escaped from Arab poverty and obscurantism into quite respectable states, with decent industry and agriculture, while not having any oil or gas, but only at the expense of the productive labor of citizens. And now they are trying to drive them into a religious state, and even claims to pan-Turkism. It’s the same as declaring a return to old-believing in Russia and claiming all Slavic territories up to the Austro-Hungarian border, including Poland, plus Courland, Chukhonia and the Baltic states.

    Erdogan’s militant rhetoric with respect to Syria has noticeably diminished. All his thoughts are aimed at extinguishing the “Arab summer” bonfire in his own country. Some actions by some of Turkey’s Western NATO allies aimed at fanning the protests of the Turkish opposition are somewhat surprising. It’s too early to talk about the ending and the consequences of this fight between Erdogan and the opposition, but the one who directed this performance is an intelligent and subtle politician.

    At least it is not correct to compare the protest events in Turkey and Russia. The mentality, history, current events and everything else are completely different. The only thing that brings together is Vladimir Vladimirovich’s personal friendship with Tayyip Erdogan and the economic interests of the two countries.

    Turkey is a NATO member, with the second largest army after the United States among the countries members of this organization, and Americans would have been more comfortable with a secular rather than clerical regime in this state. With the re-Islamization of the country, Erdogan went too far - too hasty and large-scale, which many representatives of Turkish society, especially the intelligentsia (and not only liberal), army circles, teachers, students and people with free professions really dislike, By the way, this spring, By the next anniversary of the capture of Constantinople, in his entourage they started talking about the re-reconstruction of the building of St. Sophia into a mosque. After the reforms of Ataturk, it is used as a museum. It goes to extremes. For example, last year, in the suburbs of Ankara, unknown people smeared with green paint a monument to the father of the founder of the Turkish Republic.

    I do not think that Turkey is not up to Syria. Do not small wars lead to the unification of the masses? So Turkey can now provoke a conflict with Syria and introduce restrictions in any rallies in connection with the conduct of hostilities. It is a possible option.
