Turkish President: We are determined to fight all who threaten us along the Syrian border

35
Yesterday, Turkish President Regel Erdogan made a loud statement addressed to Washington, stressing that Ankara will do everything necessary, including military operations, to prevent the establishment of autonomy by the Syrian Kurds in the city of Tel Abyad, as it threatens the country's national security.




According to the expert of the Association of Independent Military Political Scientists Alexander Perendzhiev, behind the harsh words of the Turkish leader there may be reasons that are not completely obvious at first glance, and it is possible that armed clashes with the Kurds may actually occur.

“In this case, Turkey may find itself in international isolation and will go so far as to the EU that it definitely will not fall. It can be assumed that Erdogan makes this statement with the Kurds in order to start bargaining with Europe, since Europe has offered some money to Turkey for curbing migration flows. It seems to me that this is simply a moment of pressure, primarily on its NATO allies, and through them on the EU, ”he said in an interview with a journalist. Utro.ru.

Turkish this week aviation inflicted two blows on the Kurdish people's self-defense units, which organized a crossing west of the Euphrates River. Earlier, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu stated that the Kurds would be attacked in the event of such actions.

“It was a warning. Remember, if you try to do it in another place, Turkey will not need permission from anyone. We will do what is necessary. We are determined to fight all who threaten us along the Syrian border, inside or outside. The problem is that the West does not even recognize the Kurdish Democratic Union as a terrorist organization. This is nonsense. In essence, the principle will be applied: “My terrorist is a good one, yours is a bad one,” said Edrogan.

Meanwhile, according to Perendzhiev, the position of Ankara is rather contradictory, and Erdogan has not yet decided on a strategy on the territory of Syria.

“The leadership of Turkey is starting to lose some realities of reality. In fact, the Turks are taking steps that could damage their roles in the Syrian issue. First, Erdogan spoke harshly against Russia, now - against the Western allies. Ankara considers terrorists not only ISIS, but also Kurds, and this, of course, contradicts the vector of development of international politics and political situation. Turkey’s actions are actually contributing to the further escalation of the conflict. The Americans, the Germans and Russia somehow helped them on the Kurds. Therefore, it is absolutely certain that in the event of the start of a serious war between Turkey and the Kurds, Ankara will spoil relations with everyone at once. But they have nowhere to go - position is position, ”he noted.

            There are already with domestic politics at the moment just an ass. Before civilian stabbing, one step and the question of the Straits and Constantinople will become acute before Russia. And this is for a moment the country of NATO, as well as the neighboring Bulgaria and Greece, which will be drawn into the conflict on autopilot, and then Cyprus will suck it with a vacuum cleaner. Then the fun will not be for children. And we have both brand new submarines under repair! sad И вместо 6ти фрегатов только ДВА на испытаниях , а третий у стенки ,а еще три вообще.... ,,Мистрали" на радость урякалкам не достались...request

              Nothing! If necessary, ours will sail on boats in whatever way they can - they will help, what’s needed - they will correct, in general they will provide fraternal assistance to the Turkish people! They did not render fraternal help to one neighboring people in time in the form of the Pskov airborne division directly on the Maidan, now everyone is suffering, and they and we ...

            Yes, just Turkey has a full P with foreign policy (choose the word fox or order to your liking), because Turkey again imagines itself to be the Ottoman Empire and the prerequisites for this have developed (from Benghazi in Libya to Baghdad, the ancient Mesopotamia and the Carthaginian kingdom are aflame again ), which means that you can again expand your borders to the borders of the Ottoman world, pull a Turkish owl on the Middle East globe ... And now the desperate guy Erdogan decided to try on the imperial crown and create Edina Ottomania on the site of the destroyed states ...

            And if we add to this the fact that Turkey is a full member of NATO, then, fighting the Kurds, who are supported by the United States and send their military instructors to them, it turns out that one NATO member will bomb another member of this gang. It's funny.

      По словам его окружения, после начала операции ВКС России в Сирии у Эрдогана был приступ ярости, его буквально умоляли не звонить Путину, т.к. Эрдоган был готов объявить России войну. Теперь наверно не стоит удивляться наездам турок на "турецкий поток". Если президент псих, то вся страна заложник.

        The Turkish president has the same rights as the president of Germany. This is, in many ways, an honorary position. But to be the ruling party and nominate the prime minister is a completely different calico. By the way, Turkey lost forty percent this year on tourism

      In general, there are 45 million Kurds scattered across a vast territory. And once upon a time I read a Soviet book, so there the old Kurd dreamed of Kurdish statehood, only now I understand what it is about. And, in fact, if the Jews got their piece of land, then why shouldn’t the Kurds be? Well, there cannot be out of 45 million as many villains unworthy to live in OWN state. Honestly, this topic was hushed up, enlighten those who know, if there are any. Vika, she's unreliable.

      With Kurds ALREADY GOING, moreover, on Turkish territory, quite a few military operations, rather than police operations, are being conducted. It’s even worse here - INSIDE THE TURKISH society, the stress is not childish, if Erdogan does not get a majority, then he can really save the skin of his whole family, literally and figuratively, to go to all the hardships and civil war - SMERD.

    (C) Therefore, it is absolutely certain that if a serious war between Turkey and the Kurds begins, Ankara will very much ruin relations with all at once. But they have nowhere to go - a position is a position, ”he said. (C)

    Turkey’s worthless position: today he is in the same position that Serbia was in recognizing Kosovo’s independence. It could easily end up with a paper coming from Vienna to the UN about the deployment of peacekeepers in the Kurdish zone and strongly suspect that it could be Russians - it would help a lot to the Syrians.
    Moreover, the same situation could be repeated in Iraq, and then the PKK would be happy to get into this process, and this is about 10% of Turkish lands

    Эрдоган рассматривает многие государства Ближнего Востока, как "кресы турецкие". Однако предполагавшийся раздел Сирии "в пользу" Турции теперь вряд ли состоится. Зато запущен процесс создания курдского государства. Если Асад возьмёт на себя некоторые обязательства по курдскому вопросу, то Анкаре деваться будет некуда: или участвовать в политическом процессе, или воевать. Москва, в целом, всегда поддерживала курдов. Как я понимаю, США также готовы поддержать курдов. Остаётся Иран.

    And why is everyone so laid down on the creation of Kurdistan? Here we need it? We need the Americans not to supply the Kurds with weapons, because in this case the Kurds will have no choice but to seek an alliance with Assad, which is under us. And if the United States throws weapons to the Kurds (and the Turks do this), the Kurds from the north will split ISIS, Assad from the south, then Assad will have to deal with the Kurds. In short, the creation of Kurdistan is possible only with chaos and the complete collapse of the region. We are not there for that.

    So here the position of Turkey is right in our hands.
