The Western world launders its Turkish allies from thieves oil

The other day, Russia's permanent representative to NATO, Alexander Grushko, said in an interview with the Russia 24 TV channel that such reckless actions by Turkey as deciding to destroy a Russian aircraft could have very serious long-term consequences for the alliance itself. According to the diplomat, NATO would like to distance itself from the incident with the Russian plane, but Atlantic solidarity considerations do not allow them to publicly condemn Turkey.

The Western world launders its Turkish allies from thieves oil

The point here is not only in the incident with the Russian bomber. Shortly before the interview, the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to NATO came up with a new hot topic. The Russian Ministry of Defense at a special briefing on December 2 provided evidence of the involvement of the Turkish President Erdogan and his family members in the illegal oil trade, together with the terrorist group IG (DAISH).

It might have seemed to someone that this is a separate case of business impropriety and promiscuity in the relations of a high-ranking politician. Upon closer examination, a different scheme was obtained: a NATO member state actively cooperates with a terrorist criminal group, to which the alliance declared war on words. This war for many months did not bring any significant results. A simple conclusion suggests itself: NATO is interested in the existence of Islamic terrorists and is trying to use them to their advantage.

Western media did not begin to analyze this very obvious conclusion, but launched another informational attack against Russia. For example, the leading newspapers of the United States, Washington Post and The New York Times, both on a team said that Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov “did not provide any concrete evidence to substantiate the allegations that Erdogan personally participated in the oil trade with IG (DAISH ). The main argument for these publications, as well as for the American radio station Voice of America, were the words of US State Department spokesman Mark Toner: "In any case, we simply do not believe that this is true."

An ordinary ignorance does not explain the shaft of publications in NATO media that reject Russian accusations. Now, the words of General Antonov, that the Turks "do not recognize anything, even if their faces are smeared with thieving oil," have become relevant for biased Western publications. Here are some examples. The Financial Times weekly ignored the intelligence and satellite imagery presented at the briefing, dubbed them "Russian propaganda." In Bloomberg, objective evidence of the Russian Defense Ministry was called "political accusations." The BBC and USA Today perceived the briefing as an "escalation of tension" and a "war of words between Moscow and Ankara." The British Guardian made a paradoxical conclusion: “Turkey may replace the United States for Russia as the rhetorical enemy No. 1”.

It is significant that the journalists of many of these publications love to conduct their own investigations. At this time, all limited to estimates prompted by the US State Department. The notorious Atlantic solidarity led Western politicians and journalists to the denial of obvious facts, which with all their desire not to explain how the Russian "attacks on Turkey."

Indeed, long before the military briefing, assessing Vladimir Putin’s speech in Paris, the German Bild wrote: “The Russian leader has reason to claim that Turkey is buying IG’s“ bloody oil ”.” A similar assessment was made by Roberto Calderoli, Deputy Chairman of the Senate of the Italian Republic. A political analyst, a specialist in the Middle East, Shramin Narvani said: “There is not a fraction of the likelihood that the western allies of Turkey did not know about the oil trade between the IG (DAISH) and Turkey. They have the same satellite and intelligence capabilities as the Russians. ” Now they have nothing to do but to “change the information picture.”

Where does Atlantic solidarity lead?

Among other things, it had the media community and the facts of Erdogan’s family ties with the terrorist group IG (DAISH). Thus, the RT channel with reference to the Turkish media reported that this group secretly cooperates with the third son of Turkish President Bilal Erdogan. He owns oil and logistics companies in Turkey and Lebanon. The BMZ Group Denizcilik ve İnşaat Sanayi Anonim Şirketi owned by Erdogan’s son transports the smuggled oil from Syria and Iraq to the market through the Black Sea ports. Sputnik writes that the family business of the Turkish president is not limited to the resale of hydrocarbons. Erdogan's daughter Syumiyu is suspected of owning a hospital for the military in southeastern Turkey, where IG militants are treated after injuries.

The situation is quite recognizable. At one time, the Turkish journalist Dogu Eroglu found out that the hospital in Gaziantep provided medical assistance to militants of one of the factions, called the Islamic Front. Medicaid to terrorists is organized well. In the territory under control grouping, even Turkish reanimation vehicles are on duty. Wounded militants are urgently taken to Turkish hospitals. The Turkish authorities, through the court, rejected the accusations of Dogu Eroglu, and the journalist himself was forced to write a refutation of the information published by him.

His colleagues from the country's leading newspaper Cumhuriyet were treated much tougher. At the suggestion of President Erdogan for publishing a secret supply weapons Syrian militants Turkish security forces arrested editor-in-chief Can Dundar and author Erdem Gul. They were accused of disclosing state secrets and espionage. Now journalists face a breathtaking period in excess of two life sentences.

The US State Department sluggishly scolded the Turkish authorities for arresting Cumhuriyet employees. So calmed down. Such a reaction surprises little attentive observers. According to Srja Trifkovic, editor of the Foreign Affairs analytical publication, “the Turkish tail wagged the American dog for too long.” Now, in order to disguise the failure of its Middle Eastern policy, the United States is forced to partially ignore and distort the accusations against its ally. Instead of putting pressure on Erdogan and “forcing him to behave like a civilized person, which he, unfortunately, is not,” Trifkovic said in an interview with RT.

It seems that the reason is not only that Western leaders cannot force them to lead their partners in a civilized manner. This concept itself is blurred, and the moral degradation of politicians has become an irreversible process. No solidarity and expediency can justify crimes committed with the tacit consent of the atlantists in North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, and Ukraine close to us.

The textbook aphorism of the American President Roosevelt about the Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somose (“This is a son of a bitch, but this is our son of a bitch”) has outlived its time and is walking further around the planet, justifying its own strength and any crimes of the allies. So now it is meaningless to appeal to civilization, conscience and decency of Western politicians.

One thing remains - to preserve these good qualities in ordinary people, in society. Today, they are addressed by responsible public and religious figures. Here, for example, Talgat Tajuddin, chairman of the Central Spiritual Board of Muslims of Russia. Commenting on the information that cheap oil comes to Turkey from the territories seized by militants of the terrorist organization ISIS in Syria, the mufti noted that “a Muslim, according to Sharia, has no right to buy stolen goods and cover the gangster, and whoever steals the stolen goods is also a thief and bandit". (Interfax quote).

Talgat Tajuddin and a coalition of countries led by the United States called Talibat "Bandit." According to the mufti, it was with their aggression that chaos reigned in the Middle East, brought with it war, death and suffering of people. In light of this, the efforts of the Western world to launder the white-hot Turkish president and his company are more like the defense of an accomplice than the solidarity of the allies in the Atlantic alliance.

    Atlantic solidarity considerations prevent them from publicly denouncing Turkey

    This topic has been discussed more than once. Therefore, in order not to repeat myself, I will say one thing - we did not expect another from NATO. Sooner or later, but it will come out to them sideways.

      Why all this talk? as if they suddenly found out that Erdogan’s son trades with ISIS oil? and then before the plane was shot down did not know this? and then suddenly the revelations poured over and his pictures together with field commanders and stuff .. began to process our brains from all sides.
      everyone knew a long time ago

        Of course everyone knew. I have already expressed such thoughts here. The "fight" with Turkish vegetables, fruits and textiles also looks strange. Suddenly, as if by magic, it all began to be infected with some kind of mites, mold and some other garbage. Well, isn't it funny? Either the infection was deliberately missed before, or it has now been invented. As a result - one Putin's lies.

    Well, what else can they say? That the country is the most important player in Syrian history, on the territory of which the mattresses are based, is the actual accomplice of Daesh, and even in mutually beneficial symbiosis. And then there’s NATO membership. And imperial ambitions. And the door that regulates the flow of refugees into Europe - let’s release it, then hold it. And what, they will argue with the Turks? Not to life.

      "Erdogan is a son of a bitch, but this is OUR son of a bitch!" (C) - that's the whole position of the West.
      Therefore, it is necessary to collect the documents of his thieves, send them to all the UN, other organizations and countries, but continue to bend their own line.
      Here it’s interesting: None of the thieves’s striped coalition members dare to fly through Syria, although it’s two times closer (and in a month it will also be cheaper with the deployment of the Shairat air base), but our enemies do not want to do this, because you need to ask permission from Russia, and it’s like a Faberge sickle to them.
      Likewise, the bombing targets and what dunes they bomb and whether they bomb anything at all or simply pretend remain unknown to us.

    You can’t wash off a black dog. However, for the States, this game is obviously losing. The Turks of Erdogan themselves are by no means identified with Turkey, as with a country. Nationalism is booming there, yes. But does Erdogan pump oil for the country? All the profits go into his pocket. Someone will not notice the Russian sanctions, but someone will have a hard time. Turkey may soon change its president, and then what? It’s good if moderate people come to power, and if extremists? It may happen that NATO will be forced to conduct a counter-terrorist operation in a country that is a member of the bloc.
    It will be fun...

    Well, if you don't wash it off, it turns out that the Europeans were also mated. And so at least somehow to wash it off, but what is not washed away to say "well, here he is, Erdogan is difficult", and then again release on the brakes.
    Another question is that if we had this data, then why didn’t the Air Force crew bomb these fuel trucks before? Do not want to quarrel with the Turks? Then the current attempts about tomatoes and tourists look doubly sorry, because of the big money they won’t be seriously quarreling, they’ll just throw dust into their eyes. All this is sad, I feel sorry for the people who died ...

    To a question to the White House representative about why they would not bomb wells, storage plants and convoys of fuel trucks coming from ISIL-controlled territory to Turkey, a laconic answer was given: We thought that they would be useful in the future !!! It’s clear who the coalition bombed for a year and a half! In Syria, the entire infrastructure of education, health care, energy, transport, the city, the settlement, and the refugees and refugees has been destroyed! The stories of one of the hackers who destroy ISIS accounts are also noteworthy, that everything is closed to one company in the USA, which carefully and very professionally guards them! Until ASAD announces an unmanned zone over Syria and begins to BATTLE the invaders from the EU and the USA, nothing will change!

    "Bolshak" keeps America, try to squeak? Immediately in the asphalt. Everyone knew each other and it suited everyone. But not Us. The only pity is that it is only cognitive. But it seems to me that we will not let go of "our". Tomatoes, like apples, are on the table for everyone.

    Wild animals are aroused by the smell of blood, Turkey - by the smell of stolen oil. But the classics warned that stealing is a sin. Reread, adds intelligence and discretion.
