Erdogan - Washington: "Or I, or Kurds"

Turkish President Erdogan called a mistake that Turkey in 2003 year refused to deploy on its territory the American troops that participated in the invasion of Iraq. In addition, according to Erdogan, the mistake was also the refusal of the then official Ankara to directly participate in the military operation against the troops of Saddam Hussein. It is reported by the news agency Bloomberg.

Erdogan - Washington: "Or I, or Kurds"

Erdogan said that today's Turkey "will not repeat the mistakes of 2003 of the year, now with reference to Syria."

It is important to see the horizons. What is happening in Syria right now cannot last very long. At any time, the situation can change.

In other words, Erdogan would not mind that the Syrian army would not smash terrorist groups, but vice versa.

Stating that Turkey today supports the United States, Erdogan unwittingly explained why he made such a statement. According to Erdogan, "the United States needs to choose who is more important for them: me or the Kurds."

Associated Press It cites the statement of the Turkish president, made after the US special envoy visited the city of Kobani (Syria), which is under the control of representatives of the Kurdish communities from the Democratic Union party:

So do we need to trust us after this USA? Who is your partner - me or the terrorists from Kobani?

A few days earlier, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, Major General Igor Konashenkov, said that the Defense Ministry had suspicions that Turkey was preparing to launch a direct military invasion of Syria.

      Hoping to get some kind of response from the United States, the Turkish president will be compelled to be very deeply disappointed, because if he really was of deep interest to the Americans, or at least respected them, these meetings would either not be held or would have been closed. And so, and without Erdogan’s questions, it’s clear that such US actions are a clear demonstration of double standards. So why ask something that you still don’t get an answer for, just put yourself in an extremely unsightly position?

    Under Recep, the chair sways. The Turkish traders by nature, and they feel a blow to their wallet is much more painful than a military defeat. And Turkey’s economy is 70 percent oriented to the CIS countries. And Turkey’s economic growth has been possible thanks to our shuttles and construction contracts in Russia , Kazakstan, etc. Therefore, the Turks will not forgive Erdogan for such a perdimonocle. He’s looking for a sick one who cuts a little eyelet on his neck. Only the East is a delicate matter. Exceptional may not have enough money to compensate for losses from Russian sanctions. Bismarck did this in the 19th century, today no one will even allow Americans.

    Like it or not, Erdogan is playing a very dirty and dangerous game. It is already obvious to everyone that everything that happened in Syria was initiated by the USA but Erdogan embodied. Wanting to unhook a part of Syria. It was Turkey that became the training base and the main supply country of ISIS. And Erdogan is clearly not ready to retreat, although the profits from oil have cut his costs dozens of times, he wants to bring the matter to a victorious end. But ... He will also become a pawn in the game of the United States, the Americans will create Kurdistan at all costs, they need him to destabilize the situation and create a powerful puppet state in spite of everyone, ready to fight to the bitter end. IMHO of course.

      Dear, I agree with you. What does he want? So that the Americans abandon the Kurds? So after all, the Great Kurdistan project has already been launched. And neither the Americans nor we are hiding this. And the supply of weapons to the Kurds and all other nishtyaks speaks in favor of this plan. So that the Turks of the Khan in any case. They were pinned to the wall. And they will not be able to fight. And they are fighting, and on their own territory. It's just that the Turks entertain themselves with the illusion that they are NATO members, almost Europeans. But for Americans and Europeans. Turks are the same Arabs, only slightly washed. And they will never fit in for the Turks, they will come up with hundreds of excuses. The very fact of supplying and training Kurds is a direct spit in the face of the Turks, indicating their place at the bucket.
      And now Erdogan is a rat driven into a corner. He began to rattle his arms and set out ultimatums.
      And the funny thing is that this clown is a stranger, both for Islamists and for Europeans. And, if he is dragged around to be castrated, like a lascivious cat, then no one will be hurt and upset.

He apparently believes that Russian planes "will not dare" to bomb the troops of a NATO member when they invade the territory of a sovereign state. In Iraq, it worked! They acted and resigned themselves. And why won't it work with Syria? But because no one invited any coalition to Syria. No Ottomans, no Saudis, no other rascals. Assad is already eight kilometers from the Turkish border. When it is closed, Daesh, beloved by Erdogan, will have a reason to show him to do it. And presenting serious ones with the barmaleev, it will not seem a little ... So he is ready to throw his country into a conflict fraught with WAR, after which Turkey can suffer greatly.

    The error was not in 2003, but in 2011. In 2003, Erdogan was not allowed to get into the Iraqi adventure by parliament and generals. By 2011, he had cleared both of them. Erdogan has long been judged for the betrayal of Ataturk's covenants and the collapse of the state. The rope is crying over him. It was in 2003 that the Turkish General Staff announced to Erdogan that joining the anti-Iraq coalition would ultimately lead to the collapse of Turkey. But ... Erdogan does not live in the interests of Turkey or the Turkish people. He is an Islamist. He was an Islamist, an Islamist and remained. Spit on him in Turkey. The main thing is to be in the same boat with ISIS.

    As for the Kurds, he also drives a blizzard. Once upon a time, back in 2003, the States relied on Kurdistan.

    So now he is in an interesting position. He crap Russia to please the United States. And the States threw him like a boy. The best option is Erdogan’s resignation from all posts, parliament’s mopping up, return to Ataturk’s constitution. That is, a coup d'état for six months (it was spelled out in the Turkish Constitution and used a couple of times), the normalization of relations with the Russian Federation, the rejection of Islamic principles, the development of a secular state. And everything will be alright. Well, except for the States that won't like it. There will be no chaos.

      Bakhtiyar, came to the same conclusion as soon as Russia "harnessed". GDP would not climb if it were not sure of the rightness and victory! Then the question arises: "Who will the people of Syria choose in the elections after VICTORY?" The answer is obvious - behind Assad is Russia with GDP - a guarantee of the country's SECURITY! Any sane Syrian, after such "Stalingrad", will vote only for Assad! "Syrian LEO" or "Middle East LEO" - something like that, well, or find how to exalt their leader - the East knows how. Even the KURDS (Syrian) would rather respect and befriend Assad, try to negotiate their future.
      This is what surprises me. GDP today made the king of Bahrain a truly royal gift - an Akhal-Teke, champion of his breed, a three-year-old !!! You can’t even buy this for money and gold! And Bahrain is a satellite of the SA and especially the USA. There is something very interesting. Imagine now Qatari and Saudi! Their jaws dropped - why such a gift !? And how do they now behave with the king of Bahrain? What are they agreeing to? The riddle for them is still that - the GDP of such gifts did not make them !!! hi
      The Arabians have often gone to Moscow - they are looking for a new roof and want to sell oil not only for bucks (Iran, Kazakhstan and Russia already do this) !?

        Quote: Kasym

        Akhal-Teke is certainly nice. But what did the king give Putin?
        Sword of Victory (!) From Damascus (!) Steel.

        In general, according to the number of visits to Moscow, the leaders of the Middle East are joking that the hajj must be performed not in Mecca, but in Moscow.

    The partition of Turkey is just around the corner: Russian revenge for the downed Su-24
    After Turkey quickly spoiled many years of stable relations with Russia, the question arose: what are the future prospects for confrontation between the countries? The Kurdish issue turned out to be one of the most explosive; Moscow, in turn, announced the imminent opening of a representative office of the Syrian Kurds in the Russian capital. But besides the Kurds, there is another catastrophic threat to Turkey - the Kars Treaty.
    The essence of the problem
    The Kremlin can inflict a diplomatic “stab in the back” by revising and denouncing the Moscow Treaty of March 16 1921 of the year. According to this agreement, the territory of Turkey increased by 30% due to changes in borders in the Caucasus. The problem is that this agreement was signed by representatives of the self-proclaimed Kemalist government, which at that time was not recognized by any state in the world. The Sevres treaty on the division of the colonial territories of the Ottoman Empire, signed by the administration of Sultan Mehmed VI, had legal force.
    By the time the treaty was signed, the Kemalists were actively moving deep into the Caucasus, taking advantage of the weakness of the Soviet government and the echo of the civil war in Russia, and threatened to go further with the Entente. Turkey planned to create "Great Turan" - a political union of all Turkic-speaking peoples up to Kazan and Altai. The negotiations between Kemalists and London became known to the head of the Soviet information bureau in Trebizond G. Astakhov, about which he immediately informed G.V. Chicherin. Therefore, it is not difficult to prove the coercive nature of the Soviet signature under the treaty.
    The first clause of the Moscow Treaty includes the following provision:
    “Each of the contracting parties agrees, in principle, not to recognize any peace treaties or other international acts, the adoption of which would be compelled by force ...”
    Thus, on the one hand, the Soviet government was under pressure, on the other hand, the signature was put by unrecognized Kemalists, although the government of Sultan Mehmed VI was still recognized in the world as a legitimate, legal force.
    Kars Treaty
    In turn, the Kars Treaty is based on the political construction of the Moscow Treaty. The Carr Treaty secured the transition of significant territories of Armenia and Georgia to Turkey. At the same time, Azerbaijan also received part of the territory.
    Despite the fact that the Kemalists were able to sign the Lausanne treaty, according to which the interests of the Kurds and Armenia remained out of work, the Servian treaty was also fulfilled - Izmir, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and part of the Arabian Peninsula went under the protectorate of the Entente.
    The United States refused to take into account the interests of Kurds and Armenians, otherwise an independent Christian Armenia and Kurdistan would have appeared on the political map of the world, which would have become a safe “laying” for the USSR in confrontation with Turkey.
    Armenia's attitude to Kars agreement
    Turkey took advantage of the betrayal of the Dashnak government and with the support of the Germans captured the Kars and Ardagan regions of Armenia. Then, in the period from 1915 to 1922, the head of the Kemalists - Kemal Ataturk - began the genocide of Armenians in the eastern region of Armenia. According to the Armenian Church, more than 6 million Armenians became victims of the Turks. Turkey never acknowledged the fact of genocide, while Armenians will never forgive this for the Turks.
    The Turks were also noted for the fact that in 1922, they killed about 100 of thousands of Greeks and Armenians in Smyrna, and in 1923, about half a million more Greeks in the Black Sea.
    Today, Armenia continues to insist on the fact of the Armenian genocide by the Turks and refuses to confirm the Kars Treaty.

    In the 1945 year, the USSR already raised the issue of denunciation of this treaty, but then the United States sided with Turkey, having nuclear weapons behind its back. Actually, the bombing of the peaceful cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was aimed at intimidating the Soviet Union. Today the situation is fundamentally different.
    The denunciation of the Kars Treaty will lead to the process of restoration of historical justice in international organizations and at the level of diplomacy, which will be supported by Armenia, Georgia and Greece.
    Israel will also join this decision for an objective reason - Islamist Turkey, which is at the forefront of radical jihadism in the Middle East, is not satisfied with Israel. It is safer and better for them if Turkey is besieged and a third of its territory is taken back.
    Another consequence of the denunciation will undoubtedly be the need to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed territories. Turkey is on the side of Azerbaijan in this conflict, and with such an unpredictable politician as Erdogan, it is very difficult to expect a peaceful settlement.
    Russian-Georgian relations after the expulsion of the guest performer Saakashvili at the moment also went to rapprochement. It is about abolishing the visa regime.
    Denouncing the Kars Treaty in a diplomatic way is also not easy, but if you move inland from the Kars Treaty, then the historical boundaries can suit everyone. Except Turkey and their proteges.
