Netherlands, US & Germany withdrawing Turkey based Patriot Missile Batteries

 Also! Woe, woe woe for the transgender Turks -  Standard Demonization via Identity Politics  brought to us all by the CBC- Canadian Brainwashing Corporation. Payed for with Canadian taxpayer dollars Look  at the bottom of this post for the identity politics spin. 

First, pick your link for Patriot Missile news or peruse them all

LinkLink  & Link
Germany, the United States and the Netherlands all deployed Patriots in early 2013 after Turkey asked its fellow NATO partners for help in protecting its territory amid an escalating civil war in Syria. The Dutch ended their mission earlier this year and were replaced by the Spanish.
 Following a report in German news magazine Der Spiegel alleging that the German Armed Forces would be pulling out of Turkey when their current deployment ends at the beginning of 2016, officials from the German Ministry of Defense confirmed to news broadcaster Deutsche Welle that they would be withdrawing the troops when their parliamentary mandate expires on January 31st.
 Washington would withdraw its Patriot missile batteries from the country in October
 So, the Netherlands has already ended their mission earlier this year- replaced by Spain
The US and Germany will remove missiles and partners by the end of 2015- No talk of replacement

Washington remains "committed to supporting Turkey's air defence capabilities, including against ballistic missile risks and threats... and its security and regional stability."
 "It does not reflect a decision by the NATO Alliance to reduce support for Turkey's air defence," the official told AFP.

Washington does NOT remain committed to supporting Turkey via it's air defences
And this does indeed reflect a decision by the NATO alliance to reduce support for Turkey

h/t also to anonymous linkie person for the heads up regarding the missile news


NATO Bows Out on Turkey. Turkey and Article 4

Demonization/ perception management/identity politics of the same kind we saw used to attack  Russia, rears it's ugly head this time against Turkey 

 Being transgender in Turkey: Some say they live in 'empire of fear'
The empire of fear..

This spin story coming hot on the heels of Erdogan's Palace:

Erdogan "ensconced in his Palace"- Yup, it's the dreaded Dictator/Palace Meme!


  1. It looks like there may be the need to bomb selected areas of Turkey to 'destroy' ISIS - in reality anything that could plausibly be mistaken for ISIS in the MSM.

    I never understood why Turkey allowed itself to be sucked into this. It was obvious from the get go that the Kurds, aka Zionist stooges, would gain big time, in the short term at least, from the destabilisation of Syria.

  2. Russia deploying fighters to Syria echoes of September 2013

  3. Hey Anonymous at 9:24 - I agree! The Kurds have always been the Zionist's stooges! This doesn't surprise me, and yeah Penny I saw the 'oh poor trans people in Turkey' BS and I just about hurled.

    Regime change coming soon to a Turkey near you.
