It’s seems the time has come for one of those all encompassing posts- the ones that attempt to make sense of the non-sense. It’s as if there is presently a whirl wind of activity around Turkey seemingly unrelated but in actuality- all very related.
This is becoming ever more obvious and heavy handed. Yet, many still don’t or can’t see it. Not sure which it is? I’ve long stated here that the propaganda employed to target Turkey is necessarily devious and liberally applied- Pun intended. While it may be true that Turkey is a NATO nation it is one that has been barely tolerated by the Atlantacist crowd. The crowd that truly runs NATO.
Very brief history-
Turkey was manipulated into NATO to take advantage of it’s geographical location with the encouragement of Kurdish agitation/ors Yes, that's how long the Kurds have been proxies for NATO/UK and Russia. As was covered in Caroll Quigley’s book: Tragedy and Hope.
Did Russia agitate? Did Britain agitate? Did both parties agitate? Can’t be sure. But the end result which benefited the NATO alliance saw the US step up in the region & Turkey join NATO. The Kurds were happy to play the for profit proxies- same then as today
Jay Dyer Tragedy and Hope Lecture Series
- 1945 Anti-Turkish agitation was encouraged among the Kurds- By the end of 1946 Britain found the burden of providing military and economic aid to Greece and Turkey too heavy for its over-strained resources.
- It was, moreover, eager to overcome the American aloofness in the Near East, where it felt it was bearing much of the Soviet pressure alone.
- Accordingly, in February 1947, it threatened to withdraw completely from Greece and Turkey by April 1st.
- On March 12th the American President enunciated the "Truman Doctrine" to a joint session of Congress.
-His request for $400 million for aid to Greece and Turkey was granted, after considerable debate, in May 1947.
Summarizing- In 1947 Turkey was being attacked by Sunni Muslim Kurdish proxies backed by either/ or both/ Britain and Russia-
Brief digression- the modern day reverence for these terroristic proxy fighters is bizarre!- From at least 1947 forward the PKK and their other rebrands have chosen crime, murder, smuggling as a way of life. They were employed willingly, for profit! They profit from the misery they force on others- Including other Kurds! If this band of merry marauding murdering thugs is worth reverence then I fail to see why Osama Bin Laden and his mujaheddin weren't also as equally lauded by the masses?
Except that OBL and company weren't marketed in quite the same way, were they?
Sadly, it is the marketing, the meme and the way your mind has been messaged/massaged via the media telling you what to think that creates the reverence.

-The US grants 400 million, in 1947 dollars, in aid to Greece and Turkey, undoubtedly in preparation for their induction into NATO- and lo and behold Greece and Turkey simultaneously become NATO members- You decide who benefited the most from the Kurds attacking Turkey 60 plus years ago.
Using this calculator just to give you an idea in today's dollars how much the US ponied up in aid to Turkey and Greece the 1947 400 million is equal today to $4,491,758,139.53 in 2017. Yes that is very nearly 4.5 billion dollars. The US could certainly buy everything and everyone that needed to be bought- Keep in mind that NATO was created, as stated by the very first secretary General of NATO General Ismay, "to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down" Turkey would have served as an effective foil, at that time, in this regard
(foil: prevent something considered wrong or undesirable from succeeding)
The Cuban Missile Crisis and Turkey
Keeping the stated purpose of NATO in mind let us now talk about the Cuban missile crisis as it pertains to Turkey- Most people don’t realize that during the Cuban missile crisis the US had moved nuclear weapons into Turkey aiming them straight at the USSR- This was the real crisis. It was not simply that the “Soviets” were moving missiles to Cuba- the reality was Cuba was both the response to and the obfuscation by the US of their nuclear missiles being in Turkey
“Was a 13-day (October 16–28, 1962) confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union concerning American ballistic missile deployment in Italy and Turkey with consequent Soviet ballistic missile deployment in Cuba”
Nuclear missile placement in Turkey was an extremely provocative move on the part of the US- The Soviets responded- The crisis was on. This is NATO nearly bringing the planet to the brink of nuclear war. The geographical locale of Turkey was crucial to keeping Russia/USSR down
Let’s bring this up to present day:
Turkey, as it is today, is no longer necessary to the great game. Europe is weak- It’s been unionized. It’s history- stolen. Europes people are losing their roots and identity. Europe has a faceless technocratic bureaucracy running the show in the most fascist/communistic manner possible. Europe is servile to NATO and by extension US.
This is the plan for Turkey as well. A plan Turkey is resisting. The powers that shouldn't be don't like resistance to their plans. Their very"borg" like in their domination of the planet- Assimilating everyone into the great hive- Filled with mindless worker drones competing for resources and put to death when when no longer usable.

"Resistance is Futile"? Resistance is Required!
Turkey, as is planned, can be made subservient and passive like all the great nations of the past by being destabilized, balkanized and a portion of it absorbed into the jumbled mess that is the EU. The southern portion can be turned into NATO’s new southern flank Kurdistan aka Israel 2.0. The fractured Turkey will have two obedient governments installed. One in the Turkish state ensconced in the EU- The other in Kurdistan.
If all goes well for NATO, Israel and the Kurds. Turkey will be supplanted as NATO’s Southern Flank. It seems to be just a matter of time.....I hold the opinion that Turkish leadership has become aware of what looks to be it’s impending betrayal
A bit of background
“For a long time, Turks have resented the “curse of strategic significance” related to its forming NATO’s southern flank. They felt it enabled the military to keep a watchful eye over their politicians”The Military keeping a watchful eye over Turkey’s politicians. Makes one wonder who exactly is is in charge, doesn’t it? I don't wonder so much, but others may?
How to Betray an Ally in Plain Site?
The creation of a perception of a Turkey as so out of control, so despotic, will almost certainly leave the NATO allies no choice but the save Turkey from itself- That's one way to spin the desired intervention...
Initially I too fell for the early spin and shouldn’t have. My infatuation with Syria blinded me to the reality of the situation- There has never been any evidence that Turkey created ISIS or supported ISIS- Just a whole lot of spin- Supporting ISIS was never beneficial to Turkey- Any more then it was beneficial to Syria to support ISIS and that is a claim that has been bandied about on many an occasion. ISIS was created in Iraq- with the help of US/UK and Israel. This is something I'd written about on more then one occasion- three years ago? My mistake at that time? I didn't understand how fully & completely the Sunni Muslim Kurdish militias were in thrall to the US/UK-
Where there are contradictions, there are lies-
This does not mean Turkey did not support specific actors in Syria- They did. And they did so in order to have a say in the obvious attempt to ‘remake’ Syria. To ensure their interests would be considered. As much as I do not like this, reality necessitates Turkish involvement for them to survive as a present day nation state. Any nation or any person would do this if faced with their own destruction via that which was occurring on the other side of their border- Or on the other side of their front door.
Turkey- the PKK and the changing narrative
Have you noticed that the PKK/TAK/YPG pick your brand, has not carried out any recent large scale bombing attacks in Turkey? The silence is deafening.. It’s been how long now? Correct me if I’m mistaken but it looks to be mid December 2016
If there has been any since let me know?
I suspect the quiet is a prelude to this changing perception tact... Perhaps better characterized as a reality revision- “Reality revisions are agenda-driven and thereby fictitious narratives carefully scripted to revise an entire global reality in order to meet or fulfill that agenda”
The PKK has undoubtedly been told by their bosses to refrain from attacking Turkey during the run up to the referendum. The reality revision agenda at this time is to focus on the referendum and spin it as a negative. Bombings, mayhem and death would elicit sympathetic responses and/or empathy for Turkey which is not desired at this time.
Alongside the absence of PKK attacks we have an extremely coercive campaign of Turkey targeting/disinfo being waged by the US and it’s compliant lackies
Willy Loman/Scott Creighton covered some of this news in these posts:
*About that Dusted Off “news” That Gen. “Mad Russian” Flynn Lobbied for Turkey…
*Dutch police deport Turkish minister to Germany after barring her from consulate in Rotterdam
Before the Dutch incident Germany played it’s servile roll.
A referendum vote that could increase the powers of Turkey's president is threatening to cause a diplomatic row with Germany.Austria has conspired as well
Four planned Turkish political meetings in Austria were canceled on Friday in the latest signs of unease across Europe over a series of campaign events to rally support among expatriate Turks for President Tayyip Erdogan.This is a coordinated campaign to interfere with the Turkish referendum
A constitutional referendum will be held in Turkey on Sunday, 16 April 2017. Voters will vote on a set of 18 proposed amendments to the Constitution of TurkeyThe referendum is an internal Turkish matter. For the Turkish government and it’s people.
We should ask ourselves why the coordinated campaign against Turkey's, her people and their right to choose their own way? Is it a problem of too much freedom for a people NATO sees as chattel- There to use, abuse and toss aside. Much the same as they see the rest of us
I’ve written previously about the referendum and the present day constitution which was a military coup constitution.. Speaking for myself I can no more condemn the Turk’s right to have a referendum on the future direction of their nation state then I could condemn Crimea for doing the same.
Europe/US seem hell bent on quashing external support for the referendum. Expect the spin to amplify and multiply exponentially until the April date. Entertain the possibility that another coup attempt may be made before this vote occurs also. Or quite possibly a false flag to frame the Turks, most probably in areas with a higher then average Kurdish populace- to advance the ‘eternal victim’ meme. It’s a good thing that the propaganda against Turkey has been so heavy handed for so long now- It’s really conditioned the western response ahead of time..
A few more things you should all be aware of..
1-I should mention here that Turkey gave the boot last year to a bunch of western backed NGO’s including , most recently, Mercy Corps- funded by USAIDhttps://blog.usaid.gov/tag/mercy-corps/
The aid organisation Mercy Corps says Turkey has revoked its registration, forcing it to stop operations from Turkey?Undoubtedly in Syrian territory annexed by PKK
“Mercy Corps' statement said its operations inside Syria would continue.”
Last year... “ in November the government closed hundreds of non-governmental groups it accused of being linked to terrorist organisations or acting against national security, as part of a crackdown launched after an attempted military coup in July”
A Russian replay? Indeed. How much do you all want to bet Mercy Corp was being used to bring in the means to destabilize both Syria and Turkey? I’m quite confident they were doing exactly that. They were also accused of aiding in the black market organ/blood trafficking with the Kurds. A claim I find to be credible. Given the history of both parties, USAID affiliated NGO’s and the Sunni Muslim Kurdish proxies
“Mercy Corps was not the only humanitarian group the pro-Justice and Development Party (AKP) targeted.
It alleged the Irish aid charity GOAL, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), and the International Medical Corps (IMC) “were providing financial and military support to the PKK.”
The IRC is a familiar NATO NGO..
Yenisafak newspaper claimed Mercy Corps, partly funded by grants from the US government, “was engaged in Syrian PKK’s human trafficking, organ trade, and arms smuggling activities.”2- Turkey has fallen out of favour with NATO/US-
Yet so many ignore the coup which was US backed- I've zero doubt, at this time, of that myself.
The alternative media never mentions the fact that Turkey is building this expensive border wall along the shared Syrian/Turkish border- More then half completed present day... Last mentioned here
* August 2016 - Turkey's Border Wall With SyriaI believe this is a case of cognitive dissonance- Contradicting their indoctrinated beliefs- Turkey's border wall runs contrary to many claims made about Turkey. Some alternative sites also previously claimed Turkey was annexing Mosul, Iraq- That was not planned nor did it ever occur.
