Turkey

Prologue:

Sting wrote in 1987 (great song and great bass):

“If we seek solace in the prisons of the distant past
Security in human systems we’re told will always always always last
Emotions are the sail and blind faith is the mast
Without the breath of real freedom we’re getting nowhere fast

If God is dead and an actor plays his part
His words of fear will find their way to a place in your heart
Without the voice of reason every faith is its own curse
Without freedom from the past things can only get worse

Sooner or later
Sooner or later

Our written history is a catalogue of crime
The sordid and the powerful, the architects of time
The mother of invention, the oppression of the mild
The constant fear of security, agression as its child

Sooner or later
Sooner or later

….

History will teach us nothing

Sooner or later just like the world’s first day
Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away

History will teach us nothing
History will teach us nothing

Know your human rights be what you come here for
Know your human rights be what you come here for”

Sting – ‘History will teach us nothing’ – “….nothing like the sun”

Turkey has been stating for many months that it wants no military intervention in Syria. Why? Because the Middle-East has exploded enough so far. Don’t you think so?

Nonetheless, Turkey may intervene in Northern Syria:

to start with, if the number of refugees rises dramatically, Turkey will intervene in Syria (today there are more than 40 000 Syrian refugees in Turkey).

My message to the Syrian citizens who flee the barbarian Syrian state: Turkey is your second country and home. You are welcome. Turkey and this planet are wide enough for all of us.

Secondly, there’s another reason for which Turkey may intervene: the terrorist organisation the PKK wants to take advantage of the situation in Syria in order to take full control of Northern Syria.

(You will find some articles below about Syria).

The United Nations is not an efficient organisation, that is why Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said on July 2011: “There are permanent members in the U.N. Security Council, and permanent [means] they will decide what will be happening in the world [in the future], it means they have the right of veto,” the minister said, calling this system unjust and in need of change. (Please read the short article which is here – July 13th 2011).

As for the Arab League, they have no power. They are ridiculous.

As for the EU, it is not politically organised, in other words it is a political flotsam. That’s why it can’t do anything but remaining an onlooker and waiting for the USA to act (the EU is like a circus because of some ridiculous people such as Barroso, Van Rompuy – two true impostors – or such as Merkel and her Turkey hater Elmar Brok).

But the USA and their shadowy lobbies seem not to be able to intervene in Syria owing to the opposition of Russia and China (and perhaps also because Turkey says “No”).

Well if Turkey was an EU member today, I’m sure that the EU would have been very strong and resolved that Syrian madness.

Turkey + The EU = peace in the Middle-East and in the globe.

The destiny of the world is in the hands of the powerful dark lobbies within the EU and the USA because they sabotage Turkey’s vital EU membership.

And in the meantime, we are used to witnessing numerous diversions. We’ve been being entertained for years.

Well here are a few recent useful articles:

Erdoğan: “Turkey will take action against PKK in Syria” – July 26th 2012

“Speaking on the TV 24 channel on Wednesday, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told in an interview that a PKK-linked Kurdish presence could give Turkey cause to intervene militarily in Syria. “There is a structure in northern Syria which was built by terrorist organization PKK and the Democratic Union of Kurdistan (PYD). Such a structure involves sensitive balances. We need to evaluate such a structure. We cannot just accept such a structure. A structure in northern Syria for us means a structure of terror. It is impossible for us to look favorably at such a structure. If a formation that’s going to be a problem, if there is a terror operation, if an irritant emerges, then intervening there would be our most natural right,” Erdoğan said, adding that Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu will travel to northern Iraq next week to talk with officials there about the situation in northern Syria and our sensitivities. Touching on the situation in Syria, Erdoğan said, “I want to stress it very openly. We wish to see an end to the tyranny in Syria. As soon as the tyranny is over, our Syrian brothers and sisters would reach tranquility and prosperity. Allegations that we approach the Assad regime based on sectarianism are not accurate. We have never accepted a world based on sectarianism. We have accepted a world based only on humanity.” Erdoğan added that Iran has lost all hopes on Syria and that Russia declared on Wednesday that they would never approve the Syrian regime use chemical weapons,” Erdoğan stated. “The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold a summit of heads of state in Mecca. Our President Abdullah Gül will attend the summit. We will do what we have to do as Turkey on Syria at the summit,” Erdoğan added.”

Turkey maintains electricity exports to Syria – July 26th 2012

“Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yıldız held a meeting with representatives from think-tanks in Ankara yesterday, and discussed the agenda with reporters as well. Concerning the electricity with Syria, Yıldız said, “Syria needs electric power more than any time, we keep supplying electricity to them. Incidents there are getting worrisome more and more every other day in Syria. We wish that the violation of human rights will end as soon as possible.””

Davutoğlu receives Syrian general Tlass – July 27th 2012

“Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu yesterday received Syrian general Manaf Tlass at the Foreign Ministry residence in Ankara. Following the meeting, Davutoğlu and Tlass, who defected from Syrian army and joined the opponents, attended a fast-breaking dinner (iftar). During the dinner, which was also attended by National Intelligence Agency (MIT) Undersecretary Hakan Fidan, Davutoğlu and Tlass exchanged opinions about recent developments and a possible civil war in Syria in detail. Tlass, a childhood friend of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, also informed Davutoğlu on his contacts following his departure from Syria. Reportedly, steps to be taken to ensure more international support for Syria and prevent a civil war in the country were also among issues which were discussed.”

Security summit convened in Ankara – July 26th 2012

“A security summit, chaired by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, was held at his office yesterday in Ankara with the participation of Deputy Prime Minister Beşir Atalay, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, Defense Minister Ismet Yılmaz, Interior Minister Idris Naim Şahin, Chief of General Staff Gen. Necdet Özel, Commander of the Gendarmerie Bekir Kalyoncu, National Intelligence Agency (MIT) Undersecretary Hakan Fidan and relevant undersecretaries. A statement released after the nearly two-hour long meeting said, “The activities of the separatist terrorist organization in our country and in neighboring countries have been discussed. Additional measures to be taken in every field concerning our national security were also discussed at the meeting, which reviewed work being carried out in the fight against terrorism.””

Epilogue:

Atatürk said: Peace at home. Peace in the world.

I never needed some words by Sting or Atatürk to support the peace in the world, but their words are worth being quoted.

I support the (world) peace because these five letters are engraved in my DNA.

Yours sincerely,

Cem
