NATO Turkey Under Erdogan Knows No Shame: ISIS Waiting to Slaughter the Kurds

President Bashar al-Assad warned the world that by allowing Gulf petrodollars, Turkey and the murky role of several Western governments to embolden sectarianism and terrorism, that this reality would come to haunt the region and much further afield. Nations like America, France and the United Kingdom once more betrayed the Middle East by pandering to Gulf petrodollars and the Ottoman dream under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The upshot of this is the mass exodus of vast numbers of people and untold death and destruction. Therefore, while Kurds face the beheading barbarians of ISIS, it is clear that NATO Turkey cares little because under Erdogan the role of Ankara is clear for all to see. This applies to Turkey and its involvement within the ratlines of various al-Qaeda affiliated groups and various sectarian forces that are fighting in Syria – alongside standing by while Kurds face being cleansed under the noses of the armed forces of NATO Turkey.
Kurdish women, grandmothers, university students and children are now fighting in Kobani alongside regular Kurdish militiamen. This is happening right in front of NATO Turkey, a nation whereby vast numbers of international jihadists and various terrorist groups have prospered based on Turkey’s generous border controls. In other words, when Kurds want to fight to save their brethren, then the armed forces of Turkey do everything to stop this. However, when psychopathic year zero Takfiris want to utilize border areas between Syria and Turkey – and obtain military hardware and covert training – then NATO Turkey is most generous.
The Daily Mail reports about the reality of NATO Turkey by stating: “Fourteen Turkish tanks were lined up just 200 yards across from Kobani. Turkey, a member of NATO, has done little despite pledging to stop Kobani from falling to IS. One Twitter user wrote: so our NATO ally is standing close by, watch (ing) kids and grannies fight IS?”
Equally alarming, The Daily Mail reports: “Syrian Kurds have said that not only are the Turks not helping, they are actually hindering the defence of Kobani by preventing Kurdish militiamen in Turkey from crossing the border.”
Obviously, the beheading and enslaving nature of ISIS doesn’t currently worry the political elites based in Ankara. After all, while ISIS is beheading Shia Muslims, slaughtering the Yazidis, persecuting Christians, butchering the Alawites and killing indigenous Sunni Muslims that rebuke this Takfiri terrorist outfit; it is clear that Turkey did a deal with ISIS over the hostage crisis. Similarly, it is abundantly clear that ISIS isn’t concerned about slaughtering Kurds and enslaving Kurdish women right in front of the armed forces of Turkey. In other words, a done-deal was agreed upon between Turkey and ISIS thereby rendering outside condemnation nil and void within the corridors of power in Ankara.
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu of Turkey, the other partner in crime of the Ottoman dream, isn’t concerned about the plight of Kobani just like Erdogan. Indeed, while hundreds of Kurds have been killed in Kobani by ISIS – and where the fear of women being enslaved and sold persists based and past (and ongoing) evil deeds towards Alawites, Christians, Shabaks, Yazidis and Shia Muslims by brutal and barbaric Takfiri Islamists; the only response by Turkey is to kill more Kurds at home. At the same time, the armed forces of Turkey and security forces prevent Kurds from Turkey helping their brethren. In other words, NATO Turkey is killing Kurds at home – and Turkish demonstrators who oppose Erdogan and Davutoglu face the same fate – while helping ISIS to butcher Kurds based on preventing Kurds from helping their brothers and sisters across the border. However, despite this brutal reality NATO Turkey faces no major international repercussions because of its geopolitical importance – just like the ongoing illegal occupation of Northern Cyprus and the destruction of nearly all symbols of Orthodox Christianity.
Erdogan and Davutoglu should be deemed international pariahs for allowing jihadists from all over the world to enter Syria and obtain military arms. Indeed, images show the armed forces of Turkey and MIT being in cohorts with ISIS and other barbaric sectarian forces in Syria including the FSA (Free Syrian Army).
Even the Vice President of America denounced Turkey and other so-called allies for being behind the growing Takfiri, sectarian and terrorist menace. Of course, America also is responsible for helping so-called moderates that also behead and slaughter because all anti-Syrian government forces have emboldened the Takfiri virus and enabled the utter destabilization of many parts of Iraq and Syria.
The Vice President of America, Joe Biden, comments: “The Turks, who are great friends — I have a great relationship with Erdogan, whom I spend a lot of time with — the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down (Syrian President Bashar) Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war.”
Biden further state: “What did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad — except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra and al-Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”
ISIS may be enslaving Christians, Yazidis and others – alongside butchering Alawites, Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims opposed to this barbaric Takfiri terrorist group – but despite this, Turkey deems the secular government of Syria, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) to be the real threat. Of course, this is absurd in the context of ISIS, al-Nusra, and other barbaric terrorist forces, that slaughter for fun while praising Allah. This absurdity is clearly visible based on the ratlines of Turkey with regards to international jihadists and for Turkey in asking for a no-fly-zone, despite ISIS having no military aircraft.
Reuters reports about the brutal oppression of Kurds in Turkey based on their utter desperation in witnessing Kurds being slaughtered and facing the beheading sword of ISIS. This media source comments: “Islamic State fighters launched a renewed assault on the Syrian city of Kobani on Wednesday night, and at least 21 people were killed in riots in neighbouring Turkey where Kurds rose up against the government for doing nothing to protect their kin.”
Reuters also makes it abundantly clear that America is at a loss with the behavior of Turkey because this agency reports: “There’s no question the U.S. government thinks Turkey can do more, should do more, and that they are using excuses not to do more,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “We have been sending that message very clearly behind the scenes.”
The people of Syria and Iraq have suffered untold numbers of deaths based on the policies of major NATO and Gulf powers that have simply got it wrong. After all, the armed forces of Syria are fighting for the rich religious mosaic of Syria and continue to fight valiantly despite the many nations that are against this independent state. This reality is clearly visible because in government controlled areas in Syria all different faith groups co-exist within the united soul of this nation. In other words, minority groups like Christians are fleeing from the forces – or actions – of outside nations in both Iraq and in Syria where the government is weak. However, Christians and other minorities are not fleeing the armed forces of Syria because the army of this nation is multi-religious just like the government itself whereby all faith groups are represented.
It is essential that Turkey is taken to task for the deeds being done under the leadership of Erdogan and Davutoglu. Similarly, it is essential to boost all central forces in Iraq and Syria and for a genuine political solution to be found involving the leaders of both nations. Likewise, the Gulf petrodollar terrorist and Takfiri funding machine must be stopped and Western nations must stop their folly of destabilizing nations – after all, every day people are dying in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. At the same time, regional nations from Mali to Pakistan (self induced because ISI in Pakistan supported international terrorists in Afghanistan and Kashmir) have become destabilized. Therefore, the same nations must be held accountable for the policies that they are enacting.
Turning back to Kobani, then in the Kurdish hour of need both Erdogan and Davutoglu have washed their bloody hands over the situation by boosting the ISIS Takfiri virus. In other words, Kurds are being butchered by ISIS Takfiri Islamists, while the security apparatus of Turkey is killing Kurds and preventing the Kurds from helping their brethren. This reality is utterly barbaric and now Turkey is a regional and international pariah. Of course, the people of this nation are blameless because the responsibility solely lies with Erdogan, Davutoglu and the ruling elites within this nation.
