Erdogan Using al-Qaeda, Nusra Front to Encircle Kurds - Turkish Lawmaker

Erdogan Using al-Qaeda, Nusra Front to Encircle Kurds - Turkish Lawmaker | Global politics | Scoop.it
Turkish parliament member and Kurdish activist Osman Baydemir said that Recep Tayyip Erdogan is encouraging Islamist terrorists to encircle and isolate the 20 million Kurds who live in the eastern half of the country.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Turkey wants to bring to power [in Syria] a regime [with ties to] al-Qaeda and al-Nusra to isolate the Kurds," Baydemir stated on Wednesday during his visit to Washington, DC to meet with State Department officials and members of the US Congress.

The Kurdish parliamentarian, who was previously the mayor of the city of Diyarbakir, accused Erdogan of welcoming ties with the extreme Islamist groups.

"[Erdogan] doesn’t want Kurds as neighbors, but he would like to see al-Nusra or al-Qaeda as neighbors," Baydemir said.

The Syrian Army is Not Attacking Aleppo But Defending It

The Syrian Army is Not Attacking Aleppo But Defending It | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Syrian conflict has seen many media distortions but there is one especially which I must take vigorous issue with.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

During the protests in 2011 that preceded the war — which properly began with the rebel offensive that was launched in mid 2012 — Aleppo held largely aloof from the protests — a fact the Western media at the time admitted.

That too suggests that the greater part of the people of Aleppo support the government, or at least do not strongly oppose it.

To say therefore that the Syrian army is attacking Aleppo is to distort the truth.

It is akin to saying that the Red Army in 1943 was attacking Stalingrad because the German army had captured most of it.

A more factual way of describing the fighting around Aleppo is to say that the city and its garrison have successfully withstood a three year siege by the rebels, which is now close to being lifted.

M of A - Why Kerry Blames The Opposition For The Continuing Bombing In Syria

Enrique Ferro's insight:

After sabotaging the talks the Saudis came out with an offer to send ground troops to invade Syria if the U.S. would take the command of such an operation. No one is taking that offer seriously. The Saudi troops who try to invade Yemen get beaten to pulp. The Saudis themselves say they had to closed 500 school and evacuate 12 villages with 7,000 people in Saudi Arabia because the Yemenis are now invading them. Their army has lots of expensive toys but is clearly not able to put them to use. The offer to send troops is simply to goad the U.S. into starting a war with Russia.

'It’s a Power Game': Erdogan’s Ultimatum to Washington Decoded

'It’s a Power Game': Erdogan’s Ultimatum to Washington Decoded | Global politics | Scoop.it
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has drawn a line in the sand; either the US supports Ankara or the Kurdish people. Speaking to Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear, activist Elif Sarican and journalist Eric Draitser discuss the meaning behind Erdogan’s comments.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Erdogan is demented. He belongs in a lunatic asylum. Unfortunately he has other mad politicians such as Frau Merkel who still listen to him. The American Masters should call the bluff of their irreverent servant. And then we'd see what he does. If they don't they may keep a very bully Turkey pushing everybody else to a thuggish path, but Russia would win over the Kurds, which is an unpleasant scenario for the US. The US foreign policy is in a shambles, it remains to be seen whether Erdogan wins his gambit or not. He is likely to lose it, suffice to say that Israel favours a Kurdish state...

Enrique Ferro's insight:

The West (or call it NATO, or anything you like – we all know what I mean!) has, in the most cynical manner, destabilized and destroyed the entire Middle East. As it has in virtually all the continents of the world, it ruined tremendous cultures, plundered all it could put its hands on, turned proud people into slaves. Libya and Iraq are no more! I can testify, as I work all over the Middle East.
