Turkey to Have Permanent Military Base Near Iraq’s Mosul - Reports | Global politics | Scoop.it
Turkey will have a permanent military base near the Iraqi province of Mosul Bashiqah, where Turkish troops are training Iraqi Kurdish fighters (Peshmerga), the Hurriyet Daily News reported on Saturday.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Turkey doesn't stop violating its neighbours territories, Greece and Iraq. They should react following the very Turkish example (only such violations are real, and not imaginary!!!)

M of A - Erdogan Moves To Annexes Mosul

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Should Mosul be cleared of the Islamic State the Turkish heavy weapons will make it possible for Turkey to claim the city unless the Iraqi government will use all its power to fight that claim. Should the city stay in the hands of the Islamic State Turkey will make a deal with it and act as its protector. It will benefit from the oil around Mosul which will be transferred through north Iraq to Turkey and from there sold on the world markets. In short: This is an effort to seize Iraq's northern oil fields.

Russia vs. "Pan-Turkism": problems and opportunities from Gasprinsky to Hitler and NATO

Russia vs. "Pan-Turkism": problems and opportunities from Gasprinsky to Hitler and NATO | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

It is ironic that Turkey was a beneficiary of WW2 even before it started, as it annexed the Syrian province of Hathay under the benevolent sight of France, which presented Turkey with a territory France controled as the Mandate power... Of course in 1941 Turkey wanted more, and it would have ignored its promises to France, as France was in the Nazi orbit... Trusting Turkey is like trusting the US!

BREAKING: International Coalition bombs Syrian Arab Army positions in Deir Ezzor

BREAKING: International Coalition bombs Syrian Arab Army positions in Deir Ezzor | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Now the Syrian warning that it will use the S-300 against the so-called international coalition is not only legitimate but more than justified and the warplanes flying illegally over the Syrian territory would be well advised to pull off.

EU Rewards Turkish State Terrorism

EU Rewards Turkish State Terrorism | Global politics | Scoop.it
Only days after Turkey's fatal shoot-down of a Russian warplane, the European Union announces it is giving the Ankara government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan €3 billion in a "deal" allegedly aimed at halting the flow of refugees to the EU.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Merkel has fallen to Erdogan's blackmail. After opening te gates to push a tsunami of refugees to Eldorado Europe, he has demanded $3bn to close them again and he has got them!!! The EU is a shambles because it has surrealist "leaders".

Turkey president Erdogan: Women are not equal to men - BBC News | Global politics | Scoop.it
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says women cannot be treated as equal to men, and accuses feminists of rejecting motherhood.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

His growing power has made of him a megalomaniac autocrat. Just remember the palace he had illegaly built in Ankara... He treats the Turkish state as his private dominion, his private farm. I wonder how long the Turks will still tolerate this state of affairs...

The Biggest Obama Scandal? He Knows That Turkey Is Buying Oil From ISIS And He Is Doing Nothing To Stop It

The Biggest Obama Scandal? He Knows That Turkey Is Buying Oil From ISIS And He Is Doing Nothing To Stop It | Global politics | Scoop.it
At this point, is there anyone that still doesn't know that ISIS is selling hundreds of millions of dollars of stolen oil in Turkey? As you will see below, this is very much an open secret, but the mainstream media in the United States is being strangely silent about this. Why? Well, because if the truth came out Turkey would have to be kicked out of NATO and Barack Obama would probably be facing impeachment proceedings. He claims to be fighting ISIS, and yet an endless parade of trucks carrying

Syria Right to Hit NATO Warplanes

Syria Right to Hit NATO Warplanes | Global politics | Scoop.it
Obama said Turkey had “every right to protect its skies” (even though the evidence shows that the Russian fighter jet did not breach Turkish territory).

In other words: what’s good for Turkey is good for Syria, as for any other nation.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Obama said Turkey had “every right to protect its skies” (even though the evidence shows that the Russian fighter jet did not breach Turkish territory).

In other words: what’s good for Turkey is good for Syria, as for any other nation.

Now, some might say it is a reckless move for Syria to train its skies with the powerful S-300.

That logic amounts to the US and its allies using such fear as a weapon to disarm others and to prevent sovereign states from exercising their rights.

Such a dynamic is a blank cheque for powers to bully and oppress others.
