The choice is ‘yours’: Iran or Israel?

We are probably the only ones who did not understand the impact of Iran’s ‘war delegation’ Turkey visit…

Because this visit, which happened after some decades and sent messages with its participants and duration, is interpreted outside as “The Middle East geopolitics is witnessing a tectonic transition with the emergence of the Turkey-Iran axis which was never expected.”…

There are and will be some who are unhappy about this at home and abroad…

The first concrete example is the meeting that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu held with Putin in Sochi, Russia…

The first topic of the meeting was Syria and Iran’s presence in Syria. Because the Israeli Prime Minister went there to learn if Russian support was behind this likely axis which could affect the entire Middle East.

We must read Netanyahu well: “I think Iran’s attempts in the region threatens not only Israel but also the Middle East and, even, the entire world security. Iran is taking steps not only to seize control of Syria but Iraq as well. If necessary, we can conduct a military operation on our own to ensure our security.”

That is why, we can figure out that Tel Aviv went too far to “warn” Russia not to cross the red lines last Wednesday! (“Netanyahu to warn Putin not to cross red lines,” Aug. 22, Jerusalem Post). It is possible to open many parenthesis such as the share of the power struggles in the U.S. in this warning, and Netanyahu visiting Putin after meeting Trump. After the meeting, he met up with his son-in-law! We are not going to divert the topic and talk about this.)

In short, Israel is disturbed by Iran’s presence in Syria and Iraq, and even more disturbed by Turkey’s presence. Because this corridor causes an air current…

US DEFENSE SECRETARY WAS SHOWN THE S-400s!

At the same time, the U.S. Defense Secretary and James Mattis, who is the new partner of the power at the White House, visited Turkey connecting from Irbil.

The content was reflected in the press to a degree, and the discomfort stemming from the relations between the U.S. and PYD/YPG was mentioned, and pictures of the antitank missiles captured from PKK by the security forces were shown to the secretary! 

Even bigger cards were revealed as well. The secretary visited on August 23. These are the “welcome” news: “A S400 battery to be stationed in Ankara can keep the whole of Turkey under control,” Aug. 22, Hürriyet news. Russian Sputnik interpreted this news as “stationing an S400 in Istanbul and Ankara is against NATO.” “The S400 process is complete,” Aug. 23, Yeni Şafak news. And we can also add this news: “Qatar to buy S-400s as well,” Aug. 24, Vatan news.

Lastly, another reason for Mattis’s visit was his curiosity on the Moscow- Ankara-Tehran triangle!

RUSSIA-TURKEY-IRAN: WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

There is a convergence between Turkey and Iran to prevent the formation of a strong independent corridor in Iraq and Syria. The line of the contract written in invisible ink shows that there is an agreement regarding the guardians of the corridor!

The suspicions that the U.S. and Israel accelerated the corridor project are apparently also mutually shared. When the referendum planned to be held in Northern Iraq is added to this…

If … Tehran proves itself trustworthy this time, the ground of Turkey-Iran axis becomes so much wider. Also, Russia cooperates with both countries in many matters.

The question that the West is afraid of is: “Is a comprehensive military-economic cooperation between Turkey and Iran coming to light under the Russian umbrella in Syria?”

The Russia-Turkey-Iran triangle has an impact to affect the entire power dynamics in the Middle East beyond the Syrian problem. Whether it turns out good or bad is a matter of another discussion, but there are many who are disturbed by this potential…

THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE: TURKEY HAS LEFT LONG AGO, IT IS DRAGGING THE MIDDLE EAST TOO…

If the purpose of the U.S. is to seize oil fields located next to Raqqa to try to ensure economic feasibility of  a puppet Kurdistan, the repercussions of this trap coming from a friend are many…

Ten days ago, Russian, Turkish and Iranian companies signed an agreement valued at $7 billion to extract oil and natural gas in Iran. As of next month, Russia will buy 100,000 barrels of oil from Iran on a daily basis and will pay in products valued at $45 billion. We can also especially add the Turkish Stream project which has been accelerated…

Relations among Russia, Turkey and Iran have been unsteady throughout history. These three countries are firstly trying to overcome this legacy with an economic cooperation. Regional security comes next and it is obvious that they are shareholders in this matter. All three have common interests in opposing the Western hegemony in the Middle East. We cannot describe this issue as “choosing a strategic partner.” This is a special case. And the one responsible is the West itself. Not because we are shown little affection. We are not in need of it. It is because they blatantly display enmity…

This is because the convergence between Turkey and Russia is the biggest nightmare of the U.S. Not because it thinks “I am losing Ankara.” It was long ago that the Turkish public left. It is because it is losing the Middle East and even the Great Middle East…

Let’s take note about an incident or two kept in the background, and you decide if they are suitable for the flow of life. Firstly, “Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif: Iran, Saudi Arabia to exchange diplomatic visits,” Aug. 23. Secondly, “U.S. freezes its military aid to Egypt. Egypt’s Foreign Minister canceled his meeting with Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner,” Aug. 23.

Finally…

No matter what you do, don’t consider the “yours” in the headline as yourself. Because neither of those are our choice!
