If you could, you would fetter Turkey to the U.S. You offer it up as hostage to the U.S. You would request U.S. colony governors for Anatolian territory. You would call the American army to Istanbul’s streets. You would want U.S. aircraft to hover in Turkish skies.
If you could, you would have the U.S. assign its new President Joe Biden from Washington to Ankara. You would turn the country into a “front,” a “bridge,” a “garrison” once again. You would re-establish tutelage, and demand a mandate government all over again.
If you could, you would have the Seljuks, the Ottomans, the Republic of Turkey, the continuity of all these states, this nation’s political legacy, history-making and geography-building power forgotten; you would destroy this people’s memory, wear out their identities, and enslave them.
If you could, you would drive this nation through economic difficulties, poverty, terrorism, primitivity, so it would lose its self-esteem again and beg for a million dollars to pay salaries.
If you could, you would shape a Turkey whose cities are struck by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), whose borders are attacked, with new Sevres maps open for discussion, with formulas to shrink Anatolia being promoted like a “national issue,” and with the plan to downsize Turkey being presented as a national cause and as a road map for terrorist states under the name of “internal peace.”
Terror used to come from Iraq and thwarted. Attacks were launched from Syria and they were stopped. Our cities were stained in blood and it was stopped. A terror corridor, a siege map spanning the Iranian border and the Mediterranean was being designed and it was destroyed.
They tried to drown Turkey in the East Mediterranean but it blew up in their faces. All their plans in the Aegean blew up in their faces. Now we are receiving good news of oil and natural gas from the East Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
Now our fleets are everywhere in the Mediterranean. They are in the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf. They will soon be in the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic.
If you could, you would stop all this. You would render Turkey a pitiful country afraid of its own shadow once again; a country that is controlled from Brussels, London, Berlin, and Washington.
The U.S., Europe, and Israel are behind terrorism, internal conflict plans, operations to isolate Turkey in the region, and siege attempts. Yet, you see Turkey as the enemy and them as allies. You tried to stop Turkey and exalt them.
You had no shame. You never felt disgrace or dishonor. You praised the U.S. and Europe, and backed the coup plotters of the Middle East. You even cooperated with terrorist organizations. You were perturbed by this country’s national identity, sentiments, and rise.
New U.S. President Biden said, “We are going to support the opposition and remove Erdoğan.” You grew excited, filled with hope, and rubbed your hands together in anticipation. When Biden was elected, you were the first to congratulate him, even before his presidency was made official. You competed to “receive orders.” You disgracefully pleaded “to be seen, to be supported and brought to power.”
You pinned your hopes on a U.S. president who is trying to topple your country’s president. You could not say, “What is it to you, why does it concern you, who do you think you are.” You could not say, “This is Turkey, it decides its own future.”
They broke out the Gezi Park uprising, and you supported them. They were the ones who perpetrated the Dec. 17-25 intervention, and you supported them. They openly attacked Turkey on July 15, 2016; they attempted to invade the country, bombed this country’s Parliament, attempted an assassination on the country’s president in Marmaris, and you supported them.
What are you going to do now? What sort of coup are you going to attempt in collaboration with the U.S., Israel, and Europe? You are going to work with the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ), and the PKK. But who else are you going to call as partners?
Are you aware that you are fighting against Turkey, that you built partnerships with Turkey’s enemies? What you are seeking and pursuing is not an election, not a democracy but a form of invasion. Do you not understand?
Biden cannot help you. The U.S. cannot help you. Even if it could, it would fail. Your plans to beat Turkey with the U.S. stick would go down the drain. You will be burdened with your treachery. You will be lost among the wrong pages of history. And you deserve it; you will be remembered by the detriment you caused Turkey.
The U.S. was not even able to reveal election results for days. It no longer has the power to change regimes, assign power, and design internal policies. It is striving to keep its own system standing; it is struggling within. It will have no benefit to you.
A new world order has been established, new powers have emerged, the world’s order has changed, the power map has changed, a map of rising and collapsing countries has developed, and you cannot interpret even this.
Those who lean on the U.S. will lose. Those who lean on Israel, Europe, and Arab regimes will lose. Those who lean on Turkey, on this country, this nation, its rich history, its political legacy will win; they are the ones soaring.
Today, Shusha’s liberation, Azerbaijan and Turkey’s victories in the Caucasus are being discussed. Turkey’s regional rise from Libya to Somalia, from Syria to Iraq are being discussed. “Turkey’s axis” is being discussed in the world now. No country can do anything against such a power anymore.
Those who planned the July 15 coup attempt also planned the “Nation Alliance.” They gathered unrelated political parties under a single roof. They made them embrace terrorist organizations. A new pro-mandate, pro-tutelage front was established. It includes the Republican People’s Party (CHP), the PKK, the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP-C), the “conservative opposition,” and the FETÖ influence groups that appear as nationalists.
This country never adopted a stance in support of Turkey with respect to national matters. An intervention was made in Syria against the terror corridor, and they opposed.An intervention was launched in Iraq to stop terrorism, and they opposed. A terror baron like Khalifa Haftar was defeated in Libya, and they opposed. The three-decade-long occupation in Karabakh is being ended, and they are nowhere to be seen. They even pinned their hopes on French President Emmanuel Macron in the East Mediterranean.
Their anger towards Erdoğan turned into hostility towards Turkey. Why are the U.S. and Europe angry with Erdoğan? Why do they want to remove him from power? The truth is that he saved Turkey from their influence; he started a new march, he pioneered a revolution, he started the rising period after the founding of the Republic, and built a great and powerful Turkey.
The West is approaching us with a new version of the Crusade Wars. So, why are you with them? You were pro-state, pro-nationalism, you were conservative/Islamist; now why are you on the same front as those who call themselves the Crusaders? Why are you raining bullets down on Turkey from their fighting positions?
They are saying, “If we oust Erdoğan, we can stop Turkey.” They are striving to destroy Turkey. So, why are you attacking Turkey? Why are you on the same front as those attacking Turkey and not on “Turkey’s front”? Why are you dragging this country down while it is rising?
Your ambitions and fury have blinded you. You have turned into useful structures. Hence, they are taking full advantage of this. Just as they used FETÖ and the PKK, now they are trying to use you. But you are more than willing.
This was the only reason CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu congratulated Biden early. It was a, “Task us, see us, support us” message. It was a congratulation extended on behalf of that entire front. It was a declaration of loyalty.
The July 15 coup attempt changed Turkey and the region’s destiny and history. There is no turning back. Regardless of to whom you appeal, with whom you partner up, whom you plead help from, nothing like this will ever happen again.
Do your worst! Even Biden cannot save you.
Turkey’s axis is going to change the region. You will see very soon.
