I am sure the title, “Will it be bloody or not” is going to disturb everybody. But be a little patient and read all the way to the end.
Everything from the invasion of Iraq to the Syrian war, from the East Mediterranean crisis to excessive armament in the Aegean, from Libya’s continental shelf case to the U.S. military buildup aimed at Balkan countries, from the S-400 crisis to the defense embargo imposed on our country by the U.S. and Europe, from the economic attacks to the domestic defaming campaign targeting everybody trying to resist all this, is all being carried out within the context of “stopping Turkey.”
The Syrian war opened “Pandora’s box” for Turkey. It led to far direr results than the invasion of Iraq. It is true, the project aimed at detaching Iraq from Baghdad has largely been implemented. There is almost no direct border left between Turkey and Iraq. A 50- to 60-kilometer border including Ovaköy is in question, and that is under the control of the Northern Iraq administration and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
They opened a hundreds-of-kilometers-long ‘Turkey front’ from the Iranian border to the East Mediterranean
However, the Syrian war ended with the opening of a hundreds-of-kilometers-long “Turkey front” from the Mediterranean to the Iranian border. The U.S. invading north Syria, deploying the PKK in this area, changing the area’s demographic structure, using Daesh in the same area as a Trojan horse, trying to prevent Turkey’s Afrin and Euphrates Shield operations, so far preventing the intervention on the east of the Euphrates, all promises made concerning Manbij being unkept, making military buildup enough for armies, much beyond support to a terrorist organization, is indication that all those preparations are made for Turkey.
In addition to all this, terrifying anti-Turkey sentiment has been spread in the Arab world through Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). These two countries, along with Egypt, are, in the north of Syria, on the side of whoever is against Turkey. The U.S., Israel and these countries are building a terrifying wall between Turkey and the Arab world. This is the real aim of the terror corridor, the map operations in the north of Syria – to completely close off the south of Turkey.
The second stage of siege has been launched: This is graver than the first two threats
The division on Iraqi and Syrian territories, the map operations, the real reasons behind the intervention are completely about Turkey and they all complement one another.
The intervention that came from Iraq to Syria has travelled further West now and expanded to the East Mediterranean, going on to the second stage. The project aimed at “closing off the south” is being widespread. Turkey is literally being surrounded, besieged. A threat greater than the first two threats is being formed against our country. The intervention from our neighbors’ lands has directly reached the intervention stage. Had the Afrin intervention not been realized, the territory of Hatay was going to be opened to discussion.
Now, the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus is being directly targeted. Turkey is being cornered in the East Mediterranean. This state of “cornering” is going to further spread to the West. The military drills around Crete and the Aegean islands, the natural gas deals in the East Mediterranean, arming the Aegean islands, deals between the U.S. and Greece aimed at “watching and monitoring Turkey,” and the partnerships of almost all countries targeting Turkey all indicate a new and very dangerous era.
Turkey will break this siege. Strong geopolitical intervention is essential.
Turkey is trying to overcome all this and break the siege. It is now revealed how great a geopolitical move the 1974 Cyprus Peace Operation was. The Afrin and Euphrates Shied operations had nothing to do with terrorism, they were each a geopolitical touch. The Yavuz and Fatih drillships deploying to the Mediterranean was a very powerful challenge. The Mavi Vatan (Blue Homeland) military drill and our fleet’s state of alarm in the Mediterranean is within this context.
Turkey is fighting for the very same thing in Libya today. We look and see that the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ) and PKK groups are publishing pictures and passports of Turkish military experts in Libya. This is one of the most dramatic examples of the sort of enemy alliance we are fighting against. This is an indication that July 15, 2016 was not a coup attempt but rather an invasion attempt, an attempt at turning Turkey into Syria. Our country’s extraordinary defense preparations are all in this context.
‘Whatever the cost, even if it means suicide’
The intervention on the east of the Euphrates is, in this sense, vital for Turkey. This was the reason why I have been saying for the last two years, “Whatever it costs, even if it means suicide.” This issue has nothing to do with the PKK and Kurdish issue. What is happening in Syria has nothing to do with its people. The issue in the East Mediterranean is not limited to natural gas alone. There is a project aimed at cornering Turkey, followed by the launch of a deadly attack against it.
In such an atmosphere, Turkey is trying to keep the Ukraine, Russia, Iran line open. If you notice, both the sieging countries and their extensions within are carrying out heavy attacks aimed at sabotaging Turkish-Russian relations. The S-400 crisis is an example to this. We found out later through whom the Russian aircraft was downed, and that the aim behind it was to isolate Turkey.
Those wanting a ‘new front’ became Erdoğan enemies.
I notice that almost everybody who mobilized to break out the Syrian war are now enemies of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. It would be wise to consider the attacks targeting him, his family, those standing beside him, and also those who support him but leave once the fight on the national axis gains strength.
They are all in very close relations with those sieging Turkey. Perhaps they are being unleashed on the ground for a new front to be opened in the Mediterranean. Every development from the discourse used for new political preparations to media formations, from the “conservative opposition” to the political front established within, correspond with this “siege.”
‘Is it going to be bloody or not?’
There is no political competition whatsoever in Turkey. A foreign intervention is building the fronts within. The late Necmettin Erbakan’s “Is it going to be bloody or not?” question was heavily discussed. It was twisted from the true context and used against him.
He knew that Turkey was putting up a national struggle, that it was seeking its own axis, and expecting a “multinational intervention” aimed at this search. This is what he wanted to explain but could not.
Like February 28, he was toppled with a “bloodless” foreign intervention. The foreign intervention on Erdoğan was a “bloody” one, such as July 15. Neither of them were coups but foreign interventions.
Preparations for intervention, both from abroad and within.
There is currently a siege project being implemented from the Iranian border to the Mediterranean and the Balkans. Fronts of the same siege are being built domestically as well. Preparations for a new and graver intervention are being made both overseas and from within the country.
My humble suggestion is that this truth is told to everybody in every part of Anatolia, that our people’s nerve ends are activated, and resistance islands are built – not only in Anatolia, but wherever Turkey is able to reach, in every corner of the region.
This is such a great showdown that mercy will not be shown to anybody. Considering it from this aspect, it is possible to see that the greatest showdown is approaching. Despite those gambling over the public perception, Turkey will overcome this biggest showdown as well, and all those seeking a future in the opposite front will be expelled from history.
