Barzani-PKK alliance backed by US, Israel to attack Anatolia
The next target of the Barzani and Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) alliance, which divided Iraq and Syria using the U.S. and Israel, is Anatolia. Barzani, who organized a referendum on Sept. 25 for an allegedly independent “Kurdistan” that would in reality be deeply tied to the U.S. and Israel, conducted the “Yes” campaign with maps that portrayed a divided Turkey.Barzani, who had no objection to the Israeli flags waved at rallies and demonstrations, did not oppose Peshmerga forces carrying the Israeli flag.Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) leader Barzani included the Turkish homeland of Kirkuk in his maps of an illegal state, and prepared to make it the capital of so-called Kurdistan. While preparing for a “great Kurdistan,” Barzani is also preparing for a “great Anatolian occupation.”BARZANI-PKK ALLIANCE EYES ANATOLIAThe aims of the process, which is described as the greatest imposition of global powers since the Treaty of Sevres, have become quite clear with the emergence of maps used in the KRG referendum campaign.Barzani’s propaganda maps span from Turkey’s Muş to Sivas, and from Diyarbakır to İskenderun and are titled as the map of “great Kurdistan.”The Barzani-PKK alliance, which included 270,000 square kilometers Turkish territory in their map, aims to occupy Anatolia after Iraq and Syria.The next step of the Barzani-PKK alliance, which seized 34 percent of Iraq and conducted a poll across 110,000 square kilometers of land to declare an illegal state, is to target over 5,000 settlements in Anatolia.BARZANI SPOKE OF THE MAP IN THE ‘90SThe map includes Turkey’s Sivas, Tunceli, Adana, Gaziantep, Elaziğ, Kars, Mardin, Hakkari, Hatay, Bitlis, Şanliurfa, Kahramanmaraş, Muş, Malatya and Erzincan.By establishing a terror corridor, united PKK and Barzani forces aim to unite the KRG northern Iraq with PKK occupied territories in northern Syria and completely disconnect Turkey from the southern geography.The 1450-kilometer-long pirate map from Kirkuk, Iraq, to Lattakia, Syria, was spoken of by Barzani 20 years ago.Kirkuk to be made capital of so-called KurdistanAt the end of the 1990s, Barzani had said that “a Kurdistan that does not open up to the Mediterranean will be born dead.” Now, with the support of Israel and the U.S., he is trying to achieve the goal of a terror corridor that surrounds Turkey and extends from Hakkari to İskenderun.The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States. The PKK has been conducting armed violence in the southeastern part of Turkey since 1984.
