When attempting to evaluate the legitimacy of the ongoing uprising in Turkey, there are a lot of factors to consider and the view from the outside is just as cloudy and fogged as it is on the streets right now. Only, our eyes aren’t burning.
Analysts are quick to pass judgement one way or the other, to say it’s legit or it’s not, based on an incomplete assessment of the facts on the ground. Be especially careful of those claiming this is a legitimate uprising of the people and Egypt was not… the first Egyptian uprising in Tahrir Sq. that is. Be especially weary if they claim the new uprising in Egypt is legit as well.
More than likely what we are seeing in Turkey is a bit of both. Think about it. Terrorist attacks in Turkey by our contractors was designed to ferment destabilization in Turkey as well as global hostility toward the Assad regime. Well, fact is, it turns out that our mercenary contractors were the ones who did it and we only know that because Turkey allowed to truth to come out. That certainly didn’t help our NATO destabilization plans, did it?
Then, to add insult to injury, Turkish forces arrested even more of our terrorist contractors a week ago, with sarin gas. Apparently they were planning an attack inside Turkey. That really turned the tide as far as popular opinion of our terrorism in Syria was concerned… but don’t forget who caught them and exposed it… the Turks.
Now, suddenly, the people rise up? CBS “news” refers to Erdogan as “a dictator”?
How about this news story that died on arrival a couple last week:
“Seeking a peaceful solution for the Syrian crisis would be impossible in the absence of Iran and Russia, said the Turkey’s president on his way back from Turkmenistan during a press conference in response to a question on how the Syrian crisis can come to an end…
… Earlier this month, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Araqchi announced that Tehran is likely to take part in the Geneva II Conference on Syria if the co-hosts, the US and Russia, invite it to the international gathering.
“If the Geneva II Conference is held and if Iran is invited, we will study our presence with a positive view,” Araqchi said.
Araqchi underlined that Iran expects the Geneva II conference to find a solution acceptable to the Syrian people, and said, “Comprehensiveness is a necessity for the success of this conference, meaning that all the people who are influential in Syria and can help to the settlement of this crisis should take part in that meeting in a bid to guarantee its success.”” FARS
If Turkey supports the inclusion of Iran to the Geneva II conference, NATO’s little regime change and neoliberalization operation in Syria is doomed. Turkey is a big player in the Middle East. Their support can truly shift the power structure.
So let’s recap -
- car bombing investigation reveals our mercenaries did it.
- our mercenaries caught red-handed with sarin gas, Obama’s “red line game changer” in the making
- Turkey at least appears to support the inclusion of Russia and Iran in next round of talks on Syria.
And suddenly, uprising.
Let’s also not forget that this dramatic action takes a lot of attention away from some rather embarrassing developments for us and the Brits and the Israelis at this time. With Obama’s problems with the IRS and the Justice Department and the lies surrounding Benghazi, the timing of this certainly doesn’t hurt him.
The protest over the privatization of the park was legit. There’s no question of that. And the brutal reaction by the authorities is a clear sign that Erdogan is desperate. But here is a good question, why did the authorities choose to move on those protesters when they did? Is the shopping mall so important as to risk igniting a fire across Turkey as such a delicate time as this? There had already been protests, larger protests last week. Those had died down a bit and this senseless move rekindled it.
How important is a new shopping mall anyway?
Is it possible that someone outside the Erdogan administration gave that order? Is it possible they had “revolutionaries” ready and waiting like they do in most Middle Eastern countries? And is it possible that they took advantage of the real reactions from the protesters in the park to launch another of their color revolutions in light of what is happening in Turkey with respect to Syria?
Either way you look at it, this is the very destabilization of the Turkish society that our mercenaries were trying to achieve through their car bombings and the attempted sarin gas attack. In essence, they are getting exactly what they wanted.
The question becomes, who ends up in charge? It’s possible that Erdogan is still in bed with the architects of this “uprising”, using it as an excuse to crack down on the society and close it even further in the line of Saudi Arabia or Jordan or Qatar for instance.
It’s also possible that the people of Turkey have simply had enough and all of this is just coincidental timing, though given how badly the psyop in Syria is failing, and what is at stake with such a public loss, I doubt that very much.
And it’s also possible that hordes of “color revolutionaries” were set in place, like we did in Georgia, Iran and Russia recently, ready to leap into action when the protesters in the park were pounced on.
The timing is critical to understanding what this is as is the way it is portrayed in the MSM.
