Hi guys. If you want your daily dose of “hate on Erdogan”, head on over to that stellar news and information site, Prison Planet (over at InfoWhores, they call him a “mafia don” and with a nifty little picture of him next to explosions, they practically suggest he shot down the plane himself)They got all kinds of good stuff for you there. I think neoliberal Zero Hedge also has some fodder for you as well. Then again, so does the New York Times, the Washington Post, Fox News… you get the picture.
Meanwhile over here, there’s an interesting story being run by the neoliberal Gulen movement rag, Today’s Zaman. They claim that Erdogan and the popularly elected new government of Turkey, the Justice and Development Party (AK Party), decided to shoot down a Russian plane in order to “remain in power” and use the super secret whistle-blower “Fuat Avni” as their proof.
“She also quoted statements of Turkish Twitter whistleblower Fuat Avni who claimed in October that the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) government and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan were planning to down a Russian jet to bring Turkey to brink of war with Russia to ultimately keep its power. “This is very interesting,” Zakharova said.” Today’s Zaman
Just the other day, the ruling party in Turkey announced the new government they formed, kicking out the likes of the Gulen movement followers and various neoliberal technocrats favored by the US and the IMF.
They had won a strong majority in the recent election (51%) and were well underway to setting up the government they wanted, absent the ‘debt monsters’ from the neoliberal factions in the country.
So what do they do according to Today’s Zaman and their super secret “whistle-blower”? They decide what they really need then is to attack Turkey’s strong ally Russia and down one of their planes for no apparent reason.
