Turkish and American turmoil in light of the failure in Syria

The United States and Turkey escalated their direct interference in Syria through the enhancement of the military operations rooms, while the statements issued following the bilateral meetings that were recently held hinted to the fact that a new chapter of the attack on Syria is currently being launched.
- Firstly, the American-Turkish talks followed major defeats which afflicted the terrorist gangs in the face of the Syrian army in Aleppo among other Syrian areas that are witnessing troubles and in which terrorist gangs hosting death squads, NATO’s agents and the mercenaries of the Turkish-Gulf alliance are present. The actual talk during this meeting tackled the ways to enhance the smuggling of weapons and funds to Syria and develop the existing special and coded communication networks between the operations rooms in Turkey and the gangs of terrorism and death on Syrian soil, in order to implement the plans aiming at gathering, organizing, structuring and mobilizing the armed terrorist groups. This would be done in accordance with the satellite images and the information provided by the spies and mercenaries inside the Syrian territories in regard to the combat and logistic actions of the Syrian army, which continue to be a mystery puzzling the Western, Gulf and Turkish intelligence apparatuses in light of the outcome of the Damascus and Aleppo battles.
- Secondly, the loud statements issued by the American and Turkish officials in regard to the course of events in Syria completely contradict the statements heard in the backstage. Indeed, Arab officials quoted senior officials in Washington and Ankara as saying that the idea of toppling President Bashar al-Assad, of negotiating over the so-called conditions for a political transition of power and the attempts to sustain the war being launched by the death squads inside Syria, are being obstructed by solid walls in Syria, and by the Russian-Chinese positions. On the other hand, the Syrian army’s strength and cohesion, as well as the popular rallying around it, are continuously being confirmed, in the face of shameful scandals affecting the practices of the armed gangs receiving support from the West and the Turkish-Gulf alliance. This is causing the escalation of popular disgruntlement towards the theft, the collaboration and the terrorism prevailing over the behavior of the armed Syrian opposition groups, whether the ones operating domestically and including elements with several nationalities, or their political fronts abroad. This reality has started to constitute a serious obstacle in the face of the plan aiming at destroying the Syrian state, considering that the tools of this plan on the ground are murderers and Takfiris who are rejected by the vast majority of the Syrian people and who are, abroad, agents and mercenaries trading with the Syrian people’s blood. In the meantime, the Syrian state is advancing its national cause in defending Syria’s independence, the freedom of its people and the development of its state through reconciliation and dialogue. And it has won an important round in the political and media battle at that level.
- Thirdly, while the states involved in the war on Syria are trying to lift the morale of the terrorist gangs through lies about wide scale attacks being launched by these gangs in this or that part of the country, the Syrian official authorities did not respond to these claims, considering that those knowledgeable about the situation on the field among foreign journalists such as Robert Fisk – who exposed the structure of the gangs collaborating with the West – are confirming that the Syrian armed forces are carrying out comprehensive field operations to cleanse the country of terrorist groups and are targeting all their dens and strongholds based on well-studied plans. In the meantime, these troops are being embraced by those wishing to get rid of the turmoil and the threats affecting their security, lives and livelihood, which is why the citizens have started to reveal the locations of these dens and terrorist cells or carry weapons to fight alongside the army. This has been a key phenomenon affecting the events during the last two months.
- Fourthly, the repercussions of the involvement of the government of Ottoman illusion in Syria have gradually started to show during the last two weeks. Indeed, the sectarian strife which Erdogan wanted to export to Syria through the promotion of the idea of civil war and the use of a purely sectarian rhetoric, is now threatening Turkish stability. Hence, Erdogan is currently the object of fierce political campaigns against the backdrop of his extremist sectarian rhetoric. To the majority of the Turkish people, he has become a headline for turmoil and division inside turkey. As to the Kurdish file which was detonated by Erdogan’s foolishness, its field and military repercussions have become an open and bleeding wound inside Turkey, which is rendering the government of Ottoman illusion a security and political burden on Turkish stability due to its involvement in Syria, after it had become an economic burden when it undermined numerous commercial opportunities due to its hostility towards the Syrian state, thus paralyzing industrial and commercial facilities, blocking transit and causing the increase of its cost for the Turkish producers.
Amid this climate, the idea of a buffer zone or safe corridors which had previously pleased Erdogan, transformed into a mirage before the Syrian determination to deal with any violation affecting the country’s sovereignty and border as being a hostile act prompting a Syrian response. At this level, the American planners fear the eruption of a major regional war that would jeopardize Israel’s existence. In this context, The Guardian revealed the failure of the Turkish-American talks to reach a palpable decision in regard to this issue, and featured an American warning to Turkey against the threat of any adventure and Washington’s rejection of the establishment of buffer zones or safe corridors. The Turkish-American-Western-Gulf involvement in the global war on Syria is depleting their capabilities and margins of maneuver, while the activation sought by Washington and Ankara is a mere desperate attempt whose failure will be seen in the next few months.

News analysis: Erdogan and Turkey

Erdogan achieved rapprochement with the Turkish people after years of cultural, political, security and economic concerns, while carrying promises related to the move towards the safety shores. Moreover, he was able —under an Islamic headline— to compensate for the lost cultural identity. And through his openness vis-à-vis the Islamic and Arab worlds, the services and tourism sectors were revived and security and political wellbeing was instated amid promises to end the conflicts in Turkey’s surrounding and seek a political solution for the Kurdish issue.
Throughout a year of public Turkish interference in the Syrian crisis, the concerns are returning among the Turks, while reports issued by the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce reveal the troubles endured by the economy and the retreat caused by the obstruction of the transit lines which all go through the Syrian border.
Within a year, Turkey lost its image as the defender of the primary cause of the Arabs and Muslims, i.e. the Palestinian cause, and rushed towards fierce tensions with three among its most important neighbors, i.e. Syria, Iraq and Iran, which are neighbors and economic resources.
More importantly, the Turks are extremely concerned about the security issue following the resumption of the Kurdistan Workers Party’s operations —in a way similar to what was witnessed in the 80s and 90s of last century— but also about their army’s and cities’ involvement in a conflict with Syria, that might transform into mutual and destructive bombing targeting the main cities.
Erdogan is ill and pale, and his departure from power might constitute an opportunity for the Turkish people to regain their peace of mind. Some Turks are saying that when Syria discovered that the cost of the PKK’s presence on its soil was too much to bear for its people, it relinquished it despite the alliance between the two. They are thus assuring that Turkey should draw the lesson, considering that the cost of hosting militias dubbed the Syrian opposition is too much to bear for the Turkish people. So, does Erdogan lack the courage to ask them to leave? Or is he under the control of Washington’s orders and the millions coming from the Gulf?
