attached images circulating in Turkey… it’s theatre, macabre theatre
and anyone who does not deem Erdogan capable of such theatrics does
not appreciate the full spectrum of his skills…. he is ruthless. The
Oscar image is particularly pertinent.
I am not sure how to submit images to the dashboard.
Turks have experience of real coups. I spoke to Istanbul this morning.
It is suggested to me that was a theatrical coup.
Forget the crypto-Jew / Satanist business. It is just business and power.
Erdogan creates theatre. He wants to remove the fundations of Ataturk’s secular republic and create a Caliphate/Otoman style retro system.
Turk friends are sad, they say, “… we are ISIS…”
I tell them so are we! We pay for it too.
The immams were calling from the mosque all night to encourage AKP/religious supporters to the street.
The BBC are clueless; no sense of deeper analysis.
How extraordinary to think, thank goodness Putin is close by to keep tabs on these lunatics… may be he’s playing us too.
It’s theatre. Avoid buying into the fear.
I believe that Turkey today can play a very positive role in a new world that is emerging to replace the world of CIA wars, terror and chaos. Turkey is a geopolitical crossroads which has the possibility to play a very positive role in the emerging Eurasian system of China and Russia, the countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, in building energy and rail infrastructure. By herself, Turkey will be isolated and broken as Ukraine, and by the same people. In a principled economic and political alliance with Russia and China, she can play a pivot role in building a new world free of the debt of the collapsing Dollar System that also included the stagnating Europe. Turkey has a beautiful opportunity to partner with Russia and change the world power balance. It will require a lot of will. But if done in a good open way, Turkey could enjoy prosperity as never before and be a genuine “good neighbor.”
