Whose Side is Turkey On?

As per Bloomberg:
"On Thursday a court in Istanbul ordered that Cumhuriyet newspaper’s editor-in-chief Can Dundar, and Erdem Gul, the Ankara bureau chief, be jailed pending trial on charges of political and military espionage. Their crime: publishing images which allege to show Turkey’s intelligence agency shipping weapons to Syria.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan dismissed the allegations as baseless this week: "Those trucks were trucks carrying aid to our Bayirbucak Turkmen," he said, referring to a Turkic tribe backed by Turkey that’s resident in northern Syria, where civil war has been raging for four years. 

As to whether the trucks were carrying arms: "So what if they were, so what if they weren’t?" he said."
With friends like these who needs enemies?

USA Gives ISIS 45 Minute Warning

Evidently the USA is now playing a "gentleman's war" when it comes to ISIS, as it gave ISIS 45 minutes warning that the USA was going to bomb its oil trucks!

An "interesting" strategy!

Turkey Shoots Down Russian Fighter Jet

The FT reports that the Turkish Air Force shot down a Russian plane on Tuesday, according to a Turkish military official who said the aircraft violated Turkish airspace, “despite repeated warnings”.

Russia’s defence ministry on Tuesday confirmed that one of its jets had been shot down, but insisted it had not strayed into Turkish airspace.

“Today on the territory of Syria, presumably as a result of fire from the ground, a Russian Su-24 plane crashed in the Syrian Arabic Republic,” the defence ministry said in a statement quoted by Russian news wires. “The plane was at an altitude of 6,000 metres. The fate of the pilots is being confirmed. According to preliminary data, the pilots managed to eject.”

It added that the plane was “exclusively over Syrian territory throughout its entire flight”. “This is recorded by objective controls.”

Allegedly Turkey is fighting ISIS as well. However, the reality is that it is using its involvement in the Syrian conflict to further its military actions against the PKK with the tacit support of the USA.

As to its true intentions towards ISIS, the mainstream media may care to investigate and report on those senior Turkish officials who allegedly have links with ISIS and Turkey's involvement with the purchase of crude oil supplied by ISIS.

We are not all in this together by any manner or means!

HRH Completely Misses The Point on Syria

As per Reuters:
"Asked in the interview, which Sky said was filmed three weeks ago, whether there was direct link between climate change, conflict and terrorism, Charles said: "Absolutely.""
HRH should listen to what US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has to say on the subject.

The Origins of The "Strategic Asset" AKA ISIS

Ever wondered where ISIS came from?

Wonder no more, courtesy of Zerohedge:
"Two weeks ago, courtesy of the investigative work of Nafeez Ahmed whose deep dig through a recently declassified and formertly Pentagon documents released earlier by Judicial Watch FOIA, we learned that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad. In his words: "According to the newly declassified US document, the Pentagon foresaw the likely rise of the ‘Islamic State’ as a direct consequence of the strategy, but described this outcome as a strategic opportunity to “isolate the Syrian regime.

Now, in a follow up piece to his stunning original investigative report titled "Secret Pentagon report reveals West saw ISIS as strategic asset Anti-ISIS coalition knowingly sponsored violent extremists to ‘isolate’ Assad, rollback ‘Shia expansion", Nafeez Ahmed reveals that according to leading American and British intelligence experts, the previously declassified Pentagon report confirms that the West accelerated support to extremist rebels in Syria, despite knowing full well the strategy would pave the way for the emergence of the ‘Islamic State’ (ISIS)."
Now we know!
