Ottoman Turks - WWI to Now



Let’s go back to the eighteen hundreds and take a look at Middle Eastern geography. When the Ottoman Empire started its decline, Zionism dreams began coming into the existence, including the greater Middle East project to enlarge the borders of the Israel. Although Israel came into existence in the nineteen hundreds, the plan was prepared long before that. After the birth of Israel and even with its sixty years of struggle with Arab nations, Israel stood up and persevered with the help of America and the West. Now it is time to enlarge the borders of Israel.



In today’s Middle East, Iraq is divided and Syria is almost gone. All of these conflicts are for the greater Israeli project. What is the problem? It is the country of Turkey. Turkey is curtailing this Israeli expansion. So what should America and Europe do? Attack Turkey in all fronts. How? By creating the PKK, Daesh, and other terrorist groups. These groups are attacking Turkey from both the inside and the outside. This attacks are as important as attacking Iraq.



After the end of cold war Turkey started to become powerful in economy, infrastructure, and self-sufficiency. It even went further and began to develop the South Eastern Anatolian project that could potentially have fed half of the world. Turkey tied to leave the Atlantic orbit and align itself with the world orbit.



What happened? America and the West created the PKK to stop this project and they have succeeded.



These are the games that America and Europe have played. In Iraq and Syria they have pretty much succeeded, but Turkey is still the problem for the Greater Middle Eastern project. America has succeeded in weakening the Turkish Armed Forces by fabricating false evidence that TSK (Turkish Armed Forces) planned a coup against the AKP government and orchestrating the July 2015 failed coup. 247 high ranking generals were tried and jailed for over three years.



What America and the West thought was that by weakening the Turkish Armed Forces, it should have been easy to divide Turkey. What they failed to realize is that the entire Turkish nation of 80 million are all military. In other words, the entire country is one military, unified by common purpose.



The latest development is Turkey’s invading Syria, first with the Euphrates Shield and then the Olive Branch operation. These invasions have halted the greater Israeli ME project.

 

Let’s look at the recent history of Turkey. Beginning in the 1960’s, the left/right problems in Turkey lasted fifteen years. Then came the PKK separation tactics. The purpose was to divide Turkey. The way they did this was to say, “You Turks don’t have democracy,” claiming that the Kurds and other ethnic groups in Turkey don’t have minority rights.



Therefore the West encouraged the uprising of the Asala Armenian terror groups, who assassinated 45 Turkish diplomats and ambassadors. Then Asala and PKK terror groups joined together resulting in four decades of struggle in with 40,000 Kurdish origin Turkish citizens have been killed.



Let’s look at the facts. We’ve had a Kurdish president, Ozal. We’ve had Kurdish generals, judges, policemen, parliamentary deputies, foreign ministers, and major business owners. Kurds have the same rights as the Turks, Lazez, Caucasians, Arabs, Bosnians, Christians, Jews and Armenians.



It is ludicrous to accuse Turkey of not giving rights to minorities.



It was the same blame during the foundation of the Republic of Turkey. How? Ataturk encountered internal struggles with the Seyhs, religious clerics, some of whom were credible and some self-claimed. These clerics were supposedly fighting Kemalizm. In fact they were fighting against formation of the Republic with the direction of the West.



In addition, the British installed many spies all over Anatolia, roaming the countryside dressed in burkas. That is why Ataturk outlawed burkas. Finally, Ataturk succeeded in forming the new Turkey. After WWII, a new threat come to an existence. The Cold War. Turkey joined NATO. What that meant was from 1950s until 2000, Turkey was being managed by NATO and America.



When AKP came to power, it was a different scenario. After the end of Cold War, Turkey tried to conduct its foreign policy independent of NATO. Turkey has become the 17th largest economy of the world. In other words, Turkey is now becoming powerful, and America, Europe, and NATO have all started to play the old imperialist games.



To stop Turkey, they internally arranged internally an organization headed by Fatiullah Gulen, whose members are well established in powerful places in government. The PKK was formed to reduce Turkey and stop Turkish power in the region. In addition, the 2015 coup, orchestrated by the CIA, was another attempt to stop Turkey’s becoming a major power. Since 1960s Turkey spent billions for fighting PKK, even in that position Turkey managed to become 17th economy in the world.



Personally, I don’t particularly care for Erdogan and his corruptions, but Erdogan stands up against the super powers and tries to lead a new Turkey. So the West directs all of its energies to overthrow Erdogan, by supporting the other parties. Erdogan may be corrupt, and undemocratic, and I don’t want to argue about that. The point is, if it was not Erdogan or somebody else, the same game would have been played by the West.



Another point I want to make is how history repeats itself. During WWI, Turkey ordered and paid for a warship from Britain. But the Brits did not honor their agreement and the ship was never delivered. Isn’t it the same scenario with America? Turkey paid for several F-35 jets, but now Trump is considering not delivering. All because America can’t manage Turkey anymore.



Because Turkey is no longer under the influence of the West and is following an independent foreign policy, the geography of the area becomes independent. Who leads this Turkey? President Erdogan. Just as Ataturk did, despite the fact that the Brits tried unsuccessfully three times to assassinate him and encouraged the clerics to uprise within the country.



Turkey is saying to America and the West, “You no longer can plan the borders of Middle East.”



As Erdogan becomes a more undemocratic dictator, turning the country to a more religious direction instead of a secular one, the West is using any excuse it can to over throw Erdogan’s government. The irony is that even if they overthrow Erdogan and another party succeeds in taking power, that leader would do the same thing as Erdogan, hopefully without corruption.



To recap, despite the fact the Ottoman Empire disintegrated with the help of Britain, France and Italy, the Turks managed to form the Republic of Turkey under the leadership of Ataturk. The West was unable to destroy the Turks completely.



Now that Turkey has saved itself from total destruction, it wants to be independent of the West. This is the struggle Turkey is facing today. Turkey must win this struggle against the West, otherwise, if the West wins this game, the nation of Turks will end. If we win then America and the West will no longer be the major player in the Middle East.
