The US government and the Pentagon have been saying for years that the YPG is not an arm of the PKK, that it is not helped. They are even condemning them allegedly at press meetings. However, there are a lot of news and resources on how the weapons sent to the YPG by the US government reached the PKK terrorist organization. These are also verified.
The US government, which also recognizes the PKK as a terrorist organization for many years, is constantly comes the issue over fighting of YPG against ISIS. Of course, let’s not forget that ISIS is an organization produced by the CIA and Mossad, and that we have already learned this with such as the experiment of enlightenment we got, from the people like Noam Chomsky and Edward Snowden.
And a day ago, a new image and information emerged against the US government’s declaration of refusing to provide any assistance to the PKK with this picture:
This picture was taken by journalist Hans Jaap Melissen. At the picture the banner with the photograph of the Ocalan, leader of the PKK terrorist organization at the backround of PYD and SDF groups.
“The Pentagon spokesman White held a press conference in Pentagon with Lieutenant General Frank McKenzie, spokesman for the US Chief of Staff.
AA reporter asked: “The Rakka was rescued with the help local forces which US forces trained and gathered by, and also millions of dollars of taxs of American people. However, the PKK / PYD, which is using the name of YPG or SDF, devoted the Rakka victory to the head of the PKK, another brutal terrorist organization, also accepted the terrorist organization by the United States. To be devoted the rescue of a city taken with the support of the United States from a brutal terrorist organization, to another brutal terrorist organization known as a terrorist organization by Washington, is it acceptable for you?”
White replied the reporter: “We work there with SDF, we support the fight against ISIS, our only commitment is to fight against ISIS and we will continue to do so,”.
Besides, according to the news of Hurriyet newspaper, US Central Command (Centcom), made an explanation as: “We do not approve such images, we do not confirm”.
We already kknow that, US government always like to make discrimination about the terorists, like “The terrorist that I accept as terrorist” and “The terrorist that you accept as terrorist”. But there is big difference even on their thoughts in here. Because according to US governments offical spokesmen words and US government terrorist groups list, PKK is accepted as terrorist group. But when it comes to action, there is nothing against PKK by US government, but always support through the instruments of PKK, even creates new branches of PKK.
Let’s continue on the issue;
The information about the news and the used visuals became even more interesting with the explanation of the photograph made by the own, journalist Hans Jaap Melissen from his twitter account.
Hans Jaap Melissen gave this answer to reply of a follower’s question:
In this tweet, Melissen suggests that there are images of his camera records showing US soldiers dressed like YPG members.
My reaction is: “Wow! US’s Soldiers who dressed like YPG members! When US soldiers gave up to dress like US soldiers?”
After then, it gets even more interesting in his next tweet, that is,
In his tweet Melissen used a describing “Americans dressed like Syrian PKK”.
Also, the issues has become more intresting, because Melissen suggested that,
“Amerikaanse special forces hebben mij vandaag een opname laten wissen, omdat …”
According to newspapers as translated, Melissen said that:
“US Special Forces have made me erase the recording of today, because…”
So, it means that a journalist was forced to delete his records. And the freedom of information of the world public was blocked!
I’ve searched on the net today, and I wanted to see many reactions which came from western leftist media and its writers. I couldn’t find any big reaction, there were just the short news about that.
Where is the freedom of press!
Western leftist media insists (and I think most of them are consciously, I believe this anymore) on what they ignore is that the PKK is a terrorist organization.
Because, although the American government does accept the PKK as a terrorist, as long as the indirect aid it gives to emerges in these forms, it does not come any loud voice from the left western media.
When it comes to reason, they have convinced themselves and the public that they are a kind of freedom fighter of the PKK for years, especially for about 10 years, in the light of the news based on distorted historical facts that they shared too.
For example, while the same left-wing western sources transmits the deceased PKK members were being portrayed as hero at the operations of Turkish armed forces, they did not write that thousands of people, including dozens of teachers, dozens of workers, dozens of civilians including children have been killed by PKK for more than two decades, inside the borders of Turkey; and they still do not write. And many of these people killed by the PKK are Turkey republic citizens of Kurdish origin (I never like to write anything about people’s ethnics, but I have to do now, unfortunatelly).
What the Western left media does not understand is,
The sociological structure of the Turkey is not like Iraq or Syria. For example, in Iraq or Syria there are Kurdish, Turkmen and Arab regions that are determined by sharp lines. They even distinguish themselves according to the religion they are attached to. But in Turkey there is no such differentiation. From the east to the west in Turkey, Kurds and Turks and others marry with each other, live together, and a society of natural mixture emerges for many decades. Can you divide a family into two, as mother side is Kurdish, father side is Turkish?
PKK was created by western intelligence agengies, in the begining of 1980’s. When we look at those days, we see that there was a fascist military coup in Turkey. Which is it was a coup CIA backed up. Unacceptable mistakes made by the Turkey government in 1980’s against the citizens of Kurdish origin in the south eastern Anatolia region, played the biggest role in the establishment of the PKK. And the organizations like CIA have strengthened their hands, about using the PKK. Although all western(including right and left wings) biggest support of PKK, PKK was never able to separate to Anatolia people into two.
When all this is knowingly or unknowingly ignored, the western leftist media plays three monkeys when it is claimed that the American soldiers have dressed like the PKK, and even the images of these are forcibly removed by US Special Forces. “I did not see, I did not hear, I did not know.”
Not having the virtue to accept historical mistakes that the leftist western media made by itself, nowadays put them into a position where they cannot defend even the freedom of the press.
In 2010, President Obama directed the CIA to assassinate an American citizen in Yemen, Anwar al-Awlaki, despite the fact that he had never been charged with (let alone convicted of) any crime, and the agency successfully carried out that order a year later with a September, 2011 drone strike. While that assassination created widespread debate – the once-again-beloved ACLU sued Obama to restrain him from the assassination on the ground of due process and then, when that suit was dismissed, sued Obama again after the killing was carried out – another drone-killing carried out shortly thereafter was perhaps even more significant yet generated relatively little attention.
Two weeks after the killing of Awlaki, a separate CIA drone strike in Yemen killed his 16-year-old American-born son, Abdulrahman, along with the boy’s 17-year-old cousin and several other innocent Yemenis. The U.S. eventually claimed that the boy was not their target but merely “collateral damage.” Abdulrahman’s grief-stricken grandfather, Nasser al-Awlaki, urged the Washington Post “to visit a Facebook memorial page for Abdulrahman,” which explained: “Look at his pictures, his friends, and his hobbies His Facebook page shows a typical kid.”
Few events pulled the mask off Obama officials like this one. It highlighted how the Obama administration was ravaging Yemen, one of the world’s poorest countries: just weeks after he won the Nobel Prize, Obama used cluster bombs that killed 35 Yemeni women and children.
In a hideous symbol of the bipartisan continuity of U.S. barbarism, Nasser al-Awlaki just lost another one of his young grandchildren to U.S. violence. On Sunday, the Navy’s SEAL Team 6, using armed Reaper drones for cover, carried out a commando raid on what it said was a compound harboring officials of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. A statement issued by President Trump lamented the death of an American service member and several others who were wounded, but made no mention of any civilian deaths. U.S. military officials initially denied any civilian deaths, and (therefore) the CNN report on the raid said nothing about any civilians being killed.
But reports from Yemen quickly surfaced that 30 people were killed, including 10 women and children. Among the dead: the 8-year-old granddaughter of Nasser al-Awlaki, Nawar, who was also the daughter of Anwar Awlaki.
I have been reading the news like this one: “Protests against right-wing US President Donald Trump’s ban on refugees and immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries have been held in cities across the United States, including in New York City and Washington, DC.” for last two days.
I am wondering what these protestors on the streets, want to do?
Could it be, “bring Obama administration or liberal(so-called) left-wing back on power?
Are you joke?
There is nothing changed for the whole world.
Obama administration were giving the orders to kill people.
Trump administration is doing the same.
For the entire world, there is nothing changed!
I am wondering how many of the protestors against Trump on the street right now, showed the same reaction against Obama administration when he ordered to kill 16 year-old Yemeni boy?
Any of them!
He was the Muslim boy like the others who were killed at Middle East last decades.
So, for you protestors, for showing reaction, you waited that Trump would be president, and you all have been sensitive for Muslim rights in an instant.
You are seeming like joke.
You are seeming like the actors and actrists on the hypocrisy stage.
The whole REAL-LEFT world see what you are; just you don’t see that you are an instrument for what.
Abdulbaki is 11 years old. He works in a textile workshop. The workshop is small, dusty… a guy with undershirt is shouting to them in order for they to work faster. The man is shouting but Abdulbaki doesn’t understand what the man said. Abdulbaki is Syrian…
Abdulbaki is a “lucky” kid. Instead of begging on the streets, he found a job in the workshop. Of course, the owner of the workshop is so much more lucky than him, he found dozens of Abdulbaki who is working for half of the minimum wage. The main factory owner is even more lucky. The relationship that he has established with the workshops makes the cost with very low wages, he gets new machines, expands business.
Textile is an interesting sector. Everything we wear is actually going between the workshops and the factories. In many cases, the main factory is taking orders, then giving it to it’s fason. Fason also can’t complete the job, it gives another part of job to an another fason. Sometimes, the rest of the job is distributed to the houses. It is not possible to know who completes; is it a 70-year-old aunt or 7 years old child is cleaning the thread?
Is it legal? Not of course, but who cares. The export champion of Turkey is automotive. The level of organization of automotive and organization does not remove such irregularities. The textile is following the automotive. It’s the second in exports, and it grows with that the irregularity is being the rule.
Abdulbaki dreams while he is ironing at 11 years old. “I will grow up and be a footballer,” he says. The minimum of working age is 15 in the country. Let’s look at briefly what happens from the year that Abdulbaki entered the job in textile at 11 years old to he become in 15.
Turkey is one of the leading countries of the world in tekstile. We are one of the favorite producers of many big, well-known brands (these adjectives can be read as expensive as the workers who produce the textiles can’t buy them at the same time). Cheap labor, quality production, the opportunities to escape from legal obligations, the politicians who even market the air and the water of the country. What would they want more? However, with the Syrians who is living in the country and reaching even 3 million in the official figures, the concern of deciphering came to the forefront. As same as how the Rana Plaza massacre in Bangladesh has shown that the textile industry has risen above the workers’ inanimate bodies, today the child labor in Turkey reveals the capitalism with all it’s nakedness. The being of the labour of his tiny hands on the coat or shoe he wears is like shouting “the king is naked”. Capitalism emerges with all its ugliness and nature and with it’s side which is made the people feel guilty. Even if a channel like the BBC is filming the documentary in the country, the situation is becoming critical.
That those brands which came to the country for making the cheap production are in a stew in these conditions. Controls are increasing. Children and unregistered workers are being hunted. While the brand inspectors are entering the front door, children are being evicted from the back door. Abdulbaki (now he is 12 years old), who is evicted by pushing from the fire exit of the workshop, is shocked at what he is going through. This day is an unexpected holiday for him, he is playing with the ball…
The situation is doom and gloom, the country is in a complicated spot. There is no “political stability”, there is a security gap, on top of it there is a risk of child labor. The brands are debating whether to withdraw from the country or not. Exporters are in panic. On the other hand, the funds are brought in so that the Syrians stay in Turkey. Projects are being done on the projects. From the European Union to the ILO(International Labour Organization) and NGOs, everyone is working very hard. Funds are collected, meetings are held. The people are getting worried by saying “What will happen the states of these children,” sincerely. But there is no solution in the system, any solution is not able to come out. “Poverty should be debateed” is being said; but the richness doesn’t be a matter of debate. Meetings held by different institutions, almost the same people are attending, are being held in big hotels. Together with tasty snacks, the situation of child workers and the unregistered Syrians are being discussed. Participants at the five-star hotel restaurant, while they are eating the meals that the contents of them are not understood from their names, at the same moments (Abdulbaki is now 13 years old), he is still in the workshop, and if he is lucky, there are only two pieces of meat in his lunch.
While Abdulbaki is ironing at the workshop, the projects are about Abdulbaki and meetings are preparing the splendent reports. “Participation is much higher than expected” is being absolutely underlined in these meetings. It is being stated that the studies on the subject have continued on the reports. Only the fees which are paid for writing these reports are equivalent to Abdulbaki’s monthly fee.
Field surveys are being done within the scope of the projects that were taken. At Bagcılar, the researchers are coming to the workshop for research about the child workers. But Abdulbaki is being evicted from the back door again. After he went out, he meets the good-humored surveyor who asks him the questions. Abdulbaki is well-learned the Turkish anymore. Now, he is a 14-year-old young boy. Into passing years, a young brother of him was born, Abdulbaki needs to work more anymore, he is working on overtime. His father was working on construction, but he was injured, he is at home now. Abdulbaki does not play the football as much as he used to be, he grew up quickly. Field researches continue… According to the records, Abdulbaki is still 14 years old; the datas on the records are not enough to explain how fast he reached at 20 even maybe at 30 years of age psychologically. Already he is no longer “Abdulbaki” anymore, he is the part of the data set.
The people who conduct field research and all these projects are not “bad”. Many of them want to heal Abdulbaki’s life sincerely. Whereas with the efforts of those “good” people, the two other of Abdulbaki were taken out of the working life and registered in the school, but the system is giving birth to twofold. The size of the exploitation that the Syrians are fallen into and even while the point which this exploitation came to disturb even a part of the capital, the problem still can not be solved; these all also show the exitless of capitalism. Abdulbaki is one of the indicators that you can’t reach a solution by looking through the system.
Today 24 November, Abdulbaki has turned 15 years old. The brands that are looking for cheap labor but are afraid deadly of that their images can be shaken and the institutions which protect and watch out the capitalism and try to “humanize” of it, also the exporters all together, celebrate Abdulbaki’s transition from illegal exploitation to the partly legal exploitation. Abdulbaki has forgotten his dream of being a footballer and also he is the birthday of today. He is ironing by dreaming of being a mechanic at the factory. Somehow, he is no longer a “child worker”, he is one of the “unregistered” workers who create more than half of the sector.
It needs to be much more than the funds which came from abroad to save the life of Abdulbaki who passed to young labor from child labor. If we take Abdulbaki from the workshop and we register him to school, would he be saved? This would be another subject of an another writing, however the answer is clear from the begining: Abdulbaki goes to the school, his brother goes to the workshop…
This article was quoted from SoL.org from its link:
According to the information received from Breizatao independent media outlet, as well as a video, France-Inter radio station used more than just aggressive rhetoric in its broadcast against the winner of the US presidential election billionaire Donald Trump.
The radio station openly called for his assassination: “Donald Trump and his victory have given a hope in the American people – the hope that he would be killed even before his inauguration,” Pablo Mira, a host of France-Inter said during a prime time radio show.
Pravda.Ru sources in France say that there were no penalties applied against the radio host. Noteworthy, France-Inter radio station is known for its strong anti-Trump sentiments.
However, no representative of either the French media, or the committee for audiovisual surveillance that plays the role of a censor in the French society, has found it necessary to apologize.
Is this the level which human beings want to reach? Is this the thing that humanity wants to be?
“The assassination” for humanity! How a big pitifulness it is to make an assassination call!
And attention to the last pragraph at news:
“However, no representative of either the French media, or the committee for audiovisual surveillance that plays the role of a censor in the French society, has found it necessary to apologize.”
They wouldn’t do this. Even if they would apologize because of they do have really benefit, not becuase of they believe in “they are in wrong”. This is French’s gift for the planet Earth. This gift consists of full hypocrisy and arrogance. Especially with their thought and lobbies about left-idea, the French left is one of the most responsibles and source of the wrong perception and wrong directioning of EU people about leftist idea and world!
PESHAWAR: The mainstream electronic media might be deaf and blind to the terrorist attack on a mosque in Mohmand Agency, but some rights activists on social media picked up the issue of not covering a deadly blast killing 22 and running non-stop tickers of arrest of a politician in Karachi instead.
“Had this blast happened in Kashmir instead of Mohmand Agency, Pakistani politicians, including the PM, would be in queue to issue statements,” reads a tweet on social media about the Friday’s mosque attack.
“Fata is bleeding and news channels are happy to glue themselves to Khwaja Izhar and Rao Anwar…and they call themselves beacon of information,” said a lawyer in his tweet criticising the mainstream media for blacking out the Friday’s attack in Mohmand tribal agency and running tickers of arrest of MQM’s leader of opposition in Sindh Assembly Khwaja Izharul Hassan.
Rights activists raise Fata issues on social media – DAWN
Only two private Pashto TV channels based in Peshawar showed updates and details of the terrorist attack on Mohmand mosque.
Bushra Gohar, a rights activist-turned politician, expressed her disappointment at the electronic media for not giving coverage to attacks in Mardan and Peshawar and the recent attack in Mohmand Agency.
“Firstly, Pakhtuns don’t have a channel of their own to highlight issues of this region. Secondly, Punjab-centric media is controlled and right winged. They never discuss serious issues like that of conflict in Fata and displacement,” said Bushra Gohar while explaining why the mainstream electronic media did not give any coverage to the issues of Fata , Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan which had still been bearing the brunt of terrorism and extremism. Not running any ticker on the blast in Mohmand Agency is the latest example of this selective reporting by the mainstream electronic media.
“The Fata people and its land have been used for the last over 60 years as strategic depth and human life has no value there,” said Bushra Gohar.
Ijaz Mohmand, a senior lawyer hailing from Mohmand Agency, seemed angered at the electronic media for not showing the tragic event and its details to let the world know how the people of Fata were suffering.
“We sensed it ourselves when we continuously saw arrest of a politician in Karachi on our TV screens, but there was no mention of the attack on mosque in Mohmand where mostly boys were hit and being transferred for treatment to Bajaur and Peshawar,” said Ijaz Mohmand, calling all those analysts and security analysts pseudo-intellectuals who seem to have no words when it comes to situation of Fata and never speak on the issues that are taking toll on the lives of people in tribal areas.
“…the screams of pain of the affected have yet to reach media houses,” Prof Khadim Hussain , a writer and analyst, tweeted when 22 persons were hit in a mosque during Friday prayers in Mohmand Agency.
Speaking on the issue of why electronic media refrained from discussing or highlighting the events in tribal areas, Prof Hussain told Dawn that when states used some areas for its strategic purposes then such areas become more like a black hole and its people were so much dehumanised by the state with its policies that even media was pressured to think anyone talking about the issues of Fata as a criticism against the state itself.
“Look what happened in Quetta, Peshawar and Kabul and now in Mohmand where innocent people were killed. On the one hand, the state is not ready to review policies causing pain in these areas, on the other, those who bring out the voice of these people are looked upon as working against the state,” explained Prof Hussain while analysing why the electronic media looked the other way when it came to highlighting the issues relating to troubled tribal areas or Balochistan.
(Pre-edit: I am feeling that I have been writing this post for days. Maybe it is. What I am saying! Absolutely it is! It seems that this has been longest writing that I wrote on my blog. And “hi!” to all my Earthling friends after a long time. 🙂 )
Everyone is talking and talking for days at the other side. There’s so much noise on this planet! Sometimes I want to push a button which will shut the people’s mouth. If there is a button in anywhere please one of you press it for me:)
Anyway, as I said, everyone is talking, but asking questions also. Asking questions is always good but it seems to ask question is turning into monopolized anymore in Anatolia. At this rate, it may be created a situation such as which these questions are in our monopoly, those questions are yours. This also would not be surprised; what didn’t these extraterrestrial eyes see on this planet!
Of course still, I do have questions. But I do have the answers, and inside these answers there are the some which are already known by everyone, but a few people have voiced as always. So we go upwards from the begining inside them.
The bombs dropped on the country’s parliament. Who bombed?: Fethullah Gulen community terror organization, so FETO!
According to statements, there are undeserving hundreds of thousands of people who passed the university admission exam with knowing the exams’ questions before the exams during the past 30 years, so since 1986.
Who stole and distributed these questions to own members?: FETO’s members!
Who has been saying always that these questions are being stolen, be careful, to the government?: Opponents!
Who didn’t care during these years?: AKP and, the media and institutions which were uplifted by itself!
(In Turkey, everyone is being settled to the universities, government agencies and military schools with the score at the exam)
Have some ones from both inside and out of country played with the country’s future?: Yes, they played!
Small example: Maybe there was a young who wanted to be a teacher and has ability to train bright generations for the sake of both country and world, and was living in a little residence in Anatolia. And this young couldn’t be teacher due to the stolen exam’ questions. Instead of him/her, FETO’s member has been teacher!
Thousands of students were deprived of this person?: “Yes!”
The future of these students were stolen?:”Yes!”
What was the result of this chain reaction?
Did the FETO coup plotters who shoot the people on the streets and the jihadist types with machetes or knifes who attacked to the private soldiers, emerge out?: “Yes!”
Especially, between the years 2008-2014. While every sane Anatolian people was saying “Ergenekon and Balyoz cases are calipers,” what were all AKP and it’s supporters doing?: They spoke very well about Fethullah Gulen, even while they were saying that Fethullah Gulen felt homesick almost they were in tears. Mostly, Turkish Olympics had these scenes until 2014. Not too much, until two years ago, all country was watching AKP’s members and supporters competetion of “thanks Fethullah Gulen”, with each other!
While the resuming Ergenekon-Balyoz cases, to say “these cases are calipers” was almost crime! Who provided this environment! An extraterrestrial like me didn’t provide! AKP and the ones who were uplifted by AKP’s hands, were competing to more aggrieve to the Ergenekon-Balyoz victims with each other in those days! Now, any of them is not taking responsibility of those days. You are kidding with whom!
Is it just alone Turkey media did this! Mainstream media at world which continues to sh*t into the world was not short next to them; almost universal smear campaings against defendants of Ergenekon-Balyoz were close fought with the ones inside the country! Almost every press that you looked at was talking about Ergenekon-Balyoz terror organization with smearing to the innocent people. Does the mainstream media have really so much desire to dominate people’s mind? How much leeches you are, the mainstream media at world!
In fact, the truth was in front of the world public’s eyes. Somehow, the thing which wasn’t knew and published by mainstream media interestingly, was known by the Fethullah Gulen’s neighbors in Pennsylvania for last 20 years. However, these huge media giants didn’t see the truth! Let’s look at this video which was made after July 15, and watch two ordinary American citizens, my Earthling friends.
So, the making news should have been very easy actually. But this huge(!) mainstream media had missed this news during 20 years! I think all mainstream media gets out of it’s seats! The people young or old like this sympathetic husband and wife should start broadcasting from entire world anymore!
Again between the years of 2008-2014, besides the mainstream media, that’s very important(!) think-tank institutions which this media hangs on their words, were not sitting with empty hands; these so called institutes were declaring that civil democracy has came to Turkey with these Ergenekon-Balyoz cases. The so-called experts of the politics were on the AKP’ supporters media channels in Turkey almost all the time at those days, and they were giving the examples from these super(!) think-tank institutes. We all have seen how much democracy has came to Turkey at July 15! When most sane officers-commanders of the country went to the jail by accusing of terrorism, the part of the rest bombed the parliament! Here that high-advanced democracy!
So, it means that the democracy would not come with the support of mainstream media, think tanks and the governments of EU and USA or the others, to anywhere on the planet!
Are the politicians of Turkey aware of that anymore? Or they pretend like they understood and still try to gain some profits from environment?
What about the ones who are up level of the plotters of coup attempt? (which I think it looked like a civil war rehearsal: because I have read a lot of thing about this and most logical idea belonged to Erol Mutercimler, and basically he said that “The coup attempt was built on the failure, this was a civil var rehearsal”) They obviously want to transform the country to the ping-pong ball; in this point, I am really wondering what are these imperialists thinking right now? More blood, more weak countries, more war on entire planet! You all don’t deserve to live on this planet!
So, the imperialism is trying to get the places where they can easily exploit for own aim and make the people puppet in every country on this planet.
What does it need to do?
It needs to take lesson from imperialism’s games!
Well, the AKP took it’s lesson from these? It doesn’t seem like that! Already the governments which are the parts of the capitalism wheel are not able to take the lesson.
Firstly, they do have an obligation to act with the capitalist classes. Or else it cannot sustain the continued power. Well, the subsidiaries of these capitalist classes, how much they can move easily in like a current situation. This is not possible either. Probably it will turn into a problem amongst them with time.
In this case, victory can only win against imperialism, with rising labour class up! With real equality within the all classes! Unfortunatelly, there is no socialism ship on the horizon yet…
All right, it is not on the horizon yet, but maybe, it may have sailed.
For seeing the socialism ship on the horizon, in fact, the thing which the working class needs to see that how the power struggle which experienced and experiences still between the capitalist classes who have religious instruments, serves to the imperialism, like the others. Listening the statements supported with religious instruments of the politicians, unfortunatelly doesn’t provide the people put bread on the table. If it had been, listening the mystic fairy tales from the heavens would have been good:)
Kidding aside, for example, I look at the AKP government did. I want to see that which conclusions they drawn from the case which almost could turn into insecurity for all the country.
The things that I look at, are the AKP’s studies which they aimed to prevent the destructions caused by FETO inside the military and public institutions. Ok, let’s we say that they do the right things, and the institutions are organized to avoid FETO’s settling again. What about the other religious communities? Two days ago there was a news, at the news Yalcın Akkdogan, AKP Ankara deputy, says by pointing out the construction of FETO inside military:
“At this point, it would be helpful that the other communities are at ease. Addressee of the legal process is this organization and it’s supporters.”
So, there is no lesson which was taken!
Already, I never thought they could understand that imperialism has never came close to neck of Turkey as much as these days after WWI!
Almost all important institutions of country have seized by a religious community and it became a terrorist organization, and they still say that the other religious communites would be at ease!
How can they sure themselves enough to say that another religious communities couldn’t turn into the terrorist organizations! On the other hand, the political connections which provided staffing of FETO members inside the institutions, were never heard yet. Yes, while all people inside the all institutions at the country has dismissed or arrested, but interestingly(!) there is no politician’s name inside these. During 14 years, AKP has been in power for 14 years! And all clear? All doesn’t have responsibility? What kind of comedy this is! Who’s trying to trick to whom?
So, do they want to mean the following?: “You erase the years between 2002-2014 from your memory. You see the AKP since 2014.”
Hooray! What a beatiful brain dead! I don’t know the Earthlings but to erase the memory is out of the question for ours, extraterrestrials!
The discreet people are making the unity call on tv channels. It is nice, but not convincing. Becuase, for unity, it should take steps as mutual from same distance for both sides. Is the most important factor of the reason of this situation that secularism has been destroyed almost all inside the public spaces, isn’t it? This country was sperated by the upper level of government with saying “this atheist, this religious, this secular, this rightist” or etc not too along time ago! It was thanks to whom? Has anyone ever seen that Recep Tayyip Erdogan embrace those who don’t vote for AKP, both in his words and practises?
Already, I’ve never been in an expectation as communist extraterrestrial; but some things should have been changed over the approaches for believing in the sincerity for this lonely and beautiful country after July 15!
And for all Middle East! I have been saying all the time, all my Earthling friends knows my words. This country is very important for all region. If the region wants and gets the peace it would be because of Turkey, not with military interventions of USA, Russia or EU. How long they will send the troops to Syria? How long the innocent people will die? Becuase at historical angle and ties, the region has been connecting with Turkey, and it has been a role model always, and mostly hope! This wasn’t due to Turkey has surrounded by sea from three sides 🙂 , this was/is because of Turkey is SECULAR and has MUSLIM majority country!
And the being role model for region and world would not come with the management which has only a man’s power! The region is not same with 200 or 100 years ago, the people are not the same with the people at 100 years ago. Only one man power does not work anymore, even they can try to cover up enough with democracy fairy tale!
“Turkey will be closer with whom anymore,” is another question which is asked in these days. Actually Turkey’ all need is the peaceful and sane politics which is close to every country at world from the equal distance. But this question is being asked in these days to predict the relationship of Turkey with Russia. No worries, it doesn’t need the fortunetelling:) I have written in here dozens of times, Russia-Turkey and Iran do have the common interests even though they have in ideational conflict with each other. Even I had written this was a big mistake when Su-24 has been fallen down by Turkey. Because I know Turkish and Russian people more or less. The people of these countries do have nationalist excited, they don’t have too much money but they do have national pride, even if I believe or not too much kind of these things, they do have these. And these features could create disaster in the event of a conflict between the two counties. That almost it was creating!
Turkey’s road map currently in the middle that it needs to Russia, as same as Russia needs Turkey. I also read Russian web sites often. And some of these sites, some people say that ” If Republic of Turkey would turn Islamic and one man power, it doesn’t make difference for Russia.” Even I didn’t look and read the articles at western web pages about this subject, I am very sure, same things are being said by some of them too.
Hmmm, so you prepared the all your plans for every result? But this would not work! Let me explain to you, explain like telling to idiots who are saying these:
Now there are two disabled points in here. As first, where are these people getting from, have right to manipulation on the regime of people of Anatolia! So, with this manipulation, do they want to hint to Putin like this one: “look Putin, no hard feelings but you also know that you are a kind of one man power in Russia, if Tayyip Erdogan would be the same, where is the harm?”
And these idiots also are giving examples over Iran and Russia relationships at these Russian web pages. They don’t have already any idea. Iran never wants to think that the possibility of being an Islamic management country to Turkey. Why? Iran is shia, Turkey has sunni majority. If secularism and parliament are not inside the management of Turkey, Iran is very aware that Iran’s existence would be under threat. They never want a sunni Islamic management in Turkey against the shia Iran at the region. Can we say that they are in the wrong?
Also, this is a very tragicomic situation for Iran management. Becuase, at the days when the Middle East wasn’t mess like these days with the terrorists inside it, Iran was exporting the communities which were so-called the “carrying of Islam flag” to Turkey. Their aim was “to destroy the secularism and republic”. The result of this, many bright and lettered people of Turkey were killed. Of course these didn’t happen just because of Iran exported religious communities, there are many factors behind them, especially, the dark forces which were puppet of intelligence agencies of west imperialism! My opinion is that the makers of “Green Belt Project” wanted to pick own harvest anymore. After all, this project had been started in 50’s against communism. With 1980 military coup, the coup plotters so “our boys” (the term was used by former CIA officer’s for coup plotter generals in Turkish army), eliminated the Turkish right wing nationalists and leftists of Turkey with arresting or killing. But no body was not aware at those days, the military coup plotters never touched the Islamic communites in Turkey. 1980 military coup was the victory for the Islamic wing of Turkey, and for the makers of Green Belt Project. And then in 90’s. If the people want to learn what’s happening today, they have to look at those days of Turkey. Those days were the days from the beginings of 90’s.
January 31, 1990: Prof. Muammer Aksoy was killed with shooting by Islamic Movement.
March 7, 1990: Journalist Cetin Emec was killed by shooting, he was freedom and democracy’s voice and against sharia.
September 4, 1990: Thinker, writer and journalist Turan Dursun was killed with shooting; he had written excellent books about Islam, for example one of his book’s name “Holy terror Hezbollah”.
October 6, 1990: Politic scientist and history Prof. Bahriye Ucok was killed with a bomb packet which was sent to her home by an organization of PKK’s arm.
While 1990 was passing with assassinations to brilliant people in Turkey, the 1991 was starting with Operation Desert Storm, and in January 17, 1991 USA jets left the ground for this operation from Incirlik, Adana Air base in Turkey.
1991 and 1992 has passed mostly PKK attacks in Turkey.
January 23, 1993: Journalist and writer Ugur Mumcu was killed with a C-4 type bomb in his car. I think he was/is still an unreplaceable journalist. After assassination of him, Islamic Movement, IBDA-C and Hezbollah have undertaken responsibility of his killing. Funny isn’t it! Three terror organization have been competition with each other. Why Ugur Mumcu was so important, and every terror organization wanted to declare of “we killed this man.”? I think he had found very important knowledges about their relationships with intelligence agencies behind of these terror organizations. After his death, his big brother and family have been giving interviews. One of them, his big brother was saying that “Ugur Mumcu had determined PKK realitionships and money resources, that’s why he was killed. Ugur was going to explain how PKK is under control of the intelligence services, in his book. Already he had picked up all evidences about this.” After his big brother words, people have started to ask: “If so, why these three terror organizations wanted to undertaken instead of PKK?”. Yes, why!
And if you want to read more about Ugur Mumcu you can read another my post about him in here
February 17, 1993: Four star general Esref Bitlis was dead in airplane crash with sabotage. Before his death, he was against the Operation Provide Comfort which was created by USA and coalition armies; he was wanting the coalition has to leave from the Iraq and region.
July 2, 1993 Sivas massacre: The biggest islamic bigots massacre for the Republic of Turkey. 33 writers, poets, thinkers and 2 of the hotel workers were burned by muslim bigots in Madimak Hotel in Sivas, Turkey. This massacre is shame for Turkey! Because, the alleged criminals of this massacre have never been taken the enough punishments which should be given! About 15.000 people crowded which has gathered in front of hotel; even despite people have seen the massacre on tv channels, only 163 people were sued. Madimak Hotel has not turn into ash without reason. The victims inside Madimak Hotel were burned with the bigots outcries of “Muslim Turkey”, “Sivas will be grave for the godless people”, “Go to hell, secularism!”, “Long live sharia!” in the hours. The lawyer figures of these bigots defendants was not less than the victims’ lawyers. During the court cases these bigots were seeming that they behaved in relaxed manner. Even some of them had assaulted verbally to victims relatives at the court cases. And four lawyers of these bigots’ lawyers had been deputy from AKP in the forthcoming years after the massacre.
After the years which passed with many events, last unsolved murder case of 90’s was in the year of 1999.
October 21, 1999: Politics scientist and journalist Prof. Ahmet Taner Kıslalı was killed with a car bomb. He was writing about especially secularism by defending secularism in his column.
The last striking name of this unsolved list,
December 18, 2002: Historian and writer Necip Hablemitoglu was killed by shooting. He was known especially with his book “Mole”. “Mole” tells the truths about Fethullah Gulen organization!
In those years the political climate of Turkey has been trend to right wing and liberal with religious enstruments thoroughly. For example, Tayyip Erdogan who started his politic life with RP(Welfare Party) had been elected as the mayor of Istanbul in the year of 1994.
The founder of Welfere Party was Necmettin Erbakan. He was very smart and intellectual person and has colorfull personality. And of course very religious. But despite all features of him, when thinking N. Erbakan and watching his videos, hearing his speeches, it seems that he was very different man from today’s politicans who had religious language inside their politics. Necmettin Erbakan, as much as I have seen, he wanted to believe Islam will be savior, and Iran will help for this. I don’t know why but I think he was honest with his ideals, he never said lie about his aim. As much as I have seen and read about him, he didn’t cover up his ideas with lies for benefits. And maybe the most important point about him is that he was anti-imperialist by his own way.
Of course, his warm relations with Iran and those who resumed this are the parts of the factors that perhaps facilitate to establish the ground for the Islamic communities and organizations which Iran exported in Turkey. However at Iran some things have also changed; Persian Gulf War and the economic crisis at the beginning of Iran’s 90, and American’s Iran embargoed since 1995, with all these, it is likely to be a restriction on the relationship with the Islamic religious communities exported by Iran. And turning of these communites into western imperialism tools may be the unpredictable casualties for Iran.
Iran also, with this new development, probably Iran saw again arising something which Iran knew very well in history; it was the only Shiite state that was quite alone on the planet. It had experienced with the effects of Soviet Russia and communism with Tudeh. There was a Russia that helped to Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war. However, on a large scale it was attached to the Russian economy over this period. For Iran, perhaps the most important development for the chance to continue in a straight line with Russia, has been with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Commercial and strategic ties that have formed behind as more stringent. The process that began with the American invasion of Afghanistan since 2001, now has become natural allies of Iran and Russia. In high percent Iran that does not want to relive the absolute solitude again would make the sound against one man power and being sunni-Islamic management of Turkey. Maybe Iran makes a sound and shows react and we don’t know.
Last week, Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s senior military adviser, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, has put forward that the coup attempt which was made in Turkey at the July 15, will not be able to occur without support and knowledge of a foreign country. Safavi said that:
“It cannot be said that USA and Russia were unaware of the coup in Turkey. The attempt at this scale, it cannot be done without the support and knowledge of a foreign country. There are big question marks on the coup’s supporters.”
And today, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that “There are strong suspicions the coup in Turkey about it was designed and created by US. If this would be proved, it will be a great disgrace on behalf of the United States.”
Yes, what we were saying: “maybe it does, and we don’t know” 🙂
The people who are the reason of all these explanations until this line, so, the ignorant people who are empty talking on Russian web pages or anywhere, they think that Islam is on the same line in everywhere, they even don’t know what the history tells.
According to them, in a simple, it doesn’t matter which country has which sectarian. Idiots:)
For the same idiots extra knowledge for free: Saudi Arabia has Wahhabi management. You don’t waste this knowledge in vain 😉
We came to the second disabled point of this thought. Now, let’s we think that Turkey has become one man management and so-called democratic Islamic country. Will this become easily? While this will be a biggest impact of Turkey’s fragmentation is clear in certain, while the half of Turkey population and maybe more, wouldn’t want one man and Islamic management, it is not possible it is becoming easily; as it is likely in the aim of this coup attempt, Turkey would be broken. Well, would Russia want fragmented Turkey as an ally? Russia and Turkey alliance can be strong only if Turkey is secular and in a body. This is not a prediction, this is the right perspective. Putin doesn’t see this? I don’t think so! Already, this is not hidden truth which is known by only an extraterrestrial:)
So now the AKP government is aware of how much of this? I do not think that they are very aware of. Because, somehow constantly it is taking steps that could result in different conclusions which will occur. While they are saying “we don’t seperate the people”, when it comes to performance, almost everything is being made all over separations. As well as being taken steps to strengthen the one man management in every step. For example, like the announcing of Turkish Armed Forces and intelligence agencies, will connect directly to the president of republic; or as the closure of the military schools and military academies. 3-4 days before a retired colonel who is one of the wronged people of Balyoz cases, has said that in live tv program to the government:
“Would you close the Minister of Justice Department, if Minister of Justice is doing a bad practice?”
I remember the 15 days prior Turkey’s agenda was continuously religious education, increasing number of the imam hatip high schools, expressions of council chairman of parliament (he is also deputy from AKP) about anti secularism and Ataturk, presidential system and constitutional change on Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s wish, and etc. That agenda was in a situation constantly anti-secular propaganda. Even one of journalist and writer who is giving speeches about the importance of secularism as inside the movement of secularism, had been threatened by the pro-AKP man.
Furthermore, the speeches were given and practices by AKP’s government could be easily understood as provacation to the people who didn’t give the vote for AKP; as if someones were wanting to pour the other(!) 50% of Turkey population into the streets by rebelling.
One of the biggest inciting attitudes, was shown over Gezi Park before the coup attempt. At there, the decision about it will not construct Topcu Barracks at Gezi Park as result of Occupy Gezi protests, has overturned with a high court decision. With this, just before the coup attempt, the governor of Istanbul said the barracks will be built at there. Tayyip Erdogan also said that same, of course.
The ones who are expressing constantly their devotion and loyalty to the Ottoman, they were/are trying to explain and show to their vote base that they will show this with re-building Topcu Barracks. However, interestingly, at those days, another Ottoman-era barrack was destroyed by Istanbul AKP management. Do AKP voters know this? Even if they know, do they care? I don’t think so. Already Political Islam requires this.
The structure at the picture was built with the name of “Kalyoncu Barracks” at the year of 1782, and with together Kasimpasa Barracks and Naval Barracks, it had been announced to be restored of all three by the Istanbul Special Provincial Administration in 2012. However Kalyoncu Barracks was destroyed in an instant. It does not exist anymore. It was used as the headquarters of the Northern Naval Area Command by Turkish army in todays. The Chairman Chamber of Architects Eyup Muhcu “Such structures are industrial heritage of ours. We as the Chamber of Architects, we had presented a report on the barracks should be restored in the evaluation of these structures for museums or art and culture, without destroying.” has said.
The day of June 22, 2016, about a month ago, despite all the reports it was destroyed.
Even re-building Topcu Barracks at Taksim square has come to such a state that only two days after coup attempt, at July 19, Tayyip Erdogan has said the following:
“Barracks in Taksim, inshallah (if god lets) Taksim Barracks will be made in accordance with it’s history; even if they want or not.”
Terrorists bombed the parliament of the country, and the president of the Republic of Turkey says this live on all tv channels. This is the most important issue right now?
One day later, at july 20, the president of Republic of Turkey is giving an interview to the Al-Jazeera tv, and he says another thing in this time:
“With a rate of 52% in Turkey, it was the public who has chosen the government of state, and 52% of population has poured into the streets to protect to own government. They gave the response against the military coup attempt.”
So, he is talking about those who voted for AKP. Does it mean that 48% of the people who have heard these words are not involved in the defination “public”; is that so? What happens after these? All AKP is becoming “peace democrat”(!) with saying “come and let be in unity” at the tv channels and the press. This is cosmic kidding!
After seeing the undermining of the secularism for 14 years, now with the shock of the coup attempt, 48% of the people lost their brain cells into the 15 days?
Or the management or the supporters of AKP tries to accept this 48% as blind and stupid; which this would be ridiculous effort, becuase this 48% of the population is more educated and respectful for the values of republic than the others. And maybe the most important feature of them, they are acting judiciously. This doesn’t mean they are stupid like AKP wants to see.
For example, this %48 remembers well that at past (not too much long before 2014) those who said about Fethullah Gulen was almost a deity descended from heaven, and now the same people with all together almost swearing to him. The others who have said for last 40 years that Fethullah Gulen is supported by CIA and a tool which has been using by imperialist west in the power struggle at the region, are trying to be silenced by ex lovers of Gulen at now.
It seems very weird situation, doesn’t it, my Earthling friends:) Let me explain this view of country.
For example, those who has been saying always that Fethullah Gulen was/is a tool of imperialism, today their opposition against the government is still being prevented. Those who hindered the opponents against AKP policy through Fethullah Gulen at past, now they are trying to hinder the opponents with the opposite conclusion over him. The most unlucky opposition should be in Turkey on this planet.:) If you ask why, nowadays even slightest opposition against AKP government is trying to turn into accusation to FETO’s membership by AKP’s media and it’s supporters.
Those who made this accusation, are the people who did have benefit via their close proximity to Fethullah Gulen and FETO at past! While they were doing this, the public had been more poor, but they didn’t care! Now the winds changed, they only say “we regret, we were deceived.” And like a kidding, they want that all left opposition accepts this new situation! Over this, they are creating pressure!
The result of this pressure, all AKP wants to impose the thought of that AKP and Tayyip Erdogan are only single blocker against FETO! Yes, the memories of public for 12 years should be deleted because of that.:) Already, all opposition people know that they are not single blocker against FETO; even they are not any blocker with their road where they walked together with Fethullah Gulen during 12 years came to until bombing of the parliament!
The only real power in the country is the working people! Neither the AKP nor Tayyip Erdogan. Governments are always temporary. However, the power of the working people is permanent!
And these working people have died in the mines some days. Even some of them were beaten after their miner friends have dead. During a protest against the AKP policy at Soma, a miner was kicked by a man who was one of the consultants of prime ministery, (at that period Tayyip Erdogan was prime minister). After the event this consultant recieved medical certificate from doctor due to “while kicking the miner, he had broken his own leg”! This is a true event which was experienced on the lands of Anatolia!
The laborer miners and the public would not forget this!
Laborers were/are dismissed from their jobs, and they are starving! Due to the money grubber employers who hired the Syrians refugees for cheap labor, they don’t have a job again! One of these laborer families lost baby because of hunger!
The laborers and the public would not forget this!
The laborer people were killed by the terrorist! Even the mourning of the people who were killed because of the bomb at the Ankara station hasn’t been declared; but when Saudi king dead, mourning was declared by government!
The laborers and the public would not forget this!
These working people have dead while they were working at construction sites. Even it is known very well that if the bosses had taken the measures for job safety these workers wouldn’t be dead, still all mistakes of bosses were covered up!
The laborers and the public would not forget this!
These things and many more, really happened at this country!
And now, AKP government and pro-AKP people are attempting to establish the connection of almost everything (except themselves) with FETO; they are trying to show that as if OccupyGezi was just a provocation of FETO.
OccupyGezi was made by the civilian people who didn’t take order from any politician. It was the first civil disobedience movement in almost all segments of the population of Republic of Turkey. There was no soldier or civil authority behind them! Today, those who filled full to the streets with instruction, those who are shouting “civil democracy!” by waving Turkey flag, at those days they could not endure to see same Turkey flag. Even a flag dealer had been arrested police forces. Yes, this happened! Today those who says the Ataturk’s words with praising, at those days was saying “bas*ards of Ataturk” for the protestors. Why they said these and more for the protestors? Becuase they wanted to provake, because they knew very well, OccupyGezi was embraced by Ataturkist, communists, Kurdish and Turkish nationalists, socialists and the others, just only except AKP’ people. They were trying to seperate the protestors. They couldn’t achieve this.
Including Fethullah Gulen, his whole organization, including closed FETO’s publications in today’s, they all together had launched smear campaign against the people who joined the protests, during the days of OccupyGezi. These are all registered and available on the internet! Pro-AKP media already was showing documentaries about penguins, out of that times that they didn’t show, they were using the word of “terrorist” for protestors!
However, despite the truth is in front of all world, during last week AKP voters and supporters and it’s media have started to try to associate OccupyGezi with FETO!
In last week, the mayor of Istanbul and the president of Republic of Turkey, in every speech which they made in a few days apart, they said that “Topcu Barracks will made at Taksim Gezi Park.” This was said as last at two days ago. Already, the coup attempt wasn’t experienced! Already people have not died! Already all concern of the whole country is Topcu Barracks!
Do you know what is the history of Topcu Barracks, my Earthling friends?
It was built between 1803-1806. On March 31, 1909, the soldiers were in here had revolted with wanting “sharia” against the military officers. Meanwhile, Ismet Inonu who was the second president of Republic of Turkey after Ataturk was the one of the officers who suppressed this sharia uprising. This barrack was also destroyed with Ismet Inonu order after Ataturk’s death.
What is the situation which we came in today’s? With the support of whole AKP supporters and media, they try to link to those who don’t want to rebuild this barracks with FETO.
What does the opposition parties make in the meantime! They do nothing! Only Selahaddin Demirtas and very few CHP deputies try to say somethings against all applications at these days, but government pretends not to see him and the others. But as parties, they do not make sound enough. I think all three opposition party at the parliament doesn’t deserve the people who have given vote for them. They all into the system!
For the people of Anatolia, these three all would need to have “red line”, because of they represent the opponent people at parliament. But they don’t have. They need to be voice of the people. Yesterday, military schools and academies were closed with delegated legislation which is applied in the manner of emergency state. Yes, this have been declared that it was made for the “cleaning of FETO”. Yes, to prevent to these islamic terror organizations in the military is very hard! (Already, there is no need to bother too much to fix them, that’s why let’s shut down!) The other reason that was declared is related with everything will be under control civil authority. (Which civil authority? Is 48% of population that didn’t vote for AKP including of this civil authority!)
Yes, already the thing that the governments of EU and USA wanted, has been always this! Civil democracy has came to Turkey! Why do you complain, western governments! You should celebrate! And no thanks, don’t talk too much, and don’t complain against the thing that you always wanted, all you, most EU and USA governments and politicians! Western imperialists, all you are hypocrite LEECHES!
But don’t worry western imperialists, people are already know what you are! People know that not to need your words.
Near future, when Topcu Barrack will rebuild again, the people will now well more than ever, this structure will arise with big efforts of the most EU and USA governments and politicians until today’s since 50’s!
The sane people of Anatolia are very aware more than government, if they would do something against this will be bad for the country, and they are very rational. They know that they have to be. Even the ones seem to take profit from this environment, these days will pass of course in one day; it is just for reminder. And if there are the someones who want to see the collapse of Turkey, I am sorry for you. Occupy Gezi may never be again, but the silence of these people will not be because of you, it will be because of they love this country. The people are not stupid like yours, they will aware of all game from both inside and outside!
Now, if they want they would rebuild again, they would make whatever they wanted; shortly the protesters of Occupy Gezi are not stupid, they are aware of the everything, of all traps.
However, after all these, at last the trying to link between protestors and FETO, all will never be forgotten by public! And for the governments, the worse thing is the memory of the public unfortunatelly. Especially into these memories, if there are the young people who were killed in young ages and that the people have kept tears when hearing their names.
Let me explain with an example.
There are the statues of a minstrel with the name of Koroglu who lived in the city of Bolu at 16th century, at Bolu, Turkey. Koroglu is the one of the symbols of freedom and revolt against unjustice of Anatolia. He had rebelled against the lord of Bolu at that days. Surfaces of these statues there are the words from his poems. Like “The rifle was invented, bravery was broken” 🙂 (This always makes me smile)
And some of them the following is written:
“Send my hello to the lord of Bolu.”
Today, anyone cannot remember or don’t know the name of lord of Bolu. But everyone loves and knows Koroglu both young and old alike. So, he is the one of most important symbols about who will be remembered and how.
Do you know what are the influence of Ali Ismail, Berkin Elvan and the others who were killed at Occupy Gezi days on the public? They are remembered as same as Koroglu by 48% of people.
I am saying to those who hold power anywhere on the planet: “look carefully to his statues.”
And, did I mention that before, “anyone cannot remember or don’t know the name of lord of Bolu. But everyone has been loving and knowing Koroglu for last 400 years”?
37 innocent people have been killed at the Ankara massacre, 13 March 2016. In these days their funerals have been made. There were the react and angry outcries against PKK terrorist organization and AKP’s policies. In here I’d like to share some of them. Many stories have been left behind them.

and the other twenty five people…
Last 3 days, I haven’t seen to much attention for the Ankara massacre by world public. WHY? Same questions was asked by an English music man who lives in Ankara. James Taylor shared these lines from his facebook account.
‘You were Charlie, you were Paris. Will you be Ankara?’
here his writing:
“For those who do not know Turkey, or who distance themselves from these attacks, maybe this will open your eyes.
The bombing this evening occurred in the one of the most crowded parts of the centre of town, next to many bus stops with people waiting to go home, arriving for a night out, and sitting in the park relaxing and drinking tea.Is is the equivalent of a bomb going off outside Debenhams on the Drapery in Northampton, or on New street in Birmingham, or Piccadilly Circus in London.Can you imagine being there? Can you imagine the place you walk past every day, the bus stops you use, the roads you cross being obliterated.Can you imagine the victims?
The teenagers catching the bus to go home, the grandparents walking into town, the people waiting for a taxi after a long day laughing and socialising in the sun.Now imagine they were english, and this attack was in England. If these people were instead the people you see every day on your way to work, people just like you and I, normal, happy people. Families, policemen, students, artists, couples. Your friends maybe. These people are no different. They just happen to be Turkish.
Contrary to what many people think, Turkey is not the Middle East. Ankara is not a war zone, it is a normal modern bustling city, just like any other European capital, and Kizilay is the absolute heart, the centre.It is very easy to look at terror attacks that happen in London, in New York, in Paris and feel pain and sadness for those victims, so why is it not the same for Ankara? Is it because you just don’t realise that Ankara is no different from any of these cities? Is it because you think that Turkey is a predominantly Muslim country, like Syria, like Iraq, like countries that are in a state of civil war, so therefore it must be the same and because you don’t care about those ones, then why should you care about Turkey?
If you don’t believe that these attacks in Ankara affect you, or you can’t feel the same pain you felt during the Paris or London attacks, then maybe you should stop to think why, why is it that you feel like that. Turkey is an amazing country with truly wonderful people. I have never felt more welcome, more happy, more safe than I do here.Ankara is my home, it has been for the last 18 months, and it will continue to be my home.You were Charlie, you were Paris. Will you be Ankara?”
And my question and my following words are for those who shared France flag and condemned the terror at Paris but don’t see Ankara massacres. Last 5 months about 200 people were killed at Ankara by PKK and ISIS. But I don’t see same reaction like Paris. WHY?
Because of you don’t like AKP government and Tayyip Erdogan policies! Is this your answer? I don’t like any government at EU and USA, but this is not preventing my sadness to any victims of terror at these contries. This is about deep instict. Let’s confess; You never liked the people of any east country, including Turkey, Russia, Iran, Syria or etc in real. You never seen as valuable of the people’s life at east. Please tell the face the victims of terror at above picture, “your life is not valuable more than the people at west.”
If my words are hard for you I want to give a simple example besides houndreds.
Mesut Ozil is a Turkish origin football player, and playing at Arsenal football team. He shared his sadness with a tweet for Ankara massacre. And most people chanced the hashtag “pray for Ankara” as “pray for Arsenal”scoffingly , you can see their replies.
Anyway, this is just one example.
Let’s confess; You just like to share photos of victims at Middle East for catching attention by public. You always like the drama, because you now that drama is most neccesary thing for being popular of you. You never thought actually. You never wanted to think actually.
This is hypocrisy. Ohh no, isn’t it! It is! And, I give you a tip:
It is supposed that all has begun three days ago. Three days ago, Turkish F-16 shot down Russian fighter Su-24 . This writing is about the sequential chronology of this insanity.
When I heard Su-24 was shot down, my brain began to throb. Because I was seeing what will come after this. Because I know the character of the people of Russia and Turkey. Basically the people on both sides are truehearted, but their nationalist behaviors can swell instant thrills. And both side are quite far to the point of being discreet.
And it has been as I expected. The more than what I expected came from the rest of the planet. Actually it was not more, hypocrisy was on stage again. Let’s see what happened before and last three days.
September 30, 2015
US Government has been asking Diyarbakir airbase, outside Incirlik military airbase in Turkey for a long time. Eventually it reaches his goal and at September 30, 2015 American soldiers began to be deployed here.
November 6, 2015
US brought 6 new F-15C to Incirlik airbase. Of course, all of them covered by NATO. My American Earthling friends who are reading this, how the US government forms the basis of the NATO force with your taxes, you can see.

Russia bombed the Turkmen regions in Syria.
Turkey: Russian ambassador and Russian military attaché were called to Turkey ministry of foreign affairs. It made a triple warning to them, according to diplomatic sources. It has been said that if they continue to operations against the Turkmen in the border region inhabited by the Turkmen, next time Turkey would not stay indifferent.
Russia: “We are targeting terrorist sources, not Turkmen civilians.”
Like experienced journalist Husnu Mahalli said before: “No one knew that Turkmen and Syrian government had problem before 2011. What happened in and after 2011?”
People from different ethnic groups live in Syria. One of them these groups, the Turkmen, they are Turkish origin, and they live in the provinces, especially near the Turkey border for centuries. They are divided as Sunni, Alevis and Shiites. And again, as very sane Turkish journalists told, innocent Turkmen civilians are not in that area no longer. The Turkmens who stayed in Syria are the opposition who are fighting against Assad in the Syrian jihadist groups. Even, Turkmen people who came to Turkey as immigrant live in worse conditions than most other Syrian immigrants. Turkey government doesn’t like to them, but it liked suddenly Turkmens who fight against Assad outside of Turkey borders! Why? Are not they the terrorists for accepted offical Syrian government? Why US, Turkey, England, France, Saudia Arabia, Quatar insist continuously to create and support these opposition groups against Assad?

Russian Su-24 was shot down by Turkish F-16
Turkey: “We operated rules of engagement. We have warned them ten times in 5 minutes, they did not give us an answer.”
Russia: “Warnings weren’t made. We didn’t cross the border.”
Almost every day, Greek and Turkish jets are doing dog-fight in the Aegean sea. But Turkey never intended to shoot down any Greek jet fighters. I am thinking the both sides so Russians and Turks military sides are saying the truth. So, Turk pilots have warned in real, and Russian pilots did not receive this warning as they tell.
Important question: Is there any possibility that any electronic war system of NATO could prevent to reach of this warning in a way? Turkish F-16s all the equipment connected to America out of the switches. And why both Turk and Russian side are not asking this question?
November 25, 2015
Turkey: Turkey government has called to NATO for a meeting. Records of warnings and violations in the hands were shown.
Russia: “Turkey went to talk with NATO instead us.”
Turkey’s government is not protecting own borders for a long time, it protects the borders of NATO. Russia is right about this response. But it was always seeming to be in friendly cooperation Erdogan with Putin. Putin didn’t understand this difference? The governments of Turkey, have been doing what NATO or American governments wanted for the last 50 years. It’s impossible to not knowing these. And it attached to my mind, if these are known, do Putin and Russian government intentionally add fuel to the flame?
Russia: “We were stabbed in the back.”
What was discussed in G-20 meeting one week before and, Putin gave this reaction? Why isn’t he making explanation? Erdogan and Putin were smiling to the cameras at that days. Is Putin so naive? I don’t think so.
And, the reactions rapidly increased from the world.
The Russians made rally in Moscow and burned Turkish flag. Battle-axes were appeared over the websites. Such a paragraph which begins with “one Russian and one Turk went to a bar..” turned into “if a bear and a wolf fight which one…” speeches. Ukraine has prepared a video for thanking Turkish air force. Everything was developing like a joke.
November 26, 2015
After Russian pilot was killed, intense reactions became. This was a terrible incident. The ones who wrote this scenario knew well these events will occur, because for Russians and Turks, military is important. It is not official situation, it is unacceptable situation for public. The owners of this scenario foresaw obviously good at it.
Russia made call to Russian citizens to return. The city of Antalya (the only city in the world that most of the Russians spend vacations and live, and Turkey’s city on the Mediterranean) began to empty. Even Alanya in Antalya, Russian population is density of more than Turks. There is even a local Russian newspaper. Russians in other cities in Turkey are confused. There are thousands of Turkish and Russian marriages and their children. I guess Putin and Erdogan have sacrificed them.
Turkey: It began lynching campaign against those who say Russia justified. Even “defending to Russia is a traitor, they should been excluded from citizenship” campaign started on the internet. Yes, Turkey has divided into two parts.
World: Some western academicians (yes they so-called well educated) in social media began to write articles like that:
“Putin, you delete Turkey over world map, you bomb this country.”
Already these so-called educated idiots people will save Middle East, really!
Even North Korean leader Kim Jong-un also joined this bandwagon. He said :
“If Turkey would bomb to Syria, I will delete Turkey with atomic bomb.”
Of course, Kim Jong supposes that atomic bomb is a toy!
Germany has seen Turkey is unfair in suddenly.
Wasn’t Merkel, who showed own support to Erdogan before the election of Turkey!
Many writings and announcement about both Turkey and Russia.
Meanwhile, the ministers were assigned to new Turkey government. The government cabinet that Tayyip Erdogan wanted was created. Even, the husband of Erdogan daughter became a new energy minister in this new government. The same day evening, Can Dundar who is journalist in Cumhuriyet newspaper was arrested, because of mit trucks news.

Today is indistinguishable from the others. Russia and Turkey still continue to fight to talk about each other.
Russians and Turks in history have faced against eac other at the Tsarist-Ottoman period. They never showed hostility to each other except this period. Because the national interests of both countries requires them to act in parallel. They don’t need to love each other, no one has to love anyone. But they need to act smarter. The rulers currently are not smart as Lenin or Stalin and Ataturk. These people acted partners against imperialism at the history. They didn’t open a front against each other. Because such a front was opened, the winner would have been imperialism. They knew that. And at least I hope one side of these two countries leader see this. I should say that I have more hopeful Putin about it, of course if he hadn’t any secret agenda about this chaos. One side must be more prudent and reasonable.
On the other hand, the most important issue is:
There is a very wrong election system in Turkey. There is a threshold of 10%. If a party fails to take over 10% of all votes, it can not be represented in parliament. And this system is beneficial to existing government last 12 years. 51% of public in Turkey in the last election did not support the current government and its policies. If we take the wrong election system as base, close to 60% of Anatolian people didn’t support the current government and policy of Tayyip Erdogan. And these people who didn’t support are the key persons of the solution in the Middle East. Because Turkey has been only country in the region that was able to direct to models in this area historically. As being culturally, economically and geography, there is not another solution outside of Turkey.
Russia is a region country in a way. But Russia is not a solution to humans at this region. Russia helps to maintain the balance of power at maximum with good intent. The people who I mentioned and didn’t give vote Tayyip Erdogan policy in Turkey, they are the key people who will solve the terror problem.
The majorty of people at the world suppose that these people at Turkey are very good condition.
You don’t know any idea what they lived through in every day!
They know that if they talk they will go to gail, but still they talk!
They know that if they make a rally they will go jail, but they still try to do!
They know that if they make anything against this government, they fired job, but they still do!
They know that if they make against more, even they can be killed, but they still do!
Have you ever lived under the rule like this! If your answer is not, why are you talking still!
Despite the all humiliation what the world made, these Anatolian people still prudent! They’re trying to solve issues with prudent manner.
If you want that no longer barbarians wouldn’t cut heads, any little girl wouldn’t be raped, and children would not die in Syria, you have to start seeing of these people in Turkey anymore. These people in Turkey are fighting against imperialism more than you can imagine under much greater difficulty both inside and outside of Turkey.
It is really easy to say:
“Let’s bomb Turkey, delete this country over map,”
You idiots, maybe if Turkey is erased from the world map, you would save the region from terrorists by coming here! What do you say! You are a keyboard hero, nothing more!
But those who live in the Anatolia and you installed the hated sentences will save you from this terror in a way!
Despite you, although you do not support them, even if you humiliated them with hatred every day, these people will do it for peace in their region and at the world. Because they do have more knowledges and culture than you and see the reality more than you! While you continue your life with courage ignorant, when that day will come, these people will be succeed in spite of everything.
But still when that day comes, they wouldn’t be angry to you…
Because the people of Anatolia are like that, they don’t have the ability to hold a grudge. These people that you looked at with your arrogant lives, still they will open their doors to you with warm smiling faces.
“…More than 300 slavery and migration scholars respond to those advocating for military force against migrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean. This is no slave trade. Where is the moral justification for actions that cost lives?…..
European Union political leaders have announced that their response to the staggering loss of life amongst migrants crossing the Mediterranean in unseaworthy vessels will be the use of force to smash the so-called ‘networks’ that operate out of Libya to orchestrate the perilous sea crossings. How? On May 11, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini stated that “No one is thinking of bombing. I’m talking about a naval operation,” but two days later, the Guardian reported on a leaked strategy paper for an EU mission in the Mediterranean and in Libyan territorial waters proposing an air and naval campaign. This, the paper said, would lead to ‘collateral damage’. In other words, adults and children boarding or aboard the vessels under attack might be killed. With or without bombs, such ‘collateral damage’ is already a known product of the measures being employed by the EU to push back, deter, and divert migrants, including those seeking asylum. ..
The European Union is putting its plans for a military intervention in the Mediterranean and North Africa into action. The decision was made by EU foreign and defence ministers at a meeting in Brussels on Monday.
A press release states: “The Council has agreed today (18 May) to establish an EU military operation—EUNAVFOR Med—to break the business model of smugglers and traffickers of people in the Mediterranean. This decision, which is one element of the comprehensive EU response to the migration challenge, will enable the formal start of the operational planning for the naval operation.”
The first phase of the mission to uncover the smuggling networks and their routes will begin immediately, to be followed by a second and third phase “that would work to search, seize and disrupt the assets of smugglers.”
