Turkey Advices Citizens to Postpone Non-Urgent Travel to Russia


Turkey’s foreign ministry has advised people to postpone all non-urgent travel to Russia, the latest move in an escalating row between Moscow and Ankara over a Russian jet shot down by Turkey.

The ministry said in a statement that, following difficulties faced by Turkish visitors and residents in Russia, it advised Turks to postpone all non-urgent travel.

It said Turks should delay travel plans until “the situation becomes clear”.

Turkey’s downing of the Russian military jet on Tuesday, the first time in half a century that a NATO member has shot down a Russian plane, has drawn a harsh response from Moscow.

Russia has restricted tourist travel, left Turkish trucks stranded at the border, confiscated large quantities of Turkish food imports and started preparing a raft of broader economic sanctions.

Lavrov: US Turning Blind Eye on ISIL Oil Trade

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the United States is turning a blind eye on the oil sales of the Ttakfiri group, ISIL (so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Levant).

During a press conference with his Syrian counterpart, Walid al-Moallem, in Moscow Friday, Lavrov said the US-led coalition allegedly fighting the insurgents in Iraq and Syria has been aware of the terror group’s oil sales, but has ignored it “for some unknown reason.”

“I am convinced that they saw all that but did not do anything for some unknown reason. Russian warplanes started bombing that criminal industry when they began operation in that area," Lavrov said.

"Of course, it’s certainly not a coincidence that our Turkish neighbors grew more and more nervous” after the bombardment of ISIL oil tankers by Russian fighter jets, Lavrov stressed.

Russia launched military airstrikes against ISIL and other terrorist groups in Syria on September 30, following an official request from the Syrian government. The Russian Navy has also contributed to the fight against the terrorists, firing missiles at targets in Syria from its warships in the Caspian Sea.

A US-led coalition has been bombing purported ISIL targets in Syria and Iraq for over a year, but the air campaign has largely been ineffective.

‘Russian Bear’ Will Show Turkey Its Place


Whatever Ankara would claim, it’s beyond its capability to compete with Moscow, German media wrote. Russia not only can hit the Turkish economy hard, but also put an end upon Turkish dreams of becoming a leading power in the Middle East region.

 The escalation of tensions with Moscow could not only result in the implemenation of economic sanctions upon Ankara, but also in negative consequences for its role in the whole Middle East region, reporter Thomas Seibert wrote for Der Tagesspiegel.

“Not only are Russo-Turkish relations laid on the line, including gas supplies from Russia and plans of Turkey to create a buffer zone in Syria. Erdogan steps up with an idea of ‘renovated Turkey’” that as a substantive regional power pursues its own interests in the Middle East,” Seibert claimed.
After the Su-24 incident, Erdogan’s senior aide Yiğit Bulut wrote for the Star newspaper that Turkey is a “great country,” which won’t allow anyone to interfere in its internal affairs. The country’s president said that Turkey considers the whole region lying between the Balkans, Caucasus and Northern Africa a zone of its sovereign interests.“However, in reality the state of affairs is different. Erdogan can hardly undertake anything to hamper Russia in Syria,” Seibert argued.

Semih Idiz, a columnist for Hürriyet newspaper, doesn’t rule out that in the developed situation the supporters of Turkey in the north of Syria would come under intensified fire attacks by Russian Aerospace Forces. He also added that “poking the ‘Russian Bear’ comes at a cost.”

“Erdogan’s thesis that Turkey is a substantive regional power  in the Middle East has shaken,” the German reporter pointed out.

After the crash of the Russian Su-24, the tone of the Turkish president’s claims have varied from apologetic intonations to harsh ones, Der Tagesspiegel noted. Erdogan either calls for “peace, dialogue and diplomacy” in relations with Russia, or states that Turkey’s aim is to down Russian jets in event the country’s airspace is violated."It’s doubtful that this [claim] will make a great impression on Moscow,” Seibert concluded.

Erdogan’s Treachery

Downing Russia’s aircraft was an act of war and treachery – Erdogan revealing his rogue credentials for the whole world to see,
compounded by his Big Lie about invoking Turkish rules of engagement against the plane entering its territory.
Russia has clear evidence proving otherwise, including exposing his fraudulent claims about issuing “10 warnings.” Lies compounding other lies produce Bigger Lies.
Turkey was caught red-handed. No explanations came from Western media scoundrels, supporting what demands condemnation, especially US imperial wars.
Surviving navigator Konstantin Murakhtin told RT International:
“It’s impossible that we violated (Turkish) airspace even for a second. We were flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters in completely clear weather, and I had total control of our flight path throughout.”
“In actual fact, there were no warnings at all. Neither through the radio, nor visually, so we did not at any point adjust our course.”
“You need to understand the difference in speed between a tactical bomber like a Su-24, and that of the F16. If they wanted to warn us, they could have sat on our wing.”
“(T)he missile hit the back of our plane out of nowhere. We didn’t even have time to make an evasive maneuver.”
Both crew members ejected on impact. Pilot Sergey Rumyantsev was killed. A Turkmen terrorist allied with Ankara claimed he was shot while parachuting.
RT said a 12-hour search operation by Russian and Syrian special forces rescued Murakhtin. In Russian military flying competition last year, he won Top Navigator” award honors.
He wants to return to frontline service as soon as he’s declared fit to fly. “I must pay back the debt for my captain,” he said. Russia called what happened a “planned provocation,” stopping short of explaining all it knows.
Washington’s dirty hands were involved, the likely orchestrator of what happened, Erdogan acting as a convenient hitman. Putin straightaway suspended military cooperation between both countries.
Expect more payback coming, including likely canceling the multi-billion dollar Turkish Stream pipeline project, enabling Turkey to become a major transit country for Russian natural gas exports to European markets – gone at least for now, perhaps as long as Erdogan is around, a blow to Turkey’s economy.
Moscow suspended visa-free travel from Turkey to Russia, beginning January 1. Expect other measures to follow. Russians are an important part of Turkey’s tourism industry. They’ve been warned to stay away because of internal dangers to their safety.
Russia’s biggest tour operators terminated relations with Turkish hotels and resorts. Russian imports of Turkish products may suffer. Hundreds of trucks were stopped at the Georgian/Russian border. Slow inspections followed. Customs officials suggested a possible terrorist threat from goods being transported.
Dozens of Turkish businessmen attending an agricultural exhibition were detained for entering Russia on tourist, not business visas. They’re being deported, maybe others prevented from coming.
Moscow cancelled planned 2016 cultural exchanges between both countries. A Turkish nuclear power plant project may be scrubbed. Its military issued an absurd, hugely offensive statement, claiming it didn’t know the downed aircraft was Russian.
It knew perfectly well what it was doing – a well-planned provocation, Washington’s dirty hands involved. Erdogan now says he wants to “meet Putin face-to-face in Paris…to bring the issue to a reasonable point…disturbed that the issue has been escalated.”
His duplicitous remark likely fell on deaf ears in Moscow. His criminal act won’t soothe the anguish of family members of the Russian pilot he murdered – nor Moscow officials justifiably enraged, betrayed by a phony ally turned open adversary.
Putin said the incident seriously jeopardizes joint cooperation in the war on terrorism, none involving Turkey. Downing the aircraft and killing its pilot created a major international incident – unacceptable by any standard. Phony explanations don’t wash.
Well-known Russian analyst John Helmer tweeted: “Never before has the personal animosity of the heads of state of the United States and Turkey towards the President of Russia been so sharp and expressed so obviously. The (likely) consequences, too.”
Statements Putin made Thursday expressed his usual straightforwardness, saying:
“I would like to remind you that it was the passive position of a number of countries, and often their direct collusion with terrorists that actually led to the rise of the terrible phenomenon known as the Islamic State.”
“They not only cover up for the terrorists, their illicit trafficking in oil, people, drugs, works of art and arms, but also benefit from it, making hundreds of millions, even billions of dollars.”
“I have to say that we find absolutely inexplicable the treacherous stabs in our back dealt by those we thought to be our partners and allies in the antiterrorist struggle.”
“I am referring to the incident with the Russian bomber hit by Turkish air defence forces.”
Later the same day, he added:
“Those who apply double standards when dealing with terrorists, using them to achieve their own political aims and engaging in unlawful business with them, are playing with fire. History shows that sooner or later such actions will backfire against those who abet criminals.”
“Look, we informed our American partners in advance when our pilots were going into action and where, in what air corridors. The American side, which leads the coalition, to which Turkey is also a party, knew about the location and time of our operation.”
“And this is precisely where we were hit. The question is, why did we pass this information to the Americans? Either they are not in control of what their allies are doing or they hand out this information every which way without understanding the implications.”
“We are ready to operate in a different format that would be acceptable for our partners. We are ready to work together with the US-led coalition.”
“It goes without saying that incidents like the downing of a Russian jet and the death of Russian servicemen, a pilot and a marine trying to rescue his brothers in arms, are absolutely unacceptable. We assume that this won’t happen again.”
“Otherwise, we don’t need such teamwork with anyone, with any coalition or any countries. If Turkey is destroying it, we don’t see any smoke or flames from burning oil.”
“Again, we’re talking about amounts on an industrial scale. A plant would have to be built to destroy that much oil. None of that is really happening. If top level leaders in Turkey know nothing about this, then tell them now.”
“I admit that there may be some elements of corruption or collusion. Let them figure it out. However, we have no doubt about this oil going straight to Turkey. We can see it from the air: fully laden trucks go there and come back empty.”
“Then again, they leave terrorist-held Syria for Turkey fully loaded, and return empty. We see it every day. Regarding Turkey’s Air Force allegedly failing to recognise Russian aircraft, this is simply not possible!”
“The aircraft have insignia that are clearly visible, indicating that they are Russian aircraft, not anything else. This is the first thing I wanted to say.”
“Second, I’ve already said, and will say again: under our agreement with the United States, we have shared information on where our pilots will fly, at what flight levels, where and when. As we understand it, this is an operating coalition.”
“Turkey is a part of this coalition. Thus, they should have been informed that the Russian Air Force was operating in the area. Who else could it be? How would they act if they knew it was an American jet? Would they hit it? This is all nonsense.”
“These are just excuses. It’s highly regrettable that instead of seriously analysing this issue and making sure that such incidents never happen again, we are hearing inconclusive explanations and statements that they don’t have anything to apologise for. Anyway, this is Turkey’s choice, not ours.”
Putin chooses his words carefully, always speaking forthrightly, in contrast to rogue NATO members, notably America, Britain (a US appendage) and Turkey.
Are lunatics in Washington behind virtually all these type major international incidents bent on starting WW III?
A Final Comment
Moscow’s sincere efforts to work constructively with Ankara failed. Erdogan didn’t reciprocate in kind – just the opposite, a major black mark against his rogue agenda, a high crime.
Sergey Lavrov explained bilateral Russian/Turkish relations will be seriously revised in the wake of what happened. Russian officials won’t visit Turkey or receive their counterparts in Moscow.
“We cannot (let what) happened (go) unanswered,” he stressed. It was “a planned provocation (by no means) unintentional…an obvious ambush.”
We know what top Russian officials said publicly. Imagine their private discussions given how justifiably angry they are about what happened.
How can Moscow have normal relations with any country actively supporting terrorist enemies it’s combating – especially Turkey and Washington!

Hitler and the Jews (must watch)

In this hilarious Israeli TV comic episode (The Jews Are Coming) ,  young Adolf Hitler meets three Jewish art masters at the Vienna’s Art Academy’s entry exams.  The young Austrian artist is mocked and abused.
Seemingly,  the Israeli comedy  ascribes Hitler’s Jew-hatred  to the Jewish master (Weiss) who humiliates the young artist.  The Jew master then send Hitler home to make hatred into a form of art.
This comic episode may suggest that within the Israeli universe, Hitler and Jew hatred should be considered a Jewish product…

Russia: Erdogan’s Son Real ISIS Oil Minister, Behind Su24 Shoot Down

Ankara defends ISIS, Turkish officials have financial interest in oil trade with group – PM Medvedev

Cheap Syrian oil that ISIL terrorists trafficked to Turkey may be the real reason for the attack on the Russian Su-24 bomber morning, November 24th. Reported LifeNews.

According to the newspaper, the son of Turkish President Bilal Erdogan linked to ISIL terrorists, and he controls the Syrian oil flows to Turkey.    It is the fact that the Russian aircraft carried out massive strikes on oil fields militants, the Turkish authorities became the last straw.

Many experts constantly say about the top of the Turkish authorities who cooperate with the ISIL militants  . In the media there were even photographs of the son-heir of the Turkish leader posing next to the leaders of the “Islamic state.”

“Turkey is deliberately interfering with the Russian military operation in Syria, since from this its territory ISIL transported to Turkey cheap Syrian oil, and Russian planes are destroying the columns of fuel trucks,” – says military expert, director of the Center for Strategic Market Ivan Konovalov.

Recall that the bombers struck powerful videoconferencing Russian air strike on the oil fields ISIL terrorists. For two days, Russian planes bombed oil storage, refinery and several columns of fuel trucks.

Some Turkish officials have ‘direct financial interest’ in the oil trade with the terrorist group Islamic State, Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev said as he detailed possible Russian retaliation to Turkey’s downing of a Russian warplane in Syria on Tuesday.
“Turkey’s actions are de facto protection of Islamic State,” Medvedev said, calling the group formerly known as ISIS by its new name.
“This is no surprise, considering the information we have about direct financial interest of some Turkish officials relating to the supply of oil products refined by plants controlled by ISIS.”

“The reckless and criminal actions of the Turkish authorities… have caused a dangerous escalation of relations between Russia and NATO, which cannot be justified rotection of state borders,” Medvedev said.
According to the PM, Russia is considering canceling several important projects with Turkey and barring Turkish companies from the Russian market. Russia has already recommended its citizens not to travel to Turkey, citing terrorist threats, resulting in several tourist operators withdrawing tours to Turkey from the market.’

Russia may further scrap a gas pipeline project, aimed at turning Turkey into a major transit country for Russian natural gas going to Europe, and the construction of the country’s first nuclear power plant.

Turkey shot down a Russian bomber over Syria on Tuesday, claiming the aircraft had violated Turkish airspace. Russia says no violation took place and considers the hostile act as ‘a stab in the back’ and direct assistance to terrorist forces in Syria.

IS has big money, hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars, from selling oil. In addition they are protected by the military of an entire nation. One can understand why they are acting so boldly and blatantly. Why they kill people in such atrocious ways. Why they commit terrorist acts across the world, including in the heart of Europe,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, after a Turkish F16 downed a Russian Su-24 jet near the Turkish-Syrian border.
Last October, the US Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen said Islamic State was earning $1 million a day from oil sales.

“According to our information, as of last month, ISIL [now more commonly known as ISIS] was selling oil at substantially discounted prices to a variety of middlemen, including some from Turkey, who then transported the oil to be resold. It also appears that some of the oil emanating from territory where ISIL operates has been sold to Kurds in Iraq, and then resold into Turkey,” he said.
According to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the middlemen in Turkey are not only entrepreneurs, but are Ankara officials. Turkey is protecting Islamic State because of…
“direct financial interest of some Turkish officials relating to the supply of oil products refined by plants controlled by ISIS.”
Russian political analyst Igor Yushkov from the National Energy Security Fund said Moscow’s anti-terror operation in Syria makes such business much more difficult.
“Nowadays the truck columns have to disperse and their payload has grown smaller. Before the operation buyers would visit the oilfields themselves, now they have had to organize a new cluster,” he told He added that oil extraction will decrease because ISIS lacks qualified specialists.
A member of the expert council of the Russian Oil Industry Union Eldar Kasayev said Islamic State is selling oil at $15–25 per barrel, which is much cheaper than the Brent benchmark, trading at $45-50.
“By reselling it, Ankara has the opportunity to earn extra income and continue to bomb the Kurds, saying its bombing radicals,” he said.


Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey’s President

bilal-erdogan-son-and his-petrol-boat-2

By Tyler Durden, Zerohedge ~ 

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words. Just earlier today, 24 hours after a Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president three years ago said “a short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack”, had this to say: “We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation” by Turkey.

But even that was tame compared to what Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).

As Sputnik transcribes, according to a press release from Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lavrov pointed out that, “by shooting down a Russian plane on a counter-terrorist mission of the Russian Aerospace Force in Syria, and one that did not violate Turkey’s airspace, the Turkish government has in effect sided with ISIS.

It was in this context when Lavrov added that “Turkey’s actions appear premeditated, planned, and undertaken with a specific objective.

More importantly, Lavrov pointed to Turkey’s role in the propping up the terror network through the oil trade. Per the Russian statement:
“The Russian Minister reminded his counterpart about Turkey’s involvement in the ISIS’ illegal trade in oil, which is transported via the area where the Russian plane was shot down, and about the terrorist infrastructure, arms and munitions depots and control centers that are also located there.”
Others reaffirmed Lavrov’s stance, such as retired French General Dominique Trinquand, who said that “Turkey is either not fighting ISIL at all or very little, and does not interfere with different types of smuggling that takes place on its border, be it oil, phosphate, cotton or people,” he said.

The reason we find this line of questioning fascinating is that just last week in the aftermath of the French terror attack but long before the Turkish downing of the Russian jet, we wrote about “The Most Important Question About ISIS That Nobody Is Asking” in which we asked who is the one “breaching every known law of funding terrorism when buying ISIS crude, almost certainly with the tacit approval by various “western alliance” governments, and why is it that these governments have allowed said middleman to continue funding ISIS for as long as it has?

Precisely one week later, in even more tragic circumstances, suddenly everyone is asking this question.

And while we patiently dig to find who the on and offshore “commodity trading” middleman are, who cart away ISIS oil to European and other international markets in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars, one name keeps popping up as the primary culprit of regional demand for the Islamic State’s “terrorist oil” – that of Turkish president Recep Erdogan’s son:Bilal Erdogan.

His very brief bio:
Necmettin Bilal Erdogan, commonly known as Bilal Erdogan (born 23 April 1980) is the third child of Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, the current President of Turkey.
After graduating from Kartal Imam Hatip High School in 1999, Bilal Erdogan moved to the US for undergraduate education. He also earned a Masters Degree in John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in 2004. After graduation, he served in the World Bank as intern for a while. He returned Turkey in 2006 and started to his business life. Bilal Erdogan is one of the three equal shareholders of “BMZ Group Denizcilik “, a marine transportation corporation.
Here is a recent picture of Bilal, shown in a photo from a Turkish 2014 article,which “asked why his ships are now in Syria”:

In the next few days, we will present a full breakdown of Bilal’s various business ventures, starting with his BMZ Group which is the name implicated most often in the smuggling of illegal Iraqi and Islamic State through to the western supply chain, but for now here is a brief, if very disturbing snapshot, of both father and son Erdogan by F. William Engdahl, one which should make everyone ask whether the son of Turkey’s president (and thus, the father) is the silent mastermind who has been responsible for converting millions of barrels of Syrian Oil into hundreds of millions of dollars of Islamic State revenue.


Erdogan’s Dirth Dangerous ISIS Games

By F. William Engdahl, posted originally in New Eastern Outlook:
bilal-erdogan-son-and his-petrol-boat

More and more details are coming to light revealing that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, variously known as ISIS, IS or Daesh, is being fed and kept alive by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish President and by his Turkish intelligence service, including MIT, the Turkish CIA. Turkey, as a result of Erdogan’s pursuit of what some call a Neo-Ottoman Empire fantasies that stretch all the way to China, Syria and Iraq, threatens not only to destroy Turkey but much of the Middle East if he continues on his present path.

In October 2014 US Vice President Joe Biden told a Harvard gathering that Erdogan’s regime was backing ISIS with “hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons…” Biden later apologized clearly for tactical reasons to get Erdo?an’s permission to use Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base for airstrikes against ISIS in Syria, but the dimensions of Erdogan’s backing for ISIS since revealed is far, far more than Biden hinted.

ISIS militants were trained by US, Israeli and now it emerges, by Turkish special forces at secret bases in Konya Province inside the Turkish border to Syria, over the past three yearsErdo?an’s involvement in ISIS goes much deeper. At a time when Washington, Saudi Arabia and even Qatar appear to have cut off their support for ISIS, they remaining amazingly durable. The reason appears to be the scale of the backing from Erdo?an and his fellow neo-Ottoman Sunni Islam Prime Minister, Ahmet Davuto?lu.

Nice Family Business

The prime source of money feeding ISIS these days is sale of Iraqi oil from the Mosul region oilfields where they maintain a stronghold. The son of Erdogan it seems is the man who makes the export sales of ISIS-controlled oil possible.

Bilal Erdogan owns several maritime companies. He has allegedly signed contracts with European operating companies to carry Iraqi stolen oil to different Asian countries. The Turkish government buys Iraqi plundered oil which is being produced from the Iraqi seized oil wells. Bilal Erdogan’s maritime companies own special wharfs in Beirut and Ceyhan ports that are transporting ISIS’ smuggled crude oil in Japan-bound oil tankers.

Gürsel Tekin vice-president of the Turkish Republican Peoples’ Party, CHP, declared in a recent Turkish media interview, “President Erdogan claims that according to international transportation conventions there is no legal infraction concerning Bilal’s illicit activities and his son is doing an ordinary business with the registered Japanese companies, but in fact Bilal Erdo?an is up to his neck in complicity with terrorism, but as long as his father holds office he will be immune from any judicial prosecution.” Tekin adds that Bilal’s maritime company doing the oil trades for ISIS, BMZ Ltd, is “a family business and president Erdogan’s close relatives hold shares in BMZ and they misused public funds and took illicit loans from Turkishbanks.”

In addition to son Bilal’s illegal and lucrative oil trading for ISIS, Sümeyye Erdogan, the daughter of the Turkish President apparently runs a secret hospital camp inside Turkey just over the Syrian border where Turkish army trucks daily being in scores of wounded ISIS Jihadists to be patched up and sent back to wage the bloody Jihad in Syria, according to the testimony of a nurse who was recruited to work there until it was discovered she was a member of the Alawite branch of Islam, the same as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad who Erdogan seems hell-bent on toppling.

Turkish citizen Ramazan Bagol, captured this month by Kurdish People’s Defence Units,YPG, as he attempted to join ISIS from Konya province, told his captors that said he was sent to ISIS by the ‘Ismailia Sect,’ a strict Turkish Islam sect reported to be tied to Recep Erdogan. Baol said the sect recruits members and provides logistic support to the radical Islamist organization. He added that the Sect gives jihad training in neighborhoods of Konya and sends those trained here to join ISIS gangs in Syria.

According to French geopolitical analyst, Thierry Meyssan, Recep Erdogan “organised the pillage of Syria, dismantled all the factories in Aleppo, the economic capital, and stole the machine-tools. Similarly, he organised the theft of archeological treasures and set up an international market in Antioch…with the help of General Benoît Puga, Chief of Staff for the Elysée, he organised a false-flag operation intended to provoke the launching of a war by the Atlantic Alliance – the chemical bombing of la Ghoutta in Damascus, inAugust 2013. “
Meyssan claims that the Syria strategy of Erdo?an was initially secretly developed in coordination with former French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé and Erdogan’s then Foreign Minister Ahmet Davuto?lu, in 2011, after Juppe won a hesitant Erdogan to the idea of supporting the attack on traditional Turkish ally Syria in return for a promise of French support for Turkish membership in the EU. France later backed out, leaving Erdogan to continue the Syrian bloodbath largely on his own using ISIS.
Gen. John R. Allen, an opponent of Obama’s Iran peace strategy, now US diplomatic envoy coordinating the coalition against the Islamic State, exceeded his authorized role after meeting with Erdogan and “promised to create a “no-fly zone” ninety miles wide, over Syrian territory, along the whole border with Turkey, supposedly intended to help Syrian refugees fleeing from their government, but in reality to apply the “Juppé-Wright plan”. The Turkish Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, revealed US support for the project on the TV channel A Haber by launching a bombing raid against the PKK.” Meyssan adds.

There are never winners in war and Erdogan’s war against Syria’s Assad demonstrates that in bold. Turkey and the world deserve better. Ahmet Davutoglu’s famous “Zero Problems With Neighbors” foreign policy has been turned into massive problems with all neighbors due to the foolish ambitions of Erdogan and his gang.
