Turkey’s Blind Eye Toward the Islamic State

Podcast—the enemy of your enemy is not always your friend

Turkey is a member of NATO, an American ally and a bulwark against the broiling chaos of the Middle East. That’s the story at least. The truth is far more complicated. Recently, U.S. Pres. Donald Trump approved a plan to arm the YPG—Kurdish fighters whose territory spreads across northern Syria. No one likes Daesh, and the Kurds have done an incredible job pushing back against the religious zealots.

But Turkey has a venomous relationship with the YPG, and Turkish Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly called them terrorists. Worse, there’s good evidence that Turkey is helping, or at least turning a blind eye to, Islamic State activity on its border.

This week on War College, war correspondent Norma Costello walks us through the complicated history of the Kurds, Turkey and Islamic State. According to Costello, the state-sponsored violence against the Kurds in southeast Turkey is one of the great unreported tragedies of the 21st century, and that Erdogan’s support of Islamic State is a calculated strategy to suppress the Kurds in Turkey.

So what is the evidence? You keep posting links to people claiming to have evidence, I am yet to see the evidence. It's amazing how normally you wouldn't trust a "high ranking Turkish official" as far as you can throw him but as soon as he starts saying things that fit your perceptions the guy is now trust worthy right? 🤣


I can't believe an American is going to sit there and accuse Turkey of supporting IS. IS is a result of American war mongering, recieved American training and is fighting with American weapons... some of which we know was "accidentally" dropped on their positions.

As for turning a blind eye, Turkey was the first nation calling for safezones. It would of stopped the refugee crisis from happening and it would of stopped the IS fighters flooding in FROM EUROPE. Why can they make 99% of the journey and not be anyones problem but once they land in Turkey, Turkey is soley responsible for them? Again safezones which Turkey was pushing for hard and which the US refused to accept would of stopped all this.


Then again in the past you have also blamed Turkey for Libya and Iraq which as an American is just shameless.

CharlieTurk:

Thanks for bringing to the main forum the typical Turkish bullsh1t reserved only for the G&T Forum. You think an ex Turkish police chief, ex-ISIS members, the Can Dundar revelation of the protected MIT arms shipment posing as humanitarian aid, the articles of Aaron Stein showing Turkish security services ignored ISIS cells till they got too big to track easily and started making attacks in Turkey are nothing?

Lol. You just got rekted.

I'll ask again, what is the physical evidence? Simple question. I don't support Erdo or any of the main political parties in Turkey and wouldn't put it past akp of doing what is claimed but no one has actually provided any hard evidence that this is the case as far as I can tell.

Charlieturd apparently will pretend Turkey never assisted ISIS and Al-qaeda just because the TR government hated Assad and Kurds so much, until a kangaroo AKP backed court finds evidence or the same cynical AKP politicians who implemented that policy own up to it...

Probably in 25 years when most dumb Turks forget, we will have memoirs of high ranking AKP members about how their policies turned Turkey into the region's Pakistan, a safe haven for terrorists in order to strike out at neighboring countries. Usually criminals don't fess up to their crimes until it is too late to punish them.

The American analyst Daniel Pipes has also compiled alot of articles showing the collusion of Turkish security forces with ISIS:
http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/2014/06 ... t-for-isis

Turkey only fought ISIS when ISIS became so much of a problem for the West that they started massively arming and supporting the Kurds to deal with ISIS.

Charlieturd, you are the one switching topics like a mofo all the time. I gave as concrete proof as can be given without AKP criminals admitting that they assisted Al Qaeda and ISIS, which duh, as good criminals they are not gonna do.

In other words you gave hearsay. No leaked emails? Pictures? Video footage? Between Russian, US and Euro satellites and other surveillance tech no one has anything?? But it's good enough for you as long as it fits your prejudices.

It is much more than hearsay, but no one cares about the opinions of biased ultra-nationalist diaspora Turks. If you look all around the web Turkey/Turks have a well earned reputation as ISIS - Al Qaeda supporters while the Kurdish National Movement has the reputation of being the solution to ISIS. Which is why even the USA is convinced and arming the YPG while Turkey b1tches and throws fits.

Lol there it is! 🤣



If I look around the web I can find anything sh;t for brains.


As for the myth about Kurdish fighters:

https://www.wired.com/2017/03/anarchist ... sis-syria/


They just move into areas the US has leveled. The only real action they see is if IS manages a surprise attack on their positions.



As for why they are really supporting the Kurds:

@nighthawk:

Turks are even funnier and more hypocritical than that. According to Turks it is impossible for Turks, Turkey or Turkish nationalism which are all very, very, off the European charts racist to be racist:

http://links.org.au/no-racism-here-mode ... l-identity

We try to confront them in this thread on the G&T thread on that myth:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/248068/t ... 500046929/
They all support the Turks cannot be racist myth...

Further did you also know Turks cannot be imperialist? This is a myth I exploded in my blog:
http://koreaofmideast.blogspot.com/2016 ... it-is.html

.... Recently during a speech mourning the anniversary of the long passed death of Mustafa Kemal, the founder of modern Turkey, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated:

... that Turkey never had designs on the lands of other countries.

"Today, visit anywhere in Syria, Iraq, North Africa, the Middle East or the Balkans, and ask the people there their opinions of Turkey, and you will see no one mentions colony, invasion, oppression or massacres alongside Turkey," Erdogan said.

"Instead, you hear the symbolic call, 'Truehearted Turks here again!’" the president said, adding that Turkish people accept all people living in the same land as brothers and sisters without any discrimination based on religion or race.

...

This is an excerpt from an old Turkish schoolbook from 1977, translated by David Davidian[1] and archived on a now defunct Geocities page:

The want to dominate is an instinct. It exists in a human as an unconscious force. This instinct at the same time is a means to exploit. The inclination of some nations to exploit in this manner is because they lack "pride of prince (bey)" that exists among the Turks. The "pride of prince" is not only a simple psychological state for an opportunity to brag. Its main characteristic is protecting (those under one's domination) without expecting anything in return. The foundation of this is loving the people under one's domination.

...
Basically anything negative that you can name:
According to most Turks it is not possible for the noble Turkish blood to have those negative traits... Then they will point figures at Greece, Belgium, Israel, USA, the moon, the stars, the Galatic Empire of Star Wars, etc.

Turks:
- The Ottoman empire was good
- There was no Armenian genocide
- Turkey does not actively support IS





-The Ottoman empire treated Turks pretty poorly, but still compared to their contemporaries the Ottomans were not so bad.

-There is a debates forum now(don't think it has been used), I will be happy to take you up on any challenge you have regarding the Armenian "genocide".


-All I am asking for is some sort of solid evidence. There are US senators admitting that the US is responsible for IS, reports that the US does not keep track of its weapons in the ME, news that the US has dropped weapons and ammo stores on IS locations "accidentally", leaked emails etc.

Turkey is supporting FSA which I am against but the FSA has fought and taken land from IS, Turkey doesn't have the skill nor the resources to fund both IS and FSA against each other while at the same time sending in our own troops.

So you tell me Eric, why should I believe that Turkey is actively supporting IS when they clearly get all the support they need from the US and you Euros? What do you base your belief on?

Lads the whole of NATO turned a blind eye to ISIS.

There is a recording of John Kerry f**kin saying it like.

Russia went in and basically did more damage to ISIS in a week than the whole of NATO did in 2 years.

Turkey’s Blind Eye Toward the Islamic State

Podcast—the enemy of your enemy is not always your friend

Turkey is a member of NATO, an American ally and a bulwark against the broiling chaos of the Middle East. That’s the story at least. The truth is far more complicated. Recently, U.S. Pres. Donald Trump approved a plan to arm the YPG—Kurdish fighters whose territory spreads across northern Syria. No one likes Daesh, and the Kurds have done an incredible job pushing back against the religious zealots.

But Turkey has a venomous relationship with the YPG, and Turkish Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly called them terrorists. Worse, there’s good evidence that Turkey is helping, or at least turning a blind eye to, Islamic State activity on its border.

This week on War College, war correspondent Norma Costello walks us through the complicated history of the Kurds, Turkey and Islamic State. According to Costello, the state-sponsored violence against the Kurds in southeast Turkey is one of the great unreported tragedies of the 21st century, and that Erdogan’s support of Islamic State is a calculated strategy to suppress the Kurds in Turkey.

I also forgot to mention the Redhack leaks that showed that Erdogan's son in law was involved in transiting ISIS oil to Turkey:
