Now that is a “coincidence” …
Just a day ago somebody has sent me an interesting ebook.
The book is not available in English and I’ve only ‘scanned’ through it so far.
More on that down below for those who are interested.
“There’s a saying, ‘if there’s peace, it will start from Cizre, and if there’s war, it will start from here as well.’ And we can say we have a civil war in Turkey.”
– “We Have A Civil War”: Inside Turkey’s Descent Into Political, Social, And Economic Chaos (ZeroHedge, Aug 8, 2015):
Deflecting criticism surrounding Ankara’s anti-terror air campaign, Turkey’s foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu last week told state television that strikes against ISIS targets would pick up once the US had its resources in place at Incirlik which will supposedly serve as a hub for a new “comprehensive battle.”
Turkey has had a difficult time explaining why, after obtaining NATO support for a new offensive campaign to root out “terrorists”, its efforts have concentrated almost solely on the PKK and not on ISIS. As we’ve discussed in great detail (here, here, and here), and as the entire world is now acutely aware, Ankara’s newfound zeal for eradicating ISIS is nothing more than a cover for its efforts to undermine support for the PKK ahead of snap elections where President Tayyip Erdogan hopes to win back AKP’s absolute majority in parliament which it lost last month for the first time in 12 years.
