“Any encroachment into Syria by military forces from inside Turkey will be taken as a military encroachment by Turkey on the Russian motherland” (a statement never made, a promise never kept by Putin)
According to Syria’s President Assad, 5000 “jihadists” have entered Syria through Turkey over the past 3 weeks and have begun operations in Latakia Province. There, government forces are being pushed back despite today’s sorties flown by medium bombers directly out of Russia and increased fighter bomber coverage.
Moreover, reports on the ground indicate that the units entering Turkey are increasingly Turkish army. There, a force of tens of thousands are being trained and equipped to masquerade as jihadist fighters, as “Turkmen” fighting at the side of the Free Syrian Army and their al Qaeda masters.
While this goes on, a CIA leak regarding operations inside Afghanistan by Turkey show that Erdogan and Gulen, “blood enemies,” are working side by side with ISIS and the Northern Alliance led corrupt Kabul regime against the Afghan freedom fighters.
This appears to be not only a defense of the CIA’s drug operations which are shared with Erdogan, whose stranglehold on the world’s heroin supply was broken by Afghanistan, but a move against expanded Russian influence in Afghanistan as well.
What is demonstrated in Afghanistan as nowhere else is the strong connection between the CIA, al Qaeda, heroin smuggling through Turkey and Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo and the obvious fabrication of the recent Turkish coup blamed on Erdogan’s ISIS partner in Afghanistan, Gulen, the CIA operative.
We note that both Sibel Edmonds and Alex Jones are enemies of Gulen but supporters of Erdogan. A vision test perhaps? What does this tell us?
