Mega-Terrorist Turkey Accuses Finland and Sweden of Supporting Terrorists

[ Editor’s Note: Turkey has been one of NATO’s junkyard dogs, always available to be unleashed on its neighbors to create the required chaos to give other NATO members an excuse to intervene in regional or specific country affairs for influence and/or profit.

This includes using proxy terrorist formations trained and even led by NATO veterans moonlighting as terrorist trainers, including the US, as it has long done inside Syrian and Iraq, with thousands of civilian casualties as a result, and of course no apologies given.

And let’s not forget the economic damage, a terrorist act in itself and a warning to others of what can befall them when alleged ‘free world’ leading countries get the urge to go hunting, feeling that their militaries need some practice. Maybe their respective defense industries would like some new orders so they have more cash to donate to political campaigns in the next election.

And there are always the politicians who want publicity on how tough they are in dealing with foreign ‘threats’, when those targeted are often the victims.

It has been a ruthless business for far too long, and one that the UN has all but given up doing anything about, now wanting to endanger their paychecks being put at risk… Jim W. Dean ]

Turkey, a infamous state sponsor of worldwide terrorism, has the sheer gall to accuse Finland and Sweden of supporting terrorists. Much more weird: Neither Finland, Sweden, the U.S., NATO, EU, nor any nation or chief has, to my data, identified Ankara’s evident hypocrisy.

Turkey claims that Finland and Sweden host members of the PKK, the militant Kurdish group that the U.S. and EU regard as terrorists.  Each Nordic nations deny the cost.

Like many Europeans, nonetheless, Finns and Swedes sympathize with Kurds.  Turkey has lengthy repressed and ethnically cleansed the latter. Regardless, Ankara is obstructing uber-civilized Finland and Sweden from becoming a member of NATO.

Satirically, Turkey — autocratic, infamously violative of human rights, and systemically corrupt — could be unqualified to hitch NATO immediately have been it not already a member. The purpose is, who’s Turkey to accuse others of terrorism?

Mega-Terrorist Turkey

No goal analyst disputes Turkey’s longtime sponsorship of ISIS and different terrorist teams.

  • Turkey’s counterterrorism chief from 2010-2013, Ahmet S. Yayla, acknowledged in 2020 that “Turkey was a central hub for … over 50,000 ISIS overseas fighters, and the foremost supply of ISIS logistical supplies [including] IEDs, making Turkey and ISIS virtually allies.”
  • Terrorism skilled/State Division adviser David L. Phillips directs Columbia College’s Peace-building and Human Rights Program. It has confirmed Turkey’s alliance with ISIS: ISIS-Turkey Hyperlinks (2014) and Turkey-ISIS Oil Commerce (2015-2016).
  • The NY Occasions (2014): “Western intelligence officers … observe ISIS oil shipments … into Turkey,” [which has] failed “to assist choke off the oil commerce.”
  • In Turkey: A State Sponsor of Terrorism?(2021), Phillips once more paperwork Ankara’s patronage of terrorists.  If a “non-NATO nation behaved like Turkey, it could warrant designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism,” like Iran and North Korea.
  • The U.S. State and Treasury Departments (2021) say Turkey is a monetary hub for ISIS/al-Qaeda. But Washington has penalized only some Turkish people and firms, with minimal impact.
  • In 2020, Turkey transportedhundreds of terrorist mercenaries to Azerbaijan to assault Armenian-populated Artsakh/Nagorno-Karabagh and Armenia.  These included warfare legal and former ISIS commander Sayf Balud and commanders of the Sultan Murad Brigade — a number of of them murderers and rapists.

So why aren’t the U.S./NATO/EU exposing Turkey’s terrorism hypocrisy over Finland/Sweden? It’s partly as a result of America and Europe are schizophrenic about ISIS and comparable teams.

America’s Phony International Struggle on Terrorism

Whereas the West loudly condemns and sometimes battles such teams, it generally deems them to be militarily helpful.

The State Division, as an example, quietly needs Turkish-backed terrorists (e.g. The Free Syrian Military (FSA)/Syrian Nationwide Military (SNA)) to assist depose President Assad and push Russia out of Syria.  There’s no different rationalization for our nation’s tolerance of Ankara’s terrorist sponsorships.  Assad can be aligned with Shiite powers that America loathes: Iran and Hezbollah.

‘The enemy (Turkish-backed terrorists) of our (America’s) enemies (Assad/Russia/Iran/Hezbollah) is our good friend.’ Thus, America repeatedly ignores Turkey’s help of terrorists and its invasions, occupation, and ethnic cleaning of northern Syria.

The U.S. dislikes, nonetheless, Turkey’s focusing on the pro-American, anti-ISIS, Kurdish YPG in Syria.  Turkey insists that the YPG is an arm of the PKK.  Nevertheless, America often lets Ankara have its means with Kurds anyway.

Elsewhere, the U.S. Home and European Parliament criticized Turkey’s utilizing terrorists in opposition to Armenians in 2020.  But the West took no motion in opposition to Turkey as a result of Armenia, a Russian ally, misplaced the warfare.  This superior America’s and NATO’s technique of penetrating the Caucasus.

In 2021, the Senate International Relations Committee brazenly quizzed Below Secretary of State Victoria Nuland about Turkey’s deploying terrorists in Azerbaijan.  She refused to reply in public, once more unmasking Washington’s tacit help for Turkish-backed terrorists.

Even when America and Europe genuinely disagree with Ankara’s calls for/threats, they hardly ever push again with their personal counter-demands/counter-threats.

Western Submissiveness

Turkey’s nonstop, unhinged mood tantrums have at all times psychologically disarmed the West.  Turks know that and exploit it. And, regardless of the boasts of pro-Turkish sycophants, Turkey is not extra necessary, and definitely no more highly effective, than the U.S./NATO/EU.

As an alternative of pushing again in opposition to Turkey over the Finland/Sweden fuss, NATO Secretary-Normal Jens Stoltenberg spinelessly implores us to empathize with Ankara’s calls for.  In the meantime, Finnish and Swedish delegations have scampered off to Ankara to prostrate themselves earlier than His Royal Highness, King Erdogan.

American Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Dr. Michael Rubin suggests as an alternative that NATO threaten to ban Turkish Airways, damage Turkey’s already battered economic system, and legitimately withhold sure categorised paperwork/intelligence from Ankara.

Solely hardly ever does the West counter Turkish mischief.  Turkey has been — quickly, anyway — kicked out of America’s F-35 jet program as a result of it purchased Russia’s S-400 missiles.  Additionally, by making use of financial penalties on Turkey, Washington gained Pastor Andrew Brunson’s launch in 2018.  However these occurred solely as a result of the Pentagon unequivocally insisted on it and since Evangelicals pressured the White Home.

Whether or not it’s Turkey threatening Greek islands, making illegitimate claims over Mediterranean Sea vitality deposits, threatening to launch hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees into Europe, or numerous different examples of bullying, Western capitals habitually appease Ankara.

Why ought to our (and NATO’s) servicemen and servicewomen spill their blood preventing a largely phony International Struggle on Terrorism, particularly when NATO member Turkey outright helps terrorism?

Frankly, in terms of Turkey, Western international locations behave like weaklings.  What’s extra, they don’t even understand it.
