This is by that "Spengler" feller. I thought it was interesting.
Contain the Obamadork?
I gladly give the Obamadork to anyone or anything that wants it.
Please, take it.
If Russia can prevent Zer0 and the Marxist Rats from using Turkey as a proxy aggressor supporting the Muslim Brotherhood's insurrection in Syria, Zer0 and the world Caliphate are in serious trouble. Note that the Russians are using their economic clout as the primary "weapon" to convince Turkey. They probably learned it from Reagan.
The Kenyan Muslim may panic and phony up a fictitious Syrian Tonkin Gulf incident to justify an attack on Assad, Russian or Chinese assets.
War for election day, the Chicago way.
It could also create a weird alliance between Saudia Arabia and Iran, as both of these states fear Al Qaeda.
Spengler is absolutely wrong here. Turkey under the Islamic Welfare Party’s Erdogan is not anti-Muslims Brotherhood. Turkey all but went to war to help the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda take Syria. It armed teh rebels, gave the sanctuary, and provoked a border clash. the Gullen Movement and AKP only differ with the Muslim Brotherhood over which Islamist group gets to create and lead the new Caliphate. The AKP want ti to be in Instanbul again, and the Arabs in the Muslim Brotherhood look to Jerusalem, if not Mecca.
Turkish-Saudi-Russian sounds just like Dog-Cat-Rat alliance.
In short: bullcrap.
The analysis draws poor conclusions in my opinion. The Turkish leadership is part of the AKP which is in itself an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. I don’t think the fear of the MB or Obama’s support for them has anything to do with the Turkish stance.
What they see around them is a Europe that is falling apart, doesn’t have enough money to buy the stuff that Turkey is manufacturing, let alone being able to invest in the next generation of defense infrastructure that can protect Turkey. On the other hand, the Chinese (especially) and the Russians are offering access to markets, oil and gas and more reliable alliance than NATO and the west which happily sunk Egypt into chaos.
