Erdogan : ma non sarebbe ora di fermarlo ?
At a time when an ideologue of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is boasting about the creation
of a Greater Turkey that includes northern Greece and eastern Aegean islands, U.S. President Donald Trump and Germany
continue to support their Turkish allies in their aggression against Greece.
Metin Külünk, an ideologue of Erdogan's who is a Member of Parliament of the same ruling Justice and Development
Party (AKP), from the same youth movement Erdogan, and from the same province as Erdogan's parents, has gone
to Twitter to call for a Greater Turkey.
Külünk, which must be emphasized belongs to Erdogan's AKP and is a Member of Parliament, has called
for a Greater Turkey that includes large areas of northern Greece and the east Aegean islands, half
of Bulgaria, Cyprus and Armenia in its entirety, and large areas of Georgia, Iraq and Syria.
In a series of tweets, Külünk would praise the Seljuk's victory over the Byzantine Empire at Manzikert in 1071
that allowed the Asiatic Turks to enter Anatolia for the first time in history.
"Turkey has entered the 21st century with big moves with the spirit of 1071, it is progressing by taking big steps.
Today, the reason why the western world comes to us again is the reawakening of a nation that was put to sleep after 1938
on July 15 and opening up to Syria, the Mediterranean and Africa with its spirit of 1071," Külünk said on Twitter.
By "spirit of 1071," Külünk has effectively admitted that Turkey aims to militarily invade and dominate Syria,
the Mediterranean and Africa.
In his next Tweet, the Turkish Member of Parliament would say "The grandchildren of those who think that
they will take us out of Anatolia are trying to get us out of the Mediterranean today.
You have no doubt that they will get defeat in the Mediterranean.
The spirit of the Manzikert Victory is alive. Turkey's government and the need to fulfill the spirit of the
nation in every field."
The tweet was accompanied with a map of a Greater Turkey that shows northern Greece and the eastern Aegean islands
occupied by Turkey.
Despite the open announcement for conquest against Greece by an strong ideologue of Erdogan,
who belongs in the same political party and is a Member of Parliament, Trump and Germany continue to support
their Turkish allies by appeasing Ankara and equating Greece as an equal problem in the Mediterranean.
Erdo?an two days ago was again praised by Trump, this time at an event with an American pastor who was illegally
imprisoned and taken hostage in Turkey for over two years.
"I have to say, to me, President Erdogan was very good," Trump said to Pastor Andrew Brunson who was
facing decades in a Turkish prison on Erdo?an's orders.
This was preceded by former National Security Adviser to Trump, John Bolton, describing Trump's relationship with Erdogan
as a "bromance."
Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis held a telephone conversation with Trump on Wednesday night, where Trump only
asked for escalations to subside as if Greece was partially or equally responsible for the aggressive actions by Turkey.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavu?o?lu threatened Greece with use of force and said Turkey's response will
not be an accidental one, but a direct action with no hesitation, as reported by Greek City Times.
The remarks were delivered in a joint presser with visiting Germany Foreign Minister Heiko Maas who attempted
to mediate by just calling for dialogue despite his Turkish ally directly threatening Greece next to him.
"I want to make the following recommendation to Greece. Give up on being bratty. You talk like this with unconditional
and full EU support.
When not received, you blame those EU countries as well.
You have to understand that you will not get anywhere with this," he said.
"Especially do not put yourself at risk by following the encouragement of some countries.
In other words, if you make statements like 'we will defend our rights here,' or 'we will do exercises there,'
or if you take the wrong steps, we will not have an accidental response this time," Çavu?o?lu continued.
"Whatever is necessary, we do it without hesitation. So, do not get agitated, encouraged by these countries and act
with common sense," the Turkish Foreign Minister said.
Germany has been a centuries long ally with the Turks and for this reason is completely
unprepared to place sanctions on Turkey despite its constant threats against European Union member
Greece and its daily violations of Greece's air and maritime space.
Despite these provocations, a military build up and open calls to extend Turkey's borders into Greece,
Trump and Germany are just repeating the mantra of 'dialogue,' unwilling to openly blame or condemn
their Turkish allies.
In fact they equate that Greece is equally to blame for tensions in the East Mediterranean while they protect
Turkey from sanctions and/or other methods to contain its aggression and open calls for war against Greece.
