Philip Giraldi, is a former military intelligence officer and CIA operative. Having worked closed to both army intelligence and special operations with the Central Intelligence Agency, gave Giraldi a special understanding of how wars are fought and why nations and their leaders do things, how they do they and why the carry them out. According to Mr. Girardi, Turkey’s recent challenge of Russia is a clear example of a country that explicitly intends to derail the success gained by the Syrian government and Russia against the Islamic State. He says it is a complicated situation, but that given the history of the Turkish regime, there is no way that a Turkish army general or colonel would have himself ordered the shoot down of the Russian Su-24 fighter jet. The attack on the plane “had to come from the top down; from the president himself,” said Giraldi. “Knowing that, it had to be premeditated. It was something they were prepared to do.” The plan behind the shoot-down of the plane is much larger than the event itself. Giraldi says that the intention was, and still is, to stop the formation of an international coalition where Russia, the United States, France and Great Britain would be acting together. When asked why Turkey would seek entanglements with Russia, Giraldi explained that Erdogan has no intention to defeat ISIS. He added that Turkey’s only foreign policy goal is to prevent the formation of a neighbor state called Kurdistan and that anything that the Turkish government does is aimed at preventing that from happening. “The are fearful of a Kurdish state forming, taking Turkish, Syrian, Iraqi and Iranian territory.” Mr. Giraldi believes that Erdogan made a miscalculation. He believed that after attacking the Russian plane, NATO and the West in general, would come running to protect it from any kind of Russian aggression, but in practice, it was the opposite. The Turkish attack was met with skepticism and even rejection in many NATO member-nations. On the issue of Turkish collaboration with terrorist organizations including the flow of weapons, oil and terrorists to and from Syria, Giraldi explained that Turkey does not really want to stop ISIS. In fact, he says, Turkey is using the refugees coming from Syria and other countries in the region as a leverage to press Europe to aid its plans. “Supplying weapons to ISIS and Al-Nusra is Turkish policy,” says Giraldi. “In return, they are able to get the oil from Syria and resell it.” As I reported a few days ago, the Erdogan family is heavily involved in the commerce of stolen Syrian oil and consequently, is directly profiting from the conflict in Syria, Iraq and other civil wars in the region. “The Turks tend to see the conflict in very narrow terms, only in what related to their interests.” Not surprisingly, Giraldi confirmed that ISIS is not a threat to Turkey. This has been evident as the country has not suffered any attacks perpetrated by the terrorist organization. The same has happened with Israel. Giraldi explains that the recent attacks in Turkey, which the government says were committed by ISIS were actually carried out by Turkish intelligence to disguise government plans to support ISIS and get ahead on its domestic agenda. Establishing an Islamic State in Turkey Publicly, Turkey says it is fighting ISIS along with the US, France, Britain and the rest of the Arab coalition, but in private the story is very different. Mr. Giraldi believes that Turkey is actually attempting to form a true Islamic State within its own borders. The current Turkish government seeks to end the secular side of the Turkish State as we speak and Giraldi thinks Erdogan is behind that plan. “Erdogan is trying to destroy the traditional constitution of the Turkish nation and secular groups are deeply resentful of it.” Giraldi cites recent demonstrations all over Turkey as a sign that Erdogan will not be able to continue with his agenda for much longer. Advancing the formation of a political Islamic State in Turkey is both a tool and a goal, according to Giraldi’s assessment. “It is definitely a goal, but it is also a tool,” because Erdogan has used the fact that most of the population is poorly educated and deeply religious to manipulate them and gain their support. One of the most confusing situations on the current war in Syria and neighboring countries is the fact that multiple countries are said to be fighting ISIS while aiding ISIS. Right now, Russia, Iran, Iraq and Hezbollah are fighting ISIS on Syrian territory with the expressed permission of the Assad government. Meanwhile, the Arab coalition, the US, Britain and France are also allegedly bombing ISIS, but without Assad’s permission. As for the reason why Washington continues to support Turkey, despite its obvious support for ISIS, Giraldi says that the strongest reason is that the US needs permission from Turkey to use a military base to launch its attacks against Syria. There are no moderates One of the arguments given by Washington, especially neocons in Capitol Hill and current presidential candidates, to justify sending weapons and troops to Syria is that they are on a mission to train and arm moderate groups who oppose Assad. Despite abundant proof to the contrary, Washington continues to say that terrorist organizations such as Al-Nusra Front are part of those moderate groups. Recently, Saudi Arabia held […]
