Turkey Actively Aids ISIS

Turkey Actively Aids ISIS

by Stephen Lendman

Turkey is the leading platform for launching ISIS attacks on Syria and Iraq - Washington, other NATO states, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Israel complicit in waging endless war.

Top UN officials fail to explain and denounce a US-led imperial project for unchallenged regional dominance. They share guilt through silence and complicity.

Iraq is a cauldron of endless US-sponsored violence, instability and chaos. In March 2011, Obama launched war on Syria. It rages out-of-control.

Ceasefire is pure fantasy. Farcical peace talks collapsed. Washington and its rogue partners want endless conflict to replace Syrian sovereignty with US-controlled tyranny.

Turkey supports ISIS - providing safe haven, weapons, munitions and other material support. 

Last December, Republican People’s Party (CHP) opposition member Eren Erden revealed evidence showing high-level regime involvement in smuggling materials used to make deadly sarin gas to ISIS fighters.

Russia accused Ankara of colluding in provocative criminal acts. ISIS and other terrorists move freely cross-border to and from Syria and Iraq.

Turkey is home base for aiding US-supported ISIS and other terrorist groups wage regional wars.

Erdem accused regime officials of collusion and coverup. He got access to tapped Ankara intelligence phone calls and documents showing thousands of ISIS fighters move cross-border to and from Syria daily.

Active regime support is provided. No efforts are made to apprehend known terrorists. Wounded fighters are treated in Turkish hospitals.

Erdem is being investigated for treason. If he loses parliamentary immunity, he’ll likely be prosecuted and imprisoned longterm. He risks assassination for exposing regime wrongdoing.

Little is explained about Israel’s involvement. The Iranian Alalalm News Network reported Mossad head Yossi Cohen met secretly with deputy Turkish foreign minister Feridun Sinirlioglu in Sweden.

Israel actively aids Turkish security officials wage war on Syria. US-led Western ones operate the same way.

Flashpoint conditions risk eruption of far greater conflict than ongoing regionally. America’s rage for unchallenged dominance is the greatest threat to world peace.
