Quote from Engdahl analysis: What is interesting to watch now will be the foreign policy of Erdogan: Rapprochement with Russia, reopening talks on the Russia Turkish Stream gas pipeline to the Greek border. The simultaneous Erdogan rapprochement with Netanyahu. And most critical, Erdogan’s apparent agreement, part of Putin’s demands for resumption of ties, that Turkey cease efforts to topple Assad by covertly backing DAESH or other terrorists in Syria and training them in Turkey, selling their oil on the black market. This is a huge geopolitical defeat for Obama, probably the most incompetent President in American history (even though he has some serious competition for the title from George W. Bush and Clinton).
Washington has turned the creation of "non events" into a fine art. If they don't mention something in a press conference...and if the compliant mainstream media doesn't mention it buried under the rank compost that's shovelled on the mushroom citizenry on a 24/7 basis...then nothing is happening!
Oh sure, there's the usual weekend false flag or false flag hoax (barely distinguishable) and race-baiting police shoot-ups. But nukes being held hostage by a hostile foreign government, recently turned into a hornets' nest by US-organized regime change coup gone sideways?! NEVER HAPPENED!
Here is the latest from sputniknews.
DID TURKEY JUST THREATEN WAR WITH THE US AFTER FAILED COUP?
Turkish officials threaten to go to war with “any country” supporting exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen, the alleged mastermind of the coup plot, which would put the US right in Ankara’s crosshairs.Let me paraphrase an old saying: "A successful coup has many parents...while a failed one is an orphan". Yes, I think it works here. Why would anyone own up to such an incompetent, arrogant and hubristic endeavour as the attempted coup that took place in Turkey on Friday? Why...they're even trying to blame it on Erdogan himself...that he "staged" it...
Prime Minister Binali Yildirim threated to go to war with any country that would "stand by" exiled Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, a resident of Pennsylvania in the United States who Washington refuses to extradite citing a lack of evidence that he was behind the attempted overthrow of the Erdogan government.
This appears to be a pointed threat against the United States with an implicit demand that Washington must extradite Gulen or face Ankara’s wrath. The provocative comments came after Turkish Labor Minister Suleyman Soylu shocked the world by accusing the America of manufacturing the overthrow effort.
The situation for the United States is now as perilous as ever with Turkey in possession of roughly 90 US tactical nuclear weapons that are stored at the Incirlik Air Base. Turkish officials have blocked access to the air base and the commander in charge of securing those weapons was arrested on Sunday.
Another perhaps more apt metaphor is the visual of the duck....calmly gliding on the surface of a lake...while paddling furiously underneath the water. I think that's more like what's going on in Washington.
