During World War I, the keenest intelligence wars in the world’s history were taking place in the region from Lebanon to the Arabian Peninsula, from Iraq to Afghanistan. All powers of the time were pillaging the Ottoman geography; every inch of territory in this zone was witnessing the most ruthless power wars; the Ottoman administration was trying to resist against the British-French invasions.
Invasion and pillaging aside, the division of the region aside, the dispersion of the Ottoman Empire’s political authority aside; the intelligence wars in that period is like a lesson that needs to be read and learned by all.
The same intelligence wars a century later
Because today, the same intelligence wars are going on in the same region, same zone and same lands, at almost the same severity. If we want to learn and understand what is happening in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon or the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf, we need to carefully study that period.
While Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, the Arabian Peninsula, the Persian Gulf are facing the invasion of today’s center forces, global powers, those who built the “British Middle East” a century ago are trying to build an “American Middle East” in the same region today.
Turkey rises from the collapsed Ottoman Empire
The invasion of Iraq, the Syrian war, the terrorist corridor that is trying to be formed in the north of Syria and Iraq, plans to “siege” Turkey, the dirty war carried out through terrorist organizations are all for this reason. Former Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) leader Masoud Barzani’s referendum bid, the partnership between the U.S. and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party’s (PKK) Syrian affiliate Democratic Union Party (PYD), the U.S. and PKK’s cooperation with Daesh are all for this project.
The July 15 attack, attempts to crush the national resistance in Turkey, attempts to suffocate our country’s efforts to get back up on its feet a century later through internal and external attacks are all part of such a power struggle.
The Ottoman Empire had regressed back then, started to collapse, but it still tried to keep the region together until the very last moment. Today’s Turkey is a state that is trying to recover a divided region and, which, for this, is first trying to rebuild itself.
The same fight again, us on the front line again
We were on the front line of the fight against global powers back then too, and today, we on the front line of the front trying to resist the global powers that are trying to invade the entire region once again.
The only difference between a century ago and today: Back then we were a regressing, collapsing state. Today we are a strengthening, rising value and country.
The great actors of that time have become the regressing, wavering powers of today’s world. Hence, even though the fight and the power struggle is the same, this time the results will be different. Because history has taken a turn; power has shifted to the east of the Atlantic; the same struggle given by Turkey is given by many fronts around the world.
US-UK-Israel front will lose in Syria too
Coming to the more current times; the U.S.-U.K.-Israel restructuring our region, re-mapping it based on its own priorities, forming a new regime and an administration system accordingly; their plans to divide countries is no longer as easy as the days back when Afghanistan and Iraq were invaded. Regardless of how much they strive, they lost Afghanistan, they will lose it. Regardless of how much they try, they lost Iraq, they are going to lose it. Regardless of all the ugly methods they try, their plans in Syria are surfacing and will continue to surface.
The northern Iraq leg of the project that was going to take control over the area spanning the Mediterranean and the Iranian border, Turkey’s entire southern border, and turn it into a front, collapsed in a day. The game that was staged with Barzani’s referendum ended with their removal from Kirkuk within three hours. Of course the Turkey leg of the scenario, the leg to poison our people’s minds could not succeed as well this time round.
US-PKK-Daesh alliance, the world’s dirtiest relationship
The U.S. and Israel are going to face the same end in northern Syria. The new map they are trying to form through the PKK/PYD, the strategy aimed at turning the focus of all countries to fighting Daesh and opening room for the PKK ended in a fiasco.
Using Daesh as a camouflage to protect the PKK, to hide the strategy it is carrying out through the terrorist organization, sabotaging attacks targeting Daesh, secretly taking action with Daesh can no longer be hidden.
Today, the U.S.-PKK-Daesh partnership has surfaced as the world’s dirtiest relationship. From now on, the U.S.’s terror card will no longer mean anything, and as the days go by, its dirty relations through terrorism are going to be further revealed.
July 15, the terrorist zone: Two major intelligence operations
July 15 was the greatest intelligence operation of these powers in Turkey. The second major anti-Turkey intelligence operation is being carried out in northern Syria. This project also has legs on the inside and this is becoming exposed by the day.
All of those who are using the “Turkey is supporting Daesh” theory are all involved in this scenario and intelligence network. Now, as U.S.-Daesh relations are being revealed, the silence of these circles is extremely striking.
Talal Sillo: Turkey has the US’s Daesh file?
All of the operations carried out in this region by the U.S. and its allies are anti-Turkey. The Reza Zarrab case, which they carried out by copying the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ) files, and the file in Syria are directly related. The U.S., FETÖ, PKK, Daesh, the Zarrab case are all entirely compatible with internal political plans and the plans to build a terror zone in Syria; they are promoted using the same discourse. Hence, we need to pay extra attention to those who express this discourse through different justifications.
The case files prepared within the U.S. to push Turkey into a corner are part of the power fight in the region. The files brought by Talal Sillo, who was taken by Turkish intelligence the other day, will most likely present serious evidence concerning U.S.-terror relations. I believe this is an extremely disturbing situation for the U.S., which tied its hopes to the Zarrab case. Reciprocal intelligence wars are continuing to the utmost and will continue to do so.
They will abandon PKK and withdraw from Syria
However, after this stage, the U.S.’s military units have no chance of succeeding in northern Syria. The rapport between Turkey, Russia and Iran, will surprisingly negate their theories in this region. U.S. soldiers will likely quickly leave the region, abandoning the PKK/PYD.
For the first time since the 1991 Gulf War, a regional initiative has emerged. This initiative with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani may possibly end the Syria issue in the summit to be held in Sochi.
The U.S. and its allies have no chance of resisting this. They are going to try one last attack through the new front they established through the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia and Egypt. We need to be ready for such a surprise outburst these days.
US may be ‘embarrassed’ in Syria
As long as this initiative remains standing, there seems to be no other result but embarrassment for the U.S. in Syria. It may be held responsible of crimes such as controlling terrorist organizations, carrying out civilian massacres, implementing ethnic cleansing and demographic exile plans, attempting terrorist attacks against ally countries, and as a matter of fact, for crimes against humanity. U.S. military units’ partnership with Daesh and the PKK in Syria, especially in the northern regions, is going to be subject to investigations.
One more note:
The U.S.’s axis in the region changed when it targeted Turkey. Its greatest strategic mistake was to target Turkey, strike it with terrorist organizations. This will be the main reason behind its loss in the region.
