Erdogan Goes to Double-Front War in Syria and Lybia

On February 20, the world mass media reported the death of two more Turkish servicemen in Syria following clashes between opposition and Government forces in Idlib province. This case could break a new ground for wild-scale invasion of Turkish army to Syria – the move which was mentioned by Erdogan in his address to Parliament the day before.

Meanwhile, the Turkish president held an unsheduled meeting with the head of the Lybian Government of National Accord Fayez al-Sarraj in Istanbul. Erdogan is under longstanding promise to him to help fighting the Lybian National Army which controls the better half of the country.

Playing a double-front game, turkish leader strives after world’s recognition of enhanced Turkish role in Middle East and Northern Afrcia issues. It exhibits his ambitious plan to rekindle the former strength of the Ottoman state which was spreading from Persian Gulf to Gibraltar while being at the height of its power.

Being the adherent of political Islam, the Turkish president probably believes in resumption of another tradition of the Ottoman state – the proclamation of Grand Turk as caliph, the head of Muslim world Ummah. In pursuit of reaching his goals, Erdogan rests upon local Islamic forces, militants of radical terrorist organisations who are dreaming about creation of world Islamic State.

Both in Syria and Lybia the front forces of new Caliphate are formed by militants of islamist organiisations. According to different sources, there were redeployed nearly 3,5 thousand militants of Syrian rebels from Idlib province to support the Lybian Islamists of Sarraj. However it has led to an unexpected consequence: weakened syrian rebels became an easy target for Assad units who in a wild-scale offensive managed to regain control over large territories in Aleppo and Idlib provinces – giving back the control over 94 percent of country’s territory to Syrian president.

The same situation is ongoing in Lybia. Neither syrian rebels nor shipments of turkish weapons and equipment which ignore the UN Security Council’s arms embargo, can’t help lybian jihadists to make a difference. The Government of Sarraj controls the little part of the country near the capital. Moreover, the Lybians, who are weary of 9-year war, favors Haftar’s Lybian National Army.

Turkish army suffers losses in Lybia like as in Syria. There was news about death of number of turkish soldiers on February 18 following a strike by Haftar’s army at Tripoli’s seaport. Shippings in Lybian territorial waters which are under control of LNA’s aviation are posing more hazard to lives of Turkish servicemen especially having in mind Haftar’s readiness to restrict further shipments of turkish arms to Sarraj’s Govermnet.

Trying to go in wars in Syria and Lybia, Erdogan risks to loose both of them. Turkish economy, being exhausted by world crisis and syrian refugees, could break down under the Erdogan’s high-flying plans, and Turkish citizens could refuse to support his party during the next elections.

Erdogan has been playing strange games lately, it may cost him.

The Russian Defense Ministry says its Air Force launched strikes to repel a militant offensive against the Syrian Army in Idlib, which had sought to breach the government forces’ defensive lines with Turkey’s backing.

The militants launched a “massive offensive” southeast of the city of Idlib, using many armored vehicles, it was Turkish artillery that helped them breach the Syrian Army’s defenses in some areas.

Aerial footage published by the Russian Defense Ministry shows a Turkish self-propelled howitzer battery shelling the Syrian Army positions.

Video enclosed

At the request of Damascus, Russian Su-24 strike aircraft hit the advancing armed groups, helping Syrian forces to repel the offensive, destroying a tank and six infantry-fighting vehicles, among other hardware.

The Turkish forces stopped the artillery barrage after Moscow contacted Ankara. Turkish shelling left four Syrian soldiers injured. Moscow also once again called on Ankara to cease its support for terrorists in Idlib, and stop handing over weapons to them.

Erdogan and Turkey are irrelevant because they did not start the mess in Libya or Syria.
It was the US that illegally worked to get Qaddafi killed, and also tried to depose Assad, both of whom were the best leaders and should have been left alone.
There is no good solution now, and there is no point in blaming Erdogan for trying to do something with mess we created on his door step.

The Greatest Russian Since Peter the Great, Who Was Also a Little Rough Along the Edges


Russia has fought 13 major wars against Turkey. At first, Putin was continuing that tradition by encirclement, but then opportunistically decided to try an alliance, especially since the USA still gives asylum to an anti-Erdogan terrorist cleric. Now things seem to be going in reverse again; be sure that Putin will take advantage of any opportunity either way instead of being stuck on stupid.

The peak of that jihad was September 11, 1683. If someone like Osama bin Laden had been in charge back then, instead of a greedy Turkish general with no religious commitment, Islam would rule over all White nations now.
