by Jay Dyer, Katehon:
As with so many CIA-backed leaders, tyrants and despots, once your usefulness to Washington and Langley expires or your policies go off script, a coup or regime change magically emerges. With Turkey’s Erdogan, we have seen these familiar patterns as NATO and its globalist backers are more and more revealed to be aggressors against Eurasian interests. Indeed, it was Brzezinski himself who wrote in his Grand Chessboard that control of Eurasia is key to control of the globe:
“… But in the meantime, it is imperative that no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and thus of also challenging America. The formulation of a comprehensive and integrated Eurasian geostrategy is therefore the purpose of this book.” (p. xiv)
“In that context, how America ‘manages’ Eurasia is critical. A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world’s three most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa’s subordination, rendering the Western Hemisphere and Oceania (Australia) geopolitically peripheral to the world’s central continent. About 75 per cent of the world’s people live in Eurasia, and most of the world’s physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil. Eurasia accounts for about three-fourths of the world’s known energy resources.” (p.31)
“The momentum of Asia’s economic development is already generating massive pressures for the exploration and exploitation of new sources of energy and the Central Asian region and the Caspian Sea basin are known to contain reserves of natural gas and oil that dwarf those of Kuwait, the Gulf of Mexico, or the North Sea.” (p.125)
Indeed, the pipeline projects through these regions dictate much of the geopolitical kerfuffle. Turkey’s pivot away from NATO towards Russia is precisely the reason for the coup, as the CIA and Hillary Clinton-connected charter school mastermind, Fethullah Gulen. The Gulenists and their western backers, formerly allied with Erdogan and the Kemalists, now oppose the AKP and sought, through apparent U.S. aid, to enact a regime change before Turkish second thoughts on NATO. As Katehon explains:
“The attempt at a military coup was undertaken by the supporters of the Islamist leader Fethullah Gulen and his movement “Khizmat”. Gülen lives in Pennsylvania in the United States and cooperates with US intelligence agencies. He is known as the main opponent of Erdogan, who was formerly his ally. It was Gulen’s structures that stood behind the notorious “Ergenekon” case when thousands of high-ranking military men were thrown in jail, including the entire leadership of the Turkish General Staff.
Gulen’s network acted on orders from the US once the top brass Kemalists, whose ideologue was the prominent politician Dogu Perincek, raised the issue of radically accelerating Turkey’s course of rapprochement with Russia, Iran and China, and even withdrawing from NATO. Gülen’s structure penetrated up to the very top echelon of the government and intelligence services. Erdogan understood the danger of this sect only at the last moment, when Gulenists, once again on US orders, attempted to carry out a color revolution on Taksim Square by trying to unite Kemalists, liberals and everybody opposing Erdogan. The following purges, however, did not liquidate the whole structure.”
Two key indicators of the coup being western-backed are as follows: One, the immediate western media attempt to paint the entire operation as Erdogan’s own “false flag,” suggesting a targeted mass media psy op as, in one accord, the entire western media made an about face from their earlier position of stressing the coup as real. Second, the talks of reconciliation with Syria and the relation to a “second Israel” to be found in the Kurds. Following the coup, western media also attempted to utilize its targeted, limited hangout leak engine WikiLeaks, to damage Erdogan. None of this is meant to suggest Erdogan is a saint, but rather his position between two power blocs leaves him on the horns of a dilemma. Andrew Korybko comments:
