Dear Gregoris Gregoriou , you write :

> The Turkish state , always aggressive towards its neighboring countries always being spoiled by Nato , always being generously supplied by Nato equipment and know-how , it is now being run by people who consider themselves "protectors" or even "patrons" of Islam. Turkey is ruled by people who have no fear of saying out loud, that they are going to create a new "Empire" that will embrace all muslim people of their region or even around the world!!!<

The privileged position Turkey enjoys is due solely and exclusively to one circumstance , viz. America's favor and protection. Turkey is in many respects America's Trojan horse. Whether you see its ( NATO!) troops landing on Cyprus or its grey wolves, jihadists and Gulenist missionaries in Bosnia, Kosovo, the Caucasus and Central Asia do their destructive and subversive work , you may be sure America's hand is guiding, arming and financing them there. Why is Gulen such a welcome guest in the US ? Why have all children of Erdogan been educated in the top US universities? Turkey's aggressions and genocides have never been condemned in America. You have very influential American scholars who either deny bluntly them or are clever enough to consistently keep silent on them. And on the other hand you have the octopus-like Turkish lobbying machine that has bought key figures in the US Military Industrial and Congressional Complex and through them it is guiding the US policy in Turkey's interests. Sibel Edmonds has described the workings of this unholy US-Turkish "alliance".

But what is more important about Turkey is that its past aggressions and aggressive ambitions for the future fit perfectly well in America's global agenda of chaos and Islamization which the US sees as useful tools in its struggle for global hegemony against the rising power of China. America needs Turkey not only as the primary customer of its inflated military industries. It needs it also to stir up Uighuristan or Xinjiang (Chinese Turkestan) and Central Asia with its Pan-Turkic and Islamist agenda and thus paralyze China's economy and undermine its political stability. Important American politicians speak openly of repeating the "successful" policy of the 1980-ies (the US-jihadist axis against the USSR) against the People's Republic of China. Turkey seems to have assumed the role of the Pakistan of the 1980-ies. Pakistan's Pushtoons are replaced now with Turkic peoples of Central Asia and Xinjiang.

How can one explain otherwise Turkey's impunity and erratic behavior with no US diplomats whining about its bad "human rights record" or lacking "democracy" as is America's mantra in hostile cases like Cuba , North Korea or Belorussia which all do have a much clearer record than America's darling from Ankara?

What I want to say is that next time we hear of Israel together with the US or alone delivering the latest military technology to Turkey to keep it fit and strong for its next war of aggression or denying the Armenian and Greek genocide, we may be sure that all of that has much more to do with Washington than with any other capital of the world because it serves well America's grand strategy. It goes without saying that it doe not necessarily serve that of its minor allies like Israel, Greece or Bulgaria which can't subvert Xinjang while Turkey can.
