Keeping an Eye on Turkey a Necessary if Aggravating Stance of Vigilance

Reader comment on item: Taking a Look at Turkey

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Dec 7, 2021 at 18:40

While the headlines may tout a highly necessary observance of hostile intentions coming from Teheran for the obvious reasons, it is certainly appropriate here to remind that Turkey is not innocent of its own inventions of empire in keeping a hand in the quasi-political interventions and interferences in the Levant, activities with 'Palestinian' insurrectionists; and even their own interaction with the Iranian Islamic Regime, even though contentious in its own right. Yet Turkey plays the West with their duplicitous antics of taking whatever advantage they can while toying with NATO objectives of how to keep Russian ambitions in view, especially now that the Ukraine, on a route to access the ME from a broader theater in the north can present a new dynamic and closer relational platform with the alliance of Iranian Islamic Regime in view as well.
Dr. Pipes is well versed in Turkey, as is amply demonstrated in his other topics on the subject and here.
What remains to be seen is how Turkey will eventually see its newer role of not wanting to be left on the sidelines when the trigger point of the upcoming tragedy is released.
