Turkiye's Ambitions Fully Revealed - Satiated

Reader comment on item: Turkey's Stance on NATO Expansion Is "Blackmail"
in response to reader comment: In Further Recognition of Turkiye's Emulation of Russian Incursions

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 29, 2022 at 17:42

As it turns out (it was always suspected) Turkish territorial ambitions in prosecuting the opposition groups that are border hopping in both Turkiye and Syrian northeastern no-man-lands, where fights on all fronts are constantly in action, are, and in continual play, the underlying motiviations for stonewalling NATO inclusion for Finland and Sweden desiring protections from Ukrainian styled incursions from the Russian. It worked.
The intention of protection from Russian incursion in the Balkan region is not changed; only the scope as we read of the warnings for Latvia, Lithuanian and Estonian securities issues; they will never escape their vulnerabilties, the Russian has already made issue of that with Ukranian styled threats. As mentioned elsewhere, the former Soviet lesson was not learned by those with Stalinist ideologies deeply embeded in the modern conscientiousness: its expression is therefore to be expected since allegiance is not all that easily assuaged. There is no sunset date on the horizon to be seen here.
