Incirlik Airbase Surrounded Amid Rumours of Second Turkish Coup Attempt.

In a stunning development in the wake of the failed US/NATO coup of mid July, credible sources are reporting that 7000 Turkish police have surrounded the NATO Incirlik Airbase in southern Turkey amid rumours of a second coup attempt.

The Failed Coup was not the end.

This development indicates several important things. One being that it is not over and those behind the previous attempt are not going to let it go at that, especially after the Turkish president has been berating and humiliating his “betters” since the epic blunder that now may see Turkey depart NATO.

Former NATO commander ‘behind failed coup against Erdogan’ – Turkish daily

Turkish papers have openly blamed senior US military figures both for financing and fomenting the coup making the situation one of complete humiliation for the US.

Such has been Erdogan’s hubris in the wake of the failed coup that he was almost creating a situation where a second attempt became inevitable. More level headed members of the Government appear to have recognised this danger and yesterday Erdogan announced that he was not going to pursue criminal charges against a number of journalists accused of the absurd “crime” of insulting the President.

Whether the former US General has been named was involved is something of a moot point at this stage. While many have claimed that the coup was a false flag this hypothesis does not stand up to scrutiny or logical appraisal.  It is a contemptible canard that ignores the facts.

Facts such as that the CIA media vehicle NBC America reported at the start of the coup that Erdogan had fled Turkey and was seeking asylum in Germany.

That was a classic piece of agency disinformation designed to destroy the morale of Erdogan supporters by presenting them with a fait a compli.

That alone ends the debate about a false flag coup for any with a single functioning synapse because it would be hopelessly naive to believe that NBC made an honest mistake. They do not work like that. So either Erdogan is a Machiavellian genius (he clearly is not) or the NBC were performing their customary role as leading liar on behalf of the Empire. (This is not to single them out, ABC, CBS and Fox all serve the same purpose)

In addition, lesser vehicles of US intelligence were pushing completely dishonest stories in the preceding week, stories known to be lies to the people writing them. Veterans Today came out with a story claiming that Turkey had used nuclear weapons against the Kurds in northern Syria in late 2014.

It was a lie and they knew it was a lie, they had reported on the US tactical nuclear strike in the week it happened,

There were not even any Turkish airstrikes in Syria at that time, nor any accusation of any Turkish Airstrike.  They used a video still to pursue their false claim, but inexplicably failed to provide any video. The reason for this was rather clear, in the video the ISIS flag is visible on the hill before the bomb hits!

That is how much contempt these people have for the audience.  It is very sad to see the disinformation filter down to those who lack all reason and logic and thus simply repeat the party line.

Alexandr Dugin makes the point far more eloquently.

Dugin’s guideline – The Turkish coup and American disinformation

Erdogan, Russia Rising and the US in terminal decline?

To describe Erdogan as a flawed figure would be a considerable understatement. He is prone to demagoguery,  corrupt, authoritarian and shameless. But that is not the point, Erdogan is the leader of Turkey, he is Turkey’s issue and the US have done themselves immeasurable damage with these cataclysmic shenanigans.

The whole fiasco  underlines the contrast between a rising Russia and a US in catastrophic decline across the Middle East as decades of lies and double dealing come home to roost.
