Since 2010, Cameron, NATO, Merkel, Mogherini and the EU have all appeased the Turkish Islamic Jew-baiting dictator Recep Erdogan. Step by step, year by year, this madman has taken every last step predicted here to become a prototype Caliphate for the Muslim World. Typically, Washington has scurried away, and the EU is all over the place. This crisis demonstrates why, on every dimension, we are better off out of the geopolitical muddle.
La Capitanorina dei mollto grande Ecercito del Onione Europio Federica Mogherini issued this press statement yesterday on the events in Turkey:
Classic stuff: we condemned the coup, which was against creeping Islamism, because we thought maybe the other side might not be quite so friendly to NATO. Now we’re condemning Erdogan, because he’s revealed himself to be the Islamist dictator we secretly always knew he was, but now it’s too embarassing for even us to carry on being friends with him.
Only 18 months ago, Mogherini praised Recep Erdogan’s Turkey, saying it was “already well advanced on implementing several of the benchmarks in the Roadmap to develop its cooperation with the EU and all its Member States in the relevant areas, and launch and implement several essential legislative and administrative reforms.”
Before that, Clown Prince José Manuel Barroso (since transferred for a seven figure fee to Goldman Rangers) said on September 29, 2014, in Istanbul, “Turkey has also made progress in its alignment with the EU legislation even if we consider that the picture is mixed as regards the political criteria. . . . We welcome the fact that the new Government has tabled its EU Strategy, which is intended to reinvigorate Turkey’s work on its European path. We would like to see this clear European commitment on the Turkish side.”
There is an immediate, symptom-related moral to this ridiculous saga of incompetent appeasement: an old retired amateur bloke in the depths of rural France knew what to do with Erdogan four years ago, but the EU foreign policy and army top brass still haven’t a clue. Believe me, that is profoundly disturbing.
Way beyond that symptom, however, is the disease: the disease of US energy geopolitics driven by a protectionist oil business that has squashed every attempt to move beyond oil for 40 years. The disease of American global hegemony prodded by globalist ignorance about the Middle East. And the cancer of Goldman Sachs, the CIA and NATO really calling the shots in the European Union.
Mainstream news today ignores the disease and hides the symptoms. I – and thousands of online commentators all over the world – don’t.
Anyway, to those few remaining friends on the Left who haven’t written me off as a scumbigot racist for voting Leave just yet, this has been just one of 192 reasons why I put my cross in that box, not theirs.
Clearly, the British Left is happy to be on the side of US colonialism, growing EU militarism, fascist Islamism….oh yes, and Socialism.
