Turkey Mobilizing: Media Manipulation, Provocation Or Reality?

Tyler Durden's picture


In the aftermath of the recent escalation in tensions between Turkey and Syria, whereby Syria was accused of hostile behavior for firing and taking down a Turkish fighter jet that supposedly spent at least 5 minutes in its airspace, today was a quiet day. At least until recently we saw the following footage in a clip uploaded to YouTube. Supposedly, Turkey has sent troop reinforcement to the Syrian border, after Erdogan's warning that soldiers approaching the border will be treated as targets, the clip explains, citing Turkish daily Zaman reported citing the Cihan news agency. This is unverified, nor is the statement that 15 military vehicles, including tanks and cannons, were dispatched to the border from Diyarbakir.

We are skeptical of the validity of the above especially since earlier today Russia said that Tuesday's Syrian shooting down of a Turkish warplane should not be seen as a provocation and warned world powers against using the incident to push for stronger action against Damascus. It was Moscow's first official reaction which made it quite clear that Russia will not just stand idly by awaiting for NATO to unilaterally take a decision to punish the middle eastern nation for daring to defend itself. But then again, this may be merely misreading Russia's resolve, in collaboration with China, to defend its own national strategic interests.

Finally, why we are concerned this may well be a provocation, but in the other direction, is that the only "news" of this development so far has come from the Times of Israel: a media outlet which the traders amongst you may say is "axes" vis-a-vis a particular outcome.

Large numbers of Turkish troops — including at least 15 long-range artillery pieces and tanks – moved to the Syrian frontier from the eastern city of Diyarbakir. A video published by the Turkish Cihan News Agency showed Turkish tanks being transported by carrier trucks toward the frontier.


The mobilization followed statements by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the Turkish military will respond to any future violation of its border by Syrian military elements.


“As awe-inspiring as Turkey’s friendship is, Turkey’s wrath is equally awe-inspiring,” Erdogan told the Turkish parliament on Tuesday.


“The rules of engagement of the Turkish Armed Forces have changed,” Erdogan said. “Any military element that approaches the Turkish border from Syria posing a security risk and danger will be regarded as a threat and treated as a military target.”


Erdogan closed his remarks with an especially harsh condemnation of Syrian President Bashar Assad: “Turkey and the Turkish people will continue to provide all support until the people of Syria have been saved from this tyrannical, murderous, bloody dictator and his gang.”

We will keep track of real developments surrounding this latest geopolitical risk flare up, and keep readers updated.

The Turks are a tenacious bunch there's a reason why their forefathers created an empire that lasted over 500 years. If you are in doubt of Turkish martial prowess consider this: 

When the Turks entered World War 1 they had the most backward army of all the great powers in material terms (e.g. non-existent weapons, ammo etc) by that war's end the Turks outlasted the Romanov Russian empire, the Austrian Hapsbourg empire whilst FIGHTING WAR OVER 5 DIFFERENT FRONTS and only capitulated to the Triple Entente around the same time as Germany and within a decade after that fought another war with the Greeks and handing their arses on a plate driving the last Greek out of sound quite young so here's a tip go ask one of your grandparents or great uncles who fought in the Korean war and ask them what they think of the Turk as a soldier and am pretty sure they'll have nothing but admiration for him.

I would be skeptical that Turkey is mobilizing, except perhaps at a very small scale.  And apparently Turkey's rhetoric is not all fire-and-brimstone.

What would Turkey's INTEREST be in starting a war with Syria?  What do they get out of a land war in Asia?  Nothing.

Maybe there is a little bit of shooting with Syria and Turkey, but no one cared until now.

No one really cared that little Georgia got stomped by Russia in a week or two, however stories of courage and battlefield valor on the part of Georgian forces were to be respected.

Why do you speak of abstract entities as if they're living beings? Until you stop this exercise in fantasy, you'll never come to understand the nature of this game, even though you're fully aware of it.

Just how many individuals within the the government of Turkey do you think determine this "interest" at any point in time? Now, how many of that number can influence the rest? That number is the key to your entire flawed paradigm of collectivist thinking.

That number is also the number of agent provocateurs needed to pull off the oldest trick in the book, "Let's you and him fight!"

That number may be as low as a single digit, and likely not more than three, yet you've equated it with the desires of nearly 73M others.

Like I said, nothing you didn't already know, yet you help them pull it off by ignoring what is really going on.

DCRB: your skepticism is well taken.

"Large numbers of Turkish troops — including at least 15 long-range artillery pieces and tanks – moved to the Syrian frontier from the eastern city of Diyarbakir."

... er ... Large Numbers?  Hardly, a battalion or two movin' around.  Maybe a skoshi' battalion task force, hardly what could invade Syria.

Turkey starts the war?  The NATO General Secretary disavows all knowledge of the situation.

Sacrificial reserve/training equipment. The Turks have several hundred Leopard2A4 in service, plus more than a few 2A5's. Sending a company's worth of M60A3 along with an artillery battery and some foot fodder is asking - nay, begging - to have your ass handed to you.

Fresh red meat for End Timers - be they Christian, Jewish, or Shiite.


That aside, which I tossed out as an aside, Syria is critical at this point in the ME. It pits Iran backing its Shiite brothers running the country, allied with Russia, who has no intention of losing its only Med naval base, and China, who is getting a great deal on Iranian oil these days, against NATO and Israel.


This is a very serious situation. Do the Turks think that NATO is going to back it if it comes down to facing off with Russia?


And what is the real deal between Obama and Putin - remember Obama asked Putin to understand he'd have more "freedom" of action after his presumed re-election.


And what exactly did Putin tell the Israelis when Putin visited to participate in a Remembrance for those Jews killed during the Great Patriotic War?


A war between the Great Powers over their vassals could change everything - none of it good.


And is this the distraction Obama needs to turn the slipping tide against him in the US?

If the photo of the F4 was in fact the actual model that was shot down then it was an F4-E not a F4-G. There was no ECM dome on board -- there was a 20mm gun. But all this is speculation that the photo was accurate -- which we have no way of knowing.

do yourself a favor and turn off the fox news... but for the NATO backed mercenaries operating in Syria, no death would be occuring at all.  Assad is no saint, but, this does not give Hillary and the NWO the right to back an armed uprising, murder civilians and try and pin it on the Assad government.  screw the NWO and its mindless slaves.

The left / right and liberal media / fox is all a fucking charade to give an appearance of non unity.  It's blatantly clear that D.C. power is on the same page when it comes to Emperial pursuits and the complete looting of this Nation and much of the world as well.  Get with the fucking program.  Nothing but smoke and mirrors with philisophical issues being utilized to give the appearance of Right vs. Left.

I've always been amazed how those stories work.  Because I honestly don't care what happens to Jews and Arabs arguing over the some of the most useless real estate imaginable half way around the planet.  And I sure as shit don't care what happens to their kids who would grow up to be just as insane and insufferable as their parents.

I don't care if it's a blogger making his/her first post. Where are the facts? Then we can debate whether it's legitimate or not. You guys are too dumb to even manufacture blogs with fake pictures. You still rely on legacy media for your central propaganda thrust accompanied with a few spot comments on blogs. You're way behind the curve.

Mark7 -

I see it as an observation that World Powers like Russia and China are just as anxious to get at the oil and maintain access to the region as the U.S. and Europe are.

Before the U.S. was in Afghanistan getting their young people killed, Russia was.

The care and compassion for the children of these countries extends only so far as a barrel of oil.

No doubt there are good peoople on both sides who care, but they aren't pulling the strings or making the money.

Speaking of oil access, does any of this parallel what the Russians are doing in the Arctic?

Keep in mind, the planes are easily taken down, although some missles will get through. But the submarine that launched off Vandenberg that no one seems to know anything about???

Tyler dude, there are more than 40.000 Syrian refugees living at camps in Turkey and if you check the news you'll find out that Assad's soldiers opened fire and killed both Turks and escaping refugees insideTurkish borders. If Turkey ment to start a war before they already had an excuse for it, but they didn't.

But it is too mainstream to support Turkey, which is getting huge numbers of Syrian refugees every day btw,  so some people here in ZH have to start writing these "CIA is there killing kids!" and other really twilight zone like comments!

I agree.

I think people cannot accept that one nation in the world may actually think to overthrow a dictator for the sake of misarable people suffering, not for fucking oil or we're bringing democracy shit.

You guys don't know that AKP which is the party in power in Turkey is a conservative muslim party. Most of the members including Erdogan believes that Muslims in the world have suffered enough from dictators and Western occupation. This might be their first chance to fuck an Arab dictator and establish an parlamentery Islamic regime withouth western help.

MARK7 There is one country on this planet that make Starlin, Mao, Hitler , look like rookies with the amount of people they have killed worldwide. In the 230 years of exsistance they have had 10 major wars and killed more people than any previous dictator. In fact if we got rid of that nation we might even get somewhere close to world peace, so why dont you run along and keep paying your 53 cent out of every dollar in tax  to kill brown people YOU are the problem, so untill you make a stand against this shit and stop paying taxes shut the fuck up.
