Taking Advantage of #Turkey’s Current Volatile Status #RandCorporation Stirs the Pot by Forecasting a “Coming Coup” against current #AKP #Erdogan Gov. The Timing of their report: very telling. - - -… via @ahramonline
Is this a new attempt by the #DeepState? Or is it indirectly bolstering the current admin in #Turkey knowing very well that issuing this report & reviving the #Coup Scare Tactic would unite all sides in support 4 the current Turkish Gov?… via @ahramonline
Because there are 2 ways to look at this: 1- Taking advantage of current volatile state of #Turkey (Syria, Libya, Falling out with #Russia, economic downturn, etc) & going for jugular with an outside-designed #coup; or, 2- Indirectly support/bolster it using reverse psychology

1/In #Idlib recently, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani spoke with @CrisisGroup about how his group, Hei'at Tahrir al-Sham #HTS, is adjusting to the changing realities on the ground in the face of a #Syrian regime offensive and an intensifying humanitarian crisis.
2/Jolani claims that #HTS has forsworn transnational jihadist ambitions and is readying itself to focus on governing territory under its control. And he told @CrisisGroup: "We are under no illusion that we can govern Idlib on our own."
3/If #Putin and #Erdogan want to preserve the Turco-Russian relationship, they will have to find an accommodation over #Idlib. In such a scenario, Ankara and Moscow would have to find a solution to the HTS question.

Things are escalating politically and militarily between Turkey, Russia, the system and internationally.
The war drums were also sounded and dances began after the Russians rejected Turkey's request to withdraw the regime from the areas it controlled.
Will the Russians insist that the regime not withdraw,
Of course, the decision is not in the hands of Bashar, but in the hands of the Russians?
At the same time ,

Will Erdogan give up his promise to the People's Assembly, his people, and his military leadership after the end of the period he gave to the regime, ??
And who is the end of February to withdraw.?

[ Thread: Internationalized #manpower in the war for #Tripoli ]
Long before #Ankara began sending #Syrian Turkmen fighters in Dec to help the #GNA, the number of gung-ho fighters willing to go risk their lives on behalf of the #LNA in W #Libya was insufficient.

That is an important reality even if pro-#LNA voices are loathe to acknowledge it
That’s why the #LNA has used #Sudanese mercs throughout 2019. On LNA side, Sudanese mercs have been basically part of the furniture, eliciting little comment.

Above issue is also the reason why the arrival of a few hundred #Russian fighters near #Tripoli in Sep had a big effect.

Thread on #Erdogan and #Syria:
From 2012 to date, Erdogan has never had clear political goal in Syria.
His policies has alwaysbeen reactionary in response to events on the ground 1/
At the initial phase of the Syrian civil war, #Erdogan has raised his rhetoric and openly asked Assad to step down. But he never followed his threats with clear measures or policies on the ground. 2/
Erdogan wrongly assumed that Assad will buckle under pressure and stepped down, and opened the gates for Syrian refugees to enter Turkey. He assumed they will stay for few months. He was wrong on both assumption: Assad stayed in power, and Turkey stuck with a refugees problem 3/

My new piece:

Three recent incidents indicate that #Erdogan has been getting ready for a significant move, probably a transformation that will change Turkey forever.

Elevated Police Intel
ISIS leader's ties to Turkey
A Pathway to Caliphate… @TIJournalism
@TIJournalism So, here are a few details:

On January 17, 2020, Erdogan issued a new presidential decree, elevating the status of the Turkish National Police TNP Intelligence Dpt. to a Directorate, essentially to a #Mukhabarat for the protection of his regime through torture, kidnappings, etc.
@TIJournalism The second, development took place during a January 2, 2020 speech:

#Erdogan said, “We have come to a point where we can longer ensure the security of our cities and maintain the order inside with police forces. In the face of this new situation, we need to develop new methods.”

It is now confirmed: Olena Malakhova, director of #SkyAviaTrans which played key role in illegal weapon smuggling from #Turkey to #Libya is among victims of Flight #PS752 shot-down! She was in #Iran to discuss about one of her businessjets in use as an Air Taxi in #Tehran.
On 6 August 2019, I revealed that her Il-76TD cargo airplane with UR-COZ civil register was bombed & destroyed by #Libya National Air Force in #Misrata air base. That night, UR-COZ had smuggled weapons from Akinci (Mürted) Air Base in #Ankara, #Turkey.
#Ukraine's state media falsely labeled me as #Russia's propagandist & claimed that I spread #FakeNews as part of an anti-Ukrainian campaign prior visit of #Zelensky & #Erdogan in #Turkey. But thanks to Satellite images, it was proved that I was right about #SkyAviaTrans Il-76TD

Another irrelevant thread coming up. As #Solemani was buried huge crowds gathered to pay their respect but what's interesting is that the #AyatollahAliKhamenei wept. This trend of powerful personalities openly shedding tears hasn't garnered enough attention.
Earlier powerful men were supposed to be stoic or atleast portray that image. From time to time we have seen powerful men cry but now even that is used as a political tool. A list of POTUS's crying. Almost all the incidents are after the 90's.…

#Erdogan A small man in Big Office
Today erdogan released a statement which just proved to me beyond the shadow of doubt that He is a small person in a big office wid even bigger Ego. Few years ago he was a hero for lot of ppl but as time has passed he even lost Istanbul election
in the Initial Run of Election it was a loss by less 0.5% bt instead of accepting it he accused opposition of rigging while he was in govt n then went 4 re-election n lost by a much bigger margin. He supported his party fully by opening Istanbul airport n other mega projects
B4 that he went into rampage against Fatahullah Gulen. Gulen is like Jamaat Islami of turkey wid lot of community services, program, schools n other institution. Historically Gulen has supported Erdogan bt somehow Erdogan thought that they want 2 over take him and he went berserk

1⃣🧵A Thread on #KLSummit2019, #Deception n #Pakistan Decision🧵
Kuala Lumpur Summit initiative started in December 2018 when Turkish President @RTErdogan visited Malaysia n met @chedetofficial
To understand why such an action was taken we need to look at the events of 2018.
2⃣At the start of 2018 the Turkish entered in Syria to dislodge Kurds 4m the area. It look like an action to protect Turkey but it served to save the Shia Assad regime and give them protection and breathing space. This was the first stab in the back of sunni muslims by Erdogan.
3⃣Turkey talks abt Syrian Children but he himself is part of killing them, He talks abt Israel atrocities but is building gas pipeline with them n fullfilling Israel energy needs. He hated Russia bt later Putin became Erdogan best friend. So what Erdogan says is not what he means

[Thread] The press conference btw @realDonaldTrump and @EmmanuelMacron today has been fascinating at many levels. The #ISIS part was in particular an excellent summary of the state of play...1/
While many commentators focused on the “#braindead” comment on #NATO in @PedderSophie ’s itw for @theeconomist, most of them missed the topic Pres. #Macron wanted to address with it...2/…
The real question was : is the spirit of the alliance respected when a member (#Turkey) acts unilaterally in Northeastern Syria, endangers the fight against #ISIS and doing so harms a key security interest of other NATO members ? 3/

Pour nos amis français qui n'ont rien compris à la crise diplomatique entre la #Turquie et la #France et qui se sentent insultés par les propos d'#Erdogan, voici un récapitulatif pour vous éclairer. C'est à vous de décider à la fin qui a raison et qui a tort.
La #Turquie souffre du terrorisme du #PKK qui a fait non 40 mais "40 mille" morts depuis 1984. Les #Kurdes eux-mêmes (20 millions en Turquie) sont les 1eres victimes de ce groupe terroriste contrairement à ce que vous racontent vos médias.
Les #YPG qu'on vous présente comme "des anges sans ailes" qui combattent Daech sont en réalité la branche syrienne du #PKK reconnu comme une organisation terroriste par la #France elle-même.

Still unclear to me the logic of using such weapon since now Russia cannot share its well-known fake news about White Helmets staging the attacks.

Turks are coming out now in the East Room. #Erdogan. Presser must be soon.
Can't get a read on them. Akar and Fidan looked concerned. FM Casivgolu looked more buoyant.
Here come the US folks. I think it's a push. Nobody won. No Americans are smiling. So I make it as lose lose.
