Never has the self-suicide of #Syria's mainstream opposition been more clear than in recent days.

#Afrin was really bad, but this NE incursion (its manner; its consequences etc.) is truly beyond the pale -- in truth, what we've witnessed is a #Turkish campaign through-&-through.
It's clear now that the Dec 2016 loss of #Aleppo - in large part due to #Turkey selling it out to #Russia - was *the* turning point.

Opposition factions lost any sense of autonomy of action & over the years that followed, everyone but #JFS-#HTS & #AlQaeda existed *for* #Ankara.
An #American presence in NE #Syria kept at least some of this #Turkish ambition under wraps (just ), but #Trump's naive (or malicious?) "green light" decision after speaking with #Erdogan let everything loose.

Only now are we seeing the consequences -- and they're not yet clear.

Since 2012, the Turkish intelligence service, MIT, under Erdogan’s direction, has provided resources and material assistance to ISIS. ISIS fighters captured by pro-U.S. Kurds showed Turkish passport stamps, boasting of direct assistance from 🇹🇷authorities. nypost.com/2019/09/21/why…
In 2016, Wikileaks published an archive of 58,000 emails documenting the involvement of Erdogan’s son-in-law, Berat Albayrak, in helping ISIS market #oil stolen from Syria and Iraq. Until the publication of the emails, Albayrak had denied any involvement in the illicit oil trade.
Sümeyye #Erdogan, daughter of the Turkish president, reportedly set up an entire medical corps, including a hospital to treat wounded #ISIS fighters in Sanlurfa, a city in Southeastern Turkey close to the Syrian border. #TrumpBetrayedOurAllies #TrumpBetrayedAmerica

I've made my thoughts clear on how *bad* #Trump's decisions have been for #Syria policy (& the #SDF).

But let's just get something straight:

- The U.S. knowingly decided to ally with a designated terrorist organization (the #PYD/#YPG) in 2014 to fight #ISIS in #Kobani & beyond.
#pt: The State Dept, NCTC & CIA all viewed the #PYD as the #PKK's #Syria affiliate in 2013 -- that's in public documents.

That label was [quietly] removed in 2014.

In #Turkey - a #NATO state, whether we like it or not - the #PKK is viewed as *the* existential security threat.
#pt: #Turkey was complicit in terrible #Syria border control & ties to #Nusra. No doubt.

But put that aside for minute:

Imagine if a foreign state brought #ISIS to #Mexico & armed it to fight cartels, while assuring #Washington: "don't worry, they're only interested in Mexico."

Tomorrow Sept.16 Ankara to host trilateral #Russia-#Iran-#Turkey summit on #Syria. It is expected to announce quite important decisions on, e.g. finalization of the Constitutional Committee & political process in general, #Idlib, return of #refugees, humanitarian aid. Stay tuned.
#Putin just landed in #Ankara for trilateral #Syria summit. Apart of #Syria related issues #Russia, #Iran & #Turkey will likely to discuss the recent attack on #SaudiArabia oil facilities which led to 19% increase of Brent price & will likely increase regional tensions.
#Putin & #Erdogan just finished bilateral talks. Instead of planned hour-long meeting they spent 2 hrs.
Topics discussed are quite evident judging by #Russia's lineup:
- #Lavrov
- FP aide Ushakov
- energy minister Novak
- defense minister #Shoigu
- #Syria special envoy Lavrentiev

#BREAKING: #Turkish media (#Erdogan's Anadolu Agency) released video of the first S-400 SAM battery of #Turkey which were delivered by two #Russia Air Force's An-124-100 transport airplanes, RA-82038 and RA-82013 from 224th Flight Unit at #Akinci AB, #Ankara few hours ago.
Based on these videos, the #Russia Air Force's An-124-100s transported the first #Turkey's S-400 SAM battery to #Akinci AB, #Ankara without its missiles. The missiles will be probably delivered by sea.
What we can see in these videos are the 5P85TE3 launcher carries and their BAZ-6909 artillery tractors but without any missile. Due to safety reasons & also inability of #Turkey to operate its first S-400 SAM battery, the missiles will be delivered by means of ship in two months.

#Istanbul #Reelection Today- ~6 hrs left to polls closing. High stakes. Hoping for a smooth, Democratic & peaceful process. It will be an intense evening count. I’ll report updates periodically. Reporting on the ground from #Turkey @sibeledmonds
#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

Seçim sonucu Analizi:

Erdoğan 25 yıldır hizmet verdiği #İstanbul'u kaybetti.

Melih Gökçek'in 25 yıldır hizmet verdiği #Ankara Kaybedildi.

Çeyrek asırdır aralıksız seçilen ve binlerce büyük projelere imza atan bir parti neden kaybetti?

Bazı Nedenleri sıralayalım...
* Ak Partinin Kadın politikalarındaki rezaleti.

Kadın için çıkarılan yasalar Batı yaşam tarzı baz alınarak yapıldı. "Kadının beyanı esastır" diyen aile bakanı zina edenlerin yanında yer aldı.

Ak Partinin kadın politikası aileyi dağıttı, Ak parti ise aile üzerine kurulmuştu.
*Damadın Hazineye atanması

Başkanlık seçimlerinden sonraki en büyük hayal kırıklığı Damadın hazinenin başına atanmasıydı.Bu atama ne etik nede ahlakiydi

Bırakın karşı mahalleyi Erdoğanı yıllarca iktidara taşıyan kendi kesimi bile bu atamayı hazmedemedi. Alınmalıydı ama alınmadı

Preliminary observations on #TurkeyElections:
1) The opposition (#Nation bloc) making major gains, including the capital Ankara & Antalya.
2) HDP proved to be kingmakers - swayed votes to the #Nation bloc.
3) AKP losing significant votes & mayors to its #Peoples bloc partner MHP.
Preliminary prediction on #TurkeyElections: AKP cadres have seen that #Erdoğan's strategy of framing the elections around the theme "existential threat" has backfired, and will start complaining of losing votes, municipalities, & spoils to their ultranationalist partner #MHP.
Of #Turkey's 12 largest cities, the opposition is winning at least 7: #Ankara, #İzmir, #Adana, #Antalya, #Mersin, #Eskişehir, & #Diyarbakır. The largest city #Istanbul is a toss-up! #Bursa, too, is too close to call. AKP is losing Turkey's economic power houses. #TurkeyElections

🇹🇷 Elections locales en #Turquie dans un climat économique très dégradé par rapport aux présidentielles et aux législatives de juin 2018. economist.com/europe/2019/01…
🇹🇷 Dans ce contexte, l'opposition espère faire basculer plusieurs villes majeures :

➡️#Ankara, où @mansuryavas06 du #CHP (centre-gauche laïque) semble bien placé pour l'emporter
➡️#Istanbul, où @ekrem_imamoglu (CHP) est au coude-à-coude dans les sondages avec @BA_Yildirim (AKP)
🇹🇷 La troisième ville du pays, #Izmir, est un bastion du CHP et devrait le rester, mais l'opposition CHP+İYİ (nationaliste laïque) espère aussi gagner les grandes métropoles d'#Adana, #Bursa ou #Antalya et de nombreuses villes moyennes.

Living through first local elections in #Turkey After 32 years!!! The dynamics & methods are so different than US- In some ways cute & funny. Every 15 min Painted vans blasting music for each different party passing by my house!!! My dog’s been going nuts for the past 14 days!!!
The District Head showed up at my door this morning (at 8!)- gave me all the documentations and location for info for the voting boots. I am so Not used to this. Very interesting. Very different!!!
When compared with USA the cost of running for office is sooooo much lower. TV spots not in the equation. Volunteers, a few painted-postered vans making rounds, and yes: music, music, music.
