Is Turkey Sleeping with the Enemy? The Russia -Turkey -Iran “Triple Entente”

Donate

Written by Prof Michel Chossudovsky; Originally appeared at Global Research

Donald Trump has just sent a dirty message to the president of Turkey.

Why?

What is the objective behind Trump’s statement?

While Turkey is officially a member of NATO as well as a firm ally of the US, president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has been developing “friendly relations” with two of America’s staunchest enemies, namely Iran and Russia.

Sleeping with the enemy:  “Our relations are not good with Turkey” says Trump.

US-Turkey military cooperation (including US air force bases in Turkey) dates back to the Cold War. Today Turkey is now sleeping with both Iran and Russia. 

Trump’s response takes the form of both military threats and economic sanctions coupled with financial manipulation of foreign exchange markets directed against Turkey’s Lira.

And their  currency “slides rapidly downwards against our very strong dollar”, says Trump.

Is Turkey Sleeping with the Enemy? The Russia -Turkey -Iran “Triple Entente”

Turkey has developed an alliance of convenience with Iran. And Iran in turn is now supported by a powerful China-Russia block, which includes military cooperation, strategic pipelines as well extensive trade and investment agreements.

Is Turkey Sleeping with the Enemy? The Russia -Turkey -Iran “Triple Entente”But there is more than meets the eye.

While the US and Israel have for many years contemplated military action (including the preemptive use of nuclear weapons) against Iran, this military agenda –which relied on a longstanding military-intelligence alliance between Israel and Turkey– is currently in jeopardy. And so is Ankara’s  bilateral military alliance with Washington.

The Israel-Turkey alliance which dates back to the Security and Secrecy Agreement (SSA) signed under Turkey’s  Tansu Çiller government in 1993-94 included:

…A 1993 Memorandum of Understanding led to the creation of (Israeli-Turkish) “joint committees” to handle so-called regional threats. Under the terms of the Memorandum, Turkey and Israel agreed “to cooperate in gathering intelligence on Syria, Iran, and Iraq and to meet regularly to share assessments pertaining to terrorism and these countries’ military capabilities.”

Is Turkey Sleeping with the Enemy? The Russia -Turkey -Iran “Triple Entente”“Turkey agreed to allow IDF and Israeli security forces to gather electronic intelligence on Syria and Iran from Turkey. In exchange, Israel assisted in the equipping and training of Turkish forces in anti-terror warfare along the Syrian, Iraqi, and Iranian borders.” (see Michel Chossudovsky, 2004)

The SSA agreement was a carefully designed instrument of US foreign policy which set the stage for a firm and close Israel-Turkey relationship in military and intelligence cooperation, joint military exercises, weapons production and training.

Erdogan and Ariel Sharon (2004)

Already during the Clinton Administration, a triangular military alliance between the US, Israel and Turkey had unfolded. This “triple alliance”,  dominated by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, integrated and coordinated military command decisions between the three countries pertaining to the broader Middle East. It is based on the close military ties respectively of Israel and Turkey with the US, coupled with a strong bilateral military relationship between Tel Aviv and Ankara. ….

The triple alliance is also coupled with a 2005 NATO-Israeli military cooperation agreement which includes “many areas of common interest, such as the fight against terrorism and joint military exercises. These military cooperation ties with NATO are viewed by the Israeli military as a means to “enhance Israel’s deterrence capability regarding potential enemies threatening it, mainly Iran and Syria.” (See Michel Chossudovsky,“Triple Alliance”: The US, Turkey, Israel and the War on Lebanon, August 6, 2006)

In 2006,  shortly before Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, the US and Turkey signed a “Shared Vision” (which committed Turkey to supporting Israel). The agreement was:

“characterized by strong bonds of friendship, alliance, mutual trust and unity of vision. We share the same set of values and ideals in our regional and global objectives: the promotion of peace, democracy, freedom and prosperity.”

Is Turkey Sleeping with the Enemy? The Russia -Turkey -Iran “Triple Entente”The bilateral US-Israel and US-Turkey alliance coupled with the Israel-Turkey military and intelligence cooperation agreement as well as the Israel-NATO agreement (2003), constitute the foundations of the US-Israel-Turkey “Triple alliance” or what the Brookings Institute calls the US-Turkey- Israel Triangle.

This triangular structure of alliances is dead much to the detriment of Washington.

In turn,  Turkey wants to acquire Russia’s S-400 air defense system at a cost of 2 billion dollars. In practice, this would mean that Turkey would opt  out of the integrated US-NATO air defense system (which also includes the participation of Israel). In practice this also means that Turkey has “unofficially” chosen NATO-Exit.

What is unfolding is the building of  a new Triple Entente between Turkey, Iran and Russia. 

At this stage, this Triple Entente goes beyond an “alliance of convenience”. It constitutes a major restructuring of both military and economic alliances.

Who Benefits from Trump’s Foreign Policy Statements? Short-Selling Major Currencies. Insider Trade?

On a related matter, the Trump administration is involved in acts of manipulation on foreign exchange markets with the full support of Wall Street.

What is the consequence of Trump’s statements?

Trigger the collapse of the Turkish Lira, which constitutes a de facto act of financial warfare directed against Turkey.

Those who had advanced knowledge of  Trump’s statements (“inside information”) are making multibillion dollar profits on the foreign exchange markets. (This is an issue for further investigation)

An earlier statement by Trump regarding sanctions directed Russia was conducive to a significant decline in the Russian Ruble.

    The Russia- Turk deal is the tip of the iceberg. Russia has sold millions of dollars worth of arms all over the Middle E and N Africa in the last yr or so: http://www.newsilkstrategies.com/news–analysis/putinology-102-israel-sees-the-light
    The market for US arms is shrinking fast because of the US policy of putting defense lobbies ahead of actual defense. US arms are too expensive and less and less effective. The entire US navy could be sunk in an hour by Russian hypersonic weapons.

      If.
      existed.
      if.
      were enough.
      if.

        Well really itll be used to sink the aircraft carriers not the whole navy. But I think they might work better against anti air systems to give air superiority to russian war planes.

    Iraq befriended US and waged war on Iran. They got a big “thank you” from their “friends”. Turkey thought they were friends of US, but they are just spoils of war, like Iraq and all the other US allies.

    TRUMP LOL…. he is a 100% jewish controlled stooge….who did his daughter marry? a satanic jew of the worst kind….. from whom did trump buy the taj mahal? meyer lansky group…

    All on our planet is controlled by satanic jews….everything..period….they do the controlling through an ancient old pyramid system of power,wealth and information through the freemansons..which , I quote Albert Pike freemason 33 rd degree and grandmaster ” everything is jewish dominated, without the kabbala there would be no freemasonhood”.
    And they are all working for the satanic jewish agenda… A one world government with jerusalem as its capital under satanic jewish leadership.The day when Trump officially announced jerusalem as the capital of israel, was the countdown for the war with persia and down the road world war 3.It is not stoppable.All are into the agenda including russia,eu,china etc… the only countries not part of the agenda are those countries that do not recognize the illegal satanic state of israel, beiing Jemen,syria,iraq,iran,north korea,malaysia.
    ps. the reason why malaysia “lost” 3 airliners in a short period of time under more than strange circumstances is simple….they didnt play ball.That was a message from the jews to the malaysian government.To this day, jews are not allowed into malaysia.
    As far as north america and eu is concearned….the populations of these continents have been tottally brainwashed in all directions, and the worst brainwash is the biggest lie in human history.The holocaust.The secret to this lie is the secret of freedom for the world.thats why in most countries just talking about the holocaust is a criminal offense.Only through this lie, could and can israel exist.But like mentioned above, the populations of most countries have beeen brainwashed.They are interested who wins the premiere league, the supe bowl,whos got the biggest dick,which kadashian fucks who,has lady gaga got a cock or no,was michael jackson are homosexual, etc………. all bs….all controlled by jews to make us gojim take an anal fuck.and yeah we all do.
    Dont forget THEIR WORDS from THEIR HOLY BOOK
    The talmud ” ALL NON JEWS ARE GOJIM, ALL NON JEWISH WOMEN ARE WHORES”

    Now would be a good time for Turkey to inform the US that it will accept only gold, lira, rubles, yuan, and/or Rials for rental payments and fees for bases and the use of Turkish sea and air spaces. When the US responds with there’s already an agreement in force for those items. Turkey could respond with ‘well, we’re going to follow your example on the JCPOA and pull out of that agreement, however, we’re willing to talk about a new agreement as long as you’re willing to pay in the aforementioned methods of payment.’

    • Muriel Kuri

      Good remark – I could see Erdogan saying something like this!

    • AM Hants

      LOL (in a nice way). Would love to see that happen or be a fly on the wall, when Turkey informs Washington DC of what they will/will not accept.

  • RichardD

    Russia, Turkey and Iran all have very low national debt and are in good shape to deal with Jew financial machinations. And with the quality of Russian weapons and the Russian military can deal with NATO/Israel/GCC military threats. The US can be reformed by dejudification. Israel and Jews should be extinguished on our planet by revoking Israel’s UN membership and giving it to Palestine and outlawing Judaism and closing the synagogues and yeshivas so that there are no more Jews.

      Russia has eliminated 95% of it’s Jews from 5 million to under 200,000. The US, which has Jew infestation 20 times higher than Russia, needs to do the same thing. China has outlawed Judaism, the whole planet needs to do the same thing, Christian nations in particular.

            “Immediately following the 11 September attacks, the Zionist network was methodically maneuvering behind the scenes to quash any legitimate investigation that might reveal what really happened that day. They made it their goal to control any and all angles of so called “investigation” so that they could quickly cover up any and all evidence pointing to Zionist involvement

            All appointed chief judges were Zionist Jews:

            Alvin K. Hellerstein – a judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and has been involved in several high-profile 9/11 related cases including consolidated master case against three airlines, ICTS International NV and Pinkerton’s airport security firms, the World Trade Center owners, and Boeing Co., the aircraft manufacturer. Hellerstein is a dedicated Zionist and Israeli nationalist who has ties to the Jewish mafia dating back to 1956. Hellerstein’s wife is a former senior officer & current treasurer of AMIT. From its website it states: “Founded in 1925, AMIT is the world’s leading supporter of religious Zionist education and social services for Israel’s children and youth, nurturing and educating Israeli children to become productive, contributing members of society.”

            Michael B. Mukasey – This Orthodox Jewish judge oversaw the litigation between Larry Silverstein and insurance companies after 9/11. Silverstein was awarded billions. Mukasey prevented full inquiry into the Five Dancing Israelis incident who were arrested in connection with 9/11. He played a role in their release. He was later appointed attorney general by President Bush. He defended the patriot act, and he supports torture policies.

            Michael Chertoff – In charge of the Criminal Division in the Justice Department on 9/11. Essentially responsible for the 9/11 NON-investigation. He let hundreds of Israeli spies who were arrested prior to and on 9/11 go back home to Israel. He was also a prosecuting judge in the first terrorist attack on the WTC in 1993. Chertoff purportedly holds dual citizenship with the US and Israel. His family is one of the founding families of the state of Israel and his mother was one of the first ever agents of the Mossad, Israel’s spy agency. His father and uncle are ordained rabbis and teachers of the Talmud.

            Kenneth Feinberg – set up the victim’s compensation fund ($7 billion); controlled by a Zionist cabal, it managed to get 97% of the victims’ families to take money in exchange for dropping demands a legal investigation of 9/11.

            Sheila Birnbaum – Another key Zionist involved in the cover-up of 9/11 is Sheila Birnbaum of Skaddan, Arps law firm. Birnbaum was appointed ‘special mediator’ of the legal suits filed by the 3% of families who decided not to be bought off. Nothing of significance has happened with these claims since.

            Benjamin Chertoff – (cousin of Michael Chertoff) – Ben wrote the 9/11 hit piece in Popular Mechanics claiming to “debunk 9/11 conspiracy theories”. His use of ridiculous straw-man arguments largely discredits the piece though it is still widely quoted by defenders of ‘the official narrative’. He claims his relation to Michael Chertoff is “distant” but Chris Bollyn proves otherwise.

            Stephen Cauffman – Leader of NIST investigations which in total amount to a systematic coverup of the WTC 7 collapse. The NIST position remains that fire, together with minor damage caused by ‘ejected debris’ from the collapse of the North Tower situated a block away with WTC building 8 in between, brought down WTC building 7.

            9/11 Commission: Zionist controlled

            Philip Zelikow (Dual Citizen US / Israel) – 9/11 Commission Gatekeeper
            Zelikow was appointed the executive director of the 9/11 commission – the most powerful position of the committee. This Zionist Jew is responsible for concocting the contrived fiction that was presented as the 9/11 Commission Report – official narrative. The report contains hundreds of glaring anomalies, contradictions, omissions and downright falsehoods. It even manages to omit any reference at all to the collapse of Building 7 at 5:20 pm.”

    The UNGS report on a Palestinian protection force is due out tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if it supports clearing the IDF, Mossad, Shin Bet and the Israeli government out of Shebaa Farms, the Golan and Palestinian territories. In support of the 40 UN resolutions that the evil Jews are in chronic willful scofflaw violation of, as part of dejudifying and unifying Palestine:

    “A United Nations human rights expert is under fire after suggesting Israel could have its member status at the world body suspended over alleged violations of international law. …

    He said that Israel is in “direct contravention” of more than 40 U.N. Security Council resolutions, including resolutions condemning the building of settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

    “What should be done with respect to a member state who clearly defies a body of UNSC resolutions, contrary to their responsibilities under the Charter and as an occupying power?” he said. “If this behaviour is ignored, then the offending member-state will surely take that as a license to continue the prohibited act, and the status of international law will be degraded.”

    “If it is clear that Israel has no intent to comply with the repeated direction of the international community, then other measures within the remedial menu should be considered and applied,” he said, adding that similar measures had successfully been used against other countries before.”

    Turkey must inform the US that the rents to lease military bases in Turkey will go up due to economic losses caused by the tenant and that the leases will not be extended. Rents must be paid in gold-backed yuan.

    It is important to always taje into account that Turkey is a NATO member and selected friend of USA, despite the theater made by both of them (Turkey and USA). I consider that Russia is doing a very very danger play with Turkey since it is impossible to trust Turkey.

    The sickening phrase commonly used “fight against terrorism” needs to be replaced by “promoting terrorism” which has a ring of truth about it, supported by evidence also. Maybe SF can replace it and hence show some form of credibility.
