One thing you can say about the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is he certainly has a theatrical streak a mile wide. He has now taken things to an entirely new level of lunacy. Erdogan has just stated that he doesn’t feel the need to comply with any court decision related to the release of the 300 jailed people. He doesn’t respect the court decision. He doesn’t feel the need to follow it, or even accept that is binding. The stunning arrogance of his comments is beyond the pale. We have the Prime Minister of Turkey stating openly he is now beyond the law. He feels no restrictions at all in his behavior, much less his policies. He has, to use the term the opposition is now using, staged a coup. Erdogan is now a dictator in Turkey. He feels no restraint from the rule of law, doesn’t accept judicial rulings, and shows open contempt for court decisions he doesn’t agree with. The only US comparison I can come up with is if Obama stated openly he refused to accept a Supreme Court decision.
The upshot of all this is simple. Erdogan is now beyond the rule of law in Turkey. He feels he can do anything he wants to. He clearly is ignoring the elected legislative branch. He is clearly ignoring the judicial branch. He is now placed himself as not only a tyrant, but as a tyrant seeking to restore the historical Ottoman Empire. The only other world leader who comes near his level of rank craziness is North Korea’s leader.
We have this link from TASS about Turkey’s ongoing support for ISIS.
The link below states Russian opinion about Turkey’s real intentions.
This link from the Kurdish website claims Turkey bombed ISIS around Aleppo.
The new tyrant Erdogan didn’t waste any time in cracking down on the Kurds inside of Turkey.
1. RUSSIA SAYS ONLY NINE CEASE FIRE VIOLATIONS
https://www.rt.com/news/333874-nine-…lations-syria/ 9 violations of Syrian ceasefire in 24 hours – Russian monitors Published time: 28 Feb, 2016 12:28 Edited time: 28 Feb, 2016 14:31 In the Raqqa province, a group of some 100 fighters crossed into Syria from Turkey. The group later joined forces with other militants and attacked the Kurdish town of Tell Abyad. The 250-strong group was supported by artillery fire from the Turkish territory, a fact that Russia said the US should explain. The Kurdish YPG militia fended off the attack, the report said. In Latakia province, fighters of the Al Nusra Front terrorist group, which is not included into the ceasefire deal, fired mortar shells at a local militia force, which returned fire.
Erdogan is setting up a situation which is lurching totally out of control. He is not holding back at all. Where all this will end up I honestly don’t know. I will say given Erdogan’s behavior up to this point, and his open declaration of dictatorship, things are not looking good.
