Expansionist Neo-Ottoman Turkey

Postby Tim Drayton » Mon Oct 03, 2016 12:53 pm

For some reason that mystifies me, quite a few Greek speakers on this forum seem to think that having an Islamist regime with Neo-Ottoman leanings in Turkey is a good thing. I would advise them to rethink that position. Following the dispatch of Turkish troops to Syria within the 'Euphrates Shield' operation, a couple of days ago Turkey's president Erdoğan publicly criticised the treaty of Lausanne, in particular referring to what he described as the loss of islands so close to Turkey's coast that 'if we shout loud enough, people there can hear us.' Now the mayor of Ankara, Melih Gökçek, a close ally of Erdoğan, has posted the following tweet, whose message translates as 'Brainbox Lausanne supporters. Look, we gave these dark blue islands right beneath our nose to Greece under Lausanne. You unashamedly call Lausanne a victory.' One of the key doctrines of Kemalism which has guided the foreign policy of the Republic of Turkey since its inception has been the unquestioning acceptance of the country's borders as negotiated under the Treaty of Lausanne. In my view, the true goal of the Islamist AKP has always been to reverse the achievements attained by the secular Republic of Turkey under the aegis of Kemalism and to revert to an Islamist state with Neo-Ottomanist leanings. These latest attacks on a further key tenet of Kemalism do not in my view bode well for Turkey's neighbours or for peace and stability in the region. It is not only Putin who is salivating at the prospect of the EU weakening thus giving rise to the prospect of recapturing once subordinated territory.

These are the people that insist on Troops remaining in Cyprus and Turkish guarantees. F me we must be off our heads to even be speaking to them.

Once a barbarian, a;ways a barbarian. Whether Turkey is on our shores or 40 miles away, these MFs will do the same if they wanted to.

Do my GC compatriots who support the TCs now understand the animal we are dealing with??? God help us all.

Its a terrible thing Tim. There is no comparison between Ottomania and a civilized nation as your neighbour. I dont think any reasonable person thinks the way Turkey is going is good.


If you ask me, Turkey is hurtling towards her own undoing and dissintegration. Its sh!t like THIS that has the potential to end Turkey as we know it today.
