King Abdullah: Erdogan’s Agenda is European Terrorism

"[Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan] believes in a radical Islamic solution to the problems in the region," it reads, adding that the "fact that terrorists are going to Europe is part of Turkish policy, and Turkey keeps getting a slap on the hand, but they get off the hook."


Leaked Memo Reveals UK Special Air Service Deployed in Libya Since January

… from Sputnik News,  Moscow


– First published  …  March 25, 2016

According to a leaked memo written by King Abdullah II, Jordanian troops have operated alongside UK Special Air Service troops in Libya since January.

The memo was sent to US lawmakers by King Abdullah to brief them of Jordan’s plans to embed special forces “with British SAS” in Libya. The document also reveals that the monarch met with Arizona Senator John McCain and Tennessee Senator Bob Corker in the presence of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

“On Libya His Majesty said he expects a spike in a couple of weeks and Jordanians will be embedded [sic] with British SAS,” reads the document, obtained by the Guardian.

The memo explains that Jordan’s role in Britain’s operation was crucial, since “Jordanian slang is similar to Libyan slang.”

Libya is of particular concern to Jordan because it serves as a hotbed for both Daesh, also known as the Islamic State, and al-Shabaab, following the NATO overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi. King Abdullah indicates that special forces operations could be carried in other African nations, as well.

“Jordan is looking at al-Shabaab because no one was really looking at the issue, and we cannot separate this issue, and the need to look at all the hotspots in the map. We have a rapid deployment force that will stand with the British and Kenya and is ready to over the border into Somalia.”

Britain’s operations are not limited to Africa. The memo states that UK special forces were critical in forming a battalion of tribal fighters to combat the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The document also expresses Jordan’s frustrations with other allies in the region.

“[Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan] believes in a radical Islamic solution to the problems in the region,” it reads, adding that the “fact that terrorists are going to Europe is part of Turkish policy, and Turkey keeps getting a slap on the hand, but they get off the hook.”

The king complained that Israel “looks the other way” in regards to the Nusra Front, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, because “they regard them as an opposition to Hezbollah.”

 The memo also offers Jordan’s view on the controversial issue of whether or not to shut down known terrorist websites. Intelligence agencies should keep such websites “open so they can use them to track extremists,” the memo reads, adding that tech giant Google confirmed to King Abdullah that “they have 500 people working on this.”

The leak comes at a particularly trying time for the British government. Prime Minister David Cameron is facing increased pressure by parliament to improve transparency over special forces operations. News that Britain has been secretly operating in Libya for three months will only increase Cameron’s troubles.

    Yes,mfor sure the end of the EU is a must and each European country can stand on it’s own two feet.


    It is a War CRIME to have anything to do with them.

    Yes, you need good Intel, that is a given, but I wish to live under a Meritocracy my proposal would be along the lines of the Centre path, no need to change parties, but every need to hold the main components of a Meritocarcy responsible if the individuals involved fail.

    So, for example Bush, Blair and the foreign secretary’s defence security’s would be the starting point for expulsion from politics and if necessary and warranted via evidence held to account.

    Decentralisation to phase out Centralisation and also indigenous populations to be at least 80% of the population.

    This can all be done and works best for all.

    Peace !

    umm no, erDOGan is getting PAID to send terrorists to Europe while selling real refugees life preservers that SINK when their boat is sunk. “you can’t make this stuff up”.
    so called “leaders” of the “EU” are paying erDOGan what he wants-demands, but oh-no they aren’t in on it at all nooo… they’ll send the more harmless refugees back to turkey to be abused but not be able to find the military-mercenary terrorists for some reason…
    the pattern is pretty predictable, controlled chaos, order out of chaos hegelian.

     “It’s a Small World After All”, it’s Even SMALLER in the 21st Century.
     As you saw, in the 21st Century MILITARY MIGHT WON’T CUT IT
     The Warmonger Leaders will CONTINUE ROAM the World & BOMB

    1. CITIZENS, tell POLICE If You See Something Strange
    2. WEED-OUT The Warmonger WESTERN LEADERS:
    (USA, UK, FRANCE / Russia & China, DON’T like WARS)
    4. Re-place LEADERS with “SMART & PEACE LOVING” Don’t RECYCLE
