Duff: Troublemakers: Ankara, Riyadh Envision the Creation of New ‘Wahhabi Empire’

800 ISIS fighters cut off in Aleppo pocket

Turkey has already unleashed a war in the MiddleEast, Marine combat veteran Gordon Duff, referring to the country’s de facto invasion of Iraq and shelling of Syria.


In the past few years Turkey and Saudi Arabia have been creating a “new Wahhabi empire” in the Middle East and beyond by fuelling Islamic extremists, Muslim Brotherhood recruits and al-Qaeda affiliates.

“Turkey and Saudi Arabia have made their plans clear to an amazed world, a new Wahhabist empire, an ‘Islamic State,’ not the one the puppet front organization ISIS [Daesh] is running, but a real one with up to a million men in uniform, over three thousand modern combat aircraft and nuclear weapons,” Veterans Today editor and Marine combat veteran Gordon Duff writes for New Eastern Outlook.

The Marine combat veteran envisions that if Ankara and Riyadh prevail, the region would be turned into a caliphate while the fate of the Mideast nation-states and the Kurdish minority is likely to be deplorable. While Western policymakers are weighing the pros and cons of a ground military operation in the region, Turkey has already unleashed the war, Duff stresses.

“A war is already going on. Turkey has invaded Syria… Turkey has bombed Kurds inside Syria, not the claimed ‘rebel’ PKK, but the US allies of the YPG [Kurdish People’s Protection Units]… Turkey has invaded Iraq, sending in 1,500 troops who now protect Mosul, the ISIS [Daesh] capitol…

Turkey is actively threatening Greece with continual air space violations and aggressive claims made against Greek islands in the Aegean. Turkey is preparing for war with Iran, ethnically cleansing their common border of Kurds and through building a military base in Qatar to launch operations from,” the combat veteran emphasizes.

Furthermore, Turkey has committed an act of aggression against Russia by shooting down the Su-24 in the Syrian airspace on November 24, 2015.In short, the erratic Turkish leader is fanning the flames in the already war-torn region. In addition, Ankara’s tentacles have been spread to Europe: the Erdogan government has no scruples about blackmailing Brussels amid the ongoing refugee crisis.

Erdogan has destroyed Germany’s Merkel, whose popularity is at an all-time low,” Duff notes.

However, what is more important, the Turkish Armed Forces have amassed over 18,000 troops on the Syrian border, while a 250,000-strong military contingent is ready to move into both Syria and Iraq within 30 days, he underscores.

While Turkey can potentially invade Syria and Iraq from the north, Saudi Arabia is ready to move its armored forces into the region from the south.Does it mean Syria and Iraq will fall victims to Ankara and Riyadh? No, it is highly unlikely amid the Russo-Syrian advance.

Although the Turkish artillery has been shelling Azaz, Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have continued to advance towards the Syrian city.

“Turkey continues to cause massive artillery strikes on the positions of the YPG and Syrian Democratic Forces. The villages of Meryemin, Minnigh near Azaz and Afrin have been subjected to shelling. Civilians have suffered as a result of the bombing,” YPG commander Firat Xelil told Sputnik Turkiye Saturday.

​The SDF and the YPG are fighting against Ankara-backed rebels, from al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Arab Army‘s ‘Tiger Forces’ — backed by Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) and the Cheetah Forces ‘Team 3’ — have retaken the Aleppo Thermal Power Plant from Daesh, according to Al-Masdar News. In addition, the Syrian forces have imposed full control over Umm Turaykiyah in the Al-Safira Plains, the media outlet reported Saturday.

​In its turn, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division is moving through the Hama-Raqqa countryside expelling Daesh forces from the area and heading towards the Tabaqa Military Airport.

    It’s laughable that the Saudi apes think they can invade from the South while Iran is waiting for that very move. And as for the Turkeys, they’re just doing what the are told, sure wannabe sultan Erdog is mad, but he’s no stupid to invade, just to start a war with Russia, with or without Western backing.

      How long would Saudi and the GCC stand up under a full-scale Iranian missile attack? No where for their planes to land and be refueled, and no re-supply of fuel and ammunition for their ground forces after the first couple of hours of the war. Iranian ground forces could pass through Iraq with permission or be ferried across the Persian Gulf and take every major city within a couple of weeks.

      And the Iranians would still have enough forces to open a second front in western Turkey, with the promise to the Kurds that the area would become part of Kurdistan if they join the fight (and using Erdoğan’s own tactic of supplying arms to indigenous anti-government forces against him).

    Turkish artillery MUST be taken out. When their aircraft attack, blow them out of the sky w/the S-400 system and/or Russian needs to build-up it’s air presence much more..And that damn hippie is right: Turkey and the Saudis are junior partners to Talmudia and it’s golem-the US. Qatar is a glorified American military base ( which is why Al-Jazeera doesn’t report who really did 9-11 ) so they can’t spend $ on anything without the approval of America and the cabal that owns America..

    Should these wakoziods gather their courage and go forward with those ideo-illogical plans and suffer defeat the ksa and turkey will be in need of a permanent reset. Iraq and Syria can be be recovered as part of the new silk road. The issue with nuclear Israel in the hands of Bibi and co. and Palestine “Gaza” and neighbors Lebanon, seems not to go quietly into that good night.
