U.S. Ally? Turkey’s Goals: Not Peace or NATO, Helps ISIS Win

isis-winning    The difficulty of establishing firm diplomatic or military foundations in the Middle East comes when leaders of nations cling to conflicting goals. Like a tail trying to wag the dog, Turkey insists: 1) Syria must be defeated; 2) Kurdish rebellion groups must also fall, even if it means 3) ISIS wins.

What Turkey’s president wants is absolutely antithetical to goals of NATO and the United States. In fact, some now wonder if Turkey wants ISIS to defeat U.S. Allied forces.  Such suspicion borders on discoveries of truth.

For months Kurdish leaders inside Turkey insist the country’s leader, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, secretly supports ISIS.  As Constanze Letsch and Ian Traynor in ‘Kobani: Anger Grows as Turkey Stops Kurds from Aiding Militias in Syria’ write:

“Turkey’s perceived inaction vis-à-vis the situation in Kobani and the conviction of many Kurds that Ankara directly supports Islamic State militants against Kurdish fighters seems to be the final straw.” Thus Kurds riot in the streets.

Erdogan knows that Kurds fighting against ISIS represent ground fighters for U.S. Thus, it would seem Erdogan wants U.S. ground forces to loose the battle against ISIS. And that’s a member of NATO and ally of the United States?

Catherine James, et al, write in ‘Battle for Kobani: New Air Strikes Target Isis Forces Amid New Appeals for Help’: “The Turkish parliament last week authorized the government to take military action against Isis.

“But Turkey has not announced plans for any operations, with Ankara apparently seeking a commitment from the west to move decisively against the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, as well as the jihadis. Erdoğan said he wanted to Map-of-Turkey-Syria-Iraq-Iran-jpgfight both Isis and the Kurdistan Workers’ party (PKK).”

Conflicting goals lead to conflicting results.  Demir Çelik, spokesman for the Kurdish People’s Democracy says: “The pictures of the Turkish army as . . . doing nothing while Kurds are being killed in front of their eyes, has created a worldwide perception of Turkey as a cynical and calculating player.”

In ‘Turkish Inaction on ISIS Advance Dismays the U.S.,’ Mark Landler, et al, quote an anonymous diplomat:  “This isn’t how a NATO ally acts while hell is unfolding a stone’s throw from their border.”  These analysts point out that Turkey’s resistance as one Muslim nation in a loose coalition could negatively influence other Muslim nations to weaken their resolve against ISIS.

Is that another one of Erdogan’s goals: To make it impossible for any Muslim nation to resist the ISIS advance? Such subversive underhandedness means the U.S. and Western allies walk in quick-sand in the Middle East.

Erdogan’s schizophrenic plans will backfire, because Satan, the heart of all evil, provides ISIS’ spiritual force. Remember Turkey is a vital fourth in revival of Alexander’s kingdom, the other three being Syria, Egypt and Greece.  Thus, ISIS will eventually swallow Turkey whole, and then go after the other two.

And, unless American Christians and others around the world apply spiritual forces of prayer and repentance to old back this tide of evil, that end will be sooner rather than later.  As Christian non-fiction prophecy books foretell: “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time (1 John 2: 18).”
