Destabilizing Turkey: Gladio-styled Attack in Ankara Kills 28 and Wounds 61

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Oh look. A Kurdish regional PKK commander has “proof” the AKP government and Erdogan support “ISIS” in order to keep the Kurds from creating Greater Kurdistan. (I’m not kidding. That’s what he said. See update at end of article… and yes, I was right all along about Greater Kurdistan… so there.)


“There is another type of warfare—new in its intensity, ancient in its origin—war by guerrillas, subversives, insurgents, assassins; war by ambush instead of by combat, by infiltration instead of aggression, seeking victory by eroding and exhausting the enemy instead of engaging him. It preys on unrest” JFK

The following is my attempt to make sense of the senseless bombing that just took place in Ankara, Turkey. The way I see it, there are 4 possible explanations to all of this but ultimately I think the timing tells us what we need to know.  The last part of the article will give you a little background on the situation in Turkey, Iraq and Syria and what I think is the ultimate goal here, the creation of Greater Kurdistan.

Today’s Bombing in Ankara

It’s being reported that 28 people were killed today in Ankara, Turkey when a car bomb went off next to buses carrying Turkish military members on a busy street at rush hour. Sixty-one others were wounded and these numbers are surely going to grow by the end of the day.

The Turkish military condemned what it described as a terrorist attack on the buses as they waited at traffic lights in the administrative heart of the city.

A government spokesman said 28 people had been killed and 61 wounded in the blast, which took place near a busy intersection less than 500 meters from parliament during the evening rush hour.

Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag described the attack as an act of terrorism and told parliament, which was in session when the blast occurred, that the car had exploded on a part of the street lined on both sides by military vehicles. Reuters


According to the official story, the buses were stopped at a traffic light when the car bomb went off.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has released a statement saying she “shares the pain” of the Turkish people in this desperate hour. She says they are on the side of Turkey against “whoever” did this. I wonder what that could mean as far as who ends up getting the blame.

It’s also being reported that the Turkish military is likely to strike back hard against “whoever” did it. Interesting timing if it turns out our “ISIS” puppets accept responsibility on their slick media magazine site. Especially considering there is supposed to be a ceasefire in place tomorrow in Syria. I guess if this is “ISIS”, Turkey will bomb anything that moves… and who could blame them… right?

The fact that no one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack hasn’t stopped the usual suspects from naming the usual suspects in this:

A senior Turkish security source said initial signs indicated that Kurdish militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) were responsible. Separate security sources in the mainly Kurdish southeast, however, said they believed Islamic State militants may have been behind the bombing.Reuters

At this point, they don’t even know for sure it was a car bomb and not a Hell-fire missile from a drone so speculation as to responsibility is based solely on the circumstances in Turkey and Syria right now.

I’ve even seen some irresponsible ‘journalists’ trying to imply it might have been a proxy group hired by Russia as pay-back for the downing of their fighter jet.

Of course people like that get paid to come up with whatever anti-Russian BS they can think of at the moment and they almost certainly subscribe to the “never let a good bombing go to waste” ideology.

At the risk of delving into this without enough factual evidence at this point, I will say, the Russian boogieman theory aside, it appears we have several possibilities regarding this cowardly attack:

  1. The Kurds
  2. “ISIS” (same thing as the Kurds?)
  3. Turkish Military False Flag Event
  4. staged

Chances are it wont be blamed on the Kurds. After all, they are the darling new Freedom Fighters, right? Of course, it does sound like it was a military convoy and where would they be headed right about now? Yeah, they would be headed to the conflict with the Kurds in Turkey. But my guess is, it won’t be laid at the feet of the followers of the new Barzani Kurdistan (think Saudi Arabia and you get the picture)

“ISIS” is always a great scape-goat where ever and when ever Obama needs to justify military action someplace. In Iraq the General Military Council for Iraqi Revolutionaries  decided to retake their country from our puppet dictator after Obama pulled out the majority of US troops in the country. Well, the “liberal” president couldn’t be seen as interfering with the course of another country, so “ISIS” was born and we started seeing a number of fake beheading videos designed to make Obamaites support continued military action in Iraq.

In Syria, Obama had to justify sending our military into there as well seeing as how no one was going to get behind the idea that we had to go in to protect the CIA’s and John McCain’s destabilization terrorists, so, “ISIS” was there as well.

In Libya, they elected a legitimate government that wanted no part of US “national interests” and we were about to lose all that access to all that oil, so Obama declared there was no government in Libya and suddenly… “ISIS”

And now… “ISIS” in Turkey.

Which leads right into the false flag hypothesis.

The general objective of unconventional warfare is to instill a belief that peace and security are not possible without compromise or concession. Specific objectives include inducement of war-weariness, curtailment of civilian standards of living and civil liberties associated with greater security demands, economic hardship linked to the costs of war; hopelessness to defend against assaults, terror, depression, and disintegration of morale. Wiki

Almost all terrorism is state sponsored terrorism. It’s been that way since the old Gladio days where we hired a bunch of far right-wing thugs to “stay behind” in various European nations after WWII in order to ensure they wouldn’t trend too far to the left after the Soviet Union defeated the fascists from Germany.

They would use bombings and sabotage and kidnappings and random murder sprees in order to terrorize populations and destabilize governments. If you care too, look up “irregular warfare” and Unconventional warfare (UW) if you like. Or remain willfully ignorant. it’s your choice. But the evidence of such behavior, such warfare, is plentiful.

“There is another type of warfare—new in its intensity, ancient in its origin—war by guerrillas, subversives, insurgents, assassins; war by ambush instead of by combat, by infiltration instead of aggression, seeking victory by eroding and exhausting the enemy instead of engaging him. It preys on unrest” JFK

It is altogether possible that what happened today was a Gladio-styled attack targeting the people of Turkey carried out by a few highly positioned people within the military of Turkey. It serves a number of interests whether or not it’s blamed on the PKK, “ISIS” or even Russia for that matter.

The Turkish military have made it clear they intend to intervene in the governance of the country if things deteriorate and there is an open threat to national security. This would mean rule by a military junta until, perhaps, a former leader could be brought in, someone close to US and NATO interests, who wouldn’t mind allowing the Kurds to take a little of the nation just so long as his personal wealth benefited from such a deal. Part of Unconventional Warfare is finding a deposed ruling class that will be friendlier to our “national interests” and putting them in power once the regime change op takes place. In this case, that would almost certainly be Fethullah Gülen.

CIAnnonymous is reporting that there is a media blackout concerning this attack. You could expect that in the case of a false flag. The last thing they want is to have people sharing information with each other in an unregulated manner while the “official story” takes shape. It’s par for the course these days.

But that could also be the AKP government trying to keep the neoliberal press in Turkey from using this event to further terrorize the Turkish people and thus further the regime change agenda.

Then again, looking at Twitter, there seem to be an awful lot of users writing Tweets in the language of Turkey who’s profiles say they are in Turkey… so maybe CIAnnonymous is just full of shit again, like they usually are.

So at this point, along with pretty much every other conclusion, it’s hard to determine exactly what is at play here.

But the timing of the attack is impossible to ignore. It serves the regime change agenda in two nations and further perpetuates the mythology of “ISIS” as the ever present bad guy where ever and when ever we want to engage in nation building (or stripping)

So far, that’s what I know. Please add links and comments as you hear more. My heart goes out to the people of Turkey at this time. Not just for this but for what’s been happening to them since July of last year when the Kurds decided to end the peace deal by killing a couple Turkish cops.

These kinds of unconventional wars they wage are cruel things with the focus being to cause as much harm and suffering on the soft targets of the population that they can and it’s cowardly and evil as far as I am concerned.

Whatever way this turns out, it doesn’t bode well for Turkey or Syria. I guess we should have known the CIA and their terrorist mercs wouldn’t give up so easily on their “7 Nations in 5 Years” plan.

Why is it so much blood is always spilled the day before a cease-fire or a peace plan goes into effect?

My condolences to the people of Turkey.

Now, a Little Background

Ever since the political party of Recep Erdogan (the Justice and Development Party (AKP) ) won the snap elections in Nov. of 2015 with 49% of the vote, the regime change operation in the country has been running on all cylinders. They have blamed Erdogan for everything from “ISIS” to Israel’s buying of stolen Syrian oil from our favorite new dictators, the Barzani clan of Iraqi Kurdistan.

The Turkish military were deprived of power in Turkey not that long ago by Erdogan and the AKP. Failed military coups have consequences.

Shortly after, an alleged coup plot code-named Sledgehammer became public and resulted in the imprisonment of 300 military officers including İbrahim Fırtına, Çetin Doğan and Engin Alan. Several opposition politicians, journalists and military officers also went on trial for allegedly being part of an ultra-nationalist organization called Ergenekon. Wiki

Of course, when such stories are told here in the states, failed military coups are magically transformed into governmental overreach by an out of control dictator, in this case, Erdogan.

It’s know that the Turkish military and intelligence agencies are in bed with the US State Department, the CIA and NATO. The fact that supplies and support for the various terrorist mercenary groups (hired by the CIA) have been making their way into the Syrian “civil war” through Turkey is not surprising in that light. After all, who controls the borders of a country? The president or the military? Obviously it’s the military. And in this case it’s a military that isn’t too happy with the current leadership of the country.

Same holds true for the shoot-down of the Russian plane. Did Erdogan give the order? We know the intel for the attack, which was premeditated by the way, came from US military sources. Once again, who conducts such things? The office of the president or the military?

It seems to me that Recep Erdogan is pretty singular in his purpose when it comes to Syria: he wants to keep the Kurds in Syria from capturing land in that country and taking it for themselves as well as preventing the Kurdish guerrilla movement PKK from doing the same thing in his country. That’s what I call the Greater Kurdistan movement that we see underway in Iraq, Syria and Turkey right now. It’s well known that they are targeting the Kurds in Syria and as we all know, there is a great deal of turmoil in Turkey right now between the official government and the Kurdish separatists. The sad thing is, it was pretty much over between these two groups back in 2011 when Erdogan reached a deal with Kurdistan Worker’s party and he even granted amnesty for various crimes committed by the PKK at that time. Once “ISIS” reared it’s ugly head in Iraq and Syria, suddenly the Kurds weren’t as interested in a negotiated peace.

I understand how people can be confused by all of this. Because of AKP’s previous neoliberal dealings with the US and NATO, it’s hard to understand just how far the two groups have become over the past few years. And Erdogan’s statements, or at least statements attributed to Erdogan, have made it seem he’s all in on the Syrian regime change operation… and it’s possible that he is. However, you have to keep in mind that fallout between neoliberal leaders happens all the time and just because someone’s military is doing something, doesn’t mean THEY are doing it. A case in point: what the CIA and military wanted Kennedy to do in Cuba during the Bay of Pigs. Or Operation Northwoods. Or the creation of al Qaeda during the Carter administration. Do you really think he had a firm grasp of what was really going on in Afghanistan at that time?

Someone who has a really good understanding of what is happening in Turkey and Syria right now is Penny from Penny for your thoughts blog. You should read her work.

This article of Penny’s describes the PKK urban warfare tactics. This one explains the connection between “ISIS” and the Kurds in Syria (also shows how Kurds in Syria and taking land from the Syrian people for themselves)

As Kurdish fighters continue to annex Syrian territory, in breach of the ceasefire,  the oh so fierce terrorists simply decide to give a strategically necessary city to the YPG/PKK militia. Without a fight?

“The Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) have agreed with an offer of the Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham groups to allow them to leave Marea for Sandef without any clashes and surrender Marea to the Kurdish fighters.”

Thoughts? Penny For Your Thoughts

Think about it for a minute: up until the Russians did it, the US was not bombing “ISIS” oil convoys leaving Syria with their stolen oil caravans and even when they did, they dropped leaflets on the trucks warning them to leave them before they attacked them. Almost as if they had US contractors driving those trucks. The oil is then taken to Iraqi Kurdistan where it is loaded onto trucks bearing the Kurdistan Region Government logo and shipped by land through Turkey (who have a deal with the Kurdistan Regional Government) eventually ending up on boats headed mainly to Israel (who buys a great deal of cheap oil from Iraqi Kurdistan)

The Kurds are stealing land and oil from Syria in the east while the Syrian government fights the CIA’s terrorist groups waging their destabilization campaign against the Assad government in the west. Of course, we can’t talk about what the Kurds are really doing because we are told endlessly about how they are darlings of the fight against “ISIS” (which is also of our creation), the new “freedom fighters” as it were. And we get that endlessly from the MSM as well as the so-called “alternative” press. I fully expect them to launch an attack against this article not long after I put it up.

Anyway, as Penny points out, what’s happening in Turkey is a destabilization campaign and it’s designed for two things: to get Erdogan and the AKP out of power and to payoff our new freedom fighters in Turkey with a chunk of the nation they can add to what they will get from Iraq and Syria for the formation of Greater Kurdistan.

The Kurds aren’t fighting “ISIS” in Syria. They are depopulating the area so they can capture more and more land and even the president of this country made note just yesterday about how 3/4 of Syria is no longer under the control of the government of Syria. Well, that’s not “ISIS” doing that. It’s the Kurds and the CIA’s destabilization mercs.


I think it’s safe too say this has all the hallmarks of a false flag event. The Kurds would be foolish to provide the government with the means to demonize them and as we all know, “ISIS” goes and does what they are told when they aren’t making fake beheading videos.

So that leaves…. the Russians? (yeah, right) or a false flag? Which makes more sense to you?


UPDATE: Found this at RT:

“…The Kurdish commander maintains that Turkish authorities think this way: if 3 million Syrian Kurds gain independence, then 20 million Turkish Kurds would want to do the same immediately.

To prevent this scenario and dishearten Kurds striving to form a state of their own, Turkey’s ruling AKP party would do anything within its powers, including “inciting militants of Ahrar ash-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra [Al-Nusra Front] to attack Syrian regions inhabited by Kurds,” Karayılan said.” RT

So I guess it is all about busting off a piece of Turkey to join with Syrian Kurdistan and Iraqi Kurdistan, just like I thought.

There you have it, straight from the mouth of a Kurdish regional PKK commander. The plan for Greater Kurdistan laid bare. I rest my case.
