“The Western world did not side with Turkey’s people and democracy following the coup. What’s more, it used the administration’s fight against terror organizations – FETO foremost among them – to criticize Turkey.”
The ongoing rift between the U.S. and the EU countries in NATO hints at the slow collapse of the Western alliance.
Turkey’s fight against FETO is not over, but gets even deeper as the full extent of the terrorist group’s secretive structure gradually emerges.
Western media needs to direct itself toward correct news and information sources about Turkey. However, in order to do so, it needs to give up its ideological approach to Turkey and Erdogan. If it does not do this, it will continue to lose its reputation while also causing anti-Western sentiment to rise in Turkey.
The significance of Sunday’s election for President Erdogan was clear: it represented a hurdle that he needed to overcome in order to gain political power through democratic means.
Too busy trying to make Erdogan fail, the Western media are running in contradiction with Turkey’s sociology.
The CHP and HDP are trying to hand in hand to prevent the Turkish government from increasing its fight against the PKK and FETO terrorist groups.
CHP’s reaction to Turkey’s legitimate offensive against the PKK formations in northern Iraq is irrational.
The recent agreement over Manbij between Turkey and the U.S. is a hopeful development; yet other important issues regarding Ankara’s security concerns and peace in Syria still remain.
The main opposition party’s presidential candidate Muharrem Ince is not acting like a traditional CHP candidate but acts within the context of Turkey’s changing sociology, imitating those in power.
