Syria: Turkey’s Erdogan Thinks He Is The New Sultan Of The Ottoman Empire, ‘In His Heart He Thinks He Is A Caliph’


Russia Today – “In an exclusive interview with RT, President Bashar Assad said that the conflict in Syria is not a civil war, but proxy terrorism by Syrians and foreign fighters. He also accused the Turkish PM of eyeing Syria with imperial ambitions.

Assad told RT that the West creates scapegoats as enemies – from communism, to Islam, to Saddam Hussein. He accused Western countries of aiming to turn him into their next enemy.

While mainstream media outlets generally report on the crisis as a battle between Assad and Syrian opposition groups, the president claims that his country has been infiltrated by numerous terrorist proxy groups fighting on behalf of other powers.

In the event of a foreign invasion of Syria, Assad warned, the fallout would be too dire for the world to bear…

RT: There are many people who were convinced a year ago that you would not make it this far. Here again you are sitting in a newly renovated presidential palace and recording this interview. Who exactly is your enemy at this point?

BA: My enemy is terrorism and instability in Syria. This is our enemy in Syria. It is not about the people, it is not about persons. The whole issue is not about me staying or leaving. It is about the country being safe or not. So, this is the enemy we have been fighting as Syria.

RT:  Why has Turkey, which you call a friendly nation, become a foothold for the opposition?

BA: Not Turkey, but only Erdogan’s government in order to be precise. Turkish people need good relations with the Syrian people. Erdogan thinks that if Muslim Brotherhood takes over in the region and especially in Syria, he can guarantee his political future, this is one reason. The other reason, he personally thinks that he is the new sultan of the Ottoman and he can control the region as it was during the Ottoman Empire under a new umbrella. In his heart he thinks he is a caliph. These are the main two reasons for him to shift his policy from zero problems to zero friends.” Read more.

    As I said a few days ago: Obama and Erdogon are best friends. The entity usually greets the old Turk and kisses his face on both jowls. I wonder if the egregious precedent also licks the PM’s lower cheeks? Or does the chameleon and thief prefer the middle?

    Thanks ICA. I had to go back to the archives and reread rise of islamic turkey. This clears a lot of questions for me. Including what role nato will play. I was a little surprised to see the alliance of the muslim brotherhood with turkey,but that explains what role we’re playing. The pecking order is quickly coming about. The alignments are about to be solidified. Looking up.
