Color revolution against Erdogan?

The short-sighted policy of the Central Bank of Turkey to lower interest rates to 16% has accelerated the collapse of the Turkish lira (30% this year), which together with popular discontent over the high cost of living (rate year-on-year CPI in September of 20%), could unleash social outbreaks that, remotely controlled by the CIA, could lead to a Color Revolution in Turkey that would force the Turkish Army to strike against Erdogan.

Erdogan and the disease of Power

Erdogan’s thinking would be rigid and incorrigible: he does not take into account the opposite reasons, he only collects data or signs that confirm the prejudice to turn it into conviction and suffers from a delusion of greatness that causes that “the individual believes himself endowed with a talent and extraordinary power because the deities have chosen him for a high mission ”(Implementing the Erdoganist Islamist State). Erdogan’s paranoia would have been aggravated by being affected by the so-called “hydris syndrome” cited by the English doctor and politician David Owen in his work “The Hybris Syndrome: Busch, Blair ant the Intoxication of Power”, a term that comes from the Greek word “hybris” that means excess and that would have its paradigm in the de facto establishment of a theocratic government. Turkey would be an autocratic regime, a kind of invisible dictatorship supported by solid cohesion strategies such as mass manipulation, control of the media and social repression, obvious symptoms of a totalitarian drift. Thus, the implantation of the Islamist-Erdoganist state would be reflected in brushstrokes such as the implantation of the teaching of the Koran in primary school and restrictions on freedom of expression in the form of imprisonment of opposition journalists (according to Reporters Without Borders, Turkey would rank 153 out of 180 countries in the World Press Freedom Index in 2021).

Erdogan’s new geopolitical doctrine

Erdogan’s new geopolitical doctrine aims to stop gravitating in the Western orbit and become a regional power, which implies that loyalty to Anglo-Jewish interests in the Middle East would be in question. Thus, Erdogan refused to participate in the Western sanctions against Moscow and bought HQ-9 antiaircraft defense missiles from China and expressed his desire to join the New Silk Road allowing investments from the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) as well such as that of becoming, together with Russia, the sole suppliers of gas to Europe.

In this context, the Turkish intervention in Libya to install a military base that facilitates control of the Mediterranean gas routes and thus torpedo the construction of the EastMed underwater gas pipeline, (a joint initiative of Greece, Cyprus and Israel to transport gas from the reservoirs from the Southeastern Mediterranean to Europe) and the 900-kilometer TurkStream pipeline that will transport natural gas from Russia to Turkey would make Turkey together with Russia the sole suppliers of gas to the European Union.

To do this, invoking international law, Turkey demanded from Greece and Cyprus an exclusive economic zone (EEZ), to exploit the important gas reserves in the area, an attempt that collided with the frontal opposition of France that sent military ships, with which Erdogan would have earned the enmity of Macron and the rest of the European Union. However, the revitalization of the 2010 energy cooperation agreement between Iraq, Iran and Syria for the construction of the gas pipeline from South Pars to Homms that would connect the Persian Gulf with the Mediterranean Sea would have the blessings of Russia and would relativize the strategic importance of Turkey. in the Trans-Adriatic Gas Pipeline Project (TAP), to transport Azerbaijani gas to Europe as well as the relevant role of the United Arab Emirates as suppliers of crude oil to the West.

Color revolution against Erdogan?

Erdogan would have achieved the implementation of the Islamist-Erdoganist State, which would mean the termination of the Secular State that in 1923 implanted the Father of Modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal, who believed that “secularism and the Europeanization of Turkey were the most suitable means to transform your country into a modern industrial nation ”, with which Kemalism left as a legacy an identity crisis in Turkish society (Europeanized but not integrated into European institutions and Muslim but foreign to the Islamic world). However, the collapse of the Turkish lira (30% this year) and popular discontent over the high cost of living with an interannual rate of the CPI in September of 20%, could unleash social outbreaks that, remotely controlled by the CIA, could lead to in a Color Revolution in Turkey that would force the Turkish Army to give a coup against Erdogan to later be taken to the Courts accused of human rights attacks, abuse of power and illegitimate enrichment.

The Turkish Army (TSK) plays an important political role in the shadow, since they are considered the guardians of the secular and unitary nature of the Republic following the Kemalist postulates and the political parties judged as anti-secular or separatist by the Turkish Judicial Power (at the behest of the military establishment), they can be declared illegal. Already on the eve of the election of Abdullah Gül as President of Turkey (August 2007), the Armed Forces affirmed that “they will intervene decisively in the defense of secularism in the face of the efforts of certain circles to undermine the fundamental values of the republic that have clearly increased in recent times ”, a warning close to the rhetoric of the 1980 Military Coup and which could be extrapolated to the current political situation characterized by the repression and restriction of freedoms and the economic crisis in which Turkey is immersed. Thus, society would invite the Turkish army (TSK) to carry out a “virtual” or “postmodern” coup that would end Erdogan’s mandate, (recalling the “soft coup” of 1997, when the Kemalist generals seized power from the Government of President Necmettin Erbakanpor, who was leading an Islamist coalition). This coup would have the blessings of Washington and Moscow in the framework of the new world geopolitical scenario that emerged after the return to the recurrent endemism of the Cold War between the US and Russia, leaving Syria and Turkey as continental aircraft carriers of Russia and the US respectively.
