This is an excellent, must-read article from the Japan Times. Check it out!

via Istanbul rattled by signs of support for Islamic State | The Japan Times.

The article describes how support for ISIS has suddenly materialized on an Istanbul university campus. Other countries need to be alert for the same. It looks like the Turkish Government have been caught on the back foot.

Thoughts?

One response

  1. The Turkish state and people, like Erdogan, are sympathetic to ISIS and see them as a way to rebuild the Ottoman Empire, which was lost at the end of World War 1.

    As a NATO member, Turkey cannot be trusted and it is quite clear that students and others can become radicalized, with a nod and a wink from the Turkish authorities who on the one hand want EU membership and on the other want to empire build and make trouble.

    ISIS wants a global caliphate and now we see Boko Harem in Nigeria, Al Shabab in Somalia and other groupings in Thailand and the Far East wanting to link up with them.

    Furthermore, elements of the Taliban have expressed a desire to form an alliance with ISIS.

    Turkey needs to become a fully secular state and Erdogan needs to be brought to heel or replaced if he continues with his double game.

    A no fly zone in Syria, which Turkey is insisting on, will not be tolerated by the Russians who will then supply Assad with Iskander missiles making things very difficult for the West.

    The present tacit understanding between the Pentagon and Russia allows us to increase the pace of air strikes on ISIS and assisting the Kurds whilst recapturing Iraq’s oil. Doing Erdogan’s bidding upsets that understanding and risks global war.

    ISIS and these other terrorist groupings, including Korosan need to be hunted down by mercenaries and Terminator robots which the Japanese and Germans can mass produce in large quantities and which the Americans can deliver to areas surrounding the locations of these and similar terrorist groups.

    This and the use of mercenary forces supplemented by bounty hunters(including sacked British soldiers) solves the “Boots on the Ground” problem and B52’s operating at 50,000 feet and above can deliver “Big Blue” style Thermobaric bombs with the power of a Hiroshima type nuclear device to level open areas where ISIS and their fellow travellers operate.

    These areas designated as “free fire zones” would have no jungle cover and no North Vietnamese style tunnel systems to hide in and as a precautionary measure would be cleansed with napalm.

    Radicalized Muslims we catch boarding planes or making trouble here should be interned indefinitely, in the UK’s case, in the Outer Hebrides, with no visitation rights and no possibility of escape.
    Commentators in America like Glenn Beck of the Tea Party who say that we must understand Sykes Picot and why ISIS is fighting miss the point when they imagine that ISIS has limited ambitions confined only to the Middle East. The endgame for them, and others like them, is a Global Caliphate, in which there will be no place for people like him or for the other 5.2 billion of us who are not Muslims of any kind.

    It is either us or it is them and we have to be severe enough and ruthless enough to ensure that we prevail and that they are put to the sword quickly and permanently.
