Turks heed the warning they received, as I knew they would

Turks heed the warning they received, as I knew they would

There’s no doubt that the July 15, 2016, “attempted coup” in Turkey was in fact a military operation. Somebody wanted the Turks to stop doing destructive things. Turkey is a former empire. All former empires—except Great Britain—want to relive their glory days. The easiest way to become “important” on the world stage is to cause trouble. Traditionally, we reward troublemakers such as North Korea and Russia. We appease them.

Well, an unidentified group of people decided that instead of appeasement, the Turks deserved the mother of all warnings.

It’s clear that Turkey is mending its ways.

Turks collapsed

By my calculations, it took about 25 minutes to turn Turkey upside down. I’ve looked and looked and looked, but I can find no real evidence of Turkish military skill. In contrast, the video below shows 100 Arab League strategic special operators launching a surprise attack from three different directions, breaching a rock wall, and racing to the enemy’s rear. It took them two minutes and thirty seconds.

This assault is said to be a mass retreat of the Palestinian al-Quds Brigades from Handarat Camp, Aleppo. That’s a lie. These are men of the al-Quds Brigades.




Fat or old or…challenged.


And all are smokers.

The troops below are in peak physical condition. They have the heaviest body armor I’ve ever seen, and their weapons and equipment include unidentified rocket launchers, strange headgear, and radios for contacting aircraft. So far this is the only video released of Arab strategic special forces in combat.

The filmmaker added the voices and “firing” in post-production. Despite the many machine guns heard, only three men appear to be slightly wounded. The Arab League hides in plain sight. That’s why the Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki logo appears on the video. Unconventional warriors create massive confusion. They win by making it impossible to know what’s really happening.

Regardless of what anyone says, the video above is not a retreat. It’s professional special operators carrying out a masterful assault at blinding speed. Look carefully: Where did they come from?

I know where they came from, but I won’t tell you. You can see light machine gunners run to the right to cover the assault, and the soldiers bringing up the rear are wearing something that allows aerial platforms to identify the last men. That way the commanders know that the operation was successful.

Never seen Turks do this

When you carry out an assault, all the enemy has to do is pull back his center and fall on you from the sides.


It’s called “elastic defense.”

To avoid falling into the trap of elastic defense, Arab League strategic special operators infiltrate into the enemy’s positions and then attack from behind the front lines. That’s why you see men running to the right in the video above. They’re shooting into the backs of the enemy, who was looking in the wrong direction.

All armed forces keep their headquarters and supplies at the rear, far behind the front lines. Therefore Arab League special operators go as fast as they can to the rear, to capture or kill commanders and destroy supplies.

A “panicked retreat”? No. They’re advancing, wearing next-generation body armor that allows them to survive storms of bullets.

It’s unheard of for 100 operators to attack simultaneously.

Amend that: It was unheard of. Until now.

Turks listened

So how do I know that Turkey heeded the warning it was given? Because of this.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday he was dropping all lawsuits against those charged with insulting him.

“For one time only, I will be forgiving and withdrawing all cases against the many disrespects and insults that have been levelled against me,” he said.

“I feel that if we do not make use of this opportunity correctly, then it will give the people the right to hold us by the throat. So I feel that all factions of society, politicians first and foremost, will behave accordingly with this new reality, this new sensitive situation before us.”

Does that make sense to you? Erdoğan is in the process of creating a personality cult to rival that of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the “Father of the Turks.”

Why would he suddenly drop all his lawsuits?

“This new sensitive situation before us”? What’s he talking about?

My guess is that he’s signaling his surrender.

[Erdoğan] hinted the United States could be behind the failed plot.

“My people know who is behind this scheme … they know who the superior intelligence behind it is, and with these statements you are revealing yourselves, you are giving yourselves away,” he said.

The Turks are fully aware that we had nothing to do with Operation Erdoland, but at least they’re admitting that a “superior intelligence” took them down a peg. It had to be done.

Turks committed war crimes

Below is what contributed to the launching of Operation Erdoland.

No. Those aren’t white phosphorus artillery rounds. The Turks are smart enough to not fire white phosphorus at civilian centers, which is an unambiguous war crime. It’s entirely prohibited to use any form of incendiary weapon against civilians.

Instead, the Turks used illumination rounds, almost certainly the American 155mm M485.


The M485 has a “candle” that burns to provide illumination at night. A small drogue parachute on the rear of the round pulls out the main parachute, which allows the candle to drop slowly.

You can see in the video below that the rounds have a drogue chute and a main chute.

Here’s the drogue chute.


And here’s the main chute.


Another main chute.


From the US Army Field Manual 7-8, The Infantry Platoon and Squad (Infantry, Airborne, Air Assault, Ranger), 1980, page G-8.


You don’t fire illumination rounds in the daytime. Not unless you’re using them as incendiary weapons.

The Turkish army deliberately set the fuses on the illumination rounds so that the candles would begin burning right above the ground. That way, the candles would set buildings and foliage on fire. For this reason, somebody destroyed the Turkish armed forces. This proves that there was no coup. The Turkish military devised what it thought was a clever way to commit war crimes out in the open.

In support of Erdoğan.

Liars and imbeciles accused Israel of using weaponized white phosphorus on civilians. In reality, this is the M825A1 smoke round.


It doesn’t start fires or burn people. The felt wedges inside are incapable of starting fires or burning people.


Not Turks. Hamas

These photos show Hamas white phosphorus 120mm mortar rounds exploding over the heads of Palestinians.



Those are irregular chunks of solid white phosphorus, not felt wedges.

The green arrow below marks the nose cone of a mortar round.

Hamas committed war crimes against its own people in order to blame Israel. Every “human rights” organization knows it.

Somebody destroyed the Turkish armed forces on July 15, 2016. The Turkish military was committing war crimes by using incendiary weapons on civilians. Since January of this year, somebody has destroyed fifteen Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad tunnels in Gaza. The Hamas Nokhba are the tunnel fighters.


A huge number are now dead. Their leaders are defecting to Israel, bringing with them information on the secret tunnels.

The Israelis are not destroying the Palestinian tunnels. You know who is? The same people who crippled the Turkish armed forces. They oppose this.


I support Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and everybody else working for improvement. But guess what? It doesn’t matter if you support or oppose this or that nation, religion, sect, or ethnicity.

In the new Middle East, you can hate anyone you want. You just can’t act on it.

Live and let live, or you die.
