‘Turkey Turns Around’ could be today’s headlines on the Middle East military build-up.
Apparently Ankara’s ‘blind eye’ has had the bandage removed and can now see the consequences of having tacitly allowed Iran to supply truckloads of weapons to Syria through Turkey. It is claimed this is because Iran has failed to give the required assurances over its development of nuclear weapons:
In fact, as debkafile’s military and intelligence sources report exclusively, Ankara changed course against Iran after Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu visited Tehran on Jan. 5. His mission was to warn Iranian leaders including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad whom he met that Turkey will not stand for Iran acquiring a nuclear bomb and would act to disrupt its program.
The full report makes intriging reading for those who follow developments.
I suspect this action may indicate PM Erdogan is indisposed on health grounds, as reported in the closing paragraphs of my posting We Are A Christian Country.
