Could Iran-Crisis Provide Cover for Erdogan?

Could Trump’s confrontation with Iran allow Turkish President Erdogan to precipitate a crisis with Greece? Erdogan has already positioned oil exploration ships with naval escorts threatened to drill in both the Greek and Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zones. Turkey has asserted its right to drill, not just off Cyprus but anywhere in its (claimed) EEZ, in diplomatic notes warning EU countries not to interfere. Could Erdogan take advantage of American distraction should shooting start in the Persian Gulf? History indicates that …

  1. State department traitor Patrick Theros ,again provides us with another fake news narrative to fool the public as to who benefits from the crisis in Iran, and it is definitely not America!

    The beneficiaries and promoters of the crisis and war in Iran ..are Robert Menendez Benjamin Netanyahue, and Sheldon Adelson and the Jewish pro israeli lobbies

    The indicted Menendez admitted taking hundreds of thousands of dollars.he calls gifts and millions of dollars from Jewish lobbies to represent Israeli interest!

    The “Pay to Play” Menendez, took hundreds of thousands of dollars of embezzled money from his “Best Friend” a nice Jewish doctor now in prison for stealing 8 million dollars from Medicare!

    Trump:recieved $259 million given by some of the GOP’s top supporters to boost his campaign in 2016 and support Republican congressional and senate campaigns .

    Those funds came from Sheldon and Miriam Adelson who have made no secret, both through public statements and funding think tanks that support military action against Iran, of their desire for the United States to destroy the Islamic Republic.

    Adelson, are the biggest donors to Trump and the GOP, contributed $205 million to Republicans in the past two political cycles and reportedly sent $35 million to the Future 45 Super PAC that supported Trump’s presidential bid.

    Israel and Saudi Arabia ..have created this crisis..the same one bombing Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and now using our country to bomb an enemy of theirs!

  2. One reason that I hope for peace in the world, beyond it being the Christian thing to do, is that if there is another war somewhere that greatly involves the United States, Russia, Iran, China, North Korea, and/or Venezuela, that event will be chosen by Erdogan as a time to launch aggression against Greece and Cyprus.

    In addition, the 1974 aggression against Cyprus came at the height of the US Watergate Crisis. So, I guess that is also a reason to hope that the current US political rivalry does not get any worse.

  3. An Iran crisis which is coming closer and closer by the day is almost sure to take place. No one wants another war, especially when our economy and country are on the upswing. Erdogan wants this war with Iran, he will use it to start something with Greece and possibly grab an island or worse. Neither the US or Nato will make any effort to stop him. Hopefully his will piss off Putin with something and maybe Russia would intervene, with the premise of saving Greece from turkey, but they will actually have other interests.

  4. Niko. No war on Iran by the U.S and Israel unless they have totally gone insane to destroy 80 million citizens of the world.because they have complied with all the conditions of the International agreement with the most powerful countries of the world which prohibits them from developing Nuclear warheads..which Israel and the U.S possess!

    Let’s be clear, the EU countries will not join the U.S and Israel in any attack , and more importantly, Turkey the second largest standing army i Nato and part of the Saudi Arabia, U.S and Israel regime change wars, will not cooperate with the U.S.and that is a game changer for U.S efforts to genocide another country of the Middle Eaat with oil!

    Turkey continues to buy oil and gas from Iran , unlike Greece, who again demonstrates who their daddy is!

    Edrogan, unlike Tsipras, has purchased in the interest of his country ..the undisputed most advanced anti ballistic system in the world from RussiA..because it make the f-35 obsolete! Tsipras leaves Greece defenseless to serve his masters!

    Turkey is attempting to get there terrorist rebels and the terrorist rebels of America out of Syria ..and specifically IDLIB, where Russia and Syria plan to shortly launch their offensive to liberate Idlib from the proxy armies of the U.S and Israel!

    Forget PutiN,.HE IS SITTING BACK ENJOYING THE IRAN CRISIS AND ALL THE OTHER ACTIONS OF THESE DEGENERATES IN OUR COUNTRY, WHICH EXPOSE A TOTALITARIAN REGIME, THREATENING THE WORLD!….

  5. The most dangerous times for Greece were during the impeachments of Nixon and Clinton: Cyprus & Imia

    1. GREECE AND CYPRUS …ARE CERTIFIED PROPERTY OF TH E UNITED STATES , NATO , AND EU…AND RUN BY THE APPROVED AND CHOSEN RULING PARTIES OF THE ORGANAIZED CRIME FAMILIES OF AMERICA AND ISRAEL!

      AS LONG AS THEY REPRESENT U.S ECONOMIC, POLITICAL , AND MILITARY INTERESTS THEIR LEADERS AND GOVENMENT ARE UNDER THE MOB ..”PROTECTION RACKET’ WHICH WAS DEVELOPED BY 1930’S CHICAGO MOBSTERS TO TAKE OVER LEGITIMATE BUSINESSES!

      DO YOU THINK …THE U.S . WILL ALLOW TURKEY TO CUT INTO THEIR TURF…AND INVADE GREECE…AND HAND IT OVER TO ANY OF THEIR GLOBAL COMPETITORS!

      ‘MAKOS…YOU ARE SIMPLY THE VICTIM OF AN ILLUSION BY NEO NAZI GLOBALIST WHO USE FEAR TO EXTRACT AND TAKE OVER THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD !

      TDDAY, WE IN AMERICA ARE PAYING FOR ANOTHER MILITARY BASE IN POLAND CALLED ..AND BELIEVE ME OR NOT ….FORT TRUMP WHICH NOW WILL BE OCCUPIED BY 4000 U.S TROOPS ..TO PROTECT THE GOVERNMENT OF POLAND NOT ITS PEOPLE AGAINST THE “BOOGEYMAN” THREAT FROM RUSSIA!

      JUST THINK THE SAME OCCUPYING TROOPS ..JUST TORE UP AN AGREEMENT WITH RUSSIA ..THAT PROHIBITED SHORT RANGE NUCLEAR WARHEADS FROM BEING DEPLOYED IN EUROPE OR RUSSIA! TODAY , RUSSIA OFFICIALLY HAS NOW RESPONDED AND WILL DEPLOY SHORT RANGE NUCLEAR WARHEADS SPECIFICALLY TARGETING NATO EUROPEAN COUNTRIES LIKE POLAND AND GREECE!

      iT IS THE SAME COUNTRY..WHO TORE UP AN INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT WITH iRAN TO PROHIBIT THE DEVELOPMENT OF NUCLEAR WARHEADS IN iRAN,AND NOW THREATENS TO OBLITERATE THEM

    2. Makos, usually I am the one getting a long rant from Michael. Today is your turn–although you said nothing that was untrue.

      Hang in here and keep commenting anyway Makos.

  6. The staunch ally Emmanuel Macron
    Will stand behind and bring jambon
    And the new leadership in Brussels
    Will no doubt provide extra muscles.

  7. Hey John…I am sure Makos ..can comprehend that my so called rant merely pays tribute to Maxos and others that that our leaders , representatives and TNH media frauds..perceive it necessary to lie to him , in order to wage wars, but it is not a tribute to him to so easily be fooled! How pathetic you can’t tell the difference between truth and compassion for Maxos …to advise him that I do not believe Greece will ever be invaded by Turkey ..and which I have highlighted to Maxos!

    John Sakelaris..you now defend theory…rather than condeming what our government is actual is doing to the world…and today the country of libya invaded by the U.S and Nato to overthrow the leader of libya has just watched 45 migrants in a home get mutilated by an airstrike by just one of the Sunni Muslim tribes supported by Ambassador Stevens and Hillary Clinton who sodomized and murdered the leader of libya ..and after 6 years has turned one of the most progressive states in North Africa in to Ghost town of dried blood!

    .Sorry John if you feel abused…but I have no patience with people who continue to apologize for the decent and degenerate behavior of the U.S regime!, who has killed 22 million non anglo foreigners since ww 2 under they myth that they are the self appointed policemen of the entire world!.

    Maxos, what you state was theory not fact., as is my theory that Turkey will never invade Greece, for the sad reason …that it is U.S property!

    1. Turkey will never invade Greece? Well, I hope you are right about that.

      I did not know you had reached that conclusion.

  8. Apparently, John, it seems like you never know the truth..about who really has invaded Greece!!

    Al Capone Trump, lucky Luciano Pompeo , Joe Gambino Bolton, of the U.S crime family, Bugsy Segal Netanyahue of the notorious Jewish crime family and the Islamic mobsters from Saudi Arabia and Turkey are an International organized Crime family who orchestrated all the wars in the Middle East to take over the economic,political,and military sovereignty of the world..

    They have resurrected the policies of the “Black Hand” crime families that terrorized legitimate businesses in Chicago and New York in the early 1920’s.

    It was the policy of the Mobsters in 1920’s to advise legitimate business owners in New York thru a letter with a picture of a “Black Hand” that there were” dangerous people” in their Neighborhood who could harm their businesses and family, but the Black Hand (Bolton } could protect them, if they would share their profits with them, and pledge allegiance to the Black hand.gangs

    When a business owner refused their offer their businesses would be bombed to demonstrate why they needed the “Black Hand” to operate their businesses and be safe!

    It the business owners still refused to pledge allegiance to the Black Hand, he would be bombed until his business was destroyed and he was killed.!

    Now you know why Tsipras and Anastasiades have pledged allegiance to these mobsters.not to protect Greeks ..but themselves!

    Edrogan..insubrodinate mafia
