    Erdogan Backtracks on Syria Goals After Call with Putin, Says Terrorists Are Only Target

    Turkey’s military operation in northern Syria does not target any country or individual, and is aimed only at terrorist groups, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said. He had earlier stated that Turkey was in Syria to “end the rule of the cruel Assad.”

    “The aim of the Euphrates Shield Operation [in northern Syria] is not any country or person, but only terrorist organizations,” Erdogan said Thursday, as quoted by the Hurryiet Daily News.

    “No one should doubt this issue that we have uttered over and over, and no one should comment on it in another fashion or try to derail it,” he added.

    The latest comments come in contrast to remarks Erdogan made on Tuesday, when he said Turkey’s operation in Syria, launched in late August, aimed “to end the rule of the tyrant [Syrian President] al-Assad who terrorizes with state terror.”

    This drew surprise from Russia, which asked for clarification of the remarks.

    According to Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov, this was provided when Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish leader Erdogan discussed the issue by phone on Wednesday.

    "I can only say that a telephone conversation between our president and Erdogan took place yesterday, and the topic [of Turkey’s presence in Syria] was addressed. Yes, he [Erdogan] gave an explanation," Ushakov told reporters on Thursday, without elaborating.

    On Thursday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Ankara’s operation in Syria is aimed at combating Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists and other armed terrorist groups.

    "Currently, in the framework of the ‘Euphrates Shield’ operation we are specifically working with our partners and allies. Our goal is to clear Syria, this region, from Daesh [Arabic pejorative term for Islamic State], from terrorists and Al-Nusra [Front] insurgents," Cavusoglu said, speaking at a joint press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in the Mediterranean town of Alanya.

    "We will continue to pursue a policy that is harmonic and coincides with the position of Russia – to search for and find a political solution to the conflict and to provide systematic humanitarian assistance," Cavusoglu added, as quoted by the Interfax.

    He stated that Turkey's policy on Syria "remains unchanged."

    "We are cooperating with other countries, but we think that our close cooperation with Russia will provide greater benefits," Cavusoglu said.

    Without a political solution on Syria, the fight against IS may prove ineffective, the Turkish foreign minister acknowledged following the meeting with his Russian counterpart.

    Lavrov stressed on Thursday that he expected close Russia-Turkey cooperation on Syria to help make a real contribution to the implementation of decisions by the international community.

    "Remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus,"or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice."

    Never trust a Turk.

    The Russians have invested too much already into saving the Assad Govt and Syria (and by extension Iran, Central Asia and Russia itself) from Turkish, Arab Gulf State & NATO sponsored Wahhabists to give up on it.

    If Erdogan's ambitions and impulsive behaviour gets the better of him he's going to live to regret it.

    ... or maybe not. I think having Turkey as a member of NATO has proven to be extremely problematic with the current government there. This fool nearly started WW3. I like Dana Rohrabacher's idea of a strategic alliance between The USA, Russia, India, and Japan as a stabilizing effort against China and the Islamic world. We cannot trust ANY Islamic government, but especially those who make no effort to be essentially secular or non-expansionist. I think Turkey and Saudi Arabia are BIG problems right now, and we have no business protecting or being in alliance with either one. The Saudis are funding mosques everywhere in the West, and filling them with Wahabbists. This is a direct threat that any Western leader should find unacceptable.

    If Erdogan launches a war in Syria against Assad and NATO choose to let themselves be dragged along with it (be aware that sowing Wahhabist madness across the Middle East including Syria was and still is NATO's original intention and that NATO has a choice here whether or not they're prepared to risk all) they'll be at war with Russia.

    Russia aren't going to back down against an alliance of degenerate US & EU homos, their sycophants (Australia, Canada etc) and cannibal Wahhabists.

    All bets are off once Turkey & NATO do something that stupid. It'll end bad for everybody.

    Neither are a big problem, if push came to shove and there was the will to act both could easily be squashed, like bugs.

    The big problems aren't Mohammedans or delusions-of-grandeur Turkish Sultans.

    The real problem is the degenerate 5th column operating with impunity within our midsts, who are in bed and alliances with these Mohammedan freaks and who are deliberately poisoning our societies and our well-being from the inside.
