The thing is, unless you are acting within the parameters of the participant intelligence networks, you're never going to know exactly what's going
on, and all the speculation is simply welcome distraction from the real issues being played out by the few. All who believe this to be simple
political maneuvering on the part of Turkey, or warmongering on the part of Israel, are missing the bigger picture.
The conflicts of this region are thousands of years in the making, and the forces in motion are of much greater consequence than the political
machinations of individual nation states.
Anyone who cannot see the dangers, both local immediate, and wider-region in the longer term, of a Muslim-Brotherhood caliphate flanking Israel (with
the backing of Iran), with the popular support of near-billions of Muslims globally, is an absolute, unequivocal, idiot.
Western civilisation will be at risk of total destruction if the 'Arab Spring' continues as it does currently (having mutated, hijacked utterly by
fundamentalist Islamists with a millennium-spanning and deliberately conditioned hatred of Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists & Secular Atheists
alike, possessing an agenda to construct an Islamic Caliphate with global power..) We may not like some of those that rule here in the West, but
ultimately, we enjoy much greater freedoms with them than do those unfortunates who live under Islamic rule. Our leaders have been aggressive in the
ME for reasons far beyond the scope of most men, and that will now roll out into North Africa for the same reasons, as I've expected for years - and
yet not even they fully comprehend the risks posed by the latest developments in the Islamic world. I'm basing that conclusion on some of the policy
decisions & political posturing in Britain & the USA of late
Unless they're playing a clever double-bluff, in which case, Kudos are due.
PS - I'm fully aware that I'm effectively guessing, based on limited information, and therefore my opinions may not accurately reflect the true state
of affairs; however, I know as certain truth some things that others don't know, and in light of various developments over the past few years, I have
a feeling that I might be onto something.
