Turkey Lectures Syria on Killing Militants - Then Kills Militants http://landdestroyer.blogspot.com/2011/09/turkey-lectures-syria-on-killing.html
More recently, as Turkey's prime minister lectures neighboring Syria on its bid to crush foreign-funded, armed militants attempting to overthrow the Assad government, the Turkish government is preparing to augment its compliment of Israeli drones with a deployment of US Predator drones on its soil. The Associated Press reported in an article titled, "Turkey: US likely to deploy Predator drones," that Turkey has been "pressing for the drones in an escalating war against Kurdish rebels." Turkey, in addition to rolling tanks into towns suspected of harboring militants, and the deployment of drones, has also strafed suspected rebel stronghold with airstrikes and conducted sweeping nationwide mass arrests. In other words Turkey is doing everything Syria is doing, plus what Qaddafi in Libya was accused of doing, only fully sanctioned by the West, with arms supplied by the West, and under the muted coverage provided by the Western media.
George Soros' Amnesty International (page 10) and Human Rights Watch along with the myriad of disingenuous rights advocate groups propped up by the US State Department via the National Endowment of Democracy, including Freedom House, Reporters Without Borders and International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) are all hypocritically, though predictably quiet regarding Turkey's actions. Turkey is thus far an obedient client state of Wall Street and London, and therefore is protected, perhaps even being extorted regarding its current struggle with Kurdish separatists.
In reality, all nations have the right to protect themselves from armed militant groups that seek to carve up their nation with violent separatist ambitions. This includes Syria, Libya, and Turkey, though Turkey's penchant for unilaterally crossing borders in pursuit of militants is an egregious transgression against its neighbors' sovereignty. Erdogan, despite being perpetually bent in prostration before his Western backers, must realize that at any given time his nation's bloody and protracted campaign against the Kurds can (and will) be portrayed as a crime against humanity and the same pretenses used to invade Libya or levy sanctions against Syria can easily befall him. In many ways, this might explain why Erdogan has been so servile toward the West to begin with.
