A couple of days ago while I was watching a televised debate over the newly-elected president of the United States, Barrack Obama, I heard the following conversation; "Question: Is the election of Obama a part of a project? Answer: No doubt about it." Yes, we saw a unique reaction in Turkey when he won.
Obama and Turkey
Our professional conspiracy theorists came up with a scenario; even if it seems Obama has come to power through a democratic election process, it is in fact nothing other than an implementation of a project by the deep state! Meaning, the deep state, from the beginning, had prepared Obama as the Democrat candidate and then brought Hillary Clinton up as his rival. But in the race, the deep state supported Obama and preferred John McCain as Republican candidate.
In order to weaken McCain, the deep state pushed Sarah Palin in as his vice-presidential nominee. While McCain and Obama were neck-and-neck in the race, the deep state this time provoked the economic crisis in order to stimulate Obama supporters. In the end, Obama won!
An awesome scenario, is it not? Not to admire the power of imagination behind this is impossible. Political scientists in Europe see Obama’s victory as proof of Americans’ enormous ability for self-renewal and lament not having a leader like him. But they err! We should reveal the facts to them! However, Europe is the home of the great philosopher, mathematician and scientist Ren Descartes. "I think therefore I am," he said. And suspicion is at the bottom of thought. You will not entertain every single thought that enters your mind. You will ask yourself, I wonder if this is true. Of course, this is a difficult process. If you stick to a pattern of thought you like and if you adopt it, you are comforted each time you apply it! Obama’s remarks before the election are a cause of concern.
That is correct. For instance, he said he would ask NATO allies to send more troops to Afghanistan. But we are not obliged to say yes to him all the time. There is nothing more natural than a country struggling with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, terror to turn down greater troop deployment to Afghanistan.
Obama also described the Turkish military in Cyprus as "occupation forces" but the criteria he has introduced for a settlement of the Cyprus issue are not much different from what we offer, together with the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, or TRNC. Besides, we all know talks between Turkish and Greek leaders on the island will not end with a solution. We are mostly concerned by his remark that he would back a bill in favor of the so-called Armenian genocide allegations.
Time will tell if this was only an election gimmick or not. U.S. presidents, however, send messages every April 24, although they refrain from using the term "genocide." American Presidents issue statements in which they stress that 1.5 million Armenians were killed, that this is a tragedy in the history of mankind which should not be forgotten. Let us do our best to prevent a bill in favor of Armenian allegations but let us also keep in mind that turning this into a problem in bilateral relations is against our interests. On the other side, the best way to curb a negative development is to complement and fortify the new environment, created by Turkish President Abdullah Gül’s initiative in Turkish-Armenian relations, with solid content.
Will Obama back the formation of an independent Kurdish state in the north of Iraq? The establishment of such a state will end with the disintegration of Iraq, the formation of a Shia state in the south and dangerously increase Iranian influence in the Gulf region. Why does the United States want all this? The more we make realistic assessments, the more our policies will be right on the money.
