Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US President Barack Obama have colluded to take advantage of the recent terrorist attacks in Turkey and carry out a regime change plot against Damascus, says an analyst.
According to an article written by Mike Whitney and published on Eurasia Review, the US president “seems to have realized that his Takfiri proxy-warriors aren’t ruthless enough to remove Assad, so he’s decided to team up with Sultan Erdogan instead.”
Turkey has been one of the countries accused of supporting the militants operating against the government in Syria since early 2011.
Erdogan claimed on October 1, 2014 that Turkey will fight ISIL and other “terrorist” groups in the region, but that Ankara will not relent in its determination to work for the removal of President Assad.
“Obama has… thrown his lot with Erdogan, because the Pentagon bigshots finally realize they’re going to need boots on the ground if they want regime change in Syria,” Whitney wrote in his article.
“That’s the basic gameplan. Naturally, the media can’t explain what’s really going on or it would blow Obama’s cover. But who doesn’t know that this whole campaign is aimed at removing Assad?” he said.
