Turkey and TrumpI just finished listening to Hillary’s acceptance speech. After Trump’s acceptance speech, she needed to hit it out of the park.
She needed to to more than that, while projecting an image of strength. She needed to shake off her ‘establishment’ image and break away from the growing realization that the policies of Obama were a failure.
TrumpI listened to all of Trump’s speech last week, too. He knocked it out of the park. He spoke to the hopes and dreams of everyone ‘sitting on the fence’. He firmly placed himself as ‘anti-establishment’, and he successfully made himself look ‘presidential’.
He did everything that he needed to do to set himself firmly on the road to Washington.
If they MUST stop Trump, then they will need to use drastic measures, but I don’t think that they will do that.
Reagan did NOT change the course that America was on, and Trump won’t, either. The only thing that Trump MIGHT do, is make America stronger. And, with all the evil that America has done – and is doing – I don’t think that this is such a good thing.
TurkeyI believe that a far more important event happened over the past two weeks:
I find it strange that this coup was so poorly organized. They failed in every objective that they undertook, and I find that to be very strange. It’s almost as if the coup had been designed to fail. And, of course, it was.
Let me repeat that:
So, the colonels and captains thought that it was a real coup. The generals did too. Their soldiers thought that it was an ‘exercise’. But, some of the key players must have been secretly allied with Erdogan, and placed to sabotage the coup.
I believe in miracles, but not this one.
First, Erdogan will turn away from NATO and the US.We saw Erdogan do this before the coup, and some point to this turn towards Russia as a reason for why the coup was launched. Anything is possible, so we’ll hafta see.
What we HAVE seen are a number of ‘trial balloons’ floated in various Turkish newspapers. Each newspaper seemed to have a different ‘theory’ about the coup. And, it looks like Erdogan is running with the ‘theory’ that most Turks have accepted – that the US is to blame.
We’ll see how this plays out, but it looks to me like the anti-US rallies being staged at Incirlik Air Base point to where this is going.
Second, the Kurdish uprising will intensify.Erdogan is ‘cleaning out’ the upper echelons of the military, and this will do a great deal of damage to Turkey’s effort to suppress the Kurds. Erdogan reignited the war with the Kurds to gain power, and that war will only intensify.
However, the Kurds cannot hope to succeed without outside intervention. Israel has been supporting the Kurds for a while, as has Russia and the US. But, I’m not sure that this will continue. We will need to watch this.
Third, Turkey will move closer to Russia and Iran.Erdogan has been ruthless in his quest for power, and he will turn to anyone, anywhere to get it. And, he’s not ‘choosy’.
Right now the one with the greatest chance of helping him stay on top in Turkey, is Russia. Russia has the pipelines and the natural gas that Turkey wants, and Russia has proven willing to make the deals and the pipelines. Russia also has been a big threat to Turkey via the Kurds and the Armenians. A deal with Russia will remove that threat.
Iran would be a tougher deal to sell. Right now, the Gulf Arabs are allies with Turkey. The question is whether that will continue. The Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and the rest of the motley sheiks are a bit unstable. We’ll need to see if they can persuade Turkey to stay on their side.
But, if Turkey has a place in Gog and Magog – and I believe that it will – then, expect Turkish and Iranian rapprochement.
All of this is leading to the fulfillment of prophecy. It will be Ezekiel 38 and 39 come to life. It will be Isaiah 30 and Zechariah 12 and 13. It will be Ezekiel’s Fire.
