Communists' reply on the conflict between Turkey and Russia at the Syrian border

Communist Party, Turkey (KP) released a statement replying to PM Davutoğlu as:
"You are the biggest threat!"

ICP, 25th November 2015

In the aftermath of Turkey's downing a Russian warplane and death of the pilot by groundfire by the rebels at the Syrian border, Communist Party, Turkey (KP) released a statement replying to Prime Minister's statement.

On the downing of the Russian plane, PM Ahmet Davutoğlu had earlier said:

 “We completely reject having plans to occupy on any other country's land. After repeated warnings, according to engagement rules, and despite all confirmations, it is our international right and duty to take any measure against anyone who violates our air space or land borders.” 

KP's response to Davutoglu is as follows:


A gang is ruling this country: a mindless, irrational and immoral gang. Today, we have witnessed this fact once again.

Turkey's southern borders are under severe violation. ISIS gangs, oil convoys sponsoring dark Islamist savageness and Erdogan's family, jihad squads who were recruited in our cities, TNT for bombs to be blown up in our city squares, wounded jihadist psychopaths pass to be threated in our hospitals, they all cross these borders. And the Prime Minister babbles about 'whoever violates our airspace or land borders'.

All the state officials in Turkey have been mobilized, from the top to the district governors, to escalate the war and massacres taking place in our neighbouring country Syria. And the Prime Minister shamelessly talks about 'not having plans to occupy any other country's land'. 

Our country is indeed under a big threat. 

This threat is the reactionary coalition whose so-called "foreign policy" of Turkey is to turn it into the patron of Islamist gangs and who thinks that dragging the country from one adventure to another is a show of power. AKP and its coalition partners including ISIS, Arab Sheiks, Al-Qaeda and numerous intelligence services is the biggest threat we are faced with.

Therefore it is irrelevant whether the Russian airplane did or did not violate our borders.

Whether NATO, who pulls the strings of the reactionary gang ruling our country had a role in this attack, whether it approved the attack or not and whether it will isolate Erdogan or not, these questions are of no importance after a certain point.

Whether Putin, who is pursuing his country's own interests is really the liberator of the peoples of the region or not, is of no importance.

What is important is the right of the Syrian people and its legitimate political presence to defend itself from the Islamist terror.

What is important is the right of our people to get rid of war mongers and impertinent gangs.

What is important is to fight against imperialism and reactionism; to overthrow this system itself.

The threat is obvious, so is the path to be taken to defeat it."
