NATO Rules - NATO Behavior

(3/30 Washington, DC) Will NATO take any action to censure Turkish officials for planning to attack and kill their own citizens? Turkey joined NATO in 1952.

The following exchange took place at meeting of senior Turkish government officials last week:

Turkish Foreign Affairs Minister - Ahmet Davutoğlu
"Prime Minister said that in current conjuncture, this attack (on Suleiman Shah Tomb) must be seen as an opportunity for us."

Turkish Chief of National Intelligence - Hakan Fidan
"I'll send 4 men from Syria, if that's what it takes. I'll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey; we can also prepare an attack on Suleiman Shah Tomb if necessary." Transcript here or here

The Turkish intelligence chief planned to send a covert team into Syria for the sole purpose of firing missiles at a city or cities in Turkey. Syrian terrorists were to be named as the culprits. Why?

The officials plotted to attack their own country and injure/kill their own citizens for political advantage in local elections on March 30. The AK Party faced a serious challenge following weeks of leaked wiretapped conversations exposing pervasive AK Party corruption.   A rapid, violent, and strong response by embattled Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan would have made the party look strong and distracted from the real issues in the elections.

When factions within a nation cause their nation to be attacked and then blame the attack on another nation or group, it is called a false flag attack.

The meeting tape was released on YouTube two days ago. President Abdullah Gul verified the authenticity of the tape when he called its release "an act of espionage." In order for release of the audio file to be counted as espionage, the meeting must have taken place.

NATO rules

The North Atlantic Treaty was ratified in 1949. Turkey was a founding member. In the founding treaty for NATO, members pledge "to refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force in any manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations." North Atlantic Treaty, Washington, DC April 4, 1949

We are safe to assume that plotting to fire missiles at your own citizens to boost elections odds represents a flagrant violation of the North Atlantic Treaty.

Without any doubt, the four senior Turkish officials at the meeting plus Prime Minister Erdogan and President Gul, who failed to condemn the false flag plan, are all guilty of violating the letter and the intent of the NATO charter.

This sounds like an open and shut case. NATO officials must be working away at censuring the Erdogan-Gul government with a threat to expel Turkey from the alliance if any of the plotters remain in the government.

NATO behavior

Based on recent history, NATO has no basis to sanction or expel Turkey for the false flag plan
