Ankara officials "don't even understand to what extent they are making a tragic mistake".Instead of making peace" and cooperating politically and economically with Russia, they're going the wrong way. They hope America offers support. "This is absolutely wrong."
It has much more to lose than gain. Internally, "Turkey (could) seriously deteriorate and we could see in the future, not in a distant future, a very different Turkey on the map of the world." It may not be what Ankara wants.
Washington, EU nations, and Israel ruthlessly vilify Iran, hammer it with lawless sanctions, falsely make existential threat claims, deny its legitimate media European satellite distribution, and threaten imperial war.
Expect the worst ahead in some form because it's planned. Waging war on free expression alone shows the moral depravity of EU states.
On October 17, Press TV headlined "Ban on Iran channels driven by fear of truth: Top IRIB official."
Deputy Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) Mohammad Sarafraz said, "They think by silencing those outlets (free alternative media), they would be able to control the flow of news and information and at the same time, cover up the events as they see fit."
"They are now facing all (sorts of) challenges. On the one hand, they face domestic threats and on the other, they fear independent entities who pose a threat to their existence. That's why they are seeking to mute them."
Bet on dirty Washington and Israeli hands involved in what happened. At the same time, anti-Iranian terrorists were brought in from the cold.
The State Department delisted the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO or MEK). Formerly it was designated a foreign terrorist organization (FTO). Known assassins are now valued US allies - openly, not covertly.
