Another NEC-SE prediction came true. This is the fourth this week and the fourth that was predicted in March 2015.
“Turkish fighter jets, which on Friday attacked Islamic State targets in Syria, have launched a wave of airstrikes in northern Iraq, targeting camps of the militant Kurdistan Workers’ Party for the first time in four years, the prime minister’s office said Saturday.”
“The Iraq incursion, which began late Friday and continued into Saturday, effectively ended an unstable two-year cease-fire between the Turkish government and the Kurdish militants, known by the initials P.K.K. After 30 years of conflict that claimed at least 40,000 lives, the two sides reached a fragile peace in 2013, though there have been a few minor clashes since then.”
On 14 JUL 15 NEC-SE posted the article: Would Turkey go to war against the Kurds? In the article we said: “With the Iranian victory in the nuclear negotiations Turkey will now have to reinforce its boarder requirements from now until the end of the month. NEC-SE was the first to report this and asks its readers to look at this article and refer back to our Turkish election assessment and the affects which they will have on Turkish internal politics reference their need to project force into Syria and Iraq.”
On 16 JUL 15 NEC-SE posted the article: Do you believe that the KRG has lost political favor with the various nations in the world and within the region? In the post we stated: “On 21 APR 15 I participated in a round table interview on Chuck-Morse-Speaks. Mr. Morse other guest was Mr. Matthew VanDyke from Sons of Liberty International. We were asked questions from the Assyrian’s military and protection forces and their future, and KRG influence in the region and on those forces. NEC-SE did not post this interview because we wanted to hold off until the changes, which I had spoken about in the interview, started to manifest themselves on the ground.”
On 30 JUN 15 NEC-SE posted: To hold Northern Syria Turkey may also have to conduct operations in Northern Iraq. In the article we stated: “On 29 MAR 15 NEC-SE stated: “Furthermore, Turkey now has possibly 60 to 90 days to determine whether closing the border will still allow them the regional influence and control they need over northern Syria and Iraq to be a regional hegemony and thus preventing further Iranian influence and further Kurdish territorial expansion within and along its southern boarders. If closing the borders does not achieve this aim you may be assured that Turkey will be forced to take military action in the KRG footprint and in northern Syria to create a security or buffer zone along key terrain against regional competitors, (Iran), and to ensure that fighting does not spill over into southern turkey.”
“With Iran having indirect and direct control over Kirkuk and its oil fields, the taking of Tikrit will be the first step towards furthering Iranian hegemony goals in the region. Turkey is being pushed closer…”
