Turkey – AKP and Prime Minister Erdogan Resignation Key to Political Stability

June 2, 2013

Turkey is overwhelmed with political uprising against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in the past few days attracting international attention.

Turkish citizens initial peaceful protest to government demolition plan on Gezi Park used for assembly and rallies other than being a tourist attraction in Istanbul has turned violent due to police crackdown with tear gas, water cannons and extreme tactics against unarmed participants in the traditional Taksim Square synonymous to Egypt’s Tahrir Square.

The trail began with AKP leaderships Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Ahmet Davoutoglu prominently waging proxy war hiring terrorists in Syria causing 80,000 or more in death toll and several million refugees scattered within and across their homeland.

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan and AKP unilateral decision allowing U.S. and NATO troops on Turkish soil using Patriot Missile installation as pretext similar to U.S. armed forces deployment in Jordan as responsive measure to Syrian refugee situation essentially serve United States illegal invasion and occupation of foreign land.

Such action in defiance of respective public and political opposition qualifies as treason.

Prime Minister Erdogan and Foreign Minister Davoutoglu direct involvement in United States and other western leaders sponsored terrorism against Syria backfired through two bomb blasts on May 11, 2013 in Reyhanli – the border town near Syria in Turkish southern province of Hatay reportedly killing 52 residents and many injured in the violence.

Sadly innocent citizens fell victim to government imported crime by sheltering terrorists in the country.

Subsequently on May 31, 2013 Turkish security forces reported to have seized two kilograms of nerve agent sarin gas and heavy artillery from al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra front terrorists home in Turkey’s southern city Adana about 150 kilometers or 93 miles from Syria.

The culmination of these events along with latest controversial government project to replace national park has obviously led to citizens demand for Prime Minister Erdogan and government resignation.

People frustration and disappointment against incumbent leadership and AKP party is legitimate considering rapid deterioration of secular, socially progressive and economically vibrant Turkey diminished as chief facilitator of terror for United States and western powers targeting neighbor Syria in the nearly three year old terrorism with blowback on Turkey.

AKP leadership’s erroneous decisions viz. terror activities in Syria and invitation for foreign incursion in Turkey disregarding constitution as well as lack of political consensus on these critical issues concerning national security reflected in mainstream call for government to step down.

Turkey also confronted with rise of Muslim Brotherhood political wing enabled by Prime Minister Erdogan joining western powers coalition of the willing aimed at fundamentalist system prolonging oppression of population across Middle East.

For instance, Qatar and Saudi influence otherwise Takfiri infiltration in Islamic countries is to stifle true democratic functions and deprive republic status.

The clash between people and ruling power evident in the authorities disconnect with main street problems due to preoccupation in decimation of Syria and bombings in Iraq.

Again excessive force witnessed recently and Prime Minister Erdogan statement referring to protestors as extremists while providing full support to al-Qaeda and associate al-Nusra front terrorists in Syrian conflict clarifies paradoxical disposition endangering lives experienced in bomb blasts in Turkey.

Republic is the real power and honoring their will is the elected officials duty and responsibility.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and AKP having lost credibility and public trust leaving office immediately would be honorable and politically viable saving the nation from unnecessary turmoil and bloodshed.

Upon political transformation, Turkey withdrawal from NATO is paramount in reclaiming sovereignty.

Accordingly removal of foreign presence in the form of military, espionage services, USAID, NGO’s in disguise and media false propaganda undermining national independence would be comprehensive in liberation cause.

Wishing citizens in Turkey republic governance and people choice leadership making progress in leaps and bounds in all frontiers.

Peace to Turkey

Peace to all

Thank you.
