Turkey Could Start a Global Meltdown This Month
Turkey Could Start a Global Meltdown This Month by Nick Giambruno – International Man
Dozens of renegade commandos in three Black Hawk helicopters swooped in on the president’s holiday residence.
Their mission was to capture him—or more likely, to kill him.
The commandoes engaged in a fierce gun battle with the president’s bodyguards, killing a number of them.
The president, however, was nowhere to be found. He’d been tipped off and made it safely to his private jet, cheating death by mere minutes.
When the renegade soldiers learned of his escape, they commandeered a couple of F-16 fighter jets and sent them to shoot down the presidential jet.
To escape the rebel F-16s, the president’s pilots hid their aircraft’s identity by altering its transponder signal, making it “look” like a civilian passenger jet.
The confused rebel F-16s ran out of fuel and had to land before they figured out what had happened.
This story sounds like something out of a Tom Clancy novel. But it actually happened last summer in Turkey. The failed military coup d’état killed over 290 people.
Today, Turkey is at the epicenter of many crises destabilizing the world…
- The migrant crisis in Europe
- The ongoing carnage in Iraq and Syria
- The battle with ISIS
- The Kurdish conflict
- The new Cold War with Russia
Turkey is one giant powder keg, and the fuse is already lit.
When the next global crisis explodes, Turkey—which straddles Europe and Asia—will likely be involved. It has more tripwires for a global meltdown than any other place in the world.
In the coming weeks, Turkey may also play a big role in the collapse of the world’s largest economy.
You see, the EU has harshly criticized Turkey’s response to the failed coup. This has not endeared them to the Turkish government.
