This week PM Erdogan mentioned that PKK is subcontractor of some countries which may have some interests and secret agendas about Turkey's political character and constitutinal union.I frankly agree with this claim made by Erdogan,because it is not so far from now that we read the news that many American origined martial equipments have been found,by Turkish troops in PKK camps in southeast of Turkey.As known,USA and Turkey decided to co-oporate agains terrorist organizations that may threat the territorial unity of both countries.Why the allience of USA is important about the challenge against PKK? The answer is simply clear,USA is the only hegemonic power on Iraqi zone,and the natural borders that bind Turkey to Iraq is the path of PKK guerillas which can not be taken under control without USA's back up.On the one hand USA seem to be serious about cooperation with Turkey to set some measures about the intelligence about operations against the terrorists,On the other hand; ironically we lately evidenced few terrorist attacks made by PKK which could be resisted by using the cooperation on intelligence.Besides,one of the terrorist attacks organized by Kurdish terrorist group in İskenderun,how incidently,happened just after the flotilla attack made by Israel(!),we already have witnessed that Israel years along insisted not to accept that PKK as a terrorist organization.And the other issue that may be remarkable to mention;The secret support of European States to PKK.Obviously criminal and well known leaders of PKK, live in countries such as France,Belgium,Germany,Austria in peace and,these Countries insist not to give these criminals by some so called democratic reasons,now at this point i wonder if anything like this could be accepted by these countries,as if Turkey kept a criminal terrorist leaders who lead, terrorist or illegal organizations threating their countries? The answer is clearly "no,they would not".So that,i totally agree with PM Erdogan about the speech,he made this week after terrorist attacks.When Turkey shakes herself and start to grow up,this terrorist organization gets more actively to attack and changing the domestic agenda,thus Turkey can not be fully focused on economic stability,searching for investment advantages and the new peaceful strategies for turkey's region that may be followed.Question is;How Turkey will deal with this unfair game? Will Turkey chicken out against the hypocrisy of THEM(!) or will Turkey speak out and say with a stronger voice,ENOUGH! ??

About the speculations of Shiftin' axis on Turkish Foreign Policy;
Lovely EU lately started to say "MY DEAR TURKEY !!!"......,as heard as EU is planning to set a new attitude about Turkey's accession to EU.This new attitude is consisted of non-visa regulation to Turkey's citizens and few other issues that must have been solved earlier,rather than later.The flotilla event done by Israel and the reaction of Turkey also the decision of UN security Council and the co-attitude of Turkey with Brasil,seem to be effective on Europeans' minds.The shift of axis that being discussed by media,makes Turkey have better cards on the negotiation table.Yes turkey is shifting something but it's not the axis that Turkey's modernization has been based on,but Turkey's strategical vision.It has a depth anymore as Davutoglu often mentions. Turkey is playing big anymore,lately and looks like she decided not be blind to her neighborhood,in other words her backyard and her pottential role that she is able to play as a regional soft power.And as a Turk im pleased to say this; I think in further years,EU will be at the gate of Turkey and knockin' the door,not Turkey ;)

"Israel should not get away with this !"
"It obviously is the beggining of Turkey-Israel cold war and this time Obama's requests for mercy may not be so considered by Turkey,Turkey has kept remarkable participences on Serbian-Bosnian post war conflict,Pakistan issue linked with it's Government and oppositions also the latest shape of Nuclear program of Iran and Uranium exchange protocole co-done with Brasil.Israel is not the effective and peaceful ally of US.Israel is quite away from any kind of peaceful act or politics,but Turkey in this picture.We Turks have got to be calm, This new form of crysis will shape the Middle Eastern agenda of US, entirely or maybe already did, who knows?"

However these all westerners and israel has already got nuclear weapons,they keep pushing Iran not to have any kind of nucleic program,even if it's peaceful.That is ironic and absurt.Nobody could explain the reasonability of this hypocrisy..especially after a decent example;Iraq...Ohh truly where are the nuclear weapons of Saddam? Did US find it yet? I frankly take Turkey's and Brasil's decent efforts about the issue,appriciated.Turkey and Brasil are going to back up the key solution of the problem.

The Human Rights implementing methods of West;
""will you accept that you made a genocide God damn Turk hmm? if not im going to go on this torture!!""
(this could be considered as the essential meaning of the caricature on the left)
Some EU states seem to illiterately have no ideas about the historical background of this issue,maybe they know but they are afraid of setting a commitee of Historians and let them search the documentations,archives everything..Why do not they do that,where are the rules of rationality and being scientific? i wonder how long they are going to use this arguments and amuse Turkey.I know only one thing,this way will not prove anything,and they will make Turkey lose her will to be a member of European Union. And Turkish society has already started to judge the values of democracy have been taught by West since last century,and Turks keep getting more disappointed with its role models about democracy and freedom of speech such as; France,Belgium,Switzerland,Netherland,Denmark,Norway.Because,to claim that there was no genocide made by Ottomans and it was yet uncorroborated by historians,is a crime in Belgium and
France,to insult and curse to muslims prophet Mohammed is not forbidden in Denmark and Norway,To build a Minaret near mosque is forbidden in switzerland,to insult Turks and call them as freaks (Geert Wilders march,2010) is not forbidden in Netherland.So where are the relaibility of the founder acts of European Union? what about freedom of religion? How about the rules of rationality and justice? How about the rights of ethnic minorities? Is EU still the pattern of Democracy and Human Rights??????

Turkey warns US over Armenian "genocide" vote
Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said Turkey, a key Muslim ally of the US, would assess what measures it would take, adding that the issue was a matter of "honor" for his country.
A US congressional committee approved the measure Thursday. The 23-22 vote sends the measure to the full House of Representatives, where prospects for passage are uncertain. Minutes after the vote, Turkey withdrew its ambassador to the US.
Armenians around the world have been lobbying for a long time that up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Ottoman Turks around the time of World War I, but Turkey denies that the deaths constituted genocide, saying the toll has been inflated and that those killed were victims of a civil war and unrest.
President Barack Obama had objected to the resolution, but Turkey wants stronger action to block the resolution.
"We expect the US administration to, as of now, display more effective efforts. Otherwise the picture ahead will not be a positive one," Davutoğlu told reporters. He complained of a lack of "strategic vision" in Washington.
Davutoğlu said the Obama administration had not put sufficient weight behind efforts to block the vote and called on Washington to do more to prevent the measure from now going to the full house.
The measure was approved at a time when Washington is expected to press Turkey to back sanctions against Iran to be approved in the UN Security Council, where Turkey currently holds a seat. Turkish cooperation also is important to US operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Also at stake are defense contracts. Turkey is an important market for US defense companies, many of which had lobbied against the measure.
Davutoğlu said the US ambassador had been called to the Foreign Ministry for talks. The ambassador, James Jeffrey, told reporters on Friday that "we oppose the resolution."
The foreign minister said Turkey was determined to press ahead with efforts to normalize ties with Armenia but said Turkey would not be "pressured" into doing so.
He added that the vote had put the ratification of agreements to normalize ties with Armenia into jeopardy.
Last year, Turkey and Armenia agreed to normalize ties by establishing diplomatic relations and reopen their shared border, but the agreements have yet to be approved by their parliaments.
