soft policy

Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu delivered a speech at the CFR in the USA.

CFR means Council on Foreign Relations. A 100 year old think tank.

One of the most influential think tanks in the USA.

Probably the first.

If there is such a thing as the “American establishment”, it is its incarnation.

If there is a diabolical entity called “external forces” in Turkey, which supporters of power constantly claim, it is its central office.

Members of our government love to make a speech here every time in the USA, they want to show up here.

This time, Mr. Mevlüt went to CFR and talked about how deep and deep-rooted our cooperation with the USA is, how important things we can achieve if we strengthen this cooperation.

So this is our new direction in foreign policy.

Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu has a place in my eyes as “His master’s voice” rather than a Foreign Minister.

If President Erdoğan speaks with a high pitch, Mevlüt Bey shouts at a higher pitch, if President Erdogan softens the tone, Mevlüt Bey wraps his words in cotton.

Obviously, we have entered the “soft” period.

However, there is no “soft” situation at all.

There has been no progress in the issue of new generation F16s for almost a year, and the Democratic senators attribute this F16 sale to “not violating Greek airspace”.

With regard to the NATO membership of Sweden and Finland, which we have made a commitment to lift our veto for the sake of meeting with Biden, let alone extraditing the terrorists, we no longer have a veto word on our lips, even though these two countries made extradition impossible with their judicial decisions.

The USA gives the F35s, which they did not give us, under the pretext of S400s, to Greece, which activated the S300s.

Greek military ships and the US navy are on joint patrols in the Aegean.

Airborne arm of the Greek Air Force, the US Air Force.

One of the largest naval bases of the USA in the Mediterranean is being established 10 kilometers from Turkey.

As if all of this was not enough, the US’s international “mixer”, Speaker of the House of Representatives named Nancy Pelosi, came to Armenia after confusing the Far East, just at a time when the Azerbaijan-Armenia tensions were escalating again.

And in return, we find time to initiate a “soft policy”.

After Çavuşoğlu’s speech at the CFR, I hope Pelosi does not pay a visit to Southern Cyprus, then to Athens, and then meet with his soldiers at the base in Alexandrapolis.

Well, there is no need to argue any more.

The presidential candidate to be brought to the table by the CHP has been determined.

Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu announced his candidacy.

There’s nothing wrong with me.

Although he has changed a little lately, he is a gentle, decent, good person.

It suits me.

I don’t know if it would suit me but Turkey, 50 plus 1 percent of the electorate.

The issue is already there.

At the next stage, the CHP will present the name of Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu as its candidate to the table where 6 leaders sit.

Will it be accepted?

I know that everyone at that table had love, respect and affection for Mr. Kemal.

But this does not mean that they will accept Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu’s candidacy unconditionally.

They will probably be persuaded by offering government memberships to these parties at the table.

It’s not easy there either.

In the Economy, the Good Party established a good staff.

How will they share it with DEVA?

Even though there is an agreement with the future on the code of political ethics, how will they come to an agreement on the Foreign Affairs?

Temel Karamollaoğlu will undoubtedly support Kemal Bey in Saadet, but how will they spread this to the grassroots?

The parties’ own balances, the leaders’ own political futures will be in question, and there will most likely be two parties at the end of the 6-party table while going to this election, which is considered the most critical election in Turkey.

Good Party and CHP.

However, there are “digestion” problems even within the CHP, which is evident from Kılıçdaroğlu’s constant calls to his own party, “Are you with me?”

There will probably be similar problems within the Iyi Parti.

In this case, it is clear that the key party will be the HDP.

Here, it is important what kind of expectation HDP will have.

It is certain that HDP voters will not go to the People’s Alliance.

But if the HDP Nation Alliance says “Let’s show our cooperation with a handshake”, the election campaign of the People’s Alliance will become clear and the image of this handshake will be the election poster of the People’s Alliance.

This is exactly the point the presidential system has brought Turkey to.

When the advocacy doesn’t become so despicable as to target a sick child.
