The useless United Nations has been “monitoring” this situation in Turkey for the past three years.

Ceasefire guarantor states Russia, Iran and Turkey have adopted a memorandum on the creation of four security zones in Syria, during peace talks in the Kazakh capital of Astana.
The de-escalation zones were earlier proposed by Russia. They are aimed at separating extremist groups, including Islamic State terrorists (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Jabhat al-Nusra (Al-Nusra Front), from the moderate opposition.
Fears in Europe are growing that Turkey’s increasingly authoritarian Islamist president could renew demands for easy access to Europe for 75 million Turks, while threatening to scrap a deal which eased the migrant crisis last year.

Turks are voting in a nationwide referendum on Sunday which will decide whether the president’s powers are expanded. The weeks leading to the vote saw tensions not only within Turkey but also with some EU states which banned Ankara’s rallies.
In January, Turkish MPs approved a constitutional reform package seeking to place significant executive powers in President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s hands, changing the current parliamentary system as a consequence.
Maybe it is time to leave Turkey for good.
There are many seers, who foresaw, that Russia will wipe Turkey off the map.
Maybe just shoot some more Russian fighter jets down, or steal just a little more Syrian land to get the (PTB) desired result?
And it really does look like Turkey will blow up under Erdogan.

The dwindling credit of Turkey and significant decline in its currency, has led to the new clever idea of confiscating gold with a smile.
The Turkish Central Bank has come up with an idea of how to confiscate private gold while pretending they are helping you earn more money. Their objective is to make the private gold stocks of the citizens available to the financial system for themselves, but how to sell that to the people?
Turkish politician and former parliamentary deputy Ümit Özdag claims Europe could see three million migrants arrive on the continent as the EU-Turkey migrant agreement breaks down.
Özdag made the claim this week, according to Austrian politician and migration expert Efgani Dönmez. Dönmez told Austrian media that Turkey was looking to send three million migrants, mostly Afghan nationals, to Europe. He said that the migrants are already amassing on the borders of Turkey and they could arrive in Greece and other European Union countries as early as in the next few days, OE24 reports.
