German Report: How Turkey Arms and Sends Wahhabi Jihadists into Syria
A new wave of discoveries in 1939 brought a fresh breath to atom. Scientists first suggested that a neutron, captured by the nucleus, would cause severe vibration leading to the nucleus splitting into two not quite equal parts. They calculated the energy release from this fission as about 200 million electron volts. Later they showed that fission not only released a lot of energy but that it also released additional neutrons which could cause fission in other uranium nuclei and possibly a self-sustaining chain reaction leading to an enormous release of energy. An optimist would think ‘What a good result; and this is the time when nuclear power plants were built and nuclear energy used’. No, World War II brought its priorities. Nuclear bomb was invented, and played important role in power balance.

“Turkey’s policy is seen as too aggressive, too hawkish,” Sinan Ulgen, a Turkish foreign policy expert at the Carnegie Endowment, told me. The refusal to support military action—what Ulgen termed “a fundamental allergy to international intervention”—is a legacy of Turkey’s own turbulent past and its failed foreign policies. Turks are still recovering from a military coup that, decades ago, pitched the country into violence. And they remain in the midst of civil war with the P.K.K. that has stretched on for three decades now, and which in the past year has intensified considerably. Turks know the toll of conflict. They link their economic prosperity to their political stability. Until recently they got along with their neighbors as a matter of policy.

On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered “global intelligence” company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal’s Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor’s web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.
