If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again? The US wanted Turkey demoralized and subservient so they could get their Kurdistan aka Israel 2.0 on without any messy inconveniences- Like Operation Euphrates Shield. But the coup failed. And Operation Euphrates shield impeded the move on Raqqa.
As of last week the US and their Kurd terror proxies made the move.
- US Launched "Surprise" Attack On Raqqa. Blocking SAA/Hezbollah/Russian Forces
- US Attack on Raqqa Updated..
- Raqqa & Mosul To Fall in Unison- Tillerson Accelerating IS Fight
- Taking Raqqa: Dam, Airport Captured- US Deal with Kurds On Syrian Territory
“Meanwhile, US sources said on Friday that the US Secretary of State’s visit to Ankara would be decisive with regards to the US-led campaign to regain the city of Raqqa”Visit to Ankara would be decisive with regards to the US led campaign to annex Raqqa. Crucial, critical and conclusive, just as I expect. Tillerson is going to give Turkey their options. None of them will be to Turkey’s liking. From there Tillerson heads to NATO HQ in Brussels.
The Turkish referendum is April 16. The West is Unhinged over the Turkish Referendum. The perception management has been applied profusely- The usual anti war, anti imperial crowd, including in the alternative media is clamouring for Turkish blood to be spilled- It’s quite sickening to observe.

Turkey is the hardest part of the operation. The USA can't openly attack NATO's member. Something big must happen
Indeed. War must be sold with a lie. Always. That said the US doesn’t have time for a colour revolution. It’s doubtful another coup will fly.
So here is where we get to Greece, possibly involving Cyprus, acting as provocateur, creating some type of pretext to justify an action against Turkey. Keeping in mind that Turkey has no reason to provoke Greece. Turkey wants ideal conditions for their referendum, so it’s absurd to think they would “provoke” Greece. However, Greece has incentive aplenty to provoke Turkey. Doing NATO’s bidding is a plus for Greece. Greece is NATO’s big spending lackey. Greece has already acted very provocatively towards Turkey. Undoubtedly with a whole lot of support from Brussels. Unlike Turkey, Greece is beholden large to the banksters & the EU.
1-Greece was involved with the coup attempt.
2- Greece would not turn over the coup participants. And as if their involvement in the attempted overthrow wasn’t bad enough.. Greece Refuses Turkey's Extradition Request of Coup Plotters
3- Greece has been extremely provocative regarding Cyprus..
Greek Minister Responsible for Derailing Cyprus Talks: Obvious Provocation!
Considering all the provocations already undertaken by NATO’s gofer, Greece, it’s safe to suggest, that Greece could and would provoke Turkey, yet again! In some way that would portray NATO’s betrayal of Turkey as necessary for the greater good. You know, the USA as the global social justice warrior.
And isn't the US the ultimate social justice warrior?!
Thinking about all that is going on present day, while pondering possibilities, it seems very sensible to consider the possibility that Greece will provoke Turkey- An article from the Guardian certainly confirmed my suspicions: Tensions flare as Greece tells Turkey it is ready to answer any provocation
“The Greek armed forces are ready to answer any provocation,” Panos Kammenos declared at a military parade marking the 196th anniversary of Greece’s war of liberation against Ottoman Turkish rule. “We are ready because that is how we defend peace.”Defend Peace? Sure.
“I fear the period from now until the referendum in Turkey, as well as the effort to create a climate of fanaticism within Turkish society,” he told CNN Greece.A climate of fanaticism? How about a climate of national pride? My oh my the negative spin.
Turkey’s EU negotiations have long been hindered by Cyprus, and talks aimed at reuniting its estranged Greek and Turkish communities are at a critical juncture but have stalled and are unlikely to move until after the referendum.
“The concern on the Greek side is not so much of an intentional incident but of an accident that then spirals out of control,” Dr Thanos Dokos, director of the Eliamep thinktank, told the Guardian. “The whole nationalist mood in Turkey would make such a situation difficult to defuse.”An accident (false flag) that spirals out of control, is what concerns Greece. To which I respond- Just make sure there are no "accidents".
“Greece has expressed its concerns to the US,” said Dokos. “But when we don’t have a fully functional national security apparatus in Washington which is usually the firefighter in such situations, when Nato’s influence is limited and the EU’s even less, the big question really is who could or would manage such a crisis if it were to happen.”Hmmmmmm..... That sounds like some convenient excuse making
