Erdogan unleashing war dogs that may return and bite Turkey

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyeb Erdogan is ‘unleashing dogs’ by his aggressive stance against Syria but these ‘dogs’ may return and bite Turkey from behind, an analyst says.

“When you unleash the dogs of war you never know if you or your enemy is going to be bitten. And I think what Mr. Erdogan is doing is unleashing dogs that may come back to bite him in the behind,” Ken Stone from Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War told Press TV in an exclusive interview on Monday.

Stone added that Erdogan is participating in a war crime against the national sovereignty of Syria and the Charter of the United Nations.

“He is participating in a war crime. A crime against the national sovereignty of Syria; a crime against the United Nations Charter… and he should stop at once supporting the insurgency in Syria, if not for his own country then he should do it on behalf of international law and justice,” he said

The Turkish premier is providing arms, equipments and bases to insurgents and encouraging and arming refugees, who have fled the fighting in Syria to go back into Syria and fight against the government of President Bashar al-Assad, he said.

Erdogan is already enmeshed with Kurdish insurgency of his own and his interference in the affairs of a sovereign country like Syria does undermine the stability of his country, stone added.

The Turkish premier declared on Sunday that Ankara will stand firm by foreign-backed insurgents fighting the Syrian government and will keep providing them logistical support.

Western countries, including the United States, Britain, France and Canada are undermining the UN peace plan to resolve the crisis in Syria through inserting armed mercenaries into Syria," he opined.

“What they (Western countries) need to do is stop the insurgency and start working towards the implementation of the plan through peaceful dialogue, diplomacy and negotiation,” Stone went on to say.

Stone touched upon the West’s “hypocrisy and double standards”, saying “In the West they talk about humanitarian intervention, but they are selective about where they want to intervene and they want to intervene in Syria.”

“These countries need to start abiding by international law and they need to help implement the United Nations six point peace plan,” he concluded.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the armed militants are foreign nationals, mostly from Egypt, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan.
