Libya, Egypt, Russia, vs Turkey

Could this conflict cause a bloody war?


brad johnson i haven’t checked I still
00:01
think it’s July 13th some I guess good
00:05
news in terms of that slow-motion World
00:08
War three that’s taking place now it
00:10
looks like Russia is taking the opposite
00:13
side against Turkey on two fronts what’s
00:16
going on in that in Libya yeah it’s an
00:20
interesting little thing now the
00:21
reporting on this comes out about
00:23
Jazeera which I don’t necessarily
00:24
recommend everyone to waste their time
00:26
digging through but al Jazeera reported
00:29
this that in Malta a ship bound for
00:32
Libya that is Russian supporting the
00:37
half guard for general haft our troops
00:39
that are and the like working against
00:43
the Libyan government which is in trench
00:45
so you have general haft are backed by
00:48
Russia United Arab Emirates and Egypt on
00:52
the one hand fighting against the
00:54
entrenched radical Islamic government
00:56
and tripoli backed by Turkey so Russia
01:01
was caught with these two huge packs of
01:04
counterfeit money Libyan money that they
01:07
had been producing and they were
01:08
shipping this to half tarp to fund his
01:11
efforts that are so a couple of
01:14
observations just on that on the face
01:16
this is a tried and true technique by
01:18
Russian intelligence something that
01:20
they’ve done forever
01:21
and they’ve counterfeited American money
01:23
many many times as have done a lot of
01:25
countries like China and other enemies
01:28
of the United States of America and so
01:30
this is standard operating procedures
01:31
there’s nothing new to them doing this
01:34
so I would look at on the face of this
01:36
reporting I would say you know I would
01:38
99 percent this is exactly the truth
01:40
that they had been producing this money
01:42
to support up an ally essentially in
01:45
Libya
01:46
now there are a couple other aspects of
01:49
this that I think are worth touching on
01:53
on this now one of the things as I
01:56
mentioned you’ve got kind of Turkey on
01:58
the on the one side and UAE Egypt and
02:02
Russia on the other side facing off each
02:05
other inside Libya with these surrogate
02:08
troops that are fighting haft ours done
02:11
general half-dressed and very well
02:13
has almost taken all of Libya a couple
02:15
of times and the Turks have stepped in
02:17
to stop him
02:19
turkey of course what they’re looking to
02:20
do is recreate and establish Turkish
02:24
authoritarian rule and another another
02:28
Ottoman Empire and this is one of the
02:30
steps one of the areas they want to
02:32
rican troll if you are can back to the
02:34
ottoman times and so they’re pushing to
02:37
do that create an entire circuit and
02:39
government that’s under the control of
02:41
Turkey so one of the things that they’ve
02:43
now done and this was a threat it also
02:45
just came out Turkey made a statement
02:48
and they said that if general Haftarah
02:51
continues this targeting and that
02:54
they’re hitting assets that are now
02:56
controlled or put there by Turkey even
02:58
though they’re being manned by the
03:00
opposition Libyan forces that they won’t
03:04
view that as an attack on them
03:05
essentially and that they will then
03:07
consider half our forces a legitimate
03:09
military target so to decipher that what
03:12
they’re saying is you keep attacking the
03:15
Libyan forces that’s our equipment we
03:17
will then directly attack you so this is
03:20
a threat by Turkey to escalate the war
03:22
to directly intervene in the Libyan
03:26
Civil War on the side of the of the
03:29
tripoli government and that by the way
03:33
now has also been offset Egypt has been
03:35
supposedly there’s been reporting that
03:38
they’re bringing in tanks and armored
03:41
vehicles and things like that how many
03:43
troops they might be moving in or out I
03:45
don’t know but this is a very
03:47
interesting turn of events because now
03:49
you’ve got Russia very actively involved
03:52
you do a ii actively involved and you’ve
03:53
got egypt possibly involved with troops
03:56
and equipment so could pretty quickly if
04:00
turkey and turkey doesn’t particularly
04:03
back down on this sort of thing so i
04:05
would expect
04:06
turkish forces to be attacking halftime
04:09
general haft our forces inside libya
04:12
fairly soon if that takes place will
04:15
egypt then step up and provide troops
04:18
and equipment to then offset the turks
04:20
half guard cannot stand up to the
04:23
turkish military a direct onslaught so
04:26
he would be
04:26
feeded under those circumstances but
04:29
kenny jipped stand up to them especially
04:31
when they’ve got the backing of Russia
04:32
and UAE and that would be a battle that
04:36
would have to be determined but I would
04:38
say the odds would then swing back to
04:39
the general Haftarah and allies group
04:42
and you’ve got now just one of the
04:46
little things and the aspects of it you
04:49
implied this earlier on was you’ve got
04:53
Greece in this max now just picture in
04:57
your mind on a map
04:58
you’ve got Turkey to the north and Egypt
05:02
to the south with the Mediterranean Sea
05:04
between them and they’re directly north
05:05
and south of each other and next door to
05:08
the west
05:09
you’ve got Greece and Libya so you know
05:13
what putting it a different way you know
05:15
you’ve got Egypt and and Libya to the
05:19
west next door to them and Greece and
05:22
Turkey the same way with Greece to the
05:25
west
05:25
now what Turkey has done is they’ve
05:29
created this treaty with this puppet
05:31
government in Libya and Tripoli that
05:33
says basically the sea between the two
05:37
countries of Turkey and Libya are a free
05:41
economic zone for Turkish exploitation
05:44
and all of that well you know consider
05:46
you’re going to diagonally across those
05:48
countries I just mentioned what does
05:49
that mean that means Greece is in that
05:52
zone so that is this justification that
05:55
Turkey is using to go exploit the oil
05:58
and drill and all those things now
06:00
Greece economically is a mess so they’re
06:02
not going to really be able to stand up
06:03
to Turkey but they do have a certain
06:05
amount of rushing back so this is one of
06:08
those power plays that we see turkey
06:11
making – as I say reestablish the
06:14
Ottoman Empire really span there the
06:16
areas under their control and these are
06:18
sort of the forces that are playing out
06:20
now everybody happened out in that part
06:22
of the world knows all this you know
06:24
this is openly discussed I wouldn’t say
06:26
this is something that some grand secret
06:29
strategy this is fairly open source type
06:32
of news items that are being discussed
06:33
in Europe here and in the United States
06:38
and Canada and
06:39
and Europe to some degree what the
06:41
western part of Europe it’s one of those
06:43
things that everybody sort of in denial
06:44
because internationally Europe in the
06:48
United States and Canada recognize the
06:50
radical Islamic regime in Tripoli as the
06:55
legitimate government even though the
06:57
u.s. educated general haft are in the
07:00
courses operating against them is
07:03
essentially a would be a friend to the
07:05
west of the United States so it’s one of
07:07
those bass-ackwards all mixed up sorts
07:09
of things that has real flash potential
07:12
to create some problems and we’ve now
07:15
seen that next knotch moved up where
07:18
turkey says we’re going to go directly
07:20
into this fray if they do that will not
07:23
remain on answer in my opinion by Egypt
07:26
and the other allies I mentioned they
07:28
will also then come into the fray and if
07:30
you have Egypt which is also a big army
07:34
it’s the biggest army of all of the Arab
07:36
countries directly against Turkey who
07:40
they feared they as I said Egypt
07:43
understands what Turkey is doing and
07:45
they’ll like it they want it stopped and
07:47
so that’s why they’re facing off in
07:49
Libya that’s where where all this
07:51
happens so I and you’ve got Russia
07:53
backing Greece to try and stop the Turks
07:56
there and you’ve got them all then as I
07:58
said as a conglomerate backing the the
08:03
Libyan forces against the Tripoli back
08:05
Turkish back Tripoli government so it’s
08:08
it’s really turning into a potential for
08:12
an escalated war where you start to have
08:16
other countries come into it now with
08:18
that naturally go to a world war I don’t
08:21
think so I mean you would not
08:22
necessarily have the rest of Europe in
08:25
the United States involved in that but
08:28
I’ll tell you one thing if if Egypt and
08:30
Turkey go to it and a head you got a
08:33
frakking mess on their hands and that’s
08:34
the truth it’s it’s going to be bloody
08:36
and bad so I I and it has the potential
08:39
to be very dangerous on a larger scale
08:41
so it’s it’s something that we all need
08:45
to create a more realistic policy and
08:47
and start looking for more realistic
08:50
solutions and know
08:52
kowtow to Turkey on these issues would
08:54
you say that Russia had a strategic
08:57
policy of not allowing a regional
09:01
hegemony in their near far because that
09:04
would kind of explain a lot of these
09:05
actions oh yeah absolutely I mean I you
09:09
know any student of history you don’t
09:11
have to look back very far to see war
09:13
after war through the you know decades
09:15
between Russia and Turkey they’ve long
09:17
gone at it as competitors in that area
09:20
for influencing powers so this is just
09:23
something right out of the history books
09:26
where they’re they’re confronting each
09:27
other over these over power and
09:30
influence and Russia absolutely does not
09:32
want to see a reestablishment of the
09:35
Ottoman Empire so they’re they’re very
09:37
much against it and I would this is
09:39
something we talked about in a previous
09:40
interview but I would have everybody
09:43
recall when the Turkish delegation went
09:45
to visit Russia they were plopped down
09:48
in front of the lot of the Russia
09:50
previous political leaders and military
09:53
leaders who had defeated the Ottomans
09:55
and so that was something that Putin was
09:57
referred to specifically and it was in
09:59
some ways a thinly veiled threat that
10:01
we’ve done before we can do it again
10:03
so they like I state really wide
10:06
everybody in that area of the world
10:07
everything I say is no surprise to
10:10
anyone out there we’re here in the West
10:11
it’s it’s completely ignored decisions
10:14
being reported on imagine that Egypt and
10:16
Turkey possibly facing off to have our
10:18
actual ground war with their troops and
10:21
that’s not getting reported in the West
10:23
that’s part of this deep
10:24
irresponsibility in them and the
10:26
mainstream media that we’ve seen out
10:27
here in the West for not reporting the
10:29
important issues that are out there
10:31
yeah the West has lost all concept of
10:34
journalism thank you very much bread
10:48
you
