Rehearsing for Conflict With Armenia, Greece and India: Turkey Inaugurates NATO-Backed Bloc From Balkans to Chinese Border | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Rehearsing for Conflict With Armenia, Greece and India: Turkey Inaugurates NATO-Backed Bloc From Balkans to Chinese Border

Turkey has recently hosted and led several military exercises with the word Anatolian (Anadolu) as part of their code names, but two in particular, occurring simultaneously, warrant close examination.

They are Anatolian 21 and Anatolian Eagle 2021: the first a special operations exercise and the second an air combat one.

Anatolian 21 is led by Turkish special forces, and what is most significant about it is the list of participants. Nations fully participating are Albania, Azerbaijan, Qatar, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Turkey and Uzbekistan and as observers Kosovo and Mongolia.

If one desired to see a concise exemplification of the Turkish government’s geopolitical ambitions, especially as a reflection of Ankara’s three-pronged strategy of neo-Ottomanism, pan-Turkism and pan-Islamism, the above roster couldn’t be more illustrative.
