Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, Assasination in Ankara 19.12.16 - NATO Preparing for War With Russia - Killer is Intimately Linked to U.S.-Based Fetullah Gulen

RUSSIA, TURKEY AND IRAN CEMENT TIES AFTER ANKARA SLAYING

Murder of Russian ambassador will backfire

December 19, 2016 VLADIMIR MIKHEEV, SPECIAL TO RBTH

The consequences of the brutal killing of Andrey Karlov, Russian Ambassador to Ankara, on Dec. 19, are likely to develop along three tracks and in three dimensions, at least.


The terrorist act reveals the desperation of Islamist's groupings that are running out of sponsor's money, ammunition, and even jihadi zeal, and are coming to realize that the tide of developments in the most turbulent region has turned decisively against them.

No damage to Ankara-Moscow hot line

First and foremost, Moscow showed resolution to bring those who masterminded the murder to justice. Later on the sad day, President Putin summoned for consultations not only his Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov but also heads of security and intelligence services.

Apart from rallying diplomatic support (Moscow announced it would seek support in the United Nations), there could be a new level of coordination on this case between security agencies of Russia and Turkey, which in itself amounts to a breakthrough.

It has been widely reposted in the media that Fatih Öke, the press attaché of Turkey's embassy in Washington DC, has placed a comment on Twitter: "The bullet to Ambassador Karlov is not only aims him. It aims also Turkish-Russian relation."

This is yet another proof that there is profound understanding on various levels of interaction between the two countries that many 'third parties' are interests in alienating Ankara and Moscow. Not this time. The incident will not damage bi-lateral relations.

Bullets consolidate Erdogan's grip on power

Secondly, the terrorist act will have repercussions for domestic policies in Turkey. The assertion by HaberTurk news channel that 22-year old Mevlüt Mert Altintas was allegedly involved in Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) awaits confirmation.

If found true, and the killer is intimately linked to U.S.-based Fetullah Gulen, [Gunman is allegedly a security officer of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.]  former ally turned rival and opponent to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, then it will strengthen the 'witch hunt' launched after the aborted coup d'état last summer.

Moreover, it would make the allegedly 'liberal' preacher Gulen an accomplice of a first grade homicide. Would then Moscow join Ankara in its consistent demands for the extradition of the former imam from the United States?

And consequently, given the change of guard due on Jan. 20, could White House sacrifice Gulen for the sake of bettering relations with both Turkey and Russia? It is a provocative question, isn't it?

Triangular diplomacy to be energized

Thirdly, the timing of the plot is crucial to investigation. It does not look like a coincidence. The shots were fired just days before Turkish foreign minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, was scheduled to conduct talks in Moscow with his Russian and Iranian counterparts, Sergey Lavrov and Mohammad Javad Zarif.

The agenda of these negotiations was clearly designed to be dominated by the new realities on the ground in the aftermath of the recapture of Aleppo by Bashar al-Assad forces.

Moscow seemed to pin hopes on these deliberations despite a Turkish foreign ministry official downplaying anticipations, saying, "It is not a miracle meeting, but will give all sides a chance to listen to each other."

On the contrary, Sergei Lavrov sounded more upbeat: "Hope to speak in detail and concrete terms with those who can really bring about an improvement in the situation on the ground, while our Western partners are busier with rhetoric and propaganda and aren't influencing those who listen to them."

Moscow's resolve to bring regional actors to facilitate the settlement of the civil war in Syria and annihilate the threat of ISIS once and forever remains unchanged. The stakes are high enough.

The final outcome of this prolonged human tragedy in Syria, which is the inevitable and disgusting companion of any civil war, has a direct bearing on the credibility of Russia's standing in regional geopolitics and on the efficiency of its diplomacy.

Bullets cowardly shot in the back that killed Russian top diplomatic envoy will invariably have an impact on the emerging, albeit still feeble, triangular cooperation between Russia, Turkey and Iran.

Contrary to the most likely expectations of those who have contracted the killing, instead of derailing the rapprochement between the three regional powers, the incident will energize it.

  2. Re-posting comment that was published yesterday but has been deleted or your site is being hacked;
    This whole event was staged or set-up with the possible exception of the ambassador's assassination. The ambassador was obviously shot from the front...the camera pans to the shooter who is located to the rear of the ambassador. The shooter positions himself in such a way to create a good media pic. The shooter appears to be Jewish looking (Mossad agent/actor). The group of people huddling in the corner...staged actors and another good media shot. The ambassador is laid out in a 'cross'
    formation. The shooter is not dead and the blood smears are not related to his staged body....he also has lots of color for a corpse. The camera man continues to take pics, as stated in multiple news articles...and where is he conveniently staged? A few feet away in front of the shooter...snapping away while everyone else is huddled in a corner...come on.

    1. You're obviously blind, stupid or deliberately misdirecting the interested parties.
      One can clearly see the offending cannon BEHIND the unfortunate gentleman who we presume actually died.
      'Ye shall know them by their symbols'
      I suggest you dig a little deeper and find out who A. Who took the photograph of the weapon. B. Who struck the bronze.C. Listen to Mussorgskys little known 'The Dance Of The Unhatched Plots'

    2. Have you thought of going to Hollywood as a script writer?

      Pay attention: re: Sarin gas. The Russians have documented all of it along with evidence.

      RIP Andrey Karlov and condolences to your wife and family.

      Negative on the site being hacked too.

    3. I was only half joking, but if you think that the focus on the barrel of the cannon at the moment of 'Action' was a coincidence then I feel for you.
      Hollywood is often from whence they come, and to where they return - 'Hiding in plain view and mocking the victims'
      Hollywood can't afford me, and LA is too big and smelly anyway.
      As far as Sarin is concerned I see no reference to it in the above article so I wonder what point you are making? Most 'breaking news' isn't at all, but the use of Sarin, by whom and where is crumbling papyrus by now, surely.

    4. Just before the assassin, Mevlut Altintas, fired four or five rounds into Andrey Karlov's back, Andrey Karlov was getting ready to answer the reporter's question on the use of Sarin gas in Aleppo.

      Fourteen NATO (one American and one Israeli) operatives/mercenaries were apprehnded by the SAA and Russians in eastern Aleppo. They were there to locate the Sarin gas (1300 Syrians were murdered with Sarin gas and 62 in a previous attack) to prevent the Russians and the Syrians getting to it first, The Russians have documented it and probably have the serial numbers linking the gas back to Libya.

      Do you think the Clinton Foundation is a charity or a mechanism hiring out a private army for private gain through the privatization of war?

      RIP Andrey Karlov and the bodies keep stacking up.

    5. Yes, perhaps in the context you have explained 'the details' might have been a controversial revelation.
      However, the function Andrey Karlov was attending seemed low key enough to leave his security detail at his embassy. Perhaps they were 'otherwise engaged' in the kitchen, or sharing a lavatory selfie? A foreign 22 year old second hand cop overseeing the safety of the Russian Ambassador? I wonder how many hollow point impacts it takes to explode enough bone and internal organ to either send a few sections of rib into the audience, or have some blood evacuate a body. I can't be bothered to scour the net to find any evidence of the lack of muzzle flash alluded to in the post below, but the link provided features footage that has the muzzle obscured at the moment that the poster believes proves their point.
      You do know that seeking attention for nefarious reasons is the modus operandi of many 'commenters' don't you? It's otherwise known as 'bait'. Are you master enough to hook The Leviathan, Job?
      Clinton who? Oh yeah, I remember now...hot air rises.

    6. > Yes, perhaps in the context you have explained 'the details' might have been a controversial revelation.

      Obscure.

      > However, the function Andrey Karlov was attending seemed low key enough to leave his security detail at his embassy.

      The gallery up until that time was frequently used by the embassy staff for such events.

      > Perhaps they were 'otherwise engaged' in the kitchen, or sharing a lavatory selfie?

      Irrelevant.

      > A foreign 22 year old second hand cop overseeing the safety of the Russian Ambassador?

      Perfect. And he wasn't responsible for anything. He penetrated exterior security by displaying his police identification.


      > I wonder how many hollow point impacts it takes to explode enough bone and internal organ to either send a few sections of rib into the audience, or have some blood evacuate a body.

      Obscure. Forensic on ballistics, type of weapon, type of bullets used have not been confirmed/released.

      I can't be bothered to scour the net to find any evidence of the lack of muzzle flash alluded to in the post below, but the link provided features footage that has the muzzle obscured at the moment that the poster believes proves their point.

      > Proves nothing. Supposition only.

      > You do know that seeking attention for nefarious reasons is the modus operandi of many 'commenters' don't you? It's otherwise known as 'bait'.

      Don't quite know how to respond to this other than you possibly being a troll or sent here to misdirect.

      > Are you master enough to hook The Leviathan, Job?

      Baiting.

      > Clinton who? Oh yeah, I remember now...hot air rises.

      Ask bill about any rising issues.

  3. Here's another video angle on the assassination of the R. ambassador. Please note that the 'shooter' moves to the left so that he would not be hit by the bullet that hits the ambassador from the front. Also no flash from the shooters gun.

  6. The propaganda came from arch Zionist Rita KATZ , IT DOESN GET ANY MORE FAKE THAN THAT . When we learned that ISIS took credit for the Berlin Christmas Market terror attack, we were flabbergasted. Much here made no sense at all, particularly that the named individual was such an embarrassment to the German government. The smell was overwhelming.

    Then we learned that the ISIS claim really came from “Fake News Queen Rita Katz” of SITE Intelligence, the same fabricator that burned both Bush and Blair with phony atrocities and WMD stories that pushed the US and Britain into attacking Iraq.
