the reason why youtube is down in turkey


Bugünkü Suriye tapelerinin ilk partının İngilizcesi.



Ahmet Davutoğlu:

“Prime Minister said that in current conjuncture, this attack (on Suleiman Shah Tomb) must be seen as an opportunity for us.”

Hakan Fidan:

“I’ll send 4 men from Syria, if that’s what it takes. I’ll make up a
cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey; we can also prepare
an attack on Suleiman Shah Tomb if necessary.”

Feridun Sinirlioğlu:

“Our national security has become a common, cheap domestic policy outfit.”

Yaşar Güler:

“It’s a direct cause of war. I mean, what’re going to do is a direct cause of war.”



Ahmet Davutoğlu: I couldn’t entirely understand the other thing; what
exactly does our foreign ministry supposed to do? No, I’m not talking
about the thing. There are other things we’re supposed to do. If we
decide on this, we are to notify the United Nations, the Istanbul
Consulate of the Syrian regime, right?

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: But if we decide on an operation in there, it
should create a shocking effect. I mean, if we are going to do so. I
don’t know what we’re going to do, but regardless of what we decide, I
don’t think it’d be appropriate to notify anyone beforehand.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: OK, but we’re gonna have to prepare somehow. To avoid
any shorts on regarding international law. I just realized when I was
talking to the president (Abdullah Gül), if the Turkish tanks go in
there, it means we’re in there in any case, right?

Yaşar Güler: It means we’re in, yes.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: Yeah, but there’s a difference between going in with aircraft and going in with tanks…


Yaşar Güler: Maybe we can tell the Syrian consulate general that, ISIL
is currently working alongside the regime, and that place is Turkish
land. We should definitely…

Ahmet Davutoğlu: But we have already said that, sent them several diplomatic notes.

Yaşar Güler: To Syria…

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: That’s right.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: Yes, we’ve sent them countless times. Therefore, I’d
like to know what our Chief of Staff’s expectations from our ministry.

Yaşar Güler: Maybe his intent was to say that, I don’t really know, he met with Mr. Fidan.

Hakan Fidan: Well, he did mention that part but we didn’t go into any further details.

Yaşar Güler: Maybe that was what he meant… A diplomatic note to Syria?

Hakan Fidan: Maybe the Foreign Ministry is assigned with coordination…


Ahmet Davutoğlu: I mean, I could coordinate the diplomacy but civil war, the military…

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: That’s what I told back there. For one thing, the
situation is different. An operation on ISIL has solid ground on
international law. We’re going to portray this is Al-Qaeda, there’s no
distress there if it’s a matter regarding Al-Qaeda. And if it comes to
defending Suleiman Shah Tomb, that’s a matter of protecting our land.

Yaşar Güler: We don’t have any problems with that.

Hakan Fidan: Second after it happens, it’ll cause a great internal
commotion (several bombing events is bound to happen within). The border
is not under control…

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: I mean, yes, the bombings are of course going to happen. But I remember our talk from 3 years ago…

Yaşar Güler: Mr. Fidan should urgently receive back-up and we need to
help him supply guns and ammo to rebels. We need to speak with the
minister. Our Interior Minister, our Defense Minister. We need to talk
about this and reach a resolution sir.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: How did we get specials forces into action when there
was a threat in Northern Iraq? We should have done so in there, too. We
should have trained those men. We should have sent men. Anyway, we can’t
do that, we can only do what diplomacy…

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: I told you back then, for God’s sake, general, you
know how we managed to get those tanks in, you were there.

Yaşar Güler: What, you mean our stuff?

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: Yes, how do you think we’ve managed to rally our
tanks into Iraq? How? How did manage to get special forces, the
battalions in? I was involved in that. Let me be clear, there was no
government decision on that, we have managed that just with a single


Yaşar Güler: Well, I agree with you. For one thing, we’re not even
discussing that. But there are different things that Syria can do right

Ahmet Davutoğlu: General, the reason we’re saying no this operation is because we know about the capacity of those men.

Yaşar Güler: Look, sir, isn’t MKE (Mechanical and Chemical Industry
Corporation) at minister’s bidding? Sir, I mean, Qatar is looking for
ammo to buy in cash. Ready cash. So, why don’t they just get it done?
It’s at Mr. Minister’s command.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: But there’s the spot we can’t act integratedly, we can’t coordinate.

Yaşar Güler: Then, our Prime Minister can summon both Mr. Defence
Minister and Mr. Minister at the same time. Then he can directly talk to

Ahmet Davutoğlu: We, Mr. Siniroğlu and I, have literally begged Mr.
Prime Minster for a private meeting, we said that things were not
looking so bright.


Yaşar Güler: Also, it doesn’t have to be crowded meeting. Yourself, Mr.
Defence Minister, Mr. Interior Minister and our Chief of Staff, the four
of you are enough. There’s no need for a crowd. Because, sir, the main
need there is guns and ammo. Not even guns, mainly ammo. We’ve just
talked about this, sir. Let’s say we’re building an army down there,
1000 strong. If we get them into that war without previously storing a
minimum of 6-months’ worth of ammo, these men will return to us after
two months.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: They’re back already.

Yaşar Güler: They’ll return to us, sir.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: They’ve came back from… What was it? Çobanbey.

Yaşar Güler: Yes, indeed, sir. This matter can’t be just a burden on Mr.
Fidan’s shoulders as it is now. It’s unacceptable. I mean, we can’t
understand this. Why?


Ahmet Davutoğlu: That evening we’d reached a resolution. And I thought that things were taking a turn for the good. Our…

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: We issued the MGK (National Security Council) resolution the day after. Then we talked with the general…

Ahmet Davutoğlu: And the other forces really do a good follow up on this
weakness of ours. You say that you’re going to capture this place, and
that men being there constitutes a risk factor. You pull them back. You
capture the place. You reinforce it and send in your troops again.

Yaşar Güler: Exactly, sir. You’re absolutely right.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: Right? That’s how I interpret it. But after the
evacuation, this is not a military necessity. It’s a whole other thing.


Feridun Siniroğlu: There are some serious shifts in global and regional
geopolitics. It now can spread to other places. You said it yourself
today, and others agreed… We’re headed to a different game now. We
should be able to see those. That ISIL and all that jazz, all those
organizations are extremely open to manipulation. Having a region made
up of organizations of similar nature will constitute a vital security
risk for us. And when we first went into Northern Iraq, there was always
the risk of PKK blowing up the place. If we thoroughly consider the
risks and substantiate… As the general just said…

Yaşar Güler: Sir, when you were inside a moment ago, we were discussing
just that. Openly. I mean, armed forces are a “tool” necessary for you
in every turn.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: Of course. I always tell the Prime Minister, in your
absence, the same thing in academic jargon, you can’t stay in those
lands without hard power. Without hard power, there can be no soft


Yaşar Güler: Sir.

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: The national security has been politicized. I don’t
remember anything like this in Turkish political history. It has become
a matter of domestic policy. All talks we’ve done on defending our
lands, our border security, our sovereign lands in there, they’ve all
become a common, cheap domestic policy outfit.

Yaşar Güler: Exactly.

Feridun Siniroğlu: That has never happened before. Unfortunately but…

Yaşar Güler: I mean, do even one of the opposition parties support you
in such a high point of national security? Sir, is this a justifiable
sense of national security?

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: I don’t even remember such a period.


Yaşar Güler: In what matter can we be unified, if not a matter of national security of such importance? None.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: The year 2012, we didn’t do it 2011. If only we’d took serious action back then, even in the summer of 2012.

Feridun Sinirlioğlu: They were at their lowest back in 2012.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: Internally, they were just like Libya. Who comes in and
goes from power is not of any importance to us. But some things…

Yaşar Güler: Sir, to avoid any confusion, our need in 2011 was guns and
ammo. In 2012, 2013 and today also. We’re in the exact same point. We
absolutely need to find this and secure that place.

Ahmet Davutoğlu: Guns and ammo are not a big need for that place. Because we couldn’t get the human factor in order…
