A team of Turkish intelligence officers have started fresh talks with ISIL leaders to discus freedom of the 21-year-old Turkish soldier Sardar Tash who is in ISIL’s custody, the Turkish-language Milliyet newspaper reported.

“The ISIL in an email to Turkish intelligence officials has sent a list of 200 jailed militants in Turkey and asked for their freedom in lieu of the jailed Turkish soldier,” Milliyet quoted Turkish intelligence officials as saying.

Ankara has recently taken a U-turn towards the ISIL and it has already arrested tens of Takfiri militants across Turkey, although experts describe the policy suspicious and superficial, saying that Ankara wants to escape the sharp criticisms that it is crushing Kurds, but showing ignorance and tolerance with regard to the ISIL terrorists.

Ankara is still, though, expressing its full support for the Al-Nusra Front – the official branch of the Al-Qaeda in Syria. In July, Turkey’s MİT warned against possible attacks by the ISIL Takfiri group inside Turkey.

The MİT issued a warning for the country’s foreign ministry, police and security forces that the Takfiri militants, who have retreated from Syria’s border regions, are trying to cross into Turkey, Turkish media reported in July. The ISIL militants could be working on armed or bombing attacks in the Turkish cities, MİT said.

The Turkish-language Sözcü newspaper wrote that the ISIL terrorists attempted to cross into Turkey from Syria’s Reqqa province on July 15 and carry out their terrorist acts in Qaziantep and Hatay cities in Turkey.

The warning by the MİT came as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan admitted in early July that Ankara has directly supported terrorists in Syria.

“If it were not due to the support of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar for the militants in Syria, they could not have achieved anything,” Erdogan said on July 5, Turkish-language daily Hurriyat reported.

He noted that Ankara, Riyadh and Doha have supplied military and logistical backup for the terrorists. Erdogan’s remarks came as his Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu denied any cooperation between Turkey and Saudi Arabia in supporting the foreign-backed terrorists.

On June 28, the London-based al-Hayat newspaper reported that 12,000 Turkish forces are ready for military intervention in Syria under the pretext of creating a buffer zone to protect the Turkish borders against the threat of the terrorist groups.

200 Chechen Militants Killed by ISIL after Fleeing War in Raqqa

He said that the defectors were headed to a natural hole in the ground in the countryside of al-Raqqa where they were murdered and their bodies dumped.

“Another 21 militants of Caucasian nationalities were gunned down by ISIL in August after they left their guard posts,” the defector commander said.

He noted that the 21 were executed militants with heavy machineguns before they could escape the battle over Aleppo’s military airport.

In July, a report said that Chechnya stood atop the list of nations who have the largest number of militants fighting against the Syrian government. According to the report by the Lebanon-based Al-Manar satellite TV, Chechnya, with 14,000 militants, ranks first among the world countries – which also include European nations and the US – whose citizens have joined the terrorists in Syria.

The report also said that Turkey plays the most important role in sneaking terrorists from Chechnya and other countries into Syria.

A sum of 3,671 Chechen terrorists have been killed and 1,397 others have been missing in Syria. A recent UN report revealed that terrorists from 29 countries have so far infiltrated into Syria to fight against the Damascus government, most of whom are extremist Salafists.

One Response to “Despite Censorship, a War Far Greater Than Vietnam Continues









  1. Great update. Best one yet from GPD.
    I would be remiss if I did not mention something funny (strange) that has just occurred to me, as in reading the title…
    Yesterday Mr. Dean gave an excellent ‘sit-up’ that is the clusterf^%k in Syria. He mentioned he was writing the article due to the fact that past VT articles, on the fighting, were becoming convoluted, blurry and/or unclear (my words), and he wanted to clear things up, which he did.
    I agreed, and wrote a comment that GPD’s articles were taking on a “Vietnam-ish” feel to them. No insult intended, “I just calls ’em as I sees ’em”, and that’s what I saw, names of places and numbers with no real content. So, I found it kind of interesting as I turned on the LT this A.M., scrolled to VT, and at the top of the news list here, an article by GPD stating …”War Greater Than Vietnam…”
    Too strange….
    Wishing everyone at VT and its readers a happy “All Hallows Eve”
