Currency War on Turkey, Dollar Flight and Massive Stakes

The transatlantic financial elite are nearly throwing the kitchen sink at Turkey, as far as currency & economic war is concerned.  Since the Coup of 2016 didn’t work in making Ankara heel before Atlanticist imperial desires, the money vice is now re-deployed, as it had been over the past couple of years, and in clumsy, desperate fashion, driving this strategically vital NATO member (barely a NATO member at this point, though…) further eastward into the waiting arms of Russia, China, Iran, and their rising number of Eurasian, southern hemispheric and Belt & Road Initiative transcontinental partners & allies.

Yet the harder the fiscal belligerence against Turkey, the more transparent the means deployed, and the weightier the fodder obtained by Turkey & its non-NATO friends in using the very force of said economic war against the initiators & inflictors of an intended currency collapse against the Turkish lira.  This sense of counter-attack by Turkey & its eastern partners thereby sets an example for other nations targeted by Washington & its allies due to noncompliance or obstinance over such items as energy pipeline mandates, wider global developmental priorities & the very essence of a continuing unipolar versus a multipolar world order.

In this 27th episode of Money & Fear, and as always, in the show’s detailed Show Notes listed under the videos on our website, we’ll explore the hows & whys of Turkey’s national currency plummeting, and responses to said phenomena already initiated or pondered by Turkey & its eager Eurasian sponsors.  Come get a taste of how the currency war sausage is made so that you can have a better fluency for the wider global menu.

  3. Turkey will not evacuate any of its Muslim Brotherhood takfiri terrorists. Rather, Turkey will expand into Syria with the aid of Russia to reach Damascus through Aleppo (Halab). That’s when the Jordanian Army enters Syria to aid the Muslim Brotherhood wing starting from Dar’a. Damascus falls to the takfiris for around 9 months until they descend to Iraq regions such as Baghdad, Kufa, etc.

    Thank you, Pye Ian, for this crucial analysis.
