"May be involved": Baku reveals the role of F-16 fighters in the Karabakh conflict


Turkish F-16 at the Ganja airfield


According to Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Baku can use Turkish F-16 fighters in Karabakh in the event of an attack on Azerbaijan by another country, Aliyev said on Monday 26 October.

When asked where Azerbaijan got its Turkish F-16s from, the head of state recalled the remaining Turkish combat aircraft at the Azerbaijani airfields after the military exercises of the Azerbaijani and Turkish armies at the end of this summer. From July 29 to August 10, military aviation took part in the exercises in Baku, Nakhichevan, Yevlakh, Ganja and Kurdamir; from August 1 to 5, the ground forces of the two countries were involved in maneuvers in Nakhichevan and Baku.

If foreign aggression is committed against us, they will see these F-16

- Ilham Aliyev emphasized, noting that the fighters are Ankara's help in repelling possible foreign aggression.

Baku and Yerevan earlier agreed on a ceasefire coming on Monday from 8:XNUMX local time. According to the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, Moscow welcomes any steps that can stop the bloodshed, and there is no need to show any rivalry or competition in the implementation of the process of resolving the conflict in the NKR.

    here are especially zealous Azerbaijanis. the propagandists foaming at the mouth argued that their Baku balabol does not lie and is responsible for the words, but in reality it turned out that he is verbiage, like his patron of Turks, at first "you will be fsevrete", then they exist and just stayed after the exercises, now they can be involved, the next step, according to the logic of events, they were used, but did not hit the target, etc.

      And who's lying here?

      The day before, 8 October, in an interview with CNN Arabic, the Azerbaijani leader stated that "F-16 fighters are on the ground" and stressed this several times, the Armenian portal "Mediamax" writes on Friday

          Well, google it yourself. Until October 8, as I recall, there was no talk at all about this. The first photos were published by the Armenian side on October 8. Or a couple of days earlier. And Aliyev did not say anything about this before this interview.

                      And in addition a lie. I. Aliyev never said that "there will be no." Googled the internet.

          And the Syrian mercenaries fighting on the side of Azerbaijan are complete nonsense, has anyone really understood this yet? laughing During the month of intense hostilities, the Armenian side did not present a single such mercenary, alive or dead. Conclusion - there are no such people in Karabakh and there were none. But representatives of the Armenian diaspora from different countries are actively joining the NKR armed forces, and they do not deny this in Yerevan either.

      They will not be used at this stage of the conflict. Turkish F16s are a very clear signal to the Kremlin. And effective, as history has shown.

            The red line for Azerbaijan is Lachin. I wrote that I. Aliyev received a sanction for five regions. Lachin was not included in this number. And from whom I received the sanction, I have been butting on this site for almost a month now. Obviously not from Erdogan.

              Why not from Erodgan? The complete capture of the entire Karabakh is just in the interests of Turkey.

                Logic ... Is the seizure of Karabakh in the interests of Turkey? And what exactly is Turkey's interest? Or maybe everything is simpler. LIBERATION of Karabakh in the interests of Azerbaijan. Doesn't that seem right?

                  Is the seizure of Karabakh in the interests of Turkey? And what exactly is Turkey's interest?

                  Turkey is becoming a regional power, it needs to show and prove its strength and status to both allies and rivals. Karabakh fits perfectly.

                  LIBERATION of Karabakh in the interests of Azerbaijan. Doesn't that seem right?

                  Then there is no reason for Turkey to fit into a possible conflict with the Russian Federation pursuing only the interests of the Azeris. The probability is low, but the risks are still taken into account.

                    Turkey is already a regional power. And without Karabakh. Russia and Turkey take into account the interests of each other in the Middle East and the South Caucasus. Or does someone consider Turkey to be a minor power in the region? Like Iraq or Lebanon? Turkey does not need to assert its influence by the capture of Karabakh. She already shows her allies and rivals "her status". So this argument is not convincing.

                    Turkey is not going to fit into the conflict with the Russian Federation. But it is good that you recognize the "interests of the Azeris". This means that the war for Karabakh is in the interests of not Turkey, but Azerbaijan. This is what I have been talking about for many years. And Erdogan's participation in this conflict is the participation of an ally. But not fighting.
                    ----
                    And the "attack by a third party" is a kind of repetition of 1994 in Kelbajar, when a blow was struck in the back of Azerbaijani troops from the territory of Armenia. If Azerbaijan takes Lachin, then the entire grouping in Nagorno-Karabakh may capitulate. And fast enough. This is clear to any layman. Even me. So I do not exclude a repetition of such a scenario. But yesterday there was a message that a Russian camp was being deployed in the Lachin direction. But for what purpose - no one conducted the analysis.

                      No. So far, Turkey is only a candidate for regional powers. The precedent with the Russian Federation does not count. It's just luck that the bunker sitter is a weakling and a scoundrel and is afraid to fight. He's afraid of a lot of things.
                      And if we go deeper into the issue, Turkey is pursuing the goal of creating "Great Turan". And for this it is necessary to completely remove the Russian Federation from the Caucasus and Central Asia. And for this you need to either win the military conflict, or intimidate with military and economic power so that they can get out themselves.

                        Who then rules the region? Maybe Syria? Or Iran? Or Israel? Turkey's position is taken into account by all players in the region. Positive or negative, but taken into account.

                        Just like Iran or Israel. And Turkey will go far, well, at least try to go.

                        Thank you, read it. But now opened the annotation

                        This provocative book instantly entered the New York Times bestseller list. Its author, American political scientist George Friedman, director of a private intelligence and analytical organization STRATFOR, offers readers a forecast of the changes that can be expected in the world in the XNUMXst century.

                        The fact is that at one time I became interested in Stratfor. And even signed up for monthly newsletters. Then I realized that it was a waste of time. Maybe they are writing serious analytics for the White House, but what they write in the open press is not worth a damn.
                        I'll look anyway. You have to know what people write. They tried.

                The analysis is correct, the conclusion is incorrect. The truce plays into the hands of Armenia. The truce can turn into a freeze of the conflict and then you have to start all over again.

    I give interviews (to foreign media) almost every day. I am asked about what Turkish F-16s are doing in our country? I'm tired of answering. You have a satellite - open it. Can't you see what the F-16s are doing? Pay attention to where they are, in the air or on the ground. Everyone knows they are at the airfield. These planes flew here to conduct exercises. Since the beginning of the war, they stayed in Azerbaijan. Our Turkish brothers left them to give us moral support. And further, if Azerbaijan is threatened by external aggressionthen everyone will notice these F-16s.

    In total there are five to six aircraft.

    For me, with the beginning of the war, Azerbaijan lost the remnants of its sovereignty, that is, the Turkish military who arrived there for military exercises, attacked the Armenian positions and presented Aliyev with a fait accompli, which in no way relieves him of responsibility. Turkey is preparing for the Anschluss of Azerbazhan.

    Is this how Aliev threatens Russia? It's just that Armenia won't do anything to Azerbaijan, with all its will. Then who? Turkey, yeah, Turkey is the direct inspirer and "roof" of Azerbaijan in this war. Iran? Iran has nothing else to do but attack Azerbaijan, no other country comes to mind. Or is it again blah blah blah so for convincingness !?
