Sabah: Russia's accession to NATO will solve many international problems

The state of affairs in the world requires renewal of the membership of the North Atlantic Alliance. And the most reasonable move would be to include Russia in this military bloc. This extraordinary opinion was published by the Turkish edition of Sabah. The author of the article, journalist Mehmet Barlas, believes that today NATO is full of internal contradictions.

America supports Turkey's two enemies, the PKK and the Gulen Movement. In addition, Turkey and Greece, which make up NATO's southeastern wing, are almost on the brink of war. At the same time, Turkey, as a member of the alliance, deepens friendly dialogue with Russia, which the North Atlantic bloc views as an enemy.

- explains Barlas.

The author believes that NATO in its current form does not meet modern requirements. In order to stabilize the situation in the Middle East, it would not be superfluous to include the state of Israel in the military bloc, while Russia's membership would be required to balance the situation in the whole world.

The European part of NATO today "lives" at the expense of the image of the enemy in the person of Russia. At the same time, Moscow is the most active member of the Alliance in the fight against terrorism. I hope that someday my dream will come true and Russia will become a NATO member

- Barlas shared his wishes.

    And why is Russia? As the war between Turkey and Greece for Cyprus has shown, wars between NATO members are quite possible, and the United States uses NATO countries for its own purposes (only Cyprus can clearly observe the rotten behavior of the United States, then they were on the side of Turkey, now on the side of Greece, and The US is not interested in justice, their actions are guided only by the benefit of the US itself, here and now) ... Why does the Russian Federation need NATO as part of NATO? There are two reasons for this: 1) To disarm the Russian Federation, turning its army into a police force, as in the EU, so that it can then be pushed around without fear of opposition. 2) To involve the Russian Federation in a war against China, which today the Russian Federation does not need and does not meet its interests (China today opposes the United States and Japan, openly hostile against the Russian Federation, which means that here and now China is the counterweight that the Russian Federation can try to use against its enemies , concluding alliances and agreements with him)

      There was a time when Russia’s NATO membership seemed to make sense. There was a time when this became a funny joke. And now it is no longer funny and the thoughts of a clever Turk, alas, are outdated by 20 years.

      If Russia joins NATO, then the main cementing meaning of NATO in Europe - countering the Russian threat - will disappear!

        In this case, they are trying to lure Russia into NATO in order to realize Churchill's dream of Russia and Germany, only now China has taken Germany's place for the Anglo-Saxons. They would like the last Russian to kill the last Chinese (or vice versa), and then he died, followed. It is in order to destroy China with Russian hands, and at the same time to put an end to Russia, Russia is invited to NATO, for now these are gentlemen, although they are talking about Yalta-2 in Washington, but their goal is still the same.

          In this case, the Turks seem to start to smoke in one place, so they start to rush about in confusion and look for "compromises". That's all.

    You had such an opportunity not so long ago. Now it is more likely that France and Germany will join the CSTO than Russia will join NATO.

    At the beginning of 1997, the Washington Post published an article by Henry Kissinger in which he openly mocked “no Rybkins or myaskins' ideas” about Russia's accession to NATO. For, he frankly wrote, Russia will not see NATO membership as its ears: the bloc was not created for this.
