World War 3: Turkey Makes Qatar Crisis Worse
Turkey to send troops to Qatar
Turkey’s cooperation with Qatar comes as several countries and organizations – including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Egypt, Yemen, the Maldives, and one of Libya’s three rival governments – cut ties with Doha on Monday, accusing it of financing terrorist groups ranging from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) to Iran-backed militants.
Erdogan has started a dangerous game that may see form the base of a new threat to world peace, since seizing control of the country and starting to rebuild the Ottoman Caliphate Erdogan has been showing his true colours.
He has already started to implement ISIS like moral codes banning some television programming, he has stepped up the Turkish genocide against the Kurds.
He is trying to reintroduce the Shariah type death penalties, he has urged Muslims to invade Jerusalem, he has withdrawn from the EU, but today he may have overstepped his boundaries.
He is now expanding is destructive influence to Qatar. He has now ratified legislation, which was fast-tracked by parliament, to deploy Turkish troops to Qatar. The training and assistance mission will boost the “security of the entire region,” the Qatari foreign minister said amid a diplomatic rift with its Gulf neighbors.
Erdogan signed off on the Turkish Parliament’s approval late Thursday night, after earlier criticizing the Arab nations which had moved to isolate Qatar over its alleged support of terrorism, the presidential office said in a statement.
“Turkish troops are coming to Qatar for the sake of the securıty of the entire region,” Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani told the press on Thursday, as cited by Hurriyet.
Qatar said it will not allow any outside interference in its foreign policy.
“No one has the right to intervene in our foreign policy,” Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani told AFP. “We are not ready to surrender, and will never be ready to surrender the independence of our foreign policy.”
The Sheikh also rejected a “military solution as an option” to end the crisis, claiming that Doha, despite any sanctions against it, could survive “forever.”
