Turkey believes that half of the Aegean Sea as well as the east part of the east coast of the island of Crete belongs to the neo-ottoman hordes of Erdogan whose target is a so-called “Blue Motherland.”
The Turkish President dared to appear with the map of Turkey’s wet dreams on his back while he was signing the visitors’ book at the National Defense University, the Military Academy in Istanbul that was renamed into University after the failed coup in July 2016.
The map behind him showed Turkey’s maritime borders extended deep in the Aegean Sea stretching across the islands of the eastern and south-eastern Aegean including islands in the Dodecanese and even the Cyclades.
The map is entitled “Turkey Blue Motherland.”
The map indicates that some 460,000 square kilometers belong to Turkey.
The picture was taken on Sunday during celebrations of Turkey’s victory against the Greek Army that ended in the Asia Minor catastrophe, the burning of Izmir, hundred thousands of dead and over one million of refugees.
In statements during the celebrations, Erdogan said among others that Turkey would never allow the violation of the rights of Turks and Turkish Cypriots.
But the violations of Greek borders is OK?
PS Thank Goodness Ankara does not claim our iconic Santorini and Mykonos, and my favorite Paros and Antiparos…. *irony*
