We tended to forget the ‘mini’ crisis in the Black Sea, in fact, it was his right. We only wondered why the British destroyer and not the US warships were heading towards the Russians, we had reasonable explanations; The Baltic-Black Sea-Caspian row, except for the last corner, was the manifestation of the updated US-UK ‘naval alliance’ after Brexit, as well as the special hate front of London-Moscow…

This line showed Russia its ‘boundaries’. Just as the US understood the ‘red line’ in Ukraine, although it could not digest it, these were now ‘more’ NATO borders. Moreover, it was constantly reinforced militarily. So was the Baltic, even Greece and some of the Balkan partners of the Black Sea…

Indeed, the traditional ‘NATO-Sea Breeze’ exercise, cited as a reason for ‘His Majesty’s’ destroyer to survey Russian waters, started in the Black Sea on Monday evening. The difference compared to previous years is the record level of participation; 32 NATO countries, including Ukraine, 5 thousand soldiers, 32 navy ships, 40 aircraft, 18 special operations and diving teams…

So is the duration; It will last until July 23. As a matter of fact, ‘this movement’ exists as much as Russia is uncomfortable, and that’s the goal anyway. The Chief of the General Staff also came out and said, “Next time we will hit the ship.” The address of President Putin’s statements before the exercise, “cancel this”, and a few hours before the start of the exercise, “Sarmat ballistic missile, ‘Tsirkon’ hypersonic missile and S-500 system will start to work soon” is always the same. Let it stay in this pocket…

WAS A ‘LONG BLADE’ FROM HERE?

We said ‘we were inclined to forget’. There were already more pressing issues on Turkey’s foreign policy agenda; The Afghanistan issue is generally between the objection of ‘what are we doing in the swamp’ and the defense of ‘we must be at the critical passage somehow’, but it is still a fight

discussed and unfortunately drowned in the shallows. I’m not going to go into details, ‘Why Afghanistan? You read it in The Map Wants It. (26/06.)

However, there was another profile that those who were really interested in the subject unanimously ‘searched’ for, it was definitely a footnote; how in the Black Sea

If we are wondering about British mobility, how could the character who started the two-hundred-year-old story of the Middle East and West Asian conflicts not be on the stage in a geography like Afghanistan, where the British have always been, and where the deep British presence has been seen in the historical process like Pakistan and India?

This is the other pocket…

THEY SAY ‘WE DID NOT DO IT’!..

The strange event that connects England with both events, namely both the Black Sea and Afghanistan, took place at a bus stop… (Whatever happens in England, it happens at stops and stations. No spy stories, assassinations, bomb or knife attacks, or subways. either the train takes place at the bus stations. Or the park benches. A separate issue.)

The 50-page document containing classified information belonging to the British Ministry of Defense was found by an ordinary citizen at a bus stop in the country’s city of Kent and handed over to the BBC. Then the ministry dismantled the investigations…

In one of these documents, there were analyzes/scenarios about how Russia would react if a British warship passed through the Black Sea-Crimea offshore. The ship to pass was already clear; HMS Defender. There are more details, but since the event happened, it is no longer considered critical information.

The Black Sea case was obviously a calculated and calculated ‘gunboat diplomacy’ attempt by the UK from start to finish. Even the presence of journalists on the warship means that. Combined with the exercise, it turned to ‘poke the bear’, which is also separate.

HOW MANY ENGLAND ARE THERE?

Let’s come to the second part of the documents; It is mentioned whether the UK will continue its military presence in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of NATO. Since the ‘importance/danger’ of the pages with the ‘Confidential’ warning was noticed by the BBC, this section was not broadcast in order not to endanger the military personnel.

However, this is clear; The documents contain ‘extremely sensitive’ recommendations regarding the continuation of the British army’s presence in Afghanistan. The assistance requested by the USA from the UK on certain issues is being evaluated. It is determined that “Afghanistan has already become more dangerous”. It is asked, ‘Should we just leave the special forces?’

As a matter of fact, the documents also contain e-mails. So internal correspondence. They have never been broadcast before. It would be interesting to see all the documents, but the real question is, how did they get lost? The ‘falling down’ of the actual documents determining British national security/foreign policy is not credible. Now the leaking is a subject that must be wondered about and it should be asked to whom “wet documents” are speaking…

ARE EUROPEAN ALLIES STRONG?

However, if we say “we laughed and had fun” in the section up to this point, there is another part of the documents that is avoided to be discussed…

It contains sensitive observations of areas where Britain could find itself in competition with European allies. For example, the arms trade. There is a smell of post-Brexit anxiety in the comments attributed to the Secretary of Defense, who insists that the six-member European Joint Armaments Cooperation Organization (OCCAR), of which the UK is a member, “shouldn’t exist”. Those countries besides England, namely possible competitors, are France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Belgium.

When we look at the picture from this point of view, we can talk about the British perspective, which can be placed separately in the discussions on NATO and the European army. Let’s open; Leaking of classified documents under three headings shows Britain is hesitant in its global elections…
