Right before the presidential election, discussions about lowering the credit rating of Turkey have arisen. Given the current state of Turkey's economy, such a decision is not rational and doesn't make sense from technical and scientific points of view. Credit rating agencies including Moody's, which is said to be issuing a negative evaluation of Turkey by lowering Turkey's credit rating, would be shooting themselves and the system in the foot.
One doesn't have to be an expert to realize this truth; this is a fact one can easily see when the situation is observed. Therefore, I hereby dedicate this open letter to the ideology behind the declaration Moody's will make today and to anyone that defends and applies this ideology in politics:
You have thrown Turkey's credit rating into the trash can. Which country will you suggest to your investors, the E.U., with Italy still suffering from recession and Portugal dealing with a corrupted financial system? Or will U.S. be your choice? The U.S., which is in turmoil due to conflicts within the Federal Reserve and which requires cheap dollars since China does not prefer to keep U.S. currency and dollarbased stocks and bonds anymore because of the empowering "communists." Well, we can also consider Russia. Putin, who is now backed by 85 percent of the public, might be willing to give up his Crimea and Ukraine strategies just for your sake; Gazprom might again cooperate with Germany and you will have your share with the "old" oligarchy. If not these, then maybe we can suggest Uganda, Kenya and Somali, where you have created various bloodbaths. I'm not sure if Somali's Mogadishu can replace Istanbul but that is where Chinese companies are gathering right now. What you couldn't do through destructive ways, they will be able to within 10 years and this region will realize that there is another solution beside civil wars.
Let me tell you this; whether you lower Turkey's credit rating today or issue a warning complaining about the high inflation rate and your concerns about who runs the economy doesn't make any difference. With such moves, you can't rule an economy like Turkey's. Those days are over. This Sunday, the Turkish public will also make you understand that ship has sailed. Yet your tragedy doesn't end here, within the borders of Turkey. You will no longer be able to control various regions of Iraq with high energy production potential like Kurdish region, Basra and also the Caspian Sea region. Borders, regimes, governments, ideologies and mentalities will change in this geography.
You have messed up liberalism so much that we don't know if we can clean the blood off its hands. Pure liberalism, or in economic terms, pure free market economics has only been around for the past 40 to 50 years. Although this liberalism-free market did exist for a while, it didn't stop by our land. We were only exposed to monopolistic capitalism with whips and cannons and also neoliberalism recently.
And from now on we won't be fooled by the lie that we are bound to the West since liberalism/ freedom is there. Not only Turkey, but Latin America, which you have tried to ruin by creating civil wars and military juntas, is also aware that the West is not a solution. Argentinian President Kirchner called you a scavenger vulture because you tried to seize the public's money with your tricks at the American courts. Well said…
You can no longer rob Argentina, Dilma Rousseff 's Brazil, Michelle Bachelet's Chile because now they know better.
Turkey is the same. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is a politician that has suffered various coups such as the Sept. 12 and Feb. 28 attempts, has been fighting ever since he said 'enough' and kicked the International Monetary Fund out of the country in 2008. He knows you and everyone who is working for you. You have threatened us, attempted coups, conspired against us but it was not enough. At least not like Özal times. You thought Özal was a blind liberal but what a shock. Even he didn't stick with you until the end. The first young man who saw what you really are was Adnan Kahveci and you destroyed him and his family as well as the gendarmerie commander and his entire force. Then, Turkey was condemned to neoliberal IMF prescriptions thanks to coups and political tutelage as well as the media controlled by you . This country transferred or lost its entire savings to various companies and organizations based in London, Washington or Frankfurt. You have blockaded the AK Party government from 2002 to 2008. Your headlines were full of "we told you so, see Shariah is here," whenever Erbakan's aims were uttered before Feb. 28.
The Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey was always under your control. While you were claiming that democracy requires independent central banks; you had no problem with interfering.
The treasury was also under your control. While budgets, according to liberalism, are only a technical matter, we know the truth that budgets have been the most political public policy tool since Prophet Yusuf. We know and speak of Prophet Yusuf 's budget. You know how to steal from the poor; there was the Chile Coup and Milton Friedman's - the mentor of the killer Pinochet - budget.
However, when we talk about the economy, justice comes to mind - Prophet Muhammad's Medina comes to the mind. When you talk about the economy, you never think of those kids who died of drought in Africa and the Middle East but the dollars that have now been injected into Wall Street at the expense of those children. The bombs that are dropping on Gaza now are paid from the deficits of your budgets.
On a winter day 21 years ago, in 1993, you killed Adnan Kahveci because he was a Finance Minister that did not believe in the budget of Friedman - a consultant of the killer Pinochet and one of the prominent names in neoliberalism. But you won't be able to take away another person like Adnan Kahveci. On the contrary; we will take back what we have given to you as well. Don't worry; as of this month everything will change.
