Syrian Civil War and the Turkish-Kurdish WarEdit
In 2012 the government of Syria fell as a result of the Syrian Civil War. However, the civil war continued as a war between the Kurds and the Syrians. On August 10 2012, they finally signed a peace treaty. Syria was split up in two: the Syrian Arab Republic and the Kurdish Republic of Syria.
After the treaty, Kurdish Syria teamed up with Turkish Kurdistan, which declared independence on August 29, seeking a greater nation. But that was a great mistake: Turkey declared war on Kurdish Syria on August 31 2012. The Turkish-Kurdish War had started.
In late September, Turkey started to invade Kurdish Syria, and on November 5 2012, the country was under Turkish administration. It was now officially part of Turkey as the Suriye Province and dissolved the same day along with Turkish Kurdistan.
Iraqi Civil War and the annexation of KurdistanEdit
Main article: Iraqi Civil War
On November 8, a few days after the Turkish annexation of Kurdish Syria, Iraqi Kurdistan declared independence and started fighting Turkey. On December 28 2012, the Kurdish regions in Turkey, Iraq and Iran formed Kurdistan, causing Turkey to fight beyond its borders. On January 8, the Coalition launched an invasion of Kurdistan, and on March 23, the Iraqi Civil War as a whole ended with coalitional victory.
On March 27, Turkey annexed all of Kurdistan as well as the disputed West Azerbaijan Province in Iran, arguing that in order to stabilize the region, Kurdistan had to be under the control of one country. This was strongly criticized by Russia, China and various other countries.
Azerbaijani Civil WarEdit
Main article: Azerbaijani Civil War
In February 2013, the Azerbaijani Civil War began as a result of 2 terror attacks in Baku and Tabriz, which killed more than 35 people. The Islamic Party was responsible for attacks and began to occupy villages in the Zanjan Province. On February 20, they took control of the city of Zanjan.
On March 31, a few days after the Turkish annexation of Kurdistan, a car bomb exploded in Urmia in the disputed West Azerbaijan Province. The attack caused Turkey to enter the war together with the same coalition as the one that occupied Iran and Iraq. A bloody battle was fought in Zanjan, but on April 20, the Coalition declared that they successfully had occupied southern Azerbaijan. The new government was very pro-Western and a close ally of Turkey.
Greek Civil War and 3. Greco-Turkish WarEdit
In late 2012, after the Greek government had fallen, the Greek Civil War began. The war was fought between the nationalists, led by Golden Dawn, and the communists, led by SYRIZA. Additionally, the rich islands declared independence as the Aegean Republic on January 5. Later, the nationalists turned genocidal against immigrants, who then began to support the communists. On March 7, the communists had won the civil war, and the Hellenic People's Republic of Greece was formed.
In March 2013, Communist Greece attacked the Aegean Republic and Cyprus. However, they also attacked the Turkish-inhabited Northern Cyprus, causing Turkey to intervene. Communist Greece attempted to invade the East Thrace, and the NATO threatened with a full-scale invasion of Communist Greece, if they didn’t stop violating Turkish sovereignty.
In late March, the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) declared their support to Communist Greece, and began making attacks across Turkey. On April 3, the NATO began invading Communist Greece and also sent troops to Kurdistan. On June 15, the final Battle of Athens began, and more than 130 people were killed.
On June 22, the NATO declared that it successfully had occupied all of Greece, and that the communist-regime had finally fallen. The organization had a plan for the restabilization of the country and quickly inserted a new pro-western government, which would be supported by NATO-troops. The official name of Greece was changed to the Republic of Greece.
Unification with Azerbaijan and the formation of the Turk RepublicEdit
On June 19, Azerbaijan and Turkey signed a treaty, which allowed Turkey to annex Azerbaijan as a new province. Prior to the unification, a vote was held among the population, and the results showed that the plurality of the population didn't supported it. Some weeks later, on July 1, the official name of Turkey was changed to the Turkgay. This expanded the Turkish sphere of influence and became a starting shot for talks to create a Central Asian Union.
