Here's an article that claims that Erdogan's son is the one fueling ISIS leaving Turkey as the only one supporting ISIS after the US and Israel cut ties with the terrorist group.



“The Russian Minister reminded his counterpart about Turkey’s involvement in the ISIS’ illegal trade in oil, which is transported via the area where the Russian plane was shot down, and about the terrorist infrastructure, arms and munitions depots and control centers that are also located there.”
And while we patiently dig to find who the on and offshore “commodity trading” middleman are, who cart away ISIS oil to European and other international markets in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars, one name keeps popping up as the primary culprit of regional demand for the Islamic State’s “terrorist oil” – that of Turkish president Recep Erdogan’s son: Bilal Erdogan.
ISIS militants were trained by US, Israeli and now it emerges, by Turkish special forces at secret bases in Konya Province inside the Turkish border to Syria, over the past three years. Erdo?an’s involvement in ISIS goes much deeper. At a time when Washington, Saudi Arabia and even Qatar appear to have cut off their support for ISIS, they remaining amazingly durable. The reason appears to be the scale of the backing from Erdo?an and his fellow neo-Ottoman Sunni Islam Prime Minister, Ahmet Davuto?lu.



The truth is stranger than fiction. What says ATS?

If Turkey is in NATO, then NATO is indirectly supporting ISIS and at the same time the U.S

No the zombies are the ones supporting the wests actions in Syria that have resulted in Isis doing what they want and surprisingly doing so well considering the best airforce in the world hasn't been able to cull them or even stop them from selling oil that is transported in truck convoys :-/

Funny isn't it

It might also be the truth.

SOMEBODY in Turkey has been buying all that ISiS oil - to the tune of well over a million dollars a day. Erdogan has shown that he can't be trusted, raising tensions with Russia to a new high by downing a fighter jet that was no immediate threat to Turkey's national security, just a little cheeky trying to sneak in a shortcut through their airspace.

It's not Russian propaganda. The relationship between Turkey and ISIS has been reported on through mainstream media sources:

www.foxnews.com...

ISIS controls nearly all of Syria's oil fields, concentrated in the east of the country, producing some 30,000 barrels a day, along with one field in Iraq. It smuggles the oil mainly to Turkey, selling at cut-rate prices and generating nearly $50 million a month.


www.washingtontimes.com...

“Now this either gets consumed inside, the crude is refined on Turkish territory by the Turkish refineries, and sold in the Turkish market. Or it goes to Jihan and then in the pipelines from Jihan to the Mediterranean and sold to the international market.

“Money and dollars generated by selling Iraqi and Syrian oil on the Turkish black market is like the oxygen supply to ISIS and its operation,” he added. “Once you cut the oxygen then ISIS will suffocate.”


It's not surprising because Turkey is an islamic country. Liberals still refuse to believe we are at war with islam and not with a random terrorist group which just coincidentally happens to be mostly muslim.

It doesn't sound like a propaganda piece to me. Erdogan's name has come up time and time again in the purchasing of oil from ISIS


From the article:



The Russian Minister reminded his counterpart about Turkey’s involvement in the ISIS’ illegal trade in oil, which is transported via the area where the Russian plane was shot down, and about the terrorist infrastructure, arms and munitions depots and control centers that are also located there.





while we patiently dig to find who the on and offshore “commodity trading” middleman are, who cart away ISIS oil to European and other international markets in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars, one name keeps popping up as the primary culprit of regional demand for the Islamic State’s “terrorist oil” – that of Turkish president Recep Erdogan’s son: Bilal Erdogan.

His very brief bio: Necmettin Bilal Erdogan, commonly known as Bilal Erdogan (born 23 April 1980) is the third child of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the current President of Turkey. After graduating from Kartal Imam Hatip High School in 1999, Bilal Erdogan moved to the US for undergraduate education. He also earned a Masters Degree in John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in 2004. After graduation, he served in the World Bank as intern for a while. He returned Turkey in 2006 and started to his business life.

Bilal Erdogan is one of the three equal shareholders of “BMZ Group Denizcilik “, a marine transportation corporation.


There aren't direct ties (it doesn't sound like) but the BMZ Group, the company for which he is one of 3 equal shareholders

The whole thing is very fishy indeed.

Check out this Wikipedia article:

American-led intervention in Syria

To tell you the truth it looks like they are dragging as many nations as possible into the Syria campaign. It is like the whole world are bombing in Syria.

Who are they actually bombing? Before it was Assad and only recently have they started bombing IS (I am not sure how active they really are).

I recall how quickly they dealt with Saddam and a big country like Iraq. That was pretty much just U.S and UK. Does it take this whole circus show of nations and air power to deal with little Syria and Assad?

I am not sure what to think right now. It looks as if they are totally tooling up the region with military hardware and air power. Aircrafts Carriers in the Med, Russia and U.S both bombing in a tiny air space. It is a wonder there is any space left for civilians. No wonder they have all moved out, lol.

The whole situation is very unusual, unique, peculiar. May be they want to escalate this conflict and everyone start sending armies there to die? May be boots on the ground day is approaching. The UK Prime Minister is DESPERATE to get included. Why bother when all those other nations and their air power are there? Also, in the Western countries terrorism may yet play an increasing role in terms of incidents and casualties. The political and power capital from this scenario is staggering. I see that clearly. Strong control through anti terror legislation, heavily controlled populations are just the beginning of a long list of gains for those doing the controlling and benefitting from it.

I am watching the masses become more and more predictable. It is like the media just have to click their fingers and the masses will oblige, sometimes Internationally, from agreeing to military action because of outrage at certain terrorist incidents to purchasing at certain times like Black Friday as and when told to do so. How bleak the future looks to me. Glad I don't have too long to go to witness this horror upon what was once a life worth living and fighting for; not any more thanks the darkness that is engulfing us.

Could Syria be the host nation for an International conflict and centre stage, with smaller terrorist related incidents playing out globally, too, as a new kind of World War with a fresh blueprint, tailor made for certain ends?

I smell a huge dirty rat. This is quite definitely being manufactured, manipulated and hyped.

I recently got the notion that behind the scenes they are wanting Israel to come out of this one day as a Middle Eastern super power. In terms of wealth, influence and alliance they already are, they just don't have the land control (yet). I think this could back fire though and Israel end up losing out big time.

And it all began that fateful day 9/11/2001.

Well this should unravel very quickly one way or another. Turkey's recent decision to down the Russian fighter has unleashed any bonds attached to the story and Putin will uncover it or at least manufacture enough doubt to complicate things for Erdogan. Mr. Erdogan says he will resign if true.

ben-swann.com...

It will be interesting to see how it all plays out and who exactly is involved and how much involvement there is. Mr. Erdogan is the one who is playing with fire and we may see Turkey's military step in as they have many times before to remove him from office.

According to estimates by the Rand Corporation, the Islamic State's total revenue rose from a little less than $1 million per month in late 2008 and early 2009 to perhaps $1 million to $3 million per day in 2014.

just WOW!

He won't resign because people don't understand syria. Did you know assaad pirchases oil from isis? He has to he net Ed's oil for his war effort. What he doesn't buy goes to blackmarketeers who will sell the oil to refineries and even rebel groups who also need oil to continue their fight. Turkey is playing the game of shipping and asking no questions for who. You can get a Turkish shipping company to ship goods to Iran or even north Korea no questions asked.

They have been shipping oil out if iran since oil embargo started. Blackmarketeers rely on Turkish shipping for that exact reason. It's kind of like what Switzerland did deposit your money here we will hide it for you. Turkey it's have is ship your stuff we don't care what it is or where it goes.

Turkish warships are stopping Russian supply ships from reaching Syria.

If and when Russia blows one of these ships out of the water, which is not impossible, then NATO will have to respond and that means USA will have to respond.

Turkey has a large military.

and Obama told Turkey to shut their borders, to little to late, ISIS is all over Europe and America

14,000 migrants go missing in Europe, you don't think that many of these migrants didn't make prior arrangements, to go underground with the help of others all ready there.

Turkey seems to be acting out of bounds with Russia only because Erdogan knows they have NATO backing. Without it, there's no way Turkey could take on Russia by itself.

Earlier this year, the Turkish daily Meydan reported citing an Uighur source that more than 100,000 fake Turkish passports had been given to ISIS…

A senior Western official familiar with a large cache of intelligence obtained this summer from a major raid on an ISIS safehouse told the Guardian that “direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members was now ‘undeniable.’” The same official confirmed that Turkey, a longstanding member of NATO, is not just supporting ISIS, but also other jihadist groups, including Ahrar al-Sham and Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria…

Turkey has also played a key role in facilitating the life-blood of ISIS’ expansion: black market oil sales. Senior political and intelligence sources in Turkey and Iraq confirm that Turkish authorities have actively facilitated ISIS oil sales through the country…

Last summer, Mehmet Ali Ediboglu, an MP from the main opposition, the Republican People’s Party, estimated the quantity of ISIS oil sales in Turkey at about $800 million — that was over a year ago.

By now, this implies that Turkey has facilitated over $1 billion worth of black market ISIS oil sales to date.

I don't think it happened either but if it did we have no official comments as far as I know. I think this is just a threat that Turkey is floating out there to remind putin. If I had to guess Turkeys next move it will be to move their koral radar hammers to the border. They have a range of 90 miles and can be used to destroy Russians jets situational awareness making them fly blind so to speak. This would make it easy to down then with Sam's from the rebels.

Turkey can make it very costly for the Russians to go after Turkish rebels near their border. It's a fight that put in is stupid to get in to.
