You just blamed Assad, twice. I knew that would be the counter psyop "official position" as soon as I heard this come out from the Russians

I wonder what the terrorists make of this. We know most of them are being used as puppets to cover for this operation. Should they turn on their own who are carrying out all the atrocities in the name of religion.
It is them who we should be targeting with this info. They are the only ones who can sort this out. From inside.
For me it's also a concern about NATO and the U.S. I keep saying, if the Russians can archive and track this, then the U.S. KNEW about it. And if the U.S. knew about it, who else does.
Most of the oil is bought by local traders and covers the domestic needs of rebel-held areas in northern Syria. But some low-quality crude has been smuggled to Turkey where prices of over $350 a barrel, three times the local rate, have nurtured a lucrative cross-border trade.

The big de is that Ergodan literally just said he would resign if proof is shown Turkey supports ISIS oil trade. Then the next day this. Add that to as you said months of this and... Wow Ergodan. Way to prove yourself a farce.
I don't think this proves that Turkey - i.e. the Turkish state - supports ISIS and the illegal smuggling of oil. This just proves what we already know, so hardly proof. More a vindication of previous assertions.

Turkey is NATO
Wrong they are just one of many nations that make up NATO, meaning they are a part NATO not NATO in whole.
You're hand is a part of you… is you in fact. And doesn't lift a fingerer unless you say so. NATO is a military alliance, as a military entity it has a command headquarters and a top down chain of command.
Turkey is NATO, whatever headquarters wants Turkeys does. Nice try at absolving Brussels of blame for Turkey just "carrying out orders".
