If first-strike nukes fly ... goodbye China, North Korea, Pakistan and Iran too.
I won't shed a tear.
...but you'll probably end up shedding your skin, with all the fall out.
God, you humans make me sick.
NATO isn't involved with ISIS for a reason
The US has enough military might to fight a war and protect it's homeland
Again research does you good.
What militarized zone are you talking about...he just wants to keep illegals from entering our country illegally.
Turkey is a NATO member state and thus ISIS has being slightly a easy access into Turkey and back into Syria with ease the Turkish authorities arent doing anything.
“Because of legal adjustments necessary to harmonize with the European Union, the authority of our security forces to check the identity of suspects and detain them has been restricted," an officer on the Turkish-Syrian border told Al-Monitor last year. "For example, even if we know for sure that someone is an IS militant, we can’t touch him unless he has been involved in a violent crime in Turkey.”
Turkey since ISIS appearance hasn't done anything to prevent nor stop the oil cash flow from Turkey to ISIS in Syria.
Analysts speaking to TIME say it’s very unlikely Ankara has anything to do with ISIS oil — and Putin’s allegation about the incident carries no weight. “To go as far to say that Turkey would shoot down a plane to protect its oil supply is unfounded,” says Valerie Marcel, an associate fellow in energy, environment and resources at London-based think tank Chatham House.
Fawaz Gerges, Professor of International Relations in the London School of Economics and Political Science, agrees that the claims amount to a conspiracy theory. “I think it would be very misleading to say there is an unholy alliance with Turkey and the Islamic State,” he says.
That’s not to say ISIS oil isn’t being imported to Turkey. Illicit criminal networks and middlemen are moving oil generated in ISIS-held territories not only across the border to Turkish buyers, but also to Iraqi Kurdistan, to rival rebel groups in Syria and Jordan, and even to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.“ISIS sells to anyone, it’s not about ideology,” Gerges says. “They deal with the Kurds, Syrian regime, Islamist rivals. It’s just business.”
haha sure... So do the Russians and Chinese. The thing is with 800+ bases around the world and where is the naval defense of America's coastal areas?
The claim that US has enough military might to fight a war and protect it's homeland is pure nonsense. Unless of course you believe hollywood and its movies.
I have done my research, unless ur research comes from NATO and officials who are so supportive of the regime change in Syria and elsewhere then thats not research at all.
You cant do build just fences around the south borders without additional support. As gangs of course would find other ways to ship the illegals.
A vote so transparently illegitimate that not even China recognizes the results.
The thing is election monitors were in place
A vote done at the barrel of a gun with the only "election monitors" coming from Russia.
