If relations with Turkey turn sour Putin is in a position to become a dominant force in the ME because unlike us he will have their leaders on side. I am wondering through all this just how pro-russia Erdogan actually is.

Like I said... perfect timing.

Full moon, cardinal cross, Trump pulling ahead in the elections and Brexit.

Europe needs an enemy, I've been saying it since the day the Brit's vote out.

They aren't sitting ducks. Like I have already said the first hint of hostile action directed at that site will bring about catastrophic consequences for Erdogan. Do you not think the US has intelligence sources within the Turkish government and military?

I don't know but I know for sure we can't under estimate anyone ever.

We did that in Afghanistan and look how that turned out.

Bring it on😂.I live in Pennsylvania. First get past the hunters. Then deal with rest of us.
Also think of the millions billions the U.S. dumps to the Turkish Cronies. Willing to give that up Erdagon?

Poster I'm not barking at you 👍

No chance. His removal of the judicial system is evidence of this. Erdagon is acting paranoid. He wants a dynasty.

Erdagon needs to go😊

As a general rule here at ATS, I don't fully go with RT.
But there are several news sources to this issue.

Much respect to onequestion 😊

ultimately the reason Turkey is an ally (in my opinion) is to give western governments a foothold in the Middle East. Our position in the ME is about natural resources and always has been. For that reason I don't see western governments giving up alliance with Turkey easily. Erdogan will probably use that to his advantage. If he does want to reshape things there for better or worse I see a blind eye being turned towards him doing so. Look at Saudi Arabia. Pretty barbaric things happen there and America is still sharing a bed with them. If Erdogan was to turn his back on the US and start looking east Putin would welcome him with open arms. At that point I would see a coup happening and this time it wouldn't fail because it would have CIA support. That's my view on it anyway.

I think the U.S. is going to learn a lesson about why it should be more isolationist soon.

Britain realized it and bailed out of the E.U. before too much damage was done.

A country can't use it's people and resources to produce goods to be sold overseas and elsewhere when the people can no longer afford to participate in the economy.

This is all a bankers game.

No, I think he just pulled a Stalin and purged all of those who he thought may have wanted to remain more secular.

If that's the case it's gonna be a mighty big caliphate.

They are very close to Iran, and have ties with IS.

Not good. Hopefully this blows over.

Natural resources. That is the end game in the Middle East. Do you think anyone would give a # if they weren't sitting on top of oil and gas?

Anyway back to the air base to avoid derailing someone's thread. I don't see any kind of hostile action being carried out against US forces there if I'm honest. There has been no report of any kind of attack or exchange of fire. Only the sounds of gunfire. The whole country probably sounds like that just now. It must be a tense situation there but not as dangerous as it looks.

Yes I do.

Many of the power brokers are religious zealots and dark occultist there's more at play than just it simply being resources.

Why do you think Rothchild zionist controlled Isreal was installed in the holy land after the Rothchild banking empire funded world wars?
