So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off. They said they would take a hard line on funding...
...extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism!

Why do people always assume the people in the path of conquerors will support that conquest? Who will stop him? The US comes to mind since we have treaties with several countries in Erdogans path.
Assuming that everyone who lived under Ottoman rule is naive... Not to mention those people who identify as citizens of the countries they live in and not subjects of the former Ottoman empire.
The Turkish military needs to end the Sultans reign before he destroys Turkey.
As for Israel you just keep pushing the Elders of Zion bs..
Qatari Foreign Minister: Hamas is a legitimate resistance group
Turkish PM warns of global consequences
Binali Yildirim, Turkey's prime minister, said on Saturday the diplomatic crisis in the Gulf could turn into a global problem if tensions flare.
"A new problem area that may be created here [in Qatar] would not be limited inside the region," Yildirim told a fast-breaking dinner in Istanbul.
On Sunday, the 47th flotilla, comprised of an Alborz destroyer and Bushehr logistic warship, set sail from the southern port city of Bandar Abbas after a ceremony attended by naval commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, Tasnim News reports. From Oman, the ships will head to the Gulf of Aden and international waters north of the Indian Ocean.
A week into the crisis Saudi Arabia instigated when it broke diplomatic relations with Qatar and imposed a land and air blockade of the tiny Gulf state, it is becoming clear that it is failing to bring Qatar to heel.
Instead Qatar has successfully secured pledges of support from Turkey and Iran – the two military giants in this region – appears to have the tacit support of Kuwait, and is gaining diplomatic traction with Russia.

Supposedly, Iran bought 5 artillery rounds in the kiloton range from Soviet stocks back when the USSR collapsed. There was theis period of time when disgruntled generals were selling off military assets to the highest bidder for early retirement. The news reports were squashed, I don't have a source.
Whether or not nuclear weapons were also sold on the black market is unclear, that post soviet era of arms sales to the black market was well dramatized by the film Lord of War with Nicolas Cage.
