Erdo-turd-land can threaten to shut down the Bosphorus. Russia can make sure that it stays behind its southern border for the coming decades.
No more incursions to chase Kurds and no more ISIS proxies. Russia needs to commit massive amounts of hardware to this effort. Smear ISIS
out much faster.
IF Turkey threaten to close the Bosphorus for Russai.. Russia can arm kurds to "fight ISIL"
But not sure if Russia see that as an act of war and enough to declare war against Turkey.
no idea how much Russia economy depends on that bosphorus crossing. But Russia can counter attack Turkey in many ways.. with Kurds and by sinking all its merchant ships ,closing the Suez canal too with egypt help, to saudi Arabia and Turkey,that will spike the oil prices to heaven. It will be a limited slow scale world war but that can become big one on any time. Russia can also sink all Turkey warship in black sea.. it will be difficult if not impossible for turkey to get close to Russia main land.. Im sure Russia before it went to Syria ,it had to take into account the very BIG possibility of a war with Turkey.
this means that they had to be deploying very strong air defenses from Sochit to Rostov done and Crimea..like a shield.. in fact the most likely war of NATO against Russia was always turkey.. so it will be unthinkable that Russia have not been preparing for a full scale war against them and which targets to attack.. On the Syria front..Russia will be weak..since syria territory is not ideal for creating a bullet proof shield of air defenses with so much territory captured by terrorist.
So Turkey can more effectively fight Russia in Syria. and if a war stat.. US can counter attack by starting the war in Ukraine. is a proxy war what Russia face.. for 5 years already. and the possibilities of it becoming direct are very high. . But in such kind of war.. lol Turkey will end with all its economy industries bombed.. and NATO will not interfere.. regardless what you heard or its secretary cheerleader says.. Since US will like to be on the sidelines selling weapons while Russia and Turkey fight.
and yes Turkey will be the BIGGEST LOSER.. i can see the nation disbanded in 5 years in a major civil war..if they go ahead with a war with Russia and IRAN .even worse that Syria.. no idea what Erdogan the bastard was thinking with starting a war against Russia ,that will drag IRAN too..and possibly CHINA ..
and with so big opposition of kurds in the front line.
in a full scale war against turkey.. that Russia is forced to use nukes.. i can see Russia invading Turkey side near Greece that is a small territory and controlling the right gate.. i can also see Russia invaded CYprus and returning the eastern side to them that was invaded by turkey..and creating there a huge military base. in case goes with limited nuclear use.. to military bases.. etc.. But for Americans it doesn't matter if Ukraine and Turkey defeated.. as they expect they will be..this is because.... Its an economic war against Russa
and the aim is to isolate Russia from Europe and crash its economy.. this is why Russia needs a bit of patience and long term planning in all its actions. and more than anything seek support ,even if only moral from Europe.. to defend against Turkey attacks.
