Delicious tears!!! Don’t sacrifice Turkey to save Syria
lol delicious tears indeed
fun fact for anybody that has not noticed yet, in case Ottoman-empire wannabe Erdoclown ends up shooting at the Russians. NATO will just leave Turkey be on the receiving end of the Russians.
a couple of behind the scenes remarks and facts so far.
after Turkey shot down that SU-24 even some of the hardliner NATO commanders in Brussels openly said in the Turkey-summoned meeting if they went insane shooting at the russians. that not even at the height of the cold war both NATO and Russian warplanes would never shoot at eachother for the potential consequences it might have. also, and appearantly Greece and Germany where the most vocal about it that NATO did not serve to go hide behind when you go start a war on your own.... just you know...unless NATO itself figured it could start one against an inferior enemy. either way, they made clear the Article 5 defense has to be agreed on unanimously and under the circumstances they would get no support.
and i mean?...seriously?. in what world of Reality would the Greek military go at Russia's throat?. to defend the Turks that shoot Russians in the back?.
while Merkel and Brussels still try to kiss Turkey's ass over the migrant crisis. EU NATO forces behind the scenes realise Turkey is actively looking to drag NATO into the conflict to carry the brunt of the dirty work. so, to Turkey's "dissapointment" european Patriot systems where still withdrawn out of turkey. honestly NATO is an empty shell either way but if i 'd had to sum up example's of that i have to write a page full of examples of that.
the most important reason NATO/U.S is not talking harshly against Turkey is because of the strategic importance and NATO bases Turkey has. and most likely some Skeletons in NATO's Closet in Turkey they do not want an irrational Erdogan spew out to the world. one skeleton being advanced nerve-gas agents where transported by NATO trough Turkish air bases on their way to Afghanistan during the OEF campaign. or the special U.S rendition flights that made a stop there into one of the torture camps run on Turkey's air bases. or how NATO assisted in intelligence against the PKK while that subject is "touchy" in Europe.
So no, Turkey is on its own. and thats propably the only reason Erdy has not committed to a full assault yet while Turkish forces are ready to do so for about 3 weeks already. NATO's "rapid response force" A.K.A "Paper Tiger" is not even being given stand-by orders, nobody knows of any preparations. i talked to guys in France, Germany, Spain and the Czech Republic for weeks. its just quiet, business as usual for NATO forces and nothing is happening for Turkey-wise. just the usual logistical routes going to places like Latvia and Poland, and NATO's standard exercise grounds and thats it.
