    Turkey is pounding the Syria/Russo army with drone attacks. 700 killed and 50 tanks destroyed. This in response to the Russians bombing a Turkish convoy and killing 33 Turks.
    Putin better back down, he's getting sucked into a morass that will destroy him and his very shaky economy. Remember Russia has to send supplies right through Istanbul. Russia is a paper bear. Make that tissue paper bear.

    So far, President Trump has done a good job of keeping us out of another pointless Middle East Forever War For Corporate Profits.

    If Russia cares about the Middle East that much, let them deal with it.


    Meanwhile, vile globalists Nikki Haley, John "I was too scared to serve in Vietnam" Bolton and Mike "I love NSA spying on the American people" Pompeo are sulking. Their owners won't pay them for no results, and Bolton and Haley don't even have a job in the administration anymore. :animlol:

    Turkey's Erdogan has really screwed himself too. He had vision's of the Great Ottoman Empire coming together under Putin's patronage and nobody told him Putin doesn't give a damn about the Turks and doesn't have any money to help them either. Its America and Europe that hold the keys to Turkey's economic future and military security.

    So he thumbs his nose at America and Loses his F-35s, makes himself a Dictator, Turkey is once again an economic basket case, and his Syrian adventure is going to bring him down. He has alienated the west and scared away the Arab money. This little war of his isn't going to end well for either, especially Erdogan.

    I have an article somewhere that the Turks feared Russia was going to launch strikes against their capital (Ankara) after they downed the Russian aircraft a few years ago.

    Just last week Russia sent bombers over the Bosporus Straits and immediately after the Russian aircraft was downed the Russian ships (or some of them) went thru the Bosporus Straits with the ships guns uncovered (not sure if they were mannned) in a show of displeasure.

    Turkey risks losing control of the strait and Constantinople....

    Jesus, what a cluster. I'm SOOO glad President Trump hasn't gotten us involved in this nonsense. Re-electing him is an absolute must.

    As a member of NATO, Turkey has some level of security from an actual Russian attempt to destroy them or invade. Those pesky treaties, ratified by congress, do require the US to take action as a NATO member if it comes to that.

    With the Soviet Union long gone, NATO should be dissolved.

    It's only purpose now is to serve as muscle for the globalists, so they can impose their will on anyone they want.

    Disband NATO.

    Trump has escalated things since he’s been in office.

    Look at the wargames on Russia’s Borders.

    We are supporting the Taliban and ISIS - we always were...

    You *entirely* miss the point.

    Not at all surprised, really.

    This nation is rife with poor understanding which is why we are where we are with Globalism drowning us all.

    Do you really want to fight a Peer Military closer to THEIR border?

    Do you REALLY think we win that?

    You cross into Russia with any degree of success and battlefield nukes will be used on advancing forces - it’s part of their Nuclear Doctrine.

    Fire anything into their territory they target the source(s).

    If there is any degree of success ALL of the AEGIS Ashore and AEGIS ships get hit.

    And China has their back.

    There’s no win invading Russia.
