    I hope that US allies are able to get a good look at these, copy the software, and reverse engineer them….. If not, WHY, WHY, WHY….. is Turkey still in NATO.

      My dear Frank, are you aware, that USA refused to supply its trustworthy and faithful ally with necessary air defence systems for TEN years, despite repeated demands. Openly supported the two arch enemies of Turkey, two terrorist organizations, Fethullah and PKK (YPG) instead? Is this the appropriate behaviour and goodwill for NATO alliance ?

        For the last 10 years at least since the Mavi Marmara incident, Turkey has shown that it is NOT a trustworthy and faithful ally, at all.

        My dear Peaceful, are you aware the way to secure bounty from US is not by threats and “demands!”

        And in a separate message to Turkey’s “trustworthy and faithful ally”(!!) dictator: it also helps NOT to imagine yourself, ‘Sir’ Erdogan, as the Second Coming of Attaturk, this time in Islamic garb!

    Clearly Islamist Ottomoron Turkey has switched sides and needs to be >ceremoniously< kicked OUT of NATO.

    Israel will take Turkey's place in NATO.

    Can Turkey menace America by Russian S-400 Missile System. America is afraid about Turkey to deal for buying Russian S-400 defence missile system. Because if Turkey admits the S-400 missile system into own air defence they will be more strong. So America faces difficulties to control the establishment of Turkey government. America is afraid of someone who grabbed power. That’s why the U.S put sanctions on those countries that they work hard to respond against America

    Can Turkey menace America by Russian S-400 Missile System

    The U.S will anger on Turkey achievement. America already tried to cancel the deal between Russia and Turkey. That’s why they warned to Turkey if Erdogan going to buying S-400 air defence missile system, So they should be ready to face the U.S sanctions. At the response, Tayyab Erdogan said “Turkey no setback in the deal with Russia and if America doing some aggression. The Turkish government will retaliate against the U.S sanctions”

      All weapon systems can be defeated. The S-400 is no different. Turkey doesn’t have a ‘government’ – it has a dictator. He is both cunning, and stupid. Its the latter that will be his undoing. Trump will sort him out.

    There should be Russian and Iranian S300, S400 Buk, Pantsir systems all over the upper Middle East — Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan.

    The lopsided balance of power that led to the destruction of Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria should not be allowed to stand ever again.

    You will soon see that U.S. can defeat S-400 as well as S-300 and the coming S-500. You do not know radar systems or you would know this already. The reason you have not seen this yet is because the U.S. wants the buyers of these Russian systems to feel safe and protected. Down the road you will see.

    Trump has erdogan’s measure. He is just another tyrant to deal with. Trump is sweeping all before him. He is getting stronger, not weaker. You can see the pain in the comments here of enemies in that all they have, is stupid comments based upon wishful thinking. Saddam V2

    I think that we can negotiate with the Russians! Let them have “Turkey” at a price. The price will be determine by the intelligence community. I believe since Erdogan took over that Turkey has changed to the worst. This guy reminds me of Muammar AlQaddafi.

      Because Turkey is an ally of Russia and has junior membership in the SCO. The bizarre part of this is that the NATO countries know this but are just hoping that an earthquake will happen in Turkey to wipe out Erdogan and his party.

    The S-400 is probably a fairly competent weapons system but so far as I can tell it isn’t really battle-tested so we really don’t know for sure.

    The Russian government has a tendency to over-state the operational capability of their equipment.
