A US senate majority blocks F-35 stealth planes to Turkey
A the last minute, by a large majority of 85 to 10, the US Senate blocked the sale of the advanced US F-35 stealth planes to Turkey until a detailed plan is presented to prove that Ankara would not have access to US technology for its home manufacture of components. This was one of Turkey’s conditions for purchasing 100 F-35 planes in a $10bn deal. First deliveries were due on June 21. A compelling argument against the sale was Turkey’s decision to buy sophisticated Russian S-400 air defense missile systems.

freakin sweet !!! now block all arms to that terrorist state including saudi
Start with Israel. Number 1
Israel already has the F-35, moose-slime, and they will take out Istanbul, Baghdad and Tehran, if that becomes necessary!
Try and see what happens. Beware, fighting Turks will be much different than fighting unarmed PA.
You can not soar with the eagles if you are walking Turkey
your funny it took almost a year to beat the kurds the turks are cowards
Your name. LOL!!!!!
Israel has never ever fought with a real army. So i don’t think you dare to have a chance against TA.
I suppose Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran and Jordan would beg to differ. But I suppose it’s easier to use sarcasm than focus on the facts.
Hahaha too late numb nuts!! You’re going down the toilet and no one will miss you! FLUSH!!!!!
start with your pig mommy
A smart decision has come out of Congress. Perhaps too much to expect more but worthwhile to hope for.
With Erdogan as leader, Turkey is not any moore a reliable ally.
Who is reliable? USA? Don’t think so.
Yes! Trump has PROVEN himself as incredibly reliable. No more obummer back flips, treason and appeasement (but an idiot like you cant bring yourself ever to admit it; do you even know what day it is?)
trump and bibi piss in muslim scum pig mouths
turkey are monkeys and stink
all muslim maggots cannot even start a fire without the normal people of the world helping those ignorant pedophile muslim crap ,interbreed dirty flys
Now Kick the Islamist Erdogan dictatorship OUT of NATO.
Nato needs Turkey, not Turkey
bye bye HER DOG NOW YOU SHOULD BE KICKED OF NATO
Why would they want to sell to Erdogan? He is a enemy of the West and free people everywhere. Turkey should be behind Iran for weapons sale;
He thinks he is the coolest guy in the room. Think again the monkey, as you are nobody without Western technology.
Ever heard of Su planes?
Congress would rather gift Israel with a aircraft carrier for the Sea of Galilee, than sell F-35s to us?
Have we defended the whole North Atlantic Ocean for you guys since 1952 for free?
Your exremist leader changed teams and unfortunately destroyed your democracy. You get what you voted for. Just like Hitler was elected to power so was edrogan. He is an evil monster. For now they do not belong in NATO and should only be allowed back in once a sane leader is elected.
You people haven’t done anything of the kind. And who cares now anyway with an aggressive muslim dictator in charge of Turkey? Just go to hell. Enjoy your ‘beloved’ leader!! hahaha
Many of the comments are so irrational and uninformed that I wonder if the writers are drunk. So long as Turkey buys weapons systems from Russia, Turkey will not get sophisticated US weapons systems. If you cooperate with the enemy, you are unreliable. Turkey is unreliable insofar as its NATO obligations. It may as well withdraw from NATO and go it alone. Turkey has been an ally, but choosing to go it alone is its choice. Erdogan is like Trump – irrational, foolishly nationalist, a big mouth, consumed with being a macho man, and not a leader who benefits his country.
Erdogan is NOT like Trump at all. According to you, others here are “irrational and uninformed”. You can talk hot shot! The attempted comparison is just plain stupid.
How dare you compare Erdogan with Trump!! I think you are both “irrational and uninformed”.
