    Islamofascist Turkey is trying to repeat their Genocide of the Armenian people with the Kurds.

    NATO must kick Islamofascist Turkey OUT and knock out Er-DOG-ans military.

      Turkey should have been booted out the moment Turkey joined the SCO, the Shanghai Co-operation Organisation which is the Russo-Sino answer to NATO. The neo-con Bush and then the Islamic globalist Hussein Obama did nothing to stop Turkey’s rush to tyranny. Erdogan is foolish. Had he read European history he would know how Bismarck showed that a country that has conflicting secret alliances runs a high risk of being nullified when wars start and treaties are invoked.

    It’s hard to keep up with Realm speed to come up with new phones. Yet, today is a considerable announcement, since this is the first real flagship of the company – Real X2 Pro. We were at a launch event, and we had to spend a few moments with the new Pro and Noon Pro, which has been officially several weeks.

    This sounds like something Russia would say for propaganda purposes whether or not it were true. Surely it would boost morale back in the fatherland, and help sell some Su-35’s.

    Therefore until there is concrete proof, or an admission by Turkey you should ignore it.

      I agree–pullout of troops from Syria was an attempt to draw Turkey and Syria/Russia and Iran into a conflict.
      However, Trump should have advised the Russians in advance so they could moved their troops–secured allegiance from the Kurds and at the same time protected the Kurds. If Trump took that approach he might have received a quid pro quo from the Russians

    Trump seems very wise in retrospect, putin is in a far better position to mediate this one, as he has the cooperation of the damascus regime.

    In “thwarting” the Turkish air attack, what actions did the Russians take? Did they attack the Turkish craft or simply frighten them off?
