Turkey closes the bosphorus to Russia

Postby Maximus » Tue Dec 01, 2015 6:13 pm

According to eye witnesses, dozens of Russian warships are in the area waiting for permission to cross the maritime border.

It is worthy to note that Ankara has no right to close the Straits unilaterally, with the exception for a military situation. This action is clear. It is to make Russia's campaigns in Syria much more difficult. Closing the straights raises eyebrows even further that turkey is supporting and protecting terrorist operating in Syria.

I don't think that Russia will accept being contained like that. Turkey is putting itself directly in Russia's firing line by doing this.

It's outrageous that Turkey was given those administrative rights in the first place, went on to abuse them, even siding with the Germans in WWII and getting caught out - and now this! :roll:

- Russia has unfinished business with Turkey over that region, so perhaps this will pave the way to everlasting peace

Anyway, hope those people are OK in Constantinople, as Turkish life continues there:

An explosion has hit an overpass near a metro station at Bayrampaşa in Istanbul, local media report. At least one person killed and several people injured.

I don't think so!

Just a few decades ago, Churchill said, "istanbul" can be written in brackets, after Constantinople, for stupid people! :D
I guess he had you in mind.

"I do not consider that names that have been familiar for generations in England should be altered to study the whims of foreigners living in those parts. Where the name has no particular significance the local custom should be followed. However, Constantinople should never be abandoned, though for stupid people Istanbul may be written in brackets after it".

The name of the city persisted as Constantinople or Konstantinniye until the 1900s you goofy uneducated idiot. it was only changed after the fall of the Ottoman Empire.

BTW - Churchill wrote the above to his Foreign Office, 23rd April 1945

"Constantinople should never be abandoned, though for stupid people Istanbul may be written in brackets after it".

:lol:

I think Churchill knew we would one day get Constantinople back. No need to abandon the name - "NEVER" ! 8)

when will this greak island goufi realise that nobody fights anybody for somebody else. but that russia can attack terggy in any way is laughable. but if they should they should than gift greece what they supposedly won is just beyond belief. tsipras went to russia for a couple of billion euros help when greak people are hungry and came back with empty hands. russia will help you indeed.
