Maybe Turkey can develop it’s own rubber catapult to launch her own “5th generation” fighter jet model presented at the Paris air show. It looked just like the F-35. Funny that! :D

Couldn’t happened to a nicer guy, but hey, as long as Trump still likes Erdogan, or so Erdogan thought, who cares, right! :D

The days of Turkey's NATO membership can not possibly stretch more than 5 years.
Sounds far fetched but I really believe that Tirkey will come out of NATO, perhaps it would form a new Alliance , maybe something like Pan Islamic Strategic States? PISS , for short :lol:

The Turks are now slamming the decision,

They want the US to rectify this mistake that will cause irreparable wounds in US - Turkey relations.

The US gave ample warning of the measures they would have to take but the Turks were unwilling to resolve the differences required under the spirit of the nato alliance. They went ahead regardless.

You don’t buy weapons from nato’s adversaries and offer to help them produce their weapons too. You just don’t do that..... :roll:

Many political commentators are saying that turkey is not a trusted ally and never was.

terggy may well decide to come out of nato but nato cannot throw terggy out. it will be a blessing in desguise not to be servants of the yanks for a while. the terggs want to be big for a while see how it pans out. what have they got to lose. hriiks on one side and sgeepriots on the other, assad on the other and iraq too. which one of these can threaten terggy in any meaningful way.

we are living in interesting times. arsenic laced kababs all round on the house even if you are based uranus. it will be delivered.

Erdogan is not good for Turkey within the wider sphere of International partners, in a world where Turks looks West (and East) for their growth. But i am hopeful, because he may change his intentions, again, he may still find his Legacy in serving the Turkish People, as a Statesman held in high esteem by the rest of the world, rather than for "Turkishness" alone.

...revenge is a dish best served cold. At this point i can't help thinking about the Russian fighter jet Turkey shot down not so long ago.

Many factors may collide, both Iran and Iraq also have bones to pick with Erdogan. So too, Syria, and the Kurds.

...meanwhile, he prepares himself for war, with all this disruption, having sacked most of the leading officers in his armed forces, having crushed a Free Press, having taken the economy to control directly, it seems it is now the time he'll bite the hand (of his debtors) that feeds him.

In effect, if he turns to Russia for his defence, he is merely changing 'masters'. Although, with a small change of intentions, these masters may unite, themselves. It is not far-fetched, given Turkey's claims for the entire Eastern Mediterranean, and, against Cyprus; clearly in this case, Russia and the West (along with the entire world) are able to agree, and to act together against the threat from these hostilities.

Where would Erdogan be then?
