US urges Turkey to abandon Russian S-400 amid events in Idlib

US urges Turkey to abandon Russian S-400 amid events in Idlib

In the US, they commented on the situation in Syrian Idlib. At the same time, the comment eventually touched upon the issue of Turkey’s purchase of Russian Triumph S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.


Thus, Kay Bailey Hutchison, the United States Permanent Representative to NATO, stated that “in connection with what is happening in Idlib, Ankara, one should refuse to purchase and deploy Russian S-400 air defense systems.”

Hutchison:

I think Turkish President Recep Erdogan now understands who is a reliable partner for Turkey and who is not. They see what Russia is, what Russians are doing now (in Idlib). They attack the Turkish troops.

According to Hutchison, "this fact should be decisive in relations between Turkey and Russia."

Thus, it should be noted that in the USA they no longer hide their direct interest in pushing Turkey and Russia between their foreheads. It is extremely beneficial for the US that the conflict between the militants and the SAA develop into something more - with greater involvement of Ankara and Moscow.

Recall that earlier in the United States announced "full support for the actions of Turkey."

In a few days, a quadripartite meeting (Russia, Turkey, Germany and France) will be held on the issue of the Syrian province of Idlib.

      VO as always late, there in the idlib at least 33 Turks swayed, the Turks today can declare war on Syria.

      Yes, and Peskov, yesterday, disavowed the previously announced Erdogan meeting on March 5.
      So what about
      A four-day meeting will take place in a few days (Russia, Turkey, Germany and France)

        By the way, Turkey does not restrain any "millions" of refugees to the European Union no the sultan can tell these stories further.

    But Russia has not yet called on Russia to refuse to supply Turkey with these same S-400s (it’s hard to believe for some reason that it’s implanted into this complex), but at the same time also from oil and gas supplies, and from continuing the construction of Akkuyu? No, we are partners ...

      The Turks have so far received only one regiment set (2 divisions), the second batch is still in Russia. And of course, until the settlement of Turkish ambitions, there will be no supplies. As there are no Turkish tomatoes. But they began to buy more oil (it fell in price), and that’s good. We will have more money in the treasury, but if we refuse, they will buy from others.
      But if we block the straits ... then everything is possible.

    I don’t understand what is the point of risking so many things, in which Russia cooperates with Turkey, for the sake of a piece of land called Idlib, which Russia needs like a runny nose. You can lose everything, but what? What Assad will regain some Idlib?

    I explain that from a historical and ethnic perspective, Idlib for Turkey is about the same as Donbass for Russia.

      1. Terrorists from all over the CIS hang out on this patch of land, study at training camps and will probably someday return to their native countries with bad intentions.
      2. They are constantly shelling adjacent territories controlled by the official government, the Khmeimim airbase, and do not go to any negotiations on a cease-fire.
      3. Idlib - a large agricultural province, these lands will be very necessary for the restoration of Syria after the war.

      There are no terrorists in Donbass, and Russia did not send military convoys to Donbass and did not establish any observation posts. And if now we begin to satisfy the historical and ethnic ambitions of all states, then we will have to redraw half the world.

      ichudov, Hare to repeat hackneyed snot, these Goebbels propaganda about "we will lose everything and gain nothing" were thrown in thousands of copies to the population of the front-line regions of the Union. And yes, Idlib has nothing to do with Turkey, the Syrians lived there thousands of years before the Ottoman Empire appeared on the map. Everything is simpler, there is a process of taming the obstinate Erdogash, she will understand the reality and accept all the conditions of Russia, as it was dozens of times in the 300 history of Russian-Turkish relations.
      When the cannonade in Idlib calms down and the Turks count hundreds of their dead soldiers and private mercenaries, looking bitterly at the iron sky, thousands of curses rush towards Russia.
      Russia has become a stumbling block on the path of the Ottoman Empire, as it has risen more than once in the history of the two powers. But today, in its prime, its triumph and power over the World are not yet visible to the short-sighted dictators who have been blinded by thirst for profit and imperial ambitions, and therefore Erdogan still has hope that the West and NATO will help.
      However, this hope is rampant with every iron rain flying from the idyllic skies. And to admit that Russia brings this death for Turkish mercenaries in Idlib, it is equal to suicide for Erdogan, because why then did the Sultan personally start and conclude many joint projects with Moscow? Try now explain to the Turkish plebs, who will rise overnight and sweep away the treacherous power? Therefore, all the bitter defeats of Erdogan on the Idlib front, the sultan is forced to blame on the Syrian aircraft and blame all his dead on the Syrian army, but secret curses still rush to the North and fall along with the rains and morning cold on the streets of Moscow.
      What remains for Moscow to do?
      The Sultan is trying to take "the hostages" all the brightest hopes of the Kremlin for cooperation and for the fulfillment of all joint projects already implemented and only being implemented.
      The most important implemented is the two pipelines of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, and the current one is Akkuyu NPP. And this is not counting all the others, smaller, including the notorious Turkish tomatoes, dozens of Turkish construction companies in the Russian market, as well as 7-8 million Russian tourists annually. And therefore, the Sultan in the struggle for power is forced to lie to his own people, and Moscow is forced to remain silent and reluctantly kill Turkish janissaries.
      Another thing is Libya. There is no Moscow. There's a kind of civil revolution where the Americans have already gotten rid of and the whole West got messed up. And there is none other than the locals none of the "thieves and steep" of this world, because no one has yet canceled the power of Russian weapons.
      These weapons helped General Haftar overcome 85% of the territory of Libya, including all oil fields, and there was little left - the ports of transshipment of energy. They are now under the Turks, which means under the West. For Erdogan appeals to the USA, Germany and France with a request for support and help, but they cannot help. Erdogan, because of his limited nature, does not understand that Putin has bent the whole "civilized world" with his hypersonic weapons and Poseidon submarine drones, and therefore the West only squeals powerlessly.
      And what should Erdoогan do now? He really wants to block the Bosphorus, but it’s clear that there will be no sense because Iran is ready to help Russia and let ours into Syria through Iraq, and there in Iraq, American bases that seem to be allies of Turkey should help Erdogan, but they won’t help, because Iraq rebelled against American military bases and only with the motto “We are for peace”, they are still trying to hold on there, although they bomb American bases regularly.
      It is hard for Moscow to make deliveries to Syria through Iran and Iraq, if the Bosphorus is closed, and to beat the Turks in Syria, on which there were so many hopes too, and then there is only one way out. It is still possible to cover up the successes of Russia in Syria by the Syrian army, they will thus be covered up.
      But in Libya there are no obligations. There is no Russia, there is only PMCs. Besides different countries, guess which ones are left? Right. There are only Russian PMCs. And they do not obey Putin.
      And in the port of Tripoli, a Turkish ship with weapons was destroyed, at least 16 Turkish military and 100 mercenaries from Syria were killed in Tripoli. There is nothing to be done - Erdogan, well, he is such a man. I already forgot who saved his life during an attempted coup. And therefore, to influence Erdogan's worldview, his natural greed and recklessness, unfortunately, it turns out only this way.
      That's why in the near future we are waiting for the Libyan Express.
      How will it start?
      Maybe it’s very mean reports from Libya about the next victory of General Haftar, or maybe loud reports about the complete destruction of Libyan militants?
      The complete defeat of Erdogan’s ambitions in Libya could very well push the latter towards a reasonable and adequate dialogue on Syria, which the Sultan is still not going to.
      Only after accepting and realizing the inevitable defeat will the Sultan find the right words, as he had once found when he had to apologize to all of Russia for Oleg Peshkov.
      Moscow, as Russians are used to, will silently do its job. Spit on the Sultan with his hypertrophied EGO. Spit on Turkish subjects since Ostap Bender. I don’t give a damn - we just need Syria and Libya, and then Palestine with the ultimate sacred "assemblage point" - Jerusalem.
      Then the puzzle will develop, then the omnipotent petrodollar will stagger.
      For oil and the most important areas of its production, including Iraq and today occupied by the States of Saudi Arabia, will already be in the zone of influence of the Russian S-400 and S-500 with Russian combat calculations.
      And only in such a development of events, only when there will be a replacement of meanings and instead of the notion “oil for dollars” the whole world will accept the axiom - “oil for gold”, only then will Russia gain “true Truth and true Freedom”.
      Only then the whole World will believe the axiom that “Power is in Truth”, but the genius of Putin will be carefully and purposefully hidden behind this truth.
      And you can’t even imagine how I want it to be hidden, reliable and deep ... Because it is right, let these creatures be afraid.

The Syrian army, already small and weak, is now being destroyed to the delight of barmaley and Americans. How does this relate to your text singing “Putin's genius”?

          TatarinSSSR, and why not "millions"? The Turks took the joke of the great Suvorov seriously ("Why should their Basurman regret - write more"). The Syrians do not have as many people and technology as the Erdogachists fantasize. But the fact that over the past month several thousands of Babakhs have been disposed of, plus about 250 Turkish soldiers went to the guria - these are real facts, Turkish IVECO loaded with bodies back in January. The problem is that we are Soviet-conscious people - at the same time maximalists and all-outers, so either we are waiting for a deafening victory right now or we can not compare what happened a couple of years ago. And in 2015, let’s remind, Assad controlled only 12% of the SAR, I don’t mention Idlib and Aleppo at all, while now more than 80% of the country squeezed out the Idlib from the Barmaleans, and even the Umerikos, with our participation, squeezed out 6 military bases and a notable piece of the north of Syria .

      Stop suffering from infantilism and repeat the hackneyed mantra, in Syria there is a legitimate Government, and Assad is the legitimate president, which the UN recognizes. And yes, Assad already controls 80% of the country, releasing the rest is a matter of the near future, not paying attention to the squeals of the staff. They would have to save their asses in Iraq, otherwise the Iranians recently reduced the number of mattresses, and they regretted to reveal all the cards, although they were chasing the hegemon with rags all over Mesopotamialaughing.

    Even the most naive person cannot fail to understand that this is an American buzz about the S-400 for a reason, and even more so will not refuse them, because the Americans don’t even claim that the S-400 is worse than the Patriots, they simply say that it’s impossible for the Russian one that it is incompatible with NATO air defense (although the S-300s fit well), you can’t buy from Russia, but they don’t give a single reasonable argument

    And here are the berries of unfair competition in the technological field. The US government led the Turks into a war with the Syrians, promised help, and when it came to the conflict with the Russian troops located in Syria at the invitation of the local leadership, I won’t be surprised that they promised the Turks to “return” the Crimean peninsula to deploy their military bases there, since the Ukrainians, sorry, did not cope with the task. Along the way, all this will mean the breakdown of all economic ties between Turkey and Russia, the rejection of existing contracts, etc. Turkey, in a deep burnout, as in the XNUMXth century, carries out the will of others. Where is the sultan? Suddenly he became the “vizier” of “What-please” at the chairs of American old men?
