Deploy S-400 air defense systems in Libya: Turkish media suggest how to respect the United States

15

In the near future we should expect a new round of confrontation in the Libyan conflict. Moscow and Ankara will definitely not sit down again at the negotiating table until, with the current balance of power, the superiority of one of the parties is demonstrated. The course of the upcoming battles and their result should determine the master of the situation.


This opinion was voiced by the Turkish publication Daily Sabah, which believes that one of the “trump cards” of Ankara in this situation will be the S-400 anti-aircraft system, previously supplied by Moscow. Moreover, there is an excellent reason for their transfer to Libya: the United States made it clear that they would not tolerate their exploitation in the Turkish armed forces. In this connection, it was even proposed to buy back air defense systems.

Missiles became an obstacle in relations between the two countries [Turkey and the USA], and no significant progress was made in this regard

- notes Daily Sabah.

At the same time, Ankara seeks to maintain a balance between Moscow and Washington, preferring not to risk its relations with either side. Under these conditions, one of the most acceptable scenarios that can be adopted by all three countries is the deployment of the S-400 system in Libya after coordination with the Kremlin and the White House. If this proposal is implemented, the United States will be respected and Russia will not be upset.

    Deploy S-400 air defense systems in Libya: Turkish media suggest how to respect the United States
    Rave. The liberal media and the Sultan are very far away. Erdogan, on which the US organized an assassination attempt. fool There is no super weapon capable of winning a war in an instant. There is only the best weapon. S-400 in Turkey is intended for completely different purposes.

      If a bodyguard shoots him in the back, I can’t imagine how the S-400 will help

      This is a very risky proposal - this system will be destroyed immediately after unloading, without allowing deployment. And huge money, even for Turkey, will burn in the flame of this strange war.
      It is unlikely that Erdogan will decide on this. These complexes were acquired for completely different purposes.

    Nonsense! With the same success, they can be relocated to the Turkish part of Cyprus, but the Turks bought them for "internal self-defense" —that is, if again someone on f16 wants to remove the epogad from the palace. And the patriots naturally don’t work in their f16!

    Our S-400s will not leave anywhere in Turkey in the foreseeable future. Erdogan needs systems such as “closest ally” defense against aircraft

      In Libya, they can be checked in the case and returned back.

        At the same time, transferring not all complexes, but, for example, a pair of PUs. Take a picture of them and tell the Americans - they are all there, however.

          From a pair of PUs, there’s no sense, but it's really possible to lose them ...

          You may not even lose, but "lose" for reasons "independent" of Turkey to the delight of the states.

          Yes, all this nonsense! It's not where they are located. All these crazy arguments that the S-400 in Turkey will supposedly be able to evaluate the F-35's "invisibility" parameters are nothing more than a "smoke screen" that hides the true goal - ousting a competitor (Russia) from the global arms market! And no more! And WHERE the Turks will put them there: in Turkey, in Libya, and even in Antarctica - it has absolutely NO value!

      That's right, you need air defense not related to NATO. Diversification however.

    The situation is something like this ...

    Ankara seeks to maintain a balance between Moscow and Washington, preferring not to risk its relations on either side
    Maybe it seeks, but according to the statements of Erdogan in the Cathedral of St. This is completely invisible to Sofia, but the opposite is observed - for the sake of its well-being, the authorities are going to confront the Orthodox world. So with the S-400 it will proceed on the basis of personal considerations and it does not matter what is written in the Turkish media. In Libya, the systems really have nothing to do, because missing others.

    But don’t it seem to you that this is a multi-entry route for the USA and Ankara so that the USA does not directly receive the S-400

    Crap. I am convinced that the complexes are tied to the coordinates of the primary deployment, and will not work in other places without reflashing. Otherwise, such a dangerous and perfect weapon will go from hand to hand, and, in principle, may be in the hands of a rabid enemy.
