Vietnamese Soha: Turkey's purchase of the S-400 air defense system from Russia indirectly suggests that Erdogan does not trust the Americans

22

The Vietnamese edition of Soha comes out with a publication dedicated to the S-400 Triumph air defense missile system acquired by Turkey from Russia.


It should be noted that the other day there was information from the Western media, where it was stated that "Ankara is ready to send a signal to Washington by sending Russian instructors home to help maintain the complexes." At the same time, the Western press did not say whether Turkey would "send home" Russian instructors in connection with the expiration of the contract period or before its expiration. There is no official confirmation of this information yet.

The Vietnamese author, meanwhile, writes that because of the S-400, relations between the United States and Turkey have come to "the worst situation in recent years."

From the material:

The United States has repeatedly warned Erdogan that it will impose sanctions if Ankara acquires the S-400 air defense system from Russia. But the Turkish president ignored these warnings. Many in Turkey today are wondering why the authorities bought the S-400 at all, if this purchase causes such difficulties in relations with Washington? But, apparently, there were good reasons for that. Yet the reason Erdogan took such a risk with Washington remains a mystery.

True, in the same material, the Vietnamese author points out the following:

The purchase of anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia indirectly suggests that Erdogan does not trust the unified NATO air defense system, and does not trust the Americans either.

At the same time, on the pages of the Soha resource, it is added that Erdogan is also trying to bargain, assuming that "for the sake of alliance with Turkey, the US authorities will still make certain concessions."

From the material:

The United States will probably not be able to ignore Ankara's interests, since Turkey has the second largest army in NATO and an advantageous geostrategic position.

The article notes that Erdogan, by his decision to buy the S-400 from Russia, "could have made Washington lose its temper - in retaliation for the American support for the coup attempt in 2016."

        And Erdogan (in my opinion) does not trust anyone at all. And we shouldn't trust him.

    And what, there are imbeciles who believe mattress makers? In my opinion, even the most stupid ones have already realized that mattress makers have only two categories of servants, which are still needed, and which are no longer needed. Even their faithful slaves, the Britons, are only a kind of servants, a little more privileged.

        I don't think they believe either. But their problem is that their opinion, like Banderland, is not interesting in the Washington Reich Chancellery, even in general terms))) their business is to bark, and if God forbid, if they happen to die for Matrasoland))

    In politics, it is generally stupid to trust someone! History has proved it more than once. I don't think Erdogan trusts the United States. He depends on them, this one yes! Their economy is dependent. Here is the Sultan and bows.

    This is most likely one of the main reasons. If Erdogash would be friends with merikatosia, he would not take the 400s.

      Well, Erdogan has been eating a mattress for a long time already, even when they did not give him Gulen. Apparently, he just got to wait)))

    Erdogan bought the S-400 also because he has a small village of Akkuyu in the Mersin province. And right next to it there is a nuclear power plant. The area where one S-400 battalion is located is located there. Where is the second - I do not know. No matter how we treat Erdogan, he chose the most reliable of all available to protect the nuclear power plant in accordance with IAEA standards. And then - the Akkuyu NPP is being built according to the "build-own-control" principle, not by anyone, but by Rosatom. And what will guard this institution is also decided by Rosatom. It is he who must fulfill the standards and requirements of the IAEA for the physical protection of the facility.

    And why should they cope with him if he took the Patriots? They do not touch the loyal ones. Right now they will take revenge, maybe they will impose sanctions.

    Remained on this world are those countries. ludi on the power that the deep power of the United States believes? They have killed many of their servants in "friendly" countries in the last 70 years. It is enough to look at the fate of Iran and Reze Pahlavia, he was their man. When he served, they simply removed and sent Iran to ruin. For the servants of the United States, it is worse if you eat the US when the US is friendly to them. Deep Power USA abominations snakeman is not ice, but dolls similar to ice. They do not make friends with ice, but use ice as with objects, while starting to target reptilian 1 and 0, they are and are not favored for their strategic interests. There are no Luda emotions here. Sultan Erdogan is all but not stupid, he takes advantage of Turkey's geostrategic position and wants to make the state strong. He applies their misli logic to the United States and uses the United States as much as possible, and there are many goats, and as Turkey will strengthen as a state, there will be more goats. In order to work with the United States, it is necessary to analyze well and constantly what is their strategically interest, while taking into account that they DO NOT NEED STRONGLY KEEPING, EVEN NO SERVICE AND ALLIES, THEY WANT FULL CONTROL OVER EVERYTHING. So the sultan is in an UNFAVORABLE POSITION, HE MAKES A STRONG TURKEY, AND THIS IS THE FIRST EVIL FOR DEEP POWER OF THE USA.
    USA WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD NO LIVING IN THE WORLD, AND FOR THIS IT NEEDS CHAOS AND INSTABILITY.
    At the same time, the deep power is only the top of the ice coast, behind the dolls on the surface, the reptilian is still a lot worse.
    The sultan is clever, once Rusia saved him and his family, he will no longer allow himself to get into such a position. In fact, he does not have much choice, and he does not want to be a victim.

        If someone in Russia or China thinks that he can avoid an ATTACK AND AGGRESSION ON THE SIDE OF THE US, he is decently naive or stupid, all the same, how many concessions will be made if you eat them with food. Normalno If you allow it, and one of the ancestors taught you even if you have to die, then you do not have to kneel, and the vipers are non-extinguished, so there is no tail to cut off the head.

    "Yet the reason why Erdogan took such a risk with Washington remains a mystery."
    Is it impossible to assume that Erdogan just wants to get normal air defense, and not "patriots" who have proven their uselessness? Not to mention the fact that with much better performance, the S-400 is much cheaper than the worthless "Patriot".
