          I’m sure that you understand what MIKHAN specifically wrote about - not about the planes, but about the militants who were warmed and treated in Turkey during the campaign in Chechnya.

      Everything went across the Turkish border: refugees for Europe, clandestine oil, the supply of terrorists, and so on, and suddenly Russia covers all this "noble" economy with a copper basin. Oi Oi Oi. Now, the Turks also picked up the song: "Come NATO, strangle Russia" .............

    The raven will not peck out the crow, Erdogan, and so the easy-going political girl who was kicked in the ass, is afraid that they will take control of the Syrian-Turkish border from here and all his cries about violations

    And the security of Turkey is to allow ISIS militants. Walk quietly into Turkey and sit there quietly, lick your wounds and move on to Russia and Europe. So.

      Well, Turkey has long been "hospitable" to different trash: there was a time, and militants sat out from the North Caucasus! As well as in Georgia!

    Like, you can. They seem to have a business in logistics of militants there.

    Russia, in turn, must declare its unwavering commitment to the security of Cuba and deploy its base there.

    European politicians are already starting to speak against the Russian operation in Syria (to destroy ISIS terrorists), because we all see now that world oil prices are rising and for Europe (with the destruction of ISIS) the streams of cheap oil traffic from ISIS will stop (only business is nothing personal).

    Did they even attack? From the aggressors! Probably a gas pipe on the head gave. Or instead of nuclear power plants they want to drop an atomic bomb. Yak in Horoshima. It is necessary to quickly drag American nuclear weapons into turretchina. And what? But what if?

    Yes, there will be nothing, everything is from the helplessness and anger of the Yankees, and the "invincibility" of the Turks and NATO, once again, a shock of air let them fly along the borders, and Russian air defense systems and electronic warfare and Iran and Iranians will provide control of Syria, the trap for their ISIS seems to be shut ...

    Judging by this phrase, in that Caudle there was only one more or less sane.

    I recall now the song of V. Vysotsky about the rut. Russia has its own track and no one will force us to turn off from it.

    I can’t understand what this miscarriage of the Ottoman empire is saying. They want wars? So we fought with them more than once (forgot?) And if this time we start then Turkey will have only memories. For all its time, Turkey has done so much that deserves a place in the dump history and this war will be the last for her and Nato will not help.

    Strange at THESE concept of "struggle". Passing ISIS fleeing through their territory and transporting them to safe places, treating wounded bandits in their military hospitals, supplying weapons to these gangs (albeit unofficially) - is this called a fight? SCOUNDRELLS! negative
