Russia is up to its old tricks again by supplying an aid defense missile system to Turkey. This move proves that Russia cannot be trusted as an ally or as a nation. All this move by Russia is designed to do is to cause a division between Turkey and the United States. Turkey is expected to receive more shipments as time moves on. It is reported that Turkey will get 120 anti-aircraft missiles. Their people will also be trained by the Russians on how to use their new equipment.
Turkey and Russia have been building a secret relationship behind the back of the United States. Both Turkey and Russia say they are for the Americans, and then they secretly develop a questionable relationship that is nothing more than a way to get back to America. This move by Turkey and Russia is a slap in the face to the United States because Turkey and America have had differences over issues such as Syria. It seems that Turkey is a nation that wants to join forces with less honorable nations in an attempt to find people that agree with them.
One issue that people are fearful of is that the system provided to Turkey by the Russians can be used to acquire secrets about modern aircraft. This is a move by Russia to try to tip the technological scale in their favor. Thus putting them at the top of the defense board technologically speaking. Russia and the United States have played the cat and mouse game for decades. The only thing is that the United States has always honored their treaties and deals with Russia while they have secretly done things that violated any and all treaty agreements.
The United States will respond. President Trump is not a person to let these kinds of actions go unnoticed for very long. The technology used to construct the F-35 jet is long sought after by rogue nations such as Russia and China. There is not an aircraft out there that can match its defense and offensive capabilities. The plan is basically invisible to modern-day technology.
One way that Turkey will pay for its treacherous deeds is that the F-35 will not be delivered to them by the United States if they take possession of the S-400 missile system. All the Turkish people that have been working to learn the aircraft will simply be sent home with their tails between their legs.
It is also expected for new sanctions to be placed on Turkey regarding their actions as well. Turkey has basically bought weapons from Russia. Russia is listed on a blacklist that lists firms where it is illegal to buy weapons from. By Turkey buying the weapons they have opened themselves up to crimes punishable through the Countering America’s Adversaries through Sanctions Act. Sanctions will definitely set Turkey back financially for years to come.
Turkey has a decision to make. Continue down the path of illegal activity or face brutal consequences. They will lose out on over 100 states of the art aircraft from the United States and face sanctions if they continue to accept the Russian missile system. Russian has been trying to acquire territory that it lost when communism collapsed their nation years ago. This is just another attempt by Russia to put their influence back into the areas of the world that it once held as part of the U.S.S.R.
There is nothing good about Russia selling weapons to nations that have not been loyal allies to NATO or the United States. There is more going on with Russia’s sale than most people realize. However, President Trump and the White House Staff are the best groups of people that America has seen working to protect this country in many years. All Americans can rest knowing that the president seeks the best for the people of the country. No other president has ever given on themselves so selflessly for the American people than President Trump has. He has set a new standard of serving in the White House that those that come after him will have to live up to.
