  1. Just the other day I read Turkey under pressure from the US and NATO scrapped the S400 deal. Erdogan must go through with the purchase if he is ever to release Turkey from the selfish influence of the West. I also heard the USA has almost, or has totally removed all troops and equipment from Incerlik airfield, redeployed to Jordan and, Afghanistan. On to Manbij.

  2. Putin is now in Ankara. Both leaders understand that a peace is better than war or sanctions. We had multiple wars with the Turks. But we are neighbors thru the Black sea. And we have to build the progress. Fortunately for Erdogan, Putin helped him many times and put him from the clouds to the reallity. I took part in welding 150 kms of the Turkish Stream during 2 years. Now the first atomic power station in Akkuyu is building. S-400? NATO is angry. Let it be. Nowadays more and more countries quit the annoying games of USA. We all wanna live in peace, make business, travel, make friends. We are tired of US NWO insane marazmatics.
