As I’ve said, the best we can hope from Donald Trump is that he does fewer bad things. He isn’t going to do any good things, but he maybe has the option to not do every bad thing.
Not sanctioning Turkey is a good example of “doing good by doing nothing.”
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Saturday that President Trump told him he would not impose U.S. sanctions on Turkey following the country’s move to purchase a Russian missile defense system.
Erdoğan told reporters at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Japan that he had received personal reassurances from Trump that sanctions against Turkey would not be passed, stating that “no such thing will happen,” according to CNN.
“For now it does not look like that. It is out of question between two strategic partners. I think it should not happen,” Erdoğan said when asked about the possibility of sanctions.
Turkey maintained that the S-400 would not be integrated into NATO systems and said it would not pose a threat to the alliance.
His comments come after the Trump administration raised the stakes on Turkey over its plan to buy a Russian missile defense system from Russia, threatening new repercussions that put billions of dollars on the line for both countries if Ankara agreed to go through with the deal.
The Pentagon announced earlier this month that it would pull Turkey from participation in building and maintaining the F-35 Lightning II fighter, moving industrial operations to other countries, unless the country gave up its plans to purchase the Russian-made S-400 surface-to-air missile defense system.
U.S. officials had made clear that the Trump administration would not accept the sale of F-35s to a nation that purchased missile defense technology from Russia, warning of security concerns.
Turkey was a bad guy, but now they’re more of a good guy. They’re working with Russia against the US/Israel/Saudi-backed terrorists in Syria. And they probably wouldn’t allow the US to run ISIS terrorists through their country into Iran like they allowed them to do with Syria.
No one should ever trust Erdogan. But like most people in the world, he’s figured out that you can’t be allied with the US and hope to survive. An alliance with the US is a death trap, it’s a suicide rap, you gotta get out while you can, baby.
The US, under the control of Jews, is going to burn out as it attempts to burn down the rest of the enemies of the Jews.
Turkey is a very old civilization, and they are aligning with Russia. Japan is at least in the opening stages of aligning with China. Everyone is just trying to make their way to the exit as quickly as possible.
If/when Trump starts bombing Iran, that will be the end of the end. Virtually every country in the world will turn against us. We will still be the strongest military on earth, but that steam will quickly run out.
And in this, the American people may find a way to free themselves from the occupying force oppressing us.
