@bbush America sucks.

I'm shocked to read this! I thought having your boss Putin's pet Trump in charge of the USA you'd see America as your #2. Or are you saying America sucks now, but won't after Trump's been inaugurated.

Nah the Turks would mistake them for ducks on Ilkla Moor and shoot them down. Only the Russians and the Italians make planes that fly backwards...

If they're not careful, it can become their Vietnam

The Syrian Kurds know their true ally the NATO coalition over Turkey

Wonder if Turkey would ask Russia to help them against the Syrian Kurds

If Russia wants Turkey they are more than welcome to have it! They are a terrorist state run by an insane dictator. They were only ever allowed in NATO because the THOR IRBM couldn't reach Moscow from West Germany.

Good riddance to bad rubbish. Sooner or later the US will have to attack Turkey. Because unlike Iraq, Libya, and Syria, Turkey is actually a threat to US security.

The US needs Turkey to keep control of Iraq.

But I agree under their tinpot dictator they should be left to the world's most corrupted man, and cartoon villain, Czar Don Putin.

No, no, noooo! Since NATO is the most powerful and well-armed criminal gang in the world, Turkey rightfully belongs there! Erdogan's (Butcher of Kurds) place right along such great killers as Clinton (Butcher of Yugoslavia), Bush (Butcher of Iraq) and Obama (Butcher of Libya).

Can you provide a link on such marvels of machinery?

You remind me of Obama (and that is not a compliment), the same erratic logic pattern. One day Obama calls Russia local power with its economt in tatters, the next day he paints it as a high-tech superpower that derailed the whole US election process. You demonstrate the same logic (or lack of any).

Where has he painted it as high-tech? Seems like that's your characterization, not his.

Unless you are trying to say that a country needs to be high-tech to be able to hack. That's pretty ridiculous. All you need to for that is a computer and a hacker. Hardly high-tech.

So, one hacker with a computer deprived Clinton of her victory? Wow, I never thought that the US is such a backward country with so primitive computer security.

I don't know, do you?

Seems you just want to paint Obama's comments in various extremes as an appeal to the absurd, in an attempt to deflect from the content of what he's saying.

Sounds pretty partisan to me.

I don't have to. He did it pretty well himself.

I did not follow the US election much, I did not support any of candidates.

Shall we return to the subject of the thread (Turkey)?
