United States sanctions Turkey over Russian missiles S-400

The US State Department announced on Monday that it imposes sanction to Turkey for the purchase and testing of Russian S-400 missiles. The sanctions are imposed under CAATSA 231. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a tweet that Turkey’s S-400 system risks U.S. military technology and personnel and helps fuel Russia’s defense sector.

I found it hilarious when Alexander mentioned the possibility of the US sanctioning Turkey for the heroin trade. This comes from Afghanistan mainly and the US military and the CIA are hip deep in this trade. First the US would have to clean their own house which we know will not happen. I could just see Turkey exposing the American hand in the heroin trade in a tit for tat retaliation. That’s a pipe dream…. LOL

Where have the Kosovar gangs gone? They’ve been neck deep in the EU’s heroin distribution. I’ve always wondered if the Afghan Connection is using them with a nod (or more) from Langley or Foggy Bottom itself.

“purchase of the S-400 system would endanger the security of U.S. military technology and personnel “. In all my reading on this DEFENSIVE system i have found it is very accurate and USA cannot counter it, so of course no-one is allowed it.
 Exactly how it endangers anyone is something dreamed up in hollyweird.
 Maybe Turkey should do as pompusarse says, quit the s-400 and invest in the s-500 system.

Right or wrong, I’ll bet Erdogan is convinced the attempted coup against him was hatched in Washington. Under those conditions, his behavior is perfectly predictable, even the unpredictable aspects of it.

Turkey is NATO’s persona non grata except that NATO will never let it go because it controls access to the Black Sea, which NATO has been desperate to turn into a NATO Lake. You might even go so far as to call NATO a league of desperados, in the classic sense.

Merriam Webster” Definition of desperado
a bold or violent criminal
especially a bandit of the western U.S. in the 19th century

Turkey is, in fact, very welcome in NATO. By condemning Erdogan’s aggression verbally but not taking meaningful actions, the other NATO members gain a seeming of deniability when Turkey does their dirty work for them.

There are plenty of reasons to sanction Erdogan’s Turkey, but this isn’t really one of them.
