NATO warns Turkey it can’t count on support in a conflict with Russia as tensions escalate

European diplomats have warned the Turkish government that it cannot count on the NATO support should the conflict with Russia escalate into an armed conflict, according to German media.

Ankara has called for a joint ground operation in Syria with its international allies, insisting it is the only way to stop the country’s five-year war. Saudi Arabia has said it would be ready to take part in an international force to be deployed in Syria.


 

NATO is a paper tiger, a few bombing runs against Jihadis is about the peak of their European component nations willingness to fight.

Russia knows this, so does everybody else.

    Sure NATO is a paper tiger, but even if it wasn’t there would be plenty of reasons to not back turkey in an armed conflict. Turkey is not and never has been a reliable Ally, it is sliding into islamic statehood with the kleptocratic erdogan clan steering the camel train. I am not at all convinced the Russians have the wrong policy for this area, history will decide, but I think fatal errors were made dating back to the bush intervention.and a policy of containment and quarantine with all koranic countries including turkey,is the best course .

      And let the whole mess look good on the Ruskies.

      So, basically, Russia has now a green light to invade Turkey. As usual, all the American promises are worth nothing. Eastern Europe, South Vietnam, Iran, Lebanon’s Christians, Syrian Rebels, Ukraine and now Turkey.

        Israel is alone and has known it since obumbles was elected, turdo la doo has also thrown Israel under the bus to please his far left handlers.

          It’s ironic, most of those far left handlers are Jews.

            most of the frankfurt school were indeed secular jews, it is a strange phenomena that leftism includes so many self destructive jews, there was never a shortage of volunteers to stoke the crematoria.

            Every group has their idiots. Left-wing Jews love Obama and hate zionism like right-wing Christians love their Medicaid but hate Obama care.

  • In any case, Nato has no obligation to come to Turkey’s aid if Turkey attacks and Russia reacts. Nato is only obligated if Russia attacks Turkey.

    Boy, I am hoping and wishing that Turkey and Russia go to war, so that Russia destroys Turkey, and sends Erdogan’s Islamic party into the dustbin of history.

    Erdogan kept fucking around and fucking around and pissing me off for years….now the Bear is going to bite him in the ass. Looks good on them.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Not even Obama’s Jihadi Army?

    The erdogan crowd would like nothing better than a mass confusion smokescreen while they slaughter Kurds and the saudis dump tons of fresh weapons to the isis fanatics. They are already militarily supporting their turkomen stooges in northern syria so the Russians have no reason to cut such fools any slack.

    This is a perfect chance to give those newly recruited CIA trannies some hands-on experience.

      He/ shes armed with size 13 high heels could be just the ticket to spread fear and loathing amongst our muslim foes. Even better if they rode war pigs into battle.

    Nato is no paper tiger, it’s just that they are about defending European members from a real attack. Turkey is not a real member, and Russia isn’t the instigator here. Erdogan hasn’t found a friend he couldn’t piss off. Maybe one day he can ESAD.
