    Russia vs. Turkey — Pass the nachos.

    The EU had better wait before making any decision to allow Turkey into the EU.

    A diplomatic note from Vlad to Ertogan using the Saporog Cossacks style book
    would be appropriate…..and a shout out by Vlad to his dear dear friends the Kurds would cause a sleepless night or two for the wannabe Caliph…

    Merkel and her camarilla would allow the Norks into the EU….hell, she’d allow them into NATO

    Although Ertogan has somewhat emasculated the military in Turkey I’m sure I can hear the faint strains of “boots and saddles” in the barracks of Ankara.
    I reckon odds of 6/5 against the wannabe Caliph avoiding the silken cord.

    Many fond memories of Turkey…..the food….the inexpensive whores….the opium and so on…….the country is truly beautiful of course…..the people were benighted clods without a doubt…..still are I should think.
    Perhaps Vlad will give them an opportunity to finish Kemal Ataturk’s program.

    The father of the Turks loathed and despised Islam in all its works and manifestations……..which is nice.

    I seem to have worked up rather an animus against the Turks today…forgive me if I bore…..but they, in my books have not been sufficiently humbled punished for their historical transgressions…..which are legion and of long duration.

    Drive them before you Vlad…..lay the knout on vigorously…..make them dance!

    Vlad is not happy because he has been frozen out of the trade’s profits.


  • Spatchcocked

    Vlad is possessed of riches far beyond the dreams of avarice….Vlad is actually pissed because Ertogan is a prick and shot down one of his men…..and he’s queening Vlads pitch in Syria…and he’s a Turk.

    That fat fundamentalist f::: in Ankara just bought himself a big problem…one that won’t go away for the Turkish lumpen till Ertogan exits ….

    Vlad will give Ertogan a primer on destabilisation.
