'Sometimes NATO-member' Turkey defending Islamic State while killing Kurds. (RT).
Srdja Trifkovic, foreign affairs editor for the magazine Chronicles, said the Turkish Air Force dropped the vast majority of their bombs not on Islamic State positions in Syria, but on those very groups fighting this terrorist scourge, namely the Kurds and the Syrian Army.
“Over 80 percent of the tonnage of their bombs would drop on the Kurds fighting ISIS in Northern Syria and North Western Iraq,” Trifkovic told RT. “Turkey has been consistent in pursuing its own agenda which is to pretend to be fighting ISIS while settling scores with the two parties that are actually capable of fighting ISIS on the ground.”
"It is perfectly consistent with Turkish behavior since it ostensibly joined the anti-ISIS campaign last July,” he added.
But that is just part of the story. The NATO member is not only opportunistically attacking a political foe instead of a bona fide terrorist threat, but is actually helping to fund them.
Larry Johnson, retired CIA and State Department officer told RT: “Turkey has been a major instigator, major sponsor of terrorist activity, of the activity of these radical Islamists and for them to pretend otherwise as a joke.”
Perhaps it was no coincidence that Russian President Vladimir Putin chose the G20 in the Turkish city of Antalya to disclose the shocking information that terrorism is being financed by individual businessmen from 40 countries, including from member states of the G20.
"I provided examples related to our data on the financing of Islamic State units by natural persons in various countries. The financing comes from 40 countries, as we established, including some G20 members," Putin told reporters following the summit.
This earth-shattering news barely registered a blip on the Western mainstream media radar.
Just days after Putin's hot potato landed in the lap of the Western elite, a Russian fighter jet on a mission to take out Islamic State targets was shot out of the sky by two Turkish F-16 fighter jets – without due warning or provocation.
One of the pilots was reportedly killed by ground fire from 'moderate rebels' with ties to Turkey. Hmmmm.......And here comes their Turkmen 'Cat' out of the bag. Read the full story here.
