Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on his re-election as Turkey’s president, the Kremlin press service said on Monday.

“The head of the Russian state stressed that the outcome of the vote fully confirms Erdogan’s great political authority, broad support of the course pursued under his leadership towards solving vital social and economic tasks facing Turkey, and enhancing the country’s foreign policy positions,” the statement said.

It was a self-coup, like the Reichstag’s 1933 fire.

The Coup was real, it was everything else that was fake. The Israeli’s found out about the coup conspiracy even before Erdogan did, and they hatched a plan with the US. They involved Erdogan in the scheme and Putin was taken for a ride he hasn’t been able to stop yet. The Israeli’s using third parties, covertly fed Russian intelligence info about the coup, hoping they’d take the bait and they did, hook line and sinker. Putin falsely believed he’d miraculously obtained vital info that would help him pull Erdogan away from the US, and potentially enlist him as an… Read more »

Putin’s trying to change that now, but it will still transit Iraq and Syria even if it does eventually also transit through Turkey. That red line passes right through the US base at AL-Tanf and goes straight up to Al Tabqah. That’s only 275km between the 2 areas and less than 200km to the Iraqi border at the widest distance, and much less in most areas. This is why I keep saying… Read more »
