    No Deal on F-35’s to Turkey

    No Deal

    AW1Ed | July 17, 2019 |

    President Trump announced that the U.S. is not going sell the F-35 stealth fighter jet to Turkey. The country received a new missile defense system from Russia – an exchange he claims was spurred on by inaction from the Obama administration.

    U.S. officials have expressed concerns about Moscow’s potential intelligence gathering on the stealth aircraft if Turkey came to be in possession of both the American aircraft and the Russian Air Defense Missile System.

    “Turkey is very good with us, very good,” Trump said. “And we are now telling Turkey, because you have really been forced to buy another missile system, we’re not going to sell you the F-35 fighter jets.”
    Trump Cancels Sale of U.S. F-35 Fighter Jets to Turkey

    The U.S. will cancel the sale of F-35 fighter jets to Turkey after Ankara decided to buy a rival missile defense system from Russia, U.S. President Donald Trump confirmed Tuesday.

    Russia’s S-400 is considered one of the most advanced air-defense systems in the world.

    The U.S. has long argued Turkey’s purchase of the Russian system not only risks the security of NATO members, it also violates the 2017 law threatening sanctions for any purchase of sophisticated Russian technology — the Countering Russian Influence in Europe and Eurasia Act of 2017.

    Trump blamed the Obama administration for never reaching a deal to sell a comparable American missile defense system to Turkey.

    “Because they have a system of missiles that’s made in Russia, they’re now prohibited from buying over 100 planes,” Trump said of Turkey during in a Cabinet meeting. “I would say that (F-35 manufacturer) Lockheed isn’t exactly happy. That’s a lot of jobs. And frankly I’ve always had a very good relationship” with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Trump said.

    Another “gift” from the previous administration. Maybe if we play nice Erdogan will let us have a peek under the hood. Read the rest of the article here: Breitbart

    Turkey’s usefulness has always been that they play double-triple-agent for profit. The trust in what Turkey will do is , you can always trust them to be dishonest. You need info on Russia , Pakistan, or Iran, Turkey is your go to spy network for $$$$$$$$$!!! You want to spread disinformation, Turkey will sell your intel to the enemy if they think it is real.

    There is a 110% chance F-35 technology would be sold to Russia , China , Iran and any other enemy willing to pay.

    Fuck Turkey, I hope they get nuked for more than just killing every Christian they could in country.
