According to Iranian media, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was warned by Russian intelligence of an imminent coup just hours before tanks appeared in the streets of Istanbul and Ankara last Friday.Jesus H. Christ!
Last week, the Russian army intercepted Turkish military communications that indicated a coup was being organized against the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, according to Fars News. This information was then passed on to Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT), diplomatic sources told the news agency.
The Turks have backstabbed the Russians more times than I can count yet they still warn the guy of a coup attempt? Even more curious is that with the warning the plotters got as close as they did to success and if a pilot had the force of conviction then they could have downed his airplane!
There are more twists and turns in the game being played in the Middle East than I care to try and keep up with.
One thing is certain.
This is about ISIS. ISIS is a tool. We haven't defeated them because we don't want to defeat them.
