Russian President gave orders to his army to cross the Turkish red line. By giving such orders, Russian forces can enter into direct conflict with Turkish forces. Moreover, NATO warships will be faced with severe concequences if they enter the Black Sea near the nation’s territorial boundaries.
President Erdogan’s “red line” regarding Kurds in Syria was drawn in February when he said: “We will never allow the establishment of a [Kurdish] state in Syria’s north and our south. We will continue our fight in this regard no matter what it costs.”
Erdogan’s greatest fear, this report explains, is the link up of the three majority Kurdish cantons of northern Syria (Jazira, Kobane and Afrin) which would eliminate the territory now held by Turkish armed Islamic terrorists providing his terroristic criminal cartel with $800 million of profit earned this year alone from the smuggling of illegal Islamic State oil being funneled through this area to the port of Ceyhanin the Adana Province in southern Turkey.
With Federation Aerospace Forces, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces and Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) smashing Turkey’s “game” in Syria in order to seal the Turkey-Syria border away from Islamic State oil being smuggled through it, this report continues, Erdogan carried through with his threat the “Turkish Army will strike” by his downing of a Federation bomber aircraft as these Russian allied forces moved westward—and as G. Murphy Donovan, a former US intelligence officer, writing for the American Thinker, likewise stated about: “How Russian airstrikes in Syria threaten Turkey is not really much of a mystery. Russians were known to be bombing terrorist oil targets south of the Turk border – too effectively it seems.”
