Is this during the world wide media campaign against neo-ottoman, jihadi Turkey? The creators of ISIS who were funding the Turkish way of life with takers full of stolen Syrian crude. Massacring Christians and brave female Kurdish freedom fighters and the reason for dead toddlers on beaches. Why would the West flinch? It’s only Muslims after all - all terrorists as Putin had the world believe. You know as well as I do that Turkey had no choice. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but let’s not carried away with today’s privileged eyes......Turkey should have refused the deal saying we have way more than is pushing on EU borders. Forcing EU to get involved militarily.
