Lord Dannatt, former head of the British Army and Lord West have confirmed that ISIS was and is funded by Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Jordan.

Turkey provides sanctuary and hospital doctors and nurses to injured ISIS fighters and buys ISIS oil.

ISIS mixes its oil with oil from Iraq, which means that British and European motorists indirectly finance ISIS which also makes money by taxing the 8 million people under its rule, criminal activities and selling Captagon a mind-altering drug.

This last point was covered in many newspapers, including The Guardian.

I contend that Turkey is a threat to us all by pretending to be a staunch NATO member but in fact following a Salafist agenda by assisting ISIS as a means to recreate a latter-day Ottoman Empire.

I suggest that perhaps Turkey shot down the Russian aircraft in the hope of provoking a Russian response leading to America helping Turkey to create safe havens in Syria as a precursor to toppling Assad and Turkey gaining Syrian territory which it has already referred to and earmarked as its own.

In an outstanding and balanced article, the NYT writes that it was thought to be the first time a NATO country has shot down a Russian plane in a half-century – the article then highlighted that tensions immediately took on Cold War overtones.

If you read the article carefully, Turkey‘s policies are deeply disturbing.

Turkey is dependent upon America’s patronage, so why doesn’t Obama apply some serious leverage to Turkey?
