Russia is now raising huge questions about Turkey’s foreign policy. According to a leading Russian news agency, some Turkish officials have ‘direct financial interest’ in the oil trade with the terrorist group Islamic State, citing Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev in Russian retaliation to Turkey’s downing of a Russian warplane in Syria on Tuesday.
Of course, Turkey is a member of NATO and President Obama seems to have no influence over Turkey.
It raises questions about America’s foreign policy too. Obama can get into bed with Iran and Turkey but seems to always have strong words for Israel – surely something’s wrong big time?
