The Turkish regime was given an ultimatum by the U.S. Senate this past week: either abandon their acquisition of the Russian-made S-400 air defenses system or face expulsion from the F-35 program.

The U.S. Senate recently gave this ultimatum to Turkey after the latter continued with their acquisition of the S-400 air defense system.

“For Turkey to remain in the F-35 program, it can’t move ahead with procurement” of the Russian system known as the S-400, Senator James Inhofe said in a statement.

 

 

Inhofe, who has succeeded the late John McCain as head of the Senate panel, commented in response to a Pentagon report, mandated by Congress, that warned “the administration will reassess Turkey’s continued participation as one of the eight partner nations should they continue their purchase of the S-400.”

“Turkey is an important NATO ally, but they need to act like it as well,” he said. “Turkey must make a decision between Russia and the West. If it moves ahead with buying the S-400 from Russia, there will be consequences.”

Hal Turner Commentary

Traditionally, it is the President of the United States who conducts foreign affairs, while the Congress (House & Senate) tend to their Constituents needs at home.  

So why, then, has the US Senate taken to meddling in this situation?  

It seems to me that Lockheed Martin, which makes the F-35 and spends heavily on POLITICAL DONATIONS, is flexing its Lobbying muscle.  Why else would the Senate bother with a foreign weapons sale which is otherwise a trivial thing?  

Thus, it seems clear to me that once again, money talks when it comes to our elected officials.  It looks to me as though our US Senate is " steppin'-and-fetchin' " for those who make the big campaign donations.  

Have they no shame; to be so obviously in the pocket of a military contractor?  Shamelessly doing the bidding of political donors?

It makes me sick.

    Turkey is essential to the strategic position of the US in the MENA. Losing Turkey to Russia would be an historic catastrophe that would cede the Black Sea, the Aegean Sea, the eastern Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf to our adversaries. But the Israeli puppets in Washington only care about what Israel tells them to do. And Israel cannot tolerate a Turkey that can defend itself. It successfully blocked the sale of the Patriot system to Turkey, and now it is blocking the sale of the S-400 system.

    The F-35 has so many unsolved problems that it may be the worst aircraft. Turkey should be glad if it does not get this bunch of crap.

    Turkey should sue the USA for compensation for breach of contract.

      Turkey is Shia Muslim? I'm just confused about the Donmeh crypto Jews in both Turkey (we're they the ones arrested in the purge?) and Saudi Arabia that "converted" to Islam way back when...and then got certified ancestry back to Mohammed. Impressive.

      You really think Turkey cares if they don't get a flying brick, but the means to shoot them down? The ONLY time you need offensive weapons like aircraft, is for invasions of other countries, imo. Turkey is flirting with the resurrection of the Ottoman Empire, but I think they have only regional interests.

      Defense has taken the advantage now with current tech given precision missiles. The F35 is manned, it's already obsolete. The missiles fired at it can pull 20 Gs, no man or chick can do that. Well, do that and not die. GI Jane or not.

    it's amazing that a man can be anti Turkey/ISIS one minute and the very next minute is blaming Lockheed Martin for not wanting American military secrets compromised by ISIS/Turkey/Russia. Nobody in their right mind would want Turkey to have F-35s. So why you mad Hal? There's clearly something untoward driving you negativity. Do you happen to have some Benjamins in this fight?

    That is what they are hoping for.

    In fact they are looking for a excuse to remove Turkey from NATO, prior to conquering it and chopping it into pieces.

    When Turkey Hitler Man said he was going to re-create the Ottoman Empire and that he was the head of it, his doom was sealed. They are just waiting for the correct time.

    My opinion is that they will allow Russia to retake Ukraine (remove the Nazi's) and while that happens, disassemble Turkey.

    The pre-flood giant underground bases in Bulgaria and Romania, known about for many years, are reported to be connected to a tunnel system. We also know that Syria is giant country (Bashan).

    Turkey is in the middle of Syria and Bulgaria/Romania. You absolutely know that the tunnel system goes under Turkey and that the west does not want Turkey Hitler Man to ever discover any of that tech.

    Turkey Hitler Man ... So Long, Pal

    Washington lobbyists are as destructive a force to this nation as any foreign threat.

    we can only hope that Turkey doesn't accept the US's blackmail. F35's are junk anyways.
