“You’ll cowards don’t even fund ISIS.” -Angela Merkel to Vladimir Putin at recent summit.
Russia has received additional intelligence confirming that oil from deposits controlled by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) goes through Turkey on an industrial scale, President Vladimir Putin said speaking on the sidelines of the climate change summit in Paris.
Moscow has grounds to suspect that the Su-24 was downed by Turkish jets on November 24 to secure illegal oil deliveries from Syria to Turkey, he said.
“At the moment we have received additional information confirming that that oil from the deposits controlled by Islamic State militants enters Turkish territory on industrial scale,” he said.
“We have every reason to believe that the decision to down our plane was guided by a desire to ensure security of this oil’s delivery routes to ports where they are shipped in tankers,” Putin said.
Terrorists have been abusing the visa-free regime between Russia and Turkey to move freely, the Russian leader said adding that Ankara failed to address the issue after Russia raised it.
“We have been asking [Ankara] for a long time to pay attention” to the issue that some of the terrorists active in separate regions of Russia, including in northern Caucuses, have been “emerging on Turkish territory,” Putin said.
Moscow asked Ankara to “cease the practice,” however, “we have traced that they are located on the territory of the Turkish Republic, are living in regions guarded by special security services and police, and they, using the visa-free regime, emerge on our territory and we continue fighting them,” he added.
This is the worst I have seen anyone get blown out so far.
And it isn’t just the Turkroaches getting blown out. It is the entire West.
They fund these terrorists. They gave them three billion euros yesterday.
And the next piece to this puzzle, obviously: Europe had the intelligence showing that Turkey was buying oil from and funneling weapons to ISIS, and did nothing about it.
At that point, the whole house of cards comes down.
This fire hasn’t even begun to rise.
Update 3:26 EST
Erdogan says he’ll resign if Russia proves he’s buying ISIS oil.
Speaking in Paris on Monday, President Recep Erdogan said that he will leave office if there is proof of Turkey’s cooperation with IS.
“We are not that dishonest as to buy oil from terrorists. If it is proven that we have, in fact, done so, I will leave office. If there is any evidence, let them present it, we’ll consider [it],” he said, as quoted by TASS.
The countries from which Turkey buys oil are “well known,” said Erdogan.
He called on Russia to comment on the US’ recent black-listing of Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the World Chess Federation President, accusing him of “materially assisting and acting for or on behalf of the Government of Syria.” Erdogan alleged Ilyumzhinov had been dealing with Islamic State oil.
It’s a gauntlet thrown.
The plot thickens…
