Turkey is our ally

Reader comment on item: Musing on History
in response to reader comment: Putin's reasons

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Nov 26, 2015 at 20:16

Hi, Moh. You said,

There's no valid excuse for NOT doing what the Russians have done in bombing the oil supply system.

There IS a good excuse: We are allied with Turkey, ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Islamic Brotherhood and every other Sunni entity. Turkey is our only NATO ally in the region; and they are pro-ISIS and anti-Russian and anti-Assad, etc. Should Obama bomb the fuel tankers of his actual allies, just because he pretends to be at war with them? Obama isn't that dumb.

Happy Thanksgiving
