Reader comment on item: Why Erdo─čan Decided to Shoot down a Russian Plane

Submitted by Garioch (Belgium), Dec 12, 2015 at 08:11

I welcome this opportunity to make a comment especially since the UK 's Daily Mail and Guardian of 12 December do not appear to be permitting comments today on current reporting especially on the threat to yet another UNESCO world heritage site in Libya, and to Iraq's request to the UN for support in having Turkey withdraw its forces from northern Iraq. Turkey is allegedly dealing in illegal oil supplies which fund Isis, takes every opportunity to attack Kurds wherever they are, and continues to insist that Assad must leave. The current administration makes Turkey an unreliable ally and a threat to any semblance of making order out of the chaos in the Middle East.
