Turkey s war with Putin is also about Oil..

 Turkey needs Oil.. it has to import a lot of it..

.

 International media outlets paint a picture of a government that is attacking its own people, that is insincere about fighting ISIS, that shot down a Russian fighter jet for no good reason,. Turkey claims the plane encroached on Turkish airspace and received multiple warnings before it was shot. But the  Russian President Vladimir Putin called the incident a “stab in the back” committed by “accomplices of terrorists.” President Putin, clearly furious, accused Turkey of “a stab in the back” and claimed that the government in Ankara was the “accomplice of terrorists”. Warning of “significant consequences” for Turkish and Russian relations, he insisted that the Su-24 aircraft had posed no threat to Turkey before it was shot down. “Our aircraft was brought down over the territory of Syria, using an air-to-air missile from a Turkish F-16. It crashed on Syrian territory, 4km from Turkey,” he said. Turkey and Russia, are headed down the road to mutual enmity.  Turkey’s downing of a Russian warplane on its border with Syria last month has spurred a swift and sharp deterioration in bilateral relations, with the Kremlin imposing retaliatory economic sanctions.
 .
The US itself  admits the Russian  plane was not in turkey when it was shot down  Television footage showed the SU-24 going down in flames over the Bayirbucak region on Syrian territory. Targeting and downing of Russian warplane in Syrian air space is a strategic miscalculation in part of Turkey, which will bring serious implications for Turkey and its relations with Russia  The area where the Russian warplane went down is mainly populated by Turkmen – Syrian citizens but ethnic Turks – and is the focus of a Syrian government offensive.
 .
 Following the downing of the Russian jet by Turkish military on Nov. 24, reports have emerged which claim to have documents on the involvement of Turkey in buying oil from ISIL. The Russian President has accused Turkey of shooting down its fighter jet to protect energy supplies from the terrorist militants Turkey has also been facing criticism for facilitating militants’ border crossings to join ISIL in Syria, as well as for providing assistance to Takfiri terrorists waging war in the Arab country.
 .
 The diplomatic crisis immediately spread to business relations between the two countries. Despite an asymmetric volume of trade, Turkey has had Russia as a major trade partner over the years, making some $6 billion worth of exports in return for as much as $25 billion in Russian imports.
 .
In its initial response, Russia advised its citizens to cancel their holidays in Turkey and banned charter flights to the country. Russia has also denied entry of Turkish trucks to the county, leaving exporters, particularly those carrying fresh fruit and vegetables, with heavy losses stemming from long the waits at border gates spoiling their food.
.
Russia ultimately banned most food imports from Turkey beginning on Jan. 1. Turkey sold some $1 billion worth fruits and vegetables to Russia in 2014. Restricting employment of Turkish citizens in Russia, Moscow also suspended the visa-free travel regime between the two countries.
 .
Meanwhile, the trade of barbs between the two has yet to simmer down. Moscow has set an official apology as a primary condition for a resolution in the crisis.  announced   the suspension of the visa exemption regime with Turkey, another measure to respond to the downing of a military plane in Syria, termed here as a hostile act.
 .
 Russian authorities decided to suspend the preferential regulation that frees from visa requirement the Turkish citizens as of January 1st, 2016.

 After shooting down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24M tactical bomber jet operating in Syrian airspace, in early December 2015 the Turkish government sent a heavily armed battalion to the Zilkan military base in Iraq. the Turkish military deployment was a move by the Turkish government to secure its illegal oil trade with the so-called Islamic State (ISIL/ISIS/IS/DAESH). This move ignited tensions between Ankara and the Iraqi federal government, which renounced it as an act of Turkish aggression.   While there are claims that Turkey is acting independently of the US government, it is highly improbable that no coordination has taken place in regards to the joint US and Turkish objective of regime change in Damascus. The re-direction of Turkish energy trade falls in line with the US objective to cripple the Russian energy sector by obstructing energy trade between the Russian Federation and other international actors.

America’s Syrian aerial campaign “for (over) a whole year (failed to notice) convoys of fuel tanker trucks with smuggled oil that feeds the terrorists’ forces . The ISIS is a toy used by the US, the West, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel  for their oil agenda and plans to reshuffle the map of the Middle East.
 .
Israel has been re-exporting the smuggled oil that Turkey has been exporting from Syria and Iraq.
.
Thirty thousand barrels of oil a day. $19 million a month. That’s apparently the revenues that are flowing to the Islamic State. Its oil exports flowing through Turkey. And now  Israel is  one of the principal middlemen for the sale  of  Islamic State oil.  http://www.mintpressnews.com/211910-2/211910/
.
Israel has imported as much as three-quarters of its oil from Iraqi Kurdistan (nearly 1 billion dollars’ worth of oil) in recent months. ISIS oil is allegedly transported to Israel via the Turkish-Azeri company of billionaire Mubariz Gurbanoğlu.  Now  Israel has decreased the volumes of oil it buys from Azerbaijan. In the past  Israel’s oil supply also  came from Russia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan
.
”  Israel has indeed been laundering illegal oil from northern Iraq. They seem to not care. They are agnostic, it seems to me, whether that oil is being sold to them by the Kurdish regional government, which is pro-American, or by ISIS, which apparently America is against. In either case, the Israelis seem quite happy to launder that oil and provide, therefore, the group, whether it’s ISIS or the Kurdish government, finances. So yes, it is absolutely true that the relationship between Malta and Israel is of the essence here. Malta and Israel are joint partners in exploring for oil fields”
.
And  Tel Aviv has tried to legitimize its appropriation of the Palestinian natural gas reserves off the cost of the Gaza Strip.
.

Former Iraqi national security advisor Mowaffak Al-Rubaie said Turkey is heavily involved in smuggling and selling stolen Syrian and Iraqi oil.   A Norwegian daily Klassekampen report prepared at the request of Norway’s Foreign Ministry with Rystad  Energy, an independent oil and gas consulting firm, revealed large amounts of oil smuggled from ISIS-controlled Syrian and Iraqi areas into Turkey – for black market resale at low prices. ISIS’ strength and ability to flourish depends on foreign support – from Washington, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel and other complicit nations. The whole world knows what’s going on despite Western officials and complicit media turning a blind eye to this war  crime.

 .
  Turkey  that drags its feet when it comes to closing its border with Syria. It also violates Iraqi sovereignty by stationing troops in that country without permission, has failed to stem the refugee flow to Europe, jails its journalists and, according to Amnesty International, mistreats refugees.
.
If the Turkish government believes it can win a war with its own people it is simply being delusional.  The fighting between the Turkish government and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in southeastern Turkey has increased dramatically in the last few months, leading to concerns that Turkey   could be headed for a civil war of its own. The fighting between the Turkish government and the PKK has been ongoing since 1984. Instead of going ahead with democratization efforts that would have enabled the easing of Kurdish grievances, the government re-started the fighting in late July 2015, It’s a fight that has cost the Turkish economy more than a trillion dollars during the past three decades  Kurdish people were subjected to a systematic and often brutal assimilation policy after 1923. The outcome was the PKK.
 .
NATO supports Turkey cause it wants a war with  Russia  while Turkey wants the oil in Syria,
.
.
Canada and the US are falsely taking side with Saudi Arabia over Iran. The Justin Trudeau Liberal government are not the peace makers they had  lied and said they were during the elections. Relations between Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia and Shiite-dominated Iran have been strained for decades. The oil-rich foes have also been divided over the nearly five-year war in Syria, where Iran is backing the regime, and the conflict in Yemen where a Saudi-led coalition is battling Shiite rebels.
.
These are, unfortunately, dark days for Turkey which likely will get worse and not better. The EU is reluctant to accept Turkey as a Member.
 .
And it’s very hard for  the Americans to tell the truth in any area,  and to clarify what is happening and what they’re doing.
