These days things are not looking good for Vladimir Putin. He does not have a friend in any nation in Europe, he does not have a friend in the Western Hemisphere, he does have some sort of relationship with China, but there are simply no friends around the shores of Asian nations. Yes, he does have a friend in Israel. Then again, making friends with Israel is akin to having the person most disliked being your buddy.
Vladimir used to have a friend in Turkey whose president, Recep Erdogan was the Putin of the Middle East. So, what happened? A Turkish plane shot down a Russian plane. According to Putin, “we have received additional data which confirms that the Islamic State(ISIS)” was selling oil to Turkey.
Let me get this straight: Turkey is our ally in the fight against ISIS and Turkey is buying oil from ISIS. Now, we know why Turkey would rather bomb the Kurds than ISIS!
