“We have come to an agreement with the US regarding closing down the Manbij area,” the Turkish foreign minister told the Haberturk newspaper while visiting Saudi Arabia. As part of this deal, HIMARS systems will be arriving in Turkey's borders in May. Therefore we will be able to hit Islamic State in a more efficient way," he added, explaining that the current range of Turkish top-of-the-line rockets is only 40km, while America’s ground-based HIMARS can reach 90km. This will enable Turkey to help the Syrian opposition on the ground too. "To wipe out Islamic State from this region, we need to support the moderate opposition both from the air and ground,” he noted. Turkey taking out the Islamic State has to be the biggest joke I've heard in a week of news. If it's on the surface and goes up in the air, it's simply a weapon capable of taking out aircraft. Who has aircraft in Syria you ask? That's right the Russians have aircraft in Syria. Don't let our government foil you into thinking that Turkey will use this against ISIS, when they have already shot down a Russian jet on it's way to ISIS and when Turkey kills everyone who fights ISIS. This weapon will likely be used against Russian "aggression" or Kurds fighting ISIS. What actions have Turkey showed us in recent months? That's correct taking Russian planes out of the sky and killing the Kurdish minority in Turkey and Syria. So yes the US government is handing surface to air weapons to a country who has committed countless war crimes in Syria and Turkey, and a country who continually gets caught giving medical care to ISIS fighters. So America here are your tax dollars at work, going to a country who gets caught funding ISIS on a continual basis and kills off the Christian minority in Turkey. This shows us that are weapons continually get place in the wrong hands overseas, when they should only be in the hands of the US military.
