BitwiseShift: Turkey has recently done an about face with respect to Russia.  Dropping a block against Sweden and Finland to join NATO, now this.   Maybe they discovered that Russia doesn't really trust anyone else controlling access to the Black Sea through the Bosphorus except Russia.  Maybe they heard that Turkey is just Greater Syria and should be ruled from Damascus.


Putin and Erdogan may be Romeo and Juliet, but Russia and Turkey are definitely the Montagues and the Capulets.

I believe the last batch ended up in Syria, because Assad is still sucking Putin's cock and will do whatever he's told.


Best time to get deep discounts on commodities from Russian suppliers is right now! Ask India about the crazy oil deals they have been getting from Vlad's eastern European emporium. Grain, oil, lumber, even metals! Come on down to crazy Vlad's for all YOUR needs!

Maybe we are overthinking this. Maybe the grain was seized primarily to stabilize local prices once seized.
Everything else is a bonus.

Turkey was always going to fall in line at the end.

Russia is their traditional enemy.

You ever heard of the Crimean War? Not the Russian invasion of Ukraine, but the Russian invasion of the Ottoman Empire.

To add, Russia isn't keen on Turkey controlling the city of Istanbul because it's the holy city for Orthodox Christianity. Russia has always to control all the Orthodox Christians.

This.

Turkey and Russia have been fighting over the Black Sea for the better part of the last 500 years. There was no way Erdogan was going to side with Putin. He just wanted to see if he could get a lil quid pro quo from NATO out of the deal.


This.

Farkers frequently accuse Erdogan of being BFF with Putin. That's profoundly misunderstanding the situation. Erdogan wants to re-establish Turkey as a major global power. To do so, he can't be seen as being squarely in the camp (read: a client state) of either U.S. or Russia. So he's sought to play the two sides off of each other, to his own benefit. A bit like Duterte has.

And it's gone just as well as Duterte's effort has.

As it so happens in the last hour I fed my cat, I gave her some treats and I ordered several cases of the food that she likes best online.

I may be scum, but I'm scum who is good to his cat.
