#7 In short they're going to continue using Turkey as a club to beat NATO with until they're done doing so, and then fuck them over, and because Erdogan is a vicious little rabid retard he's going to continue doing this even with Lavrov saying stuff like this in public.
And the people who bitch about Trump allegedly being a Russian asset are going to sit their with a mouthful of shit and say nothing about this. As they have everything else from the OPM database, armies of brownshirts on US soil, the attempted Egyptian putsch by the Brotherhood, etc...
