US will now sell F-16 fighter jets to Turkey; Tragic for Europe and thrilling for Russia
It is reported that several US lawmakers in Congress have expressed their willingness to reward Turkey with the prized F-16 fighter jets, a decision that would have hardly seen the light of the day before the Russia-Ukraine war.
After years of stalemate in strategic cooperation between Turkey and the United States, the tides are finally turning. Ankara’s recent stance on the Russian crisis has turned the tables upside down.
Washington’s efforts to arm Turkey with deadly weaponry are sure to receive condemnation from its neighbouring rivals such as Greece and Cyprus. It may eventually drag the US into further chaos.
