McAdams: Turkey’s Erdogan Chooses Russia Over US


RPI Director Daniel McAdams appeared on RT America's News, Views, Hughes program today to discuss the big story that NATO partner Turkey has thumbed its nose at US criticism and decided to purchase the Russian S-400 missile defense system. The US will be bound to apply economic sanctions to Turkey for the move under a 2017 law punishing any country doing business with Russia's military sector due to Russian activity in Ukraine and claims that Russia interfered in US elections. Also Turkey will be forbidden from purchasing the F-35 stealth fighter that it had been a partner producing. As McAdams points out, this is really a momentous shift if the US follows through and chases Turkey out of the NATO orbit. Watch the interview here:
