turkey_buys_russian_missiles_practically_with_eu_money_eurofora_patchwork_400


*Strasbourg/- Soon after EU's Budget confirmed 3 Billions € per Year in full Grants earmarked for Turkey's Blackmail over Mass Irregular Migrants/Asylum Seekers' Inflow to Europe through its External Borders facing Turkish Coasts, allegedly for Social-Humanitarian pretexts, suddenly, ... patatrac !


=> Ankara's Government confirms too (according to converging Press Reports) that it will spend Most of that Sum (2,5 Billions $), obtained by the EU, in order to Buy ... heavy Military Weapons from Russia, as the famous "S.400" Missiles' system, able to Spy, Target and Shoot Airplanes...


Couldn't, at least, EU sell ...its own Arms to that EU-Funded (notoriously Oppressive and Aggressive) Turkish Regime ?


Who is really Responsible for such a Stupid, Anti-European, and Dangerous big Blunder ?


A Scandalous Blunder, since some EU and USA lobbies (at the Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Jospin and Prodi-D'Alema 1998 era of "Socialists" almost Everywhere), had Relentlessly exerted Heavy Pressure, (Pussed by Turkey)using Any Means, in order to ..Cancel a Similar Deal between a European Culture and Peaceful Country as ...small Cyprus, and Russia, precisely about such an "S.300" Air-Defense System then... (which had been Bought by Cyprus' own Money 100%, without the EU spending not even a dollar) !


=> Double Standards, between (nowadays EU Member) Cyprus and Turkey ? Even against EU's (+USA's) own Interests ?!...


And, by the way, more and more Criitics wonder Nowadays : - What is Turkey still doing inside NATO ? Abusing of NATO Member States' Money in order to Buy Russian Missiles on 2018-2020 ; after having even notoriously Blocked NATO's Historic 2009 Summit in Strasbourg/Kehl for a Different against Denmark ; provoked a lot of Trouble on NATO's South-Eastern area by Threatening EU Member and NATO Member Greece over the Aegean Sea ; Smuggled Money, Arms and Jigadists for Deadly Islamist Terrorists at its Syrian Borders, who target innocent Civilian People even in Europe + USA (f.ex., in "CHARLIE-HEBDO" Massacres of 1/2015, Kulibali's GirlFriend holidayed at Istanbul before joining ISIL via Turkey, and 3 of ISIL's Killers at "BATACLAN"'s a.o. Paris' Massacres on 11/2015 had entered Europe from Turkey) ;  Accused NATO Officials with various Allegations +on 2016-2017; and Recently even repeatedly Blocking Access of German Officials, as well as of almost Everybody, to NATO AIrbase at Incirlik on 2016, (which becomes Unnecessary after the development of Modern Technologies, and could easily be soon Replaced by several Other available Options) ?


So that, significantly, EU Council's "Think Tank Review"s selection of Articles published on the occasion of December 2017 EU Summit, (which was distributed in Brussels to "Eurofora" and other Journalists),  finds that this Russian Missiles S400 purchase by Turkey (obviously thanks also to EU Funds), "Drives another Wedge between Turkey and its NATO Allies", and certainly is "a significant development that adds to the Question marks about Turkey’s future in NATO", which is "already Suffering from ...internal tensions", with "a Less Predictable Player than in the Past", and at least "Problematic".

F.ex., doesn't Turkey trust, no more, those "other NATO Member" which have "stationed "PATRIOT" Batteries in Turkish territory" since the Gulf and Syria Conflicts, as that EU-cited Article of "INSS" reminds ? At any case, USA State Department Spokeswoman has already observed, Critically, that if that Controversial "S400" Russian Missiles' deal went throught, "it would Contravene a Commitment made by NATO Members at the 2016 Warsaw Summit", INSS notes. And, in order too "take Full Advantage of ("S400" Missiles' System) Potential", it should be "Integrated with the Radar Systems of NATO or Russia" : Otherwise, "the Question arises, ... Why is Turkey investing such a Large Sum in an acquisition withOut" fully using it ? If this might be done in an attempt to address "Concern among Turkey's NATO Partners about information Leaks, on various levels", as INSS points out, it can be also "Disadvantageous for Russia" to use an "S400" Missile System for NATO purposes, (in addition, perhaps, to Turkey's alleged wish to Snatch Technologies that it would like to Produce itself in Future). And this "is likely to Explain reports in Russian Press that Turkey will Not be given "Independent Codes" to operate the Batteries" : Something which "may call into Question the Implementation of the transaction".


---------------------------


Meanwhile,  even if all the official content of that controversial Turko - Russian Weapons' Deal still remained entirely Secret, nevertheless, it was, Fortunately, anounced that at least 45% of the Russian Missiles' Cost canNot be paid now by Turkey, and is due to be, provisionaly, covered by Loans given by Moscow...


 (Apparently, Ankara may Wait to be Paid by another EU's 3 Billion € funds during Next Years !)


As for the Delivery of those "S 400" Missile System, it's reportedly foreseen to start after 2020.

=> Until then, several things may Change.


Among various others, f.ex., already in the Recent Past, "when the Turks issued a Tender for the acquisition of Air Defense Systems" on 2013, then "won by a Chinese Government Company", it was "subsequently Canceled under American Pressure", reminds that Article cited by EU Council's 12/2017 publication (Comp. Supra).
 
And, mutatis-mutandis, for Turkey to "Back Out of the Deal" for S400 Russian Missiles, in one way or another, "such a Scenario canNot be completely Ruled Out", INSS warns.

A fortiori, (given, particularly, the current Record-High UnPopularity of the Turkish Regime among EU Citizens accross the most Important European Countries, added also to growing Problems in the Controversial EU - Turkey Deal on Massive Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants' influx in Europe via Turkey), it's Not Sure that EU will Persist to earmark +3 BIllions € of full Grants each year for Ankara, (especially, since the Western Balkans' Route had been already Closed with Efficient Measures taken by several Eurpean States, long Before -and Independently of- the subsequent entry into force of that cumbersome EU - Turkey controversial deal, which has Recently started again to show its Limits)...


And, since the EU practically Bears, in fact, the Cost of those Russian S400 Missile Systems that Turkey seeks to obtain (Comp. Supra), then, it would obviously be much more Honest, Logical and Financially correct, for the EU to Buy them Directly for its own !


At least, it would go to much more Peaceful and Democratic Countries, than Turkey, which has notoriously launched Destructive and Deadly Attacks, behind the back, against Syrian and even Russian Airplanes, while they were Struggling versus Islamist Terrorist Gangs near the Turkish Borders, in addition to persisting Dangerous AirFights versus EU+NATO Member Greece over the Aegean Sea...

Sarkozy and Merkel want deals with Obama on European Security at Strasbourg's NATO 2009 Summit

oscenato
------------------
In parallel but concording moves, EU Chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel both invited this week US-President elect, Barack Obama, to discuss important deals breaking new ground on European Security during the NATO's 60 Years Anniversary Summit of Heads of State in Strasbourg, where Obama is expected to make his 1st visit to Europe as a President on April 2009.

Merkel focused mainly on smoother NATO - EU Defence and Security policy cooperation, while Sarkozy spoke about PanEuropean Security, associating both Russia and the USA, proposing to freeze missile and shields' deployement until an agreement is reached.

But both tackled some hard nuts to crack : Turkey's VETO against the participation of EU Member Cyprus to EU-NATO cooperation, and Russia's anouncement on deployment of missiles up to Kaliningrad, at EU's belly, in reply to USA's wish to set up missile shields in EU States such as Poland or Czech Republic, etc.


---------------------
- "Certainly...one of the points that we'll dicuss with the New US President", Barak OBAMA, "who will come f'or the 1st time in Europe as president, at the NATO Summit", co-hosted by France and Germany in Strasbourg, ""concerns, above all, the European Security and Defence Policy" (ESDP), and "the relations between NATO and its partners", with whom it should "work together", anounced earlier this week Merkel.

We must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", because of a "series of practical issues, sometimes difficult to understand", but that "we must discuss".

- "An example" of that is "the issue of Cyprus and Turkey", said Merkel, where Ankara raises problems "from Kosovo up to Afghanistan", as also CoE's chair, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt recently observed in Strasbourg replying to EuroFora's questions.

- "We must do something to smoothen this problem for good, and not only on a case-by-case basis, laboriously negotiated each time". Here, we must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", Merkel stressed.

- "With good will from all sides, it could and should be posible. Germany wants also to help on that". Otherwise, "the coming generations will not understand why it took Decades to do so". But, if we "don't even achieve that for Decades, this would be an Historic Failure !", the German Chancellor warned

- "I think that our American partners are increasingly realizing that", Merkel said, pleading for "a stronger European Security and Defence policy, with which, I believe, the Atlantic Security Partnership can also strengthen and solidify".

Meanwhile, USA is also due to take in 2009 a special status inside EU-led EUROCORPS, the European Army HeadQuarters, based in Strasbourg.

Merkel said that after meeting in Berlin with NATO's Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, earlier this week, precisely in order to "prepare NATO's Summit", scheduled for the beginning of April 2009 in Strasbourg.

Scheffe, knows well Strasbourg, since he chaired the CoE, as Holland's Foreign Minister, when he brokered a controversial deal precisely on Turkey and Cyprus about the implementation of ECHR judgements on Greek Cypriot displaced persons' houses and properties in 2003. He returned later at least once, for a WEO meeting at the CoE, where he precisely had highlighted such EU - NATO issues.

EU Commission's 2008 Report on Turkey has just observed that, on European Defense - Security policy, "Turkey continues to object to EU-NATO Cooperation which would involve all EU Member States". "This created Problems for EU-NATO co-operation in the context of Civilian ESDP missions, in particular in Kosovo and Afghanistan".

 French EU Chair, President Sarkozy and Merkel are visiting Washington on Friday and Saturday for a Global G-20 Summit with current US President George Bush, on the sidelines of which are expected preparatory contacts with US President-elect Obama's entourage, even if himself might stay in Chicago until he takes over on January 21.

Before going to Washington, Sarkozy concluded today an UE - Russia Summit with Dmitry Medvedev, where they "spoke in length on PanEuropean Security" :

- As EU President, I proposed that we meet on mid-2009 in a framework such as OSCE's in order to set the foundations of a Future Pan-European Security, which would associate Russia and USA, and that, meanwhile, nobody speaks about deploying missiles or shields, which complicate the situation".

- NATO's Summit in Strasbourg-Kehl, on April 2009 is a perfect occasion to discuss with our American friends and to prepare a possible OSCE Summit for these issues f.ex. for June or July", Sarkozy concluded.

- We must all abstain from Unilateral measures" dangerous for Europe's security. "Russia only reacted to decisions taken by some other countries. But if they are ready to cooperate, we are ready to discuss. EU could be an intermediary", added Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, before going himself too at the Washington G-20 Economic Summit.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
