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...

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
