With Turkey and Iran starting economic and military cooperation in the last year or so, and now Turkey with Russia, don’t be fooled.
This RT article reminds us that there have been five centuries of war between Turkey and Russia, and Turkey and Iran.
The wars with Russia reflect a Muslim kingdom contending against a Christian kingdom. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries Russia fought to stop the slave trade run by the Ottomans which enslaved two-thirds as many Slavs as those enslaved in the West African-Atlantic slave trade.
The wars with Iran are a manifestation of Sunni Islam versus Shia Islam.
The article states:
“A member of an expert body advising Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan hinted that Ankara is prepared to go to war with Russia after tensions over Syria’s Idlib province escalated over the past 24 hours.”
Russian and Turkish forces have crossed paths in the Syrian border city of Idlib. Russian airstrikes killed 33 Turkish soldiers. Nations have gone to war for less.
This is a reminder that despite Turkey “making nice” with Russia and Iran recently, they are still historical foes at the core.
It is likely, according to the Signpost interpretation, that Turkey will indeed go to war during the Fourth Signpost. It will be in the form of the Antichrist’s ten-nation empire attempting to expand into Russia.
The Turkish officer is quoted from the RT article as saying,
“We have fought Russia 16 times in the past, and we will fight it again.”
