Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

My friends, we have to wake up to the Russian threat.

I blame Russia for the terrorist attack in Turkey that killed at least 28 people and wounded perhaps 60. Why? Because Turkey is the only Muslim country that belongs to NATO. Russia hates NATO and wants to destabilize Turkey. Whether the perpetrators were PKK or ISIS, the blame still rests with Russia. The PKK is a terrorist group created by the old KGB. The KGB also had a hand in creating ISIS. Just read our book Red Jihad for the details. 

Apologists for Vladimir Putin have been telling us for months that Turkey has been SUPPORTING and FUNDING ISIS. That’s a big lie. A suicide bomber who struck a busy tourist area in central Istanbul on Saturday, March 19, was an ISIS terrorist.

In this context, CNN reporters are noting that ISIS considers the Muslims in Turkey as apostates because they work with NATO and the West. That point is correct. The obvious purpose, if it was an ISIS attack, is to try to force Turkey out of NATO. Consider the timing: The NATO Summit of Heads of State and Government in Warsaw, Poland, will be held on July 8-9 and is scheduled to address the implications of the Brexit. The terrorism directed against Turkey will also now have to be on the agenda.

If the PKK did it, that would be no surprise.In fact, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has directly accused Russia of providing anti-aircraft weaponry and rockets to the PKK. "At this moment, terrorists are using anti-aircraft guns and missiles supplied by Russia,” Erdogan recently said. “The separatist terrorist organization is equipped with these weapons. They have been transferred to them via Syria and Iraq.” These allegations followed revelations that the PKK used a Russian-made shoulder-launched missile to down a Turkish helicopter.

Retired Turkish diplomat Murat Bilhan, who served in Moscow, noted, “The PKK had an office in Russia and from time to time it received assistance and support from Russia in the 1990s; Russia never considered PKK as a terrorist organization.”

Russia is on the march. Putin knows he has a free hand as long as Obama is president.
