            Yet US economy is massively in debt now and it started ever since they went to war for the past 60 years.

          • dutchnational

            Correct. But it is a debt in dollars. If necessary, they print 4 trillion in notes and pay every foreigner in cash. Will mean nobody will ever loan them another dime again but the debt will be gone.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The actual number is close to 35-38 trillion dollars US , but US claims 20+ trillion owed, their numbers are always off.

      • Bulgarian God

        Shut up gypsi. It’s a real bulgarian lands !

        Do not you ever read history books? in history Turks have always been with the oppressed. but it will hurt the capitalist dog like you. your media is a liar. you always watch the events like you are right on TV. but we live in this geography. I’m looking at your meddles to see what’s right and what’s wrong. So now you tell me whether your media is lying or is it my eyes?

        • NeoLeo

          Wtf are you babbling about?? The only history book you’ve read is erdogan’s propaganda manual for little kids. Ask your bulgarian boyfriend here @Goat did you oppress them or not, ask any Balkan nation, ask Armenians, ask Arabs, ask Kurds today. Dog? Your sultan erDogan is a dog (and you are his b*tch).

    • RGtz98

      They are the 2nd biggest NATO army, they probably suck RN due to the thousands that were purged

  • Ivanus59

    The video is pointless since all it shows is helicopters flying around. No explosions or damage done to any of them in the video. :/

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Well it was confirmed by Erdolf himself of it being downed, so they need a better video.

      • Toxicus Mechanicus

        Actually TAF says it was most likely a malfunction. Dumb Erdogan has no idea what he is talking about. He was in a meeting giving speech when he said that a helicopter was downed and at first everybody thought YPG shot down so he said that helicopter was shot down by YPG. But there is nothing at hand that suggest the helicopter was shutdown by someone.
        In the video helicopter has no engine power and tries to land with autorotation but they went down so fast. What are the chances of YPG scoring a critical hit to engine or transmission with a DShK ? (Presuming they fired at it with DShK if they fired at all)

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          They shot down two and both suffered casualties , 2 pilots died in one and 9 others died while transferring troops most of those were officers. Seems that the TAF will defeat itself with stupid maneuvers like these ones and the TSF will likely implode from being inept as it usually has of late. The accuracy of such weapons can be of some dispute but when you fire a couple rounds at once one will always hit.

          • Toxicus Mechanicus

            You are clueless. Crashed helicopter is an assault heli,crewed by 2.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Check the news lately had the info the same day of the attack on the two helos

          • Toxicus Mechanicus

            If you are following YPG media they downed hundreds of helicopters,”sieged” jets mid air (lol),sunk a dozen of submarine fleet and some destoryers. They also shot down a few satallite on top of killing 30.000 soldiers.
            Really? There is no 2nd heli downing. 11 soldier died in total in different parts of Afrin. Just because I am wondering where do you get these news from?

            The agonizing pain.

  • Ottoman armies turned back in disgrace. Just like 1683! :D

    • Jack Murder

      I want to remind everyone on this platform of something that everyone else has forgotten. almost 100 years ago, the Ottoman state, which almost all the world count https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bfcb26fbcbb5e06aac0a699fce4cac847d258f4265877418046cc944cb09772b.png ries attacked with the latest technology weapons but could not defeat, became the second largest army of NATO, one of the biggest associations of the world 100 years later. Do you think that the terrorist organizations supported by the imperialist powers will be renewed? POWER IS LOCATED IN EAST.
      Image source = https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallipoli_Campaign

      • Your link says otherwise. Ottomans joined WW1 by their choice, not because they were attacked. Same situation exists today.

        • Jack Murder

          The Gallipoli War is not an attack, it is defending. If you read clearly that you did not read history, you knew how to talk to a Turk.

          • Are you dense? Ottoman attack on Odessa preceded Gallipoli…..When you start a war there are consequences. I know you Ottomans love Gallipoli, as it was your one and only “win” in WW1 so whoop it up, even though it was basically a draw. Now, yet again you Ottomans are initiating wars, as you have done for 700+ years.

            I’m not Trump, but if I were you Ottomans would be expelled from NATO, Cyprus and northern Syria.

          • Jack Murder

            we Turks have taken our place in history for thousands of years. you in the last 100 years: D but do not be afraid we will be sorry for you

          • Yes. Thousands of years of being raging barbarians, alongside your Mongol brethren. You have already forgotten the lesson of 1918 so you will have to relearn it in 2018!!!

          • Jack Murder

            You could not even breathe in the Middle East if it were not the figurine base. you have forgotten your lesson: D

          • Figurine base? WTF is a figurine base? :D

          • Incirlik is no more irreplaceable than Clark AFB in Philippines.

          • Jack Murder

            I hope you know where the Philippines are. because we are in the Middle East. but you are talking about a slave country in the great ocean. :DDDD

          • Slave country? What is a slave country?

          • Jack Murder

            This means the country is kneeling in front of imperialism.

          • Like 700 years Ottoman Empire?

  • Skagos

    Such incompetence. I don’t think any wise commander would use choppers in a mountanious area. We know PKK has MANPADs but in such a dense and mountanious area choppers can be taken down by other means, such as, DShK(ДШК, for Дегтярёва-Шпагина Крупнокалиберный, Degtyaryova-Shpagina Krupnokaliberny).

    Let’s remember, In 1988, during the conflict in Northern Ireland known as “the Troubles”, a British Army helicopter was hit 15 times by two Provisional IRA DShKs smuggled in from Libya, and forced to crash.

    And the conflict in Northern Ireland’s battlefield wasn’t as dense or as mountainous as it was in Afrin yet British Army’s chopper was taken down regardless.

    I suppose use of choppers are due to the pressure created by the political figures. Perhaps they are told finish this op. as quick as possible. But an operation’s success has nothing to do with its duration. I doubt any academician would include duration as one of the parameters of a succesful military operation.

    • Ma_Laoshi

      Turkey has a standing army of half a million if I have it right. Now not all of those will be equally usable, but if you send only 6000 men (in mountains, against an experienced enemy) then clearly the idea is NOT “be decisive as quickly as possible”. And TFSA cannon fodder hardly changes the equation, just as likely you want most of them killed off before they cause too much trouble inside Turkey itself. It rather seems that Erdogan is sending a message to the US, probing their reaction, while limiting losses to the Turkish armed forces to what he can get away with politically.

      • dutchnational

        You are at least partly correct. On the other hand, turks likely seriously underestimated both YPG numbers and fighting capabilities.

        • Ma_Laoshi

          Hubris is the stuff wars are made of; it’s always like that.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      This downing was confirmed by news in Turkey and Erdolf so it’s definitely downed.

    TERRORISTS (PYD/PKK/YPG/ISIS) BECOME BAIT TO WOLVES

    Surrounded by the three sides, Afrin’s terrorist sites in the towns were held intensely by the border guards around the storm. Turkey has also started its fighter jets destroyed a large number of positions. After the shooting of the targets on Syria’s Raco Mountain, there was a high level of smoke rising in the area. Military activity continues in the region. :)))))

    #2 TERRORISTS (PYD/PKK/YPG/ISIS) BECOME BAIT TO WOLVES

    The targets in Syria are shot with F-16s from the air, and with the storm surge and multi-barrel Rocket Atar (ÇNRA) missiles on the ground in the Olive Dalı Operation successfully executed by the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK). The operation of the Olive Branch initiated by the Turkish Armed Forces towards terrorist organizations DEAŞ, PKK / YPG-PYD in Syria is continuing successfully. Turkey shield the set targets are hit by helicopters and F-16s. On the other hand, the storm surge and the ÇNRA fighters do not breathe the terrorists. After the shooting of the targets on Syria’s Raco Mountain, there was a high level of smoke rising in the area.
