Turkish media: France threatens us with old ships and planes


Paris' efforts to supply arms to Athens makes little political sense. Moreover, Emmanuel Macron is hardly sincere in his desire to protect the interests of the Greeks from Turkey in the Mediterranean. The Turkish resource Milliyet writes about this.


Greece, through its Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, announced the purchase of French arms. According to Mitsotakis, this will strengthen the country's armed forces and make Greece strong. The arms delivery program was adopted during a meeting between the Greek prime minister and the French president in Corsica last week. The list of weapons includes 18 Rafale fighters, 4 multipurpose frigates, 4 sea-based helicopters.

According to Milliyet, Greece simply has no money for French weapons. France also has no spare funds, otherwise the authorities would not raise domestic fuel prices, provoking "yellow vests" at demonstrations.

These weapons are undoubtedly remnants that, quite possibly, were already in use and are currently decommissioned.

- conclude the experts of the Turkish edition, saying that France threatens Turkey with old ships and aircraft, supplying them to Greece.

Mitsotakis had better come to his senses and start negotiations with Ankara, during which to discuss issues of geological exploration in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, as well as joint oil and gas production with Turkey

- notes Milliyet.

    That's what the S-400 does. And the Turks have gone wild. But the Greeks seem to have a S-300? I am on the side of the Greeks. Maybe then the Turks in Syria will be more accommodating? Yes, and our pilots can be avenged?

    It's funny to hear this from Turkey, whose fleet is half of ships previously decommissioned from the US Navy. France is a serious country that is capable of building combat aircraft and warships of all classes, and Turkey has barely mastered the F-16 screwdriver assembly, under a US license and has only recently begun to build corvettes according to its own design. Such parts of Turkey are equipped with foreign equipment and mostly very old. such as the antediluvian American tanks M48 and M60, and France independently produces tanks, and the French Leclerc has one of the most powerful such guns in the world. French ATGMs are also considered among the best. Given the fact that the United States has withdrawn its military base from Turkey and is transferring it to Greece, the Turks will no longer receive US support in the conflict with the Greeks. So let's see how Turkey will receive very colorful people from the anti-Turkish coalition.

    In terms of level, they are approaching some overactive idiots out of 404. Those, too, since 2014. tell how they will tear Russia apart and what a sludge the Russian army is armed with. I remember in May 2014. a dozen boobies out of 72 ombras under the camera promised that by the end of the summer in Moscow there would be beer for 6 hryvnias. I wonder who was left alive?
    And the Turks have enough "well-wishers" like France. And France itself is a very serious country. Behind it the EU and NATO. But for whom NATO will fit in in the event of a conflict with Turkey, I have no doubts.
    The appearance of the armed forces of different countries in Turkey simply indicate the red lines, to its place in the sun. And she, so far, does not understand.
    Well

    Mitsotakis had better come to his senses and start negotiations with Ankara, during which they will discuss the issues of geological exploration in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, as well as joint oil and gas production with Turkey.

    - just touches. Let's discuss how to export grain from your barn and how much we will leave you. Purely surplus allocation.

    -Yes .., of course ...- yes !!!

    According to Milliyet, Greece simply has no money for French weapons. France also has no spare funds, otherwise the authorities would not raise domestic fuel prices, provoking "yellow vests" at demonstrations.

    -Almost ridiculous actions of France ... -It is necessary to manage ... -How to drive your aircraft carrier with an accompanying group of frigates ... closer to Libya ... -And then what ??? -Macron wants to show how brave he is ... so brave that he would dare to start World War III ... -Yes, Sarkozy obviously acted smarter ... -he bombed Libya in front of the whole world like this; that no one "noticed" this ... -And Macron likes "cheap show-off" more ... or rather Macron is only capable of this ...
    -So what's next ??? -And then ... -further, not very brave Greece will be forced to publicly reconcile with Turkey (okay, at least not publicly apologize to Turkey) ...
    - There ... - "militant" and also ... - not very brave Egypt ... has almost made peace with Turkey ... - And that was ... - I was really going to fight her in Libya ... - Hahah ... - Well, Greece will have the same ...
    - In short ... - as it is with V.V. Mayakovsky ... - "the incident is ruined" ...
