Turkey using NATO to acquire weapons it could not otherwise afford
I'm sure none of you will be surprised to hear that Turkey is using NATO as a means for weapons acquisition
Turkey is using NATO to procure weaponry it wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford, according to an Armenian military expert.
As Artsrun Hovhannisyan told a news conference in Yerevan, “having failed at attempts to gain military independence, Turkey is using NATO financing to obtain weaponry.”
“NATO missile defense system deployment will largely contribute to Ankara’s military might, raising concerns of Iran and Israel,” he said.
I'm happy to see Iran be concerned... if only it were true. But Israel is a different story.
