Russia is certainly a historical adversary of Turkey, but the same can be said about the western bloc.
The actions of this western bloc with the aim of destabilizing turkey or even dividing it are indisputable,
- Support for pkk separatisites.
- Sanctions and destabilization of the economy.
- Embargo on certain sensitive technologies (civil and military).
- Unconditional and very generous military support for Turkey's regional adversaries, etc....
It is true that turkey has no interest in ukraine falling, but it has even less interest in going into destructive war with russia, where the only real winner is the other enemy, the Western bloc.
The only viable option in my humble opinion, it is the acceleration of the sanctuarization of turkey territory (including nuclear weapons).
Why do you guys swing to extremes? Turkey is against Russia is syria, libya, Azerbaijan, did it lead to an all out destructive war?
Unlike the Arabs, Turks don't really have a fetish for either side. Both are dangerous and hostile to Turkey. Russia is a more immediate threat for Turkey then the western bloc is. Only reason Turkey even joined NATO to begin with was because Stalin was making claims on Istanbul and eastern Turkey.
Western bloc has no real ability to stage an invasion against Turkey, but Russia if Turkey sits back and allows it to grow will do. The Russian ambition has always been to take control of Istanbul. A pretender power to the Roman empire.
Nah, you will be stupid to sit back and allow Russia to have thing their way in the region, absolutely stupid.
