Russia and Turkey are in negotiations for the sale of the S-400.

Turkey and Russia are haggling over the price for Turkey’s purchase of advanced long-range S-400 anti-air missiles, billed as F-35 killers by Moscow.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed on the outlines of an S-400 deal in May 3 meetings in the Black Sea resort town of Sochi.

“Now we have intensified the talks on some technical details and prices,” Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik said Wednesday.

“As soon as the price issue is settled, our heads — the president and the prime minister — will make a final decision,” he said, according to Turkey’s Hurriyet newspaper.

The S-400 deal is expected to be a main topic of talks at the White House next Tuesday between Erdogan and President Donald Trump.

Turkey is looking to buy two S-400 missile batteries from Russia.  Further proof for me they're not to be trusted.

Was discussing this over beverages yesterday.  The bartender said, "then the US should put missiles in Cuba." 

I guess she wasn't completely  asleep in History class, just dozing.   :blotto:

Ha ha, not sure why we trusted them in the first place.
That part of the world has always warmed up to the side who benifits them the most, they do it with out crossing the line to far either way. That way if they need help from wither side they get it.

It's called playing both sides of the fence. It causes high tensions at times. But overall it works out well as we always need a middle man to deal with for less then desirable actions.

Years ago, fairy tales all began with, "Once upon a time." Now we know they all began with, "If I'm elected."
