With up to 1500 Turkish military on the ground adjacent to the ISIS capitol of Mosul, working directly, according to sources, with their Kurdish partners in Erbil and their ISIS allies in Mosul, the new American base placed along oil smuggling routes into Turkey will be a real aid to ISIS.
Now Turkey has moved into Syria as well, setting up a base along oil smuggling routes. Turkey is planning to escort oil convoys offering NATO “human shield” protection, Turkish Army light armour, to keep illegal oil flowing on behalf of Erdogan, his family and political allies in Europe, America and Israel.
