Putting the treasure on the Saudis, who share interests with Russia, is only part of the risk the United States is taking. The United States also has to compete with Beijing, Riyadh, Moscow — and others — bit by bit around the world. Turkey, for example, was once a cornerstone of NATO's Cold War strategy because of its proximity to Russia, the Middle East, and Central Asia. But Erdogan was diligently wooed by Russia and alienated from the United States and Europe. Part of the effort is through cooperation in Syria and improving commercial ties between the two countries. But equally at work was Russia's offer to supply Turkey with the advanced S-400 anti-aircraft missile system - to please the fearless photo retouching service President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "No one has the right to discuss the principle of independence of the Turkish Republic," he said, or any "decisions concerning our defense". This raised alarm in the United States, where Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, was forced to issue a statement dealing with "an inaccurate media report". While speculation is to the contrary, he said Turkey "did not buy the S-400 air defense system from Russia. It's a concern, but they haven't bought it." Five months later, Turkey agreed to buy the S-400 air defense system for a reported $2.5 billion, raising questions about Turkey's NATO membership and even NATO itself. U.S. S of Lockheed Martin's F-35 fighter fleet, imposed hours earlier by U.S. senators, did little to calm things down. Pressure on Turkey will not be tolerated, Cavusoglu said. Such a thing sounds like a sound to the Russians, and a Kremlin spokesman said that Turkey is strongly welcome to buy Su-fighter jets instead.
