Why did the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan order the shoot down of a Russian fighter plane. What was the 'real' reason behind the downing of that fighter jet.

ISIS is the richest terrorist group in the history of terror. ISIS pays it fighters to fight on their behalf , pays its fighters to capture, kill and spread the so called message of extremist Islam , to erase all religious competitors from the face of the earth.. ISIS gets most of its money from the sale of oil from its captured oil wells and with an estimated fighting force of between 50 thoudand and 200,000 as suggested by the senior Kurdish fighter, ISIS has a big payroll to meet. It is estimated that ISIS receives between one and two million dollars a ' day ' from the sale of this oil.

SO who buys this oil from ISIS ? Are you ready ? Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan son, who then sells tanker ships full of this 'blood money oil 'on the black market to unsuspecting oil needy countries like Japan.

So where does the downing of the Russian fighter plane come into play in this whole intrigue. Well Russia those buggers have being bombing the shit out of these ISIS controlled tanker trucks that carry the oil from these captured refineries to the ships hired or owned by the President of Turkey's son and good old Turkey President Erdogan is having a shit fit at the thought of his 'family business' being destroyed. So Erdogan ordered the shoot down of Russia's fighter plane to send a message to Putin, with the added threat that Turkey a member of NATO was backed to the hilt by the west and Russia dare not respond in kind.

Now the question begs, if Russian intelligence knew the President of Turkey's son was buying ISIS oil to make huge profits on the 'black market' how come the US surveillance apparatus, the CIA , the US Military and all those drones and satellites America spends hundreds of billions of dollars on, didn't know what Russia knew or did they.

So now we have the leader of Turkey a western NATO member with an armed forces strength of 650, 000 strong military, colluding with the enemy. Is America and NATO looking the other way on this out of political embarrassement, allowing one of their NATO members to basically bankroll the enemy, while at the same time claiming a determination to wipe Daesh (ISIS) off the face of the planet .

Is the west in volved in a conspiracy to cover up the illegal sale of dirty oil and inturn the funding of ISIS. Is the US war machine inept, unaware or is President Obama through turning a blind eye, guilty of helping fund the murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent Muslims by ISIS, guilty of aiding abetting ISIS crimes against humanity. Is the west implicated in the deaths and beheadings of westerners captured by ISIS. Is America and NATO co conspirator's in the forced march of almost a million refugees into Europe and the negative anti Muslim backlash, that is perhaps creating and recruiting more terrorists for ISIS. Is the west using this as a reason to suspend democratic rights and freedoms, unrestreained stop and search and the increased indepth surveillance of western citizens. What a web the west appears to be weaving, perhaps a trial run at a future world wide police state?

DAESH is a US proxy, so the US will support them whatever they do as long as they make war on Syria. Correction please: Turkey is not in the EU, and likely will never be.

How Do We Take Back the Military From the Billionaire Owned Military Industrial Complex?

Thom plus logo Democrats (Bernie & Lee) in the senate proposed legislation saying what the Constitution already says: that Trump can't go to war with Iran without congressional authorization. Every Republican on the committee, except Rand Paul, voted against it.
