In a shocking move, Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered Russian troops inside Syria, to seal the Syrian border with Turkey. This is going to cause HUGE trouble.

Turkey has been profiting by allowing oil, stolen from Syria by ISIS terrorists, to be smuggled into Turkey via convoys of oil tanker trucks. Once the tankers arrive in Turkey, the oil is slightly refined, re-packaged to look legitimate, then sold cheap on the open market. This theft and smuggling nets ISIS about $100 Million per month, which funds its terror operations. Of course, Turkish officials get their palms greased as well, for allowing the smuggling to take place. Chief among those getting their beak wet is Turkish President Recypt Erdogan and his sons.

In addition to now cutting off ISIS money – and Turkey’s illicit profits — this border closure will stop the flow of weapons into Syria. Weapons supplied paid for by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and supplied to ISIS and Al Qaida inside Syria via Turkey, designed to overthrow the Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.

This move by Putin amounts to “check-mate” against the coalition that has been trying for four years to overthrow the government of Syria. That coalition includes the USA.

This totally unexpected move comes on the heels of a negotiated cease-fire which very much calmed fighting throughout Syria. But in that time of cease fire, vast quantities of weapons and ammunition were shipped into Syria from Turkey, and ISIS has now escalated its fighting, re-taking portions of Syria previously liberated by Syrian and Russian troops. Rather than fight such battles over again, Putin has ordered the border sealed.
