Published 2019-07-20 23:30:17 by Joaquin Flores in Defense, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Turkey

What does Washington take into consideration when it deprives Turkey of its fighters?” – Vesti

Why the United States Will Not Launch a Ground War Against Iran 

Published 2019-07-20 10:30:17 by Guest Author in Headline-News, Iran, Mena, United-States
