Turkey: Meschech, Tubal, Togarmah and Gomer. Gog of Magog?

The crisis in US-Turkey relations are manifestations more of Turkey’s global estrangement, reflective of her increasing Islamisation, than passage of any  judgement against President Trump or the United States itself.

Its strategic location is exceptional. On land it neighbors the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iran, Iraq and Syria. To its north, across the Black Sea, is Russia. Turkey’s Bosporus and Dardanelles straits control Russian naval transit from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. To its south, across the Mediterranean Sea, are Lebanon, Israel, Egypt and the Suez Canal.

Above is a quote from a very nice, secular account entitled The Crisis in U.S.-Turkish Relations, by J. William Middendorf II and Dan Negrea at “Ambassador Perspectives” (cross-posted from the Washington Times).
