Indefensible Moves: Pentagon criticizes Turkey’s plan to buy Russian air-defense system [VIDEO]

One country that views the US as a major threat is Turkey. That comes amid a row between the two NATO allies with the Pentagon recently slamming Ankara’s recent decision to buy a Russian air-defense system – rather than opting for NATO technology. Washington says the Russian equipment could be incompatible with other systems used by the alliance. Turkey says it had tried to purchase similar systems from Washington, but the US refused and that’s why Ankara switched business partners.
