The Importance of Turkey

I have repeated the video about the “Middle Corridor” and placed it under this one in case you missed it. The Turkish Armed Forces is the second largest standing military force in NATO, after the U.S. Armed Forces, and the eleventh in the world. consider this from Wikipedia: The following is a list of dynasties, states or empires which are Turkic-speaking, of Turkic origins, or both. There are currently six recognised Turkic sovereign states. Additionally, there are six federal subjects of Russia in which a Turkic language is a majority, and five where Turkic languages are the minority, and also Crimea, a disputed territory between Ukraine and Russia where Turkic languages are the indigenous minority. There have been numerous Turkic confederations, dynasties, and empires throughout history across Eurasia.

Turkey controls the headwaters of the Euphrates system and access to the Black Sea and with control of the Middle Corridor will be strategically important. Historically Turkey  used to control the Ottoman Empire.

Personally, I think Turkey is underestimated.  From a geographical perspective Asia Minor is where many of the ancient Biblical place names are located not in Russia proper. I keep a close eye on Turkey.
