The Downing of the Russian SU-24 by Turkey was an act of complete idiocy on the part of Erdogan has set the stage up for a new war. Putin is said to be so mad that he is hell bent on making Turkey pay. The speed at which Russia moved to cut ties with Turkey illustrates how serious Putin is. The S-400 units were deployed in record time into Syria with specific instructions to shoot down any foreign aircraft that violate Syria’s airspace. The moment these units were on the ground, all the members of the coalition team suspended flights in Turkey. The S-400 is a lethal piece of hardware, and once it locks on a target, there is very little chance of escape. Up until recently, Turkey violated Syria’s airspace on a daily basis. We suspect the Russians will wait for them to make one mistake and then legally take their planes down. There is no polite way to say it, but Turkey acted in a cowardly manner when they downed the Su-24. A bomber is no match for a supersonic jet fighter, and there were two F-16’s waiting to ambush Russia’s Su-24. Furthermore, the Turkmen acted like true barbarians when they shot and killed the unarmed pilot, breaking all international rules when it comes to war. It is stunning that the U.S did not issue a stronger rebuke against Turkey or for that matter NATO.
U.S media is not covering it, but Russia unleashed a furious response and delivered a very heavy punishment to the Turkmen and all the rebels in the region the Su-24 was downed. Russia is going to systematically dismember these rebels. The next step will be to attack all the supply lines coming from Turkey and to arm both the Kurd’s and the Houthis. The kurds will be armed to give Erdogan a taste of his own medicine, and the Houthis will be armed as payback to the Saudis for supporting the rebels in Syria. The house of Saud has taken a big gamble, and they should seriously tone their rhetoric against Russia down. The West still does not understand the mindset of Russians. When they get pissed off, they will do the opposite of what you expect. Pushing Putin now is simply asking for trouble. He has the full support of his people, and he is now ready to go after those that attack Russian interests. We still believe that there is a strong chance that Russia will attack either Turkey or Saudia Arabia to send a very strong message to the world, that those who cross the red line will be dealt with very severely.
Our religious provocation index has soared to new highs, so we can state that without a doubt, Russia is now going to take the war to Turkey and NATO and anyone that tries to complicate Russia’s mission in Syria. Erdogan and Saudi Arabia should now forget about their grand plans of becoming the dominant players in the middle east; their time has come and gone. Iran will become the top power in the region and Russia will become the top player. Most will argue against this, but we do not present our argument based on emotion. The trend is completely against the U.S and its shady partners such as Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
This will trigger a massive arms race in the Middle East, and such races are good for Defense companies. We will issue three plays today, but the entry prices will be based on the stocks pulling back as most of them are trading in the overbought ranges and we never chase a play.
How you can play the Syrian war card as an investor
Open positions in the top defense companies out there; the table below provides a list of some of the top players out there. We will wait for our trend indicator to guide us into this sector. Our suggested strategy is to wait for strong pullbacks before deploying new capital
We need to add that all wars are terrible, and the innocent and helplessly are the ones that always pay the heaviest price. We are not advocating war, nor do we support or condone the way most wars are conducted. However, as trend players who follow the principles of mass psychology we are putting our side our personal feelings and focusing on the trend.
