Pfft, I hated Turkey before it was cool.

But I'm glad my leftwing brothers are finally on board with my plan to make Istanbul Constantinople again!

3. Hell, if Putin, the leader of predominately-Orthodox Russia wants in on it

I'm sure we could get a new Holy League to restore the Patriarchate.

8. Islam is an official, government subsidized traditional religion in Russia

“Islam in Russia is the nation's second most widely professed religion. According to a nationwide survey conducted in 2012, Muslims in Russia numbered 9,400,000 or 6.5% of the total population. However, the populations of two federal subjects with Islamic majorities were not surveyed due to social unrest, which together had a population of nearly 2 million, namely Chechnya and Ingushetia, thus the total number of Muslims may be larger. Among these Muslims, 6,700,000 or 4.6% of the total population of Russia were not affiliated with any Islamic schools and branches. Recognized under the law and by Russian political leaders as one of Russia's traditional religions, Islam is a part of Russian historical heritage, and is subsidized by the Russian government. The position of Islam as a major Russian religion, alongside Orthodox Christianity, dates from the time of Catherine the Great, who sponsored Islamic clerics and scholarship through the Orenburg Assembly.”

9. "Second-most"

Yeah, 6.5%

Christianity is 47%

Russia spans 12 time zones and two continents, it's bound to have a few derka derkas in it.

And Russia regularly has to flatten their cities to keep them in line.

12. I saw a lunatic lefty on Facebook wailing about innocent Syrians dying.

Syria,a client state of Russia that lefty now wants us to defend just because.
This after 2 1/2 years of claiming that Trump was a puppet of Putin but now is terrible in not rushing to aid him.

Makes ones head spin.
