Turkey is not an ally and should be treated as a hostile country.
Which, I guess, kind of puts us in the same relationship as Russia has with Turkey.
You cannot make nice with a scorpion.

The United States should move their military forces from Incirlik Air Base in Turkey to the New Republic of Kurdistan.
US doctrine on battlefield is shoot, move, communicate.

“Who authorized this? “
The US Congress with the AUMF in 2001, right after 911.
It’s a blank check for any POTUS and allows Congress to look the other way, being derelict in their duties.
And, a friggin’ travesty.

I think everyone knew the general areas we are operating in.
Still, this will give us more reason to slap them if they get in our way - we still owe them for not letting us disembark a division in the north during Iraqi Freedom, which would have sealed off the dirtbags trying to flee into Syria.

ISIS is Turkey’s plausibly deniable expeditionary force.

Turkey has only survived as long as it has because it has been in the best interests of a majority of European countries to prevent Russia from annihilating Turkey and therefor gain a warm water port.
My warning to Erdogan, if it becomes evident that you are an enemy of the United States we will give the green light for your destruction and there is nothing that your European vassal politicians can do to save you. We will let the Russian bear hound you and all of your fellow genocidal Turks back into the Asian Steppe. The few remaining Turks that survive will curse your name over the ages.

The Turks really really don’t want the Kurds comfortable on their border. This could be why Trump made it public he was ending the program to arm rebels - turning the heat down on the hotheads we seem to have just about everywhere nowadays.

This is all open source and well known info.
Nothing new, I’ve posted info on most of these sites, here on FR many times.
Every goat herder on the planet is now on Twitter.
It is beyond me how Turkey was ever brought into NATO.
My question is, how long will it be until some Moslem group SUV bombs one or more of these USA bases?
Are USA commanders doing anything to protect USA troops there? Maybe even remove most of them.
