Exactly and not only that but what about the surrounding countries? AND the fact that the RUG was pulled almost overnight. NONE of the military officials were told about this, according to many reports. So we let Erdogan do his worst in Syria and then what? Move on to Jordan? Lebanon and Israel? Really?It's not "blood lust". It's called honoring your commitment to your allies, and not pulling the rug out from under them to benefit Putin and Erdogan (or is he rewarding Erdogan for allowing him to build a Trump Tower in Turkey?). Of course I realize "honor" isn't a word that means a lot to Trump and the people defending him.
How much rope is Trump going to give Erdogan?
AND to make matters worse, Turkey has had an F35 program in partnership with the U.S. which was (sorta) PULLED because...and you'll love this....becuz Turkey purchased Russian S-400 air defense systems and accepting the S-400 undermines the commitments all NATO Allies made to each other to move away from Russian systems.
Is everyone getting the picture here?
Turkey going rogue?? With a little help? This is a dangerous partnership and I want to know WHY Trump seems delighted.
