    Turkey has always been hit or miss as regarding their membership in NATO
    NATO can get along without them but they could use some of the strategic bases in Turkey

    I would have told the EU to get bent 10 years ago. In fact, this carrot in front of the donkey game is (to a degree) responsible for Erdogan closing Turkey off. Don't get me wrong. Erdogan is horrible but why try.

    When the EU showed it's hypocrisy on Scotland vs. Catalonia issue, my sympathies on EU politics and NATO became crystal clear. Let their globalist house of cards fall IMO.

    Turkey's problem is that it has no friends. The American tourist industry can fair well without to Turkish Lira. I'm no sure at all how Turkey will do without the Americans' dollars.
