Not on topic.............and doesn't mention the establishment dirt bags using the office for self enrichment. Biden is guilty as HELL.................and everyone with any common sense knows it.

Back to Turkey............other than the air base and that location, the choke point to the Black Sea................we don't freaking need them at all.

They need to remember one thing...........if they try to destroy Israel..........we will blow them into the stone age.........

Israel is the biggest source of terror in the Middle East.
The US had no enemies there until it began backing the Zionist colonization of Palestine.


"Israeli–Turkish relations are the bilateral ties between the State of Israel and the Republic of Turkey. Israel–Turkey relations were formalized in March 1949,[1] when Turkey was the first Muslim majority country to recognize the State of Israel."

^^ Ahhhh....there we go. It’s “Israel’s fault”. Blame the Jews for what the Muslim Turks are doing.

Gawd you people are pathetic.

Is it hard to understand why non-Jews would object to Jews stealing their land and water? Maybe you should take the time to find some facts instead of relying on right-wing fiction?

The Origin of the Palestine-Israel Conflict

"What really happened was that the Zionist movement, from the beginning, looked forward to a practically complete dispossession of the indigenous Arab population so that Israel could be a wholly Jewish state, or as much as was possible.

"Land bought by the Jewish National Fund was held in the name of the Jewish people and could never be sold or even leased back to Arabs (a situation which continues to the present).

"The Arab community, as it became increasingly aware of the Zionists’ intentions, strenuously opposed further Jewish immigration and land buying because it posed a real and imminent danger to the very existence of Arab society in Palestine.

"Because of this opposition, the entire Zionist project never could have been realized without the military backing of the British.

"The vast majority of the population of Palestine, by the way, had been Arabic since the seventh century A.D. (Over 1200 years)"

Yes, a group of people kicked another out of some land and took for their own. That is how all nations on this Earth were founded. Why do people obsess so much on the Israelis doing it?

The Jews of Israel are continuing to steal the land and water of non-Jews in Palestine. The process will not end until Jews achieve control of all of Palestine with no more than a 20% minority of non-Jews living among them? In case you missed it, the military conquest of land was outlawed at the end of WWII (unless you're Jewish and bribe a critical mass of US politicians)

Well if the Jews gave citizenship to Arabs they would overrun and find themselves being killed off, because that’s what Muslims do to all non-Muslims under their control.

U.S. forces say Turkey was deliberately 'bracketing' American troops with artillery fire in Syria

Turkish forces who launched multiple artillery rounds near a U.S. Special Operations outpost in northeastern Syria on Friday have known for months that Americans were there, according to four current and former U.S. officials, raising questions whether Turkey is trying to push American troops farther from the border.

The incident occurred on a hilltop base overlooking the town of Kobane as Turkey continues an operation launched Tuesday against Syrian Kurds, some of whom the United States has partnered with for years in its campaign against the Islamic State. The incursion has focused on an area 60 miles to the west of Kobane, but U.S. officials believe Turkey has long-term aspirations to control a much larger swath of Syria.

The rounds landed about 9 p.m. within a few hundred yards of the base on Mistenur Hill, U.S. officials said. Navy Capt. Brook DeWalt, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement that the U.S. troops “came under artillery fire” but were unharmed and that there was an explosion.

“The U.S. demands that Turkey avoid actions that could result in immediate defensive action,” DeWalt said.

In a statement issued Friday, Turkey’s Defense Ministry said its troops had not fired on the Americans and were acting “in self-defense” after one of their border posts was attacked.

But the situation, first reported by Newsweek, was more serious than characterized Friday, several officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

It is truly sad what has happened to Turkey in the past few years. At one time, they were firm supporters of the West.
They sent troops to Korea during that conflict.
Turks were on the allies side in Vietnam.

Islam raises its ugly head to destroy a once free people.

There are currently equal numbers of Jews and non-Jews living in Palestine. Every Jew of legal age has a meaningful vote. About 20% of non-Jews have a similar franchise. Jewish state or democratic state?

Israel Defense Forces - Wikipedia

"In 1983, the United States and Israel established a Joint Political Military Group, which convenes twice a year. Both the U.S. and Israel participate in joint military planning and combined exercises, and have collaborated on military research and weapons development.

"Additionally the U.S. military maintains two classified, pre-positioned War Reserve Stocks in Israel valued at $493 million.[110] Israel has the official distinction of being an American Major non-NATO ally. As a result of this, the US and Israel share the vast majority[citation needed] of their security and military technology."

The position from which those artillery rounds were fired should be scraped off the map. I think that would send the appropriate message...

"Trump signed an executive order Friday giving the Treasury Department 'very significant new sanctions authorities' against Turkey over its actions in Syria, but the US doesn't have any immediate plans to use them, Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said."

"On May 1, 2003, President George W. Bush stepped down from a Navy jet that had just landed on the USS Abraham Lincoln. He was wearing a flight suit and he had a message: 'Mission accomplished.'

"He stood before service members gathered on the ship, floating off the coast of San Diego, to tell them the military engagement that had begun in Iraq less than two months before had been successful."
