US media called for the exclusion of Turkey from NATO

33
The Turkish army continues military operations in northern Syria - in the area of ​​the city Afrin. Combat operations of the Turkish Armed Forces are conducted jointly with the so-called Free (Liberation) Syrian Army against the Kurdish armed forces PYD / PKK. Today, clashes are taking place in the area of ​​Mount Bursay - the north-western part of Afrin.


US media called for the exclusion of Turkey from NATOThe mountain is covered with sparse vegetation, there were also buildings on it. Previously, several buildings in which Kurdish armed groups took refuge were destroyed by Turkish artillery. In the area of ​​Mount Bursey, Turkish Tanks, which in such conditions are used primarily for covering infantry.
Kurdish detachments in response carry out rocket attacks on the territory of Turkey. Today around 10: 20 local time, as reported by the Information Service Anadolu, frontier Kilis was shelled. The rocket exploded on Shih Mehmet Street without causing harm to the health of its inhabitants.

Against this backdrop, on the American television channel FOX, which is considered the most loyal to Donald Trump, a statement was made about the need to exclude Turkey from the NATO military bloc. Such a statement was made by a former US Army soldier, now a military analyst - Lt. Col. Ralph Peters. According to him, “Turkey’s behavior is such that it has no place in NATO”.

Lt. Col. Peters said that under the NATO charter, the United States should help Turkey as an ally, but at the same time, Turkey attacks the Kurds, who are allies of the United States in Syria.

Military expert:
The Kurds are the second largest ally in the Middle East after Israel.


Ralph Peters:
Is it not easier in this case to exclude Turkey from the North Atlantic alliance?


Attention is drawn to the fact that the host of TV Lisa Kennedy actually supported the statement of the American officer.

    Turn away from an ally due to temporary interests? like this is American. What can we say from us: Welcome! Only this is a pipe dream for us and a real nightmare for star-striped.

            under NATO charter, the US should help Turkey as an ally

            Juggling the facts.
            According to the NATO charter, they should help against whom the aggression is made. Now, if the Kurds attack Turkey, then yes, according to the charter, they should. But while Turkey is the aggressor and shells do not fly over Istanbul, it does not fall under the charter.
            Turkey will not be abandoned by NATO. Control of the straits + a place under the base is very convenient. Scare a little. In extreme cases, the government will be replaced.

      This is unlikely, and rather take on a fright. But he won’t get to Turkey, the government will begin to change. This will be American ...

      Turkey since Perdogan does not fit into NATO. I really hope whose Americans catch up and measure the delivery of the F-35 to the Turks. F-35 at Perdogan is a threat to the entire Middle East.

        I doubt it very much. They are still warriors. Like the Arabs, no matter what equipment they have, they lose it as a nefik do. So the F-35 will not do the weather. Quite the opposite. After all, they require a different level of training from the pilots ....

          I would not underestimate the enemy. For the sin of arrogance, a very strong retribution in the war. Moreover, the Turkish pilot flunked your SU-24M without problems. No, I would not be reassured by their supposed low level. Moreover, all these years they were instructed by Amprikan and German pilots.

        F-35 is complete shit. To put such a good thing for the Turks. But the Turks are cunning and refuse to buy this and even at such a price.

        it means they will simply replace the head of the country, and all business. Not the first time. Turkey itself is very important for NATO. One of the key participants in the block

    The United States continues to lose not only influence and authority, but also allies. That's right: exclude sanctions on them. Look, you decided to pursue an independent policy, they also snarl.

    Yes Yes Yes. The Kurds are the second ally after the Jews. That's right, Mr. Peters, the Sultan has no place in NAT. Kurds Your planes will launch from slingshots, why do you need Turkish airbases. And about the fact that the Turkish army is the second after the state in the bloc - in general, an argument for shkolota. Kurds can be trained and armed. With military experts such as Mr. Peters, there is growing doubt about the adequacy of the entire top of the United States.

      Yes, they will not be excluded, the Turks in the hands of amers are an instrument of influence on Russia. Without amers and Europe, Turkey is doomed to decay. They need each other. And we hope that the Turks will get over to us. It is clear that this is a utopian desire and they do not sleep, while we have candy-bouquet relations, they penetrate into the Turkish-speaking republics of Russia, open their offices, schools, etc. They are preparing trouble in Russia, and I am sure with the approval of the amers.

    The mattresses have already lost their influence on BV, and with the loss of Turkey they will lose even more. The loss of Turkey to NATO is much worse than the loss of this organization to the Turks. This is just a surge of emotions of individuals and nothing more.

    a statement was voiced about the need to exclude Turkey from the NATO military bloc
    If this is said seriously, then today we can expect even more harsh statements from Turkey towards NATO. I like that. Two members of NATO (and Turkey is not the last, unlike the young ones) will breed among themselves. But what’s interesting is that the American media is fueling this “doggy”. Won't the American media launch the real 3rd MV?

    If all the statements made on the Russian First TV Channel, "which is considered to be the most loyal to Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, would be realized ...
    Less listen to retired colonels who rushed to the analysts. Especially the visionary Ralph Peters with his famous opus “Bloody Borders” - the predictions of 2006 of the year in 10 years have not come true. Recently released his new creation - "War 2020 of the Year"

    By 2020, the world experienced a lot: the last nuclear war, the fateful US intervention in Zaire, the terrible epidemic of an unknown and merciless disease that bled the entire planet. The whole land has become a huge chessboard on which the two remaining superpowers - the United States and Japan - play the decisive game in the struggle for world domination. The role of one of the pawns is assigned to the Soviet Union, engulfed in the flames of civil war, weakened by a chronic shortage of everything in the world and incompetent leadership. In the last desperate attempt to survive and preserve the traditional values ​​of the Western world, long-standing adversaries — the United States and Russia — united for a decisive battle against an invasion from the East.

      for sure! it has long been said: “everyone imagines himself a strategist, seeing the battle from the side”, and even a former soldier from behind a large puddle is something special.

      Vladimir Vladimirovich does not watch Channel One, he watches Russia1, among other things, like other ministers and governors. And in all ministries and departments, the Russia 24 channel is constantly on. Moreover, all documentaries, such as "Crimea. Homecoming" and so on, go to Russia1.

    Flag in hand. Until 1979, the most important and privileged US ally in the Middle East was ... Iran. They even got a plane that was not sold to any NATO country or to Israel. Nevertheless, the Americans were able to accumulate such anti-rating there that the subsequent Islamic revolution became anti-American, and Iran has since become the worst enemy and problem No. 1 in the Middle East.
    Why don't Turkey go the same way? After all, her interests are becoming more apparent.
    in conflict with the American.

    US must help Turkey as ally

    Why is that? Has anyone attacked Turkey? How does the 5th article of the NATO Charter sound there? “The Contracting Parties agree that an armed attack on one or more of them in Europe or North America will be considered an attack on them as a wholeand, therefore, agree that if such an armed attack takes place, each of them, in order to exercise the right to individual or collective self-defense recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will provide assistance to a Contracting Party subjected to , or to Contracting Parties subjected to such an attack, by immediately carrying out such an individual or joint action as it considers necessary, including the use of armed force to restore and subsequently maintain the security of the North Atlantic region. "
    Turks have been confronted with the Greeks all their lives - this was a more compelling occasion, since both countries are members of NATO. But this was never an occasion to anyone.
    Turkey is strategically important for NATO - control over the straits and generally the situation in the BV. The idle talk is ordinary, I would say even bespontovy. The importance of Turkey is even indicated by the fact that a separate article is devoted to it in the NATO Charter: "ARTICLE 6-1
    For the purposes of Article 5, it is considered that An armed attack on one or more of the Contracting Parties includes an armed attack:
    - to the territory any of the Contracting Parties in Europe or North America, Algerian departments of France 2, territory Turkey or islands located in the North Atlantic zone north of the Tropic of Cancer and under the jurisdiction of any of the Contracting Parties;
    - on the armed forces, ships or aircraft of any of the Contracting Parties, if these armed forces, ships or aircraft were in these territories, or above them, or in another region of Europe, or above them, if on them or in it at the time this Treaty entered into force, the occupying forces of any of the Contracting Parties were stationed either in the Mediterranean Sea or above it, or in the North Atlantic Zone north of the Tropic of Cancer, or above it. "
