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