In China: Turkey’s closure of Incirlik base could cool US hotheads

35

In China, they appreciated the statements of the Turkish authorities regarding a possible retaliatory measure against the United States. This is a statement by Turkish officials that Ankara could completely block access for the US military to bases located in Turkey, and accordingly, the Americans will have to take out their arsenal of nuclear tactical weapons (air bombs) from a military base in Turkey.


Such statements were made to the United States after Washington approved anti-Turkish sanctions for the acquisition of Ankara S-400 air defense systems from Russia. First of all, the Americans, as you know, blocked the transfer to the Turkish side of the contracted new-generation F-35 fighters. Additionally, the United States is trying to take action against Turkish officials and the military, which are related to the C-400 contract with the Russian Federation.

In the Chinese edition of Sohu, the author notes that Turkey’s statement about its readiness to get rid of US military bases on its territory "could cool the hot heads in the US." It is added that Turkey in this case will become the first NATO country in the 21st century, which will allow itself to close American military bases.

In China, they write that the acquisition of S-400 from Russia, Erdogan showed: there is no previous trust in the United States, the Incirlik base can become exclusively Turkish.

From the material:

He asked them to extradite Fethullah Gulen to Turkey, whom Erdogan considers the ideological inspirer of the coup attempt. But Ankara refused the Obama administration, ignores his requests and Trump.

In China, they emphasize that Erdogan has the following plan in his head: if Gulen is not extradited, then Washington has decided that he can repeat his attempt to remove him from the presidency. That is why the Turkish president is looking for alternatives to strengthen Turkish security.

For reference: about 5,5 of thousands of American soldiers are deployed at Incirlik airbase (Turkey). There, according to some reports, the US Air Force maintains an arsenal of nuclear tactical weapons.

        The Sultan, in general, it seems to me, is fighting for the Sultanate (although he does not forget about himself, how could it be without this). The interests of the Turks (as he understands them) are above his own.

        Edik, in addition to Gulen, has further expanded his line of claims against the United States and NATO, demanding that the Kurdish armed groups be recognized as a terrorist organization. Given the fact that they rely specifically on the Kurds, it becomes very difficult for mattresses to find a compromise with Ankara. Probably have to collect manat and move to the Greeks.

    This action will be akin to the proverb "I will sell a goat for evil to enemies ..."
    It is clear that Erdogan is playing for a pot, but rather he is bluffing. Otherwise, how can you "cut off" the hand of the nursing one ?!
    Yes, Turkey is currently seeing some kind of economic upsurge, but what will happen to this upsurge if Matrasia turns away and even finds her wards? The numbers of the economic downturn will exceed growth significantly.
    So, I think it’s too early to talk about the decisive steps of the old man (and he is really not young) of Erdogan ...

      How can you believe the Chinese Yandex Zen.
      Sohu ("Sohu") is a Chinese Internet company that combines a media portal, search engine, and the largest information brand in the Chinese Internet space. On the portal, Chinese Internet users publish materials on various topics: from politics to everyday events of life. Most of the authors are non-professional journalists.
      They printed how the Tu-160 left the F-35, we were discussing here, it turned out to be a duck. They printed a duck again about a registered nuclear explosion in the Sea of ​​Japan.
      Moderators need to avoid such incidents by blocking all materials with links to Sohu.

      Turkey is a part of the Belt and Road, and there is orders of magnitude more money than from US bases, for which they call to pay 100% of their upkeep, plus 50% purely into the US pocket "for the roof"

    The US Senate unanimously adopted a resolution recognizing the Armenian genocide by the Turks. I think this will not add peace and harmony in the relationship of "partners". I think it's time for American pilots to pack their bags, and the Turks to lay straw in case they leave NATO.

    Erdogan refused to send his military to Poland and the Baltic states to protect against the alleged Russian threat. In general, it’s time to accept Turkey into the customs union, since they didn’t take them to the European Union. The second most powerful army in NATO after the United States goes into an alliance with the Russian Federation.

    A few days ago, the Congress of Pin Dosius unanimously recognized the Armenian genocide by the Turks in 1915, and the Turks always reacted to such statements painfully, so there will be something. lol

    Turkey’s statement about its readiness to get rid of US military bases on its territory “could cool hotheads in the United States.”
    The Chinese are too optimistic. "Hot heads" in the United States, probably nothing can cool it. Moreover, the Bulgarians have already rushed in by offering the Americans their territory in the event of their withdrawal from Turkey.

      Our government has everything with a mattress. What for NATO to ruin. Such noodles on the ears of Russian citizens about the mythical confrontation. And why are there kids - the hostages live? And real estate and bills? Zadolbali these meaningless arguments as we defeat the evil west. He steers at our place for a long time.

          Have you heard about the concept of "two worlds, two systems"? Now it has transformed into one system and all the countries of the planet live in this system, with the exception of North Korea. And between those who live in this system and all of us existing - surviving the abyss. What's so difficult, the moneybags are squabbling for even more profit. The confrontation was the USSR-capitalist west, now a fiction.

            You poorly read the founders of Macrsism-Leninism about the contradictions in the capitalist world.
            And if in the case, then no one canceled the competition in the struggle for resources and markets. all the more, Russia is treated not as a market competitor, but as an ideological adversary, all the more so illegally owning valuable resources.

            "The confrontation was the USSR-capitalist west, now it is fiction."

            It's not about confrontation, but about survival.

            "US President Donald Trump spoke about the seized oil and gas fields in Syria. The American leader said that natural resources belong to Washington.
            “We have oil, and we can do with it what we want,” the politician emphasized, hiding behind the fight against Daesh militants (the Arabic name for the ISIS group banned in Russia). "The terrorists tried to maintain control over the oil, and now we have complete control over it," Trump said.
