Turkish journalist: Turkish authorities started talking about the possible deprivation of the United States of the right to use the Incirlik base in response to sanctions

On the eve it became known that the United States imposed sanctions against Turkey for the deployment and testing of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system acquired from Russia. Recall that the Turkish Armed Forces tested the S-400 with the implementation of test firing in the area of ​​the Black Sea Sinop.


The United States declared that Turkey's actions were "unacceptable" and introduced a package of sanctions restrictions, including restrictions on the supply of arms and goods for the military-technical industry to Turkey. Recall that earlier Canada imposed an embargo on the supply of military hardware components to Turkey, which led to problems with the creation of the Bayraktar UAV.

After the imposed sanctions, the press writes that in Ankara "they started talking about a possible response to the United States." In particular, the Ahval news service publishes material stating that the Turkish authorities may deprive the American Air Force of the possibility of using the Incirlik airbase.

Journalist Zuifikar (Zulfikar) Dogan writes that "the relationship between Ankara and Washington is entering an unpleasant phase." According to him, Ankara "uses a familiar threat to the United States - with the Incirlik airbase, which is used by the American military."

The Turkish authorities started talking about the possible deprivation of the United States of the right to use this air base in response to sanctions

Recall that in addition to restrictions on the supply of weapons and military-technical products, the United States imposed sanctions against Ismail Demir, who heads the Turkish Defense Industry Directorate. It was he who arrived in Ukraine the day before, where he signed an agreement on the construction of corvettes and attack UAVs. Also, Washington has blocked for Turkey the possibility of obtaining loans from international financial institutions, which (loans) could be used for military and military-technical purposes. Among other things, the United States has frozen the visas and assets of employees of the Directorate of Defense Industry and the Directorate itself.

Turkey claims that the authorities may require the United States to remove tactical nuclear weapons from Incirlik. weapon... However, it is added that Ankara can take such a step after the inauguration of US President Joe Biden, if his administration does not lift the sanctions imposed by the Donald Trump administration.

In such a situation, Biden gets a complicated "legacy" here too. If the sanctions are not lifted, then Incirlik can be lost. If canceled, it will become an argument for other countries wishing to buy Russian weapons and intimidated by the American CAATSA sanctions package.

          Edik is already a "shot sparrow" and after the coup attempt he has certainly increased his security. Most likely the mattresses will drag their manats from Inzhirlik to Greece, which the Greeks will only be glad to see. this alignment will strengthen their position in territorial disputes with Turkey.

            Greece is not profitable, since for flights you still need to use the territory of Turkey, and in this case, for each aircraft it will ask for permission (Turkey will have the right to allow or prohibit one or another aircraft). Moreover, create an infrastructure from scratch. Plus, the distance from the planned places of use will increase.
            And most importantly, Greece is a country with a large external debt, which is covered by new loans. And it is very risky to build an airbase in a country that almost declared itself bankrupt twice. Sooner or later, they will declare themselves bankrupt, and it is not known who will buy these airbases. Maybe even China.
            And most importantly, the United States understands that if they withdraw airbases from Turkey, they will lose it. Since Turkey will immediately move closer to Russia or China.

    Although I am more than unfriendly towards Turkey, I like its position in defending and promoting its interests. Moreover, it is not a closed country, like North Korea, but a NATO member with the second largest army.
    And the United States, with these sanctions, only added a trump card to it in promising negotiations with the Biden administration.

    Turkey claims that the authorities may require from the USA to take out tactical nuclear weapons from Incirlik.

    Or they may not demand ... In the East, all agreements are sewn not only with thin, but also with white thread. Example? Doesn't Erdogan understand that his intervention in the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict has not caused much joy in the Kremlin? But he did what he did ...
    So it is here. They will give Erdogan either a "new toy" or a "new headache" ... Is the United States going to save the Turks? There are many allies there. There is, after all, Israel ...

    it's certainly not bad. that one of the divisions of the NATO military, the Turkish army, does not listen to commands from the higher headquarters. On the other hand, looking for the Turkish army, as a unit of the NATO army, an order from the US army headquarters is equivalent to an order to one company from the commander of another company. Now, if such an order came not from the commanders of the US army but from the NATO command from the headquarters in Brussels, then it could be said that the NATO army is monolithic and subordinated to one-man command. And now, two divisions of this army are threatening each other that if you have anti-aircraft missiles,
    then you won't have my bombs. What a mess!
    But Poland and the Baltic states are even more pleased with this mess. Those who will now agree that these bombs were in the warehouses of their NATO army unit, because they are a warehouse, a training ground and cannon fodder, all the way into one of the possible aggression against Russia, the pit themselves climbed, the United States pushed and from this terribly pleased, So that they have already stretched out their claws to transport this nuclear weapon from Turkey to their proving grounds. And this is very close to the borders of Russia and this is bad ...

        But Turkey's policy in the last 15 years (approximately) runs counter to NATO's policy.

          There is one thing, but if I am not mistaken, the NATO Charter states that no one has the right to exclude from NATO. Countries can leave only of their own free will. And if they do, then immediately Turkey will conclude an agreement with either Russia or China. Both countries will not mind having Turkey as their allies. The United States understands this very well and knowing the hot Turkish heads, they will not push them to this step.

            What "puncture" exists in the charter.
            Likewise, the EU did not delicately register an exclusion from the Union.
            And in vain. Any organization should provide
            both voluntary and forced exit from it.
            But, I think, if they really want to, they will gather, change the charter and
            will be excluded.
            We will not guess.

    Ukraine will offer Biden to move Inzhirlik closer to Chernigov or Sumy. The iron argument is fuel economy, and the approach time is significantly reduced. Biden's son will be offered permission to extract shale gas in a couple of western regions. Fortunately, there is a pipe and the delivery arm to Europe is short. In return, the old man Biden will send the US construction battalion to the construction of the base, they have experience in Gasterbyte in the Black Sea steppe.

    It seems to me that the Turks will not have the courage to expel the Americans. They will continue to give hints through the media. Any country that keeps the nuclear weapons of another country on its territory is not independent. The advantage of nuclear weapons is the ability to use them of their own free will, and the disadvantage is the ability to receive a nuclear response. Countries that keep US nuclear weapons on their territory have no advantage, but the disadvantage remains in full.
