United States suspended all air operations at Incirlik airbase

33
In the Pentagon, they announced the suspension of air operations at the Turkish Incirlik airbase, since the country's authorities closed the airspace after a coup attempt, reports RIA News.




At the same time, “the US is working with Turkey on the speedy restoration of all air operations against the IG,” the ministry said.

However, the mode of conducting these operations will be changed “in order to reduce the (negative) impact on this campaign,” the Pentagon says.

Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt авavushoglu reported on the detention at the airbase of several Turkish soldiers involved in the attempted coup.

According to him, after the activities at the base will be completed, Turkey will continue to participate in the fight against the "Islamic state" as part of the Western coalition.

Meanwhile, the Sabah newspaper reported on the arrest of Adem Khuduti, commander of the Second Army of the Turkish Armed Forces. He was detained following Air Force commander Akin Ozturk, the alleged leader of the rebels.

      Unfortunately, there can be a lot of things. Only in the last decade, how many countries have been destroyed.
      But the airbase here, 3,14ndos needs a lot, and Erdogan knows that.
      Most likely now it will begin to put pressure on the states through the base (and not only), bargain for its buns.
      By the way, after all, in Turkey there is still a nuclear weapon and it’s there to threaten us.

          Yuri55! 09.25. In Vietnam, the Americans lost but they made good fortunes. But in Afghanistan, the Americans won. They grow poppy, PMCs operate, there are army forces, the country is in ruins and technologically located in the Stone Age. The victory of amers in Afghanistan is evident.

        Erdogan seriously took a bite with the States, setting the condition for the continuation of the previous partnerships to surrender Gulen as the organizer of the coup. What do you think they will give out?
        By the way, here is an interesting opinion on the Turkish events from S. Lukyanenko (I give it in abbreviation): ".. the downed plane and the warlike rhetoric of Erdogan were so ridiculous and provoked such a sharp assessment by Putin. Indeed - a stab in the back.
        But why?
        A plot is brewing in Turkey. Erdogan is aware, but there is no evidence, the military is also afraid.
        And here our planes are at the borders. One of the participants in the conspiracy, without the approval of Erdogan, gives the faithful people an order to bring down the plane. What for?
        But why:
        1. The conflict between Russia and Turkey will begin - the army will take power by virtue of martial law.
        2. Erdogan will begin to apologize - the army will take power because the ruler is weak and a traitor.
        3. Erdogan will begin to swear with Russia - the army will take power, because the ruler is crazy and brought the country to conflict, hit the economy and is generally not adequate.
        Erdogan understands everything. But he has no choice - he chooses the third path. However, he tries to release everything on the brakes and slowly reveals the participants in the conspiracy. Trying to contact Putin and explain what is happening. It does not work out right away.
        But in the end, through the mediation of Israel (I had to make peace with him), the information was conveyed. Half-hearted apologies and a certain softening of the situation follow. In our opinion, it seemed like there were apologies, in the opinion of the Turks - regrets. But everyone is as if satisfied. Erdogan is back on horseback; conspirators are forced to start a rebellion not in the best conditions.
        But Erdogan is already waiting for this. He escapes arrest, the faithful units strike at the rebels (it is possible that there was some help from outside too - information from Mossad, or something else).
        The mutiny is suppressed. "

        By the way, your humble servant assumed something similar immediately after the incident with our bomber, but with this version here, in VO, he was fiercely minus smile

          09.51. It seems that Erdogan is still the player. Plots of political plays are known. Someone is a director, someone in the role of an artist. Apparently Erdogan either marks the directors or knows the scripts well. So maneuver in politics! If you are a rag, your feet will be rubbed against you. If straight as scrap, then you will not live long.

          It’s not true since it was prepared, firstly Turkey made scandals on every flight before and through diplomatic channels escalated the situation to the very limit which culminated in the subsequent plane, secondly American avax possibly gave target designation to the fighter, and this is also international interaction albeit within the framework of NATO, and according to rumors, there were already prepared search groups in the fall territory with the appropriate equipment to capture pilots and counter rescuers, and much more that required a high level of organization that the conspirators could not show in Ankara. So you can fool yourself, but nothing changes from that.

        In fact, the United States removed almost all of its aircraft from this airfield in the spring, in my opinion in April. Then the truth was returned a few, but not all. It seems that the states knew in advance that something would happen in Turkey. Or planned a coup?

          No, just at that time 5 km. from the base, there was a serious slaughter of Turks with Kurds.
          And now it’s not calm there, if this term is appropriate in relation to the vicinity of the base ... The whole country is on the ears

      If they shut off and de-energized the US air base, then there was reason to believe that they were involved in the coup. Erdogan himself at a press conference at the airport said that this order came from Pennsylvania.

      Incirlik: Erdogan intends to cleanse Turkey from the Americans?

      In an attempt to carry out a coup d'etat in Turkey, military personnel of the Incirlik base, on which NATO troops, mainly American, are located, are involved.
      In other words, Erdogan continues to play his anti-American card. He previously stated that the coup was led by an opposition preacher Gulen, who is in exile in the United States. Of course, it is impossible to completely exclude the American trace in the events in Istanbul and Ankara, however, if it was present, it is in a very limited form. Perhaps they tried to do something dissatisfied with the policies of Kerry, the State Department. Most likely, Erdogan himself staged a coup to clean up all pro-American politicians, military, judges and prosecutors. Erdogan began pursuing a policy of disagreement with the United States when he fired Davutoglu, now the revolutionary performance looks like a logical continuation of anti-American politics. The key point will be the question of the fate of Incirlik base, where the Americans store nuclear warheads and stationed 2000 of their military. The issue of closing or opening military bases is very difficult to solve diplomatically, which is why NATO wants to deploy 4 of its battalions in Poland and the Baltic states - this is a kind of amulet against the excessive influence of Russian diplomats on these countries. A similar situation with the NATO military base in Turkey is only the opposite. Accusing the U.S. military of being involved in a coup is a great way to close the U.S. military base. Whether Erdogan will succeed or not is not yet clear, however, it is quite obvious that it is beneficial for Russia to play on the contradictions of Turkey and the USA, imaginary or real.

      Almost like in the movie "The Diamond Arm": "... and whoever" putsch "or somehow fart - turn off the light ...". They turned it off and the mutiny was suppressed. True, someone fled somewhere on the Laiba, and someone went to Greece by helicopter, but the bulk of them were publicly flogged, the shoulder straps were torn off, and the prison bars. The rating of the Turkish Sultan has grown by as much as 5%.

      Turkey without states will not sail as far as Erdogan wants. And he really wants to.

      But as soon as Belarus allegedly refused to Russia to establish a base in Baranavichy, it began - the traitors, Judas Lukashenko, sold out to the West, brothers and other husks lol
      Gentlemen, do not apply double standards wink
      My personal opinion is that I am for the creation of such a base because there are inadequate resources around (Poland, the Baltic states, Ukraine), and we do not have oil and gas to keep decent air forces from the sale, and BelAZs, MAZs, tractors don’t really buy it (crisis in the world). And it seems that the story is one for two, experienced in the last hundred years in common. But even if we would agree to create a base, are we also political impotents? belay
      PS. Moreover, Turkey is a member of the US manual alliance under the nickname NATO, and if the lord says, then the slaves will not use one base, but all. So here everything is relative hi

          He holds a country with small resources, it’s a sin to talk about his venality. He is a great friend of Russia (and Ukraine too), he never led to the west, he never forgot that he had Slavic roots.

    The military, attributed to Incirlik’s NATO base, are involved in an attempted armed coup in Turkey. This was announced today in the country's Foreign Ministry. The special operation against the rebels at the base has already been completed.

    This was announced on July 16 by the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, the SkyNews Arabia television channel reports.

    It was not the United States that suspended it, but Turkey forbade everything to hell. Here, literally in the near future we will find out the reaction of the authorities to the American participation in the coup. There are several possible options, everything will depend on Erdogan’s rooftop, in an attempt to take revenge on his offenders

    Erdogan is a hysteric, he does some things at first, then he thinks. Now it’s cooled down and everything will fall into place with Amer! Just understand the man so much, that is, he’s overdid it, that’s a bit to the side! He won’t swear with mattresses he loves, it will turn out to be more expensive, even worse than a quarrel with Russia.
