Turkey is an Islamist dictatorship that sponsors and backs Islamic terrorists. It's also genocidally obsessed with the Kurds.
Erdogan, Turkey's Islamist tyrant, has massacred his own people, locked up police and judges, and is bent on massacring Kurds in Syria because as his rigged economy implodes, he wants to distract attention from his collapsing regime, and his son-in-law, with a little genocide.
His latest tantrum, aimed in part at America, President Trump and at National Security Adviser John Bolton, show why the United States should not make the mistake of dealing with the leader of an Islamic terror state.
And why Turkey should not be in NATO.
The only things that Erdogan can be counted on to do in Syria is...
1. Support those Islamic terrorists that his regime backs
2. Kill Kurds, including those allies with the United States
Whatever we should or shouldn't do in Syria, we should never make any kind of deal with Erdogan. The only thing that will do is humiliate us. Exactly the same way that Erdogan's Iranian pals humiliated Obama.
For Islamists like Erdogan, being able to insult and humiliate Americans is a fundamental part of their doctrine. Let's not let him do it.
