    With all the Turkey-bashing in the media today, one sometimes has to wonder whether or not some of these reporters and pundits ever finished high school or ever had a basic history course.

    It’s granted that Erdogan is no boy scout. But these pundits must realize that Turkey is a member of NATO since 1952, and that there exists such a thing as Article 5 — Collective Defense. Do they know what that means? Hell, to listen some of them in the media today, they’re ready to declare war on Turkey.

    • Ah, yes, another one of those “promises” by Donald Trump during the campaign which he has completely turned around. All of that huffing and puffing about NATO was for the cameras, and if you believe the U.S. needs NATO with Turkey in it, I’ve got a bridge to sell you. Turkey and its “leaders” were never prosecuted for their role in the Armenian genocide. Why? Why instead did we reward them with NATO membership? Why would anyone consider that country part of Europe? Erdogan promises to be far worse than Assad.

Hillary was an obvious disaster, but Trump promises to be a major disappointment. Go ahead and call me whatever you want if it comforts you, but don’t try to sell Trump as messiah to any thinking American! He’s somewhere between Augustus and Claudius for sheer Roman scale corruption. On second thought, at least THEY were competent.

        I do happen to agree with you about Erdogan. He will make Assad look like a choir boy. I do not, however, believe that POTUS acutally meant to turn around. Shortly before we bombed the ‘chemical weapons’ arsenal in Syria, but Potus & Tillerson said we were going to leave Assad alone. Then, most likely thanks to some of his advisers, a total about face. IMO, we need to leave Assad alone. Now there have been 2 fake chemical attacks, proven so, and links between the White Helmets and ISIS. This, however, does not fit the narrative of the neocon, globalists, and think there are too many close to POTUS. And I am not a troll. Far from it. I worked my a** off for POTUS, and will support him at every opportunity, but I will not support those who have managed to get his ear who are out to destroy us. The Deep State.

          Comparing Erdogan to Assad is blatantly inaccurate. Erdogan is positioning himself to be the next Caliph – seeking to recreate the Ottoman Empire. At its peak it included:
          Turkey Egypt Greece Bulgaria Romania Macedonia Hungary Palestine Jordan Lebanon
          Syria Parts of Arabia and much of the coastal strip of North Africa.
          Hafez Assad drove the Muslim Brotherhood out of Syria. Syria’s current President is secular, and the duly elected Leader of a sovereign nation.

        It was a very different Turkish government, Greek government (there is a delicate relationship between and around the two that the WWII allies and NATO had to deal with), and world political/security situation in 1952, than in the last approx. 20 years. The nation of Turkey is our NATO ally, with its strategic geography and formerly great place in the world of modern, moderating Islam. Erdogan, on the other hand, is a usurping tyrant, turning one of the more progressive (in the positive, dictionary sense) GME nations and regions into just another MB pisslamic shariaithole.

        That said, if anyone can make a deal to get the Kurds a long-term lease on some land and life and also get Turkey back on a track to prosperity, rather than medieval hell, I think our master real estate mogul, PDJT, is the guy to git ‘er dun! I suspect the main thrust of this meeting will be completely America 1st, security of our assets at Incirlik, and groundwork for cooperation to get Syria tamped down, without significant USA manpower. The “trimmings” will get worked through in follow-up.

          Speaking of 45s, remember the little swirly-looking insert you’d snap into the middle of the 45 to play it on a turntable designed for 33s? It’s also a symbol of the Stax and Volt records of Memphis soul music fame (see digression below). Sam Moore wore a gold 45 insert medallion when performing at PDJT’s inauguration–big props to POTUS 45 and Sam Moore, as well as all those other great troubadours of truth!

          Digression: look Stax up and if ever in the area, don’t fail to visit the Stax Museum–kinda iffy seeming neighborhood, but not really and there’s good parking in the rear–among many many musical and cultural wonders, you’ll see the beautiful reality of how desegregation was and would have worked naturally and humanely, had the imperious fed not overstepped its constitutional power to force black America onto a new, tax-funded Demonrat plantation.

            I always wondered about those inserts. Why design 45s with a gigantic 2 inch hole when LPs had a tiny 1/4 inch hole? And everybody on Earth played both formats on the same record player. Did the guy who made the inserts bribe the designer of the 45? I’ll bet jukeboxes were t blame.

              Yep, jukeboxes! 78s existed before and contemporaneous with 45s, but used the small center hole, because not intended for automated play–precise centering is necessary for proper play, especially with larger discs. 78s were too thick and heavy, afaik, to be used with the later “changers” designed for 33s, but thanks to a more customer-centric business model than what we have in most tech today, audio equipment and “software” manufacturers maintained the standard small spindle for all formats with adapters to allow home play of 45s.

    In order to get a catalog of a country’s leader, you have to talk with them and deal with them. I frankly do not want any muslims here because the real Qu’Ran is perfectly clear to murder we infidels. Nevertheless, some muslim countries have to be heard and dealt with on this planet, and Trump is smart enough to know who, what, why and how they think and act. I once upon a time desired to visit Turkey for the old Sophia church, but lost that desire years ago. The Ottoman Empire is gone and a closed-minded dictator in Erdogan rules. I value my life and will not visit any muslim country, except Malaysia because believe it or not a lot of Catholic Churches there and where we attended was the cathedral just a few minutes from our hotel and it was wonderful. Not that Malaysia is super happy to have any church there because islam is a cult and not a religion! I hate it when everyone calls it a religion as has no connection with our God but a moon goddess and Mohammed the murderer, rapist, etc., etc. As an ally, who really knows, but others see Turkey in a bad light so murder people on their territory, even visitors from other countries’ officials.
