Joseph Blumenthal: Time to remove Turkey from NATO

Published: 10/28/2019 9:57:18 AM

If the situation weren’t so tragic, it would be laughable that after having surrendered U.S. interests in Syria to Erdogan, Assad and Putin, and abandoned our Kurdish allies there, President Trump has asked the Turks to stop the invasion and imposed sanctions on them.

But here’s one sanction which would be richly deserved that no one is talking about: After years of watching Erdogan move Turkey from democracy to autocracy and abandon any pretense of commitment to shared Western values, it’s time to remove Turkey from the NATO alliance.
