This is coolbert:
Once more the use of the the air base at Incirlik by the combat warplanes of the American air force is questionable. The coalition effort against the combatants of the Islamic State is again in jeopardy?
Thanks to Freeper.
"'Turkey will close Incirlik airbase to US if support for YPG continues’ (Erdogan threatens US?)"
"Pro-government Turkish daily Yenisafak, has claimed that Turkey will use the Incirlik Airbase as a bargaining chip to stop the US from backing the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), a prominent force in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) leading the Raqqa operation"
Coalitions rarely if ever fight well. See also my previous blog entry the topic of which also was the threat to deny the use of facilities at Incirlik to American warplanes.
YPG SEEN AS A THREAT TO TURKISH INTERESTS.
That "bargaining chip" as perceived by Erdogan and a chip with rather large value too!!
