Dear Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: Saving NATO from Turkey

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Oct 19, 2017 at 01:56

Dear Dr. Pipes,

  1. Do you really think that NATO countries (most of whom are demographically dying) can secure themselves without the bulwark of Turkey ?
  2. Think what would happen to the security to the region, if Turkey joins hands with Russia, China and Iran to kick the US out of the region ?
  3. Do you think kicking out Turkey out of NATO would result in the US being kicked out of the entire West Asian and North African region ?

Daniel Pipes replies:

  1. They can only secure themselves by resisting Turkish aggression.
  2. Maybe Europeans would finally wake up?
  3. Turkey cannot be kicked out of NATO. But no, I think the US position will be enhanced among all those worried by Turkish aggression.
