    Expel them from NATO.

    • Observe&Report

      And deport them from Europe for good measure.

    • Andrew Allison

      The NATO treaty, like the EU’s provides no mechanism for expulsion.

      Expel them, then when it is finished…leave NATO….

  • FriendlyGoat

    Russia is led by a deluded nut. Turkey now also is. Shall we join the club, elect ourselves one and trust “the boys” to work things out?

    • f1b0nacc1

      Putin is many things, deluded isn’t one of them. I suspect that Erdogan, while vile, is hardly insane, merely ambitious and power-hungry. Such men are far more dangerous when we write off their desires as insanity.

        Yep.

        Evil or bad is not the same as irrational or insane. Underestimating evil people’s intelligence is a mistake.

      And that’s why I’m voting for Donald, to make sure we don’t elect a deluded nut. Glad we are on the same page. Although I think the problem in Turkey has a simple solution. Confiscatory taxation above some random, made-up limit. That should solve everything in a matter of months.

    Thirty thousand people are assembling in Cologne now for a demo in support of Ergogan. He was supposed to send a live video message, but the German Constitutional Court wouldn’t allow it.

    Europe problems with Turks in their mist just started. This is only a fight between two Jihadi thugs – Edoganists and Gulenist.- groups. Just wait until The Turkish civil war between Turks and Kurds commences. Current migrant crises will look like a picnic in the park. Imagine 30 to 50 million Turks and Kurds walking into Greece, Bulgaria Or even Georgia.
    Europe better be prepared for what’s coming next. Is not going to be pretty

    A summit between President Trump, Putin and Erdogan would represent a unique moment in modern civilization; if we can still call it that.
