People and countries become dependent on handouts, i.e., welfare in any form....Turkey is apparently no different. This President is seeing to it that his country, America, is fairly treated and treats fairly in return.

The Turkish government has declared war on a Christian pastor. Trump is standing up for the man.

I doubt we will see liberals praise that action.

Trump is playing George Soros’s game, but for the people and not for himself.

Time to vacation in Turkey. I went there in May and July this year. What a bargain. Even Turkish Air is a cheap flight across the pond.

Turkey (Ottoman Empire) sided with Germany and fought against the USA in WWI.

Turkey signed a Mutual Aid Pact with France and Britain in 1939 but backed out when Germany invaded France.

In June 1941, after neighboring Bulgaria joined the Axis and allowed Germany to move troops through to invade Yugoslavia and Greece, Turkey signed a non-aggression pact with Germany.

Turkey was an important producer of chromite, which is a key ingredient in the manufacture of stainless steel. Turkey remained neutral so they could sell chromite to both Germany and the allies during the war. Turkey halted its sales to Germany in April 1944 and broke off relations in August.

Turkey declared war on the Axis powers in February 1945 when they saw which way the war was going.

Bottom line.... DON’T TRUST A TURKEY

I would love to see İstanbul again. A Turkish woman I know says my old neighborhood now is subsumed under the American Hospital that used to stand on the other side of our back wall in Nışantaş in 1954 and the pastoral valley I used to explore wıth my sister three blocks from the house is all high rises now. I found it on Google and it's true.

This makes me very happy and I don’t mind the temporary hit to my portfolio by Wall Street overreaction.

Trump is serving notice to autocrats worldwide that you will not jail or harm innocent US citizens without consequences. Little rocket man NORK was told in no uncertain terms that we would not permit another Otto Warmbier and he quickly came to the table.

More winning.

I worked with an Armenian-American builder years ago who lost family in The Armenian Genocide of 1915. He hated them. He said Turks will offer you a toast that goes “To you your honor’’. And after that he chuckled and added, “Because a Turk has none.’’

Erdogan assures that this a false panic, and if there is anything to panic about, its Trump's fault.

Turkey has said it will take reprisal action against the US. I would worry the Turks would start arresting Americans and holding them on any pretext as bargaining chips against the US.
