#1 Well at least we know what the S-400 missile purchase was all about.

#4 Turkey has been the home of the international Muslim Brotherhood at least since 2013. However, the government which has been increasingly Islamicized is now threatened by the people who have voted out the Islamists in Ankara and Istambul. The US forces should not wait to be thrown out of Turkey but should instead be moved to the base north of Irbil and to Greece. Turkey, which now has no chance of joining the EU, has recently threatened Cyprus, and it should be put on notice that any action taken will be met by severe reprisals.

#7 Close the base and move it into Kurdish lands.

That will really piss off the Turks.

#9 Talk the Brits into sharing RAF Akrotiri, Crete and/or RAF Kingsfield, Crete and move there. Get the Turks off of Crete and stop their annexing the Easter Mediterranean as an added bonus.

#10 I can't find the twitter about it but last night it came out that the USA is building a new airport in Kurdistan (Iraq or Syria not clear) right on the Turkish border.

#11 There are no Turks on Crete, it is owned by Greece. I believe Magpie meant Cyprus, which is still partially occupied by Turks and has a large number of Turkish and British soldiers on it.
