So the Turks haven't apologised or shown any regret for shooting down a Russian Jet. But have made a statement that if Russia and N.A.T.O. forces
continue to act independently then these things will occur. The Statement is interesting as Turkey is a member of N.A.T.O Regarding the bases they
seem to say they are unacceptable that close to their border. If they are unacceptable are we looking at some angst with regards to Turkey and N.A.T.O
if so the statement seems to include the new American Base, as well as the Russian one.
Furthermore With the Americans accepting the Kurds as allies, and taking over the base, Turkey as a sworn enemy of the Kurds, seems to show a split
in the N.A.T.O alliance as far as Turkey is concerned. Has Turkey been shafted?
