Theros is Right: End the U.S. Love Affair with Turkey

Regarding Amb. Patrick M. Theros’ op-ed piece, “Time to End the U.S. Love Affair with Turkey” I couldn’t have said it any better. Turkey unlawfully invaded Cyprus in 1974. Since 1984 through 1998 Turkish security forces have resorted to terrorizing 15 million Kurdish minorities.

Turkey sided with Germany in World War I against the Allies, England and France. In World War II, Turkey sided with Hitler by providing chromium which prolonged the war in Europe by several months. The Armenian Genocide in 1915 in which 1.5 million Armenians were murdered. They still use torture in their jails and have the worst human rights record in the world. The Smyrna Catastrophe in 1922.

Turkish violators of Greek airspace. They attack the Kurds in Syria who are our best ally against ISIS. I could go on, but Turkey is a bad ally run by a moron dictator.
