Yeah, I don't see the point of allowing asshole countries into these agreements, if all that does is allow them to throw wrenches into progress while the body is unable to hold them to task. Why is it easy for sh*tty countries to be dicks, but impossible for good countries to pin them down?

The West is not going to have a war with Islam , or any religion. With certain things ? Yes. But we have many , many followers of the book - both Jewish and Islamic - that that cannot happen , unless we keep having idiots starting fires. We need to keep track of those with napalm who try and start them , because humanity depends on a careful watch. I am looking right at you , Myanmar and the Gulf States. And China.  Tread carefully.

The issue is the approximately 50 B61 bombs stored at Incirlik.

We kick Turkey out of NATO, they kick us out of Incirlik. While those devices are stored there, we kind of need to make sure we keep an eye on them.

That being said, it's beyond time we relocate those particular units.

I guarantee you there's a plan in place for that.

And it would either involve a strike that salted the earth around it in the process to destroy those weapons, or direct action in force to reclaim those weapons.

Also, they're absolutely useless otherwise without the PAL codes. Any attempt to disable the PAL system would destroy the nuclear package to begin with.

The issue is probably closer to the fact they control the Dardanelles and the Sea of Maramara. A few heavy lifters could clear out Incirlik. It'd take a lot more to reopen the Black Sea if Turkey was pissed at you.

Turkey was a relatively democratic and secular state willing to cooperate with the West during the Cold War. There was very much a desire to bring it into the West, but over the past 20 years or so Turkey has firmly moved in the other direction.

Plus its geographic location was extremely valuable in the strategic picture of the Cold War.

As for now, the North Atlantic Treaty does not provide any mechanism to forcibly remove a member.
