U.S. May Need to Send Marine Division to Syria to Defeat Turkish Invasion

Turkey's defense minister has plans to attack Syria if U.S. troops remain. They want to kill Kurds in Syria who are U.S. allies. Though direct military conflict with a N.A.T.O. member isn't good, it may be necessary. If so the United States should deploy a marine division to Syria ASAP.

Turkey was historically an enemy of the United States. Turks were on the German side of the First World War and would have sided with Hitler if they had thought they could get away with it. Turkey was worried sufficiently by the Soviet invasion threat to become a N.A.T.O. member, yet after the cold war ended the communist danger with its conclusion Turkey became an alien in N.A.T.O. serving to divide Euro-American interests in foreign policy. They only very reluctant allowed U.S. military forces access to the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Now they are endangering and threatening the security of U.S.troops and national friends who were journeyman warriors in the conflicts in the region for more than a decade.

Turkish leadership has so little respect for the United States and friends that they use abusive ultimatum style language to order U.S. forces to hurry up and leave or they will just go ahead to invade Syria and kill Kurdish allies. Only Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and possibly Representative Ocasio-Cortez would like that.
