A Turkish official says there is no new agreement with the United States on using an air base in southern Turkey for operations against the Islamic State group.

Turkey and the United States are still talking about the Incirlik air base as well as Turkish demands for the creation of a no-fly zone and a safe haven for refugees, the government official told the Associated Press on Monday. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the issue publicly.

I don´t understand Turkey´s position. Why do they have this position?

I understood ISIL already has a Turkish-Border town in Syria, Suruc. Does Turkey not see this as a threat or is their position to not strike until striked at?

 

I hope that AzerbayCan61 is not correct, I hope Turkey´s inaction has nothing to do with the Kurds.

It would be great. And while we are at it we could also close the military bases of christian invaders in Turkey.

Yes, you have to wonder about Turkey´s commitment to NATO.

 

But if they did get involved with this conflict, could make things worse and allow the conflict to spill inside Turkey.

I can see Turkey´s dilema. After a brief flirtation with the west they are beginning to reappraise their position.

Let´s take a look at what´s going on in Iraq and Syria.

Kurds: They rose to power and have become the de facto administrators of the vast regions of these two countries. They have armies trained by the West and they use American weapons. On paper America is an ally of Turkey via NATO. Yet, they backed the formation of Kurdistan which has long been a major threat for Turkey. Turkey has been fighting with the Kurdish seperatists for ages and all her allies know the country´s concerns and policies.

ISIS: We are talking about a major military power with unprecedented fire power and organization. This organization runs on tremendous amounts of money coming from all sorts of illegal channels and trades. The question is who created ISIS? Whose pawn are they? 

Turkey: Turkey has a long border with both countries and it directly suffers the consequences of the war. Turkey has so far accepted the largest number of refugees. She even let them travel around the country or find jobs where some Western governments were reluctantly offering to accept 800 or so of them.

America: America belongs here because they consider themselves as the world police. They have a right to invade, divide, partition sovereign nations just because they can do that. Let us not talk about moral values here. It is just a power game that takes place just because America wants a large chunk from the wealths of smaller nations.

One day, this will change there will be a new super power. Maybe China or God knows who. When that happens American people will remember the old days just like many Turks remember the Ottoman Empire. In this world, there is no lasting alliance or friendship.
