Turkey is a member of NATO, something Turkish leaders would do well to remember. I wrote a short and pointed letter to the Turkish Ambassador to the United States telling him Turkey needs to choose a side. It can either choose to come back to the world community that at least tries to achieve peace (even if it often goes about it in confounding, nonsensical ways), or it can ally itself with the extremists and terror supporters.
I urge Turkey to make the right choice, but am not optimistic that it will. The stakes have never been higher, and Turkey should be warned: America and its allies are watching closer than ever.
