    Some people are underestimating Europe's ability to adapt to post-Turkey NATO situation. Several European states can go nuclear on a moment's notice (should the need arise).

    Hint for the wise: do not overestimate your importance and do not underestimate your partners.

    Turkey appears to be terribly confused in regards to its geopolitical role in modern times.

    France and UK can provide nuclear cover, if needed.

    Let's face it: Turkey wants to go its own ways on all matters, from defence to foreign policy. But it can't do it as member of NATO, which forces certain obligations on its members. I think Turkey will eventually leave NATO, just not today, but in a decade or so.

    Can anyone tell me one good reason as to why Turkey should stay in NATO when half the NATO is trying to rip it into pieces like they're doing in Iraq and Syria and the other half is indifferent to Turkey's problems?

    No, "so that we can play paintball with other NATO soldiers" doesn't qualify.

    Turkey should not leave NATO. Pulling out the 40 troops as a protest for the issue was enough to make a point. Turkey can still get a lot more benefits from being a NATO member.
