    But is Turkey's air force seriously so shitty they don't know how to avoid those? Those are mainly a danger to commercial airliners.

    Also who says the us gave the Kurds manpads? Pretty sure we only gave them light weapons, anti tank at best. It's not like they need surface to air missiles to fight isis.

    Nah they routinely call and interact with Turkey to try and cool them off but allowing Turkey build another ISIS out of its rebels is something the CIA and US forces would have to incompetent to do. I get the speculation on the MANPAD gifts, it doesn't seem like one administration prided on fighting terrorism like Trump's would overlook.
    The US intelligence knew about Turkey's aid to ISIS long before it broke press.
    The foreign affairs department still has to try and reassure or possibly lay down the law calmly to Erdogan and Rex having no translator there kinda confirms it for me. This isn't the end of US support for SDF vs Turkey, it is another lip service meeting to try not lose a NATO partner to sell to.

    Why are Turks such idiotic fags though? Is it just culturally ingrained or what?
