The German government has decided to withdraw troops from Turkey’s Incirlik Airbase.

Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen said on Wednesday that German troops stationed in the Turkish base would be moved to a military facility in Jordan over the coming months.

Earlier this week, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel failed to resolve differences between the two countries over the request of German lawmakers to visit their troops stationed in Incirlik. The Ankara government opposes to teh German lawmakers will to do this.

    Flinten-Uschi calls her boys back …. The best thing she can do.

      Unfortunately it is not bringing her boys back but a relocation of NATO in the ME. If the situation keeps developing as we are seeing on the Syrian / Iraq border don’t be surprised if Daesh and all its affiliates and supporters are driven west through the 2 US bases in SE Syria back into Jordan from whence it came including US special forces. This will not be good for Jordan but if you live by the sword of Imperialist you will die by the same sword.

    Good. It will help Turkey distancing itself from NATO. Eventually it may lead to Turkey leaving NATO altogether.
