The USA is not going to leave Incirlik
The United States defense ministry (Pentagon) categorically denied the information about withdrawal of US troops from Incirlik base. According to the report published on official Twitter page, the Central Command stated, “American military forces will not be withdrawn from the Turkish air base and from Al Udeid air base in Qatar”. The Command considers the rumours about withdrawal groundless. “The information allegedly coming from the United States air base in Turkey and from Al Udeid air base in Qatar are far from the truth”. “Cooperative efforts are required to solve general security problems and such harmful reports might facilitate loss of credit and uncertainty between regional partners,” says the statement of the US Central Command. Not too long ago, information was spread about that following the drawdown of the US Air forces in Qatar, troops were being withdrawn from Incirlik base. In addition, Pentagon announced that it will decrease the number of operations against ISIS and will send its troops to Afghanistan to expedite the fight against Afghan Talibs.
After the “Cold War”, the question of strategic importance of the southern wing of NATO came up. However, after well-known events in the Middle East caused by awakening of the Islam Ummah, the intelligence base in Turkey gained strategic importance to the West again, especially for America. Leaders of Islamic countries gave the base to the West, and now it is being used against the Islam world. The United States managed to destroy thousands of Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria using this base. The question of withdrawal of troops from the base is the matter of life and death for the USA. Besides its intelligence mission, the base has a number of advantages for several reasons. Its geographic location enables the USA to avoid expensive and long-term military operations in the Middle East, which finally saves funds and gains time. American soldiers killing the Syrian people are not arriving by air from across the ocean. On the contrary, they come flying from neighbor Turkish base to deal death provided by traitorous government of Erdogan, and Arab countries supply it with fuel.
