Brian Klaas quotes

If Erdoğan adopts the death penalty for the coup plotters that will obviously poison relations with the EU, but certainly the United States cannot have the death penalty be the red line because many US states have it. So while John Kerry might not lecture Erdoğan on the death penalty, he will lecture him on violations of democracy, rule of law and things like beating soldiers who are alleged to be part of the plot.feedback

The cracks between Turkey and the west is not good for the fight against terrorism because you need a close relation as possible from the strategic allies, rather than bickering. So there's no real good that's going to come out of this.feedback

He's going to become much more paranoid. This happens almost always with coup attempts that fail, that there is nearly always a subsequent refocusing on the domestic consolidation of power and that takes the regime's focus away from foreign policy battles and fights.feedback

But Turkey is in a geostrategically-important location at a time when that location is exceptionally important for international security between terrorism, the collapse of Syria and the refugee crisis.feedback

Leaders try to decapitate their military and weaken it to make sure no individual general or force within the armed forces has an independent power base and that's not good for NATO's goals because it ultimately undermines their strategic ability to project power in Syria and against terrorism.feedback

NATO wants Turkey's military to be as powerful as possible, because it's a partner that's extremely strategically important for the fight in Syria. But at the same time Erdoğan has now seen the coup is a threat to his power base and his regime's stability and survival.feedback
