I think you got this totally backwards. It's Turkey who is starting a war.

Can I ask, since you are a Trump supporter, does some of your acceptance of Trump's authoritarian streaks as just sort of "there he goes again" carry over into your opinions of other authoritarian leaders around the world? I mean, here we are where Erdogan is starting a war with the groups that beat the shit out of ISIS at our behest, and you don't seem very concerned with Erdogan at all. I'm curious as to whether you see yourself giving him the benefit of the doubt since he has some Trump-like characteristics.
