President Trump has begun a long-overdue recalibration of the role of Turkey in the NATO alliance. He recently signed into law legislation barring the United States’ front-line F-35 fighter aircraft from being delivered to the Turks after they confirmed their purchase of advanced Russian air defenses.

The acquisition of the sophisticated S-400 system from an adversary is just the latest example of how the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has become an ally no more.

Now that it’s being cut off from access to our military hardware, will Turkey come back into the fold — or become an even bigger problem for Europe and for us?

Since the Shariah-supremacist Erdogan is determined to reestablish Turkey’s imperial Ottoman caliphate, the smart money says he’s gone for good.

It behooves NATO formally to recognize that reality — instead of ignoring, and thereby enabling, it.
