“No Longer a Reliable Ally”

Gnaw on this all day.

Consider that this administration seems (?) have have done exactly nothing about it, nor even uttered a word one way or the other. The loss of a once-reliable ally changes everything, does it not?

And then take stock of where this country stands amid an ugly and hostile world.

Anyone else feeling fundamentally transformed?

    Reliable ally for whom, exactly? The more Islamist they get, the less they are a reliable ally for the United States, but they are increasingly reliable as an ally for B. Hussein Obama and his Islamist friends.

    Transformed? Absolutely. From the beacon of freedom and liberty for the world to an oppressive banana republic which persecutes political opposition with the full power of a weaponized government, to the delight of a lap-dog formerly independent press and a cluster of Stalinist hives that passes for higher education.

    What exactly would you have the US do? How precisely would you keep the Turkish president from aligning himself with the Islamists in his own country? He’s been pushed away for years for EU membership, and this is a logical response from his perspective–it’s not good for the US, but what exactly should the US do?
