US withdraws F-15 Eagle warplanes from Incirlik base in Turkey

The US has withdrawn its F-15 warplanes deployed to the Incirlik airbase in southern Turkey, the US European Command Headquarters EUCOM said Wednesday. The Air Force F-15 Eagles and Strike Eagles deployed to Incirlik are returning to RAF Lakenheath, UK, according to a statement. The six F-15Cs arrived November 6 and“conducted training and operational missions supporting Turkish allies and their sovereign airspace,” the military said. The six F-15Es followed on November 12 to conduct counter-Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) operations in Syria and Iraq as part of Operation Inherent Resolve. US Air Force A-10s, remotely piloted aircraft and other Coalition aircraft will remain at Incirlik conducting counter-IS missions.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that Turkey is about to live up to its name – especially as Christmas approaches – and be sacrificed on the altar of the NWO?
    Syria is in virtual ruins but Turkey is relatively unscathed. I think all that is about to change. Turkey’s association with NATO is about to come back to haunt them.
    Much good has it done them. Much good will it do them.

      I agree that it is very likely Aldous. Turkey have proved clumsy and awkward at handling international dirty tricks, getting caught and found out every time, even implicating the US and Israel. At the time, I wasn’t sure how the game was being played, but if it wasn’t supposed to happen, then they’re certainly in the naughty corner.
