Is a New US Mideast War Inevitable?

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Patrick J. Buchana

Said supreme commander Gen. Douglas MacArthur: "The Turks are the hero of heroes. There is no impossibility for the Turkish Brigade."

President Harry Truman awarded the brigade a Presidential Unit Citation.

In 1951, Turkey ended a neutrality dating to the end of World War I and joined NATO. In the seven decades since, there has been no graver crisis in U.S.-Turkish relations than the one that erupted this week.

Turkey has just received the first components of a Russian S-400 air and missile defense system, despite U.S. warnings this would require the cancellation of Turkey's purchase of 100 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.

"The F-35 cannot coexist with a Russian intelligence collection platform that will be used to learn about its advanced capabilities," said the White House.
