2008 Security Pact Between Iran and Turkey Should Call Into Question Turkey’s NATO Membership

A security pact signed in 2008 between Turkey and Iran should call into question Turkey’s membership in NATO.

Given that most of NATO’s members have some level of sanctions imposed on Iran and given that Iran has attacked US and NATO forces indirectly through proxies in Iraq and Afghanistan, there is simply no excuse for a NATO member having a security agreement with the world’s foremost sponsor of Jihadist terrorism.

This should not be tolerated. Turkey must be forced to choose between NATO and Iran.

It is by no means certain which side Turkey is on. After all, Turkey refused to allow the US Army’s 4th Mechanized Infantry Division to travel through its territory during Operation Iraqi Freedom, greatly complicating US strategy and probably allowing the insurgency to flourish faster and more than it should have in the wake of the US overthrow of Saddam Hussein…
