NATO and the US are no doubt weighing the pros and cons, and so far, the benefits of having Turkey in NATO weighs much more than the negatives of removing Turkey from NATO. I think John is also correct in that NATO prefers to wait and see how Turkey will develop after Erdogan.

Looking toward Turkish Forums and media, it's clear that the issue with Greece, Armenia and Kurds are the main thing that will swing Turkish Public sentiment whether to or out of West. So far many of them already feel back stab by West on those three matter.

On the other hand the opposition to Erdo Sultan also gaining momentum. That's what I believe why Erdo playing hard ball to West to regain constituents momentum back to his camp. I sense US and Western Europe power still playing careful here, not to give cause to give the momentum back to Erdo Sultan then the opposition.

That's why I believe the F-16V will be a litmus test on how US especially fell on Turkey. Are they want to cut ties now or continue playing waiting and baiting game with Erdo Sultan.

Add:
This's one of the reason Erdo Sultan opposition got momentum. Erdo known to have his own economic theorem. So far this is the results, free fall of Turkish Lira for one thing:

Well Sultan Erdo seems want to prove that Turkish downfall economic conditions will not deter his Political base. Turkish on his opinion and his fanatics supporters will not abandoned him. Sultan Erdo afterall the voice of wisdom and reason to bring back Turkish glory.

Sorry not trying to be political. Just couldn't understand how any nation leader still want to continue an economic policies that already proven to continue bring down his own country economic conondum. How stuborn you can get ?

He isn't extra special in that category. Mugabe of Zimbabwe had a similar outlook and Idi Amin of Uganda also had similar views, from memory.

Indeed, he isn’t the only dictator (IMO he is) that displays a cement head attitude. I guess part of this is any backtracking on previous stupidity will be seen as weakness.
 
Read the Tea Leaves wrong there, I'm not aligned with Iran. It is fair to Hypocrisy annoys me as does unilateral decisions to breach UN determinations. Sovereign Countries who stand up for themselves against Countries who take Global Laws into their own hands have my support, even if I don't agree with their internal Politics.
