Editorial: The US' buddy Turkey

 The US government refuses to stand up to Turkey.  They refuse to call it out.  For years, for example, the Turkish government has been bombing northern Iraq and killing civilians.  It's sent ground troops into Iraq.  And, yet, the US government refuses to call out Turkey.

Why is that?

It's worth noting this Tweet from Hassan Sajwani:

Turkey is fighting / in conflict with: Iraq
Flag of Iraq
Kurds UAE
Flag of United Arab Emirates
Flag of Syria
Yezidi Israel
Flag of Israel
Flag of Libya
Flag of Egypt
Flag of France
Flag of Cyprus
Flag of Greece
Flag of Armenia
Saudi Arabia
Flag of Saudi Arabia

Again, why is the US so reluctant to call Turkey out?
