Turkey could close Incirlik air base in face of US threats: Erdogan

Turkey could shut down its Incirlik airbase, which hosts US nuclear warheads, in response to threats of US sanctions and a separate US Senate resolution that recognized mass killings of Armenians a century ago as genocide, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday. Turkey can also close down the Kurecik radar base if necessary, he added.

US could shut down Turkeys economy, if necessary. Wouldn't want that, now would we? How would the US cope without the air base? It would hurt, but I guess there might be alternatives. How would Turkey cope without US? Don't care.
