I highly doubt Turkey will be kicked out of NATO. NATO has nvested too much into Turkey. Its an important strategic position on the Strait of the Dardanelles and the Black Sea on the front line with Russia. In order for Turkey to stop being a member of NATO it has to want to leave and give their official notice. NATO has no mechanism to remove member states as of this moment. NATO alliance members could review and amend the NATO document but I think it would be rather difficult to get all the members on the same page. I suspect Turkey will remain a member but in name only.

The Turkish military is shelling one of our points on #SereKaniye Border with Turkey. There were no injuries to our forces.
We didn't respond to this unprovoked attack. We are prepared to defend the people and the people of NE #Syria.

During a Tuesday meeting with SDC members, State Department officials stressed that the Sunday statement was not a green light for Turkey to invade, & any attacks on the Kurds would be met by harsh economic and political sanctions. My latest @ForeignPolicy https://t.co/EG4F2xmdRr

PENTAGON STATEMENT @ChiefPentSpox: "Unfortunately, Turkey has chosen to act unilaterally. As a result we have moved the U.S. forces in northern Syria out of the path of potential Turkish incursion to ensure their safety. We have made no changes to our force presence in Syria."

US defense official tells me even after today's convoy into Iraq & the earlier pushes out of the safe zone and out of Manbij, the majority of US forces that have been deployed to #Syria are still there. Another defense official said coalition landing zone in #Kobani still open
