Well no. Turkey should not continue to attack US allies (Kurds), as that would be really stupid.

I'd go further and say, that Turkey launching a hopeless military campaign to distract from domestic issues is going to end in tears for Turkey, and simply drag more Kurds into the PKK.

People forget that Turkey has a conscript army and is fighting hardened Kurd fighters. When it gets its arse kicked by the Kurds, Turkey will become both politically toxic to NATO and also militarily toxic to NATO.

My title, "Turkey Should Attack US Targets" was unclear. "Ash Carter says that Turkey should obey the US" would have been clearer.

Here's a little more gibberish to add to the confusion:
