A blood bath guarantees the US will have to break off Turkish relations. Probably cancelling arms deals and placing sanctions on Turkey. Look for F-35 delivers to be stopped if not the Turks tossed off the program.

Kurds will have another reason to revolt internally against Turkey and hate them for another 100 years. Turkey couldn't be satisfied with the Armenian slaughter, they have got to have a new century's worth of ethnic blood.
