A few news items via Veterans Today. This entire story is unfolding, I’m sure, to “work things out” in the Middle East, in the end, hopefully, for the benefit of all humanity. I’ve known several people who originated from Turkey, and know that, just like the US, the people are not necessarily the same as the ones who “head up” the government.
“John McCain likely to kiss Erdogan’s behind in Senate washroom. It seems that US President Barack Obama is not eager to meet with his Turkish counterpart.
“Obama has rejected Erdogan’s request to participate in a joint event and the US leader has no plans to have a one-on-one meeting with his the Turkish president.”
“Editor’s note: With Obama banning Erdogan from the White House, this move is to remove American military families from Erdogan’s grasp. What is really at risk is NATOs nuclear arsenal in Turkey which is in real danger of falling into the hands of the Islamic radicals now controlling the Turkish government.
“The Pentagon has ordered dependents of US military personnel in Turkey to leave the country, as Washington issued a new travel advisory for Americans traveling there.
Turks pursue their security goals under the guise of supporting war refugees and humanitarian aid and today we see terrorists easily go anywhere in Europe and are able to do whatever crime they want. This is the result of Erdogan’s designed plan for making Europe need Turkey which is irresponsible and dirty.
“Most families — 670 of the 770 Defense Department dependents in Turkey — will be affected by the decision,” Cook said, adding that the evacuations will “move quickly.” US military personnel in Ankara and Istanbul will not be evacuated.”
“Referring to Turkish achievements from European negotiations after the refugees crisis began, in a dialogue with the journalist of the newspaper Time, an expert in Foundation for Science and Politics of Germany Dr. Gunter Sufert said: “Turkey understands that EU alone can’t protect its borders. In the past Turkey was a candidate for EU membership and weak in comparison with Europe, but with the refugee crisis the situation reversed because Europe today needs Turkey more.”
“Turks pursue their security goals under the guise of supporting war refugees and humanitarian aid and today we see terrorists easily go anywhere in Europe and are able to do whatever crime they want. This is the result of Erdogan’s designed plan for making Europe need Turkey which is irresponsible and dirty.”
“The army of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is currently fighting in Syria, but the country is ready to respond to the aggression, Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an exclusive interview with Sputnik.
“Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia, have “crossed all possible red lines, possibly from the first weeks of the Syrian war,” Assad said. “Today, the war against Erdogan and against Saudi Arabia is a war against terrorists. The Turkish army, which is not even Turkish, is Erdogan’s army that is fighting today in Syria,” he added.
“Everything that Ankara and Riyadh “have done from the very beginning can be considered aggression. Aggression in a political sense or in a military sense – providing terrorists with arms – or direct aggression with the use of artillery, and other military violations,” he stressed.”
