Erdogan – Has he become over confidant?
Dear Readers, It has been quite a day. Erdogan made a huge mistake with an over response to a park closing protest in Istanbul. Some of the hard core tear gas used has ‘Made in America’ on it.
I just can’t believe that we are exporting crowd suppression material to foreign countries.
You as well hand out pistols to all the State Dept. people and say, “Go ahead and shoot yourselves now because we are going to make your jobs so miserable to do you will want to shoot yourself.”
The gaff has now sparked protests across the country at a really bad time when Turkish support for the Syrian insurgents has now revealed al-Nusra terrorists with Sarin nerve gas roaming around after the multiple car bombings. It did not take the folks there long to catch on to the Frankenstein that we created is on the loose there now.
What you are about to read below is hard to believe. John Kerry is getting out in front of the issue, for some reason, by calling for an investigation of ‘excessive use of force’ by Turkish police. Gosh…talk about getting involved in someone’s internal affairs???
Have they all gone nuts at Foggy Bottom? I can just imagine the blistering comments being made tonight by the Erdogan people about the American betrayal.
But you can add to that the Syrian Revolution General Commission (SRGC) is leaving the Syrian National Council, of which it had been a major member. The short story on why is complaints of media hogging as the top priority of the SNC leaders, and their openness to compete for support from certain foreign interests.
So it looks like the beginning of the SNC unraveling as the brakes have been on resupplying them trying to cool things down a bit.
The American taxpayers are on the way
Back at home we learn that the Patriots and F-16s going to Jordan for a large military exercise with a strange mix of countries participating, they are going to remain there when the exercise is over.
Don’t ask me who is going to be paying. You already know…you, your kids and grand kids. But don’t feel bad, the justification is that State want the rebels to sleep well at night in their safe havens.
And lastly, the Russians report that they are moving their only aircraft carrier, the Admiral Kuznetsov with its crew of 2000, to join the Med fleet. BTW, it carries a lot of missiles. I bet they are the best that the Russians have.
So get your pocketbooks out and put a little into the Syrian regime change hat when it gets passed around. And don’t forget that anything the Israelis shoot off or loose during any shoot ups, they will not be paying for anything. Your AIPAC controlled Congress has already volunteered all of you folks to cover it all.
