John Kerry to Turkey August 21? Turkish Parliament Approves Deal with Israel
Speaks volumes about parties behind the coup.. If anyone else did catch news of Kerry's visit, please let me know?
Joe Biden is supposed to visit? According to CNN's latest reporting" Joe Biden to visit Turkey: Exiled cleric will be 'top of agenda'
When US Vice President Joe Biden visits Turkey on August 24, he'll no doubt have plenty to discuss with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Biden is an interesting choice for a visit to Turkey, because last time he showed up in Turkey he was very hostile and provocative. Kerry doesn't visit, at all, after the coup attempt and hostile Joe Biden is going? Let's take a trip down memory lane and recall Biden's last visit to Turkey: January 23/2016
***Biden shows "loyalty" to NATO ally Turkey- If your idea of loyalty is back stabbing duplicity! As I've informed my readers here, for well over a year now, Turkey is being targeted by it's NATO "friends" inc. the PKK. There are numerous posts on that subject here!
"Biden went on to meet with President Tayyip Erdogan, but an expected joint statement was not issued.
Biden: "He criticized the Turkish state for intimidating media, curtailing Internet freedom and accusing academics of treason" (Biden has chutzpah considering the state of the US media, internet and freedom in general)
Biden: "Last week, he denounced as "dark, nefarious and brutal" security forces briefly detaining 27 academics of more than 1,000 signatories of a declaration that criticized Turkish military action in the southeast"
"More recently, reforms have faltered and Erdogan has adopted a more authoritarian style of rule" (I've read those same memes "authoritarian/dictator/Hitler wrt Assad, Hussein, Gaddafi, etc)
"In an apparent rebuke, Erdogan told Biden on Saturday that he expected sensitivity from Turkey's allies and that they should avoid statements which may equate to support for those trying to hamper Turkish efforts to fight terror, presidential sources said"
Since Biden is sending a message of support to NATO's PKK terrorists he made no effort to avoid these multiple and very provocative statements! He wants his terror crew to know, the US has your back!I'll wager the visit will be both insightful and inciting
