Oh wait a minute. He's heartless. Cruel. And always looking for a war for Israel.
My bad ;)
US National Security Adviser John Bolton has not ruled out that Turkey is a “foe” of the United States, blasting Ankara for maintaining a “very bad” relationship with Washington’s close ally Israel.
When asked by AM 970 radio host John Catsimatidis on Sunday whether Turkey was a “friend or foe” to the US, Bolton refused to give a straight answer and instead cited several major stumbling blocks in ties.
"Well you know they're still a NATO ally; we're trying to work with them, but they've got a very bad relationship with our close friends in Israel. That's something we need to look out on," Bolton said.
A war of words began between Turkey and Israel recently, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyau said the occupied territories only belong to the Jewish people and not all citizens.
Elsewhere in his Sunday comments Bolton said that disagreements "with respect to the conflict in Syria" were another issue affecting bilateral ties between the US and Turkey.
He said US President Donald Trump “would like to have a good relationship with Turkey; he’d like to see US trade with Turkey increase, but we need them to help us out in some of these other problems in Syria and elsewhere in the region.”As has been written here at PFYT's, for a long, long. long time now- Turkey and the US, Israel had a falling out over Israel 2.0 aka Kurdistan. It's been an ongoing issue since the Obama administration.
Which is why the fact the Christchurch shooter targeted Turkey in his manifesto jumped right out at me. It was so very 5/6 eyes.
