Sketchy Erdogan Whines: “U.S. Waging Economic War Against Turkey”….

In what can only be described as the nonsensical rantings of an ideologue who refuses to even fathom the geopolitical Trump changes around him, Turkish President Recep Erdogan writes an op-ed in the New York Times to tell Americans POTUS Trump, and like-minded allies, are bullying/destroying the Turkish economy because his authoritarian regime has imprisoned an American pastor.

DUH!

This is not difficult to figure out.  Release American pastor Andrew Brunson, and President Trump will consider stopping. Keep the U.S. citizen detained and President Trump will continue destroying the Turkish economy.  This is not hard to figure out once you accept the United States is unapologetically going to target any nation that targets American citizens.

President Erdogan is finding out that Brunson is the most expensive hostage in the history of hostage taking; however, with POTUS Trump in command it’s the kidnappers paying the price…. funny how that happens.

Further into Erdogan’s diatribe he warns: “a failure to reverse this trend of unilateralism and disrespect will require us to start looking for new friends and allies.” Again hilarious.

DO IT.  Please, DO IT.  Leave NATO and the U.S./Europe is no longer constrained to confront the extremist duplicity of Turkey.   Remember, when Turkey shot down the Russian fighter jet in November 2015?… then ran behind the skirt of NATO for protection against Russian retaliation.  Remember that?

Recep Erdogan now threatens to form closer relationships with Russia as retaliation for the way the U.S. and NATO allies are confronting his duplicity.  Hollow threats.  Remember when the Russian Ambassador to Turkey was killed by a Turkish jihadist shouting allahu akbar?

Between extremist Turkey shooting down the SU-24 (’15 )and then extremist Turkey killing the Russian ambassador (’16), it’s not like Russia would not welcome the opportunity for greater, shall we say, “influence”, with an intended goal of retribution.

From the Op-Ed:

…[…] “In recent weeks, the United States has taken a series of steps to escalate tensions with Turkey, citing the arrest by the Turkish police of an American citizen, Andrew Brunson, on charges of aiding a terrorist organization. Instead of respecting the judicial process, as I urged President Trump to do in our many meetings and conversations, the United States issued blatant threats against a friendly nation and proceeded to impose sanctions on several members of my cabinet. This decision was unacceptable, irrational and ultimately detrimental to our longstanding friendship.” …

Embrace the pain Erdogan; it is not going to stop.

…”He’s horrid, just horrid; there’s no telling what that, that man, will do next…. and the mean tweets are, well, just too much…. Too much.  But still… yet… it, his people seem to like him more than our own people seem to like us… how can this be? America this, America that, always with this America-First nonsense.. He’s horrible”…  “Junker even got smashed this morning because he couldn’t calm his nerves again. Poor man”… “The beast just terrifies all of us” …  “Shhhh, I think he’s coming”…

    “The US has to rehabilitate its addiction to sanctions & bullying or entire world will unite—beyond verbal condemnations—to force it to,” he wrote.

    “We’ve stood with neighbours before, and will [do so] again now,” Zarif said.

    Zarif had earlier offered support for Turkey following the imposition of the US sanctions.”

    VSGPDJT moves in the middle east and differentiating responses by leaders of supposed allies.

    I was somewhat surprised that the first foreign place visited by VSGPDJT was Saudi Arabia. In retrospect it seems like a very good move that is paying dividends. I remember an article which published the price of oil needed by various countries to maintain their gov’t spending levels due to the fact that oil was their main source of revenues. The statistics were based in a study by the international oil institute that was done when Obozo was in office or PDJT first year in office.

    The price of $70.00 a barrel was break even for Saudi Arabia and most oil producing nations, including the Russia. The oil industry in the U.S. Has been released and projections are that by 2019 the U.S. will once again have the potential to export quantities of oil and gas.

    I listed potential Saudi concerns as the following.

    Nuclear Iran. Safety of shipping in the straits. The rise of Turkey with dreams of re-establishing the Ottoman empire. The Iran, Turkey axis influence in the middle east. Russian involvement in Syria and cooperation with Iran there. Oil pricing with the re-emergence of the U.S. on the international stage of oil production, oil independence reducing markets for exporters and possible U.S. exports.

    Addressing Saudi concerns as I see them.

    Removal of Iran deal. Imposition of tariffs coming into play recently. Dispatching U.S. warship to the straights last week after reports of damaged shipping. Sanctions imposed on Turkey with continued and upgraded sanctions on Russia. Previous use of U.S. military force in Syria costing Russian lives. Rebuilding U.S. economy requiring higher oil use. Rise of the U.S. dollar mitigating oil pricing for exporters therefore reducing the $70.00 barrel pricing needs. Current price U.S. oil $67.00 but should continue down.

    Actions speak loudly:
    Saudi Arabia moved quickly to fill in to replace oil to China for potential losses of Iranian oil. Anybody notice China removed tariffs on oil? When a disagreement between them was in place Saudi moved quickly against Canada with as stiffest possible actions that they could take. Wonder where they will go to replace those items needed that were going to come from Canada? I’m thinking the Saudi’s are sending a clear message to PDJT while cheering his move in Turkey.

    Since I’m still a relative newbie at this site ( 2nd second week and how did I survive without it!) I apologize if this has been covered in greater detail already by others.

The State Department staff wouldn’t lift a finger. Not only that but most of that staff hates America and Americans at most embassies.

    Therefore to watch Trump collapse a muslim “ally’s” economy for jailing a Christian pastor is awe inspiring. I’m not sure many people understand what a powerful message this sends to the world.

      It’s not surprising that Embassy staff dislike Americans; the State Department largely draws from a few elite East Coast schools where political science is not so much taught as evangelized. I’ve got my undergrad in IR, and you would not believe my anger when I finally figured out that we what all our textbooks presented as fact was actually Liberalism.
      One theory among many. They never tell you what the other schools of thought are, except to either condemn them (Realism) or introduce elements from them without telling you what those theories are (Marxism and anti-colonialism are most prominent). Basically, the curriculum ferments this death-to-the-nation-state attitude we see with so many of our politicians.

      What are we supposed to do with our State Department when the only “acceptable” degree programs reside almost solely in DC universities? The whole system is incestuous, and deeply in denial about how badly its compromised its intellectual health.
