‘We don’t need you’: Erdogan accuses Washington of ‘sacrificing’ relations with Turkey

Here's a big question: what needed to happen so that the conditions would be set for a leader of a NATO-member nation to denounce the U.S.?


A failed military coup, no less. 


This is yet another manifestation of trying to maintain the controlled chaos (which is a really crazy theory, a tool which the Pentagon has been using) and an example of the Anglo-Saxon two-faced diplomacy:  the U.S. support of the Kurdish anti-Turkish elements and harbouring of the alleged organizer of the last year's coup, Fethullah Gülen, in the U.S. (similarly to how the CIA supported the Chechen terrorists, called "the Chechen freedom fighters" in the Western press back then, and how some of their leaders, later, were able to claim political asylum in the U.K.)

Erdogan also accused the US of hiding a suspect who is allegedly linked to cleric Fethullah Gulen – who Ankara blames for last year's failed military coup – inside its Istanbul consulate.


“The consulate employee sought by Turkish police is hiding in the US consulate,” Erdogan said, adding that worker is “clearly tied” to Gulen.




The first US consulate employee arrest took place last week, when Turkish citizen Metin Topuz was detained. The pro-government newspaper Daily Sabah reported that he was accused of “facilitating the escape” of “known Gulenists” from Turkey.


Topuz's arrest prompted the US embassy in Turkey to announce it was suspending “all non-immigrant visa services at all US diplomatic facilities,” stating that “recent events” had “forced the United States government to reassess the commitment of the government of Turkey to the security of US mission facilities and personnel...”



Turkey responded in a ######-for-tat move, releasing virtually the same statement as the American embassy, only replacing the country names. (:laugh: thereby Turkey @ Twitter has just reached Troll Level 1 LOL)



Ankara then issued an arrest warrant for a second consulate worker.
