‘Me or terrorists?’ Furious Erdogan tells US to choose between Turkey and Syrian Kurds

Riled by a meeting between a US official and members of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which controls the Syrian town of Kobane, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has told Washington to choose between Turkey and, as he put it, the “terrorists.”

    Anything that pisses off Erdogan and the Turks is a good thing, so I hope they tell him to go to hell, that the US is going to continue talking to the Kurds whether he likes it or not. Probably won’t, unfortunately.

    The Turks are fond of mass repatriations. Here comes another one.

  • Kurd or Turd…….you decide.

    I’ll take the Syrian Kurds over a self-barbarizing shithole like Turkey, any day. We should give Russia carte blanche to deal with Turkey.

      Russia essentially has carte blanche, obama has tied the hands of the “free world” to a point where the “free world” is milling about shitting their pants.

    Erdog is a total musloon creep.

    The choice here is clear, except for Obama, who can be counted on to fuck up foreign policy even worse than it already is. I go with the consensus here.

    …Time to carve a piece of Kurdisdtan from the Turkey carcass…

  • T.C.

    Actually the question could simply be “Terrorists or the Kurds?”

  • Barney Sternfield

    No contest. Kurds win.

  • Maggat

    Poor Obama, he’ll have to make a choice, this muslim group or that muslim group. Good luck with that, asshole.

    Google the video of the horse kicking Erdogan in the nuts….it always sets me up….makes my day.
