I am so, so sick of these apes thinking they’ve a right to speak to their betters in this manner.
There is a time, before the bugmen, when these sorts of statements from a hostile state would be reason enough to invade this country, rape their women and steal everything they own before leaving a military occupation to use the population as slaves in mines and fields.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Washington of “sacrificing” relations with Ankara, and has blamed the ongoing diplomatic dispute on a US ambassador “who doesn’t know his place.”
“Let me be very clear, the person who caused this is the ambassador here. It is unacceptable for the United States to sacrifice a strategic partner to an ambassador who doesn’t know his place,” Erdogan told provincial governors in Ankara on Thursday, as quoted by Reuters.
Erdogan was referencing outgoing US Ambassador John Bass, whom the Turkish president previously accused of acting alone in the decision to suspend the issuance of visas to Turkish citizens, rather than on behalf of the United States government.
Erdogan reiterated that belief on Thursday.
“What a shame if the great United States of America is being governed by an ambassador in Ankara. Because this is the position they are holding. They should have said, ‘You cannot treat my strategic ally this way, you cannot act this way.’ But they couldn’t say this,” he said, as quoted by Anadolu Agency.
The US State Department has denied that claim, saying Bass had the “full backing” of Washington, and that his actions were coordinated with the department, the White House, and the National Security Council.
Erdogan went on to deliver a blunt message to Washington, saying “we do not need you.”
“We are not a tribal state. We are the state of the Republic of Turkey and you will accept it. If you don’t, then sorry but we do not need you,” he said, as quoted by Hurriyet.
It is we who do not need you.
If our leaders were not the likes of Ben Sasse, we could storm through your country like an army of Godzillas and burn your cities to the ground in a matter of days.
Obviously, the underlying problem here is the fact that the Trump team has cut funding for ISIS, which is Erdogan’s project.
