US should impose sanctions on Turkey for its brutal human rights abuses.

That’s how they/the Turks ruled for centuries in Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia, the Balkans and everywhere else. Turkey was back then and still is today Brutal and barbaric like ISIS.

When did attacking Turkey become a bad thing? Maybe we need to rethink this fundamental assumption. The whole reason we put Turkey into NATO was because they used to follow orders when the US wanted something done. Those days are over. Just kick them out of NATO and put Erdogan and his party on the terrorist list. Turkey is a problem that could be solved with some drone attacks. Let them back into NATO when the country learns how to behave.

Turkey is absolutely the wrong partner here and has weakened the fight against ISIS/ISIL by attacking the sole effective U.S. allies in the region.. namely the Kurds. Absolutely ridiculous. Once again Obama and Kerry show they have no grasp of what is happening on the ground.

Maybe the answer in the Middle East is to remove all males from the negotiating process. Move them on to their Cazbars to share goat stew and empower the women of the desert lands, who often appear to suffer the greatest indecencies, to facilitate the negotiation process towards peace.

He’s not. If Obama was after Assad, Assad would be dead by now. We allow Assad to live, and Assad lives at our will.

There is no doubt that the Turkish intelligence agency was behind the massacre of 30 Kurdish civil activists in Suruc city. This massacre was planned by the Turkish government to break down the peace process in Turkey. The Turkish government was never been serious to find a solution for the biggest case in Turkey which is the Kurdish case. The peace process was taken seriously only by PKK but was never been taken by the Turkish politicians seriously but only to show to the European union that Turkey is in a democratic process while Turkey the reality is a the Turkish government is always dominated by chauvinists throughout the last 100 years.
Now US is still supporting the policy of denying Kurish rights in the whole Kurdistan and fueling the dictatorship of the Turkish chauvinists against Kurds. The US will betray Kurds again and the US will go to be against the biggest nation on the world seeking their rights to be independent and free. The US under the presidency of a confused government will be on the side of ISIS and Tureky against secularism in the middle east. Congratulation for the US to fight beside ISIS and Turkey against the Kurdish women and men fighters very soon.
