    Well he's working hard to destroy Turkey. There are always a few who act like this under those sort of conditions.

    Nobody gives a crap about Turkey.
    Turkey's biggest foe are her own Muslims with their big ego and aggressive attitude.

    Well I hear you do not give a crap about Turkey. You are American. I am sure you can understand that given that Trump is trying to destroy Turkey some of the people of Turkey may feel violent to Americans.. It happens when for instance Israel attacks Gaza. Some people start blaming all Jews and likewise when there is a Muslim terrorist attack some people blame all Muslims. I was just pointing out that given that your country wishes to destroy Turkey, something which your reply would seem to suggest is your attitude, then do not be surprised if such things happen. They are to be expected.

    Trump doesn't want to destroy Turkey, he's just miffed that Turkey is buying weaponry from Russia rather than the US.

    He is deliberately destroying Turkey's economy. He was pretending it was because of some 'Paster' but that Sanders woman said they would still continue what they are up to even if they released him. Turkey hopefully will find a way out - outside of the dollar. It is just part of the US decline. That does not mean ordinary people in Turkey will not suffer.

    Well Erdogan isn't all sweetness and light; they're already suffering because of the sudden reforms he made about a year ago.

    I am not keen on Erdogan but this is just Trump doing it again trying to destroy whoever will not do his bidding. It will not be Erdogan who will suffer. I read his approval has gone up. It will be the ordinary people of Turkey trying to feed their families and possibly the 4 milliion refugees they have taken in.

    Anyway my point was if you are trying to destroy a countries economy, do not be surprised if they act in the OP way.

    I am European, not American. And you are Turkish, I presume?
    The one who will destroy Turkey is Erdogan, who tries to become a Sultan, a Calif and bring back secular Turkey into the Middle Ages of the thug Muhammad.

    Turkey seems to be Trump's Granada. Instead of real blood, economic blood. And an Erdogan scalp, to SHOW.

    If we are going to keep the sanctions on Turkey we should probably take or nukes, close the airbase and go home.

    Can someone remind me again, why we need an airbase, or any other sort of military base, in Turkey?

    Hmmm... well ... I fear that the Turks are pretty good shots ... at least we valued them very highly as allies in Korea, and they saw off the British at Gallipoli ... couldn't we have our target-air-base in some other country -- I won't name any candidates -- where they are not so martial?

    Oh .... sorry. But if the Turks don't want us, I still think we should leave. In fact, I think we should leave regardless, although if we do ... some folks there might regret it later, as has happened elsewhere.
