Prominent columnist Abdullah Bozkurt revealed in the Turkish pro-government paper Today’s Zaman, how Erdogan managed to ruin the Turkish relationship with Iraq. Erdogan, who supported Maliki’s opponent in elections, was angry that the Iraqi justice system backed by the democratically elected prime minister Maliki opened a terror trial against an Iraqi citizen.
For many observers Turkey’s disastrous shredding of it’s „Policy of Zero Problems with our Neighbors“ is hard to understand. Here are some quotes.
Turkish prime minister Erdogan lost all legitimacy. The Turkish people is unwilling to go to war against Syria but Erdogan uses bloody provocations and bold lies to lead Turkey to war with Syria. Doing so Erdogan pleases his backers in Doha, Riyad and Washington, but betrays the Turkish people who would never elected him had they known that Erdogan would turn out to become a warmongering lackey of the zionists. There is nothing to hide anymore.
