Tulsi BLASTS Erdogan, calls him “expansionist dictator of Turkey” (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 485.

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 485. Tulsi Gabbard posted a video on social media, directed to US President Trump, and addressing Erdogan’s latest games in Syria, calling on Trump to “make it clear to NATO and Erdogan that the United States will not be dragged into a war with Russia by the aggressive, Islamist, expansionist dictator of Turkey, a so-called ‘NATO’ ally.”

The US media and officials who stubbornly keep referring to armed groups dominated by an Al-Qaeda offshoot in Syria’s Idlib province as ‘rebels’ only disgrace themselves and their country, US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has said.

Gabbard, who is one of the Democratic Party contenders in the 2020 presidential race, castigated American mainstream media and Trump administration officials for a consistent effort to whitewash the extremists entrenched in the north-western province of Idlib – Syria’s last major stronghold of anti-government forces. Such actions betray the memory of the 9/11 terrorist attack, one of the worst tragedies in modern American history, she said.

The corporate media needs to stop referring to Al-Qaeda and their affiliated groups in Idlib as ‘rebels’ in a deceptive effort to make them seem like freedom fighters. I and thousands of Americans enlisted after Al-Qaeda’s attack on 9/11. The media and the Trump administration’s continued labelling of these terrorists as ‘rebels’ is a disgrace and dishonor for all our men and women in uniform and our entire country.

In her address, published on Twitter, the congresswoman also demanded that US President Donald Trump refrain from aiding Turkey in what she called its “invasion of northern Syria,” which she said might lead the US to a conflict with Russia. She also called on Congress to pass her Stop Arming Terrorists Act, which would bar Washington from assisting countries supporting terrorist groups.

The US special representative, James Jeffrey, recently stated that he had not seen Hayat Tahrir al-Sham – an Al-Qaeda offshoot controlling most part of militant-held Idlib – “planning or carrying out international terrorism attacks.” This statement, referring to a group already designated a terrorist one in the US itself, provoked an angry reaction from Moscow, which called it “absolutely unacceptable.”

And how will it be accomplished w/o countering all the costly/wasteful endless useless wars around the globe, the ‘War Of Terror’ waged against the rest of the world, the ‘Financial/Economic War’ waged against the rest of the world, the 900 bases around the globe, 700+ billion war+terror budget or the probably equal enormous Deep-State budget as well…all set up for deliberately robbing the taxpayer + society blind and draining the whole country dry for the corrupt elites oligarchs MIC + security/intelligence apparatus.

Jeffrey should immediately be arrested for assaulting a thousand years of Logic with a club of self-serving gibberish.

International terrorism attacks?? Doesn’t ‘international’ mean ‘between nations’? I had no idea al Qaeda was a home-grown Syrian construct.

Oh, fine…..so it’s just Jeffrey uttering more self-serving hypocritical gibberish about the USA being the center of the Universe and not just a fool’s abuse of language. I’ll concede the point. Happy now?

This is perfect for the anglosaxon neocons and warmongers, let’s rush the support to the good people of Turkey fighting for justice, let’s sanction Russia, Iran, NATO countries not willing to support ally Erdogan and more sanctions against Syria. It’ll bring even more chaos, weaken the EU, everyone involved. Trump will love it.

“anglosaxon” neocons and warmongers. While I agree there is a NWO type link between the US and UK’s deepstate and the Zionists. There has been since Wilson [that’s the US president that has a lot to answer for on the world stage]. However neocons and warmongers come in all shapes, colours, sexes and creeds.

If there was anything like a level playing field in the USA Tulsi would win the Democratic nomination by a landslide and probably the Presidency. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Alex. I just watched her previous video calling out the farce of the anonymous intelligence ‘sources’ saying Russia is behind Sanders’ success – and by implication the cowardice of Sanders in going along with this without the slightest evidence. This woman is as brave as she’s attractive. It’s a disgrace that she’s been sidelined by the corrupt paid for presstitute media.

The UK should have put that Catherine Ashton at the helm, then wind her up and have her blather “Oh gosh. I hadn’t heard that. Maybe we should look into that one of these decades.” until her spring winds down.

PS: I suspect when nations not in American pockets speak of ‘plants’ in such international organizations, they’re speaking of house plants.

Honestly, I’m not beyond suspecting it could have been a joint work project between the Israelis, the Saudis and their al Qaeda brethren (yes, I meant brethren not brennan, but who knows?), to remove a state antagonistic to both. They’ve all worked so well together since 9/11, one couldn’t really dismiss that possibility, could one?

Israel could not have done it alone. It was Israel + an inside job. The HQ was in Building 7 and that is why it and the evidence it contained had to be destroyed in a controlled demolition. 3,244 architects and engineers and 26,611 members of the public support conducting a proper investigation to find out the truth, which, so far, has not happened. Check out the video of Building 7 falling here: https://www.ae911truth.org/ “The official explanation of the failures defies known scientific methods of analysis and is untenable in the face of logical investigation.” There is no way that… Read more »

Good work Tulsi! Of all people that should be condemning Erdogan ,it is a sad indictment on America and its media to ally with Turkey and not condemn its outrageous actions.Bloody typical ! If left uncontrolled this could very well result in a major confrontation between Turkey and Russia and if the protagonist is not dealt with swiftly, by Russia ( i.e. Turkey) we will see other parties jumping on Turkey’s bandwagon into a major regional and international conflict. I hope not! Our hope is Russia will finish off quick smart and be done with its arrogant partner who is… Read more »

Tulsi is the one of the few realist politicians,she calls it right,she is still young and maybe the only hope of saving The Great American Republic from the useless oldies.p.s,She is right about Erdogan who wishes to go back to glorious past and rebel against the Attaurk created modern republic..

Did Turkey Just Sacrifice Their Own Troops to Protect Al-Qaeda?
