“I’ll say it loud and clear: The U.S. administration planned a coup in Turkey through the Gülen terror organization and tried to cause a civil war, make our people kill each other.
The U.S. is the one who planned and applied this coup attempt … The U.S. administration which protects a terrorist organization should be declared as a country that supports terrorism …
The U.S. tried to kill Erdoğan. I am saying it loud and clear: The U.S. administration directly planned to kill the president of the Republic of Turkey and implemented this plan."
YOU THINK SO?
IS IT THAT OBVIOUS?
BUT, BUT THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAYS IT'S OBVIOUS WE DIDN'T.
IS IT THAT OBVIOUS?
BUT, BUT THE STATE DEPARTMENT SAYS IT'S OBVIOUS WE DIDN'T.
WASHINGTON (AA) - The State Department, Thursday, reacting to reports that the U.S. was behind recent failed coup attempt in Turkey.
"Obviously we had no involvement in this," U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby said during a press briefing.
["Obiously"??? How is it "obvious", we must wonder.]
NO, SAYS THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT, NO, THE U..S. DID NOT, AS THEY HAVE DONE SO MANY TIMES IN THE PAST IN SO MANY NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD, INITIATE, FUND, OR IN ANY WAY AID THE RECENT COUP ATTEMPT AGAINST THAT NUTCASE IN TURKEY, I MEAN, PRESIDENT FOR LIFE, I MEAN, MR. ERDOGAN.
NOPE, THE USA WAS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT!
AND FURTHERMORE, THOSE INITIAL REPORTS THAT ERDOGAN HAD ARRESTED AMERICAN MILITARY OFFICERS AND WAS HOLDING THEM HOSTAGE, WELL, THE AMERICAN MEDIA WAS "CORRECTED" ON THAT AND, WELL, IT'S ALL OKAY.
"ARRESTED ALONG WITH OTHER OFFICERS AT THE BASE", BUT DOES NOT LIST THE AMERICANS AT THAT BASE AS PART OF THE ROUNDUP, EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE AND EVEN THOUGH, AS SOON AS THAT WAS KNOWN, MANY HERE WERE CALLING FOR A U.S.STRIKE FORCE TO RESCUE THOSE IN QUESTION.
THE PENTAGON DID "DAMAGE CONTROL" THROUGH AN 'AIR FORCE TIMES' ARTICLE:
"The Pentagon says all U.S. troops stationed in Turkey are CURRENTLY safe..."
RIIIIGHT....THEY'RE ABOUT AS SAFE AS THE B61 HYDROGEN BOMBS THE CRAZY MAN HAS IN HIS FISTS NOW.
WHEN THE COUP WENT DOWN, OUR AMERICAN EMBASSY WENT TO FPCON DELTA!
"On Saturday morning, the American Embassy in Ankara issued an “Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens,” warning that power had been cut to Incirlik and that “local authorities are denying movements on to and off of” the base. Incirlik was forced to rely on backup generators; U.S. Air Force planes stationed there were prohibited from taking off or landing; and the security-threat level was raised to FPCON Delta, the highest state of alert, declared when a terrorist attack has occurred or may be imminent."
John Daniels reported:"I am getting reports from people on the ground at the US base in Turkey. They still do not have external power and they are now having to try and fly-in (drinking) water.
They were told to be ready for evacuate, then were told NO because [someone in] the STATE DEPARTMENT doesn’t want them to leave.”
THE "INTERIM REPORT" LINKED BELOW IS A PDF VERSION OF AN ACTUAL REPORT TO THE U.S. SENATE SELECT COMMITTEE FROM 1975.
IT IS THE MERE TIP OF THE PROVERBIAL ICEBERG WHEN IT COMES TO HOW A "SUPER-POWER" INTERFERES WITH LESSER NATIONS WHEN IT DOESN'T LIKE THE LEADERS.
FORGET THE SEVERAL RECENT ARTICLES ABOUT ERDOGAN'S "DRIFTING AWAY FROM AMERICA" LIKE THIS ONE... Running out of friends | The Economist.
OR THIS ONE "Nov 27, 2015 - The West wants Turkey out"...
DON'T BE CONCERNED THAT TURKEY'S VERSION OF "DAFFY DUCK" NOW HAS CONTROL OF AMERICAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS, SENT THERE QUITE AWHILE BACK WHEN QUIVERING NATO NATIONS WERE TERRIFIED ANEW OF "BIG, BAD RUSSIA"...AND SO WE HAD TO SEND THEM NUKES, RIGHT?
NO, WRONG....BUT WE SENT THEM ANYWAY!
WE SENT THEM KNOWING THEY'D NEVER BE SAFE THERE.
DO NOT LOOK AT THE "SHORT LIST" FROM 2013, THE 7 MOST WELL-KNOWN GOVERNMENT OVERTHROWS AMERICA HAS PULLED OFF... IT DOESN'T EVEN COVER THE ONES FROM THE 1980s, 1990s, 2000 TO 2016, DOESN'T MENTION IRAQ'S SADDAM HUSSEIN, WHOM AMERICA "HELPED" FOR DECADES AND THEN OUSTED AND HUNG HIM LATER, DOESN'T MENTION LIBYA'S MUHAMMAR GADDAFI WHOM AMERICA HAD ASSASSINATED AND THEN BOMBED HELL OUT OF HIS NATION, OR EGYPT'S HOSNI MUBARAK WHO HAD TRIED TO STOP BOOT-LICKING AMERICA, AND THEN THE U.S. DIDN'T LIKE MORSI.
NOR IS AFGHANISTAN'S AMERICAN-INSTALLED PUPPET HAMID KARZAI AND NOW ASHRAF AHMADZAI ON THE LIST, AND IT CERTAINLY DOES NOT INCLUDE AMERICA'S FRANTIC ATTEMPT TO OUST SYRIA'S ASSAD.
IT DOESN'T SEEM TO MENTION THE SYRIAN COUP LED BY THE U.S. IN 1949 WHEN
AMERICA INSTALLED ADIB SHISHAKLI, WHO ONLY LASTED 4 YEARS.
[FOR MANY OTHERS WHOM AMERICA "HELPED INTO OR OUT OF POWER", SEE
Weiner, Tim (2007). Legacy of Ashes : The History of the CIA (1st ed.). New York: Doubleday.
ALSO, FOR ALL MY FOREIGN READERS, PERHAPS YOU CAN ACCESS THE WELL-DOCUMENTED, ALBEIT WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE <HERE> FOR A BETTER GRASP OF WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO, COVERTLY SPEAKING.]
NO, THE 7 MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLE BELOW ARE FROM THE 1950s, 1960s AND JUST ONE FROM THE FLURRY OF AMERICAN "COVERT OPS" IN THE 1970s.
THOSE 7 ARE JUST THE ONES AMERICA HAD TO FINALLY ADMIT TO.
"Several national leaders, both dictators and democratically elected figures, were caught in the middle of the U.S.-Soviet Cold War — a position that ultimately cost them their office (and, for some, their life) as the CIA tried to install "their man" as head of state. The U.S. government has since publicly acknowledged some of these covert actions; in fact, the CIA’s role in the 1953 coup was just declassified this week.
In other cases, the CIA’s involvement is still only suspected."
ERDOGAN RECENTLY THREATENED WAR WITH THE U.S. IF WE DON'T SEND HIM THAT CLERIC HE WANTS.
CAN ANYTHING BE MORE TELLING ABOUT HIS MENTAL STATUS THAN THAT, ALTHOUGH HE DOES HAVE CONTROL OF ALL OF THOSE AMERICAN NUKES HE CAPTURED AT THE AIRBASE THERE, NUKES WE SENT TO HIM, SENT TO A LUNATIC, WHEN WE GOT REALLY, REALLY SCARED AGAIN OF RUSSIA.
TWO YEARS AGO ERDOGAN LASHED OUT AT U.S. MEDIA FOR MOCKING SOME OF HIS REMARKS, AS WAS REPORTED BY RUSSIA TODAY.
HONESTLY, ERDOGAN HAS BEEN SEEN HERE AS A "LOOSE CANNON" FOR A LONG TIME, AND YES, YES, IT IS 100%POSSIBLE AMERICA HAD A BIG HAND IN SEEING HIM REPLACED.
HE IS NOT LOOKED ON WITH FAVOR, DESPITE WHAT OUR PRESIDENT HAS SAID.
AGAIN, THAT B.S. ABOUT "ERDOGAN IS OUR FRIEND" MAY HAVE COME FROM OBAMA BECAUSE OF ALL THOSE "50 TO 90" AMERICAN NUKES AND AMERICAN MILITARY AND CIVILIANS THAT ARE IN HIS HANDS IN TURKEY.
DID THE U.S. WANT ERDOGAN GONE?
MANY HERE DID, INCLUDING SOME IN THE MILITARY, AND LIKELY SOME IN THE CIA, AND DEFINITELY SOME IN CONGRESS.
SO, BOTTOM LINE, IF AMERICA DID NOT TRY TO OUST ERDOGAN BEFORE, SURELY THAT WILL HAPPEN NOW.
WE NEED THOSE H-BOMBS BACK.
OH, AND BECAUSE....WELL, BECAUSE....THIS....

Q: Why will there never be a coup d’état in Washington?
A: Because there’s no American embassy there.
