MERKEL - OBAMA , FEMALE VERSION V1.001
HOW IS TRUMP GOING TO DEAL WITH THIS FOOL ?
Publish date: 4 February 2017.
Germany's Angela Merkel met with aspiring dictator Turkish Erdogan and discussed "Democracy". What is incredible is not that the meeting occurred, but that Merkel thinks she can influence Erdogan on anything.
The NEW YORK TIMES provides what appears to be a bland article on the event, touching on the usual discussion points one would expect to have occurred. However, as per the usual MSM ploy, an important element was left out - this was reported properly in DW , JIHADWATCH, and other sources. The NYT did not report the most important point - Edogan scolded Merkel for associating Islam with terrorism, saying Muslims are offended with this.
The Obama Administration and the EU have been trying to appease Turkey but to no avail because:
Like Syria, most Muslim-ruled states proclaim that any group that opposes the "elected government" is a terrorist organization. Turkey, Iran, and Saudi Arabia are well-known examples. This is the way of those lands and no one can change that except internally. The Greeks know this explicitly but who would ever listen to them?
Our Trump / Tillerson / Mattis team have to figure out where and how to draw the battle lines, and how to wage the battle. The aim should not be to bring "freedom & democracy" to the Middle East because that is an idyllic fantasy at least for many years to come. Rather, it should be to contain the mortal threat that this region poses to the West.
