The Mail reports that Yeni Akit, a Turkish newspaper which has supported the likes of Al-Qaeda in the past and has ties with President Erdogan, broke news of the Orlando attack by calling victims ‘perverts’.

Meanwhile, the US still regards Turkey as a strategic ally. Many Americans will find this story as completely unacceptable and disrespectful – like Trump they will probably again question Obama‘s foreign policy.

  1. As Dr Alf knows, President Erdogan is the person whose secret service and army allegedly trains Isis, whose nurses nurse Isis fighters, and whose doctors provide them with medical facilities. He wants to build a new Ottoman Empire and engages in the smuggling of oil in conjunction with his son in collaboration with Isis. He poses as a member of NATO but is in fact a threat to us all because he and the lunatics in Saudi Arabia will cause World War 3 by taking precipitous and dangerous actions.

    His comments about gays are typical of the man and his despotic nature and whilst hosting a massive American air force base in his country he thinks he can thumb his nose at anyone he likes. We should take decisive action against ISlS now and should have done so a long time ago, starting with the cutting off of funds to ISIS followed by the replacement of all the Gulf regimes which back it.
