breaking world news russia turkey

(Worthy News) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country is determined to buy and field a Russian-made missile-defense system, despite efforts by the White House to head off the deal.

Speaking at a rally in Istanbul on Tuesday, Mr. Erdogan again slammed the Trump administration’s efforts to sway Turkey from pressing ahead with the purchase of the S-400 missile defense system. During the rally, the Turkish leader said the White House had only itself to blame for not supporting Turkey’s defense needs or heeding its complaints about developments in neighboring Syria.

“Now [Washington], you tell us to give up purchasing the S-400 [but] … don’t provide us joint production and financial support” to field the American-built Patriot missile, Mr. Erdogansaid. “Having the S-400 from Russia is an outcome of this pursuit,” he added, Voice of America reported.

  1. "...DESPITE U.S. COMPLAINTS" is funny.

    That Turkey would do anything, despite U.S. complaints, is ridiculous. As if
    Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the President of Turkey, would do something because the USA likes it, is just plain ridiculous. Erdogan hates the USA.

    He stated, "Our religion [Islam] has defined a position for women [in society]: motherhood. You cannot explain this to feminists because they don't accept the concept of motherhood." Calling for "equivalency" between the genders, he stated: "You cannot bring women and men into equal positions; that is against nature because their nature is different," while reaffirming that full equality regardless of gender before the law should be maintained.

    He is right that feminists have, and do ,reject "motherhood" as an occupation and God given role in life. Else why work so hard to keep their Prostitute lifestyles, aborting the evidence (the unborn child) of their sins (crimes against God and humanity) with open, flagrant, pride.

    Erdogan is Islamic. That he claims to be sufistic (supposedly a milder form of Islamic) is just the lie of the Sufis. Have a look at his wife and the wife of his second in command. The daily display of naked and half-naked women all over the USA, even at the family isle of the grocery store, disgusts him, and his kind.
    In this, he and his kind are right. It's kinda hard to argue with right.

    And that's just the beginning of his hatred for all things U.S. Lately, he had his executive powers increased and rounded up all his dissenters.
