Erdogan’s Insane Regret Turkey Didn’t Join George W. Bush in Attacking Iraq in 2003

Turkish President’s comments expressing regret for Turkey’s refusal to join US-led coalition which invaded Iraq cast doubt on his grasp of reality.

Russia – Insider | February 20, 2016

Anyone who worries about Turkish President Erdogan’s uncertain grip on reality will have had those worries confirmed by comments he has recently made about Turkey’s role in the 2003 Iraq invasion.

If there is one thing most people around the world agree about it is that George W. Bush’s war against Iraq was a disaster.

Leaders and countries that involved themselves in the war today regret doing so. In Britain former Prime Minister Tony Blair has seen his reputation destroyed because of his role in the war.

By contrast US allies who held aloof from the war thank their lucky stars they did so, whilst in the US Obama’s successful run for the Presidency was in part at least because of his opposition to the war.

One world leader begs to differ: Step forward Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

He says he regrets the Turkish parliament’s vote in 2002 in the run-up to the 2003 war to block the US military’s invasion of Iraq through Turkey.

He says Turkey made a mistake by not joining the US-led coalition which in 2003 invaded Iraq.

That must make Erdogan the one leader in the world sorry his country was not part of a disaster – and to say so after it happened!

  1. War Criminal Dubya’s illegal invasion and shattering of Iraq was not a disaster for one “shitty” little stain on humankind in the Mideast — even as so-called Israel was not technically a “part” of Iraq’s destruction, preferring to let other boots on the ground act on its behalf and behest. In fact, the death of Iraq was a spectacular success for the Zioentity and belligerent Zionism worldwide. Perhaps Erdogan’s recent and increasing cozying up to the Zioregime includes some subliminal messages beamed up to him from under his pillow while sleeping or during the process of communing with representatives of the devil spawn.
