Erdogan: ‘Democracy, freedom and the rule of law’ Have No Value

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has clamed that democracy, freedom and the rule of law have no value any longer.

The Turkish leader also added that those who don’t support the Turkish government are Turkey’s “enemies.”

“Democracy, freedom and the rule of law…For us, these words have absolutely no value any longer. Those who stand on our side in the fight against terrorism are our friend. Those on the opposite side are our enemy,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Mar.16, according to the DPA news agency.

According to Erdogan, Turkey is going to deploy more forces to crack down a Kurdish insurgency in the country’s south east

Ankara describes all Kurdish militia which spread widely throughout Syria and Iraq as a direct national threat. Erdogan repeated Turkey will strike Kurds everywhere.

“Wherever you run, our soldiers, police and village guards will find you there and do what is necessary,” Erdogan said, referring to Kurdish militants.

He also called to “swiftly” end immunity from prosecution for pro-Kurdish politicians.

    What’s utterly astounding in this new bizarro inverse world is that the EU, Merkel is playing ball with the Mad Dog. It has come to the point where our western governments have lost their cover, the popular support of their citizens, the facade is gone yet they carry on in defiance. The EU is in for very tough and dark times ahead.

      We must place limits on peoples wealth, so we can limit the damage they do. Erdogan is a dictator who is ethnically cleansing the Kurds. He profited from the purchase of IS oil and his list of crimes are many. NATO has become a criminal organisation, corrupt to the core.
