in response to reader comment: The true Turkish color has been revealed

>As far as Turkey is concerned, when will blind Washington open its eyes to Turkey which alligned itself with an anti-American block of nations?<

When Washington opens its eyes it will be probably too late to see anything. The Turks will carefully have disposed of the corpses and dispersed the smoke from their guns while shouting "Peace at home - peace in the world!".

Besides, I'd not underestimate the notorious ability of politicians to see and say only things which they want to be seen and heard. The Turkish lobby in the US is probably not as powerful as the Saudi lobby but now with the integration of Turkey in dar al-Islam the Turkish influence may increase rather than decrease among the US power elite if backed by the Saudi $ billions that are eroding America.
