Erdogan’s Hypocrisy Over Khashoggi’s Murder

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Turkey under Erdogan’s leadership is a fascist dictatorship, masquerading as democratic. Criticizing Riyadh for Khashoggi’s murder is like the pot calling the kettle black.

In 2016, Erdogan abolished constitutional governance, usurping […]

Trump’s national security advisor John Bolton is militantly Russophobic, pro-war, and anti-peace and stability.

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Trump is a geopolitical know-nothing, a businessman turned politician, America’s first realty TV president.
