BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pledged on Wednesday to help the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) to retake all of Libya if the international efforts fail.

During his speech at the Turkish Parliament, Erdogan said that “if international efforts do not lead to a solution, we will support the reconciliation government until it controls the whole country,” stressing that “the European Union has no authority to make a decision on Libya,” according to the Turkish Anatolia Agency.

On Tuesday, the Libyan National Army announced the destruction of a Turkish ship in the Tripoli seaport carrying weapons and ammunition.

While the UN envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salameh, said that there are various military violations and interference in the Libyan file, the most recent of which was the Tripoli port being attacked by missiles .

The spokesman for the Turkish President, Ibrahim Kalin, announced that Turkey does not confirm the information that a ship had sunk during a missile attack in the port of Tripoli.

In response to a question about the bombing of a Turkish ship in the port of Tripoli, he said: “There was a bombing, but there were no casualties, and the source of this fire was answered.”

He added, “I can say that after this, the situation calmed down.”

Mongolia is a republic and a democracy, not a kingdom.
It’s twice as big as Turkey with only 3.2M inhabtants and now they have oil too, but I doubt that Ulan-Bator would agree having a massive arrival of shitlamists, and Russia wouldn’t too…

Most Mongolians (racial type) today are Buddhists and would be aghast at having Turkic peoples bring their alien culture and intolerant religion to their country.

There were probably moments when German people were listening to what Hitler was saying, thinking, if we don’t get rid of this guy he’s going to start a world war.

Turkish people might be feeling that now..

Fighting on too many fronts. He should read about Germany in WWII.
Opened a disastrous fron in the east where they ended up losing 80% of their army.
Had he made a deal with soviets for natural resources like minerals and Oil and support in their war against Japan. We would have a different world now.

ErDOG once said he wanted the same powers as Adolf and that Adolf had an effective form of gov’t… Let’s hope he’ll fully follow his inspirator!

He’s becoming delusional.
And as the Turkish economy is not doing too well, Erdogan and his party may be out of power even before the 2023 elections there.

I X-finger for this to happen! Religious fanatics should be banned from politics at worldwide level : politics is for responsible adults, not for retards believing in some inexistent all-powerful omniscient supernatural entity

It is quite clear now who is the master of jihadists in Sinai/Egypt, he is half way through re-creating his empire. His words above are just confirming it. It is also quite clear who is supporting him in achieving that goal planning to share with him the spoils in order to achieve their goal for Oded Yinon

BS! : ErDOG is backing Hamas together with Iran.
It’s an ecumenical Sunni/Shia radicals conspiracy.
BTW, Israel helped ousting the Turkey/Qatar-backed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and is helping Egypt getting rid from roaches in Sinai!
