DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:50 A.M.) – On Thursday, Turkish Prime Minister Erdoğan unleashed his henchmen on around 50 anti-government protesters, injuring eleven people outside the residence of the Turkish ambassador in Washington according to official sources.

American demonstrators protested against Ankara’s policies in Iraq and Syria amid a meeting between Donald Trump and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, two staunch NATO allies.

Now, footage has emerged from a new angle showing the vehicle where Erdoğan sat on the back seat. At 0:13, an advisor appears to be given an important message. Seconds later, Turkish security guards begin beating up civilians in broad daylight:


The State Department condemned the attack as an assault on free speech and warned Turkey that the action would not be tolerated. “We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms,” said Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman.

The initial rush devolved into several smaller skirmishes as uniformed police officers, some in helmets and swinging collapsible batons, struggled to restore order.


Remarkably, no arrests were made despite the Turkish violence in broad daylight seemingly at the direct order of Erdoğan himself who appeared to be upset over the provocative loudspeaker chants.

simple, it is easy to get unmarked guns in US, get hold of few .45 hollow point amo with carabines or subsonic ammo with rifles, silencers are easy to do,position yourself, organize a protest and blow those pigs, from about 100 m to 200 m aim neck and top part of limbs more arteries there use fireworks as diversionary. Some of those pigs was private US security, u can recognize them easy.

“The presidents of the US and Turkey are both nationalists who have promised to make their countries great again. Both have turned governing into a family business and rely heavily on their respective sons-in-law, Jared Kushner and Berat Albayrak. Both are despised by metropolitan elites but often adored outside big cities. Both have accused their countries’ permanent bureaucracy of plotting against them.” – Financial Times It’s a shame that the US police and the Secret Service didn’t intervene and stop this madness. Also the media is to be blamed for hiding the fact that Erdogan is a dictator, a fascist… Read more »

Erdo is a crazy mofo beyond any hope for reason, but also a legend.

I hope at least a few CIAAntifaQaeda whiners got smashed up in the anticonstitutional, anticuck hiding.

Gotta admit that there are no limits to his effrontery 😀

Sending your bodyguards to beat up protesters in a country you’re visiting is astonishing

I despise Ergogan beacause he is an islamist dictator but i somehow admire his total lack of scrupules and his tonitruous declarations

Erdolf’s playing with fire. He was very lucky but when you play with fire, soon up or later, you end looking like a shawarma. The sooner it’ll happen, the better.

I wonder if they would have been so brazen if there were just as many US law enforcement personnel? Something tells me the US administration are willing to put this behind them because Edrogan has something to offer, or they are offering him something.
