Turkish President Recep Erdogan has expelled the ambassadors of 10 Western nations, including the United States, Canada, France and Germany. Erdogan accused the ambassadors of “impudence” for advocating the release of a so-called philanthropist that Turkey has imprisoned.
But Styxhexenhammer666 says there’s much more at stake here. He say Erdogan actually is attempting to undercut Egypt in a fight with Ethiopia over which nation can use the waters of the Nile for various agricultural and industrial purposes.
You also have to wonder how Turkey retains its position in NATO after expelling the ambassadors of so many Western nations? If Erdogan wants to act like a cretin, why should Turkey be pampered or protected?
