Top US General rushes to Turkey amid accusations US plotted coup

OWON: Sad really, even if true, relationships are damaged. Perhaps beyond repair and that has mass implications.

Caught with their hands in the Cookie Jar, now the Turks are burning US bases. What if that catches on and the World burns 990 of them? OMG world peace will erupt? Bring it on. For the world to progress it needs the removal of these vipers worldwide. Kill the cause of wars, not the people.

Top US General rushes to Turkey amid accusations us plotted coup

A top American general, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, is rushing to Turkey on an unexpected visit, after President Erdogan’s allies directly accused the US of being behind the failed coup attempt in the country and have begun purging members of the Turkish military with ties to the United States.

Turkish officials announced that General Dunford will visit the country on July 31 after conducting phone negotiations with his Turkish counterpart General Hulusi Akar reports the pro-government Daily Sabah.

Meanwhile, the diplomatic row between the United States and Turkey, in the wake of a failed attempt to overthrow the Erdogan government, worsened on Friday, with Ankara becoming increasingly insistent that the Obama Administration and NATO were at the center of the coup plot.

What began as a complaint against the Obama administration for dragging its feet on the extradition of US-based cleric and former Erdogan ally Fethullah Gulen, who Ankara asserts masterminded the failed overthrow attempt, has devolved into a conspiracy theory by Erdogan and his supporters, alleging that the United States actively aided the bid.

On Friday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made headlines by accusing the head of US Central Command of, "siding with the coup plotters," and demanding that the four-star general should, "know your place."

The Turkish President implied that the United States played a direct role in the failed coup by insinuating, "My people know who is behind this scheme… they know who the superior intelligence behind it is, and with these statements you are revealing yourselves, you are giving yourselves away."

US National Intelligence Director James Clapper acknowledged that the post-coup purge in Turkey impairs NATO’s mission in Syria, as a disproportionate number of Turkish forces working with the United States in the fight against Daesh have been caught up in the arrests and firings.
