Erdogan refuses to see Pence. “I will only talk to Trump,” he says

In a stinging snub to the US, Turkish President Recep Erdogan refused to receive Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who were due to visit Ankara on Thursday. “I only talk to President Trump,” he said. They were to head a large delegation to relay President Trump’s demand that Turkey pull back from Syria and negotiate a truce – or face economic sanctions. Other members were national security adviser Robert O’Brien and Special envoy to Syria James Jeffrey. Erdogan earlier announced that Turkish forces would not back down from their Syrian operation and rejected Trump’s demand for a truce. The Turkish and Russian presidents talked by phone on Tuesday and arranged for Erdogan to visit Moscow later this month and discuss averting a clash between Turkish and Syrian forces.

    Everybody love to beat up on President Trump, but reality is he just kept a promise to bring our boys home. Syria is like the rest of the Middle East; FUBAR!

      He maybe pulling 1,000 U.S. soldiers out of Syria but I saw the Pentagon’s briefing that about 3,000 U.S. military personnel being sent to Saudi Arabia, etc.

      Agreed, the only difference this time is that the Kurds had helped us in the past, and have been screwed by everyone in the past, bringing them Leftist Victim-hood, among their oil wealth…

      It would be fun to watch heavy sanctions on Turkey bring them to their knees, like the Mullahs, let’s see if Ergodan can handle the street

    Ezekiel 38- read it. It’s all falling into place!

      No it is not all falling into place. Ezekiel predicted a time of Jews living in peace, “securely” and in a “land of unwalled villages” with King David “my servant” ruling over them. None of this came true. Ezekiel was wrong, just as he was with all of his other prophecies, including his prophecy against Tyre that he said would be destroyed by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar. It never happened. He was and is a false prophet and the Bible is bunk. Russia is NEVER going to invade Israel as Ezekiel predicted, because if they ever tried the Israelis would nuke them back into the Stone Age.

    Historically xtian and Islamb terror ists do not cooperate. Though they will talk to common sense diplomats. Thus why Pence and Erdogan have no talking points.

    Erdogan needs to be taken behind the woodshed and given corrective admonition.
