    Turkey is not a major oil producer, nor are they a major trade partner for the USA, so this has little impact.

    Wake me up when Saudi Arabia finally abandons the petro-dollar. Now that would be world-changing. :D

    Iraq and Libya. Someone went after both leaders executed in Iraq and Libya. Rothschild does not like people that go against their Dollar. You also notice what happens to Gold and Silver during those times? You talk about manipulation

    I say we carve up the Turkey this coming Thanksgiving. One slice for Iraq. A compensatory slice for Syria. A small token gesture-of-peace-overture slice for Iran. A good-sized chunk for Armenia. And a big 20 oz. meaty portion to create the Secular Republic of Kurdistan, long overdue.

    I'm not a Dem. Never have been.

    As for Turkey….. their (current) ruler is just as heinous and nasty and autocratic as the US Racist-in-Chief. Erdogan deserves what's coming to him, as with all tyrants.

    Yea, I kinda figured this. Usually those who oppose the USD/US usually end up "gone" after a while. Weather it be a coup, or an "accident" something usually happens.

    I think most rulers are Tyrants these days. One pretty much needs to be a tyrant to make it to the top. Look at Putin,Xi Jinping,Kim,Trump,Netanyahu,Duarte and the list goes on..

    I don't disagree there.

    But Erdogan is two evil things by the nature of his recent actions: #1) he is a tyrant. #2) he is an expansionist invader.

    #1. Tyrant is a ruler that is harsh and oppressive towards his own people. He cares more about his ambition and legacy than caring about the good of the people.

    #2. Expansionist (imperialist) invader. This is someone who militarily invades, threatens, occupies and oppresses his neighbors. The Turkish army had no legitimate reason to adventure into Iraq, they had no business to occupy parts of Syria. The Hague should indict Erdogan for bombing, terrorizing and shelling Kurdish enclaves outside of Turkey.


    Then again, you could say that we have our own American baby-tyrant. And that our own American baby-tyrant is cozy with foreign Expansionists/Imperialists/Meddlers (e.g. Israel, Saudi Arabia are just as guilty in their proxy wars).

    This is true, he is definitely no angel. I also don’t agree with everything he does.

    Right. Bombing foreign countries is something the USA would never countenance.

    They all seems to bomb these days quite a lot more often than the old days. Each country seems to be doing so in their own interests. They only complain when it is not in their own interests. Funny thing is the country America is against (China) in this case has not really been bombing others around the world.

    Then would you agree the US has NO ***** BUSINESS getting involved with "carving up Turkey"?
    The US can rant and rave, invade/destroy 3rd rate countries, but the writing is on the wall. The dollar standard is a dead fiat walking. It's not going to be very pretty over here in a couple of years.

    Unless you are a day trader, for long term investing ditching the US dollar is going to every wise
