It is no surprise to me, but Turkey has been caught funding ɪꜱʟᴀᴍɪᴄ ꜱᴛᴀᴛᴇ crazies, and ɪɴᴅɪᴀ is rightfully worried.

Turkey’s strongman Erdoğan is an Islamist radical. The ɴᴀᴛᴏ alliance has ignored this for far too long. Turkey needs to be kicked out. I have been advocating that for years, ever since learning about the crazy Erdoğan.

He should be arrested and put on trial, not by the ᴜɴɪᴛᴇᴅ ꜱᴛᴀᴛᴇꜱ, but by the people of Turkey. If this cannot be accomplished, then he should be targeted, like ɪʀᴀɴ’s Soleimani.

Call it assassination. Call it whatever you like. However one may characterize it is irrelevant.

Such men are enemies of humanity. Hiding behind protocol and norms should not exempt these thugs from the consequences of supporting terrorism. Maybe ɪɴᴅɪᴀ or ɪꜱʀᴀᴇʟ will do it.


A Shout Out To Our Canadian Friends

Former President Jimmy Carter talks about elements of the Iranian hostage crisis in an interview with Piers Morgan. Discussing the film Argo, Carter gives a lot of the credit to the Canadian ambassador to Iran at the time, Ken Taylor, and Canada’s Parliament.

“The main hero, in my opinion, was Ken Taylor who was the Canadian ambassador who orchestrated the entire process. I was informed about it the first day, and I was very much involved with the Canadian government because the Canadian government would not legally permit six false passports to be issued. So the Canadian parliament had to go into secret session the first time in history, and they voted to let us use six Canadian passports that were false.”

The script and story line of Argo demote the role of Taylor, leaving out key events, which has led to some criticism of the film and its director, Ben Affleck.

Besides Taylor, I also want to personally thank the members of the Canadian parliament at that pivotal point in history.
