Turkey Continues Attacks on Free Press
Turkish police staged a dawn raid on a large-circulation newspaper armed with warrants to take the editor-in-chief into custody.
There can be no image quite so potent of a government that has lost its democratic legitimacy or one that has something to hide.
Turkey slugs it out with China for the dubious title of the world’s most prolific jailer of journalists.
Turkey is about to assume the chairmanship of the G20 and to lead that organization’s fight against corruption. It is a member of NATO. Turkey still aspires to join the European Union.
Yet, Turkey is acting like a rogue state.
The G20, NATO, and the European Union do NOT have any place for a rogue state as a member.
These organizations need to do the right thing: tell Turkey to change or be ejected.
Give Turkey one month to comply or their membership is terminated, not suspended.
The world must eliminate all rogue states using any means necessary.
The facts no one wants to read.
