Erdogan ramps up war talk as Turkey pushes for nuclear weapons after Putin missile row

TAYYIP ERDOGAN claimed he "will not accept" the status quo and believes Turkey should have nuclear weapons after accusing Donald Trump, NATO and Israel of hypocrisy over their outcry at missiles recently delivered to Turkey from Russia.

The Turkish President said it was unacceptable that nations boasting missiles of their own are attempting to restrict Turkey's military operations. Erdogan said: "Some nations have missiles with nuclear warheads — not just one or two. But (they say) I should not have missiles with nuclear warheads. I don't accept this. "There is is almost no developed country in the world that does not have nuclear warheads."

Turkey's pro-government newspaper, Sabah, added fuel to the fire by declaring: "We are carrying out work for nuclear missiles."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was also involved in Erdogan's outburst, claiming that the Middle Eastern state tries to intimidate with its own weapons.

He added: "We have Israel nearby, don't we? They scare (other nations) with these."

Recent months have seen Turkey become increasingly disruptive on the international stage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, I really don't like this guy, because he refuses to be President of ALL of Turkey's people (like its Christians and its Kurds), and consistently fails to come up with peaceful political ways with which to integrate these communities.

But when Edrogan speaks about Israel's nuclear weapons, being used to "scare" its regional neighbors, he is absolutely speaking the truth.
