Now who will be calling whom..

Turkey says 'pro-Kurd' US envoy Brett McGurk should leave
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has accused a senior US diplomat of backing Kurdish militants and said he should be sent home.
He said Brett McGurk, the US envoy to the coalition against so-called Islamic State, was "definitely" supporting the YPG in Syria and the separatist PKK.
The minister was in Washington with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who met US President Donald Trump.
Tensions were high after Mr Trump said he would arm the Syrian Kurds.

US complains to Turkey over embassy violence
The US has made a complaint to Turkey after violence erupted between protesters and Turkish security personnel in Washington, DC.
Two people were arrested and 11 were injured in protests outside the Turkish ambassador's residence amid President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit.
Video footage of the clash on Tuesday showed men in suits charging past police to kick and punch protesters.
Police called the violence a "brutal attack on peaceful protesters".

This happened a few years ago in New York, too, while fascist Erdoğan was on a visit there surrounded by a phalanx of his goons who encountered peaceful protestors and did not realise that they could not treat them in the same way in the USA as they are used to doing in Turkey (where they have even been known to storm into people's houses without the requisite warrant and accost people for making what they deem to be a disrespectful gesture from their balcony as the fascist incumbent of the Turkish presidency passes in a cavalcade!).

Yeah, yeah, if you believe that you believe anything. Did the US at least stop sucking the Turkish cock long enough to make that complaint??

It's bad enough when a dictator does that in his own country, but to do it on someone else's soil, the US at that. Just goes to show how the US tolerates these criminals. Hell, why aren't they all rounded up and charged. Cowards!

Correct. It does seem that they have impunity:

Those guards aren't likely to suffer from any fallout, according to Joseph Giacalone, a retired New York City detective and professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.
Foreign security details are protected under diplomatic immunity afforded to their countries' leaders, he said. If protesters feel as if their civil rights were trampled, he added, they don't have any meaningful recourse under international law.
"It's going nowhere," Giacalone told NBC News. "This is not American police. There's no Civilian Complaint Review Board. (Protesters) can cry or scream, but the guards are covered."

Trump is sending more arms shipments to the Kurds and top senetar McCain wants Turkey's ambassador "thrown the hell out of the US".

Erdogan once again leaves the United States empty handed but has successfully created an even more negative image on himself and the country he represents.

He has achieved the complete opposite that was intended from this visit, which will not go unanswered.

I don't know about that. Trump is the man who refused to even shake hands with Merkel, and here he was having quite a cost hob-nob with Erdoğan. His thugs were able to hospitalise several peaceful protestors and, apparently, also a Washington city police officer, probably with impunity. This will play down well with the fascist segment of his support base back home. There is speculation that the main reason why Trump acts so sweetly towards Erdoğan is because of his business interests in Turkey. Not surprising to see a president put in office by one foreign fascist being chummy with another foreign fascist. The sooner he is impeached, the better.
