Video Shows Turkish President Erdogan Watching Brutal Fight Outside Embassy In Washington

Francis Olson | 19 May, 2017, 18:13

The US State Department slammed the violence in a statement as inappropriate, saying the rights of people to freedom of speech and peaceful protest should be respected.

Nauert said in her statement that the United States respects Turkey's concerns about its approach, and will continue regular consultations on the issue.

Erdoğan met with US President Donald Trump in a scheduled gathering on Tuesday.

Sen. John McCain said the USA should toss the Turkish ambassador "the hell out" after a demonstration outside the envoy's home in Washington turned violent and several protesters were beaten bloody.

McCain is the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee which approves funds for the Department of Defense.

As the violence broke out, videos from the confrontation quickly spread on social media showing Erdogan's bodyguards pummeling people, even kicking people in the face.

This goon squad, according to published reports, contained members of Mr. Erdogan's security deal.

The U.S.is declining to say whether the security agents were granted diplomatic immunity or under what conditions they were released.

Deepika Padukone had 'super super time' at Cannes Film Festival
Cannes Film Festival is now noted for its red carpet fashion display as well as for the quality of its film titles. Her pale satin gown by Twinset was designed with spaghetti straps and thigh-high split, according to Vanity Fair .

Royce's letter states that that bodyguards "viciously beat multiple individuals, throwing them to the ground and kicking them in the head". The Turkish president is feeling his oats in any case, having won modifications to the Turkish constitution that strengthen his political position.

While it's understandable that his security detail might over-react if it perceived a serious threat to Mr. Erdogan's safety that doesn't excuse criminal acts.

The Kurds are an ethnic group in the Middle East who have never had a nation state of their own. "This isn't Turkey. This isn't a third-world country, and this kind of thing can not go unresponded to diplomatically, and maybe in other ways".

The Turkish Embassy said Wednesday night, though, that the demonstration was "unpermitted and provocative".

Brunson was arrested in December and accused of being a member of the "Fethullahist Terror Organization (FETÖ)", a terrorist group the Turkish government claims Gulen runs from his home in Pennsylvania. Arming the Kurds while keeping Turkey on board is a gamble.

Most Americans can probably understand and appreciate the complexity of this matter. They have no right to lay their hands on reporters or protesters or anyone else for that matter, when the people they are apparently roughing up seemed to be merely doing their jobs or exercising the rights they have in this country.

The YPG can be an important instrument in achieving a military victory and, thus, Washington is prepared to take the risk of further damaging USA relations with Turkey. In response, Turkish officials told their US counterparts that they reserved the right to step up military action against the YPG in Syria.
