After a failed coup attempt in Turkey last week, President Barack Obama expressed his support for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who has slowly been becoming an Islamic dictator.
In an interview with Breitbart, Blackwater founder EriK Prince said that the Obama administration wants to see an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East, which is why Obama was so quick to condemn the attempted coup.
Prince said that Obama has “been tilting toward an Islamist or Muslim Brotherhood approach to foreign policy. Erdoğan has long desired to rebuild the Ottoman Empire, and now that the coup attempt against him has failed, he will be able to purge the military of anyone who would stand in his way.”
“(The coup was) a poorly planned and poorly executed coup attempt done against Erdoğan, a guy who’s gone to war kind of against his own military over his past dozen years at the center of power there,” he stated.
Immediately after the coup attempt, over 6,000 people were arrested and charged, which includes high-ranking generals, judges and an assortment of other people.
Now, Erdoğan can replace these people with drones of his own and that will stand by and allow him to turn Turkey into an Islamic state that will try to dominate the Middle East.
“He has replaced dozens of generals and other ranking officers, trying to strip away power from the military and trying to move towards a more Muslim Brotherhood-friendly nation,” Prince stated.
While military coups are horrible, in this case it appears that some elements of the Turkish military were trying to stand up for democracy and stop a dictator.
Now that they have failed, there is no one let to stop Erdoğan from building his new empire.
