It is impossible to describe Turkish citizens' anger at the U.S. because of the country's open support for terrorist groups including FETÖ
The current U.S. administration's relationship with terrorists is not just about hosting former imam Fetullah Gülen who is considered to be responsible for the July 15 coup attempt in Turkey. The U.S., the self-named flag-bearer of global counterterrorism, overtly provides weapons to the People's Protection Units (YPG), the Syrian branch of the outlawed PKK that it also defines as a terrorist group.
Earlier in the week, Peter Cook, press secretary to U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, gave the following answer to the question of whether the PKK receives the weapons that the U.S. dispatches to the region: "Our partners promised that weapons will not fall into the PKK. We expect them to adhere to this commitment."
Who does the U.S. politician call "our partners?" The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDG).
Who leads the structure called the SDG? The People's Protection Units (YPG), which is the PKK and Democratic Union Party's (PYD) armed wing in Syria.
We are sick and tired of manipulations that hide terrorist organizations through the combination of letters. However, the U.S. administration insists on this nasty tactic. Blatantly ignorant of global communities, universal law and ethics, the U.S. joins hands with terrorists through its pro-coup radicals against legitimate states in the Middle East.
The result is always the same. The PKK gains more strength through American weapons and bombs, the consequence of which Cook does not even wonder, which killed more than 10 civilians in Turkey last week alone.
As such, it is impossible to describe the public's anger at the U.S. Even the most apolitical Turkish citizen on the street asks whether NATO member Turkey, the PKK or coup-maker Gülenists is the U.S.'s ally.
It seems that this deepest historical wound inflicted by Barack Obama's administration on Turkey-U.S. relations will not easily recover. However, the results of presidential elections, which were not definite when I began writing this article, give us hope even if slightly.
We learned in our childhood that every war experienced in this region stems from the U.S.'s unstable position. I wish election results become definite soon and the U.S. changes, or at least clarifies, its monetary and energy policies. Thus, we, Middle Easterners, can stop wondering what calamities we will face and can find a little peace.
