Turkish PM: Assad surpassed his father in brutality

erdogan defTurkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday visited a Syrian refugee camp in Nizip town of the southeastern Turkish province of Gaziantep.

Delivering a speech to the Syrian refugees staying in the tent camp, Erdogan said that Syrian people was marching towards victory with each passing day.

“We are proud as much as you are of the resistance of the heroic Syrian people who is fighting for their dignity, honor, independence, future and freedom. Your righteous struggle will be crowned with victory sooner or later,” Erdogan told the refugees. His speech was translated to Arabic through an interpreter.

Erdogan said Turks welcomed Syrian refugees as their own brothers and sisters. “You are at your own home. We are proud to share our bread, tents and blankets with you.”

Erdogan said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had surpassed his late father Hafez al-Assad in brutality, adding the Syrian president would not escape unpunished for the crimes he committed.

“He will be tried before the justice of the Syrian people,” Erdogan said.

    And you surpassed the Ottomans in Stupidity. This Fool is nothing more than a pawn who will be disposed off once the west has finished with him. Erdogan needs to wake up to himself, He really thinks that his country will be excepted as part of Europe. All this A@@ kissing has amounted to nothing. God help the Innocent in Turkey who which for nothing more than to have peace.

      I am no fan of Turks or Ottomans… Our history shows us that they were no better if not worse than the Nazis. However, Erdogan, his politics aside, is the only man who came to power with honest ballot. If the Turkish people decide to throw him out it will happen in a jiffy. You cannot say that about any other leader in the MidEast. They either forced their way in or they cheated and you know it.

    FreetheME, Arrogance reduces people’s wisdom.Too many people believe in their own greatness;It’s like looking into a passenger side mirror- where objects appear larger they really are-and believing the size of your head…. Erdogan sees himself as “The sultan” of a modern Ottoman Empire.

      Well gee guys … Sultan or not, isn’t he cheering for the ‘right’ side? ;-) At least publicly?
      And without UN aid, could he be feeding the multitudes? Lebanon seems to have a problem with feeding only 200,000 – where even citizens are not with aid either. Someone has to mouth the words, simply for the assistance to depressed humanities. And he DID get tents.
      But yes, it hardly matters if Assad doubled his father’s body-counts … Ergodan and UN were not yacking it up much about usual atrocities before 2 years ago when the desperate flood began to pour over the border.
      I figure this is a ‘pep-talk’ is to keep spirits up in the chill-zone … we could hope for a day when Kurds and Armenians get the same ‘boost’. :-)

        The Sultan won’t be cheering .He’d call it a Persian conspiracy aimed at destroying the empire, History re-run.lol
