Cosa nasconde la telefonata tra Erdogan e Trump che ha dato il via libera all'aggressione turca contro i Curdi? C'e' un interesse personale dietro il voltafaccia di Trump che ha sconcertato anche i vertici militari USA? Frida Ghitis, opinionista della CNN, analizza il caso del tradimento dei Curdi e ipotizza che tra le diverse motivazioni ci sia anche un vecchio interesse privato alla base della decisione del presidente americano. dalla CNN: We need the real story of why Trump sold out the Kurds By Frida Ghitis, Updated 2348 GMT (0748 HKT) October 14, 2019 We need the real story of why Trump sold out the Kurds ... Trump's Syria decision is so harmful, that it is imperative we find out what was behind it. What exactly did Trump and Erdogan say to each other on that phone call? Why did Trump agree to stand back and allow Erdogan's forces -- the Turkish army and Islamist militias -- to make their move? These are compelling questions that demand an answer. Congress should require that Trump turn over a complete transcript or recording of the call with Erdogan. In fact, we also need to find out what exactly Trump has discussed with Putin on this issue. The transcripts don't need to be released to the public. Maybe a joint committee of Congress or even a panel of judges can hear the evidence. But the steps and reasoning that led to this catastrophic self-inflicted wound on American security and standing in the world must be scrutinized. If Trump refuses, we will know he has something to hide. ... The stain will not soon wash away. America's betrayal left the Syrian Kurds -- who have been trying to develop a working democracy -- with no other choice but to get help from Assad, the Syrian dictator who slaughtered civilians using chemical weapons and starvation tactics. America has betrayed its friends before, but it was always in the face of a profound moral dilemma. A moral compromise to avoid something worse, or to gain something different. But there was no dilemma here. Why did Trump do it? The President already told us, before becoming president, that he had "a little conflict of interest" with Turkey, where he has substantial business concerns, including not one but two Trump towers. But maybe that has nothing to do with it. Maybe it was just arrogance, carelessness, hubris. Under normal circumstances, we might shake our heads at Trump's decision; call it a horrible mistake and make the best of it. But these are not normal circumstances, and this is not just any poor tactical move. This foreign policy travesty demands answers. da Mother Jones del novembre 2016: Trump Admitted to a Conflict of Interest in Turkey That �little conflict of interest� would also apply to countries around the world where he has properties. PEMA LEVY Reporter Donald Trump admitted last year that he had a conflict of interest in dealing with Turkey, a country instrumental in the United States� fight against ISIS, because he has property there. The December 2015 comment foreshadowed the many questions now surrounding how the president-elect will separate himself from his far-reaching business interests. �I have a little conflict of interest �cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul,� Trump said. �It�s a tremendously successful job. It�s called Trump Towers�two towers, instead of one, not the usual one, it�s two.� A luglio di quest'anno NewsWeek pubblica: IVANKA TWEET THANKING TURKEY'S ERDOGAN FOR ATTENDING ISTANBUL TRUMP TOWERS LAUNCH RE-EMERGES AMID SYRIA CONTROVERSY BY DAVID BRENNAN ON 10/7/19 AT 8:11 AM EDT .... As the world reacted to America's sudden abandonment of its most trusted and effective local allies, a tweet from Trump's daughter Ivanka resurfaced, detailing a relevant conflict of interest regarding relations with Turkey. "Thank you Prime Minister Erdogan for joining us yesterday to celebrate the launch of TrumpTowers Istanbul!" Ivanka wrote in April 2012. The construction�made up of two conjoined towers�is one of seven current Trump Towers locations. Trump has promised to keep his business empire separate, handing over control of his commercial operations to sons Eric and Donald Jr. for the duration of his time in office. Trump has refused to fully divest from his empire, in what critics have said was a violation of the Constitution's emoluments clause. .... John Sipher, who spent 28 years working for the CIA, expressed his frustration at Trump's announcement. "At least the Trump Administration is consistent," he said on Twitter. "We are about screwing our allies, partners and friends. Don't trust America, even if you shed blood on their behalf. If you want favors build a Trump tower." Ce ne e' abbastanza per promuovere un altro impeachment nei confronti del MOTUS. Sono solo malevoli illazioni ? Per smentirle Donald Trump puo' fare solo una cosa: desecretare la telefonata tra lui ed Erdogan, come tra breve gli verra' richiesto da qualche commissione del Congresso. Fino a quel momento l'ignominia di aver venduto la vita di migliaia di Curdi per i suoi interessi personali lo perseguitera', fino alla prossima campagna elettorale ed oltre.
