Turkey makes the claim that insulting the head of state is a 'crime against humanity'. Turkey is a corrupt country and is committing 'crimes against humanity' on a daily basis. My username is real name, I live in the US, please come sue me. If you need to be insulted vs just stating facts, the party leadership are doo-doo heads. For anyone not aware, here is LY HRW report on Turkey. https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2015/country-chapters/turke...

All true. But it doesn't stop the oligarchy [1][2] in your country to still keep it in the NATO, have (at least one) military base there (Incirlik Air Base), not say/do anything about the way it treats minorities, journalists ...its own citizens.

(remember the US slogan: "We bring freedom, democracy and human rights to the world")

Don't forget turkey had the cojones to provoke the Russians by shooting their plane and then commit a war crime by shooting sry the pilots.

They'be become a rogue nation more than any other.


Yeah... Cojones :-) Or coincidence:

Turkey complains about crimes against humanity? That is rich, they have never acknowledged the Armenian genocide and they are currently bombing the Kurds while having previously helped IS, who are themselves guilty of crimes against humanity.

Their leadership needs a diplomatic spanking.


You'd be remiss to not also point out that there are kurdish groups that blow up bombs with the intent of killing civilians.
