Gabbard Urges Trump: Don't Drag Us Into War At Bidding Of Islamist Dictator Of Turkey
Tulsi Gabbard has once again gone on the offensive, skewering Washington mainstream foreign policy and the Trump administration's refusal to stand up to "dictator" Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Ankara is now demanding greater support from NATO as well, after Russian jets were widely believed behind last Thursday's massive air strike which killed 33 Turkish soldiers. More

Haftar's offensive. Turkey and Syria are currently downing each other's aircraft over Idlib province in a major escalation.
