If there are 2 bigger hypocrites on the world stage than the UK and Turkey I don’t know of them. Turkey preaches to Israel while it occupies Northern Cyprus and oppresses the Kurds. The UK created the mess in the middle east and daily kills innocent Afghan civilians. It amazes me that the media never brings up points like these.
