WORLD leaders gathered in Watford today as the Nato imperialist war machine attempted to paper over the cracks with growing rifts between the supposed allies.
Much attention has focused on a perceived spat between French President Emmanuel Macron and his authoritarian Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Both are accused of war crimes — Mr Erdogan for his jihadist-backed ethnic cleansing campaign against Kurds in northern Syria and Mr Macron for the sale of arms used to deadly effect in Yemen.
But Mr Macron has continued to press Mr Erdogan to be clear on what he described as Turkey’s “ambiguous relationship with Islamic State.”
As delegates gathered on Tuesday the French leader told reporters: “The common enemy today is the terrorist groups. I’m sorry to say, we don’t have the same definition of terrorism around the table.
“When I look at Turkey they are fighting against those who fought with us shoulder to shoulder against Isis and sometimes they work with Isis proxies.”
Mr Erdogan is threatening leaders with plans to “flood Europe” with Syrian refugees and to block more Nato plans if they refuse to recognise the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria as terrorists.
While Mr Trump continues to publicly praise Mr Erdogan, he threatened to impose sanctions on Ankara for its purchase of the S-400 Russian missile defence system.
The belligerent US President aimed a swipe at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today, calling him “two-faced.”
Mr Trump was responding to a video in which he was mocked by Mr Trudeau, Mr Macron and Boris Johnson.
He cancelled a press conference planned saying: “I think we’ve answered plenty of questions.”
The press were shut out as the warmongering jamboree also laid out plans to increase military spending on “defence capabilities” and how to tackle “the rise of China.”
