An attack on the Turkish economy is no different from a strike against the flag, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated in a video message ahead of the Muslim Eid al-Adha festival.
“The attack on our economy has absolutely no difference from attacks on our call to prayer and our flag,” he said referring to the recent Turkish currency crisis, triggered by US economic pressure.
“The goal is the same. The goal is to bring Turkey and the Turkish people to their knees, to take it prisoner.”
Erdogan’s comments come as the U.S. continues its sanctions against Turkey for the detention of American pastor Andrew Brunson.

The current currency crisis is a result of Turkish inflation and current account deficit.
The US sanctions merely made the problem visible. They showed that the emperor has no clothes.

“The attack on our economy has absolutely no difference from attacks on our call to prayer and our flag,”

Gosh, the results of Basij brainwashing are terrible! n.md.148, or is it ranix or whatever… D’you know that there are cures for paranoia nowadays?

Seems evolution was replaced by backwardisation in some areas since 1979…
