    Good. Not sure who Turkey expects to be outraged, they’re still way in the lead on being obstructionist assholes.

    Edit: Reading the article, this sounds less like whining and more like Erdogan getting ahead of the real reasons he’s going to do it, and insisting the totally-independent parliament is deciding on it’s own with no pressure at all, totally.

      Not just the liberals! The conservatives are achieving every one of their goals as opposition, including obstructing the non-conservative leader, whining about taxes like it’s Texas and we don’t know better, and pitching trickle-down schemes without end. They’re doing very well on their entire platform!

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    ANKARA, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said Canada and the United States were insisting that Ankara ratify Sweden’s NATO membership bid before Canada resumes the export of drone cameras to Turkey, the text of an interview with media showed on Friday.

    Speaking with reporters on a flight from Athens late on Thursday, Erdogan said the United States agreed with Canada on the issue, but that Sweden’s NATO bid was to be decided by Turkey’s parliament, after he sent the bill there for consideration in late October.

    When Erdogan signalled at a NATO conference in July that Sweden would eventually get the green light, NATO member Canada quietly agreed to re-open talks with Turkey on lifting export controls on drone parts, including optical equipment, Reuters reported.

    Turkey, a NATO member, asked in October 2021 to buy 40 Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N) F-16 fighters and 79 modernisation kits for its existing warplanes.

    U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration backs the $20-billion sale, but there have been objections in the U.S. Congress over Turkey’s delaying of NATO enlargement to bring in Sweden, and over its human rights record.

    “If we are two NATO allies, then do what you have to simultaneously, in solidarity, and our parliament will take the necessary decision.”
