Turk at the airport..... Name? - Dede Kopeoglu. - Sex? - Three to five times a week. - No, no. I mean male or female? - Male, female, sometimes camel. - Holy cow! - Yes, cow, sheep, animals in general. - But isn't that hostile? - Horse style, doggy style, any style! - Oh dear! - No, no! Deer run too fast!

Lo, it's the other way around. The Turks are all selling their Lira's for dollars and Euro's. Because the Turkish lira is nothing worth anymore.

Apart from Qatar, it is the 'FAMILY-OWNED' ARAB dictatorships, in-bed with the Israelis which should be shunned by all non-Arab Muslim countries. These Arab BASTARDS, especially the Saudi FILTH have $TRILLIONS in American banks, yet Arabs and Muslims are still being abused DAILY by Jewish-Ruled America. All Arab DICTATORSHIPS are needed to be DESTROYED. They are the WORST ENEMIES on non-Arab Muslims JewSa / JewSa / JewSa /JewSa / JewSa / JewSa / JEWSa / JewSa / JewSa / JewSa /JewSa / JewSa / JewSa / JewSa. Trump is the trashiest, lowest of the low, elected by the lowest of the low Americans.

END diplomatic relationship with AIPAC / Israeli owned and ruled America. Their 'JEWISH-BOUGHT' politicians and rulers can NEVER EVER be friends of Muslim Pakistan, a nuclear-power country. Iran has been doing fine without diplomatic relationship with the AIPAC / ISRAELI owned / ruled American ENEMY. Remove or arrest all CIA murdering agents in Pakistan. Show NO MERCY, same as what Americans do to your people. Remove 95% of Americans from the embassy in Islamabad. END all co-operation with the American ENEMY.

Trashiest Trump TRASH has made the biggest mistake, picking on TURKEY. All Muslim countries should END diplomatic relationship with USA, the Number 1 'ENEMY' of Muslims, owned and ruled by AIPAC & ISRAEL. And, END trading in $US DOLLAR. SHAME on 330 MILLION worthless American Christians, to let tiny number of JEWS to RULE the USA. ISOLATE Trump TRASH's America. American business people are going to KILL this Trump TRASH bastard. He is hurting their businesses.
Gregory Jumiah (2 months ago)
From among decent 330 millions, the American TRASH had elected the TRASHIEST TRASH EVER as their President, who, like all previous US Presidents HAD TO GO GROVELLING to the JEWS at AIPAC Conference. Decent / patriotic Americans need to REVOLT against this AIPAC / Israeli / Goldman Sachs / Bloomberg 'STRANGLEHOLD' on the so-called 'SUPER-POWER' USA. Time is NIGH!
Gregory Jumiah (2 months ago)
Time has come for the world nations to UNITE against AIPAC / Israeli controlled 'MEGA TERRORIST' USA, for 240 years of its history. ISOLATE AIPAC / Israeli / JEWISH controlled 'MEGA-TERRORIST' USA. STOP TRADING in US Dollars. Target US 'Terror-Bases' around the world, starting with Persian Gulf, Bahrain and the Bagram in Afghanistan.

Pakistan will PROSPER now. END trading in US DOLLAR. In fact ALL countries should END link with US DOLLAR, especially the ARAB rulers in the MIDDLE EAST, or they will be traitors, which presently they are. For 240 years America has been the 'MEGA-TERRORIST' country on this God's earth, with so much bloodshed and killings throughout its HISTORY. AIPAC / Israeli owned US politicians and rulers can NEVER EVER be Muslim Pakistan's friend. Treat them as the number 1 ENEMY, which America is, if not the people. Salute to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for ending trading in US DOLLAR.

Yes, we have watched the Lira plummet by 40%. It must be the "Turkish slap" that Erdogan had for the Americans. With luck, when he's finished they'll stand there naked with their pride. I doubt that they'll be proud, but at least that's what Erdogan promises. Maybe their new friends the Russians will provide them with red underwear. Polka dot ones... Cheap! Only 62 Rubles!! Hmmm let's check Lira- Ruble conversion. Could even be less!! Hahahaha

I was in Bodrum for a week in 2005. Vendors would ask for "1 million" lira for a half liter water bottle. Would've cost about a dollar in the states. Actually, government reprinted you currency, which they would exchange onenee lira note for every old 1,000,000 lira note. Looks like Turkish inflation is up again, and it's hard to tell when it will end. Erdogan should stop throwing a temper tantrum every time things don't go his way.

I agree but the US is the reserve currency and the strongest economy in the world. Money will be fleeing for safety which in this case is the USD increasing the value of the US dollar at the same time decreasing everyone elses. Interest rates will soar and all currencies will fall but the USD will be the last.
