For quite a while, with the announcement of the murder of Khashoggi, the Turks claimed to have tapes of him being tortured and murdered. I've not yet heard them - have any of you?

Meanwhile, they now claim he was strangled as soon as he entered the Saudi embassy. And then cut up and dissolved (in acid? Base? Humus?)

So, was the torture on the unheard tapes conducted on his corpse, which they, apparently murdered twice?

Now,I have no love for the Saudi's, those fine people who brought the world the Taliban. But of all places in the world to cast blame on imprisoning, torturing, murdering and otherwise oppressing those who oppose the government, Turkey's about as far down the list as you can get, even by North Korean standards.

With some many elightened souls inhabiting the soapbox, surely an explanation will spring forth !

Erdogan was disliked, his policies had failed and Turkey was pretty much faarrrkkkked, along comes Crown Prince Tiny Dick and murders Khashoggi in Turkey.

Erdogan gets the state controlled media to leak damning evidence every day for more than a week and then just stops.

Can anyone say Billions of dollars in low interest (lets say 0%) loans of over long periods of time, maybe decades or centuries. Erdogan buys his and Turkeys was out of the neck deep pile of sh*t they are in and the bacon dodging Prince comes out of it with his dick looking almost 2.54cm long.
