Turkish Security Forces Attack Americans in Washington, Hypocrisy, and Justifiable War
Americans were beaten in Washington, DC at the hands of security guards employed by the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as he reportedly watched. Recognizing Erdogan’s long-running crackdown on dissent inside Turkey and international effort to stifle criticism of his government, the incident is a troubling development.
No foreign government can be allowed to abuse US citizens, especially inside the US, but one must ask, however, is the US simply hypocritical or is there a justification for the use of force against the Peoples and governments of other nations. To answer this question, one must ask whether or not there is such a thing as a justifiable war.
