John McCain: Throw Turkish ambassador out of US

US special forces are accompanied by Kurdish People's Protection Units as they patrol the northern Syrian village of Darbasiyah on the border with Turkey

Arming the Kurds while keeping Turkey on board is a gamble.

To Turkey's dismay, Trump has chose to arm Syrian Kurdish militants in the impending fight to retake the key city of Raqqa.

"McGurk is definitely giving clear support to the PKK and YPG", Cavusoglu was quoted as saying. Shortly after the incident, Kilic was recorded shouting "You can not touch us!" at DC police, likely referring to his diplomatic immunity.

Congressmen like John McCain (R-AZ) are demanding a decisive response to the Turkish officials' actions. The problem is that Turkey considers the YPG to be a mortal enemy, allied with the PKK, a Kurdish group that the USA and Turkey have named a terrorist organization. We do not do this here. "There is no excuse for this kind of thuggish behavior", McCain initially tweeted after the incident.

Using noise isolation techniques, Ferad says that the words "dalın diyor, servet abi dalın diyor" can be heard coming from the presidential guard just after Erdogan is seen speaking with his bodyguard.

Four of the attackers ganged up on Aziz - knocking him to the ground with punches to the head and repeatedly kicking him in the chest and head before police drove them away.

Last month, Turkish warplanes bombed Kurdish fighters in Iraq's Sinjar region and YPG militia in Syria.

The Turkish leader also said he believed Washington "will knock on our door on the issue of Syria", in quotes published by the Hurriyet daily.

The hard line that the Trump administration has wanted to apply to peace-loving immigrants who are in this country illegally must apply to visitors who wantonly break this nation's laws.

The Turkish Embassy in a statement blamed the violence on demonstrators, stating they were "aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the president".

McCain and Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, told Erdogan in a letter they sent Thursday that the "actions of your staff violate the constitutional protections of freedom of the press and freedom of assembly enjoyed by all Americans".

The diplomatic incident has sparked outrage in Washington and even prompted the State Department to summon the Turkish ambassador. Seconds later, men in suits working in some capacity for the Turkish government go after the protesters. He added that some members of the pro-Erdogan group were carrying firearms, which made it more hard for police to contain the scene.

"The weapons provided will only be used in Raqqa and its south, they will absolutely not be used against Turkey, this will not be allowed", the minister said.

"We can not turn a blind eye to these actions at home, and we urge you to hold accountable those members of your staff who violently attacked peaceful protestors in our nation's capital".

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC said he wants "people prosecuted".

This isn't the first time that Erdogan's security detail used violence on American soil to suppress dissenting speech.
