Not only in the Phillipines but worldwide. From Turkey:
Erdogan told Biden that Gulen is still indulging in activities directed against his government. An influential Turkish editor who is close to the ruling elites, Ilnur Cevik wrote that Biden “put on a Hollywood act in Ankara”. Cevik’s sharp remarks catch the ugly mood in Ankara:
- He (Biden) flashed smiles all day long and pretended to embrace the Turkish people… told our leaders that the U.S. is a country ruled by law… Yes, of course, when the U.S. was clandestinely kidnapping and arresting al-Qaeda suspects all around the world and putting them into the hell hole called Guantanamo Bay, the U.S. was following the rule of law, international law and even American laws. The law in the U.S. is, of course, as supreme as the policemen that kill innocent law-abiding black Americans in the streets and get away with it. So it seems Biden came to Ankara, listened to us with great “sympathy” and then told us what would not happen and flew home.
We're missing a big chance here to globally reframe the Murica narrative and how it is being undermined by white domestic Anti-American terrorists. The US cannot be an "exceptional" nation until we follow the supposed high ideals of Murica.
