    was who funded EuroMaidan, among other groups. Along with training and such.

    By specifically pointing out that the US funds them and claiming the US will fund them more after this apparently as punishment for Turkey and in support of Israel you reduce "Occupy Gezi" to American stooges.
    No, I don't reduce them to anything. I'm noting that there may be groups that will try to use them to destabilize the government in response to Turkey's actions. As I said before, I support them and that holds whether or not they get money from where ever. I explicitly said I supported them.

      The point is that emphasizing US funding seems to be preemptively saying that if there's an incident and if there's protests in Turkey the US is somehow behind them.

      I just don't believe that to be the case.

      When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.
