While visiting Washington, President Erdogan's security forces attacked protestors near the Turkish Embassy, injuring 11 people, including a police officer. The guards may receive diplomatic immunity, so should the US expel the Turkish ambassador?

Yes. This is unacceptable. A foreign government shouldn't be allowed to send their cronies in to commit violence on peaceful US protestors on domestic soil

Other countries will not take spoiled behavior. Did the protesters get their payback? Maybe.

Aren't their actions enough to strip them of their diplomatic immunity?

Possibly, but no one is sure yet

This country seems to be turning into Rodney Dangerfield.

If American bodyguards did that on Turkish soil, they would be in Turkish prisons right now

Yes they would! Erdogan should suffer for allowing that sort of thing to happen on US soil!

Fuck diplomatic immunity. Drag those jackbooted thugs into the street naked and march them over broken glass.

Yeah that was ridiculous. This isn't their country. They don't attack our people and get away with it.

It's amazing that Erdogan managed to export his thuggish authoritarianism to the American Capitol and that this was still only the third biggest news story yesterday.

Senator John McCain and Senator Claire McCaskill have begun calls to expel the Turkish Ambassador to the United States from Washington in retribution for this attack on American protestors.
