JUST IN: Turkey's finance minister says the US dollar has 'lost its credibility'

Source: CNN
So what? Are they gonna go to war with the US? I just read an article about Russia saying the similar thing. The funny thing was though that they had quotes from Russia saying the same thing earlier this year and every year for the past 5 years or so. I don't think this quote from one minister is actually going to mean anything. What are they doing to do about it?

Having read the title for a second I thought Trump got into a dispute with some random turkey pooping on White House lawn and tweeted something juvenile about our favorite Thanksgiving meal.

Which would probably make a lot more sense than the US getting into juvenile disputes with allies. Not that Turkey is a super great ally but still a NATO member. This will just alienate them even more and strengthen Erdogan. I can't imagine how that benefits the US.

I was ready to put money on the turkey BTW. In our neighborhood wild turkeys roam the streets in gangs of 15-20 and don't take shit from no one.

What are they doing to do about it?

They could tell the US to pack up their military bases into a U-Haul truck and move them somewhere else.

no they will go to the usa and later maybe Europe if they start saying the same about europe, and beg there companies to build something in turkey for the money they create, its going to be even more embarassing than before.

I hear what you're saying and I'm salivating every time I see them but hunting is prohibited within town limits... so unless one completely accidentally falls into a trap of some sort I guess we'll never know how they taste.

If enough of them "accidentally fell into a trap" there'd certainly be one or two to give to the authorities.

I can see a big net flat on the ground and when they are all on top eating the seed, pull the lever and up it goes!

Yeah but the difference here is that Russia is the second largest military power in the world, manufactures nuclear weapons, and can support its economy by exporting petrol. Turkey has textiles and vegetables to keep its economy afloat.

There's a lot of senseless aggression going on right now between many powers. It seems like someone wanted to stir up the markets a bit and cause some chaos in emerging markets. Turkey doesn't seem the least bit concerned by the fact that they are teetering on the verge of an economic crisis, almost as if they are enjoying the ride. What could be their motive?

Who cares about what Turkey has to say. We don't give a dam. If the U. S dollar looses it's credibility in his regime /country, let him start crediting my account with it. He lacks a sense of what world economy is about

Russia is the second power by the number of nuclear warheads. But all of them are in such condition that a large part of them do not fly. Lol! Russia is a collapsed Empire that can not accept this. Erdogan wants to do the same with Turkey. I find it funny when rogue States oppose themselves to country number one.

Erdogan thinks too highly of himself, he should consider the repercussions of his actions. His people (meaning the turkish people) are suffering because of it. People can't buy shit, their buying power has gone to shit. I hope he thinks carefully about his future steps, because this shit ain't lookin good.

Many countries in the world suffers from the rise of the dollar in addition to the devaluation of its local currencies.
The dispute between USA and Turkey is political. USA is hiding a criminal clerk (Turkey point of view of course) and refuse to extradite it to Turkey. Now when Turkey detained a criminal clerk (or at least considering the Turkish version), USA is forcing Turkey to return its angel back and when Turkey refuse since the situation should be solved in the court like any democratic country, USA made sanctions to some Turkish political figures.
USA under Trump is acting like a gang more than a civilised country. I don't know until now how could he passed the medical test before becoming a president!

There is no official medical test for presidential candidates. Even president's annual check-up that is typically made public is not actually mandatory.

The US dollar hasn't had any real value since they went off the gold standard, the only thing that is still giving it value is the fear of their massive military.

You are correct about what you said, but Trump knows that they are economically stronger than Turkey and can basically threaten them. Erdogan shouldn't do the same thing as it can really have an effect on their economy (we have all witnessed this with the decline of the Turkish Lira). I just hope the Lira gets back to its old position soon.

Erdogan and Turkey had better learn something very fast. Turkey is no match for the US. Either on an economical or a ballistic war front, US still has the upper hand. The earlier they realize this, the better for them. It appears to many people that Trump doesn't know what he is doing. And that there is what I think is his strength. He acts sporadically in a way that makes people underestimate his capabilities. The dollar might eventually lose its strength but that might not happen anytime soon.
