“We are losing Turkey. Sad to say.”
Losing? Turkey is lost.
Erdogan needs a bullet to the brain pronto; the military there better get moving and take him out before he get his hands on the nukes we have stationed in Turkey.
Based on articles I've read over the last 10 years, Erdogan has effectively neutered/purged the Turkish military of its secular-leaning officers - Ataturk's heirs. If this is so, then I do not look for another uprising of "Young Turks" or another Mustafa Kemal Ataturk in the near future.
