Turkey is unwinding. Erdogan won’t be thrown out without a lot of bloodshed.

“Erdogan won’t be thrown out without a lot of bloodshed.”

He’s fired dozens of military officers. (Gosh, who else has done that?) He has installed men he feels are loyal to him. Like Louis the IX he sees himself as the state. Any attack against him is an attack against the state. Historically, the Turkish military has a long and distinguished record of committing atrocities. They haven’t in recent history because they’ve been seeking entry into the EU, which Obama has championed. (It would be a disaster for the EU.)

So, yes, it’ll get much worse before it gets better. I wish we didn’t have a base there and I hope we’ve removed the nukes we used to keep there.
