Comments on: Erdogan loses his chance to become Turkey’s Vladimir Putin http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/06/08/erdogan-loses-his-chance-to-become-turkeys-vladimir-putin/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Nikos_Retsos http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/06/08/erdogan-loses-his-chance-to-become-turkeys-vladimir-putin/#comment-1058778 Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:46:14 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=41033#comment-1058778 Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan was certainly trying to either reach the statesmanship and fame, or become an equal to Kemal Attaturk, the founder of modern Turkey. Kemal Attaturk achieved his Turkish glory at a different time by public massive gatherings and exclamation, whereas Erdogan was clubbed by the voters in the age when public media and voters are well-informed and cast their votes individually.

Russia’s economy is now smaller than Italy’s. Let’s think about that. Largest country on earth (11 times zones) stretching from Alaska to Iran…. produces the same value of goods and services that Italy does. Either very lazy people, or very bad leadership. Take your pick :)

What was he going to become, a fetid mix of Putin and Khomeyni or an ayatollah in a suit, undermining the remnants of civil life and liberties in Turkey? Gnawing away at the institutions like that insidious Mursi, finally to turn Turkey into a philistinic shantytown? This man’s vision of culture is giant shopping centres selling headscarves.

It happened to the Germans in 1933.
