Why I’m not in a huff about Recep Tayyip Erdogan

As noted earlier, and now will be making even more grounds, Prime Minister Erdogan’s rationale for democracy is in order to destroy it.

Well.  No shit?  That’s why we keep giving billions of dollars to Egypt, after all.

I think this is a tempest in a teapot, and we should cut the strings on all these folks.  Egypt’s aid is a bribe not to go to war with Israel?

Are you kidding me?? Anybody seen the state of Egyptian military readiness?  Okay, the Turks are better, for all that, and Erdogan and restore his dreams of Anatolian empire (while dismantling the Istanbul cosmopolitanism for which the country was so famous).  Meh.

The islamist crowd wants to run full speed to sharia.  I say, push their elbow.  Let ’em.  Help the bastards out.  Because nothing, and I mean nothing, puts the lie to islamic fundamentalism and debunks the idea that theocracies have any future other than widespread misery, like the experience of living under one.  As a few of my favorite political savants pointed out, in succint but powerful terms, all the way back in 1982.
