-- Erdogan as important to Turkey as Ataturk, and trying to shape it in his own image as significantly as Ataturk did decades ago.
-- They’re at the opposite ends of the spectrum in their beliefs: Ataturk was a militant secularist, Erdogan a committed Islamist
-- Erdogan’s rise shows arc of Turkish history, from democracy to an ever more theocratic authoritarian state
-- This all matters because a more religious version of Vladimir Putin is now at the helm of the biggest, richest and most militarily powerful US ally in the region.

Not the World but the West is worried about Turkey, because Turkey is no more a defacto colony, because Turkey is not always on the side of the USA and its allies, because Turkey can cooperate with multiple countries, sells weapons to Indonesia, Malaisia and Azerbaidjan and buys weapons from Russia or China, without asking for permission from its masters.

Bias and false journalism. It’s pretty clear this channel doesn’t like Erdogan or maybe they are not happy with the failed coup of the pro American military😂

How two feuding countries are tearing apart the Middle East.

The Saudis and Iranians have never actually declared war on each other. Instead, they fight indirectly by supporting opposing sides in other countries and inciting conflicts. This is known as proxy warfare.
And it’s had a devastating effect on the region. Countries, especially poor ones, can’t function if there are larger countries pulling strings within their borders.

And that’s exactly what's happening in the Middle East. The Saudi-Iranian rivalry has become a fight over influence, and the whole region is a battlefield.
