How Turkey's president gained so much power.

-- 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.

Ulan ordu ne zaman Atatürk'ün ordusuydu darbede? Bütün milliyetçi, Atatürkçü generalleri Ergenekon ve Balyoz davaları ile hapse atmadılar mi? Halk niye hain, şarlatan, dinci Fethullah'a sahip çıksın? İran'a Humeyni zamanında ne yapıldıysa şimdi de aynısı yapılmak istendi durum bu.

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.
