-- 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.

The Westerners fear this man. Primarily because he does not owe the criminal world bank a cent, he's just and simply not tolerant of the West and their ways. Almighty bless him.

Turkey has lost so many oil-rich regions after world war one by Britain and France and Russia imperialism - this hurts the Turks until today! Only Germany had always helped and protected the Turks but Germany had paid a high price and was punished and destroyed after the world wars. Maybe this was an error that the Germans had done? After that Ataturk destroyed Turk's own religion and now Erdogan has a problem.

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.
