Here we are almost four years ago speculating that Erdogan would be sold down the river. Now, not even us paranoids here at Falling Downs saw the coup coming, but it was obvious that, with Assad bunkering in for the long haul, Erdogan and his puppeteers had a problem.
The puppeteers thought they could solve the problem 15 July. After all, you knew they'd play the Gulen card sooner or later.
Alas... HE'S BACK!!!
