Spring has sprung and the air is thick with booga-booga.
The world is awash with bad guys. Who will threaten America's security next? We're fighting off despots and evil-doers on all sides... Assad, Putin, those towel-heads 'o terror in Iran, the nut job in North Korea. What is poor Donald to do?
Meanwhile, on the fringes of Europe, an even greater despot than any of the above gets a free pass. Why? Because in spite of everything, Erdogan's Turkey remains a NATO stalwart. Remember NATO? That combine of anti-communist nations bound together by our shared values?
Shared values like freedom and democracy and a free press and all that shit?
All long gone in NATO stalwart Turkey.
Where is the outrage?
Where is the armada (powerful) steaming towards Turkey's shores?
Not happening is where.
The current hit-list for the Masters of Empire looks something like this, in order of importance: Syria, Yemen, Venezuela, Iran.
Turkey doesn't even make the long list, never mind the short list!
So how do you solve a problem like Erdogan?
