Japan not so fussy about who they talk to these days. Turkey is now an anti-Western country in large measure. While Japan gets closer, the West is moving away. Erdogan is an Islamist and certainly no believer in democracy.

Some might say same about Trump, don't you?

Japan not so fussy about who they talk to these days. Turkey is now an anti-Western country in large measure. While Japan gets closer, the West is moving away. Erdogan is an Islamist and certainly no believer in democracy."

Some might say same about the leader of the so called western counties Trump, don't you?

What do you know about Turkey or it's president except news from "western" media?

I don't see the U.S president arresting thousands of teachers and ordinary public servants. Not even talking about people directly associated with the military that supposedly carried out the coup. He has repeatedly made anti-Western comments of late, especially against countries like Germany. He has basically created a situation in which all power presides with him. Very much going down the dictatorial path. It is very far removed anything approaching the secular democracy Turkey might have been on the path to be. There is absolutely no chance they will ever be in the European Union. He has ruined that opportunity completely, perhaps forever more. Maybe Turkey will be better off out of the E.U. but somehow I doubt it. Russia, Iran and Syria as friends. None of which holds a candle, economically speaking, to the major E.U countries.

Reap what you sow. I'm just happy that the E.U woke up before it was too late.

What’s going on? This guy is getting a lot of publicity. Is he the one to navigate Japan safely through the storm? Give him a private jet if he brings peace.

Thought he demanded that already? Hope there paying for all these trips with Visa or Amex, think of the frequent flyer points! Minister Kono probably has a free first class trip coming his way soon. Way to go!

Hope he washed the hand afterwards. Doubt Erdogan would want such bloodthirsty person to leave a stain on him. OH WAIT.
