The Situation in Turkey

New Yorker

I traveled in Greece and Turkey back in the Seventies. Of the two countries, I liked Turkey the best. But since then, both have gone downhill badly.

The troubles in Greece have received more publicity – but this article describes the troubles in Turkey – with some names not familiar to American ears – Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Ahmet Davutoğlu.

America has not not done much good in either situation – and has even made the situation worse.
