LMAO! Under Erdogan Turkey's GDP tripled, living standards and medical care is much improved, Istanbul has now more skyscrapers than any city in Europe and high speed rail roads are second to only like France in Europe!
Hilarious you mention Saddam, the butcher who gassed children and massacred many innocent people. Yeah that guy with blood on his hands is obviously better, because "he's secular". Iraq is obviously better than Turkey right now!
Also Trump supports Erdogan, look up his thoughts after the attempted coup. There are Trump Towers in Turkey.
How long do those Trump Towers stay there as Turkey becomes more and more an Islamic state?
Secularism is a good thing, it's about time the Middle East learned that, having a bunch of religious nuts running your government leads to third world countries.
There's a reason Westerners now are avoiding Turkey like the plague and Russians too. Instead of embracing the ideals of Western secularism they're running backwards to a mideval/dark ages ideology.
