Trump and Erdogan: bringers of chaos
By Gwynne Dyer Jan. 21, 2019
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyib Erdogan is much better informed than the American president and probably a lot smarter too, but he is just as impulsive, just as ruthless, just as much a bringer of chaos.
It was Recep Tayyib Erdogan, in a telephone conversation in mid-December, who persuaded Donad Trump that pulling all the U.S. troops out of Syria would be a good idea. Turkey would be happy to take the strain instead.
