Turkish shift

Here is an article which claims that Turkey has moved from a NATO ally to a member of the Iranian Axis over the last 8 years or so. I wonder what Brothers Judd will have to say about this, given its strong “Axis of Good” view of Anglosphere relations with Turkey. I tend to think that the article puts too much blame on the Anglosphere — it’s not always about the West.

Turkey has always been a disguised military dictatorship — only not always carefully disguised.

It was pro-western as long as it was scared of Russia. Now it reverts to its default mode, which is the same mode as all other Islamic countries.

It’s as pro-western at heart as Iran was prior to 1979.
