Erdogan's embarrassing company

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is becoming embarrassed by the company he keeps.
The al-Siyasseh Kuwaiti newspaper reported yesterday that the Turkish Embassy in Damascus has sent a report indicating that pictures of Assad with Erdogan, Ahmadinajead, Nasrallah and Meshaal all together were starting to appear on walls in Syrian cities.

Erdogan’s office was not pleased considering that a raging campaign in the US media has taken a life of its own after the Gaza flotilla incident in which it was clear that Erdogan may have facilitated and taken advantage of its outcome to show a level of outrage foreign to most leaders. Even the US Congress is weighing-in against Turkey with threats of new laws.

Orders were sent to the Turkish Ambassador to Syria Omar Ohanon to alter from this course. Ohanon made the call to Walid al-Moallem, Syria’s foreign minister, asking that Erdogan’s pictures not be posted on walls.

Erdogan decided to move against the West. I find it disingenuous he now complains his policies are now harming his image. When you lie down in bed with radicals, don't be surprised when you wake up with them.

Yes, NormanF: or like lying down with vampires, you can never go back to normality! You are forever undead!
