The podcast for Gregory Copley's discussion at 12:30 this morning on the John Batchelor Show about Erdogan isn't posted yet at Audioboom, but I strongly suggest that every reader here make the effort to listen to what Gregory has to say.
Erdogan has been treated as a blusterer here in Washington and as an annoyance in Brussels, but there's been a self-blinding aspect to these estimates because NATO hasn't wanted to even consider ejecting Turkey from the alliance. It turns out Erdogan has taken full advantage of that.
Odd; everyone's focused on Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. Gregory's report makes it clear that Turkey slipped through the gaps in attention.
Check at Audioboom (link above) around noon today; hopefully by then the podcast will be posted.
