Turkey's Move to Islamic Autocracy
I'm becoming a genius slowly.

Off topic here, but, I think Erdogan was behind that coup attempt. IMO, the perps were encouraged to do it and expect support by his agents.

Notice also that I am seeing in the US since W Bush what is happening in Turkey, if you are not supportive of the leader, you're not a good citizen by one side or the other.

This article is seriously interesting. Some of the info is dated, some is brand new:

1) It looks like Turkey may have decided it's time to move on from the USA empire. Not sure, but, they're showing evidence of it. Literally threatening jihad is serious. I can't recall another state ever doing this.

We may be in a historic shift deal. If I was an Islamist and ran Turkey, I'd do more biding my time than this because I can't see how Turkey can be what she desires w/o top class arms and no one else is making them outside the west that I am aware of. Maybe China will, Russia seems a generation behind still to me.

2) Some of our "moderate allies" literally threatened to murder American soldiers. Draw reasonable conclusions here.

Interesting piece here on Turkey, and Erdogan himself.  In fact, almost everywhere I turn, it/he is in the news, one way or the other.

Erdogan and the wages of Islamism

Obviously Turkish “delights“ are no longer what they used to be.  Shock

I read a long time ago that Erdogan wanted to name himself as Caliph, the ruler of all Islam. Why has that dropped off the radar?

I too read it a good while ago. I guess these things sound unreal, so it gets shoved under the rug. Its going to be interesting to see just how far he can reach before it all falls down on him.

Simple.  Because the idea (Erdogan to become a Caliph) only existed in sick imagination of Western Media, which had little access to Erdogan's thinking but is always busy writing garbage.  

If you examine what Erdogan actually has been doing last 20 years, his goal appears to be SULTAN and not CALIPH.  The term used in Russian media is often the Under-Sultan...

If I remember correctly, hasn't Russia/SSR been copying/stealing US technology ever since WWII? As for shape, would you expect anything else?

Sorry for the bad news, but your recollection is faulty -- comes from some alternative universe I'm not very familiar with S6

Generally, everyone copies everyone else and steals everything that is possible. For instance, one (of many) F-35 problems is related to stealing late USSR technology which was proven faulty and abandoned in the Su-57 project. In general, copying results in inferior versions that take years to bring to a reasonable state, this has happened many times in PRC.

But in this case it is rather simple to discern the truth: compare the characteristics, don't go just by the overall shape.
