Who can feel empathy, for someone like Erdogan?

Thank you, Metin, for cluing me in on the hand sign.

I expect Erdogan to start a Middle East war, as soon as real leaders like Trump and Putin get out of his way. I can envision some Kurdish female soldier, chopping off his head and holding it aloft on a spear. The man's word is so patently self-seeking and worthless, I have trouble feeling empathy for him. When he dies, the prison doors will open and millions will rejoice, as AKP supporters hide their faces in shame. He lifted up his voice and his hand, against God's people. Who can feel sorry for such a one?
