Turkey in Crisis

Reader comment on item: What Turkey's Riots Mean

Submitted by freedomfirst (United States), Jun 19, 2013 at 17:41

I would like to commend the Turkish people for their valiant and courageous struggle against the dictator Erdogan. He may be good for the economy but he is not good in the long run for the Turkish people who will have to live under his brand of Islamism. That means they will not have freedom, the right to express themselves via speech or the press and all the other liberties that we here in the USA take for granted. He needs to go for the sake of the nation ant its people. What good is it to have material goods if you dont have the freedom to enjoy them!
