Reader comment on item: Turkey's Erdo─čan Gambles and Loses

Submitted by Chavoush (Turkey), Mar 20, 2016 at 03:40

Thanks Mr Pipes...Great article. I wish you had also depicted the terrible situation in South eastern region of Turkey. In the last two months Turkish security forces destroyed many towns and other urban areas beyond recognition. Dozens of civilians were burned alive in their homes. The situation there is not any different from those in Chechniya, Syria or Iraq.

Sadly, there is not any meaningful reaction from international organisations and the world.

I did allude to it and mentioned the possibility of civil war.
