From elsewhere...

"US support of populist democracy in that part of the world over the last eight years has helped contribute to a giant "failed state" from the Pillars of Hercules to Antioch, with an island of quasi-stability in Israel. When our current president was sworn in, you could drive from Marrakesh to Istanbul with no bigger worries than the occasional border shakedown. Now it's one vast Mad Max wasteland with god-bothering wogs chopping various bits off people who pray wrong.

I heartily hope the U.S. sits this one out, but I'm sure Barry is already drafting speeches in favor of Erdogan and democrazy.
