Actually if allowed to-Erdogan Will Become Another Assad! He not only sounds like him but he's off to a pretty violent start in June alone-with 5 Innocent Civilians and Two Policeman Killed and 1 in a coma! The man has gone Berserk!!

"The same game is now being played over Brazil," Erdogan said. "The symbols are the same, the posters are the same, Twitter, Facebook are the same, the international media is the same. They (the protests) are being led from the same center.

"They are doing their best to achieve in Brazil what they could not achieve in Turkey. It's the same game, the same trap, the same aim."

Mr. Erdogan just who is giving them the excuses if this is a foreign conspiracy since you are not hearing and listening to the demands of the Gezi park protestors. They want no shopping mall and new hotel development being built on Gezi park site and in fact you are the one who is adding more fuel to the fire that will cost you your legendary and what you stood for Turkish people. Damn it, it's only a green park for people who see losing their recreational activities in place of profitable buildings project being built that don't benefit them expect creating few jobs and opportunities for business men. are you so deaf and blind and lack of political wisdom to see what is going on your courtyard like Mr. Assad. just look what he is done to Syria by ignoring the rights of these people demands and consequences as result of your total blindenss and don;t want add more words here.

It's time for someone to suggest to Erdogan that he seriously consider the possibility that he might be turning into a jew without realizing it.

"Earth to Monkey Cage Residence housing PM Erdogan. Come in, Erdogan.
Do you read us?
Message as follows:
Protesters are the same just as you suspected. STOP.
They have unlimited financial power and have infiltrated every aspect of your government and your household. STOP.
You cannot turn your head and not see one of their operatives. STOP.
Best case is they feed you tranquilizers and force you to perform karaoke on the streets for money. STOP.
Recommend you dive from top of ivory tower. STOP."

By Jove, I think he has a point. The "foreign-led conspirators" to which he refers are indeed foreign to him: they are his own people, and the people of Brazil, and the people of Egypt, and the people of .... the world. The World 99% is foreign to the 1% power hounds who want to own and rule over all.

You nailed it. Long live the counter-conspiracy to the 1% by the 99%.

"I was not the one to invent lies: they were created in a society divided by class and each of us inherited lies when we were born. It is not by refusing to lie that we will abolish lies: it is by eradicating class by any means necessary."

Obama administration has been very silent over the demonstrations spreading throughout Turkey and Brazil for obvious reasons of not getting involved in local politics. Normally, our presidents have the urge to exhort demonstrators to pose their grievances and disastifactions with their governments in the cause of freedom and democracy. Afterall he made his "I'm one of you" speech before the Turkish parliament in 2009 that was well received throughout the Muslim world at that time. But in these cases, he has to refrain from his ideals and hope for the best that both countries will resolve their differences with the people.

This world is one big mess. Perhaps we should go back to the "big bang" and start over.

It's looking like we're going forward to the "big bang." Hopefully there will be something to start over with.

Having traveled to Turkey several times I was surprised to learn that the country only ranks 90th in the UN Human Development Index. Seeing how Mr. eEdogan and his lslamist fellow travelers are handling this crisis I can understand why.

the country is a lot richer than its average education would make you believe. the educated are very skilled and this is their uprising
04:31 PM on 06/23/2013
Here's what I am trying to understand: why don't these educated and forward thinking people enter politics themselves? I know exactly the strata of people you are referring to, so why aren't they helping to shape the political landscape more? Those civil servants can later become the champions of civil rights.

If you are sure, you've stopped listening.

Both protests have the same source...governments that refuse to listen to the needs and desires of their people.  The difference is that Erdogan (who could have been a real hero for Turkey) has chosen to take the "dictator's cop-out".  He blames the protests on foreign agitators, when it is quite obvious that the protests are a reaction to his government's over-reach and over-reaction.

There's an intersting analysis from Asia Times that is a pro pos of Erdogan's theory: When popular uprising explodes in China and the Chinese government acts with force, it is likely that the USA won't overreact by calling on China's strong police tactics becasue, wel....it happens in other countries as well.
