I don’t talk about politics, as a matter of site policy. Even so, I want to say this:
Egypt and Turkey are both currently ruled by dictatorial strongmen, leaders who have been crushing dissent ruthlessly. Both are, right now, embroiled in political protests against the dictators.
Egypt is, reportedly, the site of the largest demonstrations ever, in the history of the human race. The BBC and Reuters are both reporting millions of people in the streets, protesting Morsi’s repressive rule. (14 million, “according to a military source”.) The American media has, so far, ignored the historic events.
I hate seeing people suffer, especially under fanatical and repressive ideologues. I can only hope that, after these protests, both countries will be better off and the suffering of people living there will decrease.
