COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN
Erdogan is a very strange man.
Talented, hard-driving, having extreme prejudices, secretive, violent, and at times extremely erratic.
Some time back, Obama made a cryptic comment in the press about you wouldn’t believe how truly mentally ill some leaders are.
I regarded the people he especially had in mind at the time as Erdogan and Netanyahu, who actually share a number of similar personal qualities.
