  • 🎬 Video

In recent months Turkey has found itself increasingly stranded on the international stage. They've fallen out with Macron, they're technically at war with Russia and with Trump leaving the White House their US bond is also slipping. So in this video we discuss how Turkey got into this position, why it's a threat to Erdoğan's premiership and what's likely to happen next.

In short Turkey is neglecting everything that resurrected the country from death and improved it in 1910-30's.

Turkish people are suffering because he wants to live in his fantasies. There is no hate between Turkish people and Greeks, only hate is between Erdogan and his party against the Greeks

It's funny how Turkey plays itself as the leader of the turkic peoples while simultaneously trying to make friends with China which literally puts the same turkic peoples in concentration camps

Turkey wants the new ottoman empire in the 21 century. Problem the time of the sword is over. A mindset of 14 th century meets a world in the 21 century. Welcome Turkey

I love how turkey was close on becoming a great power and a very big player in EU and than Erdogan came in and was like ”I'm gonna play Eu4 and HOI4 at the same time but in real life”.

When you call China your 'friend' that's when you know you've got none left.

"Turkey had a historic claim in the area" that had me laughing.
Turkey has literally zero "historical claim" over anything past the Altai Mountains.
It's like saying Greece has a claim over Iran, because Alexander conquered it once upon a time.
Erdogan (and Xi) are too dangerous to be leaders. So much disrespect for international laws and human rights.

The video summarized: Turkey elected Erdoğan.
Lesson: Don't elect egotistical authoritarian right-wing religious zealots.
