Remember when the common slogan in Turkey (and in Washington and among Wahhabi potentates) was: Assad must go?
It has been revived with a lot of Saudi money given to Donald Trump. A few weeks ago Trump discarded the old Assad slogan, but that was before he discovered the joys of Saudi money.
Maybe Assad will go, eventually. Everybody does, something which gives the American people some hope.
But there is a new maniac roaming the Middle East now, repressing his own people, stifling freedom in Turkey. A better slogan now would be: Erdogan Must Go.
