Missed Chance to 'End Dictatorship' as Erdoğan Claims Victory in Turkey

Jon Queally, staff writer

Amid the backdrop of intensifying war in neighboring Syria and increasing political tensions internally, voters in Turkey devastated the hopes of moderate and progressive reformers—some of whom clashed with riot police on Sunday—as news spread the nation's much-maligned rightwing President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had reclaimed power as his Justice and Development Party (AKP) had received enough support to re-establish single-party control over the government.

Like Bahrain, Egypt, Honduras, Mexico, Turkey and so-on, no country alined with the United States will ever score democratic policies or representation. Every American in arms can carry with them the stigma of having had a hand in preventing democracy - just like in the United States itself.

America's corporate federal government inc, can and will crush anybody that gets in their way. Supporting anti-democratic criminals by coup d'état is the heart and soul of Americana. Be it Bush-Cheney or Obama-Biden the deaths of millions of innocent peoples continues apace.

The citizens of the United States and its soulless corporations will suffer a deserved backlash.
