Not a single mention of Erdogan and the AKP's murderous oppression of the Kurds in this article. I guess the liberal Mr. Zunes would disapprove of the Kurds taking up guns to defend themselves against their genocide. Also the Kurds are libertarian socialists so that wont win them any support from liberals.
And I love the soft-pedaling treatment Zunes gives the fascist Erdogan (yes, fascists like social programs - but are still fascist) is getting from Zunes. Does he honestly believe that Erdogan and the AKP will ever allow an honest election again? He just fired or effectively banned from their jobs almost the entire countries university faculty and teachers (including every university dean) and is now banning any of them leaving the country as he re-legalizes the death penalty!
