Turkish "Delight"

Periodically, we look in on the slow-motion train wreck that is Erdogan's Turkey. At Worldcrunch  a Turk writes about the conflict in the Turkish government between forces loyal to President Erdogan and the followers of exiled religious leader Imam Fethullah Gulen, who form a movement called Hizmet.

The two groups, formerly allies, now are bitter enemies. Author Mehmet Yilmaz take the view both are wrong, one corrupt and the other Machiavellian. It's likely he is correct. Hat tip to RealClearWorld for the link.
