Erdogan, Turkey’s Netanyahu
by Stephen Lendman
They’re two of a kind, power-hungry despots masquerading as democrats, waging wars at their discretion, killing and persecuting with impunity, hostile to fundamental civil and human rights – scoffing at rule of law principles, values, norms and standards, getting away with high crimes because who’ll intervene to stop them.
They’re valued US imperial allies. Ironically Obama has strained relations with both leaders – forced to tolerate what he can’t change, so far at least.
What can’t go on forever won’t, nor will their leadership stand the test of time. Whether their successors improve or worsen things remains to be seen.
For now, two rogue regimes hugely destabilize the region, allied with likeminded ones, mainly Washington and other key NATO states.
Their war on humanity at home and abroad threatens peace, stability and security worldwide. They’re up for grabs when rogue leaders rule the world.
