    How many seats are the Kurds getting?
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    And that Turkey until they get the US onto regime change in Syria will buy oil, treat wounded, sell products, and do little to interrupt ISIL.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    And it stops his run for power. As President, as you had mentioned, little power on paper, but that is not the reality on the ground.

    Good to hear though are they going to actually get a coalition set-up or is it still fairly likely AKP retains some power? Bit surprised to see the chance, the only thing I had really heard on the election was a couple weeks ago on Al Jazeera, with the thought that the opposition wouldn't get enough votes to dethrone AKP, but would pick up seats and make it more difficult. If I recall the thought was CHP (think it was them), and maybe the Nationalist as well, were too secular for majority of Turkey.
