  •  Erdogan is very popular.... (0+ / 0-)

    There is no way he's stepping down...

    •  He could fail a vote of confidence n/t (0+ / 0-)
    •  It is usually a serious error not to replace such (0+ / 0-)

      a controversial figure for the sake of stability, if for nothing else.  And his popularity among many will begin to wear thin when it is seen he can't manage a few demonstrators.
      I can't imagine that others can't step up and bring a peaceful end to this turmoil.  Bloodshed follows this type of rigid stance.  

      •  He will probably become even more popular... (0+ / 0-)

        After all, he's just implementing a Turkish version of the "Southern Strategy"--dividing and conquering.  I presume that the Turkish government is probably ridiculously gerrymandered in the current government's favor.
