Turkey's Islamist leader creates his own quagmire
Erdogan's boomerang: Turkey is now at total warHe isn't very good at any of these battles and is at cross purposes with NATO in his battle against the Syrian Kurds who are the only effective ground force against ISIL in Syria. He is clearly the worst leader Turkey has had in the modern era. He harbors a terrorist death cult like Hamas and pushes its agenda against Israel.
It was Erdogan who ended the peace talks with the Kurds, declared war on the PKK, and joined the coalition against ISIS. Now he finds himself in an all-out war across three fronts.
