It is only a secular democracy in name. To the extent that the Turkish government calls the shots, the Mullas might as well be in power. Erdogan is a prisoner of tribalism. All that counts is blood relations. Certainly not justice. Those who are under attack and have not and will not attack others need the big detterent. Were it not for that, one wonders whether even today there would be an Israel. Erdogan may wish to ingratiate himself with the vermin that run Iran and oppress Iranians but that alliance has not staying power because its an evil alliance. Theocracy and ideology of the type Iran leadership clings to, and which Erdogan aspires to, ultimately defeats itself. Sadly when it does, there are lots of innocent victims. But less than if it doesn't.
