Erdogan has established an excellent military industrial complex.
I only really commented given I wanted to add to to topic but corrected your statement that the Turkish are not the only nation that is poorly linguistic. Being from an English speaking nation I find it almost embarrassing that we rely on everyone speaking English and when I read things like "such and such can't speak English" I almost feel compelled to comment.
As for Turkish having fertile land feeding 400mn people, I cannot comment on Turkish agriculture given I know fuck all about it. And I am fully aware they have more to offer the world than just holiday's. But even so, it isn't known for production and is for tourism anyway. As it happens pre-Covid everyone I knew was going to Turkey because of the value of the Lira being a worse performer than Sterling and that was beneficial for Turkey I suspect. That was all I was saying. A devalued currency isn't all bad and shouldn't be an indicator of a nation going bankrupt.
