How Turkey's president gained so much power. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO -- Erdogan as important to Turkey as Ataturk, and trying to shape it in his own image as significantly as Ataturk did decades ago. -- They’re at the opposite ends of the spectrum in their beliefs: Ataturk was a militant secularist, Erdogan a committed Islamist -- Erdogan’s rise shows arc of Turkish history, from democracy to an ever more theocratic authoritarian state -- This all matters because a more religious version of Vladimir Putin is now at the helm of the biggest, richest and most militarily powerful US ally in the region.

Erdogan is the best.kemalists filthy virus has ruined this nation,oppressed there own ppl for a long time...It's time to teach them a lesson & reestablish the Real Turkey (The Turkey of Ottomans & not kemalists bigots)!!!
yaşa mustafa kemal paşa!
Erdogan is popular not because of his Islamic centered governance but because he feed, educate and house his people. Govt. basic housing is 3 bedroom per family. Any American leader offer that services? You even starved left homeless your Veterans cryIng in the cold rain. After you ordered them to kill for a fee and brainwash them as US patriotic duty to kill people?

This is false propaganda. Carefully structured sentences. The video tells like USA has nothing to do with the coup attempt. It was planned and supported by USA using their puppets which were infiltrated vital Turkish government institutes. Turkey is building its own future despite USA. That's why they don't like.

You know that nothing of the points youre talking about are real. 100% western propaganda. There is no difference between 1800 Usa or europe and now. You hated turkey and the muslims then, and now. I dont know if you are just a victim of propaganda and have to say the exact same thing like the news instead of searching for the reality or not. But you should ask the ones who are living there and use your brain
turkey is a another puppet of usa like saudi arabia

Irrespective of ideologies democracy should prevail. The president should voluntarily step down once is actual term is over, more likely which is 5 years ( as I don't know about Turkish president term of office).

Interesting how you approve of a dictator just because he makes the west happy, interesting aswell how you do not approve of a President who wants to make his country openly religious even if he brought back the glory days upon his country. I used to trust Vox, but not anymore. Your integrity is corrupt.

İ think you have some mistakes about military conditions at 2016 because you have never talked about Fetullah Gülen and his community. Erdoğan and Fetullah Gülen were friends between 1994-2013 and they were helping each other for captured all of powers in country, like judiciary,all the ministry and military also. Since 2002 AKP and other radical İslamists group want to captured militaristic power chair or they want to have some body who service for they but in this video you said "laic military of turkey" but this is not true because before the seperation between Akp and Fetullah Gülen groups,the both side were helping each other for to increase their power in military.İn 2009 the public prosecutor had prepared a file about high rankingTurkish Commanders and accussing them for being "terrorist"!!!After that investigation the high ranking Turkish Commanders was imprisoned for life.Few years later ,in 2013 Akp and Fetullah Gülen groups had conflicted and Fetullah Gülen groups prepared a file about Erdoğan for accusation of corruption.İt was a break point for this mutual relation.After that events balances were changed Erdoğan started to hunt the members of Fetullah Gülen groups and he broke his power in everywhere.This military coup was prepared by Fetullah Gülen groups normally not by laic Turkish Commanders because they were in the jail or they were forced to retiring.After this military coup they returned their jobs even some radical Akp members are criticizing the goverment for this action 'cos they are hate and afraid the laic Turkish Commanders. The military coup is an another case it seems like absolutly made from Fetullah Gülen groups but it is not.However in 2016 the Turkish Military power was not laic or was not want to save Atatürk's laic Turkey.There is a struggle about capturing the power of state between Akp and Fetullah Gülen's groups and Fetullah Gülen's groups lost this struggle.

This is not objective documantry İ shall give you truth 1-Erdoğan was into the islamic Side,but now he change and more secular.when muslim brother elected in egypt,he went there and Said;you must be secular ! İt was very big shock for egyptian right side 2-Erdogan have more power than before,because USA occupied ıraq,afghanistan and Little bit in Syria.USA is trying to create PKK state on this arena.Turks need leadership for treatment 3-EÜ specially Merkel and Sarkozy blocked negotiation and chapters.İt has push him to russia and china 4-coup has organized by USA backed force Fetullah Gülen.He is the one of USA agent and directed by Aaron Füller.they still stay in USA and Germany 5-Global media have 2 Face and never tell truth 6-western clup uncomfortable to him because his country growd very well and they are scaring to this argument

Here, I'm talking as a Turk, I didnt vote for Erdoğan in any election, and yes, he always gain the elections, but it s not abt the being a dictator, its abt the ppl's love and respect for him. Also, the founder of Turkey, ATATÜRK was not a dictator. We loved him, and we ll love until the end of world. You cannot control the Turks with fair, the Western still cannot learn it. If you want a prove look the night of 15 July, 2016! Thanks.

Erdogan is the best Turkish president so far . And you ppl are like Ataturk is great, he saperated religion from government by banding headcovers and force wemon to take headcovers off. But Erdogan is getting religious coz he lets women cover their heads freely so they can live there lives and get educated and go to college without anyone bathers them. Like what is ur problem he is not forcing headcovers. Isomorphic

wE are , Mustafa Kemal's Soldiers everywhere, and waiting in our sleep cell when we get the order , we can easily bring back secular Turkey which was established by Ataturk. We are patient , not only in Turkey , around the world once we get the order we will rain on Turkey in order to bring order... This is not an arabic spring ... Matter of time ...
When a country denies a genocide that happened years ago. It’s a bit dangerous

Atatürk didn't ban scarves. This is so wrong. Even his mother dress up it. I am not happy about current management for some other reasons. But, what I observed here west became more religious along the way. They used to respect hair scarfs as a part of religious thing but now it is mentioned in this video as if it's something should be banned. You know what ! You are becoming more racist and anti-democratic and beyond this you want an unstabilized Türkiye. You wanna control the globe by using your social media joysticks. There are two things the perception and the facts. You can manipulate the perception but you can't change the FACTS!

This is adverse publicity video which has been prepared so bumpkin by the mouth of zionist ısrael trolls. This is full of lies from beginning to end for wrong perception about Turkey and specially President Erdogan. Turkish people and the friends of Turkey know very well what happens and zionist ısrael government is going more crazy. Is zionist israel a secular state? Puah !! Don't let me laugh. Best friends of zionist ısrael are saudi arabia and egypt dictatorship. No need to say that mossad is lap to lap with CIA and its clowns. They announce against Iran that researches nuclear bomb but nobody asks and check of zionist israel's nuclear bombs? They occupy brutally and savagely the Palestin . Democratic (!) and secular (!) world is silent except Turks and Turkey's friends? There is no word from secular(!) and democratic (!) countries all about them?.. USA backed zionist israel is a bandit state.that does not recognise the rule. I wonder Jewish people can not be so much chumps ?

Hahaha yeah Mustafa Kemal was such a great guy.. Except for the fact that he is responsible for the Pontiac Greeks' genocide (over 400.000 dead), the Armenian genocide, during which it is estimated that over 30% of the total Armenian population perished, and the Assyrian genocide with over 50.000 people dead. But that's not important right? He was so liberal and respected human rights so much right?
