      I used to have a high opinion of Mr. Erdogan, he has ruined my opinion of him and the 'jackals' he refers to as bodyguards, all they are is mafia type 'hit men', and jerks just like their boss. With the arrest warrants issued against his bodyguards for several cases of assault & battery and him for refusing to hand them over to the US for prosecution, I doubt they will be seen in the USA ever again. That is good, he's an asshole.
