THE FIRST CLUE OF ERDOĞAN’S TREACHERY: 3 November 2002. He wore his Islamic green tie for his election night victory speech. How many noticed this?
THE FIRST CLUE OF ERDOĞAN’S END: 30 July 2003. He “rode” (so to speak) a horse named Cihan for two seconds. During this spectacle he revealed his primary traits: arrogance, ineptitude and a profound lack of grace. Accordingly Cihan, a name meaning “world,” rejected him immediately. If only we had elected this wise, courageous horse as an opposition leader. Unfortunately, the noble Cihan died on 30 December 2007. His so-called rider, Erdoğan, lives on politically, but barely. He now survives on a diet of deceit, lies, rage and flattery. He is likely to be sent (or flee) to greener pastures soon, rejected at home, rejected in the world. (Photograph and film montage below.)

ANOTHER COWBOY APPEARS AT THE CORRAL. THE HORSE'S NAME? METO...FETO...SCHMETO...? SOMETHING LIKE THAT....
Ozymandias By Percy Bysshe Shelley
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:
