    Erdogan isn’t out of the woods yet, I sense after this massive crackdown within the universities he’s ruffled some feathers of Turkey’s local Leftist groups. So aside from rival Islamic fanatics, former allies, Erdogan should be more worried about Turkey’s Leftists whom many of them are “former” Communists working on behalf of Russia.

    Russia on the other hand is hoping to take advantage of this, by being a”friend” to Turkey, but at the same time helps Turkey’s Leftist groups out.
