Economist's Take on Turkey

clipped from
Given the West's declining influence on their country's actions, Turks themselves must resolve their political crisis. The best way to do that would be to reject the army's intervention by re-electing the AK Party. The secularists' fears of the creeping Islamisation are understandable; but the AK Party's record does not justify it, and military intervention is no way to avert it. For the sake of the state they are trying to protect, Turkey's soldiers should stay out of politics.

Orange/blue Blue/orange is the only medium to move from blue to orange. AK is one of the best seam-state representatives, competent and able to bring the center/periphery of the country into the process.

Otherwise the "orange" will actually consist in the Islamic world of military dictatorships/strongmen.
