Instability Continues to Rock Turkey
May 13 (EIRNS)--Reflecting what Lyndon LaRouche has described as the increasing ungovernability of governments throughout the world as a result of the drive on the part of private Anglo-Dutch international financier circles for a new British empire based on globalization, instability continues to rock Turkey.
On Sunday, at least 1 million Turks demonstrated in Izmir, Turkey's third largest city, to demand that the country remain a secular state. The demonstration took place despite a bombing in the port city that killed one and injured 14 on Saturday. The demonstration was the fourth major protest against the government which is controlled by the AK Party. The election of AK Party Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul as president of Turkey had been blocked and Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan was forced to call parliamentary elections for July 22, months ahead of schedule. The AK Party is expected to win the parliamentary elections. The country will thus continue to be divided and will be increasingly ungovernable.
