Tayyip Erdogan, the Prime Minister of Turkey, has caused the resignation of most high ranking members of the Turkish military by efforts by his government to prosecute certain members of the military for subversion, all in an effort to re-create the secular Turkish military into an Islamic military. Will purges and show trials on the Soviet model be far behind? I believe it was Molotov who once said the purges were simply a means of disposing of a bad sandwich.
When Uncle Joe just felt the urge
He wrote down names that he would purge
And sobbing generals heard their fate
And trembling heard the time and date
And so it is with Erdogan
Who says the generals erred again
By talking softly of a coup
Some time ago, around 02
It seems some things just never change
The sandwich falls within the range
Of killing all or killing most
With Turkey sandwich now on toast
