Opinion – Turkish citizens feeling incresingly insecure and ‘nostalgic’: IPSOS Survey – Hurriyet Daily News

This article published by Turkey‘s Hurriyet Daily News is amazingly understated, presumably this is necessary to assure publication in Erdogan‘s Turkey? IPSOS is a global market-research and consulting organization, headquartered in Paris, so the findings are stunning in their non-information. Perhaps, this is a  new form of fake-news? Thoughts?

Opinion – Iran ‘WILL FALL’. Regime faces TRIPLE THREAT and could be brought down this year – The Daily Star

 

Here’s a fascinating article from UK tabloid newspaper the Daily Star and printed by the Daily Express. This very strong article cites an exclusive interview with Babak Taghvaee, an Iranian dissident and defence expert saying that the Islamic government is facing three key uprisings this year. For me the article is too assertive for the limited evidence which remains the biassed opinion of one person. Whilst, I accept the broad threads, I am not sure that the concept of bringing down the Iranian regime has been properly risk assessed. Surely, the more the Iranian regime is put under pressure, the more radical will be the interventions? Thoughts?
