On 29 October 2009, the 86th anniversary of the founding of Republic of Turkey, you, Mr President, will meet with the Turkish prime minister. Perhaps this will be the day you both announce the birthday of the Islamic Republic of Turkey. Given what has happened to Turkey at the hands of the United States since AtatÃ¼rk died, nothing would surprise me. And nothing would please ErdoÄan more. And you, Mr President, should know.
