The elation is warranted in rough proportion to the desperation of the situation. In other words, good news is, like most things, relative.

 
Don't Rejoice Yet: Erdogan Could Still Win
Articles - June 15, 2015
 

For 13 years, the escape routes from Turkey's political haunted-house have been shutting one by one. Suffocation seemed inevitable.

An Iranian-Turkish Reset
Articles - July 22, 2014
 

Earlier this summer, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani paid a very public two-day visit to a surprising locale: Ankara, Turkey. The June trip — the first of its kind in nearly 20 years — represented a significant evolution of the political ties between Iran and Turkey. 

 
U.S.-Turkey ties in danger: Column
Articles - May 13, 2014
