in the poppy field or walking the blood-flood plains of history.......

… One attempts to describe it as it appears in 1915; but there is a danger of being disbelieved, because the prodigal flinging of spring colour over the shores of Gallipoli utterly surpasses in richness the colour of Australia. England doubtless shows something far more like it in spring. The colour ashore is a glowing red — acres of poppy waving there upon the green plain. Neither do we know the Aegean blue in Australian waters, somehow.

The reader, harassed by the war news from this smiling land, may conceive the incongruity of this fair landscape splashed with colour of another sort — the red dust of a moving troop, the hideous discolour of bursting lyddite, and the grey smudge of shrapnel…

Today, apparently, the news from Australia is the return of President Erdogan — and we are told : 

Turkiye “not fully behind” President Erdogan | The World/ABC news….

So what?

Is everyone behind Joe Biden madness?

Is everyone behind the Australian nuclear submarines or Albo's pissy treatment of Assange’s wife?

Is everyone behind the non-elected UK PM Rashi Sunak?

Is everyone in Germany behind Olaf-the-recessionist?

 

And by the way, Australian soldiers in Egypt were not all enamoured with the place:

How we hate Egypt before we left it! It may be a land of fascination to the tourist who drives about in gharris to view its wonders and stay at a European hotel; but to be there as a soldier, to lie in its vile sand, to swallow its conglomerated stinks, to rub the filth off the seats in the third-class train-carriages, to have under your eyes continually the animated lump of muck that the “Gyppo” is, to have your ears filled continually with the vile expressions that the Egyptian conceive as wit, is an experience that makes one so disgusted that few Australians that were there will ever want to see the rotten country again.

nothing against gays.....

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who portrays himself as a defender of traditional Islamic values, has once again labeled the opposition as ‘LGBT’, and insisted that liberal Western ideology will never infiltrate his ruling party or its nationalist allies.

Türkiye’s Supreme Election Council confirmed Erdogan’s decisive victory over Kemal Kilicdaroglu on Sunday evening.

In the run-up to the election, Erdogan repeatedly accused Kilicdaroglu and his allies of being pro-LGBT, and voiced similar charges in his victory speech in front of a jubilant crowd in Istanbul.

Listing off the factions in his rival’s six-party National Alliance bloc, and a pro-Kurdish political party, he asked supporters if they agreed that CHP, HDP, IYI, and “some little guys next to them” are all “LGBT,” to the rousing cheers of the crowd. 

“But can LGBT infiltrate the AK Party? Can it infiltrate the MHP? Can it infiltrate other members of the People's Alliance?” Erdogan asked rhetorically – proclaiming that his ruling coalition and its allies will always stand in defense of traditional Turkish values.

“Every election is a rebirth for us. Family is sacred to us. No one can speak out against the family. Violence against women is forbidden, it is haram,” he said.

nationalism....


Despite the country's extreme economic crisis, Recep Tayyip Erdogan was re-elected on Sunday for a third term. He now holds all the cards to impose a more religious and nationalist Turkey than ever before.

 

Kemal Kiliçdaroglu ultimately failed to defeat Recep Tayyip Erdogan. After two decades in power, the Turkish president was easily re-elected for a further term, on Sunday, May 28, with 52.2% of the votes cast. The fact that he had to wait until the second round of voting to be elected – a first in Turkey – remains scant consolation for an opposition that, despite its united front, was unable to stem the outgoing president's powerful electoral machine and his nationalist momentum.
