SHORTPOD (28):THE KHASSHOGI CASE AND ERDOGAN'S "NEO-OTTOMANISM"

Affirmative Right's Chief Editor Colin Liddell talks about the recent murder of journalist Jamal Khasshogi in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul and how it is being weaponised for geopolitical gain by President Erdogan of Turkey. He contends that what we are seeing here is a geopolitical struggle for hegemony in the Sunni Muslim World between a revanchist "Neo-Ottoman" Turkey and a medievalist Saudi Arabian monarchy that is attempting to use its oil billions to burnish its image with modern PR tactics and appeals to the West.
