Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan

[just don't mention the whole muslim thing...]

He’ll fit in perfectly.

So, hundreds have died in one of your nation’s mines, marking one of the worst such disasters in years.

There are protests where your political advisers respond to the public protests with a well-placed loafer in a protesters ribs.

What are ya’ gonna say?

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday visited the site of the country’s worst-ever coal-mining accident as public anger mounted, promising a thorough investigation even as he cautioned that “these things happen.”

They sure do…

More than 3,000 miners have died in Turkey’s coal mines, according to official statistics going back to 1941. Last year, 95 workers were killed in mining accidents, up from 78 in 2012, according to miners’ union Dev-Maden Sen. Eleven were killed this year through April, the union said.
