Not Good: Obama meets with Turkey's Erdogan about Egypt

The worst possible decision on the part of the United States relative to the crisis in Egypt is to side with the Muslim Brotherhood; that is the response Obama has chosen. After that, the worse possible decision relative to handling it would be to engage Turkey's leaders for help in doing so; that is also the response Obama has chosen. The goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is to restore the Islamic caliphate that was dismantled in 1924. That caliphate was known as the Turkish Ottoman empire and was based in what is today Turkey.

Until Turkey's elections in 2002, it was an unequivocal secular ally of the United States. Since those elections, the government there has been making a very hard Islamic turn. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is the Prime Minister and Abdullah Gül is the president; both have been sending strong signals that they'd like to see the return of that caliphate as well.

Now Obama is enlisting the help of Turkey to help aid in the transition of power from Mubarak to the Muslim Brotherhood. It doesn't take much to conclude that Obama is behaving exactly like someone who wants to see the return of the Ottoman Empire. In light of these recent events, there is one country who must absolutely be very disappointed in Obama and that country is Saudi Arabia, which greatly fears a resurrected Ottoman empire. The House of Saud helped to sellout the Turks to the west and the Brotherhood has a long memory. This puts an entirely new spin on Obama's bow to the Saudi King; the recent events seem to indicate that it was to deceive the House of Saud, not show allegiance to it.

Continuing with his global outreach on Egypt, US President Barack Obama called Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the White House has said.

"The two leaders discussed the unfolding events in Egypt and their shared commitment to a future that realises the aspirations of the Egyptian people," the White House said in a statement yesterday.
Mark Knoller, White House correspondent for CBS also confirms this via his tweets.
