So far, Adolf Erdogan and Angela Merkel's other friends have obviously not succeeded in fully decapitating the famous German sense of Humour ;) enjoy it while it lasts....
Nearly 2 years ago I wondered if Obama was terminally naive or working for the "dark side". Since then I have definitely stopped giving the benefit of the doubt to both: Merkel and Obama.
For those who are still suffering from the Pollyanna syndrome, this advice (the source of which I have lost) may come in handy:
"When the consequences of naivety are the same as the consequences of malice, it is wiser and safer to assume malice."
