He may have trouble paying for it.

"The Turkish currency and debt crisis of 2018 is an ongoing financial crisis in Turkey with international repercussions due to financial contagion. It is characterized by a plunging value of the Turkish lira, high inflation, rising borrowing costs and corresponding loan defaults. The crisis was caused by an excessive current account deficit and foreign-currency debt in the Turkish economy in combination with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's increasing authoritarianism and his unorthodox ideas about interest rate policy.[1][2]"

There's a war against both Cross and Crescent and the gods you must listen to and obey are the gods of the copybook headings. Refusing to read the memo on your desk will neither save nor excuse you........
I have a certain notoriety among the lesser gods........

Take no notice of Erdogan. His words sound like nothing but rhetorical hype uttered for the shock-horror effect.
