It is not often that a country that is so much strategically important yet under-reported as Turkey gives heartburn to politicians in the West yet force them to keep a poker face.
Despite worldwide attention the events in Istanbul got, there have been no drastically critical statement it’s allies. Reasons are simple and understandable.
Erdogan is predictably reactionary and personal to what is said and done related to him and his management of the country. He despises criticism as strongly as he adores appraises. His reaction to what he perceived to unfairness in time allocation result in a walk out in front of world media and political elite. This behavior would be unimaginable to display for any leader of the world including the Great Leader of North Korea. Of course, analysts in the US and UK are well aware of possible reaction they may get from him should they criticize the handling of people in Gezi Park and beyond.
Secondly, everyone is aware that in combination of provincial as well as pious voters, weakness of leadership in Turkish Armed Forces thanks to mass arrests of the General Stuff and strong police force strategically staffed by Gulen followers gives minimal chance for protestors to achieve any of their demands unless Erdogan pleases to do so.
