[QUOTE](Reuters) - Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey could ban Facebook and YouTube after local elections on March 30, saying they have been abused by his political enemies.
Erdogan is locked in a power struggle with U.S.-based Turkish Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, a former ally who he says is behind a stream of "fabricated" audio recordings posted on the Internet purportedly revealing graft in his inner circle.
"We are determined on this subject. We will not leave this nation at the mercy of YouTube and Facebook," Erdogan said in an
interview late on Thursday with the Turkish broadcaster ATV.
"We will take the necessary steps in the strongest way."
Asked if the possible barring of these sites was included in planned measures, he said: "Included."
Erdogan says the release of his purported conversations is part of a campaign to discredit him and wreck his government, which has presided over more than a decade of strong economic growth and rising living standards in NATO member Turkey.[/QUOTE]
Tayyip Erdogan is a fucking asshole.
"at the mercy of youtube and facebook"
If this weren't so incredibly pathetic this would be the most hilarious statement of the year.
