Turkey

The mansion that once served as the United States Consulate in Istanbul has been reborn as an outpost of Soho House, a network of clubs across Europe and North America. CreditTara Todras-Whitehill for The New York Times
The New Yorker has a story about Turkey, Erdogan (President of Turkey), the Kurds, Syria and ISIS wherein I found this tidbit:
Turkey’s strategy would seem to be muddled, if not outright contradictory. But a truism of international relations—one often used when speaking of the United States—is that you can’t understand a country’s foreign policy unless you understand its domestic politics.
This goes a long way to explaining why the our foreign policy is so muddled. It's because our internal politics is such a snake-pit.
