Thank you Louie Gohmert for revealing Obama's plan so that we may all praise him for restoring a monarchy! Plus, restored Sultan Bayezid III lives in New York, so we get a pro-American Sultan ruling over Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Iran! Yaaay!

Kym, just to make sure, you understand that this is a joke?

Pretty sure that's the point of the thread.

Nah, if that were the point it would be in 'off-topic social'..... :-)

To be fair to KYM, satire pertaining to a real historical monarchy is not in the strictest sense "off-topic."

I've had some issues with Kym's literalness before.   Just making sure.

Maybe it's talking about the argument that the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire, though not mourned in the way the fall of the German, Austrian and other monarchies are, was the root cause of contemporary problems in the Middle East and its relations with the West. While that itself is not unreasonable, the problem was much more complex (as my Kingdom of Syria thread will show).
