There was debate over whether Can Dündar was right to get out of Turkey or stay and face the music. I must say that, with all of Cumhuriyet's 'heavy cannons' now behind bars, apart from him, I am delighted that he can carry on in exile and produce masterpieces like this:

'The pen is mightier than the sword' as the old saying goes and material like this serves to prove the point.

I think he has excelled himself again in his column today, which has appeared in translation in Cumhuriyet's English-language section:
