Reader comment on item: Does Turkey Still Belong in NATO?
in response to reader comment: 'A mission and a charter'

You are correct and it is something we should be ashamed about. I am.

Someone sold us a pack of lies and we bought them. Our media kept the truth from us about the way things were before NATO became involved. Our leaders must have known, they get better info than we do.

I started learning the truth from some European newspapers 2 or 3 years ago. Like I said, I am ashamed of the American role in the whole thing.

I took such an easy position with my first posting to draw the Turkish poster out. He seemed to want to portray himself as a secular moderate, while he fits right in with the Islamic terrorists in his thinking.

I've got to go off line for a while.

You are doing a fine job of presenting a sane and correct argument to the world.
