Thank you Isac,
What you say is right.
We are neither west nor east and better stay so.
And the situations and issues we have here are also not like the ones in the west or in the east.
We donot want any war around us and never want to participate in any.
We have no grudge to any nation.
Reading so hatefull statements and violent ideas in this platform I was really surprised. Once again I felt how lucky I was to be born as Turkish. I know Turkey has still much to achieve. But I am surprised to see how perfect everyone feel about their leaders and their actions. And if not, that's because (for example Obama), is not enough hateful. And some of you in this platform, here have such hateful and violant and also fearful thoughts for the "others". Very interesting. We here are happy people, but are not blind to see the wrongs and faults of us or others.
Anyway, we have our own work. If we are alone we are, facts are facts. When we say we still have lot to do, it must not make anyone feel that we are vulnarable. Come and see. How friendly is Turkish nature and besides how unbeatable if ever attacked. We want peace but we know very well peace needs real force, and we have that both in our hearts and as the power. So stay where you are. Good intentions are far far far away from people like some writing here. They must be very unhappy.
I can see that it is still not the time for good relations, so please everybody stay where you are... I realised here, it is ony to curse and reflect hate, no ears to here to understand who are not your race or reliion,
I am leaving, have no time for this.
Hope real happiness to you all, try to laugh some time, life is not a fight club if you do not force it to be so. Now it is spring time, try to love someone.
