Agree - Turkey should not be in NATO or in the Council of Europe

Reader comment on item: Does Turkey Still Belong in NATO?
in response to reader comment: Turkey as a threat to democracy

Submitted by Craig Read (Canada), Apr 12, 2009 at 07:12

You are right and could have added:

-invasion of Iraq in the 1990s
-invasion of Iraq [to quell the PKK or get oil ?] during the US occupation
-not allowing a NATO ally the use of territory
-doing nothing in Afghanistan
-public denunciations by the prime minister of Israel and Jews
-Cyprus
-Supporting Russia, Iran and Iran's proxies

Turkey is a farce. It is a Muslim-Asiatic state that has no commonality with the EU or with NATO interests.

It is increasingly fundamentalist and openly supportive of Islamic fascist groups such as Hizbollah.

Turkey is a problem, not a partner.
