Reader comment on item: Turkey: An Ally No More
in response to reader comment: Turkey,Frankly Unexpected

Submitted by havas (Turkey), Nov 3, 2009 at 11:53

I read all the comments here,so you say this,

Turkey must shut its border with iran and syria.must always defend israel against the phalestein,must fight against afghans,and finally should have supported war for democracy in ─▒raq.but on the other hand muslim turkey dont belong to europe ,must definitly stay out of eu,always obeying west.

and we say, Turkey is still on your side. economy,turizm and military is heavily dependent to west. including israel. many foreign componies work here, foreigners bought lands, banks and everything. so this country is not ours as it was before.it is not so easy to change sides so sharply to irans side especially when our country dont even have natural resources.

but we have 72 million population. we need to get oil and gas. we need to sell our goods. and the easiest places are our neighbours. so since we are rejected people from eu we can give small symbolic political messeges to them and in return we certainly get something.turkey never supported iran to get nuclear weapons. but asked why some other countries like india,pakistan and israel are allowed to have these weapons. they are as dangerous countries as iran.

and a small sharia law from our islamic government. if some man or woman sexually touches--only touching-- under 18 years of childs body ,you go to jail for 9 years. before you finish the age 15 nobody can marry.

when we start to search diffent political and economic alignments, if we are going to be called terrorist ,shariat muslims etc. so be it...
