You are the servants and Turks are the rulers

Reader comment on item: Does Turkey Still Belong in NATO?
in response to reader comment: TURKEY'S FUTURE IN NATO- OR ANY OTHER SECULAR ORGANIZATION? NOT A CHANCE!

Submitted by Melisa (Turkey), Jul 17, 2010 at 19:28

Why? First of all, Turks have been the shapers of history, not writers like you. Whether you like it or not, we are the ones to decide if we want to stay in NATO or not. You can't have a word to say. If you don't believe me than follow the politics in your country. We dont care about NATO. If Americans dont want to lose more soldiers in Iraq and Afghanstan, they should treat Turkey well. If not, they can move their incirlik base to tel aviv. It is your choice. We have nothing to lose if we are out of NATO. Choice is yours.

Secondly, Turkey is not a member of EU but 90% of the immigrants that are given EU citizenship are Turks. So we are there. Calm down! And we are not going anywhere. Get used to live with your greatest fear and watch your step! We don't like to deal with criers.

Be wise! Turkey is not going to integrate EU but EU will integrate to Turkey. We will make them do. Because EU is not only the old man of Europe but also very sick. We will heal them with youth:)))

Dont mess with the shapers of history. so you wont be re-shaped.

Have a great day!
BS: Somebody wrote that Turks thought Mohammed was a Turk. You are wrong. Jesus was ;)
