Reader comment on item: Thoughts on the Syrian Downing of a Turkish Warplane

Submitted by havas (Turkey), Jul 2, 2012 at 12:51

iran has big oil and gas reserves.this is why iran can control its people and can act politically independently. iran is from russia and china side. they dont have much human and property rights in these countries . so iran needs wars and enemies and nuclear weapons to keep its people together and quietly obey iran state. if israel someday bombs iran or usa hits iran ı bet iranian mollahs would be very happy to prove to its people one more time that west is evil. iran is and will stay as a real enemy to west for more coming years.

on the other hand turkey have no energy sources and 80% dependent to ıraq, iran and russia for oil and gas. turkey needs tourizm , 75% tourist comes from west. turkey needs export its goods 75% to europe. turkey is highly dependent to usa for military equipments. turkey needs to work in central asia and middle east building constructions. so turkey can not go into war with anybody, not even with syrian rats. also turkey dont like economic crisis in west. not because we love west but because we are dependent too much to west. we are economically partners with west.

so it is not reasonable to call nato to kick turkey out and try to send turkey to irans side. this is technically not possible. turkey can not go into any war with any country unless usa wants so. ı even believe that turkey took permission from usa for changing politics about israel. obviously this was about economic reasons. arab countries are much more valuable for turkey than tiny and not so rich israel ...

... everything going on here is not about islam as you think. it is more about the desire to live in better conditions. we are not too rich people. we want to live better lifes. thats all. thats why we make belly dance politically. and ı cant say ı like this. ı hope we find huge energy sources in our country some day. only that day you may be scared of us. than we can take our revenge from our murderers one by one. but today unfortunately as our enemies suggest we are wolves without teeth.
