Nuclear Turkey?

Reader comment on item: Is Turkey Going Rogue?

Submitted by Alexandros (United Kingdom), Jan 10, 2014 at 10:59

As it was already known, Turkey has planned the construction of nuclear energy factories, a few days ago the Turkish government signed an agreement with Japan for building those factories, but the most interesting thing is that the agreement also predicts the enrichment of Uranium! This means that someone in Turkey is planning to build nuclear bombs. In addition to this, if someone combines the space programme of Turkey, in which the launch of at least 16 satellites is planned, plus the missile programme with high expectations of ballistic achievements, the conclusion is that not only someone is planning to build nuclear weapons, but also wishes to have the ability to launch them!

The important thing of course is that all this is not planned by one person, Erdogan in our case, but this is a national Turkish plan, made by all the political forces together and followed by all, because all this has started when the army and the Kemalists were in power. In my mind this proves, that even though the political powers in Turkey have a conflict of power inside of Turkey, when it comes to foreign affairs they follow pretty much the same plan, they have the same nationalistic and imperial ambitions and can never be trusted as a strategic ally.
