EU rescues the sultan....

Reader comment on item: Erdo─čan Leads Turkey to the Precipice

Submitted by Alexandros (United Kingdom), Oct 19, 2015 at 14:39

What Erdogan and his government are doing in Turkey are just becoming more and more shocking. Isolating a whole city and murdering civilians at the south east, cezire, collaborating with all kind of terroristic groups in Syria against the Kurds, being implicated in terrorism against Turkish citizens etc. However the most shocking is the legitimisation of this regime by the EU leadership! Can anybody answer how visa policy and opening negotiation chapters with EU help the Turkish authorities tackle human trafficking? Doesn't this mean automatically that Erdogan uses refugees as a leverage towards EU and that he either can control human trafficking as he wish or that he is just promising empty letters? How can Europeans brag over such negotiations where they are treated as stupids by the sultan?

Do they realise in EU that they have legitimised the exploitation of refugees in order for someone to gain leverage with EU? Is it simply incompetence or the EU has become utterly unethical by supporting and legitimising the most dangerous regime in the world? And even that doctor Pipes assumes that Iran is the most dangerous I would definitely propose to reconsider! Iran is a barking dog, the Turkish regime is a wolf without any remorse or restrains......EU I do not know what it has become.....
