in response to reader comment: Turkey is our ally

Submitted by Mohammed Waza Khiddif Id'ullah (Australia), Nov 30, 2015 at 20:58

MS: "There IS a good excuse: We are allied with Turkey, ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Islamic Brotherhood and every other Sunni entity. Turkey is our only NATO ally in the region; and they are pro-ISIS and anti-Russian and anti-Assad, etc. Should Obama bomb the fuel tankers of his actual allies, just because he pretends to be at war with them? Obama isn't that dumb."

I hope you're being sarcastic here - and when using the pronoun 'we' - you actually mean Obama.

I don't know why Nato should be anti-Russian now - the Europeans have to live next to them, communism is finished and most Russians are actually European. (Finno-Ugric or Slavic but European ). They have a Christian Orthodox heritage and a similar outlook to most Europeans.

Turkey on the other hand has neither of these two things in common. In my opinion and the opinion of a lot of other EU citizens, Turkey should not be admitted to the EU.
