Turkey is a secular, well - built republic which is strongly protected and all the strength comes from the blood of -so called- Soldier Children, shed on Anatolia`s beautiful landscape in The Freedom War. In this war which was during the last period of Ottoman Empire which lasted 500 YEARS in the Anatolia and region surrounding, with the capitol ISTANBUL, ex- CONSTANTINAPOLIS, Turkish of Anatolia not only fought with some so called European but the WHOLE WORLD, and as a result those kids who were killed by all the armies and the forces of the world, with dignity and courage, proudly presented their lifes for the freedom and prosperity of the Anatolian Turks today.

The Anatolian Turks are good believers in God and God helps the beloved ones. Their most important tresure is secularity at the same time. These people with a population of 70 000 000 mostly young and university educated would neither be a fool to get involved with provocations and loose time with these political games, nor loose even a smallest piece of land that even a single drop of Mehmetcik Blood was shed. They respect their martyr and protect the present that has been entrusted them in the same way,when and if the day comes.

They are in peace with all of their neighbours as well as all of the world and since they are very well avare of the strategic importance and value of the land they have, they would do nothing but smile to the provocations of some cruel intentioned beeings which have nothing to do with the reality. What is the reality?
REALITY: Although the small brother tried to beat up Turks of Anatolia in the past, several times, it doesn't change the fact that they are brothers, the brothers who love each other as well.
