Reader comment on item: Turkey, Still a Western Ally?

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Dec 5, 2007 at 16:19

I don't see it. Russia, China and Saudi Arabia are more hostile than what Mr. Pipes concludes. To say that Turkey is in middle status is correct, but the aforementioned countries are further toward the rival end of the spectrum (as compared to being co-operative).

I issue this challenge: how far has China, Russia, Saudi Arabia or Turkey progressed in each society in maximizing the overlap between freedom and truth? Not as far as the coalition of willing, or of New Europe, by my reckoning.
