Firstly "Osmanlica" has been obsolete for a while now and is not relevant to what is spoken (or thought) in modern Turkey. Too bad for you, your mind frame is also a few centuries old (like "osmanlica") as you cling on to the belief that "pashas" still rule the roost....Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if you also believed that horse carriages and camels are still widely used within major Turkish cities..

I've also noticed ... you seem to confuse the secular-Turk with Islam with such a contradictory description as "Islamo-kemalist".. What does that mean ????
And I see you're salivating at the illogical thought that every Turk should be seen as anti-western, almost pro-taliban/Al Qaeda, and therefore too radical to be an ally of the USA.

Never mind the millions of agnostics/atheists, not to mention the millions of others who are very secular and anti-sharia, but naturally we can't let that fact get in the way of your "intellectual" hypothesis now can we ??
Turk = Muslim/radical/anti-western for sure..black and white in your world ???

I wonder if you're capable of thinking outside the "square" or just impervious to change and blinded with your obsessed old hatred for the Turk as only the greek and/or armenian can be.

Not too different from that demented old lady in a "Big Fat greek wedding" running around with a knife yelling turk turk??
Your fanatical, fixated viewpoint coupled with your silly ranting is best displayed by your "smart" addition to "Ne Mutlu Turkum Diyene".....If you were'nt such a sad person you'd be funny.

See this is what I meant by the subject of Turk makes you froth at the mouth, and sadly I can't imagine your clan to be any different..
My latest advise for you would be to arm yourself and to join the ranks of the PKK terrorist organisation up in the Kandil mountain range, preferably before the next Turkish onslaught please .

That may just cure you ... :-)
