Reader comment on item: Crisis in Turkey

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Mar 3, 2010 at 13:27

I read your well informed analysis and all along I waited for your opinion.

Could it be that it is your very last sentence in which you promote Ataturk's vision with military independence as an alternaitve to an islamic invasion?

How interesing that only in Turkey we promote such a solution, when we know tht in most African states all miltary coups take precedene over any democratic process.

Thanks for continually updating us.
