Please make an effort not to react emotionally, as it is easy to fall into that trap, but to remain on a pragmatic, unemotional level, while reading this piece. Since we after all talk about Turkey and you are admittedly very cliose to the subject, I invite you to step into an imaginary elevator, push level 500, until you see all of Europe. From that point of view, high above the clouds you will have , what we call the Helicopter View, from where you may appreciate much more rationally, what I was trying to convey to you.

well ı tell you very honestly. ı really dont want my country to follow usa like its watch dog.ı dont want my country support israel, ı dont want my country to join eu and ı certainly dont want to see my country in the hell of middleeasts either.ı want independent turkey. ı dont want militarily too strong Turkey.ı dont want nuclear power. ı only want full human rights in my country and ı want my country to be rich,strong economy and ı dont want to loose any part of my culture including islam the most. ı dont want wars, ı only want economic ties with every body.in todays world you invade the countries economicly not militarily.

ı dont care how usa deals with the world problems far away from us. but when it is our neighbours like syria,iran,ıraq it matters a lot. because we have commerce with them, we buy oil ,we sell everything. we also have blood relation with these people. and may be you dont know but except iran all this area was our lands for 500 years until 1900 s.

turkey never aproved americas invasion of ıraq. because we know this area and we knew this disaster would happen. saddam like all other arab leaders was a heartless dictator. but he was able to keep the country together. he was friend of turkey. he was enemy of kurds because they were rebelling all the time. america only succeeded to form a friendly state kurdistan here like israel .but kurds are minority there. the rest big majority of ıraq is in caos. baghdat was a beautiful city, ıraq was a rich country. now 1,000,000 peeople died and americans can shamelessly be proud of this situation.also america suceeded to provocate the turkish kurds . and you wonder why we are angry to you. why we object attack on iran. but you have easier answers, calling everybody against your politics, evil muslims.

provocations about islam is white western christian imperializms invent. ı dont believe that 9.11 such a huge attack to americas heart can be done by stupit ,powerless clumsy al qaida or arabs. ı dont know who orginesed it but some powerful people did it may be oil mafia , not saddam,not stupit al qaida.

why america is so good friends with the rest of the arab dictators like king of saudi arabia. do you plan to attack saudi? no. as long as they share the oil money with you ,no problem.

armenian genocide lie is also western white imperialist christians slogan. we turks lived in balkans,caucasia ,europe for 500 years.(america is not even 300 years old) christians killed us. but you dont count dead 5 million turks because we are considered as the invaders there even after 500 years.. and we didnt let anatolia become the land of christians, we beat you here. but you couldnt forget it and started to call the winners of war as genociders. tell me,what happened to turks in europe. was that not a genocide.nobody talks about this. nobody talks about just recently in 1960 s what france has done to algerians and to all africa before. did france apologise? no.this is disgusting.this is your civilization.

ı really believe that western white imperialist christianity is dying.you keep on insulting muslims and keep on racizm and insults.east is rising. china,india,brazil,indonezia,russia and turkey are the futures powers.

we turks realised how to play the game just recently,10 years ago.you ridiculed my previous information about turkish economy,saying that we are still far behind. but ı advise to check google better and you can see wher we came.how rapidly we are improving . and you must know that we turks dont have a tradition of industry at all.we are barbarians. we just started.
