Dear Mr. Tovi

Reader comment on item: Goodbye Ankara
in response to reader comment: Turkey at the Edge of Its Destiny

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Sep 20, 2011 at 11:39

Dear Mr. Tovie ,

Let me tell this to you in clear terms. NATO was originally created as a tool to checkmate Soviet designs and Turkey was willing to defend itself from Soviet designs so Turkey signed up onto that. Now in a post-USSR scenario , the member countries need to think and reinterprate their interests accordingly.

Turkey needs to set itself as the biggest defender of order and stability in the West Asian and North African region and in order to do so Turkey needs to ensure a peaceful demise of Western presence in the region , once and for all. As the second largest coalition member , Turkey should have all the assistance from its NATO allies to be the only one designated country to protect its own interests in the region, NATO should think about their economies and stop spending in the West Asian or North African region. Period,

I believe that to get out of its present problems and create a new and more vigorous civilization , the Muslims need to spread far and wide. Europe , Canada , America herself , Israel and Australia are the likely places where Muslims should look to emigrate , preach and learn more things. This is the only way Muslims can suffice in the 21-st century .

I would love to know your views on the same.

Take care

Debanjan
