As far as war abilities, let me assure you - if attacked Turkey will respond with all its might, so do not try."

LOL, more lame bravado!Im sure Turkey "will respond with all its might" but the question you should be re my post is that would its "might" be any good when you have a President who is going around dismantling institutions that gave Turkey one of the most powerful armies in the Middle East(after Israel).Erdogan is highly unpopular among the Turkish military,many of whom still admire Israel and seeit as a friend.In a case of war, large scale defections and coups are not unimaginable.

Also I have no idea you are advising "not to try" attacking Turkey,indeed it is Turkey which is intent on imposing its hegemony on Kurdistan,unstable Syria and the Eastern Mediterranean as well as allying with the gangster state of Iran.

Erdogan walks among a ruined economy propped by Islamic finance falsehoods and a "Turkish" nation which faces a Kurdish majority by 2050.
