Europe really needs more smart people.

First of all if you think Turkey is not an European culture , change your name. If Turkey is not an European culture, what about Bulgarians, Romenians, Bosnians , Albanians, even Greeks. Not more than 100-150 years ago, all these lands were Turkey. Even most parts of Hungary was Turkey just 200-250 years ago.

Do you know the name of Bulgar is Turkish. First leaders of Bulgarian state 1500 years ago were Turkish called Bulgars. Do you know Hungarians are not Europians, they came to Europe 1100 years ago from Asia. Among them there were Turkish tribes. So there is Turkish blood in Hungarians. For 600 hundred years east europe was under control of Ottoman Empire. There were a lot of Ottoman Prime Ministers who are descent of Albanian, Bosnian, Greek, Bulgarian etc. Unlike you Europeans , Turkish conquered not invade. Turkish lived together with local people, respect them, let them live in their way unlike you Europians. That is why there are still Bulgarian live in Bulgaria, Serbian lives in Serbia. Unlike your descendants Americans did in USA, Turkish did not put all these nations in reservation. They did not make them convert religions.

"Greedy and unshameful Turkish nation still wants full membership against Sarkozy." No Turkish nation does not want full membership. European Union to came to door of Turkey. They offered and ask Turkey to be full member. Of course you do not remember that. If Turkey would accept that offer, Turkey would be a member of your precious union at least 20 years before Greece. I think your union is now so happy for paying Greece debts. When you asked Turkey for full membership, there was military regime in Turkey. But you europeans do not know that You do not know if Turkey did not agree, Greece would not be in NATO today.

You used Turkey against USSR and now this threat is over, Turkish are greedful, shameless. Do not be afraid Turkish people are not in love with you. If we become a member it will be in Turkey's terms not yours. Not Turkey but you do not wanna lose Turkey. When voices rised against European Union and America, a plot staged and Islamic government has been put in charge. A government that first action was to start negotiations for European Union. Although its members were lifetime enemy of Europian Union before that. So do not worry this government will be gone sooner or later. Then Turkey will be on door of your precious union but for other reasons . Then we will see who is shameless.
