Submitted by Lars nielsen (Denmark), Feb 7, 2013 at 03:26

Mr. Pipes in his comments suggests, that Turkey is leaving the West. But what are their alternatives ?

Turkey does not qualify as a member of the European Union. But probably and hopefully, it will remain a memberstate of NATO, because membership of NATO provides most security for the country.
