Sure You right about Turks became Like Western watching war from TV and etc.But Turkey is still at war fighting terrorism literally everyday. and Since Cyrus War it has been just 40 years. Avarage time period for Turks to make another campaign in Ottoman Empire! You see millions of Turks might be still living in Germany.But They Started to Come Back i see My relatives started to come back to Turkey. But where you wrong is that; Erdogan didnt Betray his citizen. He just did what Turkish People wanted Always. Like Romantism to Ottoman. But Every time They tried to do such a things They killed (eg1960 Adnan menderes) them or Send to Jail(1971.1980 and 1997) Erdogan is the only Prime minister of Turkey Who couldnt change by the Powers You call them to change him.They have tried to change him a couple year back and now Hundreds of High Rank Soldiers Writers etc in Jail because of it.
