    Surprising to know Iran has the 16th biggest economy in the world..

    But i guess they rank pretty low in the UN human development Index.

    Spammer.

    Having said that, I quite liked Turkey. People were very friendly and there are great sites.

    Too many Australians though...

    Canavar is our resident Turkish ultra-freaked-out Nazi Nationalist. Been here off and on for years. He's the Joseph Goebbels of Turkey.

    It would be to that Trobinett is referring.

    My point is that i will concentrate my writing habit (which evolves in regular cycles) in this thread. From a theoretical perspective this thread will be spam, as i can foresee, that there will be post by post without any interaction with other users. But i do anyway do not interact much with people here. It's just some chosen ones (if i like or not:eusa_think: ) i can count on one hand.

    The other point is, that Turkey is a country sitting on one of the most valuable real assets in this world and is (you will recognize this in the proceeding thread) a country where is big dynamics from within. Not imposed.
    This dynamic coupled with the prerequisite (economy, soft-power, military, trade etc) of this republic is predetermined to influence actions beyond its boarders. If you agree or ideologically influenced do not agree does not matter, Turkey is one of those countries worth to watch. I do not mean this solely from a foreign politics perspective but also from inner politics.

    Finished saying that, it is normal that there will be posted some basic data. Nothing big, just to make possible a classification in relation to the pivotal region which consists either of a region where others put Turkey in, or where the constituted strategic outreach of this republic is. But i intend not to make this thread a comparison thread, but comparisons are unavoidable on some data.
