    BBC News - Are regional issues splitting US and Turkey?

    I used to have some respect for Turkey as a potential ally.

    But Turkey's support of Iranian nuclear capability and its anti-Israel boat of terror has made us all conclude that Turkey is just another state full of Muslim fanatics and anti-civilisation sentiment.

    My feeling is that the Turkish Muslims will soon enough have to be classified as yet another Muslim threat and we will have to deploy military tactics in the Turkish border areas to support Turkey's enemies.

    We need to be supporting Greece, Armenia, the Kurds and Israel as they seek to defeat Turkey.

    TURKEY IS NO LONGER AN ALLY, BUT JUST ANOTHER MUSLIM PROBLEM TO BE DEALT WITH.

    "Potential" ally? Turkey was instrumental in bring about the downfall of the Soviet Union.

    It's unconscionable that anyone would suggest they are anything but an ally.

    From the State Department International Religious Freedom Report 2009

    Hardly an Islamic state or Muslim threat. They're definitely going for dominant regional country and they still remember the days of the Ottoman Empire, but barring a fundamentalist Islamic Revolution, Turkey is not threat for religious reasons.

    The Schengen Area
    Schengen Area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Prime Minister of Turkey is speaking of the 'Scham'gen Area in reference to the Schengen Area within the EU. "Scham" means in Turkish Damascus, and it was the administrative unit to rule these lands before 1918.

    Turkish Dilemma
    Once a reliable Western ally, Turkey is now going its own way in the Middle East. And nobody in Washington or Brussels knows what to do about it.

    (...)
    Americans tend to benignly neglect other countries until they become a problem. And until just the other day, Turkey was a fun tourist destination; now it's a problem.
    (...)
    Senior Obama administration officials have begun to worry that the West has "lost" Turkey; Defense Secretary Robert Gates recently fretted that Turkey is "moving eastward" and blamed the European Union for blocking Turkey's aspiration for membership
    (...)
    Over the course of the last decade, the country's diplomats seem to have taken a leaf from China, whose doctrine of "peaceful rise" dictated harmonious relations along its borders and a relatively low profile in global diplomacy. Turkey's policy of "zero problems toward neighbors" smoothed away conflict with Middle Eastern partners, including both Israel and Iran. Through a series of bilateral agreements, Turkey has established a visa-free zone, and it hopes to establish a free trade zone in much of the area once occupied by the Ottoman Empire -- without, as a Turkish diplomat pointed out to me, seeking to re-create Ottoman hegemony.
    (...)
    And Turkey, no longer content to reduce friction along its borders, dreams of bringing a new order to the Middle East. "[T]he world expects great things from Turkey," Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has written on this website.
    He might be wrong there, but what's clear is that Turkey expects great things from itself.
    (...)
    Perhaps all emerging powers reach this inflection point, where nationalistic pride almost compels overreaching. (See under: Brazil.) But Turkey is the only emerging power located in the Middle East, a region where supreme global conflicts play themselves out. A peaceful rise in East Asia is no great feat, but try living next to Iraq and Iran without antagonizing somebody.
    (...)
    Paul Salem, director of the Carnegie Middle East Center, recently observed that (...) Turkey has a great story to tell: not the reconstitution of the Ottoman Empire, but the rise of a democratic, free market state in the Islamic world of the Middle East. Salem described Turkey as "the only country in the Middle East actually pointing toward the future." That is what is known as soft power.
    (...)
    This administration is prepared to take counsel from rising powers. (....)
    "We're trying to give them their place in the sun," says the official with whom I spoke. But how can they accord Turkey its place in the sun without acceding to a view of the Middle East that Washington does not and will not accept? "When you come up with that," the official told me, "let me know."

    The Turkish Boat of Terror directly threatened Israeli territorial integrity, which is why our heroic Israeli allies shot dead the terrorist bastards.

    God Bless USA and Israel in the global war on Islamic Terrorism.

    We need to give Greece bombs to defend herself from the Islamic Extremists in Turkey. We also need to sign a defense agreement with Kurds and immediately establish a Kurdistan on land currently occupied by Turkey.

    Turkey is completely unreliable and we must no longer see fit to prop up this failing islamic state of terror.

    There is unfortunately Islam paranoia going on. We do not see anyone as our judge and we won't play ass-licking to avoid being stigmatiziced as Islamic fundamentalists or something other as that Hindu-Fake does.
