Given the genocidal way they both treat minorities like the Kurds it is rather difficult to tell the Persians and Turks apart. I suppose being NATO members Turkey can get away with a far greater body count.

There is no kind of struggle or rift between them three. They know the real big threat to them and are uniting against that threat.

Kurds are not minority.Minorities in Turkey are jews,greek,armenia.
And these minorities have 100 times good life more than kurds and turks.
Dont forget half of population of iran is Turk.
Turkey is the most important country,army of nato.Turkey join all nato operation.Bosna,somali,irak,af ganistan....and in the future nato needs Turkey more and more even for far east.

So you are pro-Turk... and pro-Iranian?

An obvious enemy of western secular civilization. Someone should report this jihadi radical to Homeland Security.

From the Armenians to the Kurds the Turkish history of genocide is well documented. I could also mention what they did to Cyprus. Their participation in NATO only demonstrates to the world that it is not an organization made up of western secular democracies.

Those dreaming of EU membership for Turkey are simply living in a dream world. Iran and Pakistan are much more in line with the Turkish way of living.

Turkey is not reliably ally of USA. Turning down US Army to access Iraq from the North in 2003 and ‘mysterious’ malfunction of NATO radars during 2008 Russia-Georgia war, sent a clear message. Lucky for Turkey Red Greeks has no spine to stood-up for they country

Commentators from North America are you aware that pro-Arab policies of the current Turkish government were fully supported & encouraged by the last two American governments. That's till the last no vote debacle in United Nations.
The goal was set Turkey as an example for other Muslim nations with its secular democracy and curb Muslim extremism in the region. In order to that it was decided that Turkey should engage in the Middle Easter affairs more frequently and act as a big brother for other Arab Nations. This was also a means for USA to control the region through a friendly proxy. Did everything worked as planned,
did the Turkish government acted as the trusted jockey, well I guess not. Maybe you should ask some questions to your representatives about their stupid foreign policy decisions.
