Modern countries not base on nation-religion-racial-obligat ory military service-parades.

Turkey need fast modernization and to join EU!

If Turkey not become common country, will dissolve.

Nationalism-militarism-no freedom destroy Turkey.

Maybe if Turkey stopped its brutal ethnic cleansing of the Turkish Kurds... and its terror war against ethnic Kurds living in neighboring Iran, Iraq qnd Syria? Too bad there is no independent Kurdistan.

There is a reason the EU continually rejects Turkey. It is simply not a "European" nation. It is also an economic basketcase... if you thought Greece was bad...
