1. I doubt Turkey is really capable of defending herself against a credible adversary like says Israel, USA, Germany or NATO. Meanwhile Greece may be the only exception.
2. NATO distrust Turkey as she is fundamentally an Islamic nation.
3. China merely maintain GOOD TIE with Turkey and have never declared her as an ally. Turkey is much too unpredictable as history told us during WW2. When she found herself with the losing side, she left betray the AXIS and side with the ALLIES. In other words, TURKEY is UNRELIABLE to both NATO or SCO or China or Russia.
1. Turkey I'd perfectly variable of defending itself from Israel or Germany and contributes a large proportion to the NATO budget. It also had one of the largest standing armies in NATO and is equipped with NATO equipment. If for some of reason the US decides that it feels like invading or otherwise attacking Turkey it would be a disaster for the Americans, both militarily and diplomatically.
2. Yes, Turkey is majority Muslim, but ours government is secular and all laws influenced by religion are unconstitutional in Turkey.
3.In world war two Turkey was neutral until early 1945 when it joined the allies to have a seat at the negotiations when the war ended, it was never in the axis or assorted the acid in any way other than continuing to trade with them while neutral as other neural nations did. You may however bee thinking of WWI when the predecessor to Turkey (the Ottoman empire) was allied with Germany.

Europe had been weak ever since the Roman empire fell? Then what was that five hundred year period where European nations dominated much of the world and annexed entire continents as their colonies while the remaining independent nations mostly cowered in fear of being the next nation to have a bite taken out of it?

It totally was their weakest point.

The ruling party the AKP is not secular the opposition is secular and the so called secular people have been oppressing the Muslim majority Turks for 80 years which all Muslims covering their head in libraries .officer buildings .schools or even in parliament are either imprisoned , kicked out or even have their Turkish visas removed ! In Secular Turkey the minority oppressed the majority But Erdogan the magnificent changed all that .

I think you mixed up Italy with Turkey, Turkey was neutral in WWII whereas Italy after hanging Musolini changed sides and was subsequently invaded by the Germans before liberated by the allies. Turkey was and is the most reliable and one of the most powerfull allies of Nato, as proven in the war effort in the first gulf war, Bosnia, Kosovo and now Afghanistan.
Italy won the First World War, together with France, Great Britain and the United States (only from 1917), and lost the Second World War, as the country surrendered. The Netherlands, neutral in World War I, and invaded in 7 days in the World War II.

All the major navies of the world have aircraft carriers, is a fundamental vessel, the aircraft carriers won the naval war in the Pacific during the Second World War, not the battleships.

Thats normal for Turkey trying to build her own technology. Because tech transfer have always been limited by nato. Replacement weapons and other support systems with Turkish mades are high. Turkey is buying technology IP rights and designg her own systems. No blame every indipendent country does it. Aircraft carrier will loom like spanish juan carlos ship. Another project which is much more important is creating her own aircraft. Sweden and Turkey working together to accomplish this and will be ready on 2020.

Turkey has a rigid road map since 30 years and taking it like a long term project.

What do you need the aircraft carrier for?

To deliver Turkey sanwiches?

Or as a training camp for extremist Muslim terrorists - Chechen, Uighurs, Hamas?

Erdogan must have many things in his mind.

Snowflake: You are really like snowflake naive and immature and like all Americans have no idea about the world outside Cali.

Just because Turkey is a member of NATO doesnt mean they cant buy arms from other countries than USA to make you all rich and for you to put a chip in so you can remotely disable the arms.

Wake up and smell the roses outside your country mate. USA is long gone power.

And good luck bombing Istanbul and Ankara again this shows you how uneducated are you outside USA for you not to know the difference between bombing 2 of the poorest countries in the world like Iraq and Afghan and you think Turkey is the same.

Go back to school mate and learn some reality.
