Yes, congratulations to the EU for the Nobel price for Peace.
I believe they have won it fair and square.
They would have had no chance if Turkey had already been a member of the EU because of its belligerent record and provocative attitute as well as their invasion of Cyprus and their provocations toward most of its neigbours.
I hope that now the whole world but especially the EU understand very clearly that there is no place for Turkey in the EU. Turkey and 'peace' are two things that do not go together. They are like 'salt' and 'sugar'.
I also hope that the Turks understand it too.
If we are all around, especially Turkey, in two hundred years from now and they constantly improve their human rights record, may be, just may be they will be considered a good canditate.
