That prediction, of course, could not have been more shortsighted. During the past decade, Turkey has become the rising power in Europe, arguably the world’s most influential Muslim country and a dynamic inspiration for young Arab reformers. Turkey is the only European country that has grown in power since the financial crisis and the start of the Arab uprisings. While European economic fortunes have contracted, Turkey has one of the fastest growing global economies. Turkey may even now be more powerful in the Middle East than Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. This is all supremely ironic for a country long excluded from positions of power in NATO and which has had the door to the European Union slammed shut in recent years.

Turkey’s rise has been engineered by its brilliant, proud, and often prickly prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. A devout Muslim, Erdogan has revolutionized Turkish politics by challenging his country’s historic commitment to secularism and introducing a greater role for Islam in Turkish politics. Under his leadership, Turkey was, for a time, the only country that managed decent relations with all the regional powers, including Israel, Iran, Iraq, and Syria. Long a geographic bridge between East and West, Turkey under Erdogan became the go-to marriage counselor in the violent and unstable Middle East — mediating secret talks between Israel and Syria, building a close strategic relationship with the Israelis, and nudging Iran to be more reasonable on the nuclear issue.

Managing relations with others makes you a superpower?

Last time I heard the Middle East is still violent.

I didn't see any of this or the rest.

What a waste! Such a great country with so much power and influence all over the world to be excluded from such centers of power and even has to beg to be accepted in the EU.
Unfortunately I had no idea it was a ...muslim country and so influential in the Muslim world because most of the Turkish posters here keep claiming that their ties with Islam are very week.
What really bugs me is why don't they attack the EU. I believe the EU is very lucky because their size is bigger than Cyprus or Luxemburg or Malta or San Marino or the Vatican otherwise they would have blasted the EU out of the map.
But be patient my friend. When the EU will one day apply to join Turkey then you can teach them the lesson they deserve.
It is indeed very true that Turkey's economy is doing very well thanks to the oil and gas trafficking royalties from a number of countries and not so much on its heroin trafficking. Infact the odds are now 60/40 in favour of oil and gas and not the other way around as many are unjustly claiming.
So do not worry my friend. Nature always takes care of the earth's waste one way or another. Soon I hope.

GO, TURKEY. Better than the loser Greek pigs, anyway. Greeks hate even their NATO allies. At least Turks have a better army and a more respectable past.
