Time To Bomb Turkey?

Recommended Posts

Pesky Turks, not running with the 'indebt your nation to other nations then sell it off to foreigners in return so your children can become tenants' meme.

Not sure about reserve requirements. Theyre higher than here (c.7% instead of our next to nothing) but not exactly high...hopefully if they take banking sovereignty seriously they'll tell the EU and Euro-pushers where to go.

Doubt it. Turkey's been trying to join the EU since 1987. The Turkish government this year has been pushing hard for negotations to continue in the face of attempts by some EU countries to block talks because of the crackdown on protesters.

I would have thought cracking down on protestors was right up the EUSSRs street. The scenes from Turkey didn't look much different from protests in France, Spain, Italy, Greece over the last few months.

Wouldn't the Cyprus issue have to be resolved first?

Yes, I had family on holiday in Instanbul at the time. While they saw some small marches, the reality they saw was quite different from the rubbish the BBC reported.

when russia and the US do a deal so that syria/lebanon,jordan etc, get hung out to dry,and russia will be allowed ports in the turkish bit of cyprus as a replacement, it will be.

..as they are primarily greek orthodox in russia,it's just reclaiming what is rightfully their brother's to begin with.

no problem,but it will really annoy the turks and the vatican.
