Time to Talk Turkey

Okay, yes, consider the source. But this does serve to somewhat reinforce the notion that I’ve had since the few candid (one assumes) conversations I’ve had with Muslim Turks living in the U.S.—that is, that Turkey is like an abused and unpredictable rottweiler chained up in Europe’s back yard which is slowly pacing in circles and unscrewing its tie-out stake. Proudly sexually-repressed teetotalers who drink coffee that strong could be capable of anything. Just ask Cypress. And guess what, they were profoundly ambivalent about the U.S even before we had our most recent couple of wars in their backyard. Aljazeera weighs in too. And before anyone squawks anti-American bias, I’ll just say that it’s not America’s take on something like this that particularly concerns me.
