"Science is the only true guide in life." Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Founder of modern Turkey 22.09.1924 Turkish politician & reformer (1881 - 1938)
A wonderful thing. Follows on nicely from my Charles Martel post. The US needs to be doing everything possible to support these secularist Turks. If we (collectively, not just the US), through inaction or indifference, allow Turkey to drift towards more radical Islam the negative ramifications are enormous. The first step is for the EU to immediately set up a timetable for admission. If they are not willing to do it then the US should offer a very favorable free trade agreement at least.
