Is there a means out for Turkey? Yes, there may be.
In the final couple of days Ankara realized it has no choices however both to proceed with its non-sense rhetoric and drive the nation in direction of dismemberment, or compromise with Europe, the United States and NATO. In this context, Turkey has, with modest delight, watered-down its belligerent perspective in direction of the European Union, particularly Greece and France, which is being obtained by the block with reserved optimism.
Earlier this week, “New Europe Online” add an evaluation on the matter which went viral on the web (Turkey triggers the ultimate dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire), which gave the general image of the Turkish deadlock.
The highway to democracy for Turkey is troublesome.
It will probably be troublesome for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to conceptualize that for every little thing there’s a starting, a center and an finish. That means his authoritarian rule has come to the top. He has both to channel a brave high to backside change in direction of democratization and switch Turkey from an Islamic risk to Europe right into a bridge between Christian Europe and the Muslim world, or see the Kurdish metropolis of Erbil change into the capital of a brand new state.
Despite his conceitedness, we belief that Erdogan is an clever patriot and won’t let his nation down.
It will probably be additionally troublesome, much more troublesome, for the democrats who will succeed him in energy to behave democratically. If they wish to Westernize Turkey, they have to understand that in democracies, elected presidents, once they retire, are neither despatched to jail nor to the firing squad. They go home.
This is the way in which. It is the easiest way ahead for Turkey.
