Why You Should Care about Turkey

Bonnie Boyd has an excellent post today (the link "Turkey and the West" is on the sidebar) about how the West has mishandled its relations with Turkey. While relations with Turkey are largely ignored in the media and this last round has only gotten a bit more coverage, it is an important issue. Boyd sums it up nicely in her last paragraph:
So, my fellow Westerners: let’s think again about dissing our best friend and most faithful representative out there in the world at large. Those whom we would like to have as friends watch us: they see how we treat the friends we already have.

Hear that, US Congress? And the EU?

Ms. Pelosi and her puppet Mr. Reid have really botched this thing up. I cannot believe that she would introduce a bill denouncing Turkey right now. It never ceases to amaze me at how little our representatives actually know about the world and history.
