    I can't bring myself to dismiss the deaths of hundreds of Kurdish civilians as a 'mere detail'.

    Bit surprised you can.

    Sarcastic much? Moi?

    I was seeking (but failing) to suggest that members of the EU might find it surprisingly easy to accommodate all sorts of wrongdoing provided Turkey kept migrants from their borders.

    On that I agree... I just don't agree with your portrayal of Erdogan. He's a dangerous 'friend' in the region. Aren't they all

    Was Osama not a 'friend' at one point?

    Not to mention our lovely Saudi 'friends'. Ugh.

    Bet the Janissary with the green gown has hat envy.

    They're supposed to have been fierce soldiers. Silly looking but fierce...

    The only countries allowed to join from Eastern Europe these days are small relatively wealthy ones, like Croatia.

    That was the old Turkey of 3 to 5 years ago.

    There are loads of upsides to Turkey as a country. It's a great place. It's just not ready yet for EU membership, for all the reasons mentioned above.

    Nothing says ferocity like slippers, a pretty flower and some lovely ostrich feathers.

    More empty accusations, I see. That and sarcastic one-liners are all you seem capable of. I've yet to see you put forward any sort of substantial reply or forward any argument. You just snipe.

    For your information, I have no idea why that post was censored.

    Have no idea what that post actually was. I imagine, however, it was deeply unpleasant judging by Lanokia's reaction.

    Incorrect. As you must obviously know, because you are also premoderated, our posts are not allowed to be viewed until they have been vetted. Lanokia's reaction was, therefore, not because of the content because he didn't see it, but because of the fact it was censored and he couldn't reply accordingly. You, yet again, jumped to an erroneous conclusion

    In other words, you were wrong again, and can't support your accusations so you lash out. That's all you know how to do. Poor, little you!

    Except you were wrong Vladimir... as usual. You accused me of racism. Out of nowhere.

    It was quite pathetic really.
