    Nobody cares anymore about EU in Turkey to be honest. I can write something longer than this later.

    I think you can't really compare Germany Turks with Turkey people. I have tons of siblings who lives in Germany and even we don't like them. Old ones are mostly unedicated workers who just went to work. And you can't say Germans communicated a lot with them. Both sides has mistakes. There are reasons why they didnt became more like them.

    I don't see a lot problems with Greece to be honest. Our old ones didn't like them just because our education system. We are learning Turkey is always alone, nobody likes us, if there were a chance they would kill us, they want our lands or something like that. But when people are ecutaing themselves, you just see there isn't much problem. The only real problem is Cyprus problem i think? I think this should decided by Cyprus Turks.

    Armenian issue is really problematic. We were also learning something like 4T plan. There were terror organization in Turkey named ASALA. And their plan was like this
    Tanıtım,Tanınma,Tazminat,Toprak. It means they want to force people to accept genocide with terror, when everybody accept is Turkey will accept, then they will want return, and we will have to give our east lands to Armenians in order to build Big Armenia. That's what everybody learn in Turkey.
    In my opinion there were killing for both sides. And Turkey should apologize if we need to. But calling genocide is to harsh, big. I don't think there were something like Hitler did.

    Well our prez has %40-50 votes. There are also a lot people who just didn't vote. I really dont know about this. Turkey's vote system sucks, really can't trust. Anyway when he tried to enter EU, EU just slapped him in the face. Then he changed his politics and went for more Islamic.

    I think the real problems are social. Turkey is like two country. West side is okay for EU more for than Balcan countries in my opinion. My Souteast is like middle-east, and rest of east is fanatic islam people. Education system is really sucks, there are even places who just doesn't get electric. And this will not be solved anytime soon.

    Personally yes, i want to travel without visa problem :) , realisticly no for question. Turkey need to do a lot.

    I do not think so, especially with what the leader noted last month about women not being equal to men
    có che un pòpoło no 'l defende pi ła só łéngua el xe prónto par èser s'ciavo

    when a people no longer dares to defend its language it is ripe for slavery.

    I think Turkey should NOT join EU.
    I dont view them as European completely. Their culture and politics are different as well.

    I don't want Turkey in the EU. I don't want to pay for their bankruptcy in the next 10 - 20 years.

    the situation of human rights in Turkey is not comparable to those of Greece, Hungary or Poland
    I don't trust Erdogan. He is a big hero in Turkey now but IMO he'll lead Turkey into bankruptcy within 10-20 years.

    Seeing how Europe has been accepting north Africans, Africans, middle easterners, south Asians, Jamaicans in the last 100 years, it's not a matter of if but when Turkey will become part of EU.

    ==

    Belarusians have been Christian and part of Europe since the beginning. It doesn't look as we will ever join the European Union. Many people are disgusted that we're not part of European community politically and economically. We have cultural, linguistic, genetic, historic ties with Europeans. Good luck to Turkey.

    No, it shouldn't join the European Union. It would be a catastrophe! An emerging economy with 80 million inhabitants of which a big part is willing to seek for better opportunities in Europe. If 500.000 muslim refugees are that big of a deal, imagine 10.000.000 turks, Europeans would desesperatily start voting extreme-right parties and it would trigger several conflicts across the continent. I don't see Turkey joining, I think they are just putting pressure to get money from European authorities.

    Turkey will never join EU, unless there would be a very reasonable geo strategic argument on the future.
    The liberal democratic standards in Turkey declined the last couple years

    IMO, they are blackmailing Europe for 2 reasons: 1) money 2) to scare Europeans, which would eventually result in extreme-right and Eurosceptic parties rising and taking power, which would lead to European desintegration. Thus, Turkey could fufill its expansionist desires and regain the Balkans, riviving the Ottoman Empire. Maybe I'm exaggerating, but it's pretty possible as you can see in recent events and measures the president is taking.

    The second reason you had drawn it's a bit difficult. How Turkey may revive the ottoman empire as long as it shares the borders will Bulgaria and Greece. Do you think Turkey would start a war against them? I don't think so. Turkey has not the power to gain anything in Balkans.
