Turkey is just so un-European

behold the un-European Turkey.

More like an African tin pot!

I apologize to African Nations for the comparison because I know some are trying very hard and have better HR than the un-European Turkey.

The EU has been on the nose for a long while B25.

Sometimes I think the EU deserves un-European Turkey.

BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Union may not be able to accept Turkey as a member, German parties negotiating a coalition government have said, while making clear the EU's "privileged relationship" with Ankara should be developed further.

In a paper on foreign policy, Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives and the center-left Social Democrats (SPD) describe EU membership talks with Turkey as "open-ended". A coalition panel led by Merkel is expected approve the paper on Tuesday.

The wording is slightly tougher than the language in a 2005 coalition contract between the parties. That document, put together shortly after EU membership talks with Turkey began, said Germany had a "special interest" in deepening ties with Turkey and linking it to the EU, without explicitly supporting or rejecting full membership.

Since then, public support in Turkey for joining the EU has slumped and German doubts about Ankara's candidacy have grown, following the Turkish government's crackdown on protests earlier this year.

"If the EU is not in a position to accept (new members) or if Turkey is not able to fully meet the criteria for membership, Turkey should be bound closer to European structures, allowing it to further develop the privileged relationship it enjoys with the EU and Germany," reads the paper, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters.

Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) and their Bavarian allies, the Christian Social Union (CSU), have long been wary about allowing a largely Muslim country of 76 million people into the EU. But the SPD has supported the idea; talks on Turkey's joining began under Merkel's SPD predecessor, Gerhard Schroeder.

Earlier this month, Turkey and the EU began a new round of membership negotiations. The start of the talks had been delayed since June, after Germany and several other EU governments blocked them. They cited Ankara's response to the protests, when six people were killed and 8,000 injured.

"The talks that began in 2005 with the goal of membership are an open-ended process, with no automatism and a result that cannot be guaranteed beforehand," the coalition document reads.

This is bloody hilarious! Turkey - a candidate for EU accession - joins Euroskeptic group in EU parliament. :shock:

Was this Bagis's idea? :lol:

Angry at Christian Democrats, AK Party joins Euroskeptics in surprise move

Turkey's ruling party has joined the Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists (AECR) -- a Euroskeptic party -- after a long period as an “observer” within the largest political group in the European Union, the Christian Democrats (EPP).

The AK Party is deeply disappointed by its treatment at the hands of the Christian Democrats, who are mostly against Turkish membership in the European Union. However, the AK Party, which defines itself as a “conservative democrat” party, surprised many seasoned observers in Brussels by joining AECR. Many called it a very bad move, and it has fed suspicions that the AK Party has given up on the EU process.

It doesn't seem so strange since their main aim is to destroy Europe.

I am sure the EU has the capacity to self destruct without Turkey's help...personally I would be withdrawing all the privileges and benefits given to Turkey by the EU, such as the customs union, etc.

If country's like Greece and cyprus is accepted into the eu .well it looks like the eu has dropped their standards so low to allow 2 country's that have gone bankrupt in then they can stoop even lower to let the mother of all corrupt country like turkey in. They will never be allowed into the eu. This is one subject we will agree on without a doubt because erdogan has sealed turkey's future with eu which is there won't be a turkey with eu. Why they still carry on with meetings I don't understand. I never understood why they allowed cyprus into the eu without a settlement.

Having values and morals has nothing to do with money or bankruptcy. You can have all the money in the world and still be a dirty swine like you. Money does not make the man and you are certainly no man regardless if you have money or not!
