Turkey is a country which is not in the middle east,but close to middle east and it is on the lands called anatolia
which can be considered as one of the birth places of modernization
in the ancient history.For those who claim that Turkey slaughtered other nations,I suggest you make some research about one country before making comments about it.Here are the obvious facts,Turkey has been tried to be taken over by many countries in the beginning of the recent century.Although it was thoroughly a mistake for Turkey to join the WW1,it was on the losing side after all.But Turkey being taken over by other countries,it claimed a new war only by itself for its freedom against England,French,Greek,Italy which are the countries that tried to take over Turkey,and won a glorious victory against them.So I suggest to some people that it is not that easy to take over this country if you have a little glimpse to its history.Yet today as in other definitions here,people without the spirit of research making claim just by hearing some gossip in some unscientific arguments that it is a country which slaughtered its neighbours .(and i said greek and Iraq fought against Turkey in the WW1,which is an obvious controversy to those claims,now who is slaughtering the other?)
Turkey with a with one of the biggest triumphs against its enemies in history,is a country that is impossible to take over without one single Turk being alive.
