As George Washington said in his farewell letter:
“The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is, in extending our commercial relations to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop.”From Washington's Blog:
Czech President Milos Zeman said yesterday (English translation):Turkey's EU accession is Europe's decision but if you saw the way Erdogan played played Merkel, the Eurocrats better be operating at the top of their game.
I think [Turkey] is indeed a member of NATO, but sometimes behaves as if more was an ally of the Islamic Republic: removes oil from the Syrian sites, which finances the Islamic state.He is one hundred percent right …
They do not like the Kurds, which are the only ones who fought effectively with the Islamic state. That is why Turkey [should be viewed] with caution and why it should not be an EU member.
