Maybe that is what made Obama like them?
That was not the Turkish government - that was criminals and terrorists. We even have those here.
What the Turkish government has done is send troops to Afghanistan in support of our mission. Having a country perceived as muslim on our side is a big asset.
I have worked with Turkish soldiers and I have no complaints about them. Like the U.S., they have a secular government and pretty substantial freedom, compared to others in the area and most countries with a muslim majority.
Pigeon chess - "having a pointless debate with somebody utterly ignorant of the subject matter, but standing on a dogmatic position that cannot be moved with any amount of education or logic, but who always proclaims victory."
