@OKANsays Anyway. Read the report, it's well done. Whether it will happen or not, again, another issue.

Sep 01, 2014

@OKANsays Seems like you agree with writer about ideal Turkey policy. Value of this sort of writing an entirely different discussion.

Sep 01, 2014

@OKANsays again, it's not about what will happen. let me ask you: what policy SHOULD Turkey govt adopt?

Sep 01, 2014

@OKANsays Possibly. But much more admirable than throwing hands up, whining. But good luck with that.

Sep 01, 2014

@OKANsays Or the world should try to guide this govt toward a better policy, as this writer does.

Sep 01, 2014

@OKANsays Thus, writer's living in same reality you're living in -- in which Turkey SHOULD adopt zero tolerance policy.

Sep 01, 2014

@OKANsays Story says nothing about will or won't. It's about should.
