TURKEY AS A COUNTRY OF MISSED OPPORTUNITIES: A CALL FOR A MAJOR REVISION IN TURKISH POLITICS

Turkey as A Country of Missed Opportunities: A Call For a Major Revision in Turkish Politics
As Prime Minister Prof. Davutoğlu once said, Turkey is a country of opportunities. We keep missing economic, political and historical opportunities one after the other. Even worse, we keep blaming “others,” mostly western powers for all the bad things happen to us where in fact we ourselves are the ones who share the bigger part of the responsibility. We are the ones who could not change the Constitution for 14 years, we ourselves neglected EU “homeworks,” democratic-political reforms, we are the ones who started repeating the same old mistakes the ancient Kemalist regime had done for decades, we kept dragging in completing the reforms to permanently solve the Kurdish problem and related terror… But it is always the outsiders, some sort of “supra intellect,” the westerners, big powers and the imperialists are responsible; we are the good, they are the bad guys…
