Not that I fully intend to plop myself knee-deep in the middle of Greek/Turkish relations, but occurances like this really make me wonder what in the hell Turks are thinking. Its not like this is a random occurrance, Turkish fighter planes enter Greek airspace ALL the time. Turkish ships enter Greek waters (sometimes with cameramen in tow). The only reason I can think of this aggression is that they are assholes. Pardon my language, but really. Greek military folks stay the hell away from Turkey, they don't even go there on vacation. They don't play chicken in Turkish airspace just to piss them off. They don't badger the Turkish Coast Guard with claims that "these are OUR waters". As a matter of fact, if so much as a Greek mercantile ship crosses into Turkish waters illegally, they get punished by the Greek government.
Now I do not represent an EU citizen in any way, shape, or form, but should Turkey be able to allow the EU? For one thing, excuse me, but pushing Europe across the Aegean is going just a bit too far. Geographically, of course they aren't Europe. Just because they occupied parts of Europe at one time doesn't make them part of Europe. Culturally they don't seem very European, but I guess they are trying to be. I don't have objections to a Muslim nation being part of the EU, but I bet other very Christian countries do. Of course, Turkey has tried very hard to curb their human rights violations to be in line with EU membership. Well, thank god for THAT. We'd hate to ask them to be reasonable, after all, torture has been a Turkish custom for quite some time. I mean, its not like they are trying to join the U.S.
At any rate, it seems that Turkish leaders do want to improve Greek/Turkish relations. Apparently, they just don't have control of their military.
