Jokes aside. The core problem in ME is the countless of fractions that has heavily deteriorated after the invasion of Iraq. There is complete distablization in that country in this very moment. Approximately a million people, most of them innocent civillians, have died as a direct result of the war, and millions have fled their homes.
Where do these fractions stem from? It is partly to blame on Muslims as well, i accept that. We were deceived by the material richness that oil brought us (Arabs). Once the idea of nationalism was incorporated into our minds, we slowly forgot our core humanistic values. That is, we forgot that people are inherently not profit maximizing creatures, who are solely egocentric<--- That idea comes directly from the European canon of politics and literature. It is the very mental status that today's people are indoctrinated in. The Western mentality (here Turkey is included) solely drives on "bettering" our conditions constantly, while ignoring the consequences of those actions. Consequences to both ourselves and to others (poor countries). We are living in a perpetual disillusioned state where we try to think that happiness can be gained egocentrically. But there is a paradox in the latter. Why is it that the highest suicide rates are in countries with highest HDI (life quality)? Humans want to help one another we want to live by each other happiness and not by each others misery, that is our origins.

2 F-35 is a nice number for initial batch. UK ordered 3 and Dutch ordered just 1.
The 2 F-35 Turkey ordered is LRIP V standarts and Following years, With LRIP 7-8 with block-II and III softwares, The orders will follow with more numbers up to 116 F-35 to fullfll the requirements of TurAF...
Sad but There is a fact that No country in world (Including China and Russia) has neither technology nor budget to develop an equialent of F-35 (The issue isn't constructing an aircraft with stealth structure). F-35 under the hands of TurAF pilots would be a real game challanger in region and Turkey is planning to order the latest matured standarts of F-35. The aircrafts Turkey ordered will be manufactured with the parts coming from %50-55 Turkey %45-50 Foreign.
Turkey could help the States in arabian Peninsula to train Personal in Military Tactic and Maintinance, that armed Forces must not rely on Mercenaries. Turkish Companies can built Joint - Ventures with arab Companies and sharing Technologies, that arabs can establish an indigenous Defence Industry with Turkeys help. Sooner or later I hope Islamic Countries found similar Companies like Airbus or EADS.
If you check population growth in Iraq you will see that after 2003 it grew exactly the same way as before:
World Bank, World Development Indicators - Google Public Data Explorer
As for violence among Muslims it existed long before the West, Tamerlane killed more Muslims than all Crusaders combined. west brought technologies with resulted in rapid growth of Muslim population. Average life expectancy in Ottoman empire before Western intervention was less than 25 years.
Why don't we make the average life expectancy in Ottoman 12 years old, it sounds better to the ears.
My father trained many Saudi pilots, that's why you will have the best pilots. After Pakistan of course.Again we do NOT rely on mercenaries in our armies. Our army is all of our country's people. yes true we do have a number of foreign contractors working on our maintenance but that number is decreasing every year. We do realize our short coming and we ARE working on fixing them. For instance our military celebrated this year that our entire helicopter program from education to maintenance training even is done by nationals not foreign people. And I expect such news to be more common in all fields.
As for sectatrian violence it would explode sooner or later anyway.
Because 12 would be not true, while 25 is true.Why don't we make the average life expectancy in Ottoman 12 years old, it sounds better to the ears.
