That would be awesome if Constantinople could be resurrected. I'd also like to see bigger Jewish/Christian populations in the Middle East..like it was before.

You mean before they were ethnically cleansed by the Arab and Turkish Muslims?


I agree that Turkey does not deserve this city. We need to take it back by force and give it to Greece. Erdogan has lost Turkey their NATO privileges. It's time for Constantinople to return.

I know people laugh EVERYTIME I say this, but it's totally going in the direction of Russia annexing Istanbul at some point. Especially if Turkey gets itself kicked out of NATO.

Good. Maybe they will fix the Hagia Sophia and take down all the extra shit Turkey desecrated it with

We need to kick Turkey out of NATO. They are supplying information and aid to ISIS. They are our enemies.

Time to take our nuclear weapons out of Turkey.

Euro's need to terminate their associate membership of the EU and kick them out of UEFA too.

Culturally, socially, politically they are not Europeans.

I am hopeful to see Erdogan get the Saddam treatment in my lifetimes. If he stays in power and continues down his retarded path, I think it's safe to see that coming within 10-15 years

talking about the Crescent Moon and star.....only fitting that the symbol of that religion is something you best see at night when itīs dark.......dark like the minds of the sheep that follow it.

Most people don't look forward to nighttime, most folks prefer a sunny day over a dark night........a dark night, perfect for a terrible nightmare, where you wake up soaked in sweat.

yes, the Crescent Moon and star are truly the perfect symbol for them.
