Turkey and the EU

There are probably lots of good reasons for the EU to bring Turkey into their club. However, taking a page out of the bush playbook is not one of them:

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned European Union leaders that violence from Islamic extremists could escalate if the EU rejects Turkey as a member.
But, then, extortion is an oft used tool of government.

Via the Mahalanobis.
